Every so often, I am reminded of an important message. I think this is a message for all of us to remember, and I would like to share it with you:
"A real success is not someone who has never failed, but someone who has never quit."

Do you ever sit and dream about how you’d like your life to be –
Trips you’d like to take …
Cars, homes, and vacation properties you’d like to own?
Do you ever dream of earning 3, 4, even TEN TIMES your present income? What happens? Do you talk yourself out of your dreams? Push them aside while you tend to the details of your day?
