Why spend the time trying to erase history when you can flip the pencil and make something for the whole world to see?
-written & submitted by Payton Mittenzwei, Mazomanie WI
Inaction breeds doubt and fear.
Action breeds confidence and courage.
If you want to conquer fear,
do not sit home and think about it.
Go out and get busy.
-Dale Carnegie, submitted by Mary G., Glendale AZ
As the days continue to get longer and warmer up here in the northern hemisphere, it may be a good time to “go out and get busy” to improve yourself and/or your world. It doesn’t have to be a gigantic step–remember that Ripples is all about the tiny actions that can create big possibilities. So stop thinking about the past, “flip your pencil” as Payton suggested above, and start writing a new chapter in your life!
Also, I am always seeking fresh quotes for future issues, so please reply to this issue and if you can try to format the quotes just like you see them in Ripples, with the source and your first name, last initial and your location!
