Presented by Daniel Toriola From Failure To Victory The Cat39s Out Of The Bag By Richard Vegas From Failure To Victory The Cat39s Out Of The Bag by Richard Vegas Did you ever think that all of the great heroes we read about may not have been particularly great men in and of themselves They may not have been born with any great skills talents or abilities But each of them did have one special quality that we would all do well to cultivate A Tough Nut To Crack Because of my passion for recording and singing I39ve had the opportunity to meet some really famous people And one thing I have discovered about these people is that they have a quotnever say quit philosophyquot They have a bull dog tenacity that would make a snapping turtle jealous A side thought just in case you have never heard the saying goes that a snapping turtle if it bites you won39t let go till it thunders I don39t know if it is true or not and couldn39t care less because I don39t let snapping turtles bite me So back to my point Live And Learn The stories l have been told by these famous people is sometimes shocking and very inspiring I won39t mention any names but one in particular comes to mind See if you can relate to this tragedy to triumph His passion was for music as mine is and during the early years of his struggle to reach the top he lived in an apartment with no bathroom After a short while he got kicked out which he says was not a big loss then he lived in a convertible automobile with a leaky top He literally and he truthfully swears he lived off of cat food in a can for a year It took him almost twenty years to have his first number one hit And that means twenty years of playing the honky tonks for peanuts with no success any where in sight Never Look Back Page 1 Presented by Daniel Toriola I His story really made me think how much do we really want success How much blood are we willing to give What kind of a price are you willing to pay for that elusive dream that captivates and mesmerizes you For my friend that I39ve mentioned there was no price too great no sacrifice too large no limits he placed on himself except for breaking the law he never crossed that line but he was willing to pull out all stops to have what he dreamed His Goose ls Cooked His father even tried to bribe him with money to forget the crazy notion of pursuing music He decided to stay in his leaky roof convertible and he said by that time he had started to like cat food Yuk His father said dumb decision boy His father asked him ok how long are you going to pursue this He told his father he had placed a limit on the timeframe and said that it was one hundred years If he didn39t succeed after one hundred years he would quit His father said dumb decision boy Pinch Me To See If I39m Dreaming tell you this story not to insinuate that this is the kind of life a person must endure in order to have great success But to share with you that here was an ordinary person with no extra special gifts just a never quitting attitude that caused him to be living his dream today If there is any quality that separates the successful person from the failure it is persistence Not talent not ability not education And over and over I have been told by some big name people how hard the struggles were to reach the top Persistence is like the object in motion It takes more energy to stop it than for it to continue its course Starting the object is where most of the energy is used And it39s the same in pursuing success You Can Bet Your Bottom Dollar Everyone wants to be a success in life but unless you make a commitment to never say quit you will have a lot of opportunities to fail The comforting thing is life will never quit on us it will keep presenting us with opportunities to succeed many of which will look like you39ll be up to your neck in alligators You may have a problem now that you39ve tried and tried to overcome You many have even said quotI39ve fought this thing so longquot What39s the use I39ll never win I have just one word of encouragement for you Just remember quotCat Foodquot When I first decided that l was not meant to work for someone else a friend gave me a poem that I want to reprint here The author of this poem is unknown and I39m sure some of you will have seen it and I39m sure a lot of you haven39t It was an inspiration to me when first read it and I39ve kept a plaque of it for many years The title is quotDon39t Quitquot Don39t Quit Page 2 Presented by Daniel Toriola When things go wrong as they sometimes will When the road you39re trudging seems all uphill When the funds are low and the debts are high And you want to smile but you have to sigh When care is pressing you down a bit Rest if you must but don39t you quit Life is queer with its twists and turns as every one of us sometimes learns And many a fellow turns about When he might have won had he stuck it out Don39t give up though the pace seem slow You might succeed with another blow Often the goal is nearer than it seems to a faint and faltering man Often the struggler has given up When he might have captured the victor39s cup And he learned too late when the night came down How close he was to the golden crown Success is failure turned inside out The silver tint of the clouds of doubt And you never can tell how close you are It may be near when it seems afar so stick to the fight when you39re the hardest hit It39s when things seems worst that you must not quit Author Unknown Worth Its Weight In Gold If you won39t quit your faith in yourself and the goodness of God will see you through Remember with you and God you can turn failure into victory Richard Vegas Richard Vegas is a popular recording artist and internet marketing

Ann Kristin Cats look cute and adorable That is until they start biting poor unsuspecting human beings Cats need to be taught good behavior A lot of biting that is done by cat is a result of uncorrected bad behavior Keep in mind that cats came from the wild Even though now cats have been domesticated and live in close contact with humans their instincts remain the same They are born hunters and are equipped with the natural tools designed to hunt a prey Cats have predatory instincts Biting is a part of a cat39s defense mechanism They do this when they feel threatened Since biting is a cat39s way to protect themselves humans have to be careful that their cats don39t think they are threatening them in any way when they are playing with their cats Remember that cats are predatory by nature They exhibit this trait by playfully pouncing and biting the hands and feet of their owners It39s important for owners not to tolerate this behavior Otherwise their cats will think it is acceptable Cat owners should not encourage their cats to think that their hands and feet are play things A lot of cat owners who tolerate this behavior have scars to prove this unfortunate mistake Look for the cause Sometimes cats exhibit bad behavior such as scratching and biting when they are ill or have an injury They also do this when they feel anxiety or fear Cat owners need to pay close attention to the health of their cats They also need to examine their cat39s environment to assess if there39s something about their surroundings that is causing their cat39s bad behavior Train your cat When training a cat owners should reward their pets for their good behavior and obedience This encourages the cat to maintain a good attitude You can do this by giving them treats or showering them with affection Fun activities Sometimes cats bite when they get listless When a cat starts to scratch and bite owners can put a stop to this by distracting the cat with a fun activity Give the cat a toy to play with This will get the cat39s attention and keep the cat preoccupied Cats are wonderful pets to have Not only are they clean creatures they keep themselves clean by licking their fur But they are also very useful The Ancient Egyptians used to keep cats to catch rodents Page 4 Presented by Daniel Toriola I But first things first cats need to be trained and taught the rules of the house Luckily for cat owners this means no more biting Cat Care Secrets is an excellent place to find cat links articles and resource For more information on Cats visit httowwwcatcaresecretscom Page 5
