Do you have a problem motivating yourself? Are you motivating others?I have recently run into a lot of people in my life who are struggling with motivation issues. They seem to complain of not having enough time in their day to do what they have to do. When they see all that is piling up, they just can not seem to move ahead and work it out. They claim they are “not motivated.” They look for someone or something to miraculously motivate them. They spend hours searching and searching. Well, my opinion is that they can stop looking around and start looking at themselves. The answer is within all of us. To get motivated, we need to educate ourselves. During the education process, we find answers to questions we did not even know we were seeking. By educate, I mean this. Let’s say you need to figure out “how” to do something efficiently. Well, first figure out the “how” and then move from there. A simple example is, “How do I plan Thanksgiving dinner without it being a disaster?” Well, first realistic, something is always bond to go a little wrong. That is part of the fun of the holidays. First, ask yourself what exactly you mean by “a disaster.” Is it that no one will have fun? Is it that no one will like your food selection? What exactly do you mean? That is the first step. Clear those up and you will be motivated to continue. You can simply put together a menu plan and then share it with your invited guests, and get their reaction. If they say it looks great, stop worrying. As far as being bored goes. What are the ages of your guests? Any lids? Have some age appropriate board games to amuse them. Adults can also play board games or a fun game of charades. Motivate yourself to be creative and educated. You are the only one who can motivate yourself. Others can offer support, but it is all on you. Be thankful this holiday season that you are blessed with many talents. Use them. You’ll be great!

Happy Thanksgiving to you all.
See you soon!
Believe in Yourself;

Back to School
Summer vacation was over and Little Johnny returned back to school.

Only two days later his teacher phoned his mother to tell her that he was misbehaving.

“Wait a minute,” she said. “I had Johnny with me for three months and I never called you once when he misbehaved!”


Physics Teacher: “Isaac Newton was sitting under a tree when an apple fell on his head and he discovered gravity. Isn’t that wonderful?”

Student: “Yes sir, if he had been sitting in class looking at books like us, he wouldn’t have discovered anything.”


“If there are any idiots in the room, will they please stand up” said the sarcastic teacher.

After a long silence, one freshman rose to his feet.

“Now then mister, why do you consider yourself an idiot?” enquired the teacher with a sneer.

“Well, actually I don’t,” said the student, “but I hate to see you standing up there all by yourself.”


A little girl came home from school and said to her mother, “Mommy, today in school I was punished for something that I didn’t do.”

The mother exclaimed, “But that’s terrible! I’m going to have a talk with your teacher about this … by the way, what was it that you didn’t do?”

The little girl replied, “My homework.”


Calling in Sick
A high school had a policy that the parents must call the school if a student was to be absent for the day.

Kelly (name changed to protect the guilty), deciding to skip school and go to the mall with her friends waited until her parents had left for work and called the school herself.

This is the actual conversation of the telephone call…

Kelly: “Hi, I’m calling to report that Kelly so-and-so is unable to make it to school today because she is ill.

Secretary at high school: “Oh, I’m sorry to hear that. I’ll note her absence. Who is this calling?”

Kelly: “This is my mother.”
