The Monday Message.....

Education & Training with SendOutCards-Appreciation Marketing Expert
Welcome to this edition of My Monday Message.....This week we have the opportunity to forget about our past mistakes or failures and realize our future is not determined by the past, but rather by what we do today. Life is a collection of millions and millions of decisions and actions. You can make a ton of mistakes. You can choose the wrong road sometimes. The best part about life is that you always, always, always can make another choice. You can make another decision. You can get up and work harder and smarter and make a difference for the better. You just have to want to. Today, this week, and every day going forward let us take what life has to give us and make something of it. Let us go out and get what we want. Let us make a positive difference for all those around us. Let's make this the best week of the year!!!
"The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It's a very mean and nasty place and I don't care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't about how hard ya hit. It's about how hard you can get it and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done! Now if you know what you're worth then go out and get what you're worth. But ya gotta be willing to take the hits, and not pointing fingers saying you ain't where you wanna be because of him, or her, or anybody! Cowards do that and that ain't you! You're better than that!" - Rocky Balboa
It takes Courage
It takes strength to be firm,
It takes courage to be gentle.

It takes strength to conquer,
It takes courage to surrender.

It takes strength to be certain,
It takes courage to have doubt.

It takes strength to fit in,
It takes courage to stand out.

It takes strength to feel a friend's pain,
It takes courage to feel your own pain.

It takes strength to endure abuse,
It takes courage to stop it.

It takes strength to stand alone,
It takes courage to lean on another.

It takes strength to love,
It takes courage to be loved.

It takes strength to survive,
It takes courage to live.
Every day do something that will inch you closer to a better tomorrow.

Our greatest glory is not in never falling but in rising every time we fall.

Thanks, Jay... The secret of life isn't what happens to you, but what you do with what happens to you by Dr. Norman Vincent Peale resonates with me.

Love that! Thanks Jay! My latest thing is using success, failure, and everything in between as a learning experience.
