“We all have a bit of EGO and GREED. Keep it at its minimum as “this life is not a dress-rehearsal”. “Live each day to its’ fullest”. Remember, “the devil is in the details”.
“Most misfortunes are the result of misused TIME. At the casino the odds are in favor of the house. In real life the odds favor those who utilize their time wisely to constructively pursue their goals, and to fill each day with a measure of honest work. Many waste time and mental energy hoping for the 'big break' that will propel them to greatness. The secret of success is being ready when opportunity arrives. We all have the same twenty-four hours in a day. What you do with them will decide your destiny in life’s success or failure. So let us take on the World!”
