It can launch you on a deeper personal journey toward happiness, fulfillment, and a life of meaning. As you explore ways to gather strength and improve self-esteem, remember, it is not so much about what you have but who you are. May these tips inspire you. May you go from strength to strength and be a source of strength to others.

Broke Is Not Broken                                                                                

Being broke is not the same as being broken, losing money is not the same as being lost, and finding your balance is not something you can do on a balance sheet.


Having Less Doesn't Mean You Are Less

Don't confuse having less with being less, having more with being more, or what you have with who you are.


Savor Life and Slow Down

When you're in a hurry, go slowly. The faster you go in life the sooner it is a blur.


Prayer Creates a New Path

Prayer creates a path where there is none and turns your stumbling blocks into building blocks.


Courage Is Not Absence of Fear

Put your faith, and not your fears, in charge. Courage isn't the absence of fears but how you wrestle with them.


Embrace the Future

If you're busy hugging the past, you can't embrace the future. Don't let the past kidnap your future.


Change Is the Only Constant

This too shall pass. Change is the only constant. In order to take a breath, you must release your breath.


Make a Difference

Do what you can, but never forget that letting go is very different from giving up. Of all the things you can make in life, remember you make all the difference in your life.


Embrace Happiness

Tough times don't require you to be tough on yourself. Find the courage to embrace happiness.

You Are Great

Things don't have to be good for you to be great.
