BIG PTU welcome to our newest member, Sam Prindle! We're so happy you've joined us!
Yes Judy he has inspired me for a long time. enjoy seeing his videos on youtube. Working on follow-up and getting planned for networking events,
Hope that 2013 is treating everyone well. I have heard from several voice actors that so far it has been a good year and gratefully I can say the same.
I recently finished the book, "Over the Top" by the late Zig Ziglar. It is a really good book that is worth the read and it applies to everyone and to all businesses. One of the many things I like about his books is that they are very positive (yet realistic as in you have to work hard too) and have some great quotes.
Here's one that I would like to share with you all,
"Motivation is the spark that lights the fire of knowledge and fuels the engine of accomplishment. It maximizes and maintains momentum." -Zig Ziglar
Have a super day everyone!
Thanks Penny. I've spent so many of these alone, it's just another day of the week like Christmas and birthdays, lol.
Happy Sweethearts Day, my positive friends.
I know that some of you are living today without a sweetheart. If you are searching, don't fear, he or she is right around the corner!
In the meantime, there's no rule against buying flowers, or chocolates or other yummy things for yourself! Celebrate the fact that you are a "sweetheart" to all of us here at PTU and be positive that your true love is on his or her way.
Remember.....I love you!
When Life Gives You Rotten Lemons? Advice from Joe's Dump:
The Positive Power of Negative Thinking
(thanks to Penny for allowing me to post!)
A young woman went to her grandmother and told her about her life and how things were so hard for her. She did not know how she was going to make it and wanted to give up. She was tired of fighting and struggling. It seemed as one problem was solved a new one arose.
Her grandmother took her to the kitchen. She filled three pots with water. In the first, she placed carrots, in the second she placed eggs and the last she placed ground coffee beans. She let them sit and boil without saying a word.
In about twenty minutes she turned off the burners. She fished the carrots out and placed them in a bowl. She pulled the eggs out and placed them in a bowl. Then she ladled the coffee out and placed it in a bowl. Turning to her granddaughter, she asked, "Tell me what do you see?"
"Carrots, eggs, and coffee," she replied.
She brought her closer and asked her to feel the carrots. She did and noted that they got soft.She then asked her to take an egg and break it.
After pulling off the shell, she observed the hard-boiled egg.
Finally, she asked her to sip the coffee. The granddaughter smiled, as she tasted its rich aroma. The granddaughter then asked. "What's the point,grandmother?"
Her grandmother explained that each of these objects had faced the same adversity--boiling water--but each reacted differently.
The carrot went in strong, hard and unrelenting. However after being subjected to the boiling water, it softened and became weak. The egg had been fragile. Its thin outer shell had protected its liquid interior. But, after sitting through the boiling water, its inside became hardened.
The ground coffee beans were unique, however. After they were in the boiling water they had changed the water.
"Which are you?" she asked her granddaughter.
"When adversity knocks on your door, how do you respond? Are you a carrot, an egg, or a coffee bean?"
Think of this: Which am I?
Am I the carrot that seems strong, but with pain and adversity, do I wilt and become soft and lose my strength?
Am I the egg that starts with a malleable heart, but changes with the heat? Did I have a fluid spirit, but after a death, a breakup, a financial hardship or some other trial, have I become hardened and stiff?
Does my shell look the same, but on the inside am I bitter and tough with a stiff spirit and a hardened heart?
Or am I like the coffee bean? The bean actually changes the hot water, the very circumstance that brings the pain. When the water gets hot, it releases the fragrance and flavor. If you are like the bean, when things are at their worst, you get better and change the situation around you.
When the hours are the darkest and trials are their greatest do you elevate to another level?
