Do you THINK 100% is ENOUGH?? Then on DAYS your FAMILY JUST GETS TO YOU.. Give 50%?? Then WHEN YOU ARE TIRED... Give 20?? I was there, it is my Lesson I LEARNED FOR THE DAY, I PLAN TO LEARN MANY, MANY MORE!! My WONDERFUL HUSBAND and I had a conversation about this, he said 110%, He GIVES ME MORE THAN 110%, but I woulld do GREAT for a day, then the NEXT day only give 20%, I got TIRED.. Anyone hear me.. But he HELPED ME REALIZE SOMETHING, WITH A "GREAT FAMILY", "YOU JUST CAN'T GIVE UP!".. AND IF IT ISN'T "GREAT YET" YOU GOT THE POWER TO GIVE MORE THAN 150% ALL THE TIME TO MAKE THEM "GREAT", THAT IS WHAT HE GAVE ME.. FROM THIS DAY FOWARD "I WILL GIVE MORE THAN 150% TO MY FAMILY", THAT IS A PROMISE FROM ME TO THEM..

Trebor, it is wise not to look back. However, the present moment is more powerful than the future. Here is a statement to think about and repeat to yourself daily..."The present is my point of power. I act now with vision and purpose to easily create the reality I desire." This is taken from Christopher Westra, author of I Create Reality. He explains how to combine visualization and feeling and practice it daily for any category of life. If you'd like to learn more, visit his site at: http://ICreateReality.com Lots of good info there, with no obligations. Good luck in all you do! Take care! Kay

In today's world , competition is so intense that you cannot just survive by giving your best, ie. 100% If u give 100% there will be another person who will go for 101% so you will always find some competition and yes thats good because it makes you to go on a verge of achieving more. What i have learned from my experiences is, that we constantly fall from one or the other reason, and that is the learning lessons in our lives. I have observed that if you trip because of one stone in your path, the other time you will be careful That's what you have to do, to give your 150% ie., to learn and to go higher!

I just say I gave my all or give my all. It doesn't have to be a percentage, it just has to be quality and how you present yourself. I hope everything is going well for you.I hope this helps!

Well, that's a good promise. I hope you'll be able to keep that, 'coz it's a good commitment. I'm not sure that I could give even 100%! It's easy to say things when you're inspired and worked up, but when the rubber meets the road I couldn't do half of what I promise people.

For me, it doesn't matter how many percent because nobody can really tell us how many percent we are using in everyday basis! What matters to me is the QUALITY of what you have given up! Yap, we can maximized what we are going to give but without the help of God, we can't give the optimum level. I just want to say; "I can do all things through Christ who strenghtens me!" Phuilippians 4:13 Thanks for your pieces of advice, keep up the good work, PAL!God bless you!

yeah let me ask you something well what do you do when you have done all you think you can do to please someone and still they say they love you but ya'll are only friends? I mean I broke up with him before and went back out with him but now I'm asking myself what do I do? do I move on and look for someone else or continue to be with him and listen to him saying ya'll are just friends I'm confused in what to do.

This is kind of like marriage being a 50/50 proposition; it's not; it's both partners giving 100% each.

well, your lucky i know no one that gives a 100% much less a 150% After giving so much it will start to wear a little thin trying to give give give all the time. I try to give all I can and end up feeling drained,tired,and no good to anyone. Well that could be though no one i know gives back very much if i give all i can and only getting back 20% 50% then i give up. That is why I probably have no friends.

I wish that I have a 150% effort to everything I do. To me, giving 150% means going beyond what is required, to do it better than perfect. I think sometimes when I over study for a test, I give 150%. I should probably consider giving that kind of effort towards family life, etc.
