“You Are Valuable, Equipped, Anointed, and Approved!”


“There are plenty of others willing to call you a failure.  A fool.  A loser.  A hopeless souse!  Don’t you ever say it of yourself.  You send out the wrong signal.  That is what people pick up.  Do you understand?  If you care about something fight for it.  You hit a wall, push through it.  There’s something you need to know about failure, Tintin:  You can never let it defeat you.”   (Captain Haddock, The Adventures of Tintin)



“It doesn’t make any difference whether what you face is something that affects your work, your personal relationships, your sense of security, your appraisal of self-worth, or your appearance — the way you think about your situation largely determines whether you will do anything about it and what you will do.”   (Dr. Arthur Freeman and Rose DeWolf)



“A small trouble is like a pebble.  Hold it too close to your eye and it fills the whole world and puts everything out of focus.  Hold it at a proper distance and it can be examined and properly classified.  Throw it at your feet and it can be seen in its true setting, just one more tiny bump on the pathway of life.”   (Celia Luce)



“The trouble with many plans is that they are based on the way things are now. To be successful, your personal plan must focus on what you want, not what you have.”   (Nido Qubein)



“‘What is the world’s greatest lie?’ the little boy asks.

The old man replies, ‘It’s this:  that at a certain point in our lives, we lose control of what’s happening to us, and our lives become controlled by fate.  That’s the world’s greatest lie.’”  (Paulo Coelho)



“If you keep focusing on your flaws, listening to what other people are saying, you can miss your destiny.  Instead, remind yourself that you are valuable, you are equipped, you are anointed, you are approved!”   (Joel Osteen)
