Keys to Success

Keys to SuccessFrom time to time, I need a little inspiration. I’m probably not alone in this. I love to find “quick reads” that leave me energized and keep me focused on my work. Better still is when I read these positive messages and realize I am already doing many of the suggestions! A long time ago, my mentor, Dr. Grace Mitchell, told me to save all those things that energized, inspired, or motivated me in an inspiration folder. And then, when I needed to read something good for my soul, I could look for just the right message! It has certainly worked for me, so, from my inspiration folder, I thought to pass these keys to success on to you as well – enjoy!
