Smile

The Climb

Smile often.

Laugh even more.

Try always.

A win is always linked to a try.  A loss is just the cost of learning something new.  And, a mistake only takes place if it’s the second time you’ve done it. One step on the ladder, no matter how small, is a Win.  Reaching the top is nothing compared to staying there. You can only go higher if you bring everyone else along. If you rise on the backs of others, they are actually the winners. If you push a person up the ladder of success, you are winning…   … and you’re doing it wrong.

It is easier to lead than you have ever imagined. Don’t believe me? Just try pushing a rope.

Leaders are those who believe it is possible. Leading others starts with belief. Starting each attempt you have with belief. Then take each ending, looking for the next beginning…   …With BELIEF.

The food of the soul is laughter.

Love always starts with self. Don’t worry about the faults of others, start with the person in the mirror. If you can’t tell the difference between work and fun, you’re doing it right. The trip to moving in a positive direction is to move. Plans are maps you follow in your life.

JOY is a three-letter word.

HOPE is a four-letter word.

FAITH is a five – letter word.

BELIEF is a six – letter word.

 We can continue to count all day or, we can put them into action.

A retired Air Force Master Sergeant, Mike used to lay in bed at night and worry about what would happen if his plant closed or found himself without a job. One day his plant closed. Rather than panic and hysteria (OK, maybe a little) Mike found himself carried away on the adventure of his life. Mike started with the best job he ever had working at Home Depot. He spent 8 years working with job seekers at a local workforce center, helping them to find employment. He then started his own company developing courses, writing books and urging others to follow their own paths into the future. Mike holds a Master of Arts in Adult Education and Training and a Bachelor of Business Management, earned through the University of Phoenix and an AAS degree in Electronics Systems Technology from the Community College of the Air Force. Mike is a member of the Delta Mu Delta Business Honor Society.
