“Terrorist attacks can shake the foundations
of the tallest buildings,
but they cannot touch the foundation of America.
We will not tire. We will not falter. We will not fail.”
~ George W. Bush
I clearly remember that day as I’m sure you do too, if you were old enough.
No mater what nationality you are, religion, or political view, don’t let others touch the foundation of who you are.
May we remember and honor those who lost their lives to help save the lives of others. And may there be peace around the world.
“I tried carrying the weight of the world,
but I only have two hands.”
~ “Wake me up,” Avicii
What’s weighing you down?
What have you taken on that can be postponed, delegated, or otherwise taken off your “To Do List.”
Feel the lifted weight off your shoulders by focusing only on that which you can do with ease and joy.
“It is only through labor and painful effort,
by grim energy and resolute courage,
that we move on to better things.”
~ Theodore Roosevelt
To grow and develop – whether it be as a person, a team, or a country – we need to step outside our confirm zone, take risks, and stretch ourselves.
What will YOU do this week to stretch yourself?
Happy Labor Day!
“I give myself permission
to be powerful.”

“The more that you read,
the more things you will know.
The more that you learn,
the more places you’ll go.”

Reading expands your mind.
It can expose you to events, facts, and fantasies around the world and beyond.
Your challenge, if you choose to accept it, is to find a good book and make time to READ!
Bonus points if you do it the old fashion way by reading an actual hard copy book, not electronic.
“No one but you knows how hard you work,
how many hours you put in behind the scenes,
so rely on YOURSELF for approval,
not the outside world.”
What recognition are you looking for?
How are YOU going to celebrate your hard work today?
May we think of freedom,
not as the right to do as we please,
but as the opportunity
to do what is right.”
~ Peter Marshall
Happy 4th of July!
May we rejoice in the freedoms we have, remember the people who sacrificed to allow us these freedoms, and make wise choices with our freedom.
You have CHOICES in life.
Are you making the right ones?
“A father is
neither an anchor to hold us back
nor a sail to take us there,
but a guiding light whose love shows us the way.”
Happy Father’s Day to all the men who have loved, guided, supported, and nurtured children to find their own path in life.
Happy Father’s Day!
“You have brains in your head,
you have feet in your shoes.
