Need some motivation?

“When you have some goal out here that you’re reaching for, stretching for, that takes you out of your comfort zone, you’ll find out some talents and ability you have that you didn’t know you have.”

“Make your dreams become a reality, because otherwise you will be working for someone else to make their dreams a reality”

“What reason can you remember, that you can call on, that you can reach on, that can make you get back up — find that reason!”

“If you’re not where you want to be, if you don’t have what you want to have, it has nothing to do with the system but has everything to do with the fact that you are not making the sacrifice”

“Greatness is a lot of small things done well.  Day after day.”

“It doesn’t take any effort to be a loser.”

“If there is no enemy inside, the enemies outside can do us no harm.”

You Are Known by the Company You Keep


The less you associate with some people, the more your life will improve. Any time you tolerate mediocrity in others, it increases your mediocrity. An important attribute in successful people is their impatience with negative thinking and negative acting people. As you grow, your associates will change. Some of your friends will not want you to go on. They will want you to stay where they are. Friends that don’t help you climb will want you to crawl. Your friends will stretch your vision or choke your dream. Those that don’t increase you will eventually decrease you.

Consider this: Never receive counsel from unproductive people. Never discuss your problems with someone incapable of contributing to the solution, because those who never succeed themselves are always first to tell you how. Not everyone has a right to speak into your life. You are certain to get the worst of the bargain when you exchange ideas with the wrong person. Don’t follow anyone who’s not going anywhere. With some people you spend an evening: with others you invest it. Be careful where you stop to inquire for directions along the road of life. Wise is the person who fortifies his life with the right friendships. If you run with wolves, you will learn how to howl. But, if you associate with eagles, you will learn how to soar to great heights.

A mirror reflects a man’s face, but what he is really like is shown by the kind of friends he chooses.

In Prosperity Our Friends Know Us. In Adversity We Know Our friends.

Never make someone a priority when you are only an option for them.

If you are going to achieve excellence in big things, you develop the habit in little matters. Excellence is not an exception, it is a prevailing attitude..

― Colin Powell

Happiness is a State of Mind

Most folks are about as happy as they make their minds up to be.
