"Nothing will work unless you do."
Dr. Maya Angelou 

"Age wrinkles the body.  Quitting wrinkles the soul."
- Douglas McArthur

"Do not look where you fell, but where you slipped."
- African proverb

Where Did Your Quarter Go?
It's not often that a single quarter lasts a lifetime.  Just as there are four quarters in every dollar; there are four quarters in every year.  As of today, one of your "quarters" are now gone.
How did you spend it?  Or, did you invest it?  Was it misplaced?  Stolen?  Or did you lose it in a "cushion?"
At any rate, take in account you still have three quarters left.  Now, I know that doesn't sound like much to get you through the remainder of the year.  However, used wisely, you can earn a lifetime's worth of substantial earned interest and reap huge dividends.
-Excerpt from the book, Seeds for Success by Fran Briggs
The WIT to WIN 
Here's a great strategy for monumental success.  Make a list of "What's Important Today."  This is you WIT. Next, immediately begin working on 
"What's Important Now."   This is your WIN.  Your WIN represents each
itemized priority on your list.  When you get one WIN under your belt, immediately go after the next one; and then the one after that...

Power Hour Goal Setting

Reach any ambition or goal by setting hourly, power goals.  Sound like a time-consuming, arduous task?  Well, that's because it only sounds like a time-consuming, arduous task.  In all actuality, setting a goal for each of your waking hours can be exciting, challenging and life-transforming. 
If you made a goal to eliminate Pepsi Cola from your list of beverages of choice. Do so; one hour at a time.  Affirm your commitment with written and verbal statements.  Avoid stating or writing down anything that even remotely sounds like: "I will not have a Pepsi-Cola this hour."  You'll be sacked with a lack attack!  Instead, write down and state out loud: "I am replacing seltzer water (or another beverage) for Pepsi Cola this hour."  Each "Pepsi-free" hour becomes a power hour.  And, a string of power hours can represent the most incredible day.  Make every hour a power hour and put yourself on the fastrack to an amazing life.
Mind Your Money  by Cheryl Broussard  
Set Up a Savings Plan. The earlier the better. When you begin your savings plan, your first goal is to build a money cushion -- three to six monthsí salary -- to tie you over in case of a "cash crunch."  You want quick access to the money so keep it in a money market account with check writing privileges or a savings account. If saving money isnít quite your cup of tea, make it easy on yourself by setting up your savings plan with an automatic transfer from your paycheck into the account. Itís a no-brainer and youíve paid yourself first!

Your vision is the picture of the outcome you want to create or experience.   Therefore, your vision is something that you want to keep near -- not far.  The
more vivid and real your vision is, the more enthusiasm and inspiration you will generate for realizing it. It's time to stop admiring your vision from a distance.  Keep your vision up close and personal.  Focus -- really zoom in on your vision today.  Then, move toward it with intention and conviction. 
Write Down Your Top Five Accomplishments For The Quarter
This exercise is simple, affirming, and incredibly powerful. The quarter often passes by so quickly that, we often forget to recognize the amazing tasks that we accomplished.  Sometime today, take the time and write down your "Top Five Accomplishments for the Quarter."  Read each one out loud.  You'll discover that you will be incredibly inspired.  So, go ahead and celebrate with a stretch.  Make a list of ten accomplishments you'd like to target for the next three months.
You're Invited
 The Don't Think Like an Elephant National Reading Tour needs the support of individuals and the corporate community to provide school children across America with the resources they need to achieve without limitations. 
There are many different opportunities for businesses or corporations to partner with the tour which aims to show children how to rise far above their potential, and see well beyond their immediate circumstances. 
The initiative is seeking businesses and corporations whose philanthropic goals align with the mission of
Phoenix Children's Hospital  (my charity of choice) and the tour.  As a donor or corporate partner, you can make a meaningful commitment to the execution and actualization of this mission.  Specifically, in the lives of over 200,000 children, and in more than 1,126 communities across America, over a 23 month period.
