I choose to live by choice, not by chance. to be motivated, not manipulated, to be useful, not used, to make changes, not excuses, to excel, not compete. I choose self-esteem, not self-pity, I choose to listen to my inner voice, not to the random opinions of others. I choose to do the things that you won't so I can continue to do the things you can't
A life without pain is a life without challenge. and a life without challenge is a life without growth. So not only do I embrace the challenge and embrace the pain associated with challenge and growth. but I even look forward to it in many regards. Some people think I'm strange. but sometimes I even ask for it - Elliott Hulse
Avoid negative sources, people, places, and habits.
Believe in yourself
Consider things from every angle
Don't give up and don't give in
Everything you're looking for lies behind the mask you wear
Family and friends are hidden treasures, seek them and enjoy their riches
Give more than you planned to
Hang on to your dreams
If opportunity doesn't knock, build a door
Judge your success by what you had to give up in order to get it
Keep trying no matter how hard it seems
Make it happen
Never lie, steal or cheat
Open your arms to change, but don't let go of your values
Practice makes perfect
Quality, not quantity in anything you do
Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer
Take control of your own destiny
Understand yourself in order to better understand others
When you lose, you don't lose the lesson
Xcellence in all your efforts
You are unique, nothing can replace you
Zero in on your target and go for it

know your outcome
Clarity is power! as basic as it is, being clear about exactly what you want is the first and most fundamental place you need to go to make anything better. Often, when you ask someone what they want in their lives, they start telling you what they don't want. the challenge with this thinking, however, is that where focus goes, energy goes. if you keep focusing on what you don't want, that's where your energy goes. once you are clear about what you want, your brain starts to notice and associate to the things that will help you make it happen.
Know your reasons why
Why is it a "must" for you to achieve your outcome? if something is a "should" not a "must", "you'll take action for a while, but ultimately when it starts to get tough and uncomfortable, the tendency is to give up. When you have a powerful reason why achieving your outcome is important to you, however, it gives you the drive to continue through any challenge.
Take Massive Action!
Massive action is a cure-all. Whenever you see someone who has succeeded on a massive scale - whether it's in sports, business, politics, academics, entertainment - chances are they took consisten, massive action to get where they are today. It's the old adage., "You're rewarded in public for what you practice in private.
Notice your results
You have to know what you're getting as a result of the action you're taking. In other words, are your current actions getting you closer, or further away, from the outcome you want to achieve? if you're running east looking for a sunset, it doesn't matter how committed you are. you won't get there. you have to avoid tunnel vision and make sure that what you're doing is leading you where you really want to go.
Change your approach
If you're taking action and it isn't getting you where you want to be, the last step is to change your approach accordingly. Now, how many times do you keep changing your approach? The answer, of course, is : as many times as you have to until it works.
Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. it's an opinion. impossible is not a declaration. it's a dare. impossible is potential. impossible is temporary. impossible is nothing - Muhammad Ali
There is no such thing as "going back to square one." even if you feel like you're having to start over, you are trying again with more knowledge, strength & power than you had before. your journey was never over, it was just waiting for you to find it again
To be a warrior is not a simple matter of wishing to be one. it is rather an endless struggle that will go on to the very last moment of our lives. Nobody is born a Warrior, in exactly the same way that nobody is born an average man. We make ourselves into one or the other - Carlos Castaneda
An old Cherokee told his grand son "My son, there is a battle between two wolves inside us all. one is evil. it is anger, jealousy, greed, resentment, inferiority, lies and ego. The other is Good. it is joy, peace, love, hope, humility, kindness, empathy, & Truth. The boy thought about it and asked, "Grandfather, which wolf wins?" The old man quietly replied, "The one you feed"
