Look Inside
by Denis Waitley

When the prize seems high above you
And your mirror doesn’t love you
Look inside

When the road to gold gets steeper
And your diamond’s buried deeper
Look inside

Light a candle in your mind
Untold riches you will find
When you look for treasures
Look inside

When you’re running low on laughter
And can’t reach the goals you’re after
Look inside

When your body starts complaining
And the clouds of doubt keep raining
Look inside

Close your eyes and then believe it
Trust yourself and you’ll achieve it
When you’re seeking answers
Look inside

Seven Simple Steps to an ENRICHED life


TCOY is more than a business name, it’s a philosophy and ACTION IS REQUIRED:

1. ENGAGE: BE PROACTIVE – Make something happen every single day.  ACTION!!

2. BE A CALCULATED RISK TAKER: Get out of your comfort zone.  CHALLENGE = GROWTH

3. REVIEW WHO YOU ARE HANGING AROUND: Make sure you are around people who are challenging you to be your best; chose to make a positive difference in the lives of others.

4. BE YOUR BEST – YOU MUST LOVE YOURSELF BEFORE YOU CAN LOVE OTHERS. Be committed to being your best and love yourself (stop being so critical ok!)

5. DAILY DISCIPLINE: We are creatures of habit.  Easy to do, easy not to do.

6. SPIRITUAL: Acknowledge you are a spiritual being having a physical experience.

7. LOTS OF HUGS: Make sure to let your family and friends know how much you love and appreciate them.  If you see someone without a smile…give them yours :)

Be Thankful ~




“Be thankful that you don’t already have everything you desire,

If you did, what would there be to look forward to?

Be thankful when you don’t know something

For it gives you the opportunity to learn.


Be thankful for the difficult times.

During those times you grow.

Be thankful for your limitations

Because they give you opportunities for improvement.

Be thankful for each new challenge

Because it will build your strength and character.


Be thankful for your mistakes

They will teach you valuable lessons.

Be thankful when you’re tired and weary

Because it means you’ve made a difference.

It is easy to be thankful for the good things.

A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who are

also thankful for the setbacks.


GRATITUDE can turn a negative into a positive.

Find a way to be thankful for your troubles

and they can become your blessings.”  Author Unknown
