WOW 4U Motivation for Your Week of November 24th, 2008
Inspirational Words of Wisdom

QUOTE of the WEEK:
"Once we discover how to appreciate the timeless values in our daily experiences, we can enjoy the best things in life."
Harry Hepner

Affection Never Was Wasted
By Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Talk not of wasted affection!
affection never was wasted;
If it enrich not the heart of another,
It's waters returning back to
their springs,
like the rain shall fill them full of refreshment
That which the fountain sends
forth returns again to the fountain.

"The word 'appreciation' means to be thankful and express admiration, approval, or gratitude. It also means to grow or appreciate in value. As you appreciate life, you become more valuable—both to yourself and others."
Sara Paddison
"Appreciation can make a day - even change a life. Your willingness to put it into words is all that is necessary."
Margaret Cousins
"We must be willing to fail and to appreciate the truth that often life is not a problem to be solved, but a mystery to be lived."
M. Scott Peck
"There has never been another you. With no effort on your part you were born to be something very special and set apart. What you are going to do in appreciation of that gift is a decision only you can make."
Dan Zadra
"One can never pay in gratitude: one can only pay 'in kind' somewhere else in life."
Anne Morrow Lindbergh
"Reflect upon your present blessings, of which every man has plenty; not on your past misfortunes of which all men have some."
Charles Dickens

Motivation & Inspiration from The Daily Motivator®
Why you must

If you wish to get something done, stop telling yourself why you can't. Begin telling yourself why you must. Of course there are obstacles to every achievement. Yet you can work through any obstacle when you have a clear and compelling reason to do so.
Zero in on that reason. Make it your priority to keep that reason ever present in your thoughts.
Though the challenges may be powerful, you can always make your purpose even more powerful. Keep telling yourself, again and again, why you must.
Make a solid connection between your actions and your purpose. That will cause your effectiveness to soar.
Remember always why you must. And you will.

Sometimes death is not as tragic as not knowing how to live. This man knew how to live--and how to make others glad they were living. - Jack Benny at Nat King Cole's funeral
