    My biggest regret in life is not going for the things I wanted - for whatever reasons. This quote has helped me so much. If you never go for it, you'll never know. If it doesn't work out, at least you tried and now you know. Hope it helps you as much as it helped me. Life's short- take advantage of everything.

    " The secret to success lies in not only wanting to work, but also wanting other people NOT to work."
    Copyright © 2003 Tony Hugill
    The quote itself may sound pretty selfish, but if you think about it, all success really does come from completing work and service projects for other people better than others. (i.e. Michael Jordan practices hours on end and competes every night to play basketball allowing other people to either sit on the bench or enjoy watching him in the process) This quote is dedicated to all the men and women serving our country, who are putting their lives on the line, serving our best interests, not wanting for us to work.
