Monday Motivation:
It doesn't matter who you are, it doesn't matter how great the odds stacked against you, because if you have an indomitable will to succeed, a positive attitude, a never-quit disposition, and the ability to work hard at implementing proven systems, you can lose 100 pounds or build a $100K per year income.

The next time you're having a bad day, cure your thoughts with gratitude. Write down what you are grateful for in your life. You'll find that it's often the little things that we take for granted and the relationships with others in our lives that bring the biggest smiles to our faces. As the old saying goes, "Always be thankful for what you do have, even if it's not ALL that you want to have."
