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.

EUR MOTIVATIONAL NOTE

Today’s ‘Live Better With Willie Jolley’ Tip: The Mind Tattoo

Today’s ‘Live Better Tip for Success’ is focused on helping you Turn Your Setbacks Into Greenbacks!

Dr. Norman Vincent Peale, the author of the landmark book The Power of Positive Thinking, shared a story about a drunk man coming out of a tattoo shop and with a new tattoo on his arm that read ‘‘Born to Lose!’’ Dr. Peale watched the man stumble down the street and then noticed that the tattoo artist had come out of the shop and also looked as the man stumble away. The old tattoo artist sadly shook his head and said, ‘‘I asked him if he was sure that he wanted that tattoo and he was adamant that he did.’’ Dr. Peale then said, “…before he had it tattooed on his arm, he had tattooed it on his brain!’’ He believed that the man really was born to lose and therefore, he acted like he was born to lose. None of us were born to lose. Yet the choice is up to us!
