Ten Things to Remember

February 7, 2010

I don’t remember where I got this, but I really like it.  I hope you do, too!

How you think is everything:  Always be positive.  Think success, not failure.  Beware of a negative environment.

Decide upon your true dreams and goals:  Write down your specific goals and develop a plan to reach them.

Take action:  Goals are nothing without action.  Don’t be afraid to get started.  Just do it.

Never stop learning:  Go back to school or read books. Get training and acquire skills.

Be persistent and work hard:  Success is a marathon, not a sprint.  Never give up.

Learn to analyze details:  Get all the facts, all the input.  Learn from your mistakes.

Focus your time and money:  Don’t let other people or things distract you.

Don’t be afraid to innovate; be different: Following the herd is a sure way to mediocrity.

Deal and communicate with people effectively:  No person is an island.  Learn to understand and motivate others.

Be honest and dependable; take responsibility:  Otherwise, No’s. 1-9 won’t matter.


My soon-to-be-thirteen-year-old son Jacob started a new webiste and blog to share his thoughts.  You can see it here at www.bibleinsight.weebly.com.  Give him a look and let us know what you think.  He’s a deep thinker and I love the way his mind works!

How We Should Live…

February 7, 2010

I have always loved these words of wisdom by Mother Theresa.  No matter how many times I read them, I always get something out of them.  I thought today was a good day to share them.

People are often unreasonable, illogical and self-centered.  Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.  Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies.  Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and frank, people may be cheat you.  Be honest and frank anyway.  What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight.  Build anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous.  Be happy anyway.  The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow.  Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough.  Give the world the best you’ve got anyway.

You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God.  It was never between you and them anyway.

–   Mother Theresa
