Reason #1 Not To Take the Easy Road

August 6, 2012…

#1. If we take the easy road once, we unfortunately make it easier every time after that when things get hard to take it again. Follow the easy route too many times, and our lives end up being filled by talking about others' success rather than living our own success.

July 31, 2012…

Life skies can get dark, and life can get a bit rugged at times. But remember, you always have the choice to take command of your life and set a new attitude course. You can choose to do it at anytime...and at any instant.
I have always found "now" to be the best time.
