    When I had
    got the position as a BLANK  YEARS AGO
    the wage was ok at the time, MANY YEARS LATER WITH NO RAISE GETS OLD REAL FAST ‘NO
    APPRETIATION”. They always have the same excuses business is slow we don’t have
    the money right now. But yet they hire people off the street making more than
    you. COMPANY HAS NO WORK ETHICS. DOES NOT CARE ABOUT THE PEOPLE THAT WORK THERE
    ALREADY. COMPNAY IS A JOKE.

    The companies
    that they secure now they try so hard to hold on to them by making up excuses
    all the time on everything. Making comments like oh yes were going to get X
    amount of hours here soon cuz were just such a great company. WELL if that’s the
    case why don’t you start off by taking care of the people that are taking care
    of you.    JOKE, JOKE  JOKE.

    If you’re
    reading this and you debating whether or not to get this company as your
    security provider, think a minute if there mis-treating their own employees
    what will they do for you. HUMMMM makes you think.

  2. Great quotes! Especially the one about children, those who can see the invisible and the tragedy of those who tell themselves or are told that something is impossible and so do not even attempt anything.I would add this one to it: “Start by doing what is necessary; then do what’s possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.” – St. Francis of AssisiGod bless, Anne Marie :)

  3. This was awesome! So inspiring! When I lose my motivation to overcome a challenging area in my life I remind myself of the quote, “If you really want something, you’ll find a way. If not, you’ll find an excuse.” Thanks again for sharing these inspirational quotes. Now I have more quotes to motivate me when I need a push in the right direction.

  4. Excellent blog. Have you read the new best seller 25 Laws for Doing the Impossible? You may enjoy the book.
