The most powerful agent of growth and transformation is something more basic than any technique:

a change of heart.

--John Welwood  


The 7 UP’s
Circle 10 Council


Wake Up - Decide to have a good day.

Dress up - The best way to dress up is to put on a smile.  A smile is an inexpensive way to improve your looks

Shut up - Say nice things & learn to listen.  We have been given two ears and one mouth so we can do twice as much listening as talking.

Stand up - For what you believe in.  Stand for something or you will fall for anything.

Look Up - To our higher power who gives us strength to do everything through Him who gives me strength

Reach Up - For something higher.  As Jiminy Cricket sings "High Hopes" always try to better yourself.

Lift Up - Your Prayers.  Do not worry about anything; instead pray about everything.

Have a great day and remember the 7-Ups of life.
