Downtown Dave’s Thought(s) For The Week

Wow, it is August already. It is hard to believe Football season is around the corner.
The thoughts of the week before this week’s awesome band lineup.

Passion is everything
If you do not have passion then you are bound to give up in the long term. Passion fuels your desire to work even when things get tough. Passion carries you to a whole new level of success. Put passion into everything, even the everyday little things. You will be surprised with the results

There is always enough time
Every person on this planet has the same amount of time as everybody else everyday. Yes some people live longer than others but I am looking at the time that you have on a weekly basis. The problem is not that you do not have the time but it is how you manage your time. That is why you need to plan your day every morning. Make sure you have time for yourself. Also make sure you make time to come to Put in Bay!

No one is holding you back
Even despite your best efforts, you cannot control other people in your life. You are the master of only yourself. Concentrate on what makes you happy.

You can always make a difference
No matter what you do in life you can make a difference and leave a legacy behind. Everyone can leave a lasting mark on this world. You can accomplish this in many ways. Even something as simple as your children. They are your legacy. They are the ones that will be here when you are gone. How you raise them is a direct reflection on you. Yes sometimes you can do all of the right things and your kids can disappoint you. Sometimes we cannot control the environment around them. Set a good example early and they will follow. Teach them to be a leader not a follower. For the people that do not have children you can still leave a lasting mark because unless you live in a cave you are surrounded by people that you can mold and help them become better people.

So come up to Put-in-Bay before the Summer is over and enjoy an island in Ohio. I know you will have a great time!
