At the Edge of a Cliff

Friday, July 22nd, 2016

When standing at the edge of any cliff you always have choices.       No Contact

You can choose to stare at what’s below.

You can imagine the fall.

You can simply take the plunge.

On the other hand…

You can take a quick glance at what lies below and forget it.

Your future does not lie at the bottom of the cliff.

Look around…

Your future lies in the solid ground beneath your feet and the

path that takes you away from any cliff you may encounter.

If at First You Don’t Succeed

Thursday, February 6th, 2014

If at first you don’t succeed

If at second you don’t succeed

If at third you don’t succeed

If at fourth you don’t succeed

If at fifth you don’t succeed

Reevaluate your strategy

You are likely very close but just missing one or

two key elements that will help you move forward.

At the brink of failure things often turn around

You will never know if you quit.

Quitting puts a period where there might have been an exclamation


Life is full of periods.

We have to fight for our exclamation points.

Don’t give up!
