What Do You Want?

Day 236 “[One] of the principal reasons why so many fail to get what they want is because they do not definitely know what they want, or because they change their wants almost every day.” “Know what you want and continue to want it. You will get it if you combine desire with faith. TheContinue reading “What Do You Want?”

Expect Good Things

Day 235 “We can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses.” – Abraham Lincoln Writing about the Olympic Creed reminded me of something I read long ago – an optimist’s creed. Optimism is about expectation. The Universe responds to our thoughts and beliefs, so it delivers whatever you expect. If you expect badContinue reading “Expect Good Things”

Rohtak to Rio

Day 231 “You were born a winner, a warrior, one who defied the odds by surviving the most gruesome battle of them all – the race to the egg. And now that you are a giant, why do you even doubt victory against smaller numbers and wider margins? The only walls that exist are thoseContinue reading “Rohtak to Rio”

Represent Yourself

Day 230 “Champions are not the ones who always win races – champions are the ones who get out there and try. And try harder the next time. And even harder the next time. ‘Champion’ is a state of mind. They are devoted. They compete to best themselves as much if not more than theyContinue reading “Represent Yourself”

Got Your Back

Sometimes they just need a little nudge, a little direction, a little support, a little coaching, and the greatest things can happen.” – Pete Carroll As the saying goes…It takes a village. Like I said in yesterday’s post, children need support and encouragementContinue reading “Got Your Back”
