“Excuses are easy.  Saying ‘yes’ and then executing is hard.” –Sara Blakely

“Have you quit on yourself?  It’s that time of year when most folks give up on their New Year’s resolutions.  According to a survey from the University of Scranton, after one month, 46% of people have already quit working on their resolutions. 

And among the top resolutions is to start exercising.  I want you to walk.  Walking is easy, free, and just about anyone can do it.  Even better… walking helps you live longer.  A brand-new study from the U.K. showed that substituting 30 minutes of light activity, such as walking, for 30 minutes of screen time, cut risk of early mortality.

If you feel like you’re in a slump or have a problem with the blues, get out and get walking.” -Dr. David Eifrig

The risk of easy money is the same for rich and poor alike: instead of learning to give, they learn only how to take.” -Bill Bonner

It is easy to be poor, no matter how much money one makes.  What most don’t realize, the inverse is just as true; it’s hard to be wealthy no matter how much money one makes.  Why?  There seems to be a natural reflex to spend according to what is earned.  Anyone who can overcome this reflex has overcome one of the greatest temptations of life.
