The hardest thing in the world to understand is the income tax.
— Albert Einstein
Thank goodness for my Mary Kay tax accountant!
Blessings in abundance to ALL pink ladies today!
Where will you be a year from now? Where would you most like to be?
There is so much you’ve learned and experienced on your journey to this day. Imagine what you can now do with it all.
This new year is a grand opportunity, filled with promise and possibilities. Choose now the very best of those possibilities, and know that you have the power to bring them to life.
You will spend this coming year moving in one direction or another. Commit now to making that direction the one that will take you toward what you sincerely desire.
Life in each moment is influenced by your presence and participation. As this new year unfolds, continue to make that influence a positive and fulfilling one.
Consider today where you would like to be a year from now. For now is the beginning of the year in which you can truly make it happen.
— Ralph Marston

I am part of the Fellowship of Excellence. I have stepped over the line. The decision has been made. I won’t give up, shut up, let up until I have stayed up, stored up, paid up and prayed up. I won’t look back, let up, slow down, back away or be still.
This is my newly acquired slogan. Like it? Personally, it intrigues me.
I, like many others, often need a nudge to wrap up, finish up, or move things right along. From the incomplete to the complete. From the almost done to the done, From the desk to the appropriate location in the file cabinet (I like paper trails). From the thought of doing the work to the action exhibited to make it a done deal. More importantly, I wanted to adopt a slogan that would steady my pace of IPA’s (Income Producing Activities) on a daily basis. I want to face the positives as well as the setbacks and roadblocks upfront with a positive line of thinking. As my New Mary Kay Year has taken off, I want to ‘bust-a-move’ to make my new year goals become a reality! It’s MY YEAR to shine!!
Does the wording, “out of the strain” bother anyone? Does it seem to have a negative connotation in a way? I thought so at first and then I began to think about it differently. I felt like the intended strain of the matter was the stretching I will (am) doing on a daily basis to reach my intended goals. Still, the word strain might be a slight odd for some to think about. I have chosen to analogize it as the stretch to get me “into the peace of the done”.
“I believe the single most significant decision I can make on a day-to-day basis is my choice of attitude. It is more important than my past, my education, my bankroll, my successes or failures, fame or pain, what other people think of me or say about me, my circumstances, or my position. Attitude keeps me going or cripples my progress. It alone fuels my fire or assaults my hope. When my attitudes are right, there is no barrier too high, no valley too deep, no dream too extreme, no challenge too great for me.”
Positive Attitude, it changes everything, wouldn’t you agree? Continue reading
