Food for Thought

This sign is in my dining room. Well, What would you do if you knew you "could not fail?" Hmmm, that's a tough one. What is keeping you from pursueing your dreams? Time, money, family.....the list goes on.

My husband and I used to say to each other,"are you living to work or are you working to live?" What are YOU passionate about? Here is an entry from my journal from oh gosh years ago. I can't remember where I saw this to give proper credit, but I did'nt come up with it.

"The road to happiness lies in 2 simple principles: find what it is that interests you and that you can do well, and when you find it, put your soul into it-every bit of energy, ambition and natural ability that you have!" I encourage you to get a journal and just start pouring out all those ideas that are swimming around in your head & heart. Writing it down helps bring clarity. Then go to your best friends & family and get their support for your new venture. You will need it. Every new venture has ups & downs. But most of all, "Believe in yourself". I have "believe in yourself you can make a difference" and "follow your dreams, anything is possible" on my hang tags and in my catalog. I want to encourage everyone that sees my products to think about that.

Hello from SITS! I really like the sign. I tend to not do things because of my fear of failure.
