Will Rogers

Do the best you can, and don’t take life too serious.


—Will Rogers


Life is quite simple, but we insist on making it complicated.



Maybe it is a fear of failing at what we are attempting to do or to be, but we tend to create roadblocks and complications in our mind that stand in the way of where we wish to go.  Forget them; look straight ahead, see your destination, and take continual steps forward down that royal path.


People who ask confidently get more than those who are hesitant and uncertain. When you’ve figured out what you want to ask for, do it with certainty, boldness and confidence. Don’t be shy or feel intimidated by the experience. You may face some unexpected criticism, but be prepared for it with confidence.

Even if you are feeling the polar opposite of boldness, fake it!  This act, repeated regularly, has amazing powers that will help you become the person you wish to be.

Ambition can creep as well as soar.


—Edmund Burke

We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.

Disney, Walt

—Walt Disney

I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. ‘Tis the business of little minds to shrink, but he whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves his conduct, will pursue his principles unto death.

Paine, Thomas

—Thomas Paine

God is constantly testing us.  That is why we are on this short journey of life—consider earth a proving ground.  The way we act, especially when the going gets tough, judges our character; and the tough times can also be our greatest times of personal and spiritual growth.  As you face the continual challenges of life, identify them for what they are: wonderful opportunities to grow closer to God.


Groucho Friday

The secret of life is honesty and fair dealing. If you can fake that, you’ve got it made.
