"A winner is someone who recognizes his God-given talents, works his tail off to develop them into skills, and uses these skills to accomplish his goals" ~ Larry Bird. The problem is, like Mark Twain said, "We are always more anxious to be distinguished for a talent which we do not possess, than to be praised for the fifteen which we do posses". Remember, "Everyone has talent. What is rare is the courage to follow the talent to the dark place where it leads ~ Erica Mann Jong
"Seems to me that there is a fine line between insanity and dedication…I call that line commitment." ― Jeremy Aldana
Everyone of us has a dream or a goal. But do you ever wonder why not everyone of us achieves that goal? The key to achieving any dream you have in life is to go out and work your dream. No dream will ever come to pass unless you work towards making sure it does. Want to see your dream coming true? Make a plan and work that plan every day until you realize your dream.
There is no reward for finishing life first. However, there are many rewards for living life well. Something wonderful happens every day if you pay attention. But if you are zipping along life at breakneck speeds, how will you notice it? Life is a journey. Like every journey, you are bound to experience various obstacles along your path. Will you give up on reaching your destination because of obstacles? You shouldn't. Instead, purpose to enjoy every minute of your journey thorugh life, obstacles and all. In short, life is do or die. Life is a journey that must be traveled no matter how bad the roads and accomodations are. Others may be there to go through your journey with you, but no one will be there to go through the journey for you. You must do it yourself. Lastly, remember that life is not a destination. It is a journey to be savored and enjoyed every second you are alive.
Just because Fate doesn’t deal you the right cards, it doesn?t mean you should give up. It just means you have to play the cards you get to their maximum potential - Les Brown
Fake friends are so easy to find and equally easy to loose. But real friends, those are the hardest to find and the hardest to lose. They are like precious jewellery. .... Fake is the new trend and some of my friends seem to be in style.
Why Focus? Because like Henry Ford said, "Obstacles are the frightful things you see when you shift your eyes from your goal..." Stay Focused.
.... Why? Because two WRONGS don't make a RIGHT.
Every so often we go through stuff in life, either knowingly or unknowingly, that affect our identity, bringing in lots of insecurity to us. Sometimes we might not even know about them but the moment we become aware of them, then it becomes a problem right there. Here below I have shared with you two sides of a story that you must have read severally before. Read them to the end and think about the lessons presented in them. ========================================================================================= 1 – Fable of the Eagle and the Chicken - Scenario One A baby eagle became orphaned when something happened to his parents. He glided down to the ground from his nest but was not yet able to fly. A man picked him up. The man took him to a farmer and said, “This is a special kind of barnyard chicken that will grow up big.” The farmer said, “Don’t look like no barnyard chicken to me.” “Oh yes, it is. You will be glad to own it.” The farmer took the baby eagle and placed it with... [Continue reading]
Time is your most precious gift because you only have a set amount of it. You can make more money, but you can't make more time. When you give someone your time, you are giving them a portion of your life that you'll never get back. Your time is your life. That is why the greatest gift you can give someone is your time. Telling someone that you love them but you do not show it through your actions and through your time, then those are very empty words. True and genuine love should not be just words and talk; true love shows itself in action, and for actions to happen there must be time. That is why LOVE is spelled "T-I-M-E.”

Each one of us can do a good deed, every day and everywhere. In hospitals in desperate need of volunteers, in homes for the elderly where our parents and grandparents are longing for a smile, a listening ear, in the street, in our workplaces and especially at home. Remember: "The evil you do remains with you: The good you do, comes back to you!"
