Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart...and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become.
Everything else is secondary. ~ Steve Job


Promise yourself:

~To be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind.

~To talk health, happiness and prosperity to every person you meet.

~ To make all your friends feel that there is something worthwile in them.

~To look ath the sunnyside of everything and make your optimism come true.

~To think only the best, to work only for the best and to expect only the best.

~ To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.

~ To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievments of the future.

~To wear a cheerful expression at all times and give a smile to every living creature you meet.

~To give so much time to improving yourself that you have no time to criticize others.

~ To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

Each of us must climb to the peaks of our own aspiration, to discover the true meaning of our existence. It starts with an idea and is followed by the motivation to see it through. A step at a time, placing one foot in front of the other, we will reach the summit of the tallest mountain. 1991 - Author unknown
The difference between the impossible and the possible Lies in a person's determination
Tommy Lasorda
If you think you can or you think you can't, your right. Henry Ford


"Our running shoes are really erasers. Every step erases a memory of a past failure. Every mile brings us closer to a clean slate. Each footstrike rubs away a word, a look, or an event that led us to believe that success was beyond our grasp." -John Bingham

Grandfather says this: "Being strong means taking one more step toward the top of the hill, no matter how weary you may be. It means letting the tears flow through the grief. It means to keep looking for the answer, though the darkness of despair is all around you. Being strong means to cling to hope for one more heartbeat, one more sunrise. Each step no matter how difficult is one more step closer to the top of the hill. To keep hope alive for one more heartbeat at a time leads to the light of the next sunrise, and the promise of a new day."

Grandfather says this: " The weakest step toward the top of the hill, toward sunrise, toward hope, is stronger than the fiercest storm."

Grandfather says this: "Keep going".

from: Keep Going the art of Perseverance by Joseph M. Marshall III

Remember, success is journey not a destination.
Have faith in your ability.
Bruce Lee

Only those who risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go. ~~T.S. Eliot


"Now if you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon, and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired."

- George S. Patton, U.S. Army General, 1912 Olympian


"The body does not want you to do this. As you run, it tells you to stop but the mind must be strong. You always go too far for your body. It is not age. It is not diet. It is the will to succeed." - Jacqueline Gareau, 1980 Boston Marathon champion
