Think a minute…I heard a funny, true story about this guy who goes to the gym to exercise several times each week. Each time he takes 15 minutes to change his clothes and get ready. Then he walks around the gym talking with different people. After that he reads the newspaper.
Think a minute…You’ve heard the expression ”What you see is what you get.” Psychologists tell us that nothing controls our lives more than our self-image. We live like the person we see in the mirror. We are what we think we are.
Think a minute…General George Patton is one of the greatest soldiers and battle leaders in history. He was also an athlete, poet and historian. This multi-talented man was a mixture of great character strengths along with some real flaws.
Think a minute…”To marry or not to marry?” This decision is so big that it largely determines the life you live and person you become for the rest of your life. Here are seven vital areas that singles need to understand and evaluate before they choose whom to marry.

Think a minute…Years ago in South Africa a man sold his farm so he could spend the rest of his life looking for diamonds. Each year he became more desperate to find these precious, sparkling stones and become rich.
Think a minute…Ever feel like you are running in all directions but “getting nowhere fast”? After working long, hard days you still feel like you’ve got little to show for it. It is easy to “major on minors” and spend our time on so many unimportant things that our life becomes a game of “trivial pursuit”.
