  • Believe that anything is possible.
  • Start each day with goals. Set your goals with SMART (specific, measureable, achievable, realistic, timely) standards. If you take the time to set these types of goals, you will be sucessful.
  • Buy good books and make time to read them.
  • Find the best in others. You can learn wonderful new things from the people who cross your path.
  • Join at least one organization. Connections are essential for the soul.
  • Show others the best in you. You will shine like a star if you embrace all that is available to you.
  • Most of all, make memories and have fun along the way. One day you will look back and cherish this time of your life. Make the best of it!"
