"Don't let the fear of the time it will take to accomplish something stand in the way of your doing it. The time will pass anyway; we might just as well put that passing time to the best possible use." -- Earl Nightingale, speaker, author


"Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great." --Mark Twain


"Action may not always bring happiness; but there is no happiness without action." -- Benjamin Disraeli


"Dream lofty dreams, and as you dream, so shall you become. Your vision is the promise of what you shall one day be; your ideal is the prophecy of what you shall at last unveil."--James Allen


"Our real problem is not our strength today; it is rather the vital necessity of action today to ensure our strength tomorrow." -- Calvin Coolidge


"Learn how to be happy with what you have while you pursue all that you want." --Jim Rohn


"The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather in a lack of will." -- Vincent T. Lombardi


"You don't have to change that much for it to make a great deal of difference. A few simple disciplines can have a major impact on how your life works out in the next 90 days, let alone in the next 12 months or the next 3 years." --Jim Rohn


"Great minds must be ready not only to take opportunities, but to make them." –-Colton


“One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon--instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside our windows today.” --Dale Carnegie


"To dream anything that you want to dream. That is the beauty of the human mind. To do anything that you want to do. That is the strength of the human will. To trust yourself to test your limits. That is the courage to succeed." --Bernard Edmonds


“You must take personal responsibility. You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, or the wind, but you can change yourself. That is something you have charge of. You don't have charge of the constellations, but you do have charge of whether you read, develop new skills, and take new classes.” --Jim Rohn


“What the mind of man can conceive and believe, the mind of man can achieve.” --Napoleon Hill author of Think and Grow Rich


"Failure is an opinion. It is either an educational tool for starting over or an excuse breeding tool for saying it's over." -- Doug Firebaugh


“There are four ways, and only four ways, in which we have contact with the world. We are evaluated and classified by these four contacts: what we do, how we look, what we say, and how we say it.” --Dale Carnegie


"Know the true value of time; snatch, seize, and enjoy every moment of it. No idleness, no delay, no procrastination; never put off till tomorrow what you can do today." --Earl of Chesterfield


"People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don't believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and, if they can't find them, make them." -- George Bernard Shaw


"Forget past mistakes. Forget failures. Forget everything except what you're going to do now and do it." -- William Durant


And in closing......I hope everyone dealing with a fitness challenge right now (including myself today) will remember this:

"Continuous effort--not strength or intelligence--is the key to unlocking our potential." --Winston Churchill
