Our ability to handle life’s challenges is a measure of our strength of character.”   —   Les Brown

(Because I’m not really a fan of being hit over the head with clichés and obviosity – which is what motivational speakers tend to do – I’ve decided to post a picture of an earlier Les Brown.  The man with a Band of Renown!  A bit before my time genre-wise, but I’m sure some of our older followers remember him.  Apologies to the living Les, of this quote.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(Unfortunately, this is too true.  Fear leads to stagnation.  It’s just so hard to break free from it.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(Not sure if this is the bandleader, or the motivational speaker.  Either way, it’s truthful, if not pretty obvious.  But, sometimes we need the obvious to smack us in the face.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
