Nate’s Monday Morning Message 

Welcome to this week’s Monday Morning Message! All you need is a plan, a road map or in these days a smart phone with navigation, and the courage to press on to your destination. I like to call this your GPS (goals, plans and strategies). You would not jump in the car, and attempt to drive across the country without having a plan, so why is it that we go about our goals and dreams in such a manner? Your GPS also includes a support system, which is those people in your life who will rally behind you, and those who will show up in the precise moment you need them the most. This week, I challenge you to get clear, refocus, and create your own GPS. There is still time to make 2017 the best year of your life. Let’s make it a great week!

ENCOURAGEMENT CORNER

Just for Today

Just for today I will try to live through this day only, and not tackle all my problems at once. I can do something for twelve hours that would appall me if I felt that I had to keep it up for a lifetime.

Just for today I will be happy. This assumes to be true what Abraham Lincoln said, that "Most folks are as happy as they make up their minds to be."

Just for today I will adjust myself to what is, and not try to adjust everything to my own desires, I will take my "luck" as it comes, and fit myself to it.

Just for today I will try to strengthen my mind. I will study. I will learn something useful. I will not be a mental loafer. I will read something that requires effort, thought and concentration.

Just for today I will exercise my soul in three ways: I will do somebody a good turn, and not get found out; if anybody knows of it, it will not count. I will do a least two things I don't want to do--just for exercise. I will not show anyone that my feelings are hurt; they may be hurt, but today I will not show it.

Just for today I will be agreeable. I will look as well as I can, dress becomingly, keep my voice low, be courteous, criticize not one bit. I won't find fault with anything, nor try to improve or regulate anybody but myself.

Just for today I will have a program. I may not follow it exactly, but I will have it. I will save myself from two pests: hurry and indecision.

Just for today I will have a quiet half hour all by myself, and relax. During this half hour, sometime, I will try to get a better perspective of my life.

Just for today I will be unafraid. Especially I will not be afraid to enjoy what is beautiful, and to believe that as I give to the world, so the world will give to me.

WORDS OF INSPIRATION

“I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.” - Nelson Mandela

“A dream doesn't become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination and hard work.” - Colin Powell

“Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.” - Steve Jobs

“Hold fast to dreams, for if dreams die, life is a broken-winged bird that cannot fly.” - Langston Hughes

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.” - Winston Churchill
