“The most important thing …is not winning but taking part;
The essential thing in life is not conquering but fighting well”
Got Big Goals? Don’t be afraid? Just do it. Big goals stretch us. The journey of reaching for them builds our stamina, our resilience. We find out things about ourselves that we never knew existed. Along the path we encourage others with the spirit to never-give- up. When the odds are against us, we learn to bounce back. Our desire to achieve and it’s in the trek that we find ourselves. We find who we are. We discover others and things that distract that we must negate from our lives. Fishing out people who discourage us, we would do well to keep at a distance.
So let’s remember that the essential thing in life is not conquering but …let us fight well.

Roxanne Valies candidate for State Rep District 95 introduced Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Guest Speaker. Candidates for 2016 state of Florida elections were presented.
Most of us long to achieve success in whatever way we can. These individuals achieved success through giving back, through involvement in our community. To each that’s their success.
The challenges of life can often be scarey. But you know what’s worse? Not having tried at all. Today, let’s be encouraged to take the leap! Go after your dreams! Goals! Aspirations! Whichever way, you will be a success for having tried.
