“Success in life comes, not from holding a good hand, but in playing a poor hand well.”

– Denis Waitley, Motivational Speaker and Writer

Have you ever watched the World Series of Poker on television – you know, where the winners walk away with millions? If you have, a notable thing about these tournaments is that the viewer actually gets to see all the cards of all the players.

Rarely does the winner always get the very best cards. Almost always, the winner is the person who makes the best of the cards they are dealt.


If your life was a game of poker, where your five cards included such areas as work, family, health, faith and community, how could you make the most of these to always have a winning hand?

 From The Quotable Coach

I found this on the internet and thought it might help you with achieving your goals in 2014. I have lived my life from another quote similar to this one by Robert Louis Stevenson.

What are you going to do differently in 2014? I am starting by just doing something positive.

Have a Happy and Most Profitable New Year!
