Favorite Quotes:

You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. Christopher Robin

Do or do not, there is no try. Yoda

Don't wait for your ship to come in. Swim out to it.

A diamond is merely a lump of coal that did well under pressure.

"Somehow I can't believe there are any heights that can't be scaled by a man who knows the secret of making dreams come true. This special secret, it seems to me, can be summarized in four C's. They are Curiosity, Confidence, Courage, and Constancy and the greatest of these is Confidence. When you believe a thing, believe it all the way, implicitly and unquestionably." Walt Disney

Your greatest challenge isn't someone else. It's the aching in your lungs and the burning in your legs and the voice inside you that yells "Can't!". But you don't listen. You push harder and hear the voice that whispers "Can". And you realize that the person you thought you were is no match for the one you really are.

Kendrick from DIVA Races

Don't compare yourself to others, compare yourself with who you were yesterday!
