We make excuses, we live with regret, we get second chances, but yet we wait for permission. This might be a great time to let you know there’s a book out there that will inspire the ready person to grant themselves permission. – jn
There is no passion to be found in settling for a life less than the one you are capable of living. – Nelson Mandela (RIP yesterday, December 5, 2013)
…Thank goodness it’s Monday! Do you need some inspiration while you think about the end of your tough year, as we most likely head into more of the same?
During my lifetime I have dedicated myself to this struggle of the African people. I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black domination. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities. It is an ideal which I hope to live for and achieve. But if it needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die. —Nelson Mandela (during his 1963 trial)
Does your vision for 2011 make you cry because it’s so powerful?
