Have you noticed that depressed people tend to get more depressed? Angry people get angrier. Passionate people more excited. And happy people seem to get even happier. What kind of momentum are you breeding in your day-to-day interactions?

Are you breeding joy or pain?

Now, if you know what you worth, go out and get what you worth. You ain´t what you wanna be because of him or her or anybody. Cowards do that and that ain´t you! You´re better than that!-Rocky Balboa

Champions break down barriers and overcome challenges. They breed joy and gain. Cowards are often angry, unforgiving or selfish. They breed fear and pain.

Choose to be someone who breeds well. This is your life.  You only get one chance at it. If others want to walk around angry, upset and fearful, that’s their choice. It’s their life.  What you breed determines the fruit you bear.  

Attitude is everything and the attitude you have is projected in your business, your relationships, in your professional and personal life.  Honor the One who gives you choice. Breed joy in all you do and be who you are meant to be.

I am the Diamond

I met them in a restaurant,
running late as usual.
Taking too long to look perfect.
Brand new outfit, hair just done.
Must give them the impression,
I've got it all together.

But I still won't measure up.
They who have better jobs,
bigger houses, smarter kids,
more loving husbands.
Feeling jealous, I tell lies.
Weaving them into truths until,
I don't recognize the person I've become.

I implore You,
help me to see myself
through Your eyes.
Help me to know self-love,
self-worth, self confidence.
So I no longer feel inadequate.

A complete creation of Your finest work,
I am the diamond, You are the jeweler.
Every facet of my being is exquisite.
We are all Your diamonds.
Different clarity, different cut,
and all perfect in Your eyes.
