Today's Inspirational Quote!

"Regard your good name as the richest jewel you can possibly
be possessed of -- for credit is like fire; when once you have
kindled it you may easily preserve it, but if you once
extinguish it, you will find it an arduous task to rekindle it
again. The way to gain a good reputation is to endeavor to be
what you desire to appear."

-- Socrates

Our society, as the scales have tipped toward individual rights and away for Judeo-Christian values, has immersed itself in pursuit of self gratifying activity. Focus on personal peace and affluence has largely replaced deeply held, self sacrificing convictions which benefit the human condition. The path to significance is bigger than the individual.

We often only spend our energies to satisfy ourselves, rather than to serve others. Significance is not possible unless what we…

" Speak, Write, Tweet, and Post "

 

How to write on Facebook:

 

Facebook offers the widest variety of communication possibilities and it's getting wider every day. I recommend that you have two Facebook pages: one for your personal life and one for your business. Keep them separate.

Here's where to start:

Post with pictures or short one- or two-line posts with links that will take me someplace and allow me to read more if interested. Write about events with significance. Write your ideas…

" Speak, Write, Tweet, and Post "

 

The secret to writing is fairly simple; Write like you talk. For one, as long as you can think, have an idea or want to expand a thought, you will never be at loss for words.

Reading what you write in "speak" is also much more conversational. Writing in "speak" makes your words easy to read, easy to understand and, in my case, easy to implement.

On that note, read aloud as you edit. This one secret will give you more writing power than you can imagine. It exposes every…

" Lessons about Life "

 

Everthing I know, everything I need to know, I learned from Noah's Ark: 

ONE: Don't miss the boat. 

TWO: Remember that we are all in the same boat. THREE: Plan ahead. It wasn't raining when Noah built the Ark. 

FOUR: Stay Fit. When you're 60 (like Noah), someone may ask you to do something big. 

FIVE: Don't listen to critics, just get on with the job that needs to be done. 

SIX: Build your future on high ground. 

SEVEN: For…
