3 Success Quotes

Christmas week I spent a couple of days at (not in) the hospital for tests and procedures. You can read about it if you like here.

Teachable Moments

One of the admitting clerks at the hospital had a wonderful collection of success quotes taped to be back of her monitor. It was obvious she had been collecting the success quotes for years.  When I asked if it was okay to take a photo of one of the worn, tattered quotes, her reply of “that’s what they are there for” seemed so obvious.

Be open when a teachable moment presents itself.  The admitting clerk is a great teacher.

The lesson?

Your platform is everywhere, even on the back of your monitor, or laptop, or phone.  So put your message out there, everywhere.

The quote?

“It’s never too late for success, and failure is a wonderful teacher; it teaches you what not to do the next time.”

The tattered paper:

never too late for success
“It’s never too late for success, and failure is a wonderful teacher; it teaches you what not to do next time.”
It's never too late for #success, and failure is a wonderful teacher. #blogboost Click To Tweet

A Thousand Ways

Recently, a couple of things happened in my business that have made me feel like throwing in the towel. Plus, breast cancer treatment has kept me away from networking events and I’ve just felt like I was falling behind.  I basically had a pity party.

Then, I found this greeting card that I received almost a year ago from Wealthy Sisters Network co-founder Reeshemah Holmes. She passed away in May of 2014.  From the grave, Sheemie is nudging me to keep on trudging.

Never underestimate the power of a heartfelt greeting card.  I will NEVER throw away this card. It will inspire me for the rest of my life.

Greeting cards really do change lives.

Relationship Marketing Tip of the Day

Reeshemah is unforgettable.  If you want to be a person other people never forget, then be remarkable.  Do remarkable things.  And by all means, send greeting cards.

If you want to be successful, remember the old proverb:

‘Tis a lesson you should heed:
Try, try, try again.
If at first you don’t succeed,
Try, try, try again
