July 2009

Greetings Everyone,

Can you believe that we are now officially in the second half of 2009? And if you are like me 2009 has indeed been a challenge, and to be transparent I cannot recall a more challening year personally, professionally, mentally and spiritually but something my Pastor said today really stuck with me and I would be remiss if I did not share it with each of you. Bishop Long said that the individuals who truly succeed in life are not the ones who are dealt a good hand, but the ones who truly succeed are those who play a bad hand well! Life is interesting and we cannot choose what hand we are dealt but we can choose how we play our cards and more importantly how me play this game called Life! The The 26th success principle in my Achieve Your Dreams Book represents a choice to play our hands well. This is a choice to focus on our goals and to change our mentality to succeed. A poem that illuminated this choice is an amazing work by Rudyard Kipling entitled IF.

IFIf you can keep your head when all about youAre losing theirs and blaming it on you,If you can trust yourself when all men doubt youBut make allowance for their doubting too,If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,Or being hated, don't give way to hating,And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:If you can dream--and not make dreams your master,If you can think--and not make thoughts your aim;If you can meet with Triumph and DisasterAnd treat those two impostors just the same;If you can bear to hear the truth you've spokenTwisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools:

If you can make one heap of all your winningsAnd risk it all on one turn of pitch-and-toss,And lose, and start again at your beginningsAnd never breathe a word about your loss;If you can force your heart and nerve and sinewTo serve your turn long after they are gone,And so hold on when there is nothing in youExcept the Will which says to them: "Hold on!"

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,Or walk with kings--nor lose the common touch,If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you;If all men count with you, but none too much,If you can fill the unforgiving minuteWith sixty seconds' worth of distance run,Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,

And -- which is more -- you'll be a Man, my son!

Well I am indeed taking my own advice and in the rest of this newsletter edition I'll share some of my latest programs, intiatives and service offerings! Please review and remember that " A vision without action is just a dream, action without vision is merely a passing of time, but action plus vision can change the world!" Success f your ONLY option!!
