Limitless possibilities exist in your life. You truly have no limits except those you put on yourself.
Do you know what a successful life looks like? Not for me or someone else, but for you. What does a good life look like for you? Each of us is different. We must each determine what we want in life in order to find true happiness. Although we might share some ideas with others, our life is and should always be unique.
Do you say or think things like this:
I hate getting up in the cold or dark!
I can’t stand (fill in the blank)

Attitude Determines Destiny is not only the title of my book, but it’s reality! Attitude is everything! If we want to make positive changes, we must take action. Some advice will not make sense at first or may not seem to bear fruit for a long time, but if we want change, we will follow it anyway. Consider the following example…
Insecurity is the opposite of inspiration and certainly doesn’t lead to much self-confidence.

Do you have any idea what your potential might be?
I would say that no one knows his or her true potential because it’s limitless. It’s fun to learn about our potential. This is one of the reasons why I recommend that we set goals. Our periodic review of our goals will show us our progress toward realizing our potential.
One of the greatest motivators in my life has been faith that what I’m doing is God’s will for me.
This may sound strange to you, but when I was a child of about five, God spoke to me and told me that I was to be a teacher. As an Adult, when I was a professor, every day that I went into class, I remembered that this was what God wanted me to do.
