    1. “Have you ever heard the saying ‘Don’t sweat the small stuff’?… I’m here to tell you that you’d better. See, the small stuff is what makes up the larger picture of our lives.”
    2. “Despite popular belief to the contrary, there is absolutely no power in intention… There is no difference in the person who intends to do things differently and the one who never thinks about it in the first place.

Yet intention without action is an insult to those who expect the best from you.”- Andy Andrews

Indecision limits the Almighty and His ability to perform miracles in your life. He has put the vision in you — proceed. To wait, to wonder, to doubt, to be indecisive is to disobey God. -Andy Andrews, The Traveler’s Gift” ― Andy Andrews

It is in the valley that we slog through the lush grass and rich soil, learning and becoming what enables us to summit life’s next peak.” ― Andy Andrews, The Noticer: Sometimes, All a Person Needs Is a Little Perspective

If you set your mind on loss, you are more likely to lose…But a grateful perspective brings happiness and abundance into a person’s life.”

It is simply that they did not make a mistake; they made a choice…and never understood the difference between the two.”
    ― Andy Andrews, The Noticer: Sometimes, All a Person Needs Is a Little Perspective
