Rules to live by!
“Before you speak, listen. Before you write, think. Before you spend, earn. Before you invest, investigate. Before you criticize, wait. Before you pray, forgive. Before you quit, try. Before you retire, save. Before you die, give.” – William A. Ward
“If money is your hope for independence you will never have it. The only real security that a man will have in this world is a reserve of knowledge, experience, and ability.” - Henry Ford
“You can only become truly accomplished at something you love. Don’t make money your goal. Instead, pursue the things you love doing, and then do them so well that people can’t take their eyes off you.” - Maya Angelou
“It’s good to have money and the things that money can buy, but it’s good, too, to check up once in a while and make sure that you haven’t lost the things that money can’t buy.” -George Lorimer
“Life is not about receiving at all times; it is a combination of being thankful for what you have as blessings and sharing those blessings with others who need a little fraction of what you have.” - Catherine Pulsifer
“When you’ve been blessed.. PASS IT ON, PASS IT ON!..” – Patti LaBelle
“Leadership should be born out of the understanding of the needs of those who would be affected by it.” – Marian Anderson
Know yourself and those around you before you attempt to think of yourself as a leader.
“I’m strumming my own freedom, playing the God in me, representing His glory, hope He’s proud of me.” – Jill Scott, Golden
This has always been my favorite part of Jill Scott’s song, Golden because it reminds us that God is within all of us and whatever song of strength, love and freedom we have is unique to our own lives, hearts and circumstances. Whatever your song, play it loud and with pride and REPRESENT!
“I’ve come to believe that each of us has a personal calling that’s as unique as a fingerprint – and the best way to succeed is to discover what you love and then find a way to offer it to others in the form of service, working hard, and also allowing the energy of the universe to lead you.” - Oprah Winfrey
Enough said! Find your love, offer it to others and pass the wisdom on to all you meet.
“A wise person gets known for insight; gracious words add to one’s reputation.” – Proverbs 16:21
Greetings, again, great ones! I took a small sabbatical from blog posting and during that time I really got into studying and embracing true gratitude. So I’m back with Soul Food (hopefully every day) and I couldn’t think of a better quote to get back into the swing of things than Proverbs. Feast and enjoy!!
