Success does come from what you do occasionally. I comes from what you do consistently

Look in the mirror, that's your competition

The 1st step to getting what you want is having the courage to get rid of what you don't want

Two things you can control, Attitude & Effort

What you are afraid to do is a clear indication of the next thing you need to do

Don't talk, act. Don't say, show. Don't promise, prove

There are some people that always seem angry & continuously look for conflict. Walk away; the battle they are fighting is not with you, it is within themselves

Compliment people, magnify their strengths, not their weaknesses

I'm not trying to prove anything, I'm just doing me. Motivate me, support me or get out of my way

The sign of a beauty of a beautiful person is that they always see the beauty in others

Wake up every morning with the thought that something wonderful is about to happen

Confidence is not will they like me, confidence is, I'll be fine if they don't 

The best way to win an argument is to ask questions. It makes people see the flaws in their logic

Actions always prove words mean nothing

A person's mind is so powerful, we can invent, create, experience & destroy things with thoughts alone

The less you respond to negative people, the more peaceful you life will become

Of course it's hard, it's supposed to be hard, if it was easy, everyone would do it., hard is what makes it great

I may not be perfect but, watch me improve

You don't have to be perfect to be amazing

Just because you aren't where they are, doesn't mean you don't have what it takes

Become somebody that nobody thought thought you could be

Always remember the 3 kinds of people in your life   1. Those who helped you in difficult times  2. Those who left you in difficult times  3. Those who put you in difficult times

You have to learn the rules of the game & then play better than everyone else  Albert Einstein 

Never stop doing your best just because someone doesn't give you credit

You don't get what you wish for, you get what you work for

Live the way you want to be remembered

Follow your dreams even if it means standing alone

Your desire to change, must be greater than your desire to stay the same

You earn your trophies at practice, you just pick them up at competitions

The best project you'll ever work on is you

Instead of saying "I don't have time" say "it's not a priority" & see how that feels

It's a slow process but, quitting won't speed it up

A moment of patience in a moment of anger saves you hundreds of moments of regret

You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have. Bob Marley

Never give up on a dream just because of the time it will take to accomplish it, time will pass anyway.  Earl Nightingale

The reason most people resist change is they focus on what they have to give up instead of what they have to gain

Sometimes the best way to get someone's attention is to stop giving them yours

Be stronger than your excuses

Surround yourself with only with people that are going to lift you higher

Set goals that scare you and excite you at the same time

Every failure is a lesson, if you are not prepared to fail, you are not ready to succeed

Dead last is better than did not finish, which trumps, did not start

You can never expect to succeed if you only put in work on the days you feel like it

The secret of success is to focus all your energy, not on fighting the old but on building the new

Ask yourself, is what you're doing today, getting you closer to what you want to be tomorrow

Theodore Roosevelt

People think “this guy is brave”. While at the same time the entrepreneur is thinking, how the heck did I get on this lion & how do I keep from being eaten?
Opportunity is missed by most people because it’s dressed in overalls & looks like work.  Thomas Edison

Someday, we’ll forget the hurt, the reason we cried & who caused us pain. We will finally realize that the secret of being free is not revenge, but letting things unfold in their own way & own time. After all, what matters is not the first but the last chapter of our life which shows how well we ran the race.  So smile, laugh, forgive, believe & love all over again.

A pretty face is nothing if you have an ugly heart

You know why it’s hard to be happy? It’s because we refuse to LET GO of the things that make us sad.

Always remember that your present situation is not your final destination. The best is yet to come.

What is the greater risk? Letting go of what people think or letting go of how I feel, what I believe & who I am?   Brene Brown - The Gifts of Imperfection
Joy is not a constant. It comes to us in moments - often ordinary moments. Sometimes we miss out on the bursts of joy because too busy chasing down extraordinary moments. Other times we're so afraid of the dark we don't dare let ourselves enjoy the light.

Life to me is the greatest of all games. The danger lies in treating it as a trivial game, a game to be taken  lightly, and a game in which the rules don't matter much. The rules matter a great deal. The game has to be played fairly or it is no game at all. And even to win is not the chief end. The chief end is to win it honorably and splendidly.   by Sir Ernest Shackleton

their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered."*

We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented & fabulous? Actually your playing small does not serve the world.

As we are liberated from our own fear, our own presence dramatically liberates others.       Nelson Mandela

and to embrace them with courage, faith and hope. !

You cannot help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves.
