—Earl Nightingale

How do you view July?  As the end of the 2nd Quarter, the end of the first half of the year with only six months left to accomplish the goals you set for yourself at the beginning on the year?

The interesting thing about mindset though, is that your beliefs can be adjusted or re-programmed.  Continue reading
