Right Timing

God's delays are not God's denials.
Lord, give me the guidance to know when to hold on and when to let go and the grace to make the right decision with dignity.

Does Not Give Up Easily

The best antidote to discouragement is motivation. A person who is both personally and permanently motivated doesn't give up easily!

Shoot Higher

Always dream and shoot higher than you know you can reach. Don't bother just to be better than your contemporaries and predecessors; try to be better than yourself.

Long Term Enthusiasm

One man has enthusiasm for 30 minutes, another for 30 days, but it is the man who has it for 30 years who makes a success of his life.

Well Defined Goals

The reason most people never reach their goals is that they don't define them, or ever seriously consider them as believable or achievable. Winners can tell you where they are going, what they plan to do along the way, and who will be sharing the adventure with them.

Time Well Spent

Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer's day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.

Shining Light

"You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.

Matthew 5:14-16 (NIV)

Pick Ourselves Up

Burning desire to be or do something gives us staying power - a reason to get up every morning or to pick ourselves up and start in again after a disappointment.

Must Not Only Act

To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.

Faced With A Mountain

Never let a problem become an excuse.
When faced with a mountain, I will not quit! I will keep on striving until I climb over, find a pass through, tunnel underneath - or simply stay and turn the mountain into a gold mine, with God's help!

Love Never Fails

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. 

1 Corinthians 13:4-8 (NIV)

The Echo Of Life

A man and his son were walking in the forest.
Suddenly the boy trips and feeling a sharp pain he screams, "Ahhhhh."
Surprised, he hears a voice coming from the mountain, "Ahhhhh!"
Filled with curiosity, he screams: "Who are you?", but the only answer he receives is: "Who are you?"
This makes him angry, so he screams: "You are a coward!", and the voice answers: "You are a coward!"
He looks at his father, asking, "Dad, what is going on?"
"Son," the man replies, "pay attention!" Then he screams, "I admire you!"
The voice answers: "I admire you!"
The father shouts, "You are wonderful!", and the voice answers: " You are wonderful!"
The boy is surprised, but still can't understand what is going on.
Then the father explains, “People call this ‘ECHO’ but truly it is ‘LIFE!’ Life always gives you back what you give out! Life is a mirror of your actions. If you want more love, give more love!
If you want more kindness, give more kindness! If you want understanding and respect, give understanding and respect. If you want people to be patient and respectful to you, give patience and respect! This rule of nature applies to every aspect of our lives.”
Life always gives you back what you give out. Your life is not a coincidence, but a mirror of your own doings.

Giving Comforts

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God. For just as the sufferings of Christ flow over into our lives, so also through Christ our comfort overflows.

2 Corinthians 1:3-5 (NIV)

Different Kinds of Good Weather

Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather.

Snow Falls

Advice is like snow; the softer it falls, the longer it dwells upon, and the deeper it sinks into, the mind.

Melting Snow

Begin doing what you want to do now. We are not living in eternity. We have only this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand... and melting like a snowflake. Let us use it before it is too late.

New Idea

One's mind, once stretched by a new idea, never regains its original dimensions.

Oliver Wendell Holmes

The moment you are in tension,
you will lose your attention
This will put you in total confusion 
and you'll feel the irritation 
which might spoil personal relation
Ultimately, you won't get cooperation,
which will cause complication.
You'll then need to watch your BP with caution,
and you may have to take medication.
Instead, understand the situation,
try to think of a solution.
Many problems will be solved by discussion,
which will work out better in your profession.
This is not my free suggestion,
it is only for prevention.
If you understand my intention,
you'll never come again to tension!

Closed Door

When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us.

Eagle Stirs Up Its Nest

For the LORD's portion is his people, 
       Jacob his allotted inheritance.

In a desert land he found him, 
       in a barren and howling waste. 
       He shielded him and cared for him; 
       he guarded him as the apple of his eye,

like an eagle that stirs up its nest 
       and hovers over its young, 
       that spreads its wings to catch them 
       and carries them on its pinions.

Deuteronomy 32:9-11 (NIV)
