1. Section One 9/27/2020

What’s done is done. Stop trying to breathe life into dead situations. Leave it alone and move forward. Your future is waiting

Sometimes you have to forget what's gone, appreciate what remains, and look forward to what's coming next.

Search a beautiful heart not a beautiful face. Beautiful things are not always good but good things are always beautiful.Good evening.

Every saint has a past.Every sinner has a future.

There are people who will put you down in life, mock your dream, challenge your personality. They will look like as if they are winners but in actual fact, They are only voicing out their insecurities and jealousy.  Don't let anybody pull you down. Believe and accept yourself and hold onto what you believe in. When you have to start compromising yourself or your morals for the people around you, it's probably time to change the people around you. Appreciate those who love you and help those who need you, forgive those who hurt you and forget those who leave you! Focus on claiming your destiny

Life is like a piano it has white keys and black keys..the white keys represent happiness and the black keys represent sadness..but as you go through lifes journey, remember that the black keys also create music...

The prettiest smiles hide the deepest secrets. The prettiest eyes have cried the most tears. And the kindest hearts have felt the most pain

You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.

Never too old, never too bad, never too late, never too sick to start from scratch once again.

Empathy~personally or professionally~has become a lost art in the midst of technological advances, and so many drilling towards monetary gain to sustain themselves. People have forgotten how important it is to see through the eyes of another, to use their heart to feel and walk in another's shoes without judgment. To have a mind of your own. Amazing how little effort it takes to extend another some grace and understanding. Take a second look respond with your hearts rather than rely on others."Don't believe everything you hear. REAL EYES, REALIZE. REAL LIES.

As a member of the human race, you are equal to all other human beings in the world. Never forget that.

When someone tells me “no,” it doesn’t mean I can’t do it, it simply means I can’t do it with them.

People are made to be loved, and things are made to be used- the confusion in thisworld is because people are being used and things are being loved

Each and every day, each and every one of us, pass through our lives with limited appreciation for our true quantum potential. We are so focused on the approval and acceptance of those at work, those we meet up with; hoping society will embrace our individual uniqueness and flaws. We are so absorbed with pleasing people and in becoming socialites, we lose perspective of what is really important: APPRECIATING OURSELVES. Don't allow others to use you as a doormat and make sure that you are allowing only people and things into your life that DESERVE you and your attention.

It’s not only what you bring to the table but how you serve it.55. REMEMBER, trust and credibility take years to develop but can be lost in seconds.

We find violence ever growing in the world today; or have we been violent since our beginning? We find suffering ever growing in our world today; or have we been suffering since our beginning? We find fear the emotion that is growing today; or has fear been with us since our beginning? We will take life at manylevels of life to survive in the world today; or have we been doing this since our beginning? Violence is what life often is, suffering is what life often is, fear is a part of living life. And killing is what life makes plane we will do to survive, as life will always consume life...But we human animals do have a choice as to how we will live and be consumed in life. as love for life and all who suffer the violence needlessly, all who fear in life can love the experience of living and do so with dignity by "Doing unto others as you would have them do unto you".

Life is a precious gift that people take for granted. A lot of people think that many moments are just ordinary but they aren't for the simple reason you are alive to enjoy it. Life is a gift, enjoy it, life is full of extraordinary moments, enjoy them!

The process of becoming a leader is not easy or comfortable but the trials and challenges are necessary. How else can you lead and teach others if you have not been taught yourself. Consider the mentors in your life. Ask them about how they got where they are. The stories will be different than what you think you see. You will hear that they faced great challenges just as you may be facing now. The difference is that leaders never ever give up. If you have but one follower you are a leader. Do not underestimate the power of YOU! You are strong and beautiful and so worthy of GREATNESS!

He who knows all the answers has not been asked all the questions

Motivational stories are tales that encourage us to be the best we can be. They remind us that there is always a way to achieve something if we want it badly enough, to never give up, and to believe in ourselves. These stories inspire and hearten us by showing how people just like us have found the courage to overcome adversity, make the best of the worst situations, achieve the ‘impossible,’ and refuse to be slowed down by physical limitations.An incredibly inspiring woman was Helen Keller, who refused to let physical limitations stop her from living life to the full. Despite being deaf and blind, she became a well educated, world-famous speaker and writer. She spent much of her life advocating for the rights of the blind, and continues to inspire us with her wonderfully positive ideasViktor Frankl was a psychologist who survived three years in concentration camps in the early 1940s. During his imprisonment, he not only managed to keep a positive attitude, but helped other inmates to overcome the shock and grief they were experiencing. He was able to find meaning in life, amidst unthinkable circumstances, and after his release, spent his life and career inspiring the world to ‘say yes to life in spite of everything.’Those of us who wish to live lives of abundance (and who doesn’t?!) can find great encouragement from motivational stories of ‘rags to riches,’ and of people who have overcome adversity and hardship in life to reach their dreams and financial success.Being motivating and inspiring is not about being rich and famous, it’s simply about following your heart and living your dreams- no matter what. If you look around, there are almost certainly people in your life whose courage, determination, attitudes, and inner glow encourage others without even trying. If you trust your intuition, are true to yourself, and follow your dreams, you will be one of those people whose motivational stories encourage those around them, and your life will be an inspiration.

Where everyone is accountable everyone wins. Where everyone is accountable there is unity and love. Where there is accountability everyone prospers.

Stay strong. Those who overcome great challenges will be changed, and often in unexpected ways. For our struggles enter our lives as unwelcome guests, but they bring valuable gifts. And once the pain subsides, the gifts remain. These gifts are life's true treasures, bought at great price, but cannot be acquired in any other way.

Happy are those who take life day by day, complain very  little and are thankful for the small things in life.

Remove Fear and Eliminate Many of Your ChallengesIt’s unlikely you have any issues in your life that weren’t created by fear. You might not think that your financial or relationship challenges are rooted in fear. However, if you’re honest with yourself, you’ll probably realize that many of your obstacles are caused by your fears and your inability to deal with them in an appropriate way.Consider these examples:Relationship issues. Fear of abandonment is a common fear. It’s also common to fear the loss of autonomy or freedom. Trust issues can also be fear-based. You might be afraid that you won’t be accepted fully.Money issues. Many people deal with fear and anxiety by shopping, which can create debt. Some simply fear discomfort and are unable to let go of that expensive car or morning coffee.Procrastination. Procrastination can be caused by fear of failure or the perceived discomfort of performing an unpleasant task.For example, you might fear you’re missing out on something exciting and check your email instead of working.Stuck in a job you dislike. You might be afraid that no other decent jobs exist for you. You might be fearful of giving up your benefits or getting a new job that pays less. You might be afraid of going through the application process and competing for a better job.These are just a few examples. Consider the other parts of your life that are challenging. Can you see how fear is having a negative impact?How to handle your fears that are holding you back:Realize that fear is uncomfortable, but it isn’t a good reason to avoid doing something. Fear is helpful if you’re considering doing something physically dangerous. But at the end of the day, fear is simply a feeling.There’s no reason to let fear guide every decision you make.Think about the fearful activity and simply breathe. Your body is unable to maintain a fear reaction in the long term. There’s a psychological technique called “flooding.” In flooding, a person is exposed to their fear without being allowed any reprieve.Think about the activity that makes you uncomfortable and focus on taking long, deep breaths. Notice how you start to feel better.Make a list of the ways that fear is holding you back. If some part of your life is in complete turmoil, it’s likely that you made poor decisions in the past. How did fear affect your decision-making abilities at that time?Remember the times you were fearful and still made a good choice. You’ve likely had times where you felt fear but managed to take the appropriate course of action anyway.Remind yourself of those times and remember how strong you can be.Practice dealing with discomfort. Take a situation that you find mildly uncomfortable. Perhaps it’s eating peas or talking to an attractive member of the opposite sex. Force yourself to deal with small doses of the discomfort, and increase the level of exposure over time.Although it’s challenging to give up the habit of avoidance, you’ll be surprised at how much you can tolerate.Realize that discomfort and fear are frequently good things. If you’re not doing anything that makes you uncomfortable, your life is likely to stay the same. It’s only when you push your comfort level that new things can begin to happen.Fear is the most common cause of challenges in life. Learn to work through fear and gain the ability to make positive choices. You’ll boost your self-esteem and enjoy a happier life. Learn to embrace discomfort as a positive sign that your life is about to change for the better. Get started today!

Friends are the most important ingredient in the recipe of life

Treat Them Right By CEO Buck Rogers 6/18/2020 "If a person is wrong still treat them right."* * *

Life doesn't get easier, you just get stronger.

If you think you are having it bad, there are many people in this world that have it so much harder especially after current and recent storms and fires.. Think on these things and how blessed you are. . :)  Have a great day

Life is same for everyone We are all in the same game                With the same rules               But you can choose               To accept or refuse             Whatever life throws your way                               Continue to play                      And don't be shy                         When you're not sure to actUnderstand the process before you react                                Life is what you attract

We all believe that addressing the needs and rights of women and girls throughout  the world is an important component to alleviate poverty, achieve social justice and making progress on our development goals.

Never feel afraid to Raise your Voice for Compassion, Justice, Honesty and Tuth... 3You and 2 others

A relationship without trust is like a car without gas..You can stay in it ..but..it won’t go anywhere

Dear Past, thank you for your lessons..Dear future, I am ready for another chance..

If you can find a path with no obstacles, it probably doesn't lead anywhere

Ambition is not what a man would do, but what a man does, for ambition without action is fantasy

No one ever gets tired of loving, They just get tired of waiting, assuming, hearing lies, saying sorry and hurting.

The problem with waiting until tomorrow is that when it finally arrives it is called today.

Wisdom is not a product of schooling but of the lifelong attempt to acquire it.

Every day may not be good, but there's something good in every day

A person usually makes a lot of hand gestures when telling a true story. When telling a lie, a person’s hands will stay noticeably still.

Learn to ignore the things you can have no control over. Mental strength is like muscle strength--no one has an unlimited supply. So why waste your power on things you can't control? For some people, it's politics. For others, it's family. For others, it's global warming. Whatever it is, you care, and you want others to care. Fine. Do what you can do: Vote. Lend a listening ear. Recycle, and reduce your carbon footprint. Do what you can do. Be your own change--but don't try to make everyone else change. (They won't.)

Excuses are the rocks where our dreams are crushed.

EliminationBy CEO Buck Rogers8/25/2020 So many people try to advance their life and career by simply doing more, ‘working harder’. Although effort is required and working hard is good, just doing more is not going to help you as much you think it will. 

The key to success is to focus on the activities that actually gain the greatest result. Focus can only occur when we have said yes to one option and no to all other options. In other words, elimination is a prerequisite for focus. What you don’t do determines what you can do. Once you figure this out, your progress will rise exponentially!* * *

I try hard to remember that I do not have to be the strongest, or the fastest. But I must remain the free one! Thinking independent of the masses and trusting in my integrity rather then the current politically right speech.

Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades. A mode of conduct, a standard of courage, discipline, fortitude, and integrity can do a great deal to make a woman beautiful...

JUST BECAUSE...By CEO Buck Rogers8/23/2020 Just because no one has been fortunate enough to realize what a gold mine you are,Doesn't mean you shine any less.... Just because no one has been smart enough to figure out that you can't be topped, Doesn't stop you from being the best.... Just because no one has come along to share your life, Doesn't mean that day isn't coming.... Just because no one has made this race worth while, Doesn't give you permission to stop running...

Speak By CEO Buck Rogers8/22/2020 Speak in such a way that others love to listen to you.Listen in such a way that others love speaking to you.* * *

Worry less, smile more, accept criticism, take responsibility. Listen more, embrace change. Feel good about yourself, and live it up

The more light you allow within you, the brighter the world you live in will be.There’s a light inside of everyone. No matter what, someone is always going to come around and try to dim that light or shut it off. Whatever you do, you hold on to that light and you fight. You fight to not let that person tear you down, you fight for the right to define yourself, to not let anyone else tell you who you are. You gotta keep your head up, because people will always hang around waiting for you to fall, for the light to shut off. Don’t ever let someone fade the light that makes you beautiful. Because in the end, you’re the one who controls how brightly you shineMoonlight floods the whole sky from horizon to horizon:::How much it can fill your room depends on it's windows

Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we're here we should dance.

My basic principle is that you don't make decisionsbecause they are easy;you don't make them because they are cheap;you don't make them because they're popular;you make them because they're right...

You are responsible for your own happiness. If you expect others to make you happy, you will always be disappointed.

The right choices make for a good life.  The wrong ones make for good life lessons and more right choices.

Success is a journey, not a destination. The doing is often more important than the outcome

No one has ever made himself GREAT by showing how small someone else is

I Choose… to live by choice, not by chance; to make changes, not excuses; to be motivated, not manipulated; to be useful, not used; to excel, not to compete. I choose self-esteem, not self-pity. I choose to listen to my inner voice, Not the random opinion of others.Good evening

Only if you have been in the deepest valley, can you ever know how magnificent it is to be on the highest mountain.

Don't let your fear of the past affect the outlook of your future. Live for what tomorrow has to bring, not what yesterday has taken away.

Nothing is ever as it seems. What looks bad today, can be a blessing tomorrow.

When the mind is weak,a difficult situation becomes a problem.When the mind is balanced,the same situation becomes a challenge.And when the mind is strong,the same situation becomes an opportunity. Good night!!!

When life is sweet, say thank you and celebrate. When life is bitter, say thank you and grow.

With "tolerance" we serve and help people to find their way. An accepting and impartial outlook on life makes it easier to relate to people from many different ideological, cultural, and spiritual backgrounds. If you do find yourself responding judgmentally to something you see or hear, consider why you are having this reaction? However much we might wish that the people with whom we share our environments might adopt our beliefs and values, we must understand their path is different from ours. Let go of control and condemnation and offer acceptance instead!

If we can not respect another, how can we expect them to respect us? If we can not respect someone’s beliefs, how can we expect them to respect ours? If we can not respect another’s race, how can we expect that race to respect us? If we can not respect others, how can we expect respect in return ? Everyone expects respect and no matter who they are, the only way to gain it, is to start treating everyone as a friend, a brother, a sister as part of our extended family. No matter what colour or creed they are, only then you will start to get the respect you so dearly crave  The harsh reality on all forms.

Face your fear to understand it . . . or it will continue to hold you hostage

Success means having the courage, the determination, & the will to become the person you believe you were meant to be

Champions rarely talk. They just peform, and the world around them talks

Common sense and a sense of humor are the same thing, moving at different speeds. A sense of humor is just common sense, dancing.

Wishing I Had ItBy Buck Rogers [Conservative]8/9/2020 I would much rather go to my grave never needing my gun, then to go there wishing I had it. * * *

Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing

Good things take time It is often said that the secret of victory comes from patience and perseverance.  Sometimes good things happen without warning. Although success does not always depend on luck and fate our true virtue is knowing how to wait for all that good that will come to us one day. We spend all our lives waiting for a miracle to happen, and the only thing we see happening is our life ! You have to know that good things take time, that they do not happen overnight. Thus, most of the time, they really deserve to be expected and will force us to improve as an individual and to persist in our life goals. To wait is part of our constructive behaviors, which will help us to face the reality of the life. adopt a peaceful and confident attitude , despite the lack of activity and think of the benefits that will result from waiting .These behaviors will help us to be relaxed and more open to the world. Each person has a different schedule and it is necessary to respect their own pace.  Tell yourself that most of the items on your famous list are still in progress.  Some dreams will not be fulfilled , but many will be too . Everything will be built.  We are neither early nor late.We must simply live our time : and time always rewards the one who knows how to be patient !

Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment

We look forward to the time when the power to love will replacethe love of power, then will our world know the blessing of peace

Let Others LeadBy CEO Buck Rogers 7/6/2020 The wise person and warrior focuses on feeling through their intuition rather than action or outer show. The rely on their inner strength like a powerful but gentle mare, and subsequently that gentle but powerful mare "lets herself be guided and is skilled at graceful acceptance." This translates to being broad and deep in attitude~allowing yourself to use your intuition and FEEL your actions rather than through bold outer show actions because sometimes you have to let others LEAD, while you allow your natural responsiveness to guide you! * * *

Sometimes the right person was there all along, but you never saw them because the wrong person was in the way.

Sometimes in life we have to go through the dark only to see the light at the end of the tunnelLife gives us hard evidence, but keep in mind that everything you are experiencing now will make you stronger in the futureTesting is a purification, a form to improve in this life you have to endure, to master patience.

ChangeBy CEO Buck Rogers8/7/2020 "Love is nothing without action. Trust is nothing without proof. Regret is nothing without change."

Ask the sands of the oceans from where they have come. They have come from the mountains. They will tell you a great secret: ‘Water wins finally. We were hard, and we thought that water cannot win. We were very, very settled; we could not believe that this poor water, so soft, unharming, unhurting, nonviolent could destroy us. But it destroyed us. That is the beauty of feminine energy. Don't be like a rock. Be like water, soft, feminine. And victory is yours. Water is the softest thing, yet it can penetrate mountains and earth.  This shows clearly of softness overcoming hardness.

The real battle takes place in your mind. If you’re defeated in your thoughts, you’ve already lost battle to claim your destiny. Set your mind up for victory. They might doubt You, Scorn your aspirations, eliminate you from their circles. Don't worry! Just keep your focus on your destiny and victory. Believe me with determination, faith and hard work you will prove them wrong by claiming your destiny, great success. Embarrass them with your massive success!  Be strong, but not rude. Remember to be kind,be bold, be humble, be proud not arrogant. Claim your destiny. Best wishes.

Keep your THOUGHTS POSITIVE because- Your thoughts become your words.Keep your WORDS POSITIVE because- Your words become your behavior.Keep your BEHAVIOR POSITIVE because - Your behavior becomes your habit.Keep your HABIT POSITIVE because- Your habits become your values.Keep your VALUES POSITIVE because - Your values become your destiny.

2. Section Two 8/4/2020

Anyone can give up, it is the easiest thing in the world  to do..but to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that's true strength


When I have coffee with you, I feel the first coffee tree has been seeded just for this moment~. We are a set of emotions!We have to express and feel them all without hesitation to grow & understand life more!  They are at the heart of every interaction & "Only from the heart you can touch the sky".~ Rumi No matter how much busy you are, show love for those who have been there always for you. Some of them might not be there for long. "You can't stop time. You can't capture light. You can only turn your face up and let it rain down". Kim Edwards Appreciate what you have & who you have, because the future can take them all away from you anytime. Do it before it is too late.Say it before you run out of time. Love is about mutual appreciation and admiration.It does not require something in return. The greatest gift we can give to others is love without expectations! Wish you a great day & night.


Refuse to LoseBy CEO Buck Rogers7/21/2020Refuse to lose, refuse to be defeated, refuse to be cheated and refuse to have regrets. Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth


Something to ponder on for the weekend...EVIL. It can be as big as murder or as small as a lie. Indulgence and corruption grow like weeds in an untended garden. They must be faced squarely and rooted out through bold action. The successful person master's the art of honesty much as a swordsman masters fencing. When lies, delusions and game playing are getting in the way of teamwork, a swift sword of honest action, perhaps even correction, must be wielded to protect one's integrity and values. Decisiveness with integrity brings good fortune, but it is no simple task.

Only You Are Responsible By CEO Buck Rogers7/13/2020"So many people can be responsible for your success, but only you are responsible for your failure."
* * *


Never forget that your life is bigger than your fears ...your forces are greater than your doubts.While your mind is confused ...your heart will always know the answer.what is difficult today ..tomorrow will be a treasure. Fight for what you really want will fill the soul,and if you have the virtue of knowing how to wait ..because everything has to be ...WILL BE!


True words aren’t eloquent; eloquent words aren’t true. Wise men don’t need to prove their point; men who need to prove their point aren’t wise. The Master has no possessions. The more he does for others, the happier he is. The more he gives to others, the wealthier he is.


Think success, don’t think failure. Let the master thought of “I can….I will succeed!” dominate your thinking process. Thinking success conditions your mind to create plans that produce success


The best gift you could ever give someone is your TIME because you're giving them something that you'll never get back.


Never expect things to happen, it's better to feel surprised than to feel disappointed.

I have forgiven mistakes that were unforgivable I have tried to replace those who were irreplaceable and tried to forget those who were unforgettable.In the secret of my heart teach me wisdomI have laughed when It was almost impossible to laugh. I have held someone to protect them. I have made life long friends, I’ve loved and been loved. I have screamed and jumped for joy, I have lived on love and made eternal promises of love.I have fallen many times..I have fallen in love with a smile.What is really good is to fight with determination, embrace life and live it with passion. Lose your battles with class and dare to win because the world belongs to those who dare to live.Life is worth too much to be insignificant

Whoever is reading this, you are beautiful and someone out there is crazy about you. So smile, life is too short to be unhappy..


The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.

As I began to love myself I found that anguish and emotional suffering are only warning signs that I was living against my own truth. Today, I know, this is “AUTHENTICITY”.As I began to love myself I understood how much it can offend somebody if I try to force my desires on this person, even though I knew the time was not right and the person was not ready for it, and even though this person was me. Today I call it “RESPECT”.As I began to love myself I stopped craving for a different life, and I could see that everything that surrounded me was inviting me to grow. Today I call it “MATURITY”.As I began to love myself I understood that at any circumstance, I am in the right place at the right time, and everything happens at the exactly right moment. So I could be calm. Today I call it “SELF-CONFIDENCE”.As I began to love myself I quit stealing my own time, and I stopped designing huge projects for the future. Today, I only do what brings me joy and happiness, things I love to do and that make my heart cheer, and I do them in my own way and in my own rhythm. Today I call it “SIMPLICITY”.As I began to love myself I freed myself of anything that is no good for my health – food, people, things, situations, and everything that drew me down and away from myself. At first I called this attitude a healthy egoism. Today I know it is “LOVE OF ONESELF”.As I began to love myself I quit trying to always be right, and ever since I was wrong less of the time. Today I discovered that is “MODESTY”.As I began to love myself I refused to go on living in the past and worrying about the future. Now, I only live for the moment, where everything is happening. Today I live each day, day by day, and I call it “FULFILLMENT”.As I began to love myself I recognized that my mind can disturb me and it can make me sick. But as I connected it to my heart, my mind became a valuable ally. Today I call this connection “WISDOM OF THE HEART”.We no longer need to fear arguments, confrontations or any kind of problems with ourselves or others. Even stars collide, and out of their crashing new worlds are born. Today I know “THAT IS LIFE”!

As many of you know, I co-edited an anthology of writings by Voltairine de Cleyre. This may be my favorite quote from her.  “Let every woman ask herself: "Why am I the slave of man? Why is my brain said not to be the equal of his brain? Why is my work notpaid equally with his? Why must my body be controlled by my husband? Why may he take my labor in the household, giving me in exchange what he deems fit? Why may he take my children from me? Will them away while yet unborn?" Let every woman ask.”-- Voltairine de Cleyre


Hard work spotlights the character of people: some turn up their sleeves, some turn up their noses, and some don’t turn up at all.


There is no paradise without hellThere is no pleasure without pain        Life is full of paradoxesLet's just call them challengesEverything we do has consequences             Every choice countsEvery single word changes your life           For better or for worseIf you want to live a peaceful life       You must respect one ruleControl yourself before it controls youIt is as simple and as complicated as that

Flows to MeBy CEO Buck Rogers7/3/2020 "When I run after what I think I want, my days are a furnace of stress and anxiety;  If I sit in my own place of patience, what I need flows to me, and without pain.  From this I understand that what I want also wants me, is looking for me and attracting me.  There is a great secret here for anyone who can grasp it."* * *


If you can speak what you will never hear, if you can write what you will never read, you have done rare things.


The definition of a Yes-Man:  “A weak person who always agrees with their political leader or their superior at work.”  Phew! I’m ok here, I definitely speak my mind and have my own opinions, and do not always agree. So what’s am I? what’s wrong with me?  • I like to see all the check boxes checked next to my To Do list • I like to stay busy • I like to feel accomplished • I like to make a difference   So, I’m thinking it turns out that the only problem I have here is moderation… Are you the same way?  What I’ve found is, if you are good at what you do, you will be given more opportunities and responsibilities. This is a good thing because it helps us grow and excel even more. At some point however, we need to take greater responsibility and know when the load is full without usurping time and cycles from other aspects of our lives. Every day, work will still be there, there will always be more to do. Work and feel fulfilled. Do what you are passionate about. But when the [work]day is done. Be satisfied with what you’ve completed and walk away til tomorrow. Managers will not think less of you. Recharge, Balance your life, and be ready for what tomorrow brings.


Don't make life too stressful ..Always find time to laugh. It may not add years to your life, but it adds more life to your years


Behind Every ProfileBy CEO Buck Rogers6/28/2020 🛑Sincere APOLOGY to my friends.  First, thank you all so much.I would not be able to write a single line if it was not for all the support and inspiration from all of you. Second, I apologize for jamming up your news feeds with my posts, articles etc I only do it because I am very passionate about these principles: ♦️Everyone deserves a chance.♦️Help others not because of who they are, but because of who you are.♦️If they do not value you, they do not deserve you.♦️A great boss believes in you even when you do not.♦️"Your value does not decrease based on someone’s inability to see your worth."♦️Failure is only a failure if we accept it as such.♦️We live for the moment to die for.

It is just a matter of priorities.♦️Seek respect, not attention. It lasts a lot longer. Seek loyalty, not obedience. It is worth a lot more.♦️Success without integrity is failure.♦️When it comes to people, be flexible. When it comes to principles, stand like a rock.♦️Remember, everyone has a story. Behind every profile and resume there is a real person.* * *


Bitter Snow By CEO Buck Rogers6/28/2020 ⚘ Some say love, it is a river, that drowns the tender reedSome say love, it is a razor, that leaves your soul to bleedSome say love, it is a hunger, an endless aching needI say love, it is a flower, and you, its only seedIt's the heart afraid of breaking, that never learns to danceIt's the dream afraid of waking, that never takes the chanceIt's the one who won't be taken, who cannot seem to giveAnd the soul afraid of dying, that never learns to liveWhen the night has been too lonely and the road has been too longAnd you think that love is only for the lucky and the strongJust remember in the winter, far beneath the bitter snowsLies the seed, that with the sun's love in the spring becomes the rose...* * *


Without darkness there would be no sleep; a time to nurture the dreams we keep. May your dreams  gently touch your heart and soul .. scattering stars like a magical memory uniting fantasy and reality .. lighting dark spaces, in and out of shadows ..      Fall asleep with open windows and listen to the symphony of the night


There are few in life very few who have all that they can ever need or dream of which is handed to them. Most people have to get off their asses and make those dreams in to their reality and to work every hour possible to make it come true. Always aim as high as you can as even if you don't reach the dream you will be as close as possible & in fact what you do achieve may be the reality that you need in life. Thank people, Respect Others, Help & Don't Judge anybody and in turn your dreams with your hard work will come true. Trust me I know


Give6/23/2020By CEO Buck Rogers "Among the things you can give and still keep are your word, a smile, and a grateful heart." * * *


“I know from the bottom of my heart and with all of it, that it doesn't matter if at the end of your life you can say that you shared the best of yourself with the rest of the world and it doesn't matter if everyone in the world remembers you as wonderful; but what matters is if at the end of your life you can say that you shared the best of yourself with the handful of people who are around you, that you gave the wonderful in you, to the people you love and who love you. Happiness never has and never will come from fame.

A friend who understands your tears is much more valuable then a lot of friends who only know your smile


Quit trying to please everyone. Get this through your head — you are not responsible for other people's happiness. It is exclusively other people's responsibility to please themselves. Be authentic and please yourself, which is perfect for running-off the people who need to go, and bringing-in the people who should be in your life. We sure aren't taught this as children are we? When children are taught to be "good" and keep everyone happy, it teaches them that they have the impossible burden of being responsible for other people's happiness. It teaches them that other people's happiness comes before theirs, and they wrap that concept up in a suffocating package called, "not being selfish."


I am in competition with no one. I run my own race.I have no desire to play the game of being better than anyone,in any way, or form.I just aim to improve to be better than I was before. That's me and I'm free.


Life isn't about having things that can make you enjoy your life. It's about enjoying your life with the things you have


A diamond cannot be polished            Without frictionA human being cannot be wise           Without affliction Life is full of ups                         And                             Downs                        When you are upEnjoy it to the fullestAnd     when           you                are                   downPray, hope and adapt                    Tough times reveal                        What is hiddenYour true selfYour true strengthAnd your true friends


When we die, our money remains in the bank... Yet, when we are alive, we don't have enough money to spend. In reality, when we are gone, there is still a lot of money not spent. A business tycoon in China passed away. His widow, left with $1.9 billion in the bank, married his chauffeur. His chauffeur said:- "All the while, I thought I was working for my boss... it is only now, that I realize that my boss was all the time, working for me !!!" The cruel reality is: It is more important to live longer than to have more wealth. So, we must strive to have a strong and healthy body, It really doesn't matter who is working for who. In a high end hand phone, 70% of the functions are useless!For an expensive car, 70% of the speed and gadgets are not needed.If you own a luxurious villa or mansion, 70% of the space is usually not used or occupied.How about your wardrobes of clothes? 70% of them are not worn!A whole life of work and earning... 70% is for other people to spend. So, we must protect and make full use of our 30%. Go for medical check-ups even if not sick. Drink more water, even if not thirsty. Learn to let go, even if faced with grave problems. Endeavor to give in, even if you are in the right. Remain humble, even if you are very rich and powerful. learn to be contented, even if you are not rich. Exercise your mind and body, even if you are very busy.  Make time for people you care about.LIFE IS SHORT... ENJOY & LIVE LIFE TO THE FULLEST!!!🔹Love God and others More!✔🔹Take time to PRAY and Read the Word of God! ✔🔹Drink Plenty of water. ✔🔹EAT:            Breakfast like a KING,            Lunch like a Prince &           Dinner like a pauper. ✔🔹Live with the 3 E's--      Energy,      Enthusiasm &      Empathy.✔🔹Play good games.✔🔹Read more books than you did in 2016.✔🔹Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes each day.✔🔹Sleep for 7 hours.✔🔹Take a 10-30 minutes walk daily And while you walk... Smile.✔🔹Don't over do. Keep your limits.✔🔹Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.✔🔹Don't waste your precious energy on gossip.✔🔹Dream more while you are awake.✔🔹Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.✔🔹Forget issues of the past. Don't remind your partner with his/her mistakes of the past. That will ruin your present Happiness.✔🔹Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. Don't hate others.✔🔹Make peace with your past so it won't spoil the present.✔🔹No one is in charge of your happiness except you.✔🔹Smile and Laugh More.✔🔹You don't have to win every argument, Agree to disagree. ✔🔹Call your family often.✔🔹Each day give something good to others.✔🔹Forgive everyone for everything.✔🔹Spend time with people over the age of 70 & under the age of 6.✔🔹Try to make at least three people smile each day.✔🔹What other people think of you is none of your business.✔🔹Do the right thing!✔🔹GOD heals everything.✔🔹However good or bad a situation is, it will change.✔🔹No matter how you feel, Get up, Dress up and Show up. The best is yet to come.✔🔹When awake in the morning Thank GOD for it.✔🔹Your Inner most is always happy...So, be Happy. ✔

Your thoughts form your character, how you operate in the world, how far you travel mentally, physically, and spiritually. You are what you think you are, and all of your actions proceed from thought. Your inner thoughts will always be reflected in your outer circumstances, because self-generated changes in your life are always preceded by changes in the way you think about something.  As far as your brain, every thought releases brain chemicals. Being focused on negative thoughts effectively saps the brain of its positive forcefulness, slows it down, and can go as far as dimming your brain's ability to function, even creating depression. On the flip side, thinking positive, happy, hopeful, optimistic, joyful thoughts decreases cortisol and produces serotonin, which creates a sense of well-being. This helps your brain function at peak capacity.  Happy thoughts and positive thinking, in general, support brain growth, as well as the generation and reinforcement of new synapses, especially in your prefrontal cortex (PFC), which serves as the integration center of all of your brain-mind functions.  In other words, your PFC not only regulates the signals that your neurons transmit to other brain parts and to your body, it allows you to think about and reflect upon what you are physically doing. In particular, the PFC allows you to control your emotional responses through connections to your deep limbic brain. It gives you the ability to focus on whatever you choose and to gain insight about your thinking processes. The PFC is the only part of your brain that can control your emotions and behaviors and help you focus on whatever goals you elect to pursue. It helps you grow as a human being, change what you wish to change, and live life the way you decide


How I think like a leader. Achieving success requires the help of others. Trade minds with the people you want to influence. "What would I think if I were that person?" Be human, and put people first.


Courage is admitting that you're afraid and facing that fear directly. It's being strong enough to ask for help and humble enough to accept it.  Courage is standing up for what you believe in without worrying about the opinions of others. It's following your own heart, living your own life, and settling for nothing less than the best for yourself.  Courage is daring to take a first step, a big leap, or a different path. It's attempting to do something that no one has done before and all others thought impossible.Courage is keeping heart in the face of disappointment and looking at defeat not as an end but as a new beginning. It's believing that things will ultimately get better even as they get worse.  Courage is being responsible for your own actions and admitting your own mistakes without placing blame on others. It's relying not on others for your success, but on your own skills and efforts.  Courage is refusing to quit even when you're intimidated by impossibility. It's choosing a goal, sticking with it, and finding solutions to the problems.  Courage is thinking big, aiming high, and shooting far. It's taking a dream and doing anything, risking everything, and stopping at nothing to it make it a reality


A beautiful face will age, and a perfect body will change, but an awesome person will always be an awesome person

There's no need to strive to be perfect to inspire others. Let them get inspired by how you deal with your imperfections.


Most of us are Only ONE thought away from CHANGE.Imagine...One thought away to FORGIVENESS. One thought away to ENLIGHTENMENT. One thought away to LOVE. One thought away to Peace-- JOY!A THOUGHT is inspired by an event.---Most often  quite random--impromptu--unplanned. AMAZING. Never loose Hope-for that event can HAPPEN at any moment.


You will notice that those who fear change and resist challenges, stunt their own growth.  Though they may blame others and situations for their circumstances, their biggest obstacle to tackle is themselves.  Difficulties are not the enemy. Embrace change, foster growth; make progress, not excuses.


Your life is your story.. write well, edit often and don't be afraid to start new chapters ..It doesn't matter what's been written in your story so far .. it's how you fill up the rest of the pages that counts Live and fill up those pages


You're never in the wrong place ..Sometimes you're in the right place looking at things in the wrong Way.You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist.


WHEN THINGS GO WRONG- When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,When the funds are low and the debts are high,And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,When care is pressing you down a bit,Rest, if you must, but don't you quit. Life is queer with its twists and turns,As every one of us sometimes learns,And many a failure turns about,When he might have won had he stuck it out;Don't give up though the pace seems slow--You may succeed with another blow. Often the goal is nearer than,It seems to a faint and faltering man,Often the struggler has given up,When he might have captured the victor's cup,And he learned too late when the night slipped down,How close he was to the golden crown. Success is failure turned inside out--The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,And you never can tell how close you are,It may be near when it seems so far,So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit--It's when things seem worst that you must not quit.


To make a difference in someones life, you don't have to be brilliant, rich, beautiful or perfect. You just have to care


Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do. It’s easy to look at the abilities you lack and start to feel bad that you don’t know enough, or can’t do enough. This alone can be the start of a bad day, because once you start thinking like that it’s hard for anything else to go your way that day. But once you shift the focus to your long list of abilities, to all of the things you do know, and all of the things you can do, you start getting inspired rather than discouraged, and more things start to go your way. You’ll start playing to your strengths instead of wallowing in your weaknesses.takes a long time and sustained effort to learn a subject, to understand the basics, to appreciate its complexity. At some time in this often arduous journey one usually arrives at the point where one begins to understand the immensity of the subject and how ignorant one is about it. Expertise is accompanied with an acceptance that one is now in full view of one’s ignorance. No one is as acutely aware of his own ignorance as the expert. We are limited beings and comprehensive knowledge is denied to us. At best, given the right circumstances and the right capabilities, we get a glimpse of what lies out there. At best, we can learn a bit about some severely circumscribed aspect of reality. The most important lesson we learn is that we are really don’t know it all. We don’t really know much about anything compared to what is potentially knowable.So we learn to appreciate our ignorance of the subject when we attain some degree of proficiency in the subject. This is denied to those who have not attained a certain degree of expertise in any specific topic. To those who have put in the effort of mastering (to a certain degree) a subject, it becomes possible for them to appreciate that they themselves are totally ignorant of the innumerable other subjects. Learning any subject well teaches humility.This I think is one of the more important lessons one learns as one learns any subject deeply: that comprehensive understanding is not possible and therefore we are stripped of the fatal conceit that we know what is good, true and moral. Only the ignorant can maintain and entertain the illusion of knowledge; those who know know that they don’t know.The knowledge of their ignorance is not available to the ignorant. First order ignorance is not knowing something; second order ignorance is not knowing that one one is ignorant, that one does not know.Therefore I think that anyone in any position of power should learn some subject deeply. People in positions of power must study some aspect of reality in some detail so that they develop the appreciation of ignorance. If they don’t, they mistakenly believe that they know whatever there is to be known. Their conceit and their hubris is a side-effect, a natural consequence, of their inability to appreciate that they really don’t know.It really does not matter what the subject is as long as it is some aspect of reality ( and not some pseudo subject like astrology or palmistry.) One can study history, or psychology, or high energy physics, or anthropology — or even economics. At some stage of their intellectual development, the person will realize that their limited understanding is all that they are capable of. And thus come to understand that they are totally and irremediably ignorant of all the other subjects. This realization will prevent their falling into the trap, the fatal conceit, that they can rely on their own understanding. Then they will become capable of seeking the advice of those who know.The

1. Trust Me: 55 Ways to Build Trust and Credibility

By Honorable Buck Rogers [Conservative]
9/19/2019

Trust Me: 55 Ways to Build Trust and Credibility
1. It takes many years to become an overnight success.
2. Good intentions are just the beginning.
3. Your reputation is their first impression.
4. Show people that you care about their needs.
5. A promise should be as binding as a contract.
6. Never sacrifice a long-term relationship for a short-term gain.
7. Don’t expect people to look up to you if you look down on them.
8. Give credit where credit is due.
9. The danger of shooting from the hip is hitting yourself in the foot.
10. Be knowledgeable and remain current in your field.
11. Follow through on every commitment that you make.
12. Take the time to provide the rationale behind your recommendations.
13. Stay focused. Trying to be all things to all people is a guaranteed recipe for mediocrity.
14. Be objective.
15. Opinions held in secret never make a difference.
16. Never cut corners.
17. Stand up for the things that you believe in. (Waffles are for breakfast.)
18. Be a thought leader.
19. At the end of the day, you’re judged by the value that you provide.
20. Be straight with people. Tell it like it is.
21. Don’t be afraid to present bad news. It’s worse to sweep it under the rug. (People appreciate honesty.)
22. Remain calm, cool, and collected during difficult times.
23. Present both sides of an issue. (Let them judge for themselves.)
24. Be a good listener.
25. Disclose potential conflicts of interest.
26. Even a tiny exaggeration can destroy your credibility.
27. Once you make a decision, don’t look back.
28. Always tell the truth or the truth will tell on you.
29. Surround yourself with people who have a high degree of integrity.
30. Your actions “off-stage“ (i.e., at an office party or on Facebook) impact your trust and credibility.
31. Typos and grammatical errors loom larger than life.
32. Remain transparent. (You’ll never be faulted for communicating too much.)
33. Never ask someone to do something that you’re not willing to do yourself.
34. Reliable and consistent behavior on your part allows people to anticipate what you’ll do in the future.
35. Do what’s right, even if nobody is looking.
36. You are judged by the company that you keep.
37. Your actions must match your words.
38. Being an expert in one area doesn’t make you an expert in everything.
39. Admit when you’re wrong.
40. Don’t submit unfinished work as complete.
41. Never confuse quantity with quality.
42. Think before you open your mouth.
43. People who “hard sell” don’t always have the facts on their side.
44. You gain more by making others look good than by singing your own praises.
45. Trying to be excellent in everything leads to mediocrity.
46. “Everybody does it” is a poor excuse for doing it yourself.
47. Words spoken in confidence are words spoken in trust.
48. Learn how to disagree without being disagreeable.
49. Repeating a rumor is as vicious as starting one.
50. People will test you in small ways before trusting you outright.
51. The only thing worse than talking about others is talking about yourself.
52. Great talent means nothing if you’re not dependable.
53. Few people will fault you for being tough, if you’re fair.
54. It’s not only what you bring to the table but how you serve it.
55. REMEMBER, trust and credibility take years to develop but can be lost in seconds.

2. International Unity

By Honorable Buck Rogers [Conservative]
10/5/2019

I would like to break to the walls of ignorance between differents peoples and cultures

I am a firm believer in the people

Let each one of us build bridges rather than barriers, open minds rather than walls.

We can hold each others in same feeling

with our hands and lives,

let’s all push our hearts together...

to make a better place this world

let’s build bridges to each other

our lives are a bridge to us to give the oportunity to know each other

I want to build a better bridge in my heart

Together in a spirit of acceptance, helpfulness, co-operation and peace

from every wrong we’ve done to each other, if I forgive will you forgive?

Let's not let our anger.. do bad to our souls

I wonder

If i am different......you will accept me?

If i have another thought...... you're going to respect my opinion?

If we believe in the same God ,.

but we call him with a different name .

you will pray with me for peace and humanity?

With empathy we should tear down barriers by building lasting relationships with every person ,nation, or people.

Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason

for the hope that you have with your fundamental human right to share our faith;

our lifes and our cultures .

But do this with gentleness and respect.” This must be our guide.

Remember always

Only love can build us a bridge of light to each other..

3. To Create Team Harmony

By Honorable Buck Rogers [Conservative]
8/8/2019

Are you the leader or just the boss? The leader of a symphony orchestra knows how to play every instrument. He also knows how those instruments blend together to create a symphonic sound. The leader of a choir knows every note that everybody has to sing, and knows how the voices and notes blend together to make harmony. They're actually called "conductors," but you know what I mean.

When you can take both of these leadership elements and put them together, you have symphonic harmony. You have a team that knows their individual talents, knows their individual notes, knows their lyrics, knows how to play and how to sing (and knows the timing of when to do both) – to create team harmony. And IF the leader is prepared, in control, and respected, the results can be spectacular.

If you're the leader of these people and these elements, it is imperative that you know how each player must perform, or you will fail. Same in sales. All sales leaders and bosses want their people to be a team. All salespeople resist it, because they just want to sell – but they often need other team member (accounting, production, shipping, service) to make it happen.

THE TEAM SECRET IS:

Everyone must know his or her own skill and know it perfectly. Until they know themselves, they can't play well or sing well with others.

THE LEADERSHIP SECRET IS:

Leaders must be able to extract the excellence of their people's performance and combine it with the excellence of their own performance. Often salespeople don't live up to their potential and don't do their best, or they make mistakes along the way. This is where leadership can make it happen, or break it down and continue with less than stellar performance.

THE LEADERSHIP REALITY IS:

If you're a real leader, you can't blame the players for poor performance. You have to be the teacher, the conductor, the coach, and the encourager. On the eve of a symphony performance, thousands of people pay to watch the orchestra AND the conductor perform. At the end there is usually thunderous applause, cheers of BRAVO!, flowers given out all over the place, and, at the urging of the conductor, members of the orchestra stand one or two at a time to bow and receive individual applause.

You, as the spectator (the customer), paid for and saw a one--‐hour performance. But the outcome was not determined by their performance that evening. The outcome was determined long ago when they were practicing. If they didn't practice, their performance would not have been acceptable.

Same with you. And the key is the message I'm trying to transfer. Leaders and orchestra members PRACTICED TOGETHER. It's the same in sales. You can't just be the boss or the manager. You also have to be the leader by example, and the coach who knows the game.

4. Fear
By CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]
10/27/2019

Fear is nothing more than a lingering emotion that’s fueled by your imagination. Danger is real. It’s the uncomfortable rush of adrenaline you get when you almost step in front of a bus. Fear is a choice. Happy people know this better than anyone does, so they flip fear on its head. They are addicted to the euphoric feeling they get from conquering their fears.

When all is said and done, you will lament the chances you didn’t take far more than you will your failures. Don’t be afraid to take risks. I often hear people say, “What’s the worst thing that can happen to you? Will it kill you?” Yet, death isn’t the worst thing that can happen to you. The worst thing that can happen to you is allowing yourself to die inside while you’re still alive.

5. Appreciate Everyone
By CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]
10/27/2019

When you believe that there is a purpose for everyone you meet, you will appreciate everyone. Some people will test you, some will use you, some will bring out the best in you. Whether good or bad, everyone will teach you something about yourself.

To replace the old paradigm of war with a new paradigm of waging peace, we must be pioneers who can push the boundaries of human understanding. We must be doctors who can cure the virus of violence. We must be soldiers of peace who can do more than preach to the choir. And we must be artists who will make the world our masterpiece.
* * *


6. Love
By CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]

Accept Yourself
January 2020

Love is not your problem. Your problem is that you have not been able to accept yourself, to stand on your own feet, to be respectful to yourself, to do something so that you can feel that you have some worth.
Your worth should be within you, not donated by somebody else. A borrowed worth is dangerous; the person can take it back. And this goes on happening in so-called love affairs. Only an independent person can love and can be loved. And love will not create any problem for him/her;)

Write Yourself A Love Letter In 10 Steps!
11/2/2019

The right words can express profound feelings of compassion, kindness, and love – especially when we direct them at ourselves. Take a moment on your journey to write a note reminding yourself just how much care and love you, too, are worth.

1. The letter does not have to be long – a few sentences will do.

2. Write as if you were addressing an old friend – speak in the third-person.

3. Begin with a strong statement of support – i.e. “You make me feel confident.”

4. Avoid phrases that feel forced – keep your tone authentic and grounded.

5. Describe admirable personal qualities – i.e. “You go out of your way to help.”

6. Describe character traits unique to you – i.e. “Your laughter brings happiness.”

7. List sincere hopes for the future – i.e. “I wish you courage in all adventures.”

8. Speak briefly about the place and time you are living in, marking this step in life.

9. Close with a note of gratitude – “I am sincerely thankful for everything you are.”

10. Sign, seal, and place it away somewhere. Read it again in 1, 5, 10, or 25 years.

Love is a potent force of good in this world. Love connects us to one another, brings out our best qualities, and, hopefully, allows us to find a bit of the divine within another soul. Love transcends the different spiritual traditions that separate us – and thus, many great teachers from diverse backgrounds have shared wonderful insights on the nature of love in our lives.

Remember that the best relationship is one in which your love for each other exceeds your need for each other. Keep love close to the heart. When love is the driving force behind our actions, the possibilities for our future are limitless.

Drop hesitations. People come to me and they say they want to love, they hesitate; they want to meditate, but they hesitate; they would like to dance, but they hesitate. If this hesitation is there and you go on feeding it, you will miss your whole life. It is time: drop it! And nothing else is to be done: just become aware that this is just the way you have been brought up, that's all.
* * *

At the end of life, what really matters is not what we bought, but what we built; not what we got, but what we shared; not our competence, but our character; and not our success, but our significance. Live a life that matters. Live a life of love
* * *

We are born in one day
We can die in one day
We can change in one day
We can fall in love in one day
Anything can happen in just one day..if we let it
* * *


7. Just Me

I am me just me, no matter my past endeavors. What you see is what you get. Take me as I am because the miles I've walked in life have made me who you know...
* * *


8. Opportunities

Opportunities in life are like the sunrise, If you miss it, You won't be able to see it again, So, grab the right opportunity coming your way
* * *

Remember - In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity! difficulties present opportunities. The difficulty of an unsolved math or science problem, for instance, provides the opportunity to solve the problem.

Another example could be from competetive running. The difficulty of facing another fast runner provides the opportunity to break records. It is very difficult to set a record unless you are challenged by someone else. The challenge of difficulty makes you run faster or think better.

Therefore, in the middle of difficulity lies opportunity.

9. Dreams

If you can dream it you can build it. If you can build it, you can live it.
* * *

Dreams are like stars
Enlighten our hearts
The road may be rough
We fall and we rise
The road may be long
But never get stuck
And never give up
Life is like a mountain
Just keep climbing
And think about one thing
The view from the top
Woman's dreams are big
She has different roles to play
A respectable lady, a lovely wife
A great mom, a successful woman
Being beautiful isn't enough
Be smart, be strong, be classy
Don't hide your feelings
Your vulnerability is your strength
Always value yourself
And do what is right
Pleasure is only temporary
Regrets last forever
You are more than a pretty face
Your values are what make you
Unforgettable...
Never lower your standards for anyone
Not even for love
Self-esteem is everything
A woman is like a diamond
Be rare, be precious...
The right path is not always the easiest
Just think of the view from the top
Men and women complete each other
Men are not your rivals
Together we can change the world
Together we can make the difference
* * *

There are dreams worth following and dreams worth chasing.. and then there are dreams worth growing wings and flying for .
There are galaxies within you .. you wear diamonds on the inside .. stardust swirls and dances in your soul .. with a powerful, beautiful light whispering to you ..
embrace it .. listen to it .. trust it
Live your passion .. follow your dreams
* * *

Take Your Time... Creativity Is In the Eye of the Beholder! Dreams are for dreamers, a popular song from the past explains. Who says what your dream turns out to be? Creativity is in the eye of the beholder; just like what is beautiful to one person has no effect on the next. Dreams come to reality when the dreamer paints the picture for others to see. That picture can be on canvas; paper; or a blueprint to follow. The results of the dream must be transformed for others to understand and commit to funding or partnering with the dreamer. A dream is personal and develops out of the mind of an individual. Take your time; and keep dreaming until you're done!

10. Prayer

I am nothing special, of this I am sure.
I am a common man with common thoughts and I've led a common life.
There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten, but I've hopefully given back to society with all my heart and soul, and brought a bit of joy into people's lives..no one knows what goes on behind closed doors or what other people are going through in personal battles...but if for a moment there can by a ray of sunshine to lift the mood I've done my job..it is not only writing here but also giving back thanks to you the readers that get just as much pleasure as I do writing..You are all special..
God bless you

Positivity will attract positive people into your life. Having a few genuine, positive friends is better than having lots of negative ones.

2019-11-15 11:32

True friendship multiplies the good in life and divides its evils. Strive to have friends, for life without friends is like life on a desert island... to find one real friend in a lifetime is good fortune; to keep him is a blessing.

The prettiest smiles hide the deepest secrets..the prettiest eyes have cried the most tears..and the kindest hearts have felt the most pain

The secret of happiness is to count your blessings while others are adding up their troubles.

2019-11-15 13:01

Life has no smooth road for any of us. As we go down it, we need to remember that happiness is a talent we develop, not an object we seek. It’s the ability to bounce back from life’s inevitable setbacks. Some people are crushed by misfortune. Others grow because of it. Everything worthwhile is at first difficult.
* * *

2020-02-03 14:04

Happiness is a choice. Life isn't about pleasing everybody.
* * *

2020-02-09 15:27

The past has no power over the present moment
Seek positive revenge by living well. Are you contemplating revenge? You know that’s negative thinking getting the best of you. However, there is a way to seek revenge positively....How? Forget about them. Remember you. Working on a better you is more fulfilling than hanging on to contempt of others. Let it all go and hold on to your growth and kindness instead. If you train yourself to consistently be more loving in thoughts and actions, your positive energy will attract more positive results into your current reality

Be unlike the person or situation that hurt you. Let go and grow past your pain. Carry on living well in a way that creates peace in your heart. The energy you would spend trying to get real revenge can be better spent creating an amazing future for yourself. The bottom line is that the best revenge is happiness, because nothing drives your adversaries more insane than seeing a fresh smile on your face

15. Women and men Are not equal
12/1/2019

Women and men Are not equal
But no one is superior No one is inferior They complete Each other
Like a puzzle Together, they are unstoppable
Women are sensitive And so emotional
The reason why They are special
Men are strong and realistic
The reason why They are awesome
Don't forget, your woman is unique
Show her your love and respect
Treat her like a queen
Spoil her with loyalty
Gifts and flowers Men too, deserve to be spoiled
Make your man feel like a king
Make him your priority And make every moment count
A life without women is unexciting
A world without men is boring
Both are indispensable
Both are amazing

16. Peace
12/3/2019

Peace in its broad sense does not mean the end of conflict and adversity only, but may require the establishment of a package of vocabulary, values, attitudes and customs based on full respect for the principles of sovereignty, fundamental freedoms and human rights, dialogue and cooperation among peoples and cultures, "Live and let others live." Meant that peace should be given to the people so that it could be acquired as a public case. Since peace is a blessing for the people, violence and wars curse, and what the peace is love and co-existence, wars are hostility and discrimination.
* * *


17. Truth
12/3/2019

Many people, especially ignorant people, want to punish you for speaking the truth, for being correct, for being you. Never apologize for being correct, or for being years ahead of your time. If you’re right and you know it, speak your mind. Speak your mind. Even if you are a minority of one, the truth is still the truth.
* * *


18. Creating Your Own Reality
12/3/2019

Creating your own reality is something that you are doing right now, whether you are aware of it or not. The reality that you are currently experiencing is largely created by both the thoughts and beliefs that you hold, and the choices and decisions that you have made. The decisions that you make in the present are what will shape your reality in the future
Accepting this may be a bit difficult to do if you are less than thrilled with the current circumstances of your life. Many people find it easier to blame other people, life, fate, or anything else they can think of, rather than facing the fact that they are creating their own reality. However, this is a trap, because it is extremely dis empowering else is responsible for creating your current unhappy circumstances, then you are basically stuck with these circumstances until that person or force decides to change things for you. However, if you are willing to recognize that, in each moment you are creating your own reality - imperfect as it may be right now, you can begin accepting your own power to create a future reality that is more closely aligned with your ideals
If someone/something else is responsible for creating your current unhappy circumstances, then you are basically stuck with these circumstances until that person or force decides to change things for you. However, if you are willing to recognize that, in each moment you are creating your own reality - imperfect as it may be right now, you can begin accepting your own power to create a future reality that is more closely aligned with your ideals.
Whatever you believe with feeling becomes your reality.” In other words, if you truly believe that you can live a happy, powerful and loving life, there is nothing that can stop this becoming your experience of reality. If you do not have a heartfelt belief that you are able to live the life you desire, chances are very high that you are not experiencing that ideal reality
If you want to change your reality, change your beliefs. This can be done through the use of affirmations, life coaching, and various other tools and techniques. The main thing is to realize that you are creating your reality with the beliefs you hold. If you are not prepared to do what it takes to change those beliefs, your experience of reality is also unlikely to change
Everything you can imagine is real. “ If we heed these words, we can begin to see how we create our own happiness, or misery, with the imaginings that we allow to fill our minds. Are you allowing your reality to be shaped by imagined wonders, or imagined misfortunes?
Your goals, minus your doubts, equal your reality.

19. THERE IS ALWAYS A GOOD SIDE!
12/3/2019

THERE IS ALWAYS A GOOD SIDE!
Be an optimist and try to see the opportunity in every misfortune, not a pessimist that sees misfortune in every opportunity. The optimist sees the doughnut, the pessimist sees the hole.
You can develop success from every failure. Discouragement and failure are two stepping stones to success. No other elements can do so much for you if you're willing to study them and make them work for you.View every problem as an opportunity. When it is dark enough, you can see the stars.
* * *


20. Trust Yourself
12/3/2019

There is no secret formula to success
Just trust yourself
Even if no one else does
And remember...
Originality is rare
Dare to be different
Embrace your values
And never lower
Your standards for anyone
Be ambitious
Follow your dreams
But take your brain with you
Never forget...
Right is right and wrong is wrong
Be a light in the darkness
Give hope to the hopeless
Be an epitome of kindness
That's what I call true success
It's not about money or power
It's all about making a difference
Touching hearts and changing lives

21. Unique Habits of Ridiculously Likeable people
12/8/2019

Unique Habits of Ridiculously Likeable people

Too many people succumb to the mistaken belief that being likeable comes from natural, unteachable traits that belong only to a lucky few—the good looking, the fiercely social, and the incredibly talented. It’s easy to fall prey to this misconception.

When I speak to smaller audiences, I often ask them to describe the most likeable people they have ever worked with. People inevitably ignore innate characteristics (intelligence, extraversion, attractiveness, and so on) and instead focus on qualities that are completely under people's control, such as approachability, humility, and positivity.

These qualities, and others like them, describe people who are skilled in emotional intelligence (EQ). TalentSmart research data from more than a million people shows that people who possess these skills aren’t just highly likeable, they outperform those who don’t by a large margin. Ninety percent of top performers have high EQs, people with high EQs make $29,000 more annually than people with low EQs, and a single-point increase in your EQ adds $1,300 to your salary. I could go on and on.

Being likeable is under your control, and it’s a matter of emotional intelligence. Unlike innate, fixed characteristics, such as your intelligence (IQ), EQ is a flexible skill that you can improve with effort.

To help you improve your EQ, I did some digging to uncover the key behaviors that emotionally intelligent people engage in that make them so likeable.

They are genuine. Being genuine and honest is essential to being likeable. No one likes a fake. People gravitate toward those who are genuine because they know they can trust them. It is difficult to like someone when you don’t know who they really are and how they really feel.

Likeable people know who they are. They are confident enough to be comfortable in their own skin. By concentrating on what drives you and makes you happy as an individual, you become a much more interesting person than if you attempt to win people over by making choices that you think will make them like you.

They ask thoughtful questions. The biggest mistake people make when it comes to listening is they’re so focused on what they’re going to say next or how what the other person is saying is going to affect them that they fail to hear what’s being said. The words come through loud and clear, but the meaning is lost. A simple way to avoid this is to ask a lot of questions. People like to know you’re listening, and something as simple as a clarification question shows that not only are you listening, you also care about what they’re saying. You’ll be surprised how much respect and appreciation you gain just by asking questions.

They don't pass judgment. If you want to be likeable you must be open-minded. Being open-minded makes you approachable and interesting to others. No one wants to have a conversation with someone who has already formed an opinion and is not willing to listen.

Having an open mind is crucial in the workplace where approachability means access to new ideas and help. To eliminate preconceived notions and judgment, you need to see the world through other people’s eyes. This doesn’t require you believe what they believe or condone their behavior, it simply means you quit passing judgment long enough to truly understand what makes them tick. Only then can you let them be who they are.

They don't seek attention. People are averse to those who are desperate for attention. You don’t need to develop a big, extroverted personality to be likeable. Simply being friendly and considerate is all you need to win people over. When you speak in a friendly, confident, and concise manner, you will notice that people are much more attentive and persuadable than if you try to show them you’re important. People catch on to your attitude quickly and are more attracted to the right attitude than what—or how many people—you know.

When you’re being given attention, such as when you’re being recognized for an accomplishment, shift the focus to all the people who worked hard to help you get there. This may sound cliché, but if it’s genuine, the fact that you pay attention to others and appreciate their help will show that you’re appreciative and humble—two adjectives that are closely tied to likeability.

They are consistent. Few things make you more unlikeable than when you’re all over the place. When people approach you, they like to know whom they’re dealing with and what sort of response they can expect. To be consistent you must be reliable, and you must ensure that even when your mood goes up and down it doesn’t affect how you treat other people.

They use positive body language. Becoming cognizant of your gestures, expressions, and tone of voice (and making certain they’re positive) will draw people to you like ants to a picnic. Using an enthusiastic tone, uncrossing your arms, maintaining eye contact, and leaning towards the person who’s speaking are all forms of positive body language that high-EQ people use to draw others in. Positive body language can make all the difference in a conversation.

It’s true that how you say something can be more important than what you say.

They leave a strong first impression. Research shows most people decide whether or not they like you within the first seven seconds of meeting you. They then spend the rest of the conversation internally justifying their initial reaction. This may sound terrifying, but by knowing this you can take advantage of it to make huge gains in your likeability. First impressions are tied intimately to positive body language. Strong posture, a firm handshake, smiling, and opening your shoulders to the person you are talking to will help ensure that your first impression is a good one.

They greet people by name. Your name is an essential part of your identity, and it feels terrific when people use it. Likeable people make certain they use others’ names every time they see them. You shouldn’t use someone’s name only when you greet him. Research shows that people feel validated when the person they’re speaking with refers to them by name during a conversation.

If you’re great with faces but have trouble with names, have some fun with it and make remembering people’s names a brain exercise. When you meet someone, don’t be afraid to ask her name a second time if you forget it right after you hear it. You’ll need to keep her name handy if you’re going to remember it the next time you see her.

They smile. People naturally (and unconsciously) mirror the body language of the person they’re talking to. If you want people to like you, smile at them during a conversation and they will unconsciously return the favor and feel good as a result.

They know who to touch (and they touch them). When you touch someone during a conversation, you release oxytocin in their brain, a neurotransmitter that makes their brain associate you with trust and a slew of other positive feelings. A simple touch on the shoulder, a hug, or a friendly handshake is all it takes to release oxytocin. Of course, you have to touch the right person in the right way to release oxytocin, as unwanted or inappropriate touching has the opposite effect. Just remember, relationships are built not just from words, but also from general feelings about each other. Touching someone appropriately is a great way to show you care.

They balance passion and fun. People gravitate toward those who are passionate. That said, it’s easy for passionate people to come across as too serious or uninterested because they tend to get absorbed in their work. Likeable people balance their passion with the ability to have fun. At work they are serious, yet friendly. They still get things done because they are socially effective in short amounts of time and they capitalize on valuable social moments. They minimize small talk and gossip and instead focus on having meaningful interactions with their coworkers. They remember what you said to them yesterday or last week, which shows that you’re just as important to them as their work.

Bringing It All Together

Likeable people are invaluable and unique. They network with ease, promote harmony in the workplace, bring out the best in everyone around them, and generally seem to have the most fun. Add these skills to your repertoire and watch your likeability soar!

22. Stand Beside Me Help me help the world. Our people of this world need our love and compassion right now. Ignoring them and the problems that exist will not change anything. Do not walk in front of me because I may not follow you, Do not follow me because I may not know where to lead us to, But stand beside me as my brothers and sisters against calamity so we might fight together for a common good for our peoples of earth

23. Your Plan Nobody ever wrote down a plan to be broke, fat, lazy, or stupid. Those things are what happen when you don’t have a plan.

25. Be Strong Seriously, be strong and know when enough is enough. Take your stand, speak up and refuse to let others hurt you. Throughout your lifetime some people will discredit you, disrespect you and treat you poorly for no apparent reason at all. Don’t consume yourself with trying to change them or win their approval. And don’t make any space in your heart to hate them. You don’t have control over what others think about you, but you do have control over how you decide to internalize their opinions. Leave them to their own judgments. Let people love you for who you are, and not for who they want you to be.
* * *


26. Smile

DONT GET MAD..DONT GET EVEN..WALK AWAY AND SMILE..YOU ARE WORTH 10 OF THEM

Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened.

27. Bully If you turn and face the other way when someone is being bullied, you might as well be the bully too.

28. Generosity Generosity does not always come from people who have plenty. Sometimes the ones with nothing give much more.

29. You are Strong You are strong, you are beautiful, you are smart, you are able. Never let anyone tell you what you are not.

30. Helping Others By CEO Buck Rogers 1/13/2020 It doesn’t matter who you are how much money you have or what your title may be. Helping others humbles you, makes you understand the reason for your very existence, why you were saved from events that could have tragically ended your life. The moment you help someone in need there will be a spark of an energy in your heart and mind that makes you feel as if you are walking on the clouds. YOU must EXPERIENCE it to know the feeling and when you do I hope you treasure it and keep on doing it because here is no greater joy in life than helping another human being in need.
* * *


31. Impossible

If they say it's impossible, remember...

They're saying it's impossible FOR THEM, not for YOU.
* * *

Impossible, two letters too long.
* * *


32. Joy

The ability to have fun does not have to relate to a time, place, action, or thing. It is merely your ability to find joy in the simplest things.
I believe so many people are angry now days about their personal situation. We all need to look at what we have and be thankfull for it. That is where happiness begins because you realize your life is not as bad as someone else who does not have what you do.
* * *

Talking about our problems is our greatest addiction. Break the habit.
Talk about your joys.
* * *


33. Time

Time is more valuable than money, you can get more money, but you can't get more time
* * *


34. Nothing Lasts Forever

Nothing lasts forever I'm a big believer That life has its reasons Just like seasons Life changes Face challenges Always remember Age is just a number Character is power Mind is like a flower Nourish it daily To flourish fastly Fall in love with your life And deal with strife
* * *


35. Good and Bad

Life is a Mixture of both Good and Bad, it depends on how we take it and how we give it back... There's "hell" in hello, "good" in goodbye, "lie" in believe, "over" in lover, "end" in friend, "ex" in "next", & "if" in life... Life is Beautiful..
* * *


36. Good Relations

Sacrifice Is Greater Than Love,
Character Is Greater Than Beauty,
Humanity Is Greater Than Wealth…!
But
Nothing Is Greater Than Good Relations,
And Good Relations Don’t Necessarily Mean Finding Similarities…
Its Just About Respecting Differences...
* * *


37. Investigators Know

As ALL investigators know, "We are only as strong as our weakest link." Continuity is achieved through movement, not by keeping still, or quiet. True endurance is not based on rigidity, endurance implies movement, not immobilization. Stay active and know your weak spots. Endurance is fostered by inner constancy and external flexibility. Long-distance runners must adapt readily to changing conditions, with an inner determination and strength of purpose! ADAPT and ENDURE!
* * *


38. Risks

Take risks in your life.. if you win you can lead, if you lose you can guide
* * *

The biggest risk is not taking any risk. Life is a series of calculated risks – nothing more. Don’t wait to get it “perfect”, just start now.
* * *


39. Warrior

We must not be defined by what we do, but we must be what and who we are~~~then only happen to do what we do. The warrior only fights when there is no other choice, not for pride or to prove a point. Being a warrior is something that comes from inside you, something that originates in your spirit. It has very little to do with what you do for a living, whether or not one has great fighting skills, or whether or not they know their weapons. Of course developing good fighting skills and knowing how to use weapons are a major plus but that is not what makes a true warrior.

Do not be desirous of having things done quickly. Do not look at small advantages. Desire to have things done quickly prevents their being done thoroughly. Looking at small advantages prevents great affairs from being accomplished.
* * *


41. Hope

The very Least you can do in your life is figure out What you Hope for; And the Most you can do is Live Inside that Hope; Not admire it from a distance, But Live Right in it, Under Its Roof.
* * *

Hope is the only thing stronger than fear.
* * *

To every broken heart
Where there's life there's hope
To every beaten soul
Where there's faith There's peace
Life is a mixture of sunshine and rain Laughter and tears Joy and pain
Emotions are always there.
Life is like a chess game To win you have to make a move Every move
must have a purpose Dare to take risks despite your fear Dare to fail,
fail to learn And learn to win You know, my dear My life isn't a
pearl That always shines I don't expect it to be easy I refuse to be
a victim.
I don't wait for life to bring me flowers everyday .
I create my own garden And decorate my life
I don't let my mind play tricks on me
Some days are storms Some days are diamonds
Are there diamonds without storms? Absolutely not! God is my strength
Hope is my anchor Courage is my bodyguard My tears are my prayers My
philosophy in life
After night comes day After death comes life
Autumn is the best proof
Never let despair get to your heart
Always let hope hold your hand Through every stage of life
Trust me dear, it's not the end Everything will be fine Please smile
And don't lose your fire

42. Positivity

Really it's not about being mad in life, but it is about creating a positive and successful lifestyle. Understanding the 7 protocols which are; failure is the start of something great, we need to go after what we want, always do as much as we can, help others, ask questions, let go of the past, initiate what we want to do in life and stop comparing ourselves to others....we are all individuals.

Warmest wishes for a beautiful new day ahead! Always remember that every new day is another chance to change your life! Go confidently in the direction of your dreams and make things happen!!! ;)

44. Keep Going Forward

Today remember to keep walking forward. Today if anything is trying to hold you back, give no attention to it. Get your hopes up, get your faith up, look up, and get ready to rise up. You will be met with many obstacles in life, but always know you are capable of great things.
Keep going on your path.Embrace who you are and your divine purpose.
Identify the barriers in your life, and develop discipline, courage and the strength to permanently move beyond them. Don’t spend your life wondering «what if» and worrying over something you have no control.
What’s done is done. Even small positive shifts in thinking, create huge results if you are consistent in your efforts.When the vision is clear, the results will appear. Keep your mindset positive as you work your plan, flourish, and always remember why you started. Looking backwards will cause you to miss out on new blessings ahead. Move on.
It’s up to you to keep on walking. Don’t stop believing,
Don’t be afraid of change,
Don’t underestimate yourself,
Don’t make excuses,
Don’t cheat yourself
Don’t ever ever STOP!

45. Friends are Precious

Friends are Precious~ Without friends no one would choose to live, though he had all other goods. When you’re finished contemplating the expanse of the universe, and how you fit within the context of providence, it then becomes necessary for you to remember that without family and friends, neither the wealth of a king, nor the wisdom of a thousand men would satisfy. Let these words serve as a reminder to appreciate the real riches of life..Rich men need friends most of all because being rich has no value unless have people to share it with. Not only that, but friendship can reduce risk. Should you fall on bad times you can seek refuge with your friends. That leads to poor men who can benefit from their friends in time of poverty and misfortune. Young men can benefit from friendships as sources of learning or mentorship (to “keep them from error”). Old people benefit from friends when their health fails. More importantly than all these fact, however, is that friendship stimulates you to noble actions. Joining with friends you are more able to think and act.

There is something special in the feeling of friendship that makes you want to act. You get a sense of joy from helping your friends even when it’s not a typically joyful task. Friendships improve our lives because they make us better people. In striving to serve our friends we improve ourselves.

49. Humanity

What makes people say you inspire them? It's never the outside package. Time is so short and there is little room for insincere connections in your day. Family, blood and mission, are paramount. In the richest kingdoms, the kings still eat and sleep. Humanity is not showing its better side lately. I've seen things I can't unsee. I've had conversations I can't forget. Give someone all the riches in the world and when they lose someone they love they hold no value. Rethink your humanity. Your essence. Your soul. Help someone tomorrow you would not normally have crossed paths with. Put down the latte and the smartphone and engage your humanity.
* * *


50. Life at Age 90

Imagine yourself 90 years old. On a porch in a rocking chair. Looking back on your life. You got that image? Good! Now let me tell you, studies show that the biggest regret from elderly people on their death bed is not what they did.... It’s what they didn’t do. The risks they never took. How sad would it be to get to the end of your life and realize you never truly lived. This is YOUR life. Nobody else’s. No matter how much society, your parents, your friends want you to live, the way they want you to live. YOU run the show. When you shut your eyes and go to sleep at night the entire world ceases to exist. And when you wake up it’s born again. This is your life! You’re in control. You gotta do what feels right in your heart.

**Don’t let anyone stop you from living your life! If your not happy, move on! Don’t let life pass you by! Life’s to short!**

51. Reading Your Eyes

TRUE RELATION IS Never hide your secrets from a person who can read your Eyes... Because the one who reads your Eyes is always expert in reading your Heart.
* * *


52. We Are All Human

No color, no religion, no nationality should come between us,..WE ARE ALL HUMAN
* * *


53. Change

And that is how change happens. One gesture. One person. One moment at a time.
* * *

We all know change is constant. It’s not a matter of wondering if things will change as much as when. Nothing in life stands still. If you hate change you might describe it as an assault. If you love it, you might see it as unexpected opportunity. Both viewpoints share one common truth: change, in and of itself, is not sufficient to produce growth.

Here are, according to me, the required ingredients to turn turmoil into opportunity

Be CURIOUS. You don’t have to be in love with what’s happening to come up with great questions. If emotions are getting in the way you might try to view the situation as a journalist. What would he or she need to know in order to formulate an interesting and fact-filled story?

Be HONEST. Being open and curious during times of change doesn’t mean you can’t say you hate what’s happening. When things suck, it’s ok to say so. The important thing is to understand what you are feeling and why.
* * *

What we have done for ourselves alone dies with us; what we have done for others and the world remains and is immortal.

Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier You must be the change you wish to see in the world
* * *


54. Your Story

Every scar has a story. Don't be afraid to tell it.
* * *


55. Winners

Winners are not people who never fail
Winners are people who always try
To be better every day

Failure is not the end
It's a state of mind
Don't let it make you blind
Life is a continuous battle
You are a king without a castle
Fight and don't be fragile

Winners are not born
They are stubborn
To learn from the storm

Win or lose
Only you can choose
Courage or excuse
Be strong, be you
Don't wait for someone to come out of the blue Never forget, the real
battle is within you
Smile on through the rain
Smile on through the pain
Try again and again
Beat the devil, conquer fear
Never quit, always cheer
Life is a big deal
* * *


56. Persistence

Dripping water hollows out stone, not through force but through persistence.

57. I Alone

I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples

58. Always Say How You Feel

ALWAYS TELL SOMEONE HOW YOU FEEL BECAUSE OPPORTUNITIES ARE LOST IN THE BLINK OF AN EYE BUT REGRETS CAN LAST A LIFETIME, NEVER REGRET ANYTHING IN YOUR LIFE IT CANNOT BE CHANGED,UNDONE OR FORGOTTEN SO TAKE IT AS A LESSON LEARNED AND MOVE ON. DON'T EVEN REGRET KNOWING SOMEONE IN YOUR LIFE,GOOD PEOPLE WILL GIVE YOU HAPPINESS, BAD PEOPLE WILL GIVE YOU EXPERIENCE,WHILE THE WORST PEOPLE PEOPLE WILL GIVE YOU A LESSON AND THE BEST PEOPLE,WILL ALWAYS GIVE YOU A LESSON AND THE BEST PEOPLE WILL ALWAYS GIVE YOU MEMORIES.

YOU HAVE TO TAKE THE GOOD WITH THE BAD,SMILE WITH THE SAD,LOVE WHAT YOU'VE GOT REMEMBER WHAT YOU HAD ,ALWAYS FORGIVE BUT REMEMBER, IF YOU REMEMBER A REGRET IS NOT WHEN YOU COULD NOT FINISH WHAT YOU STARTED, BUT A REGRET IS WHEN YOU DO NOT START WHAT YOU COULD HAVE FINISHED. WHEN YOUR ACTIONS ARE BASED ON GOOD INTENTIONS OUR MINDS HAVE NO REGRETS.

REMIND YOURSELF THAT IT'S OK NOT TO BE PERFECT, A PESSIMIST SEES THE PROBLEMS IN EVERY OPPORTUNITY, AN OPTIMIST SEE THE OPPORTUNITY IN EVERY PROBLEM. REMEMBER THAT YESTERDAY IS THE PAST, TOMORROW'S THE FUTURE BUT TODAY IS A GIFT THAT'S WHY WE CALL IT THE PRESENT.

THE WORST REGRET WE HAVE IN LIFE ,IS NOT FOR THE WRONG WE DID, BUT FOR THE THOUSANDS OF RIGHT THINGS, WE DID ,FOR THE WRONG PEOPLE.! LIFE IS TO SHORT TO WAKE UP WITH REGRETS. BE KIND TO THE PEOPLE WHO TREAT YOU RIGHT AND FORGET THE ONES WHO DON'T. BELIEVE THAT EVERYTHING HAPPENS FOR A REASON. IF YOU GET A CHANCE TAKE IT IF IT CHANGES YOUR LIFE LET IT. NOBODY SAID LIFE WOULD BE EASY THEY JUST PROMISED IT WOULD BE WORTH IT. IN THE END WE ONLY REGRET THE CHANCES WE DIDN'T TAKE.

I WISH FOR YOU COMFORT ON DIFFICULT DAYS. SMILES WHEN SADNESS INTRUDES. LAUGHTER TO FEEL YOUR LIPS,AND SUNSETS TO WARM YOUR HEARTS. FRIENDSHIPS TO BRIGHTEN YOUR DAYS, CONFIDENCE FOR WHEN YOU DOUBT YOURSELF, COURAGE TO KNOW YOURSELF. LET YOUR PAST MAKE YOU BETTER NOT BITTER. NEVER ALLOW YOURSELF TO BE DEFINED BY SOMEONE'S OPINION OF YOU!, THE ONE'S WHO SAY YOU WON'T ARE PROBABLY THE ONE'S WHO ARE SCARED THAT YOU WILL!!!!!!!!!!

.

EVERY GREAT DREAM BEGINS WITH A GREAT DREAMER, ALWAYS REMEMBER YOU HAVE IT IN YOU, THE STRENGTH AND THE WILL TO REACH FOR THE STARS AND CHANGE THE WORLD.

No Reasons.

63. Pioneer of the Future

* * *


64. Enthusiasm

“Life’s blows cannot break a person whose spirit is warmed by the fire of enthusiasm.

Believe in yourself....When I first started exploring new opportunities to find the right direction in my life, I found myself overwhelmed by the competition. There were so many others just like me trying and doing what I was doing. And turning to my friends didn’t offer any respite, because instead of encouraging me to try new avenues, some of them brought me back to where I began. “Why don’t you be more pragmatic?

Feeding me with seeds of self-doubt, it took me some time to recover my momentum. And it was in the positive voices of so many others in blogs such as this, videos, and social media that I found encouragement to keep at it. It felt like they were talking about me. found the light inside of me to bring forward the resiliency that lay dormant. No longer suppressed by someone else’s ideas of the way things “ought to be,” I continued on my newly discovered path. The more I focused on my own voice and the voices of encouraging friends, the more I grew to believe in myself.

Although for some, finding the right direction might require the journey of a lifetime, I do believe that there is one direction that we are all meant to go: forward.

By taking small steps each and every day, putting aside over-thinking, and realizing that you have everything you need deep within, you can find the right direction in your life. And while it may not be the direction you expected, it will work out just fine.
* * *


65. Journey

Your journey is not the same as mine, and my journey, is not yours. But if you meet me on a certain path, may we encourage each other!
* * *


66. Meant for You

That which is meant for you will be for you. That which is not is as an ocean in the desert that evaporates into the Heavens and becomes the mist of the mountains high.
* * *


67. Love

The difference between like, love and in love, is the same as the difference between for now, for a while and forever.
* * *


68. Be Giving

Don’t be so stingy. No one is so poor that he/she cannot give anything. We can give our time, a smile, words of encouragement, experience, advise etc.

Some people use the phrase, "you can't give what you don't have" as an excuse to justify their not giving. But our problem has never been that we don't have what to give. Our problem is that we don't have love.

Love always finds a way. Love seeks to do what is right.

So my question to you is: even if you don't have, are you seeking?

Are you seeking other ways you can be a blessing to people?

Don't be so stingy that the only thing you give is excuses. And If you need, seek.

In summary, Be giving! Give advise, give love and give any other material or immaterial things.

This idea of giving can only be more perfected if you allow yourself to remain a team member.

Accept to participate in groups; where people share ideas.

69. Fifteen Ways to Be Happier

Been feeling down in the dumps lately? Sometimes when we’re unhappy, we get overwhelmed by the thought of everything we need to do in order to actually turn our lives around. At times like these, there is a better approach—a simpler one, an easier one.

Sometimes before you can make big changes to your life, you need to make small, simple changes that help lift up your spirits and refresh your perspective. Here are 15 simple things you can do to be happier today!

1. Exercise!
You don’t need to do a lot of exercise to brighten your mood—even just a few minutes a day can make a huge difference. When you work out, your body releases endorphins. Endorphins are natural painkillers and create a sense of euphoria. Even just taking a short walk each day can reduce stress, depression, and anxiety.
As a bonus, if you lose a few unwanted pounds along the way, you can look in the mirror and feel better about your self-image.

2. Get some sleep.
Seriously, how much sleep are you getting? With our hectic 9-5 lives, many of us settle for 5-6 hours or even fewer. After a while, that takes a huge toll on physical and psychological health. Force yourself to get 7-9 hours of solid zzzzz’s! You’ll notice a real boost to your clarity and mood.

3. Stop reading the news for a week.
Do tragic headlines about war, disease, and famine get you down? Do yourself a real favour and stop reading the news for a week. Exposing yourself daily to horrors you can do nothing about does nothing to empower you. Instead, focus on your own life and things you can change.

4. Count your blessings.
Sit down and write a list of things you’re thankful for. If it’s tough, just decide on a set amount. Pick 3, or maybe 5. Then think back to times in your life when you didn’t have those things. No matter what threats you’re facing now, at least you have those precious things you are grateful for.

5. Perform a random act of kindness.
Leave a 30% tip at the restaurant. Hand a homeless person $20. Send money to a stranger online who needs it. Smile and compliment someone who looks down. Not only will you feel great about making someone else happy, but this will remind you that sometimes someone does lend a hand—and maybe someone will be there to help you when you need it too.

6. Acknowledge your personal journey.
When you are having a hard time seeing how you’re going to achieve your next goal, just look back at how far you have come. Even if you’ve struggled, odds are you have persevered and accomplished things you never knew you would.
Don’t compare your accomplishments with other peoples’. Just acknowledge how great they were in comparison to the obstacles you overcame. If you did it before, you can do it again.

7. Take an afternoon to do something “unimportant.”
If you are constantly working on your to-do list, you are constantly under pressure.
Take an afternoon to do something you consider genuinely unimportant by any practical standards. Read that book you’ve been neglecting, watch that movie you haven’t seen in years, take a walk to enjoy the air instead of the exercise, or do something else simple and relaxing you’ve been neglecting.

8. Love and forgive your inner child.
Most of us carry around traumas from our younger years, especially childhood. If an adult in your life spent time blaming you instead of forgiving you, or invalidating you instead of encouraging you, forgive yourself in their stead. It is all right to love yourself—in fact, you have to love yourself to heal.
Take care of your inner child, and give yourself the permission to live out childhood dreams in any way you can. It’s never too late, no matter how much you’ve changed.

9. Allow yourself to fail and succeed.
It’s okay to make mistakes, and it’s okay now and again to not achieve your goals. The world doesn’t revolve around you, and you don’t control everything that happens in your life. Accept and forgive those failures you could not prevent. Likewise, celebrate your victories when they come, even if they seem small to you now.

10. Forgive someone who wronged you.
Forgiving someone does not mean saying they were right and you were wrong, or allowing them to continue being a part of your life if they are toxic. It doesn’t mean forgetting what they did either. What it does mean is that you are allowing yourself to release the burden of your pain and anger so you can move on with your life. It’s liberation for you and closure for them.

11. Remember the voices in your head aren’t all speaking the truth.
Each of us has plenty of voices in our heads telling us what to do each day, and what is true and what is not. Parents, spouses, siblings, friends, colleagues, religious figures, enemies, society at large—they’re all there. Sometimes they mean us well and sometimes they don’t.
Remember that even if you can’t shut them out, it doesn’t mean you have to believe them every time—or do whatever they say. Start honoring the voices that guide you toward happiness, and learn to ignore the ones that don’t.

12. Go outside.
Nature is beautiful! Take a breath of fresh air, and open up those shuttered windows in your mind. Let the dust drift off the rafters. Go outside for a walk or even just to sit and relax and listen to the birds. The tranquillity of nature reminds us there is a world outside our problems.

13. Remember to laugh.
Laughter releases endorphins just like exercise, so it’s a great mood booster. Even when you’re down it can work great—that’s probably why we sometimes laugh as a self-defense mechanism even when we’re scared by something.
Watch a silly comedy, or hang out with a friend who brings out your goofy side. Learn to let go. When we laugh at a problem, we are telling that problem that it is finite, and that it isn’t as huge or terrifying or insurmountable as it feels.

14. Call a friend.
Even if you’re an introvert and you need time alone to recharge, too much isolation is bad for you. Even if you don’t feel like talking to anyone, you could be surprised. That sense of closeness and camaraderie may be just what you need, and you never know what new perspective someone else can bring.

15. Do something you love.
All of us have responsibilities we don’t necessarily enjoy. Maybe you don’t like your job, or you have other obligations you aren’t crazy about. Don’t let any of it stop you from doing what you are truly passionate about. Even if you can’t do it full-time, even if people think you’re strange, even if no one understands—do it anyway in any way that you can.

Always remember that you decide the meaning, purpose and value of your own life, and no one else’s meaning or happiness can ever replace your own. So be true to yourself. You’re worth it.

There are two kinds of people, those that do the work and those that take the credit. Try to be in the first group, there is less competition there....:-)
* * *

You know the days when you just don’t want to work?
This is one of those days.
But I’m writing this, aren’t I?
Why?
To prove that yes, you can overcome writer’s block. And to prove that you can motivate yourself to work no matter what your deceptive brain says— even if it’s Sunday and all you want to do is go out (or watch Netflix).

Honestly though, I don’t always possess the mental fortitude to convince myself to work. Hence, am writing this article to find the solution to this problem.
Just imagine the possibilities. You can work effortlessly without nagging yourself to start. How much stress (and guilt) can we remove from our daily lives, if we did what we’re supposed to do?? If that were the case, we’d all be happy and productive people.
So, without further ado…

How to Get things Done (Even When You Don’t Feel Like It)

1. Getting Started When You Don’t Feel Like Doing Whatever You’re
Supposed to be Doing
Nike has solved this for us ages ago: Just Do It. In times like this, just ignore your feelings and do the work, be it exercising, writing your novel, or waking up early.
People think they need to feel motivated before they act, but the truth is motivation comes from doing. For instance, once you do 1 push-up, you’ll feel motivated to do more.

2. You’re Not Working Because You’re Overwhelmed… And Afraid Of Failing
This is common when you’re doing something new, exciting and big. The tendency to feel overwhelmed is high when so much hinges on your success.
There’s an easy way to snap out of this overwhelming feeling: don’t get hung up on the results!2 You don’t know what’s going to happen anyway. I suggest that it’s better to focus your time and effort on things you can control, those within your circle of influence, instead of things you can’t affect.
For your work, your circle of influence is limited to your hard work and attention to details. The results, whether your boss likes what you do or not, is out of your control so don’t dwell on it.

3. The Task Is Boring, Repetitive, Tedious, Or You Just Don’t Enjoy
Doing It At All
Your brain is wired to avoid pain and seek rewards at all costs, so you can’t convince yourself to do things by thinking, “Next time, I’ll wake up early so I’ll have time to do X.” If you actually had the willpower to do it, you wouldn’t wait ‘til tomorrow in the first place!
In my case, I always put off washing the dishes. If there are no more spoons, I’d use chopsticks. No more plates? I’ll use paper plates.
See, my brain is an expert in convincing me to delay these chores. Your problem task might be different but your brain works the same way in helping you find creative loopholes and lopsided rationalizations.
It’s easier to build a habit if you reward yourself for doing it. So I use a modified if-then plan with a reward to get these pesky tasks done.
Here’s my if-then plan for dishwashing:
If it’s Monday 11PM, I’ll wash the dishes and pans I used to cook the previous night then I’ll reward myself by watching 1 episode of a famous tv series
This method works because the decision has already been made in advance.
So when the time comes to do it, there’s no deliberation or second guessing. It also minimizes the demands on your limited willpower. But if that doesn’t work…

4. Do It With Friends
Remember your study groups back in college? You probably didn’t want to study for that calculus test, but hanging out with your friends made it a tad less miserable. It’s the same reason why gym buddies and diet groups work.
Whatever you’re trying to do, see if there’s a way you can do it with friends. If you’re working on a tough presentation due tomorrow, see if you can find colleagues planning on doing OT as well. So while you might be working on different things, at least you’re not alone in the office and you’ll have someone to commiserate with during coffee breaks.

5. If Step 1-4 Doesn’t Work
Put on a show. Public bets, or the prospect of getting humiliated in front of your friends is a powerful motivator. Just look at Ramit Sethi, who kept his goal and built some serious muscle thanks to a bet he made with his friends.
Make a commitment, come up with a consequence for failure, and then tag your friends on Facebook. Let’s see if you have the guts to slack off after that.

6. Stop Waiting Until You Have “Enough” Information
This is just a delaying tactic! How many times have said, “I know it’s time to start X, but I don’t have enough research yet,” even if you already have tons of information on hand?
Honestly, it’s impossible to collect every single bit of information on any subject. And chances are you have enough to get started—not everything, but enough to start and just correct-course along the way.
If you’re still hesitant to start, remember that Sir Richard Branson didn’t know about aviation when he built Virgin Airlines.

7. Take The First Step
You’re procrastinating for no reason. We all have those days, right?
In this scenario, you can convince yourself to work if you do the first and tiniest step that will move you in the right direction.
If you have to work on a project, just open the document and type one sentence. Then give yourself permission to take a break. Seriously!
Congratulating yourself for starting will encourage you to keep going, and minimize that guilt you feel. Besides, the first step is always the hardest, so making it easy to overcome that hurdle will make the succeeding steps much easier.

8. Bribe Yourself
Money talks, people! A 2009 study by behavioral economist Dr. Gary Charness found that you can double a person’s gym attendance by paying them $100.
Don’t have $100 to spare? Try Pact, an app that pools money from other users, and then pays (or penalizes) based on their progress. Cheating doesn’t work by the way, because the app uses GPS and pictures to verify your activity.
For work related projects, you can use 21Habit, where you pledge $21 for a 21-day commitment challenge. Every successful day earns you $1 back, while every unproductive day forfeits $1 to one of their chosen charities. This app is perfect for random tasks and critical projects you keep putting off, like starting your own blog, reaching out to a potential mentor, or automating your finances.
Lastly, don’t beat yourself up if you really can’t force yourself to work. It won’t help because the guilt you’re inflicting on yourself just adds up to your mental image of being a non-performer.
Just breathe and try these suggestions one by one, until you get the ball rolling. Don’t pay much attention to your progress. The main thing is you are trying

82. Forgiveness

Forgiveness
By Buck Rogers

May all beings have forgiveness in their hearts!
May I have forgiveness in my heart for anything I think I've done wrong.
May I forgive myself for what I think were all my past omissions and commissions. They are long gone. I understand that I was a different person then and this one is forgiving the one that I was. May I feel the forgiveness filling me and enveloping me with a sense of warmth and ease.
May I forgive my parents for anything I have ever blamed them for. May I understand that they, too, are different now. May this forgiveness fill them and surround them, and may I know in my heart that this is my most wonderful way of togetherness.
May I forgive my nearest and dearest people for anything that I think they have done wrong or are doing wrong at this time. May they feel that I accept them. May that forgiveness fill them, realizing that this is my expression of love. May I forgive my friends for anything I have disliked about them. May my forgiveness reach out to them so that they can be filled with it and embraced by it.
May I forgive the people I know, whoever they might be, for whatever it is that I have blamed them for, for what I have judged them for, or for what I have disliked. May my forgiveness fill their hearts, and surround and envelope them with it, and let it be my expression of love for them.
May I forgive fully any special person towards whom I still have resentment, rejection, or dislike. May I remember that everyone is suffering. May this forgiveness come from my heart and reach out to that person completely and totally. May I forgive any one person, or any situation, or any group of people, whom I am condemning, blaming, or disliking. May my forgiveness be my expression of unconditional love.
They may not do what I think are the right things.
May I remember that all human beings are suffering and that my heart needs forgiveness in order to have purity of love. May I look again and see whether there's still anyone or anything anywhere in the world that
I blame or condemn. May I forgive them so that there is no separation in my heart.
May I put my attention back on myself and recognize the goodness in me and the effort I am making. May I feel the warmth and ease that comes from my forgiveness. May all beings have forgiveness in their hearts!

84. You Are Special

You Are Special
By CEO Buck Rogers
2020-02-03 19:35

Who are you? What makes you special? For some people, this can be a great source of anxiety and stress. But being special doesn't just mean being exceptional, or being "better" than others at some task or ability or skill. Being special means being respected. Being loved. If you want to stand out from the crowd and be recognized as a special person, you can learn to start developing your inner self, giving it the respect it deserves. You can learn to stand out and make yourself a memorable, special person, who deserves the admiration of others, and the admiration of yourself.

How to Be Special

1

Find your you. No one can tell you how to be special. Being special involves finding the unique inner core that radiates your "you-ness" and doing the work of building that core up. Whatever you want to call it–your soul, your essence, your chi, your mojo, your groove–you have to embrace yourself, define yourself, and build yourself up. It takes work. What does it mean to be you? Who are you? And how can you be the best version of yourself? These are questions and struggles that take up a whole lifetime. Keep in mind the following thought experiments to get your mind oriented to your inner you-ness:

When do you feel completely at ease? What makes you comfortable?

Describe your ideal day. What would it include?

What do other people praise in your work or your behavior? What do you do well?

Describe a recent disagreement you've had with someone or something. How did you differ?

How would you change yourself if you could? Why?

2

Make a list of your values. Knowing what your values are can help you to be more of an individual and to live in a way that will make you happy. Take some time to think about what your values are and write them out. Then, reorganize the list from most important to least important. Some things you can do to help you generate this list include thinking about when you were:

At your happiest. For example, if you felt happiest when you were surrounded by supportive friends and family, then healthy relationships would be one of your values.

Proud. For example, if you felt proud when you graduate high school, then education might be something you value.

Satisfied and fulfilled. For example, you might feel satisfied or fulfilled after a productive day at work, so hark work might be something you value.

3

Identify special characteristics in others. What does it mean to be special? Look at the people you think are exemplary, notable, or special in some way and identify the key characteristics that make it so for you. You might think people who stick up for themselves stand out in your mind as being special, or people who devote themselves fully to their work, or people who are reserved and stoic in the face of adversity. This will be different for all of us, so focus on figuring out what it is that you respect about your grandfather, your close friend, or a loved one, not what other people say.

Try to stay away from celebrities and stick to looking at people you know in real life. It's easy to identify superficial things, to say that Brad Pitt is special because he's so rich and good-looking, but it's hard to identify or even know the true core of his person. We can only see the public persona, which radiates artificial movie-star prestige, not the real person.

Focus on how other people’s characteristics resonate with your own core values and avoid focusing on superficial things. Being special is more about knowing who you are at your core, not from what you think other people are like.

Authority doesn't make someone more special. If someone has power over you, is more successful than you, or is well-known and respected, that doesn't mean that you need to emulate them.

4

Take off your masks. We all wear them. When you go to work, you might have a professional mask, and when you meet up with a date after work you might switch into your dating mask. When you're with your friends, you might wear one mask, and when you're with your family, you might wear another. Once you go about the work of identifying the things that make you truly you, these masks become less useful. If you want to be special, let us see what's behind the mask.

To figure out you relationship to your masks, try to think of a time that you felt you were being fake, or inauthentic. What were the circumstances? How did it make you feel?

Check out your Facebook and Twitter feeds for a good example of digital masks in progress. People want to project images of themselves for others to digest, crafting that image in a particular way. It's inauthentic, in most cases. You're not getting the "real" version of someone.

5

Keep your ego in check. A desire to be special is often a desire to be validated by others. We want to be respected, to be looked upon as successful, happy people who should be envied. But being special doesn't mean being exceptional at everything. It doesn't mean being the best tennis player, or the author with the most publications, or the richest lawyer at the law firm. It means being true to the authentic you-ness and staying true to your own integrity. Satisfy yourself, don't use the satisfaction of others to inflate your ego.

Psychologists will often refer to inner and outer locus of control. Someone with an inner locus of control finds satisfaction from within, looking to satisfy themselves with their work and actions. People with outer locus of control look to others for satisfaction. Which are you?

Avoid seeking validation from other people. Your own validation is all that you need to be special.

6

Surprise yourself. People who are truly special are always changing, shifting, and surprising themselves with their ability to grow as people and to develop their authentic inner selves. If you want to be special, identify a rut that you've been in, and try to get a fresh perspective on it.

Keep learning new skills, reading new books, and challenging yourself. You're never too old, too smart, or too experienced to have your preconceptions shaken. You're never too special to be wrong.

We are not rich by what we possess but by what we can do without.

86. Time Is More Powerful Than You
By CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]
2/2/2020

"When a bird is alive it eats ants..when the bird is dead ants eat the bird!
Time and circumstances can change at anytime..dont devalue or hurt anyone in life.
You may be powerful today..but remember..time is more powerful then you.!!
One tree makes a million match sticks , but when the time comes, only one matchstick is needed to burn a million trees.. so be good and do good..."
* * *


87. Keep Trying
By CEO Buck Rogers
2020-02-02 00:58

Keep trying! Keep reaching! Keep dreaming! Be patient! Your day will come!
Don’t let the reality of life destroy your dreams. Don’t give up.
You owe it to yourself to never let go of your dreams, goals or hopes.
They give meaning to your life. That is why you’ve held on to them for so long. You know you’ve tried your level best and put up the best fight anyone could ever have asked of you. Even when your closest supporter, shows loss of belief in you, and even walks away, don’t let it stop your fight. Keep going till you succeed. Otherwise you have suffered, and struggled for nothing. Stick to what you are trying to do.
After spending the time you have already, suffering from whatever pain it has brought, it would be such a waste to just give up
So, be brave, keep fighting, hold on to your dreams and never give up ever in life! Keep going until you win. Not giving up ever in life must be what you stand for. Success comes to people who have the courage to keep going no matter the obstacles. Life is a test, a tough one, sometimes. And you got to get through it. Sometimes you feel lost.
Doubts and negativity cloud the mind. Just don’t give up. Better times could just be around the corner, so you must keep fighting for just a little longer

89. Looking Better
By CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]
2/1/2020

"People like to bring up your past when your present and future look better than theirs."
* * *


90. Winning

The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential... these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence
* * *


91. Truth

💔I never want to be in an environment or around people where I can't say what I think is the truth. Nothing repels me like dishonesty in a person. Simply because when you lie to the world, you are also lying to yourself. And that kinda sets you on a very wrong path to claim your destiny. I know that, When you act truthful, it comes off as controversial to most people. It is kinda a price you pay for being yourself. That is why I tend to move towards truthful people because I am repulsed by lies. Be very careful in life because any story you start with a lie will always end you in shame. Will you stand for the truth? Will you defend the truth? I am much about honesty and truth.
* * *


92. Problems

Problems are opportunities in work clothes
* * *


93. Lessons

It is funny how we outgrow what we once thought we couldn't live without, and then we fall in love with what we didn't even know we wanted.

Life keeps leading us on journeys we would never go on if it were up to us. Don't be afraid. Have faith. Find the lessons.
* * *

94. Be Strong

You must be strong. You must continue. No matter how high you must climb. Giving up is not an option. All your life you tried. It isn't much further to the top of that crest. Keep your faith. Keep your dream. You will reach them. Where the sun chases the moon.
* * *


95. Purpose to Serve

Find a purpose to serve, not a lifestyle to live.
* * *


96. Nothing Goes Away

Nothing ever goes away until it has taught us what we need to know.
* * *


97. Leadership = Results

He who has never learned to obey cannot be a good commander. —Become the kind of leader that people would follow voluntarily, even if you had no title or position". —Effective leadership is not about making speeches or being liked; leadership is defined by results not attributes"
* * *


98. Greatness Within
CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]
1/29/2020

"How do you keep your head up, maintain your laughter and keep going when life comes at you..fast and hard? One of the most important things you can do is to ask yourself the question ~ What are you looking at?

Today - focus on what can be and what will be... in spite of the odds, despite your present situation, or regardless of the circumstances. Be still and know that...with faith, patience, perseverance, and an unstoppable spirit...things WILL get better. Stand up within yourself and KEEP ON PUSHING. You have comeback power. You have GREATNESS within you!"
* * *


99. Plan Life
CEO Buck Rogers [Conservative]
1/29/2020

I am not a product of my circumstances, I am a product of my decisions
As a matter of fact, our circumstances are largely the product of the decisions we make on a day-to-day basis. Each decision accumulates, adding to each previous decision, to construct those very surroundings we operate within. If you hate your job, all you need to do is trace history to the point you prepared or chose not to prepare for something else. You either looked for other jobs or you didn’t. You spent thousands of hours over years in search of better work or you spent more time watching TV over that same period. You used every moment of spare time to educate yourself and learn new skills to make yourself more marketable or you chose to do something else instead.
The point here isn’t guilt. It’s about responsibility and dropping the victim mentality. There are very few exceptions to the rule that we are the products of our decisions. The very young who are trapped in abusive relationships, prisoners to parental terror, would be such an exception. But even with that past, as adults we choose to heal or to live in the past, to seek help or remain trapped in our own histories.
You can seek therapy and self-help and religious answers to life’s difficulties or booze and drug yourself to temporarily medicate the pain. Even with the ugliest of pasts, there are choices, at least as adults
All of life is an ever-evolving reflection of those choices . The decisions we make lead us down a path that will eventually become the history we regret or the history we celebrate. The more we recognize that fact, the more likely we will think through each decision and plan a life that can be beautiful and richly rewarding and wildly celebrated
* * *


100. Those Who Talk

There are those that do and there are those that talk about what they know how to do
* * *


101. Circle Together

In the circle we are all equal. There is no one in front of you and nobody behind you. No one is above you; no one is below you. A circle is sacred because it is designed to create unity.

Connecting with others through the warmth of human hearts .. we look behind, filled with gratitude .. and look forward, filled with vision .. we turn to each other, with strength and .. turn within, to find peace ..

In a circle, we are sometimes leading, sometimes following .. always strong.
* * *


102. Wisdom

Don’t wish it was easier, wish you were better. Don’t wish for less problems, wish for more skills. Don’t wish for less challenge, wish for more wisdom.
* * *


103. Claim Your Destiny

Stop listening to people saying you can't do it. Your potential is greater than your problems & your problems will bring out your potential. Start to be uncomfortable with where you are & step out in faith & chase the life you want.

Risk something & you will get everything out of life. Refuse to stay in your comfort zone. If you never step out & take the risks, you will record no achievements.

Stop over thinking, stop worrying, stop complaining. Life is too short for all of that. Work hard with faith, smile, live, love to claim your destiny!

You should become what you want to be in life.
* * *


104. Be Humble

For the world is a hard place and hearts can be harder. But if you walk in humility, it will be a kinder place. The world you make for yourself is the heaven or the hell that you walk in. So treat every step as a prayer. Every breath as a blessing. Always be grateful. The journey is a short one. Savor every moment. The good and the bad. That is your Human experience. So, always remember to be Humble.
* * *


105. Attitude

Weakness of attitude can become weakness of character
* * *


106. Opinion

Another person's opinion of you may not be a reality.
* * *


107. New Storm

And the storm will soon come. With it the solice of all stillness. So we wait. And look to future suns and birds of song when the warmth and beauty of newbirth returns. With it, new possibilities of oneness and completion. Change and ressurection of a new cycle, new Spirit, new life.
* * *


108. Things you can not recover in life.

1. A stone after its thrown
2. A word after it is said
3. An occasion after its missed
4. Time after its gone
5. Trust after its lost
* * *


109. Marriage

Marriage is a big deal
This could be heaven or hell
It is not a lack of love
But a lack of understanding
Over time you start noticing
That your marital ship is sinking
It really made me wonder...
How to make a relationship last forever?
When marriage becomes a perfect lie
When a mask is a must...
When parents stay together "for the kids"
Sometimes, marriage is a complex equation
The minute you think of giving up
And you remember the reason
Why you hold on for so long
That's all that matters to you...
Sometimes it's not the people who change
It's the mask that falls off...
Marriage is not all roses and rainbows
It's a sacred bond between two people
Who refuse to give up on each other
And embrace the beauty of flaws
It's a two-way street...
So is love, just like a flower
Either you make it bloom or you ruin it!
If you want, you can make your marriage
More awesome than your wedding
It's all about the one who calms the storm
Finally, a happy marriage is a daily choice
It's not about romance, it's not just love
It's sacrifice that makes it work
* * *


110. Hearts United

Hearts united in pain and sorrow
will not be separated by joy and happiness.
Bonds that are woven in sadness
are stronger than the ties of joy and pleasure.
Love that is washed by tears
will remain eternally pure and faithful
* * *


111. Build You Up

In life you will meet two kinds of people.
Ones who build you up, and ones who tear you down.
But in the end, you will thank them both.
* * *


112. Take Action

You see, in life, lots of people know what to do, but few people actually do what they know. Knowing is not enough! You must take action
* * *


113. All Human

We were all humans until race disconnected us, religion separated us, politics divided us, and wealth classified us.
