Become a Layaway Angel this Christmas

layaway-angel
Christmas is a time to get together with family and friends, to partake in parties, to exchange gifts and spend time with our loved ones. There is no singular true meaning of Christmas. While it does celebrate the birth of Jesus, it has a much larger meaning.

Christmas is a joyous time when people should think beyond their own wishes or desires. While perfectly normal and necessary to cater to one’s own needs, it is also important to do something for the greater good.

Caring for people, looking out for one another, being kind, compassionate and indulging in selfless deeds is what Christmas should be about.

Last year, we did something different in our efforts to give back, by becoming layaway angels.

Does Your Thinking Set You Up for Success or Failure?

robert-syfert-success-failure
Although everyone wants to achieve success in their lives, only some have the mindset to get there. Many people have a failure-oriented perspective that can be very destructive and detrimental to their progress, both professionally and personally. Success doesn’t happen as a result of passivity – you need to actively pursue it with a highly outcome-oriented approach.

If you take a look at some of the most successful people in any industry, you will notice that they aren’t easily distracted or bothered by the negativity around them. They don’t get sucked into unnecessary arguments or insignificant gossip. Instead, they are highly focused at all times. This focus is a skill that can take a long time to hone, but once you develop this ability, you will find that the road to your personal success seems unobstructed.
