Day Sixteen: Perhaps My Hubby Is Right

This is JeffIt’s 3:11 am.  I’m up searching for ways to acquire more coupons and coupon deals.  My lack of sleep tells me perhaps my husband is right!  I’m a very driven woman; because, I’m determined to figure out how to stretch and save my hard-earned dollar by getting the best coupon deals.  So far I’ve found several ways to acquire more coupons and get a few freebies in the process:

  1. Check the schools recycle bins
  2. Visit gas stations for unsold papers
  3. Scout curbside recycle bins
  4. Charm your newspaper delivery person
  5. Take advantage of apartment life
  6. Play the trade game
  7. Look  for free local papers
  8. Purchase newspapers (Denver’s local newspaper will allow people to have 5 papers delivered on Sunday and Wednesday of each week.)

Quote for Today: Sometimes You Gotta Get Hurt

You have to get hurt.  That’s how you learn.  The strongest people out there, the ones who laugh the hardest with a genuine smile, those are the people who have fought the toughest battles.  Because they’ve decided that they’re not going to let anything hold them down, they’re moving on.                     —Charlie Drixonn

Someone was hurt before you, wronged before you, hungry before you, frightened before you, beaten before you, humiliated before you, raped before you…yet, someone survived…You can do anything you choose to do. – Maya Angelou

Quote for Today: Nobody Goes Undefeated

 

Winning is great, sure, but if you are really going to do something in life, the secret is learning how to lose.  Nobody goes undefeated all the time.  If you can pick up after a crushing defeat, and go on to win again, you are going to be a champion someday.

– Wilma Rudolph

Quote for Today: Embracing Change

 

 

In every crisis there is a message.  Crises are nature’s way of forcing change — breaking down old structures, shaking loose negative habits so that something new and better can take their place.— Susan L. Taylor

I believe that we are who we choose to be.  Nobody is going to come and save you.  You’ve got to save yourself.  Nobody is going to give you anything.  You’ve got to go out and fight for it.  Nobody knows what you want except you, and nobody will be as sorry as you if you don’t get it.  So don’t give up on your dreams.

If you are able to figure out how to be truly interested in someone you meet with the goal of building up a friendship instead of trying to get something out of that person, the funny things is that almost always, something happens later down the line that ends up benefiting either your business or yourself personally.  Stop trying to “network” in the traditional business sense, and instead, just try and build up the number and depth of your friendships, where the friendship itself is its own reward.

—Tony Hsieh, Zappos founder and president

The Paradoxical Commandments
by Dr. Kent M. Keith

People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered.  Love them anyway.  If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.  Do good anyway.  If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies.  Succeed anyway.  The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.  Do good anyway.  Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.  Be honest and frank anyway.  The biggest men and women with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds.  Think big anyway. People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs.  Fight for a few underdogs anyway.  What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.  Build anyway.  People really need help but may attack you if you do help them.  Help people anyway.  Give the world the best you have and you’ll get kicked in the teeth.  Give the world the best you have anyway.
