"If you get properly organized and envision a plan, no competition will be difficult because now you won't be concentrating on others, you will only be consolidating yourself, and that's what makes a winner!"
Written in 2008 by Manjit S. Tendolkar --- India
I made up this quote while I was introspecting my studies. There's a lot of competition around and as I had read somewhere before: "an organized and a well planned effort can even put a genius to shame."

"When I wake up in the morning, I have to decide to either be an example or an excuse."
Author Unknown --- Submitted by Justin D. Hatmaker --- Nevada
In my life, I have faced many difficult challenges. I have not always responded positively to them. I was recently diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and in the course of all the changes I have to make to manage my disease, I have started focusing in all the other areas of my life as well. I have a 6-year-old son and noticed some of my bad behaviors and attitudes being mirrored in him. I heard this quote somewhere, years ago, and it came rushing back to me... I can either be the example for my son to tackle issues head on and do his best or provide the excuse for him to complain, quit, and be lazy whenever things aren't easy or going his way.

"Determination can win over ability any day; you just have to want it bad enough. And when you do, the word impossible becomes nothing but a myth, your dreams become a reality and only then, you have achieved a life worth living, a life that gives hope to others; a life that shows that the possibilities are endless."

"Man is the culture he receives; cultivate yourself to become the man you desire to be, don't just dream about it."
Written in 2008 by Leussa Adrienne --- Cameroon
I saw an amazing young man on TV one day. He lives in a village in the north of Cameroon where they lack the latest technology infrastructures such as TV and the Internet. This young man took the initiative to learn the Japanese language by listening to a program on a foreign radio station. He wrote to the station and received books and other materials and would follow the program every day. On the day I was watching, the Japanese ambassador and his colleagues traveled for kilometers to meet this young man to congratulate him on his achievement. He speaks and writes Japanese fluently.

"In my lifetime, I've come to realize that you can't depend upon other people for what you want and you can't be scared to go out there and get it. You have to dream hard, wish big, and chase after your goals because no one is going to do it for you and even if things don't work out, you'll always be able to say you tried."

Written in 2008 by Piyush Beriwala --- India
Whenever I tried to do something which seemed like an impossible task for a common man, I received strong objections from lots of people, including my close friends and even my family but I went on and on and proved it!

"Attitude is not something. It is EVERYTHING."
Written in 2008 by Pete W. Zafra --- California
We are doing EXTREMELY! "crazy" business in a time when, according to the press, we're supposed to be experiencing the worst Real Estate slump since the great depression. I wonder if that writer has the point-of-view of a "General" in the war room or a Sergeant in the war zone?... Hmmm...
