We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give. ~Winston Churchill

The Dark Side of Twitter: What Businesses Need to Know – An interesting article illustrating the power of Twitter.

Carnival of Personal Development – I want to thank Hayden Tompkins @ Through the Illusion for hosting the carnival and including me.

Success In Life – I really enjoyed this post. Peter has 5 great ingredients for success. I would also add one more ingredient, being humble.

Walk a Straight Line to High Achievement – This is a great post for those of you that set a goal, but haven’t achieved it. Are you adding extra steps?

Average versus Exceptional – A great article on qualities you may want to possess on your route to being exceptional.

No More Goody-Two Shoes – I was and probably still in some sense a good two shoe type of person. Are you a Goody-Two shoes? Have you stepped outside of this “box”?

Sunday Thought for the Day – 41 – I love this quote I saw over at Lance’s blog, Jungle of Life:

“This is the true joy in life, being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one. Being a force of nature instead of a feverish, selfish little clod of ailments and grievances, complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy. I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community and as long as I live, it is my privilege to do for it what I can. I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work, the more I live. I rejoice in life for its own sake. Life is no brief candle to me. It is a sort of splendid torch which I have got hold of for the moment and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations.” ~ George Bernard Shaw

Carnival of Personal Finance – Be sure to check out the Carnival of Personal Finance for this week’s great articles.
