Hurricane Florence Slamming The SE United States in Miscellaneous

about 1 month ago

Thank you Richard for opening a post to give SFI members the opportunity to express
their thoughts on such a devastating time happening in our United States and other
countries as we once again look to God with our prayers to save lives.

I wish to believe, with many prayers going up, powerful blessings will come down!

Many of us have friends and or family members in the path of these powerful storms. I pray for
their safety and the kindness of all of those who are providing shelter to those
in need of assistance.

Be Blessed,
Cynthia Purnell

Whoever said too much of a good thing is bad!? in Pricebenders #Astro Auctions

Hi Jenny,

You are a blessed young lady with a infectious high spirit. Your energy sparks the
attention of those who take the time to speak to you.

I felt this the first time we shared text in the chat area!

There is much to like about you, your spirit and, the way in which you operate your

You've shared your post here in the Forum showing the special way in which you
care about others who happen to come into your circle.

I hope your post receives a lot of attention from the members.

This should give those who are doubtful, the hope to go further.

To give them the motivation to push themselves out of a rut,
especially if, they lack the self esteem to Dream Big and Aim High!

Thank you for your caring post Jenny.

Be Blessed,

Patience & Persistence in Team Building #Getting Started #Sponsor #Team Building

Hi Kimberly,

I read your posts and all of the members posts and realized that, I
had to give you a hand clap and hoots of hurrah from myself.

I felt the same way you did when I first joined SFI. I hate losing so,
I don't!

I decide for myself to do what I've set out to engage in and whether
or not it's feasible. I put blinders on and I make the decision to not
listen to anyone refusing to understand that it's about me and not

SFI has helped me prove to myself what I'm capable of in spite of
all the naysayers.

Since I've been a member here, SFI has never let me down. I joined with
the attitude of a student and, because of that teachable attitude and eagerness
to learn, I'm reawakened every day with a spirit of belonging.

I continue to rise in team leader status because of a loyal, working team!

I'm a business owner with nothing to hold me back but myself. I work
with my movers, read continuously to make my team stronger by sending
them emails, creating blogs and newsletters and being there as much as
I can. "Readers Are Leaders"!

Kimberly, you are a thinker and thinkers are Winners! Bless you on your
continued success!

I've Got A Special Announcement - They Lied! in Inspiration/Testimonials #Getting Started

6 months ago

Hi Bruce,

I truly enjoyed your post today. Thank you for this well written, thought filled message.

The title was on point and curiosity led me here, to find out what it meant and what it was
about! Great Strategy!

It's amazing how fast people want to, throw in the towel, when things get a little tough.
I'm fortunate enough most times, to see the full picture and, to strategize how I'm going
to fight my negative thoughts to become a winner.

However, there are times when I have trouble seeing my negativity. I might argue a situation
stating, I'm positive that, I'm not negative! I tell myself this, believing that I'm right but knowing,
that I'm wrong! This is nothing but, me being fearful, psyching myself out!

SFI has given me tools and powerful insights into my inner self. I knew they were there
but I' d begun doubting that, I could think and develop my mind, to be a strong disciplined,
person who could take the role of owner in a marketing business. I have and I am a better
woman for giving myself the chance to grow.

To Live is to Challenge Onesself!
Be Blessed and Be a Blessing To Others!

Happy Birthday Today and for the Entire Year!

Your poem choice is very enlightening and I enjoyed it.
Today is my Mom's birthday! That would be You!

Not many people reach the age of 80 and you made it
so far to age,"87".

You are Blessed and are a Blessing always to others!

You are loved by many because of your loving, caring,
generous, and positive spirit.

I know that God hears and answers prayers and you
taught me and my siblings to know that we have a
Father to whom we can Stop and Pray in the good
and bad times of life. Thank you for loving us unconditionally!

Gratitude to everyone who has given me congratulations for becoming
The Badge Quest Grand Master for this month. So far today, 143 of SFI'ers
have congratulated me and I thank you!

I came down a level from the Badge Quest Grand Master Elite of the prior
month but, many thanks to everyone who gave their congrats to me. I
believe, it was 837 or something of that nature.

Hi Ms Christine,
Thank you for my beautiful birthday greeting. It's very thoughtful
of you however, this is who you are all the time. You're always thinking
of others. This is truly a wonderful honor.

I've been blessed for many years, to know you and your kindness. If I
am truly a tough cookie, it's due to my loving upbringing. You've given
me a gift by always being there for me. I'm blessed to have you as
my Mom!

May God Always Keep You Close To His Side,

Cynthia P
