A great example of a positive outlook and facing in the direction you want to move.

I read something this morning that grabbed my attention.  Did you know that Green Bay coach Mike McCarthy believed so certainly in his teams victory that he had all of his players fitted for their championship rings on Saturday night?!  A bold move that will surely go down in Superbowl legend.

It made me realize we should all have that kind of belief in things we undertake.

It’s easy to have faith in yourself when you’re a winner, when
you’re number one.  What you’ve got to have is faith in
yourself when you’re not a winner.
– Vince Lombardi

Confidence is contagious. So is lack of confidence.
Vince Lombardi

If you aren’t fired with enthusiasm, you will be fired with enthusiasm.

Dictionary is the only place that success comes before work. Hard work is the price we must pay for success. I think you can accomplish anything if you’re willing to pay the price.
Vince Lombardi


We are continually faced by great opportunities brilliantly disguised
as insoluble problems.

It’s not whether you get knocked down, it’s whether you get up.

Get off your rich ass and help somebody

My friend and mentor Donna Maria shared this video, and I couldn’t wait to share it with you. The title contains the first (and probably last) piece of profanity I have ever used at this blog. I assure you, it’s justified. Watch this video, by Ron and Tasra Dawson, and you’ll see what I mean.

I agree with dM, “If you are among my regular blog readers, and you watched this video, and can now think of a single thing to complain about, then shame on you. And shame on me too, if I start feeling sorry for myself.”

While not every assumption applies to us all, the general premise does! A grateful heart coupled with hands that help is a VERY powerful combo indeed!

Follow Donna Maria on twitter and read her blog here.   Learn more about Ron at his Twitter page and his blog, and also at their Teen Identity Project.

Now get off your rich ass and go help somebody …

What will you do to make a difference for someone else???
