Nate’s Monday Morning Message 

Welcome to this edition of Nate's Monday Morning Message. This week and every week we have the opportunity to make the second half of 2013 even better than the first. Yes, believe it or not, half of the year is behind us. I hope that you are off to a great start and I hope you have a plan and vision for the future. Regardless of where you are in life, the best part about a Monday is the chance to make something great happen this week. Decide today!

Your life is a gift if you would only look at it in that way. You are surrounded by people that will help you and resources that you can use if you only look at it that way. You can create your own happiness and do all the things that you choose if you only look at it in that way. This week start to look at things in the way that is most helpful. You will see what your brain tells your eyes to find. Look for the good. Look for the opportunity. Look for the positive. Let's Make This The Best Week Of The Year!

ENCOURAGEMENT CORNER...

Dare to Be

When a new day begins, dare to smile gratefully.
When there is darkness, dare to be the first to shine a light.
When there is injustice, dare to be the first to condemn it.
When something seems difficult, dare to do it anyway.
When life seems to beat you down, dare to fight back.
When there seems to be no hope, dare to find some.
When you’re feeling tired, dare to keep going.
When times are tough, dare to be tougher.
When love hurts you, dare to love again.
When someone is hurting, dare to help them heal.
When another is lost, dare to help them find the way.
When a friend falls, dare to be the first to extend a hand.
When you cross paths with another, dare to make them smile.
When you feel great, dare to help someone else feel great too.
When the day has ended, dare to feel as you’ve done your best.
Dare to be the best you can –
At all times, Dare to be!”

-Steve Maraboli
