MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE OF THE DAY

“Pursuing your passion is fulfilling
and leads to financial freedom.”

— Robert G. Allen: Financial adviser, author

*******Your passion is the key to your success.  People will often tell you the thing you are passionate about will not lead to making a large sum of money.  What a large sum of money to one person is not always viewed the same in another’s eyes.  It is up to you to determine what success means.  Being financially free doesn’t always mean being a millionaire, sometimes it’s just enough to be comfortable and debt free.  If you are passionate enough about your career choice, you will automatically come up with ways to make a living doing it.  Here’s to our passions!!!*******

SONG/VIDEO OF THE DAY
ROCKY MUSIC VIDEO-EYE OF THE TIGER-SURVIVOR
*******Today was a rough day for me.  I hit the ground running from the second my alarm went off at 6:00 a.m.  I’m still processing all of the chaos from the day, so I won’t attempt to even explain what happened (I can also be pretty long-winded and not many people like that).  Anywho…I’ve had a continuous tear dripping out of the left corner of my left eye all day.  I’ve wanted to smoke a cigarette, scream, cry, throw myself on the floor and have a good temper tantrum, but none of that would solve anything.  On my way home, I heard “Eye of the Tiger” and actually listened to every single word of the song.  Just when I was about to let the tears flow, I smiled instead.  I found a new theme song.  I’m rising up and facing my battles.  I can do it and you can too.*******
