    " The great difference between those who succeed and those who fail does not consist in the amount of work done by each but in the amount of intelligent work. Many of those who fail most ignominiously do enough to achieve grand success but they labor haphazardly at whatever they are assigned, building up with one hand to tear down with the other. They do not grasp circumstances and change them into opportunities. They have no faculty for turning honest defeats into telling victories. With ability enough and ample time, the major ingredients of success, they are forever throwing back and forth an empty shuttle and the real web of their life is never woven."

    WORK
    " If you have work you are blessed. Work is a religion and the work place is the temple, and your job is the prayer. If you work all your problems disappear. You have food, you have a home, you have a family, you have friends etc. If you work on the work you love, it is not work, it is a recreation. If you choose the work you love, you will never have to work even one single day in your life. If you work and sweat, all your poison in your body gets burned out and you are left with a clean healthy body. If you have an ailment or sickness, get up and do some work and soon you will be cured. If you work you gain real wisdom and your life gets easier. If you work, you understand other people. If you don't have work, become a volunteer and discover the pleasure of work. If you work you leave behind a legacy, therefore, let us all get up in the morning and get to work."

    Life is more than just winning and losing,
    more than just fortune and fame...
    For when you believe in yourself,
    and dream big...anything is possible.

    Hard work, determination and a big smile are the key elements of success,
    and by pouring your heart into everything you do, greater fulfillment will be yours.

    Run like you've never run before. Forget about times...forget about records....pour your heart into Saturday and when it's all said and done, you can smile and say, I left it all in that smelly, bug infested park!

Success is in improving, thus never complete. Success is our ability to raise our targets, performance and goals. Success is in moving up and not how many valleys and peaks you encounter. Success is not a comparison between our performance or achievements versus someone else."
