The power to live an extraordinary life is not defined by anything other than your willingness and desire to step out of the ordinary. Be daring and develop a vision of what is on the other side. Step into the unknown and live an extraordinary life.


Thought for Today Monday, December 5, 2016


Everyone has goals, aspirations, plans and wants. Everyone is looking for something different, perhaps something better. Everyone believes that somewhere out there there’s something to be claimed. Everyone is looking for their own pot of gold.

Everyone sets a goal because they believe that reaching this goal is the key to something. Everyone believes that opportunity awaits if only they reach this goal. Everyone thinks this. Well, at least they should.

Above It All

“Above it all, to thine own self…be true.” ~ William Shakespeare

I spent most of my life looking for something, and everywhere I turned someone tried to tell me what it was.  I accepted their answers too, though they were often in contradiction and even self-contradictory.  I was naïve.  I was looking for myself and asking everyone except myself questions which I, and only I, could answer.  It took me a long time and much painful boomeranging of my expectations to achieve a realization everyone else appears to have been born with:  that I am nobody but myself.

Self Esteem and Self Confidence

“Nothing builds self-esteem and self-confidence like accomplishments.” ~ Thomas Carlyle.

How true this is.  For anyone lacking in either category, self-esteem or self-confidence the answer and solution to your own situation is very simple:

Build a series of accomplishments.  Regardless of the size or magnitude of the accomplishment, to you they should be just that… accomplishments.  Start by setting small, easily attainable goals, with a little effort and a little work, you should be able to accomplish these.

The best time to tackle a new and maybe greater goal is immediately after a victory.  Then the snow ball will grow.  One success will build from the other and so on.  Before you know it self-esteem and self-confidence have grown to a level you never thought possible.

Good Luck.
