THIS WEEK’S REVIEW:  “THE VISION:  Telling Kids That They Can Make the World a Better Place”

Ava Thrower of Detroit, Michigan, says “Excellent tool for school systems/teachers/parents to use to instill in our children (5th – 8th graders) the importance of getting a good education!!! This book includes a great short play that reminds students that there was once a time in American history when it was against the law for everyone to learn how to read and write. It’s a travesty today that so many young people are dropping out of school and not fulfilling their true destiny just because they believe that being smart is wack. This book gives children the tools to set goals to do better not only at school, but at home in order to make themselves and this world a better place.”

MOTHER’S DOZEN:  An Easy Recipe for Raising GREAT Kids!

A Wonderful Message from Les Brown

Do you have habits that hold you back from living into your greatness?

It may be as simple as biting your nails, buying expensive lattes every day or as significant as procrastinating, overeating or smoking.

No matter what habits you have, here’s one thing that can help eliminate bad habits for good.

Think about WHY you should stop.

You’ve probably heard time and time again that when your “why” is big enough,
you’ll find the “how’s.”

A few years ago I was fighting with some health challenges that forced me to change my diet.

Although I knew some of the foods I was eating weren’t good for me, they were never “life-threatening”…or so I thought.

I had to face a stark reality that if I kept doing what I was doing…I wouldn’t
be doing it much longer.

That was a huge “why” if I ever needed one.

And my “how’s” became very apparent.

And here I am, at a youthful 66 years young still spreading my message across
the world.

Maybe the habits you’re trying to overcome aren’t life threatening…maybe they are, but I want to ask you to dig deep inside yourself and find the bigger “why” to
change that habit.

What is your “why”?

Is it your children?  Your spouse?  Your health?  Your spouse’s health?  Your life?

Find that “why” and the “how’s” will take care of themselves.

To Your Greatness,




NOTE FROM JOYCEIf this piece did something for you, send the link to others.  Thanks!!
