We rise to high positions or remain at the bottom because of how we manage the conditions we actually have control over. But this only happens if we desire to control them. Know what you want and go for it. You can control the outcome if you are willing to sacrifice (have love) for that desire...(3D)

Know what you really want......

Look around and realize how important the people around you are. If you don't feel they are important, then why have them around? Surround yourself with those that care about your well-being and your success. It’s important to be selfish sometimes because thinking about yourself first make others realize how important you really are to them. Not being at their beck and call makes them realize how much value you were to them....(3D)

Watch the company you keep.....

All great leaders have followed the lead of another great leader. To be successful you have to model yourself after successful people. Most things we want in life, we will find someone else has already achieved them. But that is a good thing, it gives us a model to follow, and one we can improve on. It would be foolish not to do some of the same things the model did to get their desired results. Take what you learn and add to it to create your own path to success...(3D)

Leaders follow leaders....

If you let the small set backs in life get you down there is no way you will be able to handle the major ones. Sometimes taking one small step backwards allows you to see the next few steps forward clearly. The future will seem cloudy if your path is not grounded in faith, and if you don’t use your past as a tool for education. We would not be who we are if we did not learn from what we have done...(3D)

Dont let the small things get to you....

The strongest power is the power of thought. Thought can move people to move mountains. The joy you feel when you are in a good state of mind is the purest form of positive thought. Negative thoughts are just what they sound like—a minus. They detract from the positive. If you allow negative into your life you are taking away from your life. Stay positive and you’ll stay alive…(3D)

You get more out of life when you think positive......

Don’t rely on others to fill your void of happiness. You never know what octane they will put in your tank. Even if they do offer you temporary happiness, when there is no one around you will not know how to pump your own gas—how to be happy on your own. You will be left stranded without a way out. Self-reliance is self-empowerment. The more you rely on others, the more power you give them over you and your ability to reach your goals. Find your inner strength and you will free yourself from needing others more than the healthy amount…(3D)

Strive for self-fulfillment.....

Thursday, June 27, 2013

Watching TV strengthens the eyes and reading a book strengthens the mind. There are a lot of things you can learn from watching TV but the information is precooked. It’s like putting dinner in the microwave; it will get the job done but won’t taste the same or be as enjoyable as cooking it. Words on paper stimulate the mind and stimulate your imagination while pictures on the screen are the already-formed imagination of someone else and do not require your imagination to work….(3D)

Your library should always be bigger than your TV

Tuesday, June 25, 2013

When dark days come and tears flow like running water remember that seeds require water to grow. Allow the tears that fall to be the beginning of new life. Put all you have into letting go. It's hard to get filled with joy when you are overflowing with sadness. Tears are a way to release sadness so you have more room for joy, so cry as often as you need. Just don't allow the water to be wasted. Plant good seeds in good soil and let the tears and sweat feed your seed.......(3D)

Tears are a good way to release the things we hold on to for too long...

Love is something that comes with great reward but with every great reward there is great sacrifice. To truly feel what love can do you must be willing to give all of yourself and completely let go of ego or a fear of being vulnerable. The reward of giving all is getting all that love can bring. But, because there is such a great sacrifice involved, you must be careful of who and what you decide to love. Only love who or what you have faith to love you back. Your will should be greater than the gift because once you give all of yourself you will have nothing else left if the receiver is not worthy of the gift…(3D)

Love requires you to give of yourself.....

Friday, June 21, 2013

Things that matter most are the things that weigh in your mind the heaviest. You can lighten your burdens of stress by removing people who add to your load. Real friends should be taking on some of your stress and carrying it on their shoulders. Everyone needs help but choosing the wrong people to get help from can be more burdensome than doing it alone.…(3D)

What do real friends do?

Thursday, June 20, 2013

Great success comes from great adversity. With every seed of disappointment grows a tree of victory with branches of triumph and leaves of accomplishments. Those leaves come and go as often as the seasons change, so make sure to enjoy them when they are present and remember what it was like to have them when the winter comes and times are hard. And remember, spring always follows winter no matter what happens…(3D)

Don't spend time trying to change things you cant....

Wednesday, June 19, 2013

Parents and mentors often say,Do as I say and not as I do.But in reality, we follow what our mentors do rather than what they say. People naturally follow by example so watch your actions more than you weigh your words—they speak louder….(3D)

Actions Speak Louder...

Tuesday, June 18, 2013

If you ever want to change your status in life, change your priorities first. Adjusting the things you put emphasis on will adjust the results you get when you desire something. Priorities are the ingredients that go into reaching goals. You have to add them at the proper time and in the proper order or your dough won’t rise. You must watch over them with a careful eye or your dreams will burn and become unreachable…(3D)

Priorities are the life blood of success.....

Monday, June 17, 2013

Everyone is born with expectations of success in life but with success comes great responsibility. Some people never seem to stop feeding from the bottle of life because it’s much easier to suck then it is to chew. They don’t want to put the effort in, they just want to get the nutrients out the easy way. They are the same people who feed off others and never give to anyone. Their eyes are closed and to the greater successes it could bring them because they are blinded by laziness…(3D)

We all need to grow up at some point.......

Friday, June 14, 2013

A spider constructs a new web every night to catch a meal. Meanwhile, some people won’t even look for a job to get a check. Pride is often the biggest roadblock on the path to achievement and it is only removed by the willingness to become humble. Those that allow this roadblock to remain on the path never see the end of the road and get trapped in their own web of short falls. They do not see that if they give up their pride, they will get something much better…(3D)

If your not willing to put in the work you wont get the reward...

Thursday, June 13, 2013

Stress causes the body to function improperly. Don’t allow things that you cannot change to stress you. If you can change it do something about it right away. Stress has been known to stop life. Since stress is self-induced, it can be considered a form of suicide. Things always work out for the best when they are meant to. You cannot put a rush on fate but you can put a rush on faith…(3D)

90% of the things we worry about never happen...

Wednesday, June 12, 2013

Accepting things you cannot change is the start to a productive and healthy life. No one picks their parents, birthplace, or time of birth. Those things just come to us the same way our appearance comes to us due to our genetic code. Focus on changing the things you can change like health and knowledge to free yourself from self-destruction. There is no point in chasing your dreams if you are not healthy enough to enjoy them when you attain them. Improve your health, if not for yourself then for the people who love you…(3D)

Accept the things you can not change.....

Tuesday, June 11, 2013

Pride builds confidence and confidence encourages faith. Be proud of who you are or make changes to your character so you can be proud of the person you will become. This self-pride helps your confidence rise like a helium balloon. You don’t have to become the person you want to become over night, but every small step you make to become that person will make you feel proud. Too much pride will explode but with the right amount your confidence level will rise and you will soon be in the clouds of faith. Faith is so powerful it will get you through all hard times and will help you become victorious in all battles…(3D)

Seek Pride through confidence...

Monday, June 10, 2013

Where there is effort there are results. Don’t blame others for your shortcomings in life. Instead, use those shortcomings as opportunities to work harder. When you become content with your efforts, then the standards of what you have to do to feel satisfied become instantly higher. Being comfortable is the seed of laziness. Don’t get caught up in just doing what is asked of you because you will receive minimum rewards. Perform always to your max and your rewards will soon be matched…(3D)

Being lazy will give you expected results....

Friday, June 7, 2013

Taking the time to truly understand will prevent premature actions and unnecessary feelings of regret. We are all subject to over reacting to the actions or words of people, but if we stop and think fully about why they said or did it, we might react differently. Fast actions sometimes lead to long regrets. Be careful of your reactions because you can’t take back the past but you can alter the future….(3D) 

Think before you act so you don't regret...

Thursday, June 6, 2013

A second chance is not often given if the attempts the first time around were incorrect attempts. If you want something as much as you want to breath then you won’t let opportunity pass you by. Don’t allow your eyes to close because if you don’t see a chance coming you won’t be able to take advantage of it. When you are in full pursuit of a goal or dream you should not allow things like sleep get in the way. Our bodies are designed to last as long as we are active. Staying still weakens our muscles and mind, so act now and rest when the job is done…(3D)

Rest is for the tired...

Wednesday, June 5, 2013

Energy cannot be created nor destroyed but it can be attracted and directed. If you feel like you don’t have any energy left to achieve what you want then find a way to direct more energy to yourself. No one has a great impact on the world without the help of others either directly or indirectly. People have passed energy through time and space through recorded messages in books and other media. It’s up to you to find sources of energy to help you keep pushing ahead. If you ever feel drained of energy, find a source to fill that void…(3D)

Don't let others drain your positive energy....

Tuesday, June 4, 2013

Never take your aim off the target because once you do you will lose sight of your dream. Negativity and discouragement are sure-fire ways to miss your target. When you allow these things to overshadow your efforts you can’t see where you’re going. Being able to see what’s around the next bend allows you to move at a faster pace because you can trust in your path and abilities to succeed. Stay focused on your main objective or your objective will become your main disappointment…(3D)

Stay focused on your main objective....

Monday, June 3, 2013

If given the opportunity to lead most would decline. People love to have the title of leader because of the glory it brings but they don’t want the responsibility that it carries with it. A leader must be willing to accept all responsibility for the actions of its followers and be willing to sacrifice themselves if things go wrong. Leaders never point a finger at anyone unless they are looking in the mirror. We must realize we are leaders to people around us whether we want to be or not. A leader who does not take responsibility for the actions of his followers is the worst kind of leader with the most unsuccessful followers…(3D)

Being a leader is more then a title....

Friday, May 31, 2013

The greatest gift you could ever give someone is showing them how to get back on their feet after they have fallen. Giving someone a helping hand will help them stand temporarily but showing them how to stand will help them anytime they fall. Don’t give someone a temporary solution to a long time problem. That will only hurt them more in the long run because it will teach them to always look for temporary solutions. We tend to want to feel good for the day and worry about tomorrow when it comes but this turns tomorrow’s issues into lifetime concerns. In order to feel joy tomorrow deal with your issues today…(3D)

Show People how to Stand on their own...

Wednesday, May 29, 2013

Once discouragement has set into your mind then the smallest thing will block your path. You begin to come up with reasons and excuses as to why you are not able to do things and these excuses become bricks that are bonded with discouragement. The higher you build this wall, the more energy you will need to climb over it. Energy being faith that is generated from confidence. Believe that the gifts you were given can take you where you want to go and don’t allow the foundation of discouragement to ever set…(3D)

Don't allow discouragement to stop you from succeeding

Tuesday, May 28, 2013

The most creative and innovative ideas have come to us when times are the roughest. That is because they come out of necessity. We tend to think about new ways of doing things when the regular ways are just out of our reach. When things are easy and given to us we don’t try to enhance them because we become content. Contentment causes us to be caught off guard when something bad happens. If we constantly think about what we can do to improve our situations then we will never be worried when the carpet is removed from under our feet. We will know we have methods to move forward…(3D)

Be a forward thinker to move forward in life.....

Thursday, May 23, 2013

We all want to make it to the top as fast as possible but to get there we must go through trials and tribulations. Starting from the bottom and working your way up is the best way to guarantee you will remain at the top once you are there. It may seem like it is taking forever to get there but all that time is necessary to learn the lessons that life has in store for us. Action will lead to more action and the harder you work towards the goals you have set, the greater you will enjoy the fruits of your labor…(3D)

Set Massive Goals because of what they will make of you.....

Wednesday, May 22, 2013

Love is something that you must never force. It is like holding sand in your hand. If you try to grasp it too tightly, the sand begins to fall through your fingers.  The harder you squeeze, the faster it falls from your grasp. Accept it when it comes to you but never assume it’s there. You will know if it is right because nothing else will compare and the person you love will feel the same….(3D)

Never force Love....

The sunshine shines at night; it just depends on where you are standing on earth. Your positioning determines whether or not you will be warmed by its rays. If you cannot see the light, then look in a different direction and stand in a different place. Darkness is just an opportunity to brighten an area that is being shaded by neglect. Sometimes we all need to bring light to areas in our life that we often shade with neglect. Don’t allow problems to grow into nights of worry when you can turn them into days of sunshine…(3D)

If you dont like what you see look at it from a different direction...

Family is the backbone that gives strength to life. All difficult things are eased with the slightest soft touch or word from a family member. But family does not always come in the form of relatives. Sometimes it comes to us as friends or neighbors. But family can always be found when you are in need of a shoulder to lean on or a couch to lay on. Family is the reason for all wars and the cause of all peace. We are only as strong as the family ties we have and the relationships we build. Express your love to your family and their love will bring meaning to your life everyday...(3D)

Family should always be first.....

Friday, May 17, 2013

Don’t worry about the negative things people say about you. Use them as catapults to reach greater heights. People will not always tell you the things you want to hear but they will tell you things that you need to hear. The negative should make the positive even more influential because the people who made negative comments will be even more surprised by the positive outcome. People who tell you negative things are often trying to displace negative feelings they are having about themselves. They are projecting their feelings onto you. It makes people feel good to downgrade others because it gives them a sense of power. But that is a power that soon dissipates. Like cells in a battery, the more you use them the faster they die….(3D)

Negative people drain their power faster....

Thursday, May 16, 2013

Being great is a product of taking advantage of opportunity. Opportunities happen when you make the decision to allow circumstance to be helpful. The result of your decision shows how well you were able to understand the situation and handle it. Most of these situations can be handled quite well if you take the time to understand everything about them. Be patient in making your decisions and allow your heart to lead in times that the mind may be lost…(3D)

Opportunity is around you just open your eyes...

Wednesday, May 15, 2013

Never give up hope because hope is like the heart; it keeps the blood of determination flowing through your veins, and without that blood, you cannot take any sort of action. If you stop thinking that there is a way, if you lose hope, then all possible roads to victory will be closed, because your hope paved those roads. It always takes time for desired results to manifest. Time is something that we cannot control, and we don’t like to be without control. When you feel out of control and as if time is passing too slowly, think of what you can control. We can control how and what we do in the time while we are waiting. When you are waiting to hear back from one job, apply to others. When you are waiting to hear if your partner has cheated on you, surround yourself with friends and family; cultivate the relationships that are steadfast in your life. The more we are actively pursuing our goals the closer they come within our reach…(3D)

Hope and Faith are the life blood of success...

Tuesday, May 14, 2013

If you want to make changes, if you want to move forward, stop and reflect on where you have been and what you have been through. Sometimes, in order to move forward in the right direction, you should look in your rear view mirror first to make sure the cars that you have passed are still behind you—that your tribulations are still in your past. If you allow them to be in your present then you are sure to run into them again, and again they will prevent you from going in the direction you need to go in…(3D) 

Make sure to look behind you to know where you have been....

Monday, May 13, 2013

Nothing in life is more important than understanding self-worth. When you lose sight of how much you are truly worth, then you can’t understand how important you are to others. You lose sight of how you could be helpful to others, and so you’ve lost sight of your biggest purpose in life. Each and every person makes our society what it is, whether that’s good or bad at times. When one person is removed or taken away, the influence of the person is also removed. No one is born without a purpose. Whether we are here for a few minutes or 100 years, we all have a purpose. Life is all about the search for it, so that we can ensure we do more of it…(3D) 

Find your Purpose....

Friday, May 10, 2013

Most people don’t succeed because they don’t want to pay the price for success. What is that price? It’s saying no to instant gratification and quick fixes. It’s passing up on small, immediate pleasures so you have time to work towards a larger, more sustainable pleasure. It is a price that is constantly rising if you are standing still—if you are not doing something every day to work towards your success. It is much better to pay for it now than to wait and wake up one day to realize, I’m not where I thought I would be at this point in my life. And I have SO much work to do to get there. There is never a sale price on success because, like with anything, value goes down with price. But you can guarantee that if you do pay the full price you will get exactly what you pay for ….success in realizing your dreams…(3D)

To get a Ticket to success you need to pay the price....

Thursday, May 9, 2013

Being faithful to someone in a relationship means exactly what it sounds like, being full of faith. You must have total belief that you do not have to go elsewhere for satisfaction, because your partner will continue loving you and satisfying you. Your partner in turn will continue to remain faithful—full of faith that you will continue loving and satisfying them—and they will not go elsewhere. Surround yourself with people whose actions fill you with faith, and you will remain faithful to them….(3D)

Become full of faith (faithful) to the one you love...

Wednesday, May 1, 2013

If you don’t know what and who true friends are, then look and see who is around you when you’re at the lowest point in your life. If you want to know who and what will bring you down when you’re at the top, keep in mind the people who are only around when things are going well for you. The saying “more money, more problems” exists because the higher you get in life, the more people will show up who want to take things from you. No one likes to feel inferior to anyone else, so they bring you down to where they are, sometimes even lower. Be aware of who you tell when things are going well, because they could easily be the reason things soon go bad…(3D)

More Money More Problems

Tuesday, April 30, 2013

Motivation comes from stimulation. Put yourself in places with people and events that will inspire you and provide models of what you hope to attain. It’s great to be motivated by your dreams, but if you can put yourself in real life situations that will motivate you, even better….(3D)

Find your Stimulation

Monday, April 29, 2013

When someone does something to you that makes you upset try to find something nice you can do for them. When someone has hurt you and they know they have hurt you, they expect you to retaliate. If you do the opposite and do something nice, they well be left feeling even worse for what they did. Kill anger with kindness and your heart will be filled with more joy then vengeance….(3D)  

Kill them with kindness....

Friday, April 26, 2013

People judge how others are doing by looking at their outside appearance and how they carry themselves. We tend to lean on these people when we have an issue or problem. But being a crutch is draining. Don’t let others weigh you down with their problems unless they are people who are willing to help you in return with your problems. If they only take from you, you will not have enough strength to handle your own issues. Sometimes you must tell people you can’t listen to their problems because once you do, they become your problems. People want you to share in their problems because a problem divided is much easier to overcome. That is understandable but choose which battles you take on with others. Help the friends who provide support for you in return, or else you will lose your strength….(3D) 

Dont let other people weigh you down

Wednesday, April 24, 2013

Excuses are the building blocks of an unsuccessful life. The more you use them, the higher the wall becomes that prevents you from reaching your goals. Excuses are used when we are not willing to do all that it takes to get to where we want to be. We use them to explain why we are in the situation we are currently in and why we can’t get out of it. Or rather, to make it seem like we can’t get out of it. Once we get into the habit of using excuses they just keep coming and become a way of life. If you think about what you say before you open your mouth and let an excuse out, you might be able to stop the wall from being built. Sometimes it’s better to not say nothing at all then to allow excuses to represent who you are…(3D)

Dont use Excuses

Tuesday, April 23, 2013

As you begin to turn a new page in life never forget the words on the page before because when you get to the next one you may be lost. Get into the story and become the main character. Only then will you understand what the author was trying to depict. Every book has a meaning and purpose that is trapped between the first and last chapter. Turn each page in the book of life with a desire to find its true purpose. Don’t be in a great rush to get to the last page. Enjoy all the hard work that was put in between, and recognize the connections between one page and the next, and the progression. Your main goal in life should be to find definition to unclear objectives—to find a pattern and a process to achieve your goals….(3D) 

Never forget what got you here

Monday, April 22, 2013

Anger is a result of letting something bother you to the point that you can’t control your actions. This is when your thoughts are expressed in outward aggression and turn into unintended, hurtful actions towards people and things you did not really intend to hurt. When you feel as if you are at that point of anger you should separate yourself from others and find a place within yourself to calm down. Think about what you really want to say before expressing your thoughts. By doing this, you will save your relationships and your intentions will not be misunderstood….(3D)

Dont get angry....

Wednesday, April 17, 2013

You learn what’s best by trying different things. You cannot identify the correct method until you’ve tried the wrong ones. Be wary of the paths you take in an attempt to reach your end goal. If you go too fast, you might be thrown off when you reach a sharp turn. If you go too slowly, then you might miss out on opportunity. Move with a persistent but cautious step so that when you fall, you can at least know that you did everything you could and that the fall was your fault…(3D) 

Wednesday, April 10, 2013

It is much wiser to act, achieve success but to not take the credit. When you act to gain acknowledgment and not because it is the right thing to do, the only thing you gain is self-destruction through self-indulgence. If you fill yourself with credit, then if things fall apart, you will not be prepared to pay the consequences. If you do things because you want to, then accomplishments will never yield an interest rate you can afford to pay….(3D) 

Dont always take credit for the things you do

Tuesday, April 9, 2013

To live is to be soft and supple. To die is to become hard and brittle. The hardest weapon will be broken the easiest and the hardest of wood is easiest to knock down in the slightest of wind. So if you strive to be the hardest and most mighty then you fail in your pursuit of success. But if you open your mind and heart and speak with lively words then your actions will remain fluid and move in the direction of success…(3D)

Work Life Balance

Monday, April 8, 2013

The most successful people are the ones who know when they do not know something—ones who know their limitations. Pretending you know something is the quickest way to failure. People who pretend to know things and act as they do attract people who pretend to be friends. But when something happens and you need a friend to lend a hand, then you will find out that your friends were only pretending that they knew how to be there for you….(3D)

People who pretend attract fake people

Thursday, April 4, 2013

If you ask for something you really want, it will come. Have faith without discernment. That means faith that doesn’t waver because things look good or bad one day. Ask and believe you will receive something and you will. You only have to ask for it once, but believe every moment that it will come. If you ask for something more than once, that is a sign that your faith has wavered. If you ask for something and spend your time planning what you’ll do when it comes, then you will be prepared to receive it. If you don’t prepare for something that you have asked for, it may be taken away or pass you by just as fast as it came to you…..(3D) 

To get you must Ask
