  1. It is always good to take some time out and read quotes that will motivate you.
    Life can be so busy that we forget to recharge our own energy.
    I read through all the quotes and felt the best was
    Abraham Lincoln’s: “The Best Way to Predict your future is to create it.”
    It reminds us of who is pulling our strings and if it is not ourselves then someone else is doing it for us.
    Choose your own direction or you will be obliged to follow others.
