MESSAGE OF THE DAY
• Why is it that, so often, when we get what
  we're after it seems so empty? Because we
  fail to realize that the journey is the reward.
  Goals and aspirations are important because
  of what you become in getting there.
• Once the goal is reached, it has little value
  and it's time to set a new goal. Life is a
  continuous growth process. If you're not
  growing, you're not living.
