Chapter 4, Page 9, Book 11

Make the most of yourself, for that is all there is of you.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

SUPER SATURDAY! - Be all that you can be!

Don't settle for anything but the best. In your mind, your heart, your attitudes, and your behavior you can be all that you are capable of being

You’re at your most powerful if you focus on one thing at a time. If you have 10 goals, you’ll spread your focus thinly. But if you have one goal, you’ll be able to focus you energy and attention completely on that one goal.

Action is everything. Take action today to make your goal come true. Tomorrow, take another action. In fact, take one action toward your one goal every day, first thing in the day, and make it the most important thing you do every day.

When we have too much going on in our lives, it overwhelms us. It spreads us thin. It makes us ineffective. Simplifying things helps keep us sane, and makes us more powerful.

Making the most of our life means doing our best in everything we do. If we work at our jobs with interest, using out best skills and energy, we are putting all we can into it. That includes cherishing the people around us. One priority in my life is pending time with loved ones, connecting with them is one thing that is essential to making my life the best it can be.

The old saying, that what we offer others comes back to us is true.The most important way to live life well is to treasure the family and respect friends.

LENTEN TIP FOR TODAY: Fast from selling yourself short today.

I do hope your Saturday is a SUPER one...Be the best that you can be!

'On Ya'-ma

You are always so wise!! =)

Have a wonderful weekend!!


This is excellent advice. Sometimes if you try to do too much, you end up getting little accomplished. I focused on one goal today and got it done early, so I have the rest of the day to just relax. Hope you have a terrific weekend.

I like the advice Ma to focus on one thing at a time; it seems nowadays there is so much going on it is hard to focus on anything, but setting one goal and working towards it, and then another after that, etc is very wise indeed!!

Have a great Saturday!
