January 2018







I think you’ll agree with me that 2017 was quite a year. There were lots of fun times, and excitement along the way, but, many have said they were more than ready for it to be over.

We said good-bye to too many of our loved ones and friends. We had electrical messes, and a lot of civil unrest to deal with. These things certainly took our attention.

The ABC list below may seem a little hokey, but there’s a lot of wisdom in it just the same. I share it as food for thought in the New Year for something better to focus on. Remember, “With God, all things are possible.”

Avoid negative sources, people, places and habits
Believe in yourself
Consider things from every angle
Don’t give up and don’t give in
Everything you’re looking for lies behind the mask you wear
Family and friends are hidden treasures, seek them and enjoy their riches
Give more than you planned to
Hang onto your dreams
If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door
Judge your success by what you had to give up in order to get it
Keep trying no matter how hard it seems
Love yourself
Make it happen
Never lie, steal or cheat
Open your arms to change, but don’t let go of your values
Practice makes perfect
Quality not quantity in anything you do
Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer
Stop procrastinating
Take control of your own destiny
Understand yourself in order to better understand others
Visualize it
When you lose, don’t lose the lesson
Xcell in all your efforts (Be nice. Very few words start with X!)
You are unique, nothing can replace you
Zero in on your target and go for it
