In Your Mind, How Important is Winning??

Winning is not everything, but the effort to win is.
Zig Ziglar

I think people need to learn that lesson. It's true as long as it doesn't  stress you out every time you don't win!

What Moves the World

Enthusiasm moves the world.
J Balfour

Just one little word that has so much power.  What were you enthusiastic about today?? And, what are you going to be enthusiastic about tomorrow??

How To Make Myself Like You

There is nothing to make you like other human beings so much as doing things for them.
Zora Neale Hurston

Couldn't help it. I thought that was a funny title but it is true. I promised to work for 8 hours on family trees but found that I went way beyond that because I began to like the owners... even though I had never met them before in my life.  Who knew lol!

How To Master That Goal

Before you begin a thing, remind yourself that difficulties and delays are quite impossible to foresee are ahead... You can only see one thing clearly and that is your goal. Form a mental vision of that and cling to it through thick and thin.

Kathleen Norris

It's funny how a quote will just jump out at you. At the moment I am working on my genealogical credentials and that requires hours and hours of free research  work to master my skills. I am on my third  family tree and I have hit all kinds of obstacles but  I have figured them all out!! Holding that mental vision in my mind of being a professional genealogist keeps me going after spending an hour searching with no results!! Good luck with your goal today ;)  You will master it if you don't quit!

A Word To Hate With Everything You've Got!!

The "how" thinker gets problems solved effectively because he wastes no time with futile "ifs".
Norman Vincent Peale

I wonder just how much time we really do waste by letting that little word into our minds?
