Monday has arrived again.

For many of us it will be the last Monday before half term.

It’s been a long term.

Look out for others and most of all, look after yourself.

Perhaps nobody ever accomplishes all that he feels lies in him to do but nearly every one who tries his power touches the walls of his being occasionally, and learns about how far to attempt to spring.–Charles Dudley Warner (“Third Study” Backlog Studies)

image

Practice rather than preach. Make of your life an affirmation, defined by your ideals, not the negation of others. Dare to the level of your capability then go beyond to a higher level.–Alexander Haig (in Success Secrets of Super Achievers by Stovall)

image

Put yourself in a state of mind where you say to yourself, “Here is an opportunity for you to celebrate like never before, my own power, my own ability to get myself to do whatever is necessary.–Anthony Robbins

image

Real confidence comes from knowing and accepting yourself–your strengths and your limitations–in contrast to depending on affirmation from others.–Judith M. Bardwick

image

The roots of true achievement lie in the will to become the best that you can become.–Harold Taylor

The search for self-worth begins by finding what is indestructible inside, then letting it be.–Prudence Kohl
