"Don't look down on anyone unless you are helping them up."
You don't always have to be in the lead...
If you have the heart to come from behind.
Don't give up hope, don't doubt yourself,
And a new strength is what you'll find.
The spirit of competition, the desire to succeed
will always be important for life.
So give your all, everything you've got,
No matter the occasion, through pain and strife.
So step up to the plate, enter the race,
Never be afraid to take your turn.
Because winners are people who just never quit,
And this is a life lesson we all will learn.
Anything is possible, if you think it is worthwhile.
If you're willing to go the distance, to go the extra mile.
With determination and effort, you can often achieve more.
Because you don't always get what you wish, but what you work for.
Dreams can become challenging, but no matter what the cost.
Strive to complete the task before you, and you'll never end up lost.
So bring with you your goals, and leave your doubts behind.
Whether you think you can or can't, you certainly will find.
You'll be right either way--so never quit, and this is why:
You'll never become a failure, until you fail to try.
Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
Lots of things that couldn't be done, have been done.
-Charles Auston Bates
If you think you are beaten, you are.
If you think you dare not, you don’t.
If you like to win but think you can’t, It’s almost a cinch you won’t.
If you think you’ll lose, you’re lost.
For out in the world we find, success begins with a person’s will. It’s all in the state of mind.
If you think you are out classed, you are.
You’ve got to think high to rise.
You’ve got to be sure of yourself, before you can ever win the prize.
Life’s battles don’t always go to the stronger or faster man.
But, sooner or later, the one who wins is the one who thinks he can.**********
When you have worked so hard to follow a dieters way
And you fought to win a victory each day.
But one more time you went astray
When you have tried so hard to yourself to be true
And do the things that you know you should do,
But once again you failed to come through
When the road to success seemed much too long
And each temptation was oh so strong
And once again you gave in to wrong
When you have told your friends what you planned to do
And trusted them to help you through
But soon discovered it is up to you
When you know you must be physically fit,
But your hope seems gone and you are stuck in a pit
That is not the time for you to quit
When the week seems long and successes few
And at weigh in time you are feeling blue,
Remember tomorrow is just for you
To start again means a victory is been won
And starting over again means a race well run
And starting over again proves it can be done
So do not just sit there
"Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind."
"Consult not your fears, but your hopes and dreams. Think not about your frustrations, but about your unfulfilled potential. Concern yourself not with what you tried and failed in, but with what is still possible for you to do."
-Pope John XXIII
"It matters not the number of years in your life. It is the life in your years."
Being committed to some goal in your life, a sense of having a mission, a purpose, even a calling-is a very motivating, very comforting thing. Some people's mission steps up to greet them, others have to hunt theirs down.
