Howard WandMy personal thanks to the many who contacted me directly via our personal contact form.  Your thoughts were very informative and appreciated. Wishing each of you the best of success for 2019.


Will 2019 be your best year ever? Here are six steps to help make it happen.

DOORS:     You will encounter many closed doors blocking your path.  Door signs will read: “Would Have”, “Could Have”, or “Should Have”.  Ignore them. The only door you are looking for reads: “MY FUTURE.” Open it and enter.

MISTAKES:    Henry Ford said: “We learn more from our mistakes than we do from our successes.” Einstein said:  “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over, and expecting a different result.”   We all make mistakes. Learn from them and gain experience.  Accept that some mistakes cannot be fixed, no matter what.

SUCCESS:    There are many simple secrets to success. None will work without the  essential ingredient, “TENACITY”.  A dogged determination to succeed at something of value regardless of the barriers before you.

BARRIERS:    Go around, over, or through them, to reach your goal. Learn from your occasional failures. Welcome obstacles as a challenge to your will to succeed. Focus on solutions not excuses, results not apologies.

LIVE:    Nobody ever said that life would be easy or that life would be fair. Life is yours to live, to error, to forgive, and be whatever you decide to be. Live it with honor and die proudly.

JOURNEY:    Life is an incredible journey.  Have a planned destination and road map. Make the journey as equally important as the destination.  Enjoy your journey while appreciating friends and family along the way.

What are  your thoughts??

    Children today are more self centered and wondering what they will get rather than what they will give.

    Howard -good solid stuff- created a mindful of “awareness”- reminds me a little of Golf- when things seem to be going wrong sometimes it means going back to basics- grip/swing/slow speed- the first “muscle memory/ habits- if you will that got me back on track!
