In honor of Black History Month... Malcolm X once said, "The future belongs to those who prepare for it today." 

Do not underestimate the power of Preparation. PREPARATION plus OPPORTUNITY equals SUCCESS!  So prepare for where you want to go in life and live ready! If you live read, you don't have to get ready because you stay ready.

When I think about preparation and living ready, I think about the second rat. lol It's the early bird that gets the worm, but its the second rat that gets the cheese. So seize the moment, and live in such a manner that you're prepared to grab every opportunity that comes your way.
