    Every endeavor turns into a success,
    When the work is transformed into a zeal,
    Every pinnacle can be climbed, in excess
    With the dogged determination of steel.
    Think of phoenix, think of the goal,
    Troubles are fleeting, they never exist longer,
    In fact they are, motivating factors in total,
    Rise above all, and raise to be stronger.

    " Life is a game of chances. The ones you don't take are the ones you miss out on. The chances you do take, even if you lose in the end, you learn more from mistakes and misfortunes than not taking the chance to begin with. So who is to say you lost in that game of chance? Who is to say, to take a chance is to lose? There is only one person who can make that choice... you!"

    Take life as it comes and take the chances life presents to you.

    " The greatest challenge for me has been overcoming other people's perceptions and learning not to take things personally, which I have learned. Every time there's a problem, don't take it personally. Don't think it's just because you're who you are. It's not always because you're a woman. It's not always because you're an African-American. It may be just their problem. ... When you're positive and optimistic, you eventually attract positive and optimistic people to you and the negative people will go."
    Pamela McCauley-Bell --- Submitted by Dave Kuch --- Ontario, Canada
    I personally like this quote because I myself tend to worry a lot and with time have learned not to take people's opinions personally, instead to ignore any negative people and comments and to stay strong, positive and optimistic about life. Moving past the many hurdles in life may be difficult, such as the one demonstrated in this quote, yet the many benefits you will get from overcoming such a challenge is highly rewarding.
