Several months ago, I read an
article about a 22 year old, successful young
lady who died a premature death in a plane crash.
The more I read this article, the heavier my
heart became because she died in the midst of her
formative years. Equally tear-jerking was the
fact that she died before completing a book that
she was writing - before completing her final
Right now, your book is being
written -- and you are the author. Every moment
that passes, every day that appears and vanishes,
your pages are being written. Every word you
speak, every action you take -- shapes page after
page in your book of life. How you live and how
you treat others also shape the pages of your
book -- from cover to cover.
In retrospect, perhaps the beginning
of your book may not have been written well,
because of mistakes, or unwise decisions -- but
you can finish a bestseller. You can finish a
bestseller, because you are the starring
character and you, by your present and future
actions, control how the final chapters of your
book will read. You can finish as the winner by
doing the things that you love and not taking
your life, or others for granted.
Start a new chapter today - a
chapter that would give you and others a delight
to read. Enjoy who you are and what you do. Keep
writing and live life to the fullest.
How does your book read thus far --
and -- what will your FINAL chapter say?

Think About It!!
places on earth are graveyards. Not because
people are buried there, but because dreams,
talents, and purposes that never came to fruition
are buried there. Graveyards are filled with
books that were never written, songs that were
never sung, words that were never spoken, things
that were never done. " Mark Victor
