Words of Wisdom

“Today is the first day of the rest of your life. Are you satisfied with where you are and the direction you are going? If not, take control of your life and change whatever needs to be changed. You and only you have the power to do this. And only you can change your world!” – Napoleon Hill

“A great life includes something worth living for, maybe even worth dying for. A portion of a great life would be devoted to something bigger, greater, grander than yourself. Something that inspires you, energizes you, pulls you forward. Something that responds to your unique talent or touch and, ultimately, makes a difference in the world around you. A great life would naturally bring more meaning, purpose, love, laughter, wonder, and adventure to your days. And, at the end of your journey you would look back on a life of significance, rather than regret – knowing in your heart that you left the world better than you found it. Knowing that you made a difference in the lives of others. Knowing that you got something wonderful out of it, and you gave something wonderful back. A great life, of course, is not something we experience, it’s something we create.” – Dan Zadra and Kobi Yamado (from the book, “One: How many people does it take to make a difference?” (2009)
