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 ‘Ole Country Dog

Good Morning. Today’s LIVE BETTER TIP for Success is focused on helping you Turn Your Setbacks Into Greenbacks!

Most people don’t live their dreams because they would rather sit around, complain, and bemoan their state rather than fight for their dreams. Folks, you should never complain about what you allow. You have a choice! I’ll share a story with you that illustrates this point.

There was a man walking down a country road. He walked past a porch, where an old farmer was sitting in his rocking chair, and next to him was a dog that was howling and making all sorts of noise. The man walked up to the farmer and asked, ‘‘Why is that dog howling and making so much noise?’’ The farmer said, ‘‘Because he’s sitting on a nail.’’ The man said, ‘‘Why doesn’t he get up?’’ and the farmer said, ‘‘ ’Cause it don’t hurt bad enough!

Don’t complain about what you allow. You have a choice. You should choose where you want to go in life. You can…if you want to! Choose to be GREAT!
