Goodness…

Since the beginning of time as we know it, there has been evil in the world. Yet, there’s a lot of good, too. Don’t be afraid to rock the boat against injustice. Speak up for those who feel like they don’t have a voice. We need more good people to lead well…

It isn’t easy, but it will free you from the demons inside your head. You will be free…

We live in a world where comparison reigns. Do your best and eliminate comparison from your mindset. Do not allow or accept the expectations of the world.

You’re Different…

Everyone you meet is different from you. Embrace the differences, don’t fight them. Learn from each other rather than dividing further.

What Matters Most…

Are you trying to be the busiest person around? After all, our culture believes that high activity is the honorable way. Do not fall into the trap of being too busy for the important things: family, friends and your health.
