Some Words To Think About

The Empowering Quotations web site is here to help you expand your knowledge, to motivate you, and to empower you.

One of the fundamental principles that we teach, is to learn from what others have already said and done.

We sincerely believe that words have power. Words have the power to persuade, to encourage, to make you laugh, and to make your cry.

As this year quickly approaches its end, we ask that you consider the words we have reprinted below and think about the changes you need to make this coming year to stay motivated and on track.

Remember that you have the ability to reach any goal you set your mind to -- as long as you are willing to empower yourself and take the necessary steps to complete your journey.

*******

When one door of happiness closes,

another one opens;

But often we look so long at the closed door

we do not see the one that has been opened for us.

quote by Helen Keller.

*******

It is hard to fail;

but it is worse never to have tried to succeed.

quote by Theodore Roosevelt

************

If you believe in yourself and have the courage,

the determination, the dedication, the competitive drive

and if you are willing to sacrifice the little things in life

and pay the price for the things that are worthwhile,

it can be done.

quotes by Vince Lombardi

*************

Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions.

Small people always do that,

but the really great make you feel

that you, too, can become great.

quote by Mark Twain

**************

1 If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love,

I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.

2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge,

and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.

3 If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames,

but have not love, I gain nothing.

1 Corinthians 13:1-3

*************

To strike the chains of a slave is noble.

To leave him the captive of the color of his skin is hypocrisy.

While we in America have freed the slave of his chains,

we have not freed his heirs of their color.

Until justice is blind to color, until education is unaware of race,

until opportunity ceases to squint its eyes at pigmentation of human complexions,

emancipation will be a proclamation –but it will not be a fact….

Lyndon B. Johnson

Address at Wayne State Univ. Jan. 6, 1963

************

Set you sight on big goals, than prepare yourself for your journey. Just take one step after the other, rest when you must, but never give up.

Set your own pace and keep walking.

Until tomorrow remember to -

Dare To Dream Big

But take action

Today We Celebrate Christmas Eve

This evening is a very special time for many people around the world.

Many will celebrate it as a holiday, while many more will remember the real meaning of Christmas.

We ask that each and everyone one of you stop to reflect on your life and gives thanks for all that you have. Please focus on how you have been blessed, and not on what you are lacking.

Remember that there are so many millions of people around the world who have little or nothing at all.

So be thankful -- You may not consider what you have as much but.... Just remember that there is always someone in a worst situation than you.

And the important thing to have in mind is -- that you are not comparing what you have with others, but rather that you are just being thankful that you have it.

xxxxxxxx

With men it is impossible;

but to God all things are possible.

Matthew 19:26

xxxxxxxx

May each and every single one of you be blessed beyond your wildest imagination -- so that you in turn, may bless and motivate others.

Have you been blessed? Would you like to share your story with the world? Reach out to others --- you never know what a difference you might make to someone else

You never know how someone else might be motivated by your story.

Until tomorrow, keeping walking

Dare To Dream Big

Merry Christmas To All

Trust in the Lord with all your heart,

and lean not on your own understanding.

In all your ways acknowledge Him and

He shall direct your paths.

Proverbs 3:5-6

Please enjoy your time with family and friends, remembering to say a prayer for all the people in the world who have not been as blessed as you.

Until tomorrow, remember to be thankful

Dare To Dream Big

Stay motivated, stay inspired.xxxxxxxxxxx

As The New Year Approaches

During the holiday season as we reconnect with family and friends, let's remember to stay committed to the changes we want to make in our lives.

Enjoy the time you spend with family and friends -- commit to stay in touch -- commit to listen to each other more often, and commit to share what you have learned with others.

Be thankful for all that you have and are about to receive. Share whatever you can with those that have need, and encourage (& motivate) those that need encouragement.

A very large component of "the empowerment process" is understanding that giving back by helping others is essential.

Simplify your life and remember choose who you spend time with wisely

A simple quote with a strong message.

Countdown To The New Year

The older we get the faster time seems to fly by. Once it is gone -- it is gone for good.

Something else to consider --each and every one of us has an allotted amount of time on this earth.

So the question I want you to consider, as the new year approaches, is ---

How effectively are you using your allotted time? Any minutes wasted are gone forever.

Have you put off doing something that you know needs to get done? Have you neglected to tell someone you are sorry?

Have you been meaning to call or visit someone?Have you neglected to tell someone "I miss your" or "I love You" --

Why are you still waiting?

Don't let the fear of the time

it will take to accomplish something stand in the way of you doing it.

The time will pass anyway; we might just as well

put that passing time to the best possible use.

quote by Earl Nightingale

***********

There are those of us who are always about to live.

We are waiting until things change,

until there is more time, until we are less tired,

until we get a promotion, until we settle down

-- until, until, until.

It always seems as if there is some major event

that must occur in our lives before we begin living.

quote by George Sheehan

**********

As you prepare to celebrate the new year, remember to stay focused on the goals that you have set.

As long as you continue to learn -- you never really fail--- what others may consider failure ---

- you should consider a learning experience, which will give you another "experience building block" which you can add to your toolbox.

Do not allow little setbacks to end your journey --simply take a detour and keep going.

Until tomorrow, keep walking

Do you agree or disagree? Let's hear what you have to say.

Reflect on your blessings of which every person has many,

not on your past misfortunes,

of which all people have some.

quote by Charles Dickens

The Time Will Pass Quickly - So Use It Wisely

Wishing a happy and safe New Year wish to all.

As you embark on your journey in this new year remember the lessons you learned in 2009. Your life consists of making choices and taking action.

Whether you make the right choices and take the proper action is entirely up to you.

Part of the process of making choices is by reflecting on what we have done in the pass.

I ask that you start your new year by focusing on all the blessings you have received --- and not on what you lack.

This thought process will keep you motivated and it will propel you in a positive direction.

Remember the words of Charles Dickens:

"Reflect on your blessings of which every person has many,

not on your past misfortunes,

of which all people have some."

And the words of Pope John XXIII

"Consult not your fears but your hopes and your dreams.

Think not about your frustrations,

but about your unfulfilled potential.

Concern yourself not with what you tried and failed in,

but with what it is still possible for you to do."

You have the power to change your life if you summons the courage to make the changes you know need to be made.

Remember the words of Woodrow Wilson:

"Life does not consist in thinking,

it consists in acting."

Start by making a decision that you need to change, then follow the steps we have outlined in our Five Step Action Plan

Develop a mentality [empowering,motivating,inspiring] that you will continue to learn and apply what you learn to move towards your goals.

Remember that everyone has setbacks in their life --If you stumble -- you need to keep going {slow down but don't stop}

Lastly, you must develop a strong will, a determination that you will not quit.

Until tomorrow, keep walking
