Company: Option vs. Necessity

“Someone told me the other day that he felt bad for single people because they are lonely all the time. I told him that’s not true; I’m single and I don’t feel lonely. I take myself out to eat, I buy myself clothes. I have great times by myself. Once you know how to take care of yourself, company becomes an option and not a necessity.”
~ Keanu Reeves

Positive or Negative, Words Control Our Lives

“Words dominate us. Whether positive or negative, words control our lives. This is why we must be extremely careful to guard our tongues, especially when bad thoughts come to mind. Thoughts that are never spoken or acted upon will die unborn. It’s not until we give a thought voice and act on it that Satan has an open door into our lives.”

~ Dwayne Douglas Johnson,
a.k.a. The Rock,
Professional Wrestler, Actor, Author

Never Be an Imitator of Another

No one is better than you at being you. We all have something unique to give.
Do not compare yourself with anyone else. Dare to maintain your uniqueness and divine originality.
Set the standard, be an example, raise the bar—when you do, you give others permission to do the same.”
~ Dr. Cindy Trimm,
Author & Executive Life Coach
