Lesson of a Lifetime

We've all had one of those days that we know is going to be rough getting through. But it's unlikely that anything we've experienced can live up to the story of 33 Chilean miners who survived being trapped underground for more than two months.

No one in history has survived being trapped underground as long. No one even knew whether they were alive the first 17 days. They could've easily given up hope and turned on each other. But they didn't just survive - they thrived as much as they could after bonding together for support. The miners' endurance, unity, and amazing rescue have inspired the world.

Here's the way I see it: Christopher Reeve said it best, "Once you choose hope, anything's possible." We wish you success in all your business endeavors, and are available anytime you need printing help along the way.

Want to Change the World?

Who hasn't thought about changing the world? If you've ever wanted to change someone or something, the following inspirational story written by a monk in 1100 A.D. offers a piece of wisdom many of us may overlook.

"When I was a young man, I wanted to change the world. I found it was difficult to change the world, so I tried to change my nation. When I found I couldn't change the nation, I began to focus on my town. I couldn't change the town, and as an older man, I tried to change my family.

Now, as an old man, I realize the only thing I can change is myself, and suddenly I realize that if long ago I had changed myself, I could have made an impact on my family. My family and I could have made an impact on our town. Their impact could have changed the nation, and I could indeed have changed the world."

Here's the way I see it: Mahatma Gandhi said it best, "Be the change you want to see in the world." And please keep us in mind if your print documents could use a change.

Do It Anyway

I came across this poem by Mother Theresa (a revised version of The Paradoxical Commandments by Kent M. Keith), and thought I’d pass it along since we can all use a little inspiration in our day.

People are often unreasonable, illogical and self-centered;
Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish ulterior motives;
Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies;
Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;
Be honest anyway.

What you spend years building could be destroyed overnight;
Build anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous;
Be happy anyway.

The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow;
Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have and you may get hurt;
Give the world your best anyway.

Here's the way I see it: Try your best in everything you do. Even if you don't succeed, you'll be happy you tried your hardest. We promise to give you our best and look forward to being your partner in business success.
