Setbacks Are Not Important!



“Setbacks are not important as long as the general movement of our lives is upward. If we worry too much about setbacks they can be a real hindrance. The tide goes back a little but not to its old mark. Then it comes again and this time it moves higher than ever.”   ~Emmet Fox


Dare To Be!

When a new day begins, dare to smile gratefully.

When there is darkness, dare to be the first to shine a light.

When there is injustice, dare to be the first to condemn it.

When something seems difficult, dare to do it anyway.

When life seems to beat you down, dare to fight back.

When there seems to be no hope, dare to find some.

When you’re feeling tired, dare to keep going.

When times are tough, dare to be tougher.

When love hurts you, dare to love again.

When someone is hurting, dare to help them heal.

When another is lost, dare to help them find the way.

When a friend falls, dare to be the first to extend a hand.

When you cross paths with another, dare to make them smile.

When you feel great, dare to help someone else feel great too.

When the day has ended, dare to feel as you’ve done your best.

Dare to be the best you can –

At all times, Dare to be!”

Do Something For Yourself Today!



Do Something For Yourself Today! You can’t get back a minute of your life. Become aware of the ways in which you gladly take on and accept the problems and challenges in other’s lives, instead of dealing with your own life or your future. Your life does not exist to trade your time to pay for what others want. You are not here to rescue them from how they have decided to live their lives.

How are others using your time, talents, skills, experiences and knowledge for their bottom line, or to make their lives easier? If you weren’t around, they would figure it out! Live in your own life and stop rescuing other people from the paths they have chosen for themselves. Ask yourself…is their commitment to act boldly and change their life as strong as their willingness to expect you to help or pay for them? Master the art of saying “yes” to you and your life. You deserve!
