If You Won't

The most practical, beautiful, workable philosophy won't work- if you won't.

-- Zig Ziglar

Hugging has no unpleasant side effects and is all natural.
There are no batteries to replace,
it's inflation-proof and non-fattening
with no monthly payments.
It's non-taxable, non-polluting,
and is, of course, fully refundable.

Make it a bad moment, not a bad day.

Life Hopes Dreams Goals

"Where there is life, there is hope. Where there are hopes,
there are dreams. Where there are vivid dreams repeated, they
become goals. Goals become the action plans and game plans
that winners dwell on in intricate detail, knowing that
achievement is almost automatic when the goal becomes an inner
commitment. The response to the challenges of life --
purpose -- is the healing balm that enables each of us to face
up to adversity and strife."

*-- Denis Waitley

"Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude."

Tons of Discipline

How tall will a tree grow? As tall as it possibly can. Human beings,

the full measure of the challenge and see what all you can do?"
