Sometimes you face difficulties not because you’re doing something wrong, But because you’re doing something right.
Remember: when you talk, you only repeat what you already know. If you listen, you may learn something.
The past is behind, learn from it. The future is ahead, prepare for it. The present is here, live it.
When you focus on problems, you’ll have more problems. When you focus on possibilities, you’ll have more opportunities.
A good life is when you smile often , dream big , laugh a lot , and realize how blessed you are for what you have.
Be strong when you are weak, brave when you are scared and humble when you are victorious.
Sometimes it takes the worst pain to bring about the best change.
Respect people’s feelings. Even if it doesn’t mean anything to you, it could mean everything to them.
TODAY will never come again. Be a blessing. Be a friend. Encourage someone. Take time to care. Let your words heal, and not wound.
For there will never cease to be poor in the land. Therefore I command you, ‘You shall open wide your hand to your brother, to the needy and to the poor, in your land
Whoever has a bountiful eye will be blessed, for he shares his bread with the poor.
In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’”
- Keep on going, and the chances are that you will stumble on something, perhaps when you are least expecting it. I have never heard of anyone ever stumbling on something sitting down.”
Charles F. Kettering
- “If you genuinely want something, don’t wait for it–teach yourself to be impatient.”
- “You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backward. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something–your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.”

Everything that happens helps you grow
Even if it’s hard to see right now.
– Circumstances will direct you, correct you, and perfect you over time. Sometimes these circumstances knock you down, hard. There will be times when it seems like everything that could possibly go wrong is going wrong. And you might feel like you will be stuck in this rut forever, but you won’t. When you feel like quitting, remember that sometimes things have to go very wrong before they can be right. Sometimes you have to go through the worst, to arrive at your best. Because our most significant opportunities are often found in times of great difficulty.
AND YOU will face your greatest opposition when you are closest to your biggest miracle.
Big Johnny Doesn’t Pay
One day, a bus driver drove off along the route with everything looking normal for the first few stops, as usual. At the next stop, a big tall guy full of muscles got on. He glared at the bus driver and said, “Big Johnny doesn’t pay!” and went to the back and sat down. Now the driver was five feet two, thin, and rather meek. He was not happy about Big Johnny’s attitude, but he decided not to argue with him. The next day Big Johnny got on again, refused to pay, saying the exact same thing and sat down. And this was repeated also the next day, and the day after, and so forth, for weeks. The bus driver started to get irritated with Big Johnny’s attitude. Finally, he would stand it no more. He signed up for karate and body building courses as well as self-defense lessons. By the end of the autumn, he had become quite confident and strong. So on the next day, when Big Johnny got on the bus and said, “Big Johnny doesn’t pay!” the driver stood up. He glared back at Big Johhny and screamed, “And why not, Mister?” With a very surprised look on his face, Big Johnny replied, “eehhhh… Big Johnny has a bus pass
