Wow! It’s almost August and soon the kids are back to school! This can be
a great relief to many moms, dads and grandparents, but it also can be a
very busy and difficult time for others.
We all greatly influence children – our own, our relatives, our next door
neighbor. I recently read this piece by Ralph Marston and I wanted to
share it with you!
Give, and you will have.
Teach, and you will learn.
Listen, and you will be understood.
Live with kindness,
And kindness will live with you.
Respect, and you will be respected.
Be truthful, and it will be nearly impossible
for others to deceive you.
Keep a generous spirit,
And your life will be filled with abundance.
Seek to bring out the best in others,
And they’ll give you the best they have.
Give your genuine encouragement
To those who thirst for it most,
And you’ll be encouraged beyond all measure.
Speak positively of your world,
And your world will be a rich and fulfilling place.
The world you influence with your
THOUGHTS, WORDS and ACTIONS is the
World in which you live.
Always be your best,
and that world is a GREAT place to be.
Isn’t that powerful? I have decided that I am going to read that over
every morning for the next 30 days. I encourage you to do the same. In
fact, I challenge you to do it. It can change your whole perspective. I
dare you¼ try it. Read it twice a day if needed.
Continue to share the gifts within you.
Life is good & getting better all the time,
It was glorious to wake up this morning to
the sound of the birds chirping.
As I walked the beach this morning I had a feeling of new beginnings. I
decided it was time for me to review my goals and I encourage you to do
the same. Take a step!
Have you ever eagerly shared a goal or a dream with a friend? Before you
can get out two sentences, your friend cautions you that it’s not the
right timing or it’s going to be too difficult.
Our fondest dreams may very well be our most valuable possessions. And yet
we don’t protect them nearly as well as we do our material assets. And
unlike material possessions our dreams are often stolen by those people
who are closest to us. Usually well intended, but misdirected friends and
relatives can do us the greatest harm – by pouring cold water on our hopes
Is there something you’ve been putting off? Is there something you have
wanted to do, and you have been waiting for the perfect time to do it?
Today is that time. Right now is the time to make the first step, to get
started. Don’t wait any longer. If you intend to do it, prove it with your
actions today! Make a true commitment. Go beyond “thinking about it.”
Thinking is great way to start. Now YOU must take action.
Are conditions absolutely perfect today? No, and they may never be. Every
day from now until the end of time there will be a completely reasonable,
entirely valid excuse for not going forward. You must ask yourself if you
are ready to stop wasting your energy on excuses and start putting that
energy to work with your actions.
Choose to go forward today. Commit to the future with positive action.
Right now there is a step you can take. I encourage you to use all the
wonderful resources available to your through PWP! And I look forward to
you sharing your success stories.
Celebrate the gifts within you today and always. Congratulations in
Life is good,
