Making It Count

Making It Count

Force always attracts men of low morality. – Albert Einstein How does one make their life count? What does it mean when someone says “make it count”?

Dare to Dream

A dream doesn’t become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination and hard work. – Colin Powell Do you dare to dream? To make your life better and achieve something of importance?

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

The new year stands before us, like a chapter in a book, waiting to be written. We can help write that story by setting goals. — Melody Beattie As we approach 2017 we look back upon the year with amazement. There can be no other way to describe 2016.
