Every night before you go to sleep, look at the good you've accomplished during the day; measure your progress, and make plans for taking advantage of whatever opportunity the morning brings your way.
Simple Wisdom - Inspirational verses for each day!

As I went to bed last evening I was surrounded by 17 file folders--all works in progress: speaking engagements, writing projects, deadlines, and my "passionate to-do" folder--an ongoing list of the things I want to do, but haven't accomplished yet! The day had been one of constant interruptions and it seemed that "nothing" was being accomplished--I was faced with more "to-do's" and my passion for completing them was fading. But then I picked up the folder titled: Passionate Living Workshop. Then I had one of those lightbulb moments: Wait a minute, this is the whole purpose of what I do--to help others discover their passion! In the last chapter of Trading Ashes for Roses I explore the questions that helped me to discover my passion; it started with three simple questions: If you had a year to live, what would you do differently? What would change in your life now in order for that to happen? What are some goals you can make in order for that to become a reality (name at least three)?

Measure your progress one passionate goal at a time! For more helps and hints on discovering your passion, check out: Trading Ashes for Roses at
