    I'm on a tracking streak, too! Kept in calorie range for two full weeks (a biggie for me). What's yours?

    Free yourself from negative people. Spend time with nice people who are smart, driven and like-minded. Relationships should help you, not hurt you. Surround yourself with people who reflect the person you want to be. Choose friends who you are proud to know, people you admire, who love and respect you – people who make your day a little brighter simply by being in it. Life is too short to spend time with people who suck the happiness out of you. When you free yourself from negative people, you free yourself to be you – and being you is the only way to truly live.

    The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life.
    Attitude, to me is more important than facts.
    It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than success, than what other people think or say or do.
    It is more important than appearance, giftedness, or skill.
    It will make or break a company...a church...a home.
    The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day.
    We cannot change our past...we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way.
    We cannot change the inevitable.
    The only thing we can do is play on the one thing we have, and that is our attitude.
    I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it.
    And so it is with you...we are in charge of our attitudes.

    Comfort Zone
    by Anonymous

    I used to have a comfort zone where I knew I wouldn't fail.
    The same four walls and busywork were really more like jail.
    I longed so much to do the things I'd never done before,
    But stayed inside my comfort zone and paced the same old floor.

    I said it didn't matter that I wasn't doing much.
    I said I didn't care for things like commission checks and such.
    I claimed to be so busy with the things inside the zone,
    But deep inside I longed for something special of my own.

    I couldn't let my life go by just watching others win.
    I held my breath; I stepped outside and let the change begin.
    I took a step and with new strength I'd never felt before,
    I kissed my comfort zone goodbye and closed and locked the door.

    If you're in a comfort zone, afraid to venture out,
    Remember that all winners were at one time filled with doubt.
    A step or two and words of praise can make your dreams come true.
    Reach for your future with a smile; success is there for you!

    “ To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting.”
