Welcome to my blog!

I hope you will be enlightened and encouraged when you come to my page. It is my goal to always keep a good attitude and have it be contagious. Of course, life isn't always a bowl of cherries but hey, we can try to keep it sweet!

I am determined!

"I am still determined to be cheerful and happy, in whatever situation I may be; for I have also learned from experience that the greater part of our happiness or misery depends upon our dispositions, and not upon our circumstances."
- Martha Washington

Personal and Professional Development

Wow!  June literally came and went right before my eyes.  June was a very busy but productive month for me and my business.  That's the way I like it!!

As I sit here today, July 2nd, thinking about the last couple of months I can honestly say I have an awesome life.  My business is growing at a good pace that I'm really happy with and my family is doing so well.  I have learned that even with the curve balls that life throws at me,  I can still be happy.  Of course, there will always be adversities and interruptions but I've been doing this (work, parenting, wife) long enough to NOT let them throw me off and.

I have been able to work on some personal development and some professional development.  Most people don't realize that working on personal development can make a huge difference in all their relationships.  I know I never thought to work on personal development before I started working my business.  I have learned so much and because of what I have learned, not only has my business been doing well, my marriage has been wonderful and so has my relationships with my teenagers.  If you have teenagers you know how hard it can be to deal with them sometimes.

On my facebook wall I post positive quotes daily.  I post anything that has to do with working on my attitude to relationships to success.  I believe what I post and I try my darnest to live by it.  Believe it or not, I have had someone tell me that my positive attitude makes them sick!!  For the most part I have people telling me I'm very encouraging.  I want to be encouraging and uplifting.  I want my attitude to be contagious to my friends, acquaintences and my family!  I'm in control of my joy and happiness.  I choose to be happy.  That's is one reason I work on personal development.

Here are some of the leaders I follow and learn from...
God (Bible)
Gary Ryan Blair
Robin Sharma
Brian Tracy
Keith Harrel
Dave Carnegie
John C. Maxwell

I encourage all my readers to work on their personal development.  Don't know where to start?  Google Personal Development and start there.  I promise it will make a positive difference in your life!
