Expect Setback

"You'll experience setbacks and delays along the way, and this is to be expected, so don't feel discouraged by them. A setback or delay is not failure as much as a signal that you're going back to what's familiar, if only to find out you don't have to do that anymore."

Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."

To Be Winner

"Winners take chances like everyone else,
They fear failing, but they refuse to let fear control them.

Winners don't give up,
When life gets tough, they hang in until the going gets better.

Winners are flexible.
They realize there is more than one way and they are willing to try others.

Winners know they are not perfect.
They respect their weaknesses while making the most of their strengths.

Winners fall, but they don't stay down.
They stubbornly refuse to let a fall keep them from climbing.

Winners don't blame fate for their failures,
Nor luck for their successes.

Winners accept responsibility for their lives.

Winners are positive thinkers who see good in all things.
From the ordinary, they make the extraordinary.

Winners believe in the path they have chosen even when it's hard,
Even when others can't see where they are going.

Winners are patient.
They know a goal is only as worthy as the effort that's required to achieve it.

Winners are people like you.
They make this world a better place to be."
