Attractive conversation draws people to you. It creates an environment for growth, hope and encouragement. And that is what every one of us needs today. So when you speak today, let your conversation be gracious and attractive. I believe that you will not only hear some amazing things coming out of your mouth, you will hear others being nicer as well.
“All I'm saying is simply this, that all life is interrelated, that somehow we're caught in an inescapable network of mutuality tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly affects all indirectly. For some strange reason, I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be. You can never be what you ought to be until I am what I ought to be. This is the interrelated structure of reality." —Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Dr. King is remembere d today for so many things and the common thread seems to be the idea of all types of people coming together. Why? Because we are all connected. We live in a time where people look out for themselves and decide that if they can take care of #1, nothing else really matters. That could not be further from the truth. Perhaps my future is connected to yours. My hopes to yours. My dream may not be realized until you see you have one too.

Well here we go! Another new year has begun! What a great time to take a look at your goal list and determine if you were in your right mind when you created it at the end of last year! I'm not talking about your new year resolutions...you've probably already abandoned many of those anyway! Oftentimes, our goals fall by the wayside too because we make some mistakes when we put our goal list together. I want to share three things that work for me each and every year and I hope they may help you to not only make the right goals, but achieve them as well. 1- write them down When we write them down we create a way for us to periodically review them. Writing them down in a journal or notebook creates a way to help hold YOU accountable. You can track your progress bi-weekly or monthly too. 2- be specific and add the details Sometimes we write down things like lose weight, read more, get a hobby.
