'It is for us to pray not for tasks equal to our powers, but for powers equal to our tasks, to go forward with a great desire forever beating at the door of our hearts as we travel toward our distant goal.~Helen Keller
"In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit." - Albert Schweitzer
"Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around." - Leo Buscaglia
The opportunity for a new life and a new lifestyle has been handed to each and every one of us... I've dreamed of this for years... but am I acting on my dreams or am I continuing to simply dream with no action?
The opportunity to change is there, the opportunity to better ourselves is in our grasp and yet... for some... it's still a dream! All of the ideas are there, all of the concepts have been presented, all of the planning, all of the good intention are all there but the dream isn't being realized! We seem to be just dreaming about change!
You have to make your own opportunities for change! You have to dream the dream and make your dreams a reality by following through on your dreams!. Your future is not a matter of chance. It's a matter of your choice. It's not something you wait for. It's something you must actively pursue. To simply dream is planting the seed but to nurture that seed, work with the growth and eventually realize the dream is an entire different story!
The time to act on your dreams is NOW! Don't wait until the opportunity has passed you by! The Opportunity knocks daily and it's up to us to answer that knock and open the door to our success! It's time to realize our goals and get to where we want to be!
Don't wait for extraordinary opportunities. Seize common occasions and make them great. Opportunity can come disguised in the form of misfortune, or temporary defeat and I know... I'm on the mend now because I didn't watch closely enough to my lifestyle and my nutrition and exercise requirements! Good intention and dreams are fine but we must act to make our dreams come true!
Start today, right where you are. Don't let another... another minute pass you by! The time is right... Make your life better... make every minute count! Your dreams will come true.
You can live a great dream if you pursue it.
Don't miss out on another opportunity because your were dreaming! Take the opportunity and run with it! You can do it! I know that you can!
Life is too short to waste! You deserve the best that life can offer! Always remember: You're worth it!
Until Next Time...
