“Let me tell you something you already know.
The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows.
It’s a very mean and nasty place,
and I don’t care how tough you are,
it will beat you to your knees
and keep you there permanently if you let it.
You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life.
But it ain’t about how hard you hit.
It’s about how hard you can get hit
and keep moving forward;
how much you can take
and keep moving forward.
That’s how winning is done!
Now, if you know what you’re worth,
then go out and get what you’re worth.
But you gotta be willing to take the hits,
and not pointing fingers saying you ain’t where you wanna be because of him, or her, or anybody.
Cowards do that and that ain’t you.
You’re better than that!
I’m always gonna love you, no matter what.
No matter what happens.
You’re my son and you’re my blood.
You’re the best thing in my life.
But until you start believing in yourself,
you ain’t gonna have a life.”

“Every day,

think as you wake up,

today I am fortunate to be alive.

I have a precious human life

and I am not going to waste it.

I am going to use all of my energies to develop myself,

to expand my heart out to others,

to achieve enlightenment for the benefit of all beings.

I am going to have kind thoughts toward others.

I am not going to get angry or think badly about others.

I am going to benefit others as much as I can.”

The galleries are full of critics.
They play no ball, they fight no fights.
They make no mistakes because they attempt nothing.
Down in the arena are the doers.
They make mistakes because they try many things.
The man who makes no mistakes lacks boldness and the spirit of adventure.
He is the one who never tries anything.
His is the brake on the wheel of progress.
And yet it cannot be truly said he makes no mistakes,
because his biggest mistake is the very fact that he tries nothing,
does nothing,
except criticize those who do things.

Life’s challenges are not supposed to paralyze you,
they’re supposed to help you discover who you are.
Though our challenges are maybe fearsome,
so are our strengths.
Life is a series of experiences,
each of which makes us bigger,
even though it is hard to realize this.
For the world was built to develop character,
and we must learn that the setbacks and grief’s
which we endure help us in our marching onward.
“Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet.
Only through experiences of trial and suffering
can the soul be strengthened,
vision cleared, ambition inspired
and success achieved.”

HAPPY EASTER

Half-heartedness doesn’t reach into majesty.
Be empty of worrying….
Why do you stay in prison
when the door is so wide open?
Move outside the tangle of fear-thinking.
Wear gratitude like a cloak
and it will feed every corner of your life.

PEACE BE THE JOURNEY

Commitment leads to action.
Action brings your dream closer.
All the Woulda-Coulda-Shouldas.
Layin’ in the sun,
Talkin’ bout the things
They woulda-coulda-shoulda done…
But those Woulda-Coulda-Shouldas.
All ran away and hid .
From one little did.
Do not wait; the time will never be “just right.”
Start where you stand,
and work with whatever tools you may have at your command,
and better tools will be found as you go along.

“Self-discipline is often disguised as short-term pain, w
hich often leads to long-term gains.
The mistake many of us make is
the need and want for short-term gains (immediate gratification),
which often leads to long-term pain.”
Self-respect is the root of discipline:
The sense of dignity grows
with the ability to say no to oneself.

Strength does not come from winning.
Your struggles develop your strengths.
When you go through hardships
and decide not to surrender,
that is strength.
All respect comes from persisting to completion.
Continuous effort,
not strength or intelligence,
is the key to unlocking our potential.
Champions keep playing until they get it right.

Develop your willpower
so that you can make yourself do
what you should do,
when you should do it,
whether you feel like it or not.
First we form habits,
then they form us.
Conquer your bad habits
or they will conquer you.
The first and the best victory
is to conquer self.

A strong positive mental attitude
will create more miracles than any wonder drug.
Change your thoughts
and you change your world.
Become a possibilitarian.
No matter how dark things seem to be or actually are,
raise your sights and see possibilities
always see them,
for they’re always there.
Excellence is not a skill.
It is an attitude.
