Five Tips to be Extraordinary

  1. Don’t dismiss anything as impossible
  2. Be completely certain that you can overcome any obstacle
  3. When you discover a new opportunity or a great idea, don’t start tomorrow, don’t start next week, and take action.
  4. Do away with procrastination once and for all
  5. Get clear on what you really want out of life.


318It’s wondrous what a hug can do.
A hug can cheer you when you’re blue.
A hug can say, “I love you so.”
Or, “Gee, I hate to see you go.”

 A hug is “Welcome back again!”
And “Great to see you!”
Or “Where’ve you been?”

A hug can soothe a small child’s pain
And bring a rainbow after rain.
The hug! There’s just no doubt about it,
We scarcely could survive without it.

 A hug delights and warms and charms,
It must be why God gave us arms . . .
Hugs are great for fathers and mothers,
Sweet for sisters, swell for brothers.

And chances are some favourite aunts
Love them more than potted plants.
Kittens crave them. Puppies love them.
Heads of state are not above them.

A hug can break the language barrier.
And make the dullest day seem merrier.
No need to fret about the store of ‘em.
The more you give, the more there are of ‘em.

So stretch those arms without delay
And give someone a hug today.

So who do you need to hug today? It says so much to so many people. Show affection to those around you.


I’ve been helping a friend pack up her grandmother’s stuff. She wasn’t a hoarder, but she still ended up with a house full of largely worthless stuff for my friend to get rid of.

It made me ponder on what I keep and what I get rid of. When we keep something that we haven’t used for five years, why are we doing that? Is it because we are scared to get rid of it, we think we might need it one day, it was a gift?

Be Aware Of Your Speech

310One of the most amazing facts of life is that our speech determines our direction in life. Not only does it determine our thinking, but it influences so many others that we come into contact with daily.

Words are powerful.

Have you heard the saying, “What you say is what you get”?

To control your words, you must first control your mind. Whatever we sow, we reap. Words are the most powerful thing in the universe.

The words we speak will either hold us in bondage or bring us into success.

Be aware of the words you use and choose wisely; both for your own benefit and those around you.
