Luck always embraces Hard Work

Some people earn millions for doing nothing but I find that people who have a good job they enjoy, a happy home are the lucky ones.

Anything that's worth it is always hard work.....let's teach that to our children. Unfortunately, there are many people who feel that they are entitled and things should come easy!

Thomas Jefferson's words of wisdom!


We can't help everyone, but everyone can help someone. —Ronald Reagan
Men succeed when they realize that their failures are the preparation for their victories. —Ralph Waldo Emerson
A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. —Albert Einstein
Dedication involves making the space to let young ideas take hold; every tree was once a seed and every company was once an idea. —Zephyr Bloch-Jorgensen
Watch the sunrise at least once a year, put a lot of marshmallows in your hot chocolate, lie on your back and look at the stars, never buy a coffee table you can't put your feet on, never pass up a chance to jump on a trampoline, don't overlook life's small joys while searching for the big ones. —H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
A river cuts through rock, not because of its power, but because of its persistence. —James N. Watkins
When we have peace in our hearts and minds, we draw peace into our lives.
 —Iyanla Vanzant
Begin at once to live, and count each separate day as a separate life. —Seneca
Before you can live a part of you has to die. You have to let go of what could have been, how you should have acted and what you wish you would have said differently. You have to accept that you can’t change the past experiences, opinions of others at that moment in time or outcomes from their choices or yours. When you finally recognize that truth, then you will understand the true meaning of forgiveness of yourself and others. From this point you will finally be free. —Shannon L. Alder
Kindness is... anything that lifts another person. —C. Neil Strait
Do the things you used to talk about doing but never did. Know when to let go and when to hold on tight. Stop rushing. Don't be intimidated to say it like it is. Stop apologizing all the time. Learn to say no, so your yes has some oomph. Spend time with the friends who lift you up, and cut loose the ones who bring you down. Stop giving your power away. Be more concerned with being interested than being interesting. Be old enough to appreciate your freedom, and young enough to enjoy it. Finally, know who you are. —Kristin Armstrong
I think your whole life shows in your face and you should be proud of that. —Lauren Bacall
When there is teamwork and collaboration, wonderful things can be achieved. —Mattie Stepanek
A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely. —Roald Dahl
If you don't know the guy on the other side of the world, love him anyway because he's just like you. He has the same dreams, the same hopes and fears. It's one world, pal. We're all neighbors.
 —Frank Sinatra
I know the price of success: dedication, hard work, and an unremitting devotion to the things you want to see happen.  —Frank Lloyd Wright
