Don’t Get Discouraged; It Is Often The Last Key In The bunch, That Opens The Lock… Unknown

As one struggles with life’s difficulties, he or she should remember that, they are not alone; there’s always someone who’s been through what they are going through, and survived to give his or her testimony of a conqueror.


“Don’t get discouraged; it is often the last key in the bunch that opens the lock.” ~ Unknown


One may have said this over and again; that, he or she should always focus on the things that are working, and not on what’s not working for him or her; and see the best in every situation.  


When one is given limes, he or she should not think of their sourness; but, use them to make some 'refreshing lemonade'.  Also, one should not look at the thorns in the rosebush, but think of and see that ‘beautiful rose’.


Words of thought: When one believe that things are so bad, that he or she can’t even afford to buy a pair of shoes ~ just think of the person who has no feet.


“Whenever you feel like giving up, remember why you set this goal in the first place.” ~ Unknown


 One should always fill his or her mind with positive thoughts, connecting with inspirational or influential people, who will always encourage him or her, with kind words or a smile.


“If you have no one to encourage you, instead of using that as an excuse for failure, encourage yourself and use that as a reason why you must succeed.” ~ Kevin Ngo

Press Release comments:

Very good words of wisdom Velma.Michael Thompson

You can always see someone in more dire straits as the person who had no feet. I always think of the people with little or nothing. I also think of the boys killed in various wars, especially on Memorial Day, it refreshes my memory watching the History Channel. The key is to never feel sorry for yourself , always look to the person who is really in pain...really in trouble economically. Obviously, I don't always think gratitude, but it is a way of thought that's humble ,it's the right way to counter-act feeling sorry for yourself. But good thoughts, good reminder, thank you.Francis Cassady
