No one else “makes us angry.”

We make ourselves angry when

we surrender control of our attitude.

What someone else may have done is irrelevant.

We choose, not they.

They merely put our attitude to a test.

We cannot choose how many years we will live,

but we can choose how much life those years will have.

We cannot control the beauty of our face,

but we can control the expression on it.

We cannot control life’s difficult moments

but we can choose to make life less difficult.

We cannot control the negative atmosphere of the world,

but we can control the atmosphere of our minds.

Too often we try to choose and control things we cannot.

Too seldom we choose to control what we can …

our attitude.

Any fool can criticize, condemn, and complain

but it takes character and self control

to be understanding and forgiving.

Self-respect is the root of discipline.
The sense of dignity grows with the ability to say no to one’s self.
There are always two choices. Two paths to take
. One is easy. And its only reward is that it’s easy.
You’ve got to get up every morning with determination
if you’re going to go to bed with satisfaction.

One of the saddest lines in the world is,
‘Oh come now – be realistic.’
The best parts of this world were not fashioned by those who were realistic.
They were fashioned by those who dared to look hard at their wishes and gave them horses to ride.

Be the one they want injured in the warmup.
Who blurs the line between hate and respect.
Who can never be stopped, only feared.
Make your mark in each and every game.
Today, tomorrow, next saturday, your competition.
Effort is between you, and you, and nobody else.
Great things are not done by impulse,
but by a series of small things brought together.
The drudgery and relentlessness of effort,
repeated day in and day out, month after month, year after year,
that is what separates the strong soul from the weak,
the winner from the loser.
There are no pills, no secrets, no passwords
on the path to greatness.
You’ve got to embrace the pain, push the threshold
and JUST DO IT !

Commitment is what transforms a promise into reality.
It is the words that speak boldly of your intentions.
And the actions which speak louder than the words.
It is making the time when there is none.
Coming through time after time after time,
year after year after year.
Commitment is the stuff character is made of;
the power to change the face of things.

Competing in sports has taught me
that if I’m not willing to give 120 percent,
somebody else will

Trials, temptations, disappointments
all these are helps instead of hindrances,
if one uses them rightly.
They not only test the fiber of character but strengthen it.
Every conquering temptation represents a new fund of moral energy.
Every trial endured and weathered in the right spirit
makes a soul nobler and stronger than it was before.
There is no better than adversity.
Every defeat, every heartbreak, every loss,
contains its own seed,
its own lesson
on how to improve your performance the next time.

Challenges are what make life interesting;
overcoming them is what makes life meaningful.

Nothing splendid was ever created in cold blood.
Heat is required to forge anything.
Every great accomplishment is the story of a flaming heart.

HAPPY NEW YEAR, a new year,
a new start to become the best you ever…
The reason most people never reach their goals is
that they don’t define them,
or ever seriously consider them as believable or achievable.
Winners can tell you where they are going,
what they plan to do along the way,
and who will be sharing the adventure with them.
Goal setting is very important in life,
because without goals we would forever live in the land of imagination
with no chance of experiencing the taste of true reality.
So many things in life that are yet to be achieved are because
people haven’t bothered to set goals on them and follow their goals to the finish line.
The beginning of any success starts from setting clear effective goals.
Goals can help you approach life in a positive direction,
because so many people are full of desires,
but don’t really know how to go about fulfilling their desires.
Life without goals is truly a life without a specific direction.
Most of the great things that were achieved on earth were achieved by people who
had specific goals for themselves.
