Obstacles can’t stop you. Problems can’t stop you. Most of all, other people can’t stop you. Only you can stop you. – Jeffrey Gitomer

Ahh such powerful words. Is there a better way to end the week? Jeffrey Gitomer makes his living through encouraging and empowering others. He is one of the many motivational speakers and business trainer. Perhaps you can tell through his quote that he truly believes in self empowerment. He can be sort of brash in his delivery, some call it realistic.

You may or may not agree with his attitude but Jeffrery’s quote should help encourage you. Give you affirmation of the control you have over your life. for some more gentle encouragement I purpose you look to

Garth Brooks song “I will sail my Vessel”.

You know a dream is like a river,
Ever changing as it flows,
and the dreamer is just a vessel,
that must follow where it goes.

Trying to learn from whats behind you,
and never knowing whats in store.
Makes each day a constant battle,
just to stay between the shores.

And i will sail my vessel,
till the river runs dry.
Like a bird apon the wind,
these waters are my sky.
I’ll never reach my destination
If i never try,
So I will sail my vessel,
till the river runs dry!

Too many times we stand aside,
and let the water slip away.
And what we put off till tomorrow,
has now become today.
So don’t you sit apon the shore line,
and say you’re satisfied.
Choose the chance to rapids,
and dare to dance the tides.


There is bond to be rough waters,
and i know i’ll take some falls,
with the good lord as my captin,
I can make it through them all!




If it is a wonderful song or a tough quote remember today and tomorrow your life is yours. You are in charge, you are the captain. Set the sails and head out!
