Do You Have Faith?

When you have come to the edge
Of all the light you know,

And are about to step off
Into the darkness of the unknown,

Faith is knowing
One of two things will happen:

There will be something solid to stand on,
Or you will be taught how to fly.

– Anonymous Poet*

Do you believe you have a solid foundation or the wings to fly?

Mark McKeon On Happiness v. Satisfaction

Always be happy, never be satisfied – Mark McKeon, author and speaker

Are you happy? Do you make time to celebrate? Do you take care of yourself?

Are you striving? If you were to update your bio or resume, do you have something new to add? Do you do your best work?

You can be happy and still strive for more.  It’s a challenging balance, but that’s the fun.

Leo Tolstoy On Tiny Changes

True life is lived when tiny changes occur – Leo Tolstoy

What is one positive change you can implement right now – eat one piece of fruit each day, get fresh flowers for your desk, take your lunch break outdoors?

You don’t have to quit your job. You don’t have to spend lots of money. You don’t have to plan too much.

What’s the tiniest step you can take?
