Doing Your Best

No matter what we do in life or what goals we strive to achieve or what career path we choose, as long as we are doing our best, we are achieving success.
Here are some thoughts I found on doing your best.

"Make the most of yourself, for that is all there is of you."
Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Successful people aren't born that way. They become successful by establishing the habit of doing things unsuccessful people don't like to do."

"Try and fail, but don't fail to try."
Stephen Kaggwa

"What you want to do, and what you can do, is limited only by what you can dream."
Mike Melville

Suggested Reading

Book: Trapped
Author: Ronda Gibb Hinrichsen

The Book
A forged letter, a golden vial, an ancient curse...
Her expression remained somber, but excitement crept into her voice. You are the Firstborn She...You must go to them. You want me to act as bait? Not bait, Emi. A spy. Our Trojan horse.
When Emi Warrin wakes one night to find a thief in her mother's house, she has no idea the intruder has planted a trap - a mysterious letter that will change her life forever. Lured to the Austrian Alps with Daniel, the man she loves, Emi is thrown into a perilous, mafia-like world of feuding families and a devastating curse that spans generations. As the Firstborn She - the only firstborn female in hundreds of years - only Emi can free her family from the curse that will soon afflict her as well. But for Emi to break the curse, she must delve into evil designs.
As Emi struggles to understand her destiny as the Firstborn She, she learns that everything isn't as it seems and that all choices have consequences. Can Emi break the curse before it's too late?

Romance and mystery is a good combination and this book has both. (Not to mention the author is a sweet lady:-))It was a very enjoyable read. I look forward to reading more of Ronda's work.
