Sometimes you find yourself in the middle of nowhere, and sometimes in the middle of nowhere you find yourself.


Sometimes a change of perspective is all it takes to see the light.  Dan Brown


Are you losing motivation every day?  Dig deeper and find your inspiration. It will make a world of difference.


What words are you using when you talk to yourself and others?


Adversity causes some people to break; Others to break records.

-William Arthur Ward
