Watch your thoughts; they become words.
Watch your words; they become actions.
Watch your actions; they become habits.
Watch your habits; they become character.
Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.
Each of us will one day be judged by our standard of life,
not by our standard of living; by our measure of giving,
not by our measure of wealth; by our simple goodness,
not by our seeming greatness.
~William Arthur Ward~
Faith is taking the first step even when
you don't see the whole staircase.
~Martin Luther King~
The message is clear:
plan with attitude,
prepare with aptitude,
participate with servitude,
receive with gratitude,
and this should be enough to separate
you from the multitudes.
~Krish Dhanam ~
A winner is big enough to admit his mistakes,
smart enough to profit from them,
and strong enough to correct them.
You don't have to be great to start,
but you have to start to be great.
~Joe Sabah ~
Regardless of your lot in life,
you can build something beautiful on it.
Decision is the spark that ignites action.
Until a decision is made nothing happens.
~Wilfred A. Peterson ~
You might not be what you say you are,
but what you say, you are.
If you don't think every day is a good day,
just try missing one.
~Cavett Robert ~
Never lose sight of the fact that the most
important yardstick of your success
will be how you treat other people.
What I hear I forget.
What I see I remember.
What I do, I know.
I bring you the gift of these four words:
I believe in you.
The quality of a person's life is in direct proportion
to their commitment to excellence,
regardless of their chosen field of endeavor.
It is a funny thing about life;
if you refuse to accept anything but
the best you very often get it.
~W. Somerset Maugham~
He who sows courtesy reaps friendship,
and he who plants kindness gathers love.
Life is like a game of tennis;
the player who serves well seldom loses.
Dreams get you started;
discipline keeps you going.
Unless you try to do something beyond
what you have already mastered,
you will never grow.
~Ronald E. Osborn~
You can have everything in life you want
if you will just help enough other people
get what they want.
