Copy Cat

I am a strong believer in Jesus, so these are not "salvation" change my life principles, but rather practical ways to live life to be the BEST me possible.  So this post will be some of the quotes that encouraged my spirit today.

“Most people fail at whatever they attempt because of an undecided heart. Should I? Should I not? Go forward? Go back? Success requires the emotional balance of a committed heart.
