Who you want to be ?

I saw this today via Positive Thoughts and thought it was great!

What we are contributes much more to our happiness than what we have. . . .
What we are in ourselves, what accompanies us when we are alone, what no one can give us or take away, is obviously more essential to us than everything we have in the way of possessions, or even what we may be in the eyes of the world.

Arthur Schopenhauer

We should know what our convictions are, and stand for them.
Upon one's own philosophy, conscious or unconscious,
depends one's ultimate interpretation of facts.
Therefore it is wise to be as clear as possible
about one's subjective principals.
As we are, so will be our ultimate truth.

Carl Jung

Material possessions will rust away, wear away, or depreciate,
but your inner resources--character--must never depreciate.
In seeking success you must also seek fulfillment.
Ask yourself not only what you want to be, but who you want to be.

Procrastination.......Do you suffer from it?!?!?!

"Procrastination is the fear of success. People procrastinate because they are afraid of the success that they know will result if they move ahead now. Because success is heavy, carries a responsibility with it, it is much easier to procrastinate and live on the "someday I'll" philosophy." ~ Denis Waitley

I love this Quote......Procrastination can hurt/hinder so many people. If you have not picked up the following book yet, and you are a procrastinator.......DO IT NOW!!! It is "The Procrastinator's Handbook" by Rita Emmett

I will add, I can't help but laugh when it comes to a post on this subject and someone is telling you do something....your thought may very well be "I will do it tomorrow, or next week." Let me tell you, THAT very thought is why you need to read this book!!!

Give it all, No Matter What!

Wow is all I can say. Amazing video, it's an old one, but really makes you think!!

Check it out! We all need to ask ourselves what we will do to "Finish the Race." As long as we don't quit, we will ALWAYS finish the race!!!

Feel free to share your comments and thoughts!

This is a Great video/audio from the Great John Maxwell.

He says in this video "Realism is a Great Friend in your life." This quote is So True and I think we all need to realize this.

Take a listen, it's a great One Minute!

Determination, No Matter What, No Excuses

Wow…..those three phrases can mean a lot to a lot of different people. For me, and this specific blog post, it is for me personally.

My sister, her best friend, and I have decided to be a part of the “Warrior Dash” this coming September. “Warrior Dash is a Mud-Crawling, Fire-Leaping, Extreme Run from Hell. This fierce running series is held on the most challenging and rugged terrain across the globe. Warriors conquer extreme obstacles, push their limits, and celebrate with kick-ass music, beer and warrior helmets.”

It is 3.18 “Hellish Miles”

Really?!?!?!?!? So for those that know me, you are thinking “wow, really, you couldn’t possibly do this.” For those that don’t, well, you don’t know any better to say yes or no in regards to whether actually do it or not…..

For all of you, I say “YES I CAN, AND I WILL!!!!!”

There is nothing stronger than:
Determination…..I CAN DO IT!!!!
No Matter What…..EXACTLY!!!!
No Excuses……NONE FOR ME!!!!

I WILL DO THE Warrior Dash in September!!!!

It is going to take a LOT of work…But I KNOW I CAN DO IT!!!!

Wish me the Best of Luck… Although, in reality I won’t need it!!!!

Anything is Possible

If there was ever a time to dare, to make a difference,
to embark on something worth doing, IT IS NOW.
Not for any grand cause, necessarily. . .
but for something that tugs at your heart, something that's
your inspiration, something that's your dream.

You owe it to yourself to make your days here count.


Know, though, that things worth doing seldom come easy.
There will be good days.
And there will be bad days.
There will be times when you want to turn around, pack it up,
and call it quits. Those times tell you
that you are pushing yourself, that you are not afraid to learn by trying.


Because with an idea, determination, and the right tools,
you can do great things. Let your instincts, your intellect,
and your heart, guide you.


Believe in the incredible power of the human mind.
Of doing something that makes a difference.
Of working hard.
Of laughing and hoping.
Of lazy afternoons.
Of lasting friends.
Of all the things that will cross your path this year.

The start of something new brings the hope of something great,
