When you find yourself in too much chaos, moving too fast, wondering what to do next, stop!  Slow down and give yourself a break to listen for that still small voice within.  If you slow down long enough and listen, you’ll hear it, the voice of greatness in each of us that can meet the challenges of today. It’s the voice with answers to your toughest situations.  Sometimes the chaos and confusion of life makes it hard to hear, so over the years it has helped me to start by reading the scriptures and many of the other great leaders and thinkers.  So slow down, take a minute or two and start with these thoughts.  They are some of my favorites that have served me well.  Never give up!  Mike Moore
