Confidence and the Peanut’s Gang

Confidence - Words Webster says that the definition of confidence is the ability to feel certain about the truth or something.  Floyd V. Filson once said, “He can inspire a group only if he himself is filled with confidence and hope of success.”

When I saw the movie "Come home Snoopy" I was so amazed.  A dog that had major personality!  He was more like a person!  When I see Snoopy, I am reminded that if you believe, then a dog really can fly his doghouse all over the world.  Just believe and cool things can happen.  Every day, the adventures of Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Linus and the whole gang provided many funny moments while at the same time offering a daily inspiration and lessons on life.  Here are some life lessons that I learned from Snoopy and The Peanuts Gang.

  • Keep on trying.  Don't give up! It never hurts to keep trying because eventually, persistence will pay off.
  • Don't sell yourself short. Be all that you can be.  Don't be anything less than everything you can be.  Always have confidence.
  • Believe in yourself.  Or if all else fails, fall back on your friends.  It’s about having friends and the importance of their validation.
  • Happiness can be found in the little things.  You should find happiness in any small thing that makes you smile.  Life is too short not to enjoy it.

When you don’t have belief and self-esteem, the results are sadness and distrust with others.  A leader that has belief will think ahead and take initiatives to improve quality and avoid crisis.  A leader who works efficiently and with competence will encourage others to do likewise.  With a strong self-confidence, you can do anything that you put your mind to do.  By having the confidence in yourself will help you reach your goals and be successful.

Happy Labor Day

Labor Day - Words Labor Day was founded to give workers and their families a day of festivity to enjoy.  Workers of labor have more than earned this holiday to be able to spend it any way they want to even if it's just simply sitting at home in the rocking chair or sofa and just simply taking it easy.  Labor Day also is a sign that summer is coming to an end soon.  I would like to wish everyone have a happy and restful Labor Day.


They who tread the path of labor follow where My feet have trod;

They who work without complaining, do the holy will of God;

Nevermore thou needest seek Me; I am with thee everywhere;

Raise the stone, and thou shalt find Me, clease the wood and I am there.

Where the many toil together, there am I among My own;

Where the tired workman sleepeth, there am I with him alone:

I, the Peace that passeth knowledge, dwell amid the daily strife;

I, the Bread of Heav'n am broken in the sacrement of life.

Every task, however simple, sets the soul that does it free;

Every deed of love and mercy, done to man is done to Me.

Nevermore thou needest seek Me; I am with thee everywhere;

Raise the stone, and thou shalt find Me; cleave the wood, and I am there.
