Goal Quote – Nov. 4, 2013

“Never neglect the little things. Never skimp on that extra effort, that additional few minutes, that soft word of praise or thanks, that delivery of the very best that you can do. It does not matter what others think, it is of prime importance, however, what you think about you. You can never do your best, which should always be your trademark, if you are cutting corners and shirking responsibilities. You are special. Act it. Never neglect the little things.” 
—Og Mandino

Goal Quote – Oct. 28, 2013

“Welcome every morning with a smile. Look on the new day as another special gift from your Creator, another golden opportunity to complete what you were unable to finish yesterday. Be a self-starter. Let your first hour set the theme of success and positive action that is certain to echo through your entire day. Today will never happen again. Don’t waste it with a false start or no start at all. You were not born to fail.” 
—Og Mandino

Goal Achievement Quote – Oct. 17, 2013

“I will greet this day with love in my heart. For this is the greatest secret of success in all ventures. Muscles can split a shield and even destroy life itself but only the unseen power of love can open the hearts of man. And until I master this act I will remain no more than a peddler in the marketplace.”
—Og Mandino

Sadness

In times of immense and senseless tragedy we are appalled at what mankind is capable of doing to others. We feel vulnerable, sad, angry, helpless. We can offer our condolences, prayers, and assistance, but we cannot eliminate the pain. This we must all endure.

For the future, however, we can re-commit ourselves to kindness, tolerance, and compassion towards all, so that atrocities which lie ahead of us might hopefully be fewer and less painful. We can take a more active role in looking out for one another, in supporting and helping one another. We can know that regardless of future events, we at least made a genuine effort to foster harmony, wellness, and tranquility in our world.

My interpretation of this quote: Abundance and happiness require learning, which is personal newness. Newness requires additional insight, tolerance, challenge, and action.
