Bring joy with you everywhere you go.  Don’t expect it to already be there.  Be prepared to override negativity.  Be on guard against drama that tries to catch you off guard.  Don’t let people pull you into their storm.  Instead, pull them into your peace.

Personal Reflection (How is this message relevant to your life?):

Personal Reflection (How is this message relevant to your life?):
Day 35:

Always take one step at a time but always think three moves ahead… Just like a game of chess, strategizing is key.  Plan your work and work your plan.  Think strategically like a CEO but work hard like an intern.

Personal Reflection (How is this message relevant to your life?):
Day 36:

Always give without remembering and always receive without forgetting.  As we go through today and every day, let’s always be grateful for the heroes who paved the way for us.  Let’s grab their “baton” and continue their legacy of compassion, generosity, faith, love, and self-improvement.

Personal Reflection (How is this message relevant to your life?):
Day 37:

Life is like an elevator:  Sometimes, on your way up, you have to stop and let some people off.  Monitor your inner circle: If they intend to go upward, then let them ride with you.  But if they intend to go downward, then stop and let them get off your elevator.

Blessings are sent to us so that blessings can be sent through us.  We are blessed so that we can be a blessing to others.

Personal Reflection (How is this message relevant to your life?):
Day 52:

Dancing is a great metaphor for successful living because when you dance, the goal is not to rush towards a particular spot on the floor but rather, the goal is to enjoy every step of the way.  Of course, stay focused on reaching the mountaintop but, at the same time, enjoy the climb.

Personal Reflection (How is this message relevant to your life?):

Personal Reflection (How is this message relevant to your life?):
Day 57:

Ego blocks blessings.  So, as you go through today and every day, stay humble!

Personal Reflection (How is this message relevant to your life?):
Day 58:

Always replace judgment with empathy.  Even if you don’t understand why people do certain things, trust that they are doing the best they can with the resources that they have and if they knew better, they would do better.  In addition, keep in mind that you also have your own set of flaws just like they have their own set of flaws.  So, as you go through today and every day, let the forgiveness that you have received motivate you to always forgive others.

Personal Reflection (How is this message relevant to your life?):

Personal Reflection (How is this message relevant to your life?):

The past does not determine who you are.  The past prepares you for who you will become.

Personal Reflection (How is this message relevant to your life?):
Day 61:

It’s not about the length of your life, it’s about the depth.  In other words, it’s not about how many breaths you take, but rather, it’s about how many moments take your breath away.  We feel most alive whenever we use our lives in any way that makes another person’s life better.

Personal Reflection (How is this message relevant to your life?):
Day 62:

There is no competition.  We all are on the same team.  Don’t be afraid to mentor people, even people who might even up becoming your “competitors.”  It’s okay because every person you train becomes part of your legacy and, really, legacy is greater than currency.

Personal Reflection (How is this message relevant to your life?):
Day 63:

Don’t let the gifts you want make you undervalue the gifts you already have.

Personal Reflection (How is this message relevant to your life?):

Personal Reflection (How is this message relevant to your life?):
Day 65:

When you really understand how depression feels, you learn to never take happiness for granted and you become passionate about sharing happiness with others.  The awesome thing about it is that as you share your happiness with others, your happiness multiplies.  So, as you go through today and every day, look for ways to share your happiness with others and watch it multiply.

Personal Reflection (How is this message relevant to your life?):
Day 66:

Be more than a star.  Be a star-maker.  Your greatest achievement will not be in anything that you do but rather, your greatest achievement will be in what you help others to do.

Personal Reflection (How is this message relevant to your life?):
Day 67:

Either you control your thoughts… or your thoughts will control you.  The mind is a wonderful servant but a terrible master.

Personal Reflection (How is this message relevant to your life?):

Day 72:

Until you heal your past, you will continue to bleed.  The way to heal your past is to use it as a tool to bring healing to others.

Always reach up to grab the hands of those who are willing to help you and also, always reach down to grab the hands of those who need your help.

Just a reminder – Your feelings are like waves.  You can’t stop them from coming but you can choose which ones you will ride.  Choose wisely!

Personal Reflection (How is this message relevant to your life?):
Day 77:

As you go through today and for the rest of your life, always remember that true happiness is not about what is happening to you, but rather, true happiness is about what is happening inside of you.

Personal Reflection (How is this message relevant to your life?):
Day 78:

We are sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.  Let’s keep that in mind as we go through today and every day.  We have a responsibility to succeed.  We are running a relay.  We were handed a baton from the generations that came before us and we will pass on a baton to the generations that come after us.  As a wise man once said, “Legacy is greater than currency.”

Personal Reflection (How is this message relevant to your life?):
Day 79:

Failure does not exist; only lessons.  As you go through today and every day, please keep in mind that you never lose.  You either win or you learn.  Always remember this – You are not fighting for a position of success.  You are fighting in a position of success.

Personal Reflection (How is this message relevant to your life?):
Day 80:

The best way to reach up (and stay up) is to reach out to help other people.  The secret to living is giving.  People who refresh others always stay refreshed.  That’s why the gift of giving is better than a gift received.

Personal Reflection (How is this message relevant to your life?):
