Nate's Monday Message 

Welcome to this edition of Nate's Monday Message. This week and every week we have the opportunity to surround ourselves with people we believe in and people who believe in us. This is one of the most important things you can do to better your life or your business. There will always be people that try to get into your circle and use up your precious time and energy. You must realize that you are the only one with the key that can allow them in or not.

When you come to the realization that everything you do comes at a price, you will be more inclined to use your time and energy better. Always keep in mind, that if I do this that means I cannot do that. You can only do one thing at a time. You can only spend your time once and then it is gone. Remove the negative people from your life if you can. Do not put up with people that will suck the energy right out of you. Fill your world with love and peace, happiness and joy, energy and determination. Let's Make This The Best Week Of The Year!

ENCOURAGEMENT CORNER...

It Is Up To Me

I woke up early today, excited over all I get to do before the clock strikes midnight.

I have responsibilities to fulfill today.

I am important. My job is to choose what kind of day I am going to have.

Today I can complain because the weather is rainy or I can be thankful that the grass is getting watered for free.

Today I can feel sad that I don't have more money or I can be glad that my finances encourage me to plan my purchases wisely and guide me away from waste.

Today I can grumble about my health or I can rejoice that I am alive.

Today I can lament over all that my parents didn't give me when I was growing up or I can feel grateful that they allowed me to be born.

Today I can cry because roses have thorns or I can celebrate that thorns have roses.

Today I can mourn my lack of friends or I can excitedly embark upon a quest to discover new relationships.

Today I can whine because I have to go to work or I can shout for joy because I have a job to do.

Today I can complain because I have to go to school or eagerly open my mind and fill it with rich new tidbits of knowledge.

Today I can murmur dejectedly because I have to do housework or I can feel honored because the Lord has provided shelter for my mind, body, and soul.

Today stretches ahead of me, waiting to be shaped, and I am the sculptor who gets to do the shaping.

Today, my attitude is the difference. I get to choose what kind of day I will have! It Is Up To Me.
