Karl Jaspers

There is no security on this earth, there is only opportunity.

General Douglas MacArthur

Where there is life, there is hope. Where there are hopes, there are dreams. Where there are vivid dreams repeated, they become goals. Goals become the action plans and game plans that winners dwell on in intricate detail, knowing that achievement is almost automatic when the goal becomes an inner commitment. The response to the challenges of life -- purpose -- is the healing balm that enables each of us to face up to adversity and strife.

Dennis Waitley

Henry David Thoreau

Almost all of the world-class athletes and other peak performers are visualizers. They see it , they feel it, they experience it before they actually do it. They began with the end in mind. You can do it in every area of your life. Before performance, a sales presentation, a difficult confrontation, or the daily challenge of meeting a goal, see it clearly, vividly, relentlessly, over and over again. Create an internal "comfort zone''. Then, when you get into the situation, it isn't foreign. It doesn't scare you.

Stephen Covey

Go ahead, make my day.

Harry Callahan, Sudden Impact (1983)

But inaction itself is a kind of action, and it has consequences. Consistently and absolutely maintained, inaction would necessarily lead to swift ruin , it would be a form of suicide. A refusal to enter into the world is a refusal to meet the challenge of reality which darkly demands that I dare and find out what will happen. In my situation I bear responsibility for what occurs because I do not intervene , if I can do something and I don't do it, I am guilty of the consequences of my inaction.

Karl Jaspers

All of the most successful human beings I've know were inwardly at war with themselves. Their turmoil was at least as great as our own, and sometimes greater. What distinguished these leaders was not some inner peace but rather how they had learned to organize their lives around a noble ambition and to focus on it.

Walter Anderson

People can't live with change if there's not a changeless core inside them. The key to the ability to change is a changeless sense of who you are, what you are about and what you value.

Stephen Covey

The worst part of life is waiting. The best part of life is having someone worth waiting for.
