“The best way to not feel hopeless is
to get up and do something.
Don’t wait for good things to happen to you.
If you go out and make some good things happen,
you will fill the world with hope,
you will fill yourself with hope.”

The world has the habit of making room for the man
whose words and actions show that he knows where he is going…

It isn’t the mountains ahead to climb that wear you out,
it’s the pebble in your shoe.

It is a mistake to suppose that men succeed through success;
they much oftener succeed through failures.
Precept, study, advice,
and example could never have taught them so well
as failure has done.

“The difference between a successful person
and others
is not a lack of strength,
not a lack of knowledge,
but rather a lack in will.”

“Your days are numbered.
Use them to throw open the windows of your soul to the sun.
If you do not,
the sun will soon set, and you with it.”
The road of life is strewn with the bodies of promising people.
People who show promise,
yet lack the confidence to act.
People who make promises they are unable to keep.
People who promise to do tomorrow
what they could do today.
Promising young stars, athletes, entrepreneurs
who wait for promises to come true.
Promise without a goal and a plan is like a barren cow.
You know what she could do if she could do it,
but she can’t.
Turn your promise into a plan.

The importance of aiming before taking flight.

Give a man a bow and arrow and tell him to, “SHOOT!” and his first response would be, “At what?” When there is no target there is no purpose for shooting. He could shoot the arrow anywhere and wherever the arrow ended up would be where the arrow ended up. Not much to it.

On the other hand, if you gave the archer a target and challenged him to hit the bullseye – everything changes. You now gave him something to aim at, something to challenge his skills against, something to measure his progress with, and something that gives all of his effort – purpose. All by adding in a simple target.

That’s what a goal does to a person’s life – It changes everything. You were given a life and you’ve been told ever since to, “live it.‘ Well, in order to answer that question your first thought should be, “By doing what?” And that is the key focusing question that sets the basis for this list!

Everybody in this world has a different set of circumstances, different set of skills, and a different set of opportunities through which they can interact with the world and find their unique sense of fulfillment. You’re mission in life should be to figure out what your unique, “sets” are and how you can take action to best capitalize on them that gives all of your effort purpose and meaning. Goals are the guiding light that get you there.

“My scars remind me that
I did indeed survive my deepest wounds.
That in itself is an accomplishment.
And they bring to mind something else, too.
They remind me that the damage life has inflicted on me
has, in many places, left me stronger and more resilient.
What hurt me in the past
has actually made me better equipped to face the present.”

“To become a master at any skill,
it takes the total effort of your:
heart, mind, and soul working together.”
“Seems to me that there is a fine line between
insanity and dedication…
I call that line commitment”
