Just like the headline says, this page/board is where you can discuss the stuff that we didn’t cover in today’s issue. (It’s sort of like feedback with a twist) Remember, NO name calling, racial taunting, graphic sex talk and vulgarity in general, PLEASE.




Today’s ‘Live Better With Willie Jolley’ Tip: Motivation vs. Inspiration

LIVE BETTER TIP for Success is focused on helping you Turn Your Setbacks Into Greenbacks!

Motivation deals with our heads. Its job is to get us to take action, to get up and do something. Inspiration deals with our hearts; the inner person. The head may say that what we plan to do is illogical, impossible, and cannot be done, but the heart does not care and ignores the head and the logic of the issue and goes after what it ‘‘feels’’ it must do.

We often hear of people who were in¬spired to achieve impossible feats. There are athletes who dedicate a game to a fallen friend or stories of accident or disaster victims who ex¬hibit superhuman strength to rescue others. As people think in their hearts, so are they! Learn how to tap into the thoughts of your heart as well as your head and you will be amazed at what you are able to achieve!
