some good advice from an article

Be your own advocate. If you have a dream, you must be its primary cheerleader. While the support of others is helpful, appreciated, and sought after, you must first believe in your goal and then encourage others to follow.

If you're feeling apprehensive or unsure of your strengths and capabilities, then others will feed off of your negative self-thought. Do what you can to reassure yourself that you are talented, worthy, and have something of value to create and share. Once you believe this, you'll do more than convince others of your dream, you'll be able to help family, friends, and peers recognize the same heart and strength in themselves. Encourage yourself and feed others with your positive spirit and energy. Because everyone has greatness within them, but first they must believe.

Judy. I really like Les Brown's motivation articles. One of his phrases also:"If you're tired of geting what you're getting, you got to change what you are doing"". (paraphrase)

One that I recently read from Tony Robbins: "Stay committed to your decision but stay flexible in your approach."

Good stuff!

Judy, just one more.

A Hero is an individual who finds strength to perservere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles.

Christopher Reeve (reading that it was Christopher Reeve who wrote this made it even more powerful and meaningful to me.....WOW)
