“Set your mind on a definite goal and observe how quickly the world stands aside to let you pass.”
So what are your excuses today? Stop wasting valuable time creating excuses as to why you don’t deserve to reach your goals. Go and get it! Take those excuses, write them down on a sheet of paper and then throw it away. Go get it!! The excuses stop right here and right now. I believe in YOU!
My mom sent me an email yesterday that I wanted to share with all of you. Just a few little suggestions that she gave to me that are worth thinking about……
Just always remember:
1. Everything happens for a reason.
2. What is happening may NOT always be about you.
3. God’s plans and your plans may not be the same.
4. God’s plan is ALWAYS better than yours.
I guess mom does know best!
“You have to rely on your support system. Growing up, I always thought it was a sign if weakness to ask for help, but now I realize that it’s really a sign of strength to say, “I need help, I can’t do it all.”

“I set my phone with motivational quotes to go off on random days and times, like, ‘You’re stronger than you think you are.’. I’ll forget about it, then one will pop up and it’ll give me a little boost.”

“Somewhere behind the athlete you’ve become and the hours of practice and the coaches who have pushed you is a little girl who fell in love with the game and never looked back… play for her.”
-Mia Hamm, 40, Olympic Soccer Gold Medalist
“The triumph can’t be had without the struggle.”

I was talking to my mom this morning about the US economy and the current job market crisis that our country is currently facing. My younger sister who graduated college last month, called us and was complaining about how she can’t get anybody to hire her and that she needs a job.
This lead the three of us into a conversation about the power of positive thinking and about thinking outside of the box. My mom asked me if I had ever heard about the man who traded a red paperclip for a house on Ebay. I knew nothing about this but was intrigued by the story after reading about it.
If you don’t this story, here’s a link to it. This just proves how you can make things happen for yourself when you have the ability think outside of the box.
