Attitude

                                               Attitudes are more important than facts

Enthusiasm is not necessarily a flashy or heated phenomenon, but rather a strong, controlled motivation, and may be present in the quiet and restrained person, as well as in the vigorous extroverted individual. The world belongs to the enthusiast who can keep cool.

Happiness is not correlated to perfect circumstances or a lack of stress in your life, but to the                                          amount of personal accountability you accept

Pray not to change your circumstances but instead to see your circumstances differently

Empowerment without accountability is chaos

Ambiguity is the source of ALL conflict
