Hello Paul - the "proof" this works is not in repeating the quote over and over but by putting those words into behavior.  Of course, easier "said" than "done" may come to mind but that mindset is definitely necessary.

Yes, I am not one to settle for "good" so I totally get this one!

Have a wonderful day!

Such a cute puppy, I am sure that he brings a lot of joy to your world and you bring a lot of joy to his as well.

Good morning Paul,

As usual another great quote. Not sure if I've heard this one before but I can relate. Love the photo of this adorable puppy!

What a cool quote, Paul... and what a cute puppy! Although, I'd guess young Master Boomer is somewhat bigger these days.

Hi Paul - I didn't know who made the quote but that is what my father used to say.

Hi Paul and Happy Monday- I could look at Boomer all day!  That quote reminds me of something Dr. Seuss would say. We all tell our children to do their best and we should be doing the same.
