Margaret Mead said, “Never doubt that a small group of committed people can change the world. In fact, it is the only thing that ever has.”
It is well researched that the group of people we surround ourselves with have the power to influence our thoughts, feelings and actions; and ultimately, the results we create in life. Our success is directly related to the amount of support that we create and accept in our lives.
One strategy to create this kind of support, as used
Although no sculptured marble should rise to their memory, nor engraved stone bear record of their deeds, yet will their remembrance be as lasting as the land they honored. ~ Daniel Webster Memorial Day this year is especially important as we are reminded almost daily of the great sacrifices that the men and women of the Armed Services make to defend our way of life.

Michelangelo once said that the greatest danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that our aim is actually too low and we reach it.
Most often we set a goal we think we can achieve that is based in circumstances -- But circumstances are our history; they are not made of our destiny.
