If you wake up every new day thinking of the same old things, then you set yourself up for the same old fall." -- Unknown

Self improvement!!!


 
"Be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind. Talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person you meet. Make all your friends feel there is something special in them. Look at the sunny side of everything. Think only of the best, work only for the best, and expect only the best. Be as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own. Forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future. Give everyone a smile. Spend so much time improving yourself that you have no time left to criticize others. Be too big for worry and too noble for anger."
 
-- Christian Larsen

Today's Inspirational Quote:


 
"Accepting responsibility for your life means understanding that YOU are responsible for creating the life you want to live. If you don't do it, who else will? This is a tremendously empowering realization, or at least it was for me. When I realized I was responsible for myself, I stopped making excuses and I stopped waiting for others to help me. Instead, I started changing my life. I'll say it again: YOU can decide what you want your life to be about."
 
-- Ryan Murdock

-- Duke Ellington 
 

Today's Inspirational Quote:


 
"Don't rely on someone else for your happiness and self-worth. Only you can be responsible for that. If you can't love and respect yourself -- no one else will be able to make that happen.

-- Stacey Charter

-- Mark Ford

potential, and then taking small steps to support that shift.
It's about showing up for yourself, day by day, and then one
day finding that you've undergone a transformation."

learning is dangerous."

journey, the sweeter the arrival at your destination. All good
things are worth waiting for and worth fighting for."
