About Me

The Person Behind the Key Board

about me

Hello, welcome to my about me page.

My name is Victor, and yes that's me & my beautiful wife Carmen in the photo.

I am a former New Yorker and now my wife and I live in beautiful Central Florida -- no more traffic jams for us.

I love quotations.

I love the fact that profound ideas and truths can be expressed in just a simple few words.

One of my first encounters with quotations came from my parents, when they would quote some passage from the Bible.





One such quote that comes to mind is "seek and ye shall find."

Another quote from my childhood is "a penny saved, is a penny earned" by Benjamin Franklin.

"It takes just as much time and energy to wish as it does to plan."

quote by Eleanor Roosevelt

Like many other people who are interested in succeeding, I started reading many, many books about people who had overcome obstacles to succeed in their chosen endeavor.

I wanted to know the "how" and the "what" of overcoming barriers to success.

I read such books as Think And Grow Rich, The Power of The Subconscious Mind, Think Big and many other books about famous, and ordinary people like you and me.

One thing they all had in common is the fact that they overcame their fears and their problems and proceeded to live a better life.

I have learned many lessons that I wish to share with anyone that is also seeking and willing to listen.

"Remember this, the choices you make in life, make you."

Before I continue telling you about me, there is something important I have to tell you.

Let me repeat something that I have said over and over again in my writings.

The library is a great source of information.

Ask your librarian to help you locate the "self-help" or "motivational section", then pick a book that is easy for you to read -- and start your journey.

"Don't find fault. Find a remedy."

I started this web site 5 years ago for two reasons:

1. Because I wanted to share some of the life lessons I have learned.

2. Because I was tired of working for someone else.

So I combined the two.

I remember telling my wife how much I wanted to do something that would give us the freedom to dictate our own hours and to travel.

Well, I made the commitment and I started searching for information on how to start a web site.

I have been truly blessed because this web site has grown over the years, and it continues to grow as I add more pages of quotes, videos and stories.

I hope I am not making this sound like a walk in the park -- because it is not.

I have put a lot of work and love in building this website.

"The big secret in life is that there is no big secret.

Whatever your goal, you can get there if you're willing to work."

-quote by Oprah Winfrey

********





But here is the interesting thing --I am very proud because I've accomplished my goal.

And so can you --Dare To Dream Big

One last quote --

********

"Ideas can be life-changing.

Sometimes all you need to open the door is just one more good idea."

quote by Jim Rohn

********

Go ahead open that door





I hope that you find inspiration and hope as you travel the pages of this web site.

I also hope that you apply what you learn and that you share with others my message of hope and empowerment.

Don’t be afraid to dream, just remember that dreaming alone will not suffice; you must take action.

If you have any questions about me, you can contact me right here

If you have been blessed, please share with us

If you want to read a little more about me and how I learned to build this website "go here"
