Cultivate your own capabilities, your own style.
Appreciate the members of your family for who they are,
even though their outlook or style may be miles different from yours.
Rabbits don’t fly. Eagles don’t swim.
Ducks look funny trying to climb. Squirrels don’t have feathers.
Stop comparing.
There’s plenty of room in the forest.

married almost 4 yrs,
we have things in common, but in other ways we are polar opposite,
allowing & respecting those differences
allows us to retain ourselves
TO THINE OWN SELF BE TRUE

The big challenge is
to become all that you have the possibility of becoming.
You cannot believe what it does to the human spirit
to maximize your human potential
and stretch yourself to the limit.

If you find one human who has the quality & depth of character of this man
in a lifetime you are very lucky.
Words cannot express the gratitude I have for his friendship
and how much he means to me.
I am blessed to have him in my life

Confidence is the result of
hours and days and weeks and years of
constant work and dedication.

Destiny is no matter of chance.
It is a matter of choice.
It is not a thing to be waited for,
it is a thing to be achieved.

Excellence is an art won by training and habituation.
We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence,
but we rather have those because we have acted rightly.
We are what we repeatedly do.
Excellence, then, is not an act
but a habit.

Be daring, be different, be impractical,
be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision
against the play-it-safers, the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary.

And then the day came,
when the risk to remain tight in a bud
was more painful than the risk it took to Blossom.

Effort only fully releases its reward after
a person refuses to quit.

The attached picture epitomizes this,
so many I try to help with weight loss, whine “I’m not losing anything!”…
I reply “YES YOU ARE !”…
They come back with “It’s so little”…
WELL ITS THIS CONSTANTLY GOING DOWN OF THESE LITTLE INCREMENTS THAT ADD UP TO ALOT…

Confront your fears, list them, get to know them,
and only then will you be able to put them aside and move ahead.

Courage is doing what you’re afraid to do.
There can be no courage unless you’re scared.

COURAGE IF FEELING THE FEAR & DOING IT ANYWAY….
LIFE BEGINS AT THE END OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE….
booyah onward ho….

Don’t be pushed by your problems.
Be led by your dreams.

Dream lofty dreams,
and as you dream,
so you shall become.
Your vision is the promise of what you shall one day be;
your ideal is the prophecy of what you shall at last unveil.

Strength does not come from winning. 
Your struggles develop your strengths.
When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, 
that is strength.
