Reach high for stars that lie hidden in your soul.
Dream deep, for every dream precedes a goal.

To laugh often and much,
to win the respect of intelligent people
and the affection of children;
to earn the appreciation of honest critics
and endure the betrayal of false friends;
to appreciate beauty,
to find the best in others,
to leave the world a bit better,
whether by a child,
a garden patch,
or a redeemed social condition,
to know even one life has breathed easier
because you have lived.
This is to have succeeded.

This week I gave a talk on “Food for the Soul” and we explored the role
that Passion plays in our “spiritual nutrition.” While it does seem that
some people seem to display more passion than others, I am convinced that
we ALL have that fire burning in our soul. For some, that fire has been
doused by disappointment, disillusionment, and unsupportive people in our
lives. It may be just a flicker, but it has not gone out!
Can you stoke your fire this week? What could you do to get fired up
again? Listen to some great music, chat with a good friend, or simply sit
back and let yourself dream BIG! As passion uncovers itself, you will be
amazed at your ability to chase your dreams and live your adventure!
