QUOTES OF THE WEEK

"I skate to where the puck is going to be, not where it is."
- Wayne Gretzky
"Happiness is good health, and a bad memory."
- Ingrid Bergman
Do You Have What it Takes to Succeed?
Here are five great assessment questions to find out
1. Do you believe you are worthy?
Do you believe you are more
than worthy? Do you believe -- without compromise -- that it's only a
matter of time before you realize your goals?
2. Do you have a dream?
3. Are You Willing to Do What it
Takes to Succeed?
4. Are You Willing to take Risks?
5. Are You Willing to Be Persistent?
I have a friend who earns over a million dollars a year as National Director of a cosmetics firm. She tells me she probably would have been content as a sales person, or in a low-paying job. "But I made a decision and a promise to myself to persist, until I reached all my written goals. I had some lean times -- lots of microwave popcorn lunch and dinners. But I saw the big picture and stayed inspired by Napoleon Hill's words, 'Persist, until.' Those two words kept me going when I felt like quitting."
So ... how did you do?
If you answered "YES" to all five questions, then, much success to you!
Is the scale showing you a number that you like to divide? Are time-consuming tasks keeping you from doing what needs to be done? Is the garage and the cars that sleep in it in dire need of de-cluttering? If so, schedule a meeting with yourself. Evaluate your entire life and then create a plan to make the changes necessary.

Motivation From Within by Denis Waitley
Motivation is a contraction of motive and action. An inner force that compels behavior comes from within, not from any external circumstance. You know where you're going because you have a compelling image inside, not a travel poster on the wall, a financial statement with a big bonus, or a slogan in the hall.
The performance of many externally motivated individuals begins declining as soon as they win contests of one sort or another. I've personally witnessed this among Super Bowl champions and World Cup teams that lost the incentive to maintain their excellence after winning the cup, the honors, and the cash. If you're really committed to peak performance and leadership, you must motivate yourself from within.
Behavioral scientists have found that independent desire for excellence -- an inner drive -- is the most telling predictor of significant achievement. In other words, the success of our efforts depends less on the efforts themselves than on our motives. The most successful companies, like the most successful men and women in almost all fields, have achieved their greatness out of a desire to express what they felt had to be expressed.
Often it was a desire to use their skills to their utmost in order to solve a problem. This is not to say that many of them did not also earn a great deal of money and prestige. William Shakespeare, Thomas Edison, Estee Lauder, Walt Disney, Oprah Winfrey, Sam Walton and Bill Gates all became wealthy. But far more than thoughts of profit, the key to their success was inspiration and inner drive. This was done by creating or providing excellence in a product or a service. All were motivated by the desire to produce the very best that was in them.
Enduring motivation must always come ultimately from within the individual. That's why empowerment and vision are so crucial to team performance and quality. Their power and their vision, not those of the leader must compel team members. Commit to achieving peak performance and leadership, by motivating yourself from within!

Aspirin is the well-known, "wonder drug" can help lower the risk of a heart attack or stroke. It can also aids in keeping arteries open for those who have had a previous heart bypass or another artery-opening procedure, such as angioplasty. Aspirin is given to people who arrive at a hospital emergency department with a suspected heart attack or stroke.
However, aspirin is not approved by the Food and Drug Administration for the prevention of heart attacks in people who have never had a heart attack or stroke. Aspirin can cause serious side effects and may mix dangerously with other medicines. If you are thinking about using aspirin for heart problems, talk with your doctor first. If your doctor believes that aspirin is a good choice for you, be sure to take the recommended dose.

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. For more information about ways you can partner with us, visit
