Default Words to live by.....

1. Come to terms with your past. What has stopped you from living up to your potential? What are the things you wish you could be doing but you’re not doing right now because of your past?

2. Dig for the diamond within. What skills, gifts and experiences do you have that you can use right away in order to grow spiritually, professionally and personally? What do you do with such passion that you can do it without monetary return? How do you spend your days? When the day is over, is there something about which you can say, “I am looking forward to tomorrow to do it over again?"

3. Time out! Get to a quiet place and ask yourself what really matters in your life. What's worth devoting your time, efforts and resources?

4. Develop a road map. Set goals that are clear, attainable, measurable and have time considerations. Set goals that can get you to dig and use the "diamond in your backyard."

5. Recruit helpers. Share your goals with those people who believe in you and will encourage you to dig your "diamond" even when they can't see your "tools." The key is to look and listen to what they are saying and ask lots of questions.

6. Be honest. There is unimaginable power in being honest with oneself. It's honesty that leads you to humble yourself and be teachable by others.

7. Be patient. There is no drive-through to personal success. Dig and dig…it is the digging process that makes the rewards enjoyable.

8. Have faith. Believing what eyes can't see maintains your determination to dig deeper and wider until the diamond is brought to the surface.

9. Just don’t quit. Period!
