Chapter 8, Page 16, Book 21



Never underestimate the power of dreams and the influence of the human spirit.  We are all the same in this notion:  The potential for greatness lives within each of us.

Wilma Rudolph

August 16th-It’s Monday again and it’s OK.



Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring all of which we have the potential to turn a life around.

Leo Buscaglia

Monday  is  a day to see the opportunity in everything you’ve left undone Take hold of that opportunity with a renewed sense of energy and purposeful passion. Think of all you’ve ever cared about and let it remind you how much you still do care.  In that feeling is your potential, and in this moment is your chance to do something about it.

Feel your untapped potential.  Feel it so deeply you cannot avoid working to fulfill that potential.  Find great value in the good things you’ve done.  Find even more value in all the good you gave not yet brought yourself to do.


Be inspired by your successes.  Be even more inspired by your failure. A failure only means another chance to try again.

We all have untapped potential!



One isn’t necessarily born with courage, but one is born with potential.  Without courage, we cannot practice any other virtue with consistency.  We can’t be kind, true, merciful generous, or honest.

Maya Angelou

We all have the potential to do more than we we think we can.

Well, I started my day with energy and passion ... then I ate so much (at Bible study), now I feel like a slug. LOL.
The good Lord willing, tomorrow's another day!
