A Little Bit More

28 07 2009

by Suzie Palmer

A little bit
And a little bit more
Another bit
And then some more

To do the job
And get it done
To successful individuals
These words do sum

Up the motivation
To do it right
Giving all the might

To do a bit
A little bit more
Reaching the end
Without a flaw

Pledge of Success

17 07 2009

Today is a new day, a new beginning.

It has been given to me as a new gift.

I can either us it or throw it away.

What I do today will affect me tomorrow.

I cannot blame anyone but myself if I do not succeed.

I promise to use this day to the fullest by giving my best, realizing it can never come back again.

This is my life and I choose to make it a success.


My turn: I am not sure who wrote this pledge, but ever since I found it at the end of 2008 I have had it posted next to my desk at work and I read it every day when I come in.  I truly believe the words in this pledge and want to share it with all of you!
