Focus is on the 3 O's of Teamwork:
Open Mind - Oneness • Listen and learn form others, empty your cup, and yearn to understand principles and concepts, and have faith and vision.
Open Heart - Togetherness • Speak what you know best, be sincere and share your stories, be sensitive and compassionate, and Educate and Entertain.
Open Arms - Forgiveness • Accept the moment and invite it in, dissolve your ego, be sincere and willing to share knowledge, learn from mistakes, and be courageous.
When the heart weeps for what it has lost, the spirit laughs for what it has found.
--Old Sufi saying
Expect the extraordinary, don't accept the ordinary!
Knowing others is wisdom, knowing yourself is Enlightenment
Nothing is impossible to a willing mind
A True Leader has the confidence to stand alone.
Respect Others, But Respect Yourself too!!
I complained of only one shoe until I met a man with only one leg - APPRECIATE what you have
If it is within the realm of imagination, it is within the realm of possibility.
Become not strong but weak - Be AWARE of your own faults
If you love life, don't waste time, For Time is what life is made up of.
You may not be able to control people's responses, but you can control your own actions and attitudes!
