Mike Jones & Sandy Morgan: Mike in Tucson, AZ mortgage lenderSuccess in any endeavor comes when discouragement is pushed aside in favor of moving forward.

All of us get discouraged from time to time.  I know I do.  Meet someone who has a real excuse, and who never uses it!

Overcoming Cerebral Palsy

Sandy Morgan, more than any individual I've ever met in person, is the embodiment of courage. Sandy was born with cerebral palsy.  ...and it doesn't stop her. 

Author Sandy Morgan's "I Am" Statement

"I am Viking strong and Virgo tough, and these ol' eyes have seen enough

To know

  • I am, from a severe disability, a diamond encrusted in coal, possessor of an incredible mind
  • I am a mover and shaker, because of muscles that spasm and jerk, and because I'm an activist
  • I am from the lion's den ~ a radical, sit-in-a-governor's-office activist, Rosa Parks in a wheelchair
  • I am from a heart of independence ~ an owner of a business"

Dance of Victory, by Sandy Morgan - available on Amazon.comSandy's "I am" statement is included in full in the beginning of her first book.  You can read more in Sandy's book Dance of Victory, available on Amazon. 

Click the photo link to the left and buy the book.  It will be the best $12.95 you ever invested in yourself.

This photo of Sandy and me sits on my fly-tying desk in my home office. We all need a diversion, and mine isn't sky-diving.  :)


My Takeaway

Whenever I'm tempted to complain about something ~ the Real Estate industry, Real Estate values, my loan pipeline, or a particularly difficult client or anxious agent ~ I look at Sandy smiling at the camera, and get an attitude adjustment!

Thanks, Sandy!
