The first step to a life full of wonders is to
see that your outside world begins with your inside world and every

a perfect life. Your thoughts can create magic and every thing you have
ever wanted. Today’s thoughts build tomorrow’s dreams.
Picture yourself in your mind’s eye as you hope to be, having all
you ever dreamed of having. Make a “Dream List” of everything you
desire in your lifetime.

sow a character, reap a destiny!”
Remember this ancient truth: you can accomplish anything in
your life with the right knowledge.
You must learn their
habits, read the books they read, study their diets and learn their
philosophies and strategies.
Just as a runner gets a second wind on a
long run, your mind will get a second wind if you exert your discipline
muscles and stick with the job you are doing. It will not be easy at first.
But you must be strong and not seek to escape the task you may be
