Positive Thoughts

Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity. - Seneca

What is now proved was once only imagined. - William Blake 
Your life begins to change the day you take responsibility for it.

 A person who says it cannot be done should not interrupt the man doing it. -Chinese Proverb

Of all the choices you make each day none is more important than the choice of a positive attitude.
People rarely succeed unless they have fun in what they are doing - Dale Carnegie

Remember that sometimes not getting what you want is a wonderful stroke of luck. — Dalai Lama
There will always be someone who thinks you can't succeed. Make sure that someone is never you

You may live in a world you did not choose, but you always get to choose how you live in this world.

Your life may not be what you want it to be, but the fact you are breathing and reading this is proof of . Live today with purpose.

When you can't control what's happening, challenge yourself to control how you respond

Do your best. Forget the rest.

Vision: leaders know where they are going and are able to persuade other people to go along with them.

 Do you have a personal Purpose and Mission statement?
Things do not happen. Things are made to happen. - John F. Kennedy 
Focus on relationships, not transactions. People buy from people  they know and trust, more than from those just trying to sell.
Today is a day you will never get to do over again. Make it count.

The best use of life is love. The best expression of love is time. The best time to love is now. ~ Rick Warren 

It's always too early to quit. ~Norman Peale 
Joy is the holy fire that keeps our purpose warm and our intelligence aglow. ~ Helen Keller

Your success is determined by the story you are telling yourself about what is possible.  If you are not experiencing the level of success you want, it is time to create a new story.  A story with passion, purpose and vision for your life and business.

Serenity Parayer Adapted for ADD

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; 

The insight to prioritize wisely what I want to change; 

The patience to resist trying to control everything I could, had I the energy and time; 

The courage and skill to change the things I have chosen to change; 

And the wisdom to know the differences among all these.

- Dr. Edward Hallowell
