Go to a game reserve. Watch a cheetah or lion or a leopard. You'll not find one of these predators sitting under a tree suffering from burnout. In fact, did you know that a cheetah misses it's prey nine out of ten times? Imagine what would happen to the cheetah if after the ninth miss, it said "I think I'll become a vegetarian!"

You see, a cheetah knows it must carry on until it eats. It does whatever it takes. Feeling sorry for itself is not an option. Nor is it an option for you. There is a powerful lesson to be learnt: Never, never, never, ever give up! Victory and triumph are the fruits of tenacity, determination and perseverance.

So are you a human cheetah? Are you the kind of person who doesn't understand the meaning of the word "can't"? Or do you allow yourself to feel sorry for yourself when you should be leading others?

Today, celebrate your misses! Get happy every time you hear the word "No!". It means you're in the game. It means you're out there answering the bell. It means you have the spirit of the predator! It means you will ultimately succeed.

And remember, God's delays are not God's denials.

And now for some punitive humour...

*The only two things we do with greater frequency in middle age are urinate and attend funerals.

*The trouble with bucket seats is that not everybody has the same size bucket.

*To err is human, to forgive - highly unlikely

*Do you realize that in about 40 years, we'll have thousands of old ladies running around with tattoos and belly button holes!

*Drinking makes some husbands see double and feel single..

*Living in a nudist colony takes all the fun out of Halloween.

*After a certain age, if you don't wake up aching in every joint, you are probably dead.

Enjoy your day, & this is not meant to be funny...
