    Motivational Quote of the Day – 28 Nov 2011 – Am I Resourceful Enough? 


    “A resourceful person can see opportunity when others only see obstacles.”

    — Garrett Gunderson: is an entrepreneur and author

    *******One of the biggest differences between success and failure is the amount of resources you seek out to accomplish your goal.  Due to some dire times in the past, I have had to learn how to be very resourceful.  One of the best compliments I received was when a friend told me she knew she could ask me about pretty much anything and I could tell her where to go or who to call for help.  I never viewed anything as an obstacle, but a challenge waiting for me to rise up to and conquer.  I’m grateful for those hard times for they taught me how to be a survivor that remains unflappable.*******

    Motivational Quote/Word/Song/Video of the Day – 11 Oct 2011 


    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!!!*******

    — Mary E. Waller, The Windmill on the Dune

    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.*******
