Don’t Wait for Your Dreams

1015“If you wait for perfect conditions, you will never get anything done.”
– Ecclesiastes 11:4

The best time to get started on your dreams and goals is right now! Pausing until that “perfect day” arrives, when all of your problems are solved, isn’t worth waiting for. Instead, focus on taking active, small steps each and every day, and eventually those dreams will become a reality that you made possible, despite your busy schedule, troubles or worries!

Reflect Before Reacting

1010“Stupid people express their anger openly, but sensible people are patient and hold it back.”
-Proverbs 29:11

One of the best tools for anger management is delay. When someone says something that makes you angry, just wait a minute! Do your best to take a moment before reacting. Walk away if you have to, just make sure you take some time to think. Try this today!
