" There are two kinds of people in the world. There are people that complain about nothing ever changing and there are those that notice a need and affect the changes necessary! What do you want to be?"
Author Unknown --- Submitted by Wayne Robertson USMC
I doubt I am the first person to use those words but it is something that I tell people on a daily basis. I think it is something that more people in the world need to hear. A lot of people say I am a motivating person but it takes more than strapping on a smile and saying it's going to be ok. I strongly believe that if something is messed up you can either live with it or do something about it.

" You don't declare yourself a somebody, your actions and deeds will."
Written in 2001 by Bai Maleiha Candao --- Philippines
I want to stress that the real essence of leadership doesn't come from lip service but from sincere actions and deeds.

" A good coach loves the sport of gymnastics but a great coach loves their gymnasts more."
Copyright © 2002 Sheilamariee L. Wells
The above is my reply when I am asked,"How do you get them to focus and trust you as a coach?" I wanted to share to help all gymnastics coaches and kids because it's a tough sport and anything passed on to help is my goal.

Words of a good speaker can also go unnoticed if one is not willing to listen to them carefully. This is from personal experience and I was a listener during that episode.

" If you are the best at something, it is your sole purpose in life to make others better - thus you will never live without a challenge."
Copyright © 1990 Toni Kusiak
I thought of this after hearing about one of our astronauts who went to the moon and came back to earth and wondered what can I now do after doing that? I also believe he had a breakdown. I thought no matter what you do there is always something else you can accomplish, if not personally then by teaching others to be better.

This is my personal principle in life. When everything else around us is negative, we must STAND UP TO BE POSITIVE.

" Sentimentality is a false and distracting emotion. To dwell on the past is to place value and importance on what was not necessarily as you choose to remember. To live entirely for the future is to disregard what needs to be addressed today. Here and now is what matters: here and now is the only truth."
Written in 2008 by Hannah Leach --- United Kingdom
This is based on some very good advice once given: It's when you think too much about the past and future that you become overwhelmed and depressed. Living for today is the only way.

" Do what you love to do and give it your very best. Whether it's business or baseball, or the theater, or any field - if you don't love what you're doing and you can't give it your best, get out of it. Life is too short. You'll be an old man before you know it."
Al Lopez
