Take small realistic steps, move deliberately forward and keep those dreams alive and big!!!

I wish you much prosperity in all areas.


In This Issue
Positively Speaking
Reaching Your Goals Through Change

Most of us are creatures of habit and don't like change. Change can be scary but is an opportunity for growth.

Change has made me look at what is important and what is not. It forces us to see that which we value and what we can let go of. 

Those who have made their dreams happen have learned from mistakes and risk-taking and have gone from failing relationships, jobs, health, and low self-esteem to lives that are thriving. 
The climb to the dream can seem insurmountable. But if you take each step steadily, pause in the process and keep going, it's amazing how far you will have come when you look back. Acknowledgement of your strengths and your process is vital. The foundation is built upon your commitment, vision, and belief in yourself.
The program that helps you turn obstacles into opportunities, challenges into solutions and find answers to tough questions. Patricia Raskin is the award winning, "powerhouse voice of radio"  at the forefront of positive messaging.
