There is no such thing as can’t, only won’t. If you’re qualified, all it takes is a burning desire to accomplish, to make a change. Go forward, go backward. Whatever it takes! But you can’t blame other people or society in general. It all comes from your mind. When we do the impossible we realize we are special people.

Charles Swindoll
“We cannot change our past.  We cannot change the fact that people act in a certain way.  We cannot change the inevitable.  The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude.”

Resolve to stay brutally optimistic. 
See the opportunity in every difficulty and anticipate the most favorable outcome of every situation.  Whatever you look for, that’s what you’ll find.  We can get better or we can get bitter; it all depends on the lessons we draw from each experience.  Optimism is like electricity – very little happens without it.  Know this truth:  you have all the resources you’ll ever need to handle all the challenges you’ll ever have.  In true emergencies, the true you will emerge.

Sent by a candidate:
For the past five years I have had the unique opportunity to stay at home and help to raise my children and take care of my family. No doubt, this has been the hardest job I have ever had.   In addition to caring for the children I have been focused on managing the family’s investment portfolio and growing net worth. I have also been actively involved in several volunteer activities including establishing and running of Watch Dogs (Dads of Great Students) for the local elementary school, coaching the baseball team and managing equipment for the elementary football teams for several years. I have also had financial responsibility for our horse breeding and training business “Take 2 Farms.”  Responsibilities include:   Financial planner, chef, therapist, maid, chauffeur, and ATM

Manure
In the 16th and 17th centuries, everything had to be transported by ship and it was also before commercial fertilizer’s invention, so large shipments of manure were common. It was shipped dry, because in dry form it weighed a lot less than when wet, but once water (at sea) hit it, it not only became heavier, but the process of fermentation began again, of which a by product is methane gas. As the stuff was stored below decks in bundles you can see what could (and did) happen.
Methane began to build up below decks and the first time someone came below at night with a lantern, BOOOOM!
Several ships were destroyed in this manner before it was determined just what was happening.
After that, the bundles of manure were always stamped with the term “Ship High In Transit” on them, which meant for the sailors to stow it high enough off the lower decks so that any water that came into the hold would not touch this volatile cargo and start the production of methane.
Thus evolved the term “S.H.I.T ” , (Ship High In Transport) which has come down through the ce nturies and is in use to this very day.
You probably did not know the true history of this word.
Neither did I. I had always thought it was a golf term.
