Inspirations for Business and Life

"It is your choice to be happy. Make up your mind to enjoy this day, to have a blessed, prosperous, victorious year. You may have some setbacks and your circumstances may change, but don't let that change your mind. Keep it set to happiness." ~ Joel Osteen
"Every day we have plenty of opportunities to be upset, to be frustrated, and to be offended. Maybe the day's plans didn't work out, or somebody was rude at the office, or a job that should have taken one hour took three.
Life is full of inconveniences. There will always be interruptions and difficult people. We can't control our circumstances, but we can control our reactions." ~ Joel Osteen
"When you smile and project an aura of warmth, kindness, and friendliness, you will attract warms, kindness, and friendliness. Happy people will be drawn to you." ~ Joel Osteen
"Wherever you are, know that God has put you there for a reason. When you understand that, your mood won't go up and down depending on your circumstances or depending on how somebody treats you. You will be stable.
You will be consistent. You will always wear a smile, be in a great mood, and be friendly. That's the sign of a mature person. "~ Joel Osteen
"We are responsible for helping and encouraging others... But we are not responsible for their choices." ~ Joel Osteen
"Sometimes our dreams appear to be dead or dying. But you have to realize, they are not really dead. The are just not in season. They are coming back. New seasons of growth are coming. New health. New relationships. New opportunities. Just because something looks dead, don't write it off." ~ Joel Osteen,"Every Day a Friday"
"When you smile, you send a message to your whole body that says, God's in control; everything is all right. This will be a good day. Don't wait to see how you feel before you express your joy.
Put a smile on your face first. Then the joy will come." ~ Joel Osteen
"You may be in a negative environment right now. The people in your life may not be going places. They may lack goals, dreams, vision, enthusiasm. You may not see how you could ever rise above. It might be easy to just accept and settle where you are and think this is your destiny.
Let me challenge you. This is not your destiny. You were made for more. God has incredible things planned for your future, but you have to do your part and bloom where you're planned. What does that mean? Develop your gifts and talents. Whatever you do, whatever your occupation is, do your best to be the best. Improve your skills. Read books. Take training courses. Go back to school if you need to. But don't you dare just sit back and think, I'll never rise higher. I'll never get out of this neighborhood. I guess this is just my lot of life.
Your lot in life is to excel. It is go further. It's to make a difference in this world. " ~ Joel Osteen
