These three qualities are most important for "the long haul": Remain calm in every situation, maintain constant concentration on the ultimate goal, and posses the necessary, honorable character.

Stay Positive around Negativity..... It is so easy to fall into the world of negativity! Actually, for some people, being negative is more comforting than being positive. Why? Because being negative doesn't take strength. However, being positive does take STRENGTH!!! and PRACTICE!!!!

Ego says, 'Once everything falls into place, I'll find my peace.'
Spirit says, 'Find your peace, and then, everything will fall into place.'

Pain and suffering are the sensations of weakness leaving the body and being replaced with examples and memories of discipline.

"There are no original ideas. What there is - and this is something no one understands - is that it is never about the idea, it is about the execution of the idea." - John Landis

Greed leads to misjudgment and that can lead to the loss of resources. Further along the economic principle, the loss of resources deteriorates into the loss of self confidence, and such a loss of economic faith can lead to desperation. Once desperation is achieved, and employed, gambling becomes the last recourse of the desperate. And far to often, we foolishly risk losing what we have, to chance, when we are gripped by the hands of ignorance and desperation.

Never permit doubt to deteriorate the faith, developed over an extended period of time, to deteriorate economic investments.

With pride comes dishonor.
With humility comes wisdom.

Fear of success (which is the fear of working towards success) and the fear of failure (which is the fear of losing the rewards of success) will paralyze.

We change for one of two reasons: either we've learned enough to want to change and experience the personal growth the change will bring about, or we've suffered enough pain from our foolish ignorance to need to change for our own betterment.

It is important to master three types of focus: First, we must master our own self awareness. Then, we must master recognizing and respecting the focus of others. And finally, we must master assessing the environment we occupy.

Great relationships consist of two very important qualities. The first would be appreciating the similarities between each other, and the second would be respecting the differences between each other.

When I'm worried and I can't sleep, I count my blessings instead of sheep, and I fall asleep counting my blessings. When my bankroll is getting small, I think of when I had none at all, and I fall asleep counting my blessings ~ Bing Crosby

Whenever we find ourselves doubting how we will carry on from our present troubles, we must remind ourselves how far we have come. We must remember all the troubles and fears we have previously faced, and all the struggles we have previously confronted and overcome.

Be Good to yourself:

Be yourself, truthfully.
Accept yourself, gratefully.
Value yourself, joyfully.
Forgive yourself, completely.
Treat yourself, generously.
Balance yourself, harmoniously.
Bless yourself, abundantly.
Trust yourself, confidently.
Love yourself, wholeheartedly.
Empower yourself, immediately.
Give to yourself, enthusiastically.
Express yourself, radiantly. And do all accomplish all these goals with Courage,Perseverance, Patience, Bravery, Forgiveness and Redemption.


The battle ground for our beliefs, confidence and faith is fought within our minds. We will win or loose our battles for controlling our lives, first, in our minds.

We must be our own before we can be another's. Coming together is a beginning; remaining together is progress; working together is success.

I do believe knowing oneself is a great wisdom, however, knowing oneself is a lifelong project. One in which many beneficial elements must auspiciously materialise for wisdom to develop within any individual. A crucial element for wisdom to develop is to have the good fortune of being in the company of generous people willing to share their knowledge. For those among us who haven't had the good fortune of being born into such an auspicious situation, or those among us who haven't found the favor of such a benevolent situation, wisdom often becomes a most difficult and painful acquisition. And far to often, when we are bereft of knowledge, accident and bitter experience becomes our sternest teacher.

Good things come to those who believe, better things come to those who wait and the best things come to those who never give up.
