Let yourself

You will accomplish no more, and no less, than what you allow yourself to accomplish. There's virtually no limit to what can be done. How far will you let yourself go?

How focused will you allow yourself to be? How much effectiveness will you permit yourself to have? What difference will you let yourself make?

How early will you let yourself get started? How long will you allow yourself to continue? How many obstacles will you let yourself overcome?

You know what you want. You have every ability and opportunity to reach it.You know what you can do. Get out of your own way, and let yourself do it.

-- Ralph Marston

Creativity

Creativity can solve almost any problem.

The creative act, the defeat of habit by originality, overcomes everything.

-- George Lois

Equality

I am who I am.

I don't have to change who I am to be equal to anyone.

-- Kay Coles James

Right

Do not always prove yourself to be the one in the right.

The right will appear. You need only give it a chance.

-- C. H. Fowler

Principles

Without ambition one starts nothing.

Without work one finishes nothing.

The prize will not be sent to you.

You have to win it.

The man who knows how will always have a job.

The man who also knows why will always be his boss.

As to methods there may be a million and then some, but principles are few.

The man who grasps principles can successfully select his own methods.

The man who tries methods, ignoring principles, is sure to have trouble.

-- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Respect

"Talent you're born with. Knowledge is learned.

Respect ... you have to earn that."

--Anonymous

"It's not what we put in our mouths that defile us . . . rather it's what comes out of our mouths."

--Anonymous

Encouragement

Most of us, swimming against the tides of trouble the world knows nothing about, need only a bit of praise or encouragement -- and we will make the goal.

-- Jerome P. Fleishman

Opportunity

The pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity. The optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.

-- Winston Churchill

Genius

True genius resides in the capacity for evaluation of uncertain, hazardous, and conflicting information.

-- Winston Churchill

Shine your light

If the world around you seems too hectic and frenzied, be extra calm, peaceful and patient.

If the world around you seems too greedy and selfish, that's the time to be extra loving, giving and sincerely compassionate.

If the world around you seems too confused and aimless, be extra focused and purposeful.

The world outside reflects back to you the energy you give it. If you don't like what you see, you have every opportunity to change it by changing the way you are.

When you're a beacon in the darkness, your light will shine for a long, long way. When you're the difference that makes the difference, your efforts will bring abundant fruit.

If things around you seem to be at their worst, that's when you can accomplish the most. Shine your positive light in the face of negativity, and you will change your world.

-- Ralph Marston
