SECRET TO SUCCESS
“People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don’t believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want,and, if they can’t find them, make them.”

Life is indeed beautiful!
I am thankful for what God has given me. Despite hardships, this life of mine seems so blessed, rich and full that I never ever ever will forget God. Even if doors close, life always gives way to new adventures and opportunities. I have to spend more time in being grateful for all what God has given me. I thank my maker for all the beauty and blessings he surround me because life is really special. It is the best attitude one can ever have for one needs to be aware of how blessed their life is. Life has its unexpected twist and turns but we all must cherish the beautiful memories of our showered blessings.

For many years, Indiana Jones chased artifacts that he believed were real but he was questioned by everybody that these artifacts never existed. They even went out of there way to stop him because they believed it was not real. Indiana Jones did not let others (naysayers) affect his plan because he believed in his heart that the stories were real. What a wonderful article about 5 life lessons from Indiana Jones..
I am about to make a decision —a change in my life…It is a difficult decision because it requires a belief, research, a plan, an alternative or and a deviation if it does not work out. However, I will pursue the dream..I will find a way to make it happen through research and an extensive plan to make it work. It is a scary feeling but but but I must move forward and go for it. Starting a business is not as easy. It requires a belief; requires study and a plan, alternative and a secondary resource just in case.
I will do everything to make my dream come true regardless what people will say. I will be like Indy.

You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may trod me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I’ll rise.
Does my sassiness upset you?
Why are you beset with gloom?
‘Cause I walk like I’ve got oil wells
Pumping in my living room.
Just like moons and like suns,
With the certainty of tides,
Just like hopes springing high,
Still I’ll rise.
Did you want to see me broken?
Bowed head and lowered eyes?
Shoulders falling down like teardrops.
Weakened by my soulful cries.
Does my haughtiness offend you?
Don’t you take it awful hard
‘Cause I laugh like I’ve got gold mines
Diggin’ in my own back yard.
You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I’ll rise.
Does my sexiness upset you?
Does it come as a surprise
That I dance like I’ve got diamonds
At the meeting of my thighs?
Out of the huts of history’s shame
Up from a past that’s rooted in pain
I’m a black ocean, leaping and wide,
Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.
Leaving behind nights of terror and fear
Into a daybreak that’s wondrously clear
Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,
I am the dream and the hope of the slave.
By Maya Angelou
Along with ‘I know why the caged bird sings’ I think this is one of Maya Angelou’s greatest poems yet. The power that it lets out when you read it, it’s just amazing! Very inspiring…
