The Boy Scouts' Motto

That's an old joke, I know.  When going on a date where something "might happen" be prepared. Carry necessary items with you to avoid trouble.  Even if the lady (or guy -- as the case may be), smiles and says, "Don't worry, nothing is going to happen," it doesn't hurt to be prepared.

Phrases like...

Cultivating Habits

See also the post on perseverance.

"As long as life is made up of habits, why not try to cultivate as many good ones as possible? It is easier to be happy than to be miserable, once we have put our mind to it.  It is better to find things to smile about and to look forward to than it is to complain, to find something…

Wake Up: an Idea from God is within You.

I liked Robert Schuller's lesson so much today (October 26, 2010), I decided to write down the key points and share them here. Actually I dictated them orally into my iPad using a free application called Dragon Dictate. The voice to text wasn't perfect, but close enough for a first draft. I then edited the…

Success Requires Actions

Your success will always be connected with your actions.

Just keep moving towards your goal.

You'll make mistakes but don't ever quit.You may even have to hang on after others have let go.

Persistence means taking pains to overcome every obstacle.

Big thinking precedes big achievement.

YOU'VE GOT TO THINK BIG TO BE BIG

If you don't have a dream, how are you going to make it come true?

High achievement always takes place in the framework of high expectation.
You'll always hit what you aim for in the long run.
Why not aim high?

Have the courage to follow your dreams.
It's the first step towards attaining your destiny.

Big thinking precedes big achievement.
