The past week was a tough one for me. My PC crashed after being in the shop for 3 days and it was determined that I needed a brand new hard drive. I ended up losing a lot of information that I had saved to my desk top for the past six and a half years. (I had no idea that when I took my new PC case to have my old hard drive installed into it, the entire system would freeze up and the hard drive would now become useless. I was not prepared.)
Fortunately I had saved my documents and pictures onto my external hard drive so I am now getting my ducks back in a row, as they say, and moving on.
Well, I don't know how your week was - hopefully a lot better than mine - but I thought we can all use some inspiration to keep us going through those rough spots, so I am here to share.
Here is an uplifting poem:
If you think you are beaten, you are
If you think you dare not, you don't,
If you like to win, but you think you can't
It is almost certain you won't.
If you think you'll lose, you're lost
For out of the world we find,
Success begins with a fellow's will
It's all in the state of mind.
If you think you are outclassed, you are
You've got to think high to rise,
You've got to be sure of yourself before
You can ever win a prize.
Life's battles don't always go
To the stronger or faster man,
But soon or late the person who wins
Is the person who thinks 'I CAN!'
-- Walter D. Wintle
I hope you find this as helpful and inspiring as I did.
If you find you are in a state of overwhelm and don't know where to begin and you want to get organized, once and for all, contact me. I can help.
In the meantime, I am wishing you a good week ahead.
