34 Quotes that got me through 2013

December 26, 2013

A good year is made up of 12 good months, 30 days make it a good month, 4 good weeks make it a good month, 54 good weeks go into a good year, 7 good days in a good week, 24 good hours make up a good day.

The best and only advice I will give you on succeeding in 2014 is this (34 quotes from my 2013 archive):

3) 12 months ahead…(let’s take it) one month a time…challenges will come, our faith and resolve will be tested…but it still remains “one month at a time”

4) Create businesses that harness your values

5) Lesson of the day (for the young ones): Success can be achieved through deliberate and purposeful action…
