Think for a Moment

"Think for a moment. Is there a difference between being interested in something and being committed to it? You bet there is. Many times people say things like, 'Gosh, I really would like to make more money' or 'I'd like to be closer to my kids' or 'You know, I'd really like to make a difference in the world'. But that kind of statement is not a commitment at all. It's merely stating a preference, saying, I'm interested in having this happen, if I don't have to do anything. That's not power! It's a weak prayer made without even the faith to launch it."

-- Anthony Robbins

You see, ten years from now you will surely arrive. The question is: Where?"

Raise Your Standard

When people ask what really changed my life eight years ago, I tell them that absolutely the most important thing was changing what I demanded of myself. I wrote down all the things I would no longer accept in my life, all the things I would no longer tolerate and all the things that I aspired to becoming."

Story of Faith and Vision

The Catalina Island is twenty-one miles away from the coast of California, and many people have taken the challenge to swim across it. On July 4th 1952, Florence Chadwick stepped into the water off Catalina Island to swim across to the California coast. She started well and on course, but later fatigue set in, and the weather became cold. She persisted, but fifteen hours later, numb and cold, she asked to be taken out of the water.

After she recovered, she was told that she had been pulled out only half a mile away from the coast. She commented that she could have made it, if the fog had not affected her vision and she would have just seen the land. She promised that this would be the only time that she would ever quit.

She went back to her rigorous training. And two months later she swam that same channel. The same thing happened. The fatigue set in, and the fog obscured herview, but this time she swam with faith and vision of the land in her mind. She knew that somewhere behind the fog was land. She succeeded and became the first woman to swim the Catalina Channel. She even broke the
men's record by two hours.

To those who love us best."
