Start Over

Start Over

If you've started out in pursuit of your goal and you've really tried with your heart and soul, but somehow things got out of control – START OVER

When you've tried your best to do what you should and you thought this time that you surely would, but once again, you didn't do well – START OVER

When you've worked so hard to follow a dieter's way and you fought to win a victory each day, but one more time you went astray – START OVER

When the road to success seemed much too long and each temptation was oh so strong and once again you gave in to wrong – START OVER

When you've told your friends what you planned to do, trusted them to help you through, and soon discovered it's up to you – START OVER

When you know you must be physically fit but your hope seems gone and you're stuck in a pit. That's not the time for you to quit – START OVER

When the week seems long and successes few and at weigh in time your feeling blue, remember tomorrow is just for you – START OVER

To start again means a victory's been won and starting over AGAIN means a race well won and starting over AGAIN proves it can be done, so don't just sit there – START OVER!!

Celebrate Success!

Things you can do to Stay Upbeat in Down Times

Celebrate Success!

It is easy to become engrossed in our news statistics – employment is terrible, the economy is in the tank, and no one is spending money on anything.

These statements are simply not true. I have been in the sales and marketing field for over 27 years and even though this year is a slow year, people are still buying! Every time, I made a sale this year, I smiled! Every time, someone signed a contract with me, I smiled! Every time I received a check from an event I planned, I smiled!

Now is the time to relish in the little victories and be grateful that some companies have money and…are willing to spend it. Assume that the individual you call on tomorrow is that person. Even if they say no today, you may have started a great relationship that will eventually lead to yes.

Smile and celebrate the little wins because if you work hard on the little wins, the big wins will follow.
