Living Strong

Can I trust myself? The answer to that is yes. All day everyday.
People inspire me. Things I see daily, inspire me to do better.
However the path I take after being inspired is one I choose.

Just like many before him, Lance Armstrong's career success inspired many. He also survived cancer, came back to the sport and won some more. He started Livestrong (the yellow wrist band that started all other colorful wristbands). His foundation boosted cancer support. (Yay!!)
He wrote a couple of books that inspired many.

After all that, he gets charged for using performance enhancement drugs and today he is labeled a cheat, a fraud and a disgrace by some.
I have no doubt there are lots of others out there that still call him their hero.

People come and go.
I'm stuck with me.
Glad I trust me.

The Art of War

Image Nations has reviewed a book that was useful to me when I first entered the corporate world. It was (and still is) a dog-eat-dog world I wasn't ready for but quickly got in the mix for the high worldly returns, and the thrill of clawing a top spot.
I learnt a lot from Sun Tzu's The Art of War that helped me deal with the harsh and highly competitive work environment. I have no doubt that anyone that reads it will pickup at least one tip to a better life.
Patience in battle - any type of battle, is what The Art of War helped me develop that I still use.

Take a look at Nana's outstanding review of this book.

One Born Everyday

A financial institution's ad on the radio today:

"Borrow enough money to get out of debt."

I couldn't help but laugh.
They are selling their product quite well by saying what people in debt want to hear.

Enjoy your weekend and stay debt-free :-)
