OCTOBER 2008

" Whenever you fail, don't ever think that you failed because you are not worthy. If you have come this far, then there must be something in you that brought you this far; a fire that pushed you on, so put some more gas on the fire and push on. Get up, dust yourself off and come right back, not only with a vengeance but also with a plan to win."
A Captain in the Indian Army --- Submitted by Prosenjit Mitra --- India
I went to the Services Selection Board interview just a couple of months back, one of the toughest interviews that selects OFFICERS for the Indian Armed Forces. Unfortunately, I was one of the many who were rejected. We all were feeling very low. In a briefing, after the announcement of the result, this is what the Captain said. He concluded by saying, "We sincerely hope to see you next time...in UNIFORM, BESIDE US..." Somehow these words are acting like gas on the fire and is propelling me on...

" Life always gives you a second chance... you should have the guts to snatch the rest."
Written in 2008 by Saad Ahmed Shaikh --- India
I don't know if it's been mentioned by anyone earlier or I have just thought about it? But one thing is bright and clear, this thought generated in my mind when I was in a big fix. This thought gave me the determination to solve those issues. I would like everyone out here to benefit from this thought.

" GET UP! Please get up and don't give up! Know that challenges are part of any life that will achieve something great.

"Show me someone who has done something worthwhile and I'll show you someone who has overcome adversity", says Lou Holtz.

Overcome your challenges, breakthrough them and don't breakdown. Remember that God is doing something for you and in you.

"When God wants to make a mushroom, he does it overnight but when He wants to make a giant oak, He takes a hundred years. Great souls are grown through struggles, storms and seasons of suffering."

"The man who wins may have been counted out several times but he didn't hear the referee", says H.E. Jansen.

So Get Up! Don't quit! Don't give up!"

" Life is not a relay race; we don't have the same starting point nor do we finish at the same time. Just because someone else got there before you doesn't mean you are late."
Author Unknown --- Submitted by Biola Alatishe --- Nigeria
I chose this quote because it reminds me that delay is not final; we have our different time spans in achieving our goals and dreams. Just because someone else got there faster doesn't mean he's better.

Albert E.N. Gray --- Submitted by Eknath Dhauskar --- India
Here the author tries to tell us that although people may don't like to do the things which are required for success, they do. And this attitude makes them successful.

I am a single parent/woman who is going through many life changing things. I'm the one in this quote that still hasn't given up. I know there are many who can relate.

" The outer layers of a person only define or represent the vehicle/body they operate. The outer layers are easily offended and quick to embrace emotional things whether it's happy or sad. A person can only be who they really are when their soul shines through the thin and fragile outer layers. The Soul of a person is who they truly are, when the outer layer is removed. Remove your outer layers with yourself and in life so that you can be the best that you are."

Don't be afraid to be you. Being you is what makes you so unique and outstanding. Be the best at being you!

" TODAY IS THE DAY... Make your time useful and excel in something you have dreamed for."
Copyright © 2008 Phil Dellibovi
I was walking into work one day and grabbed a pen. I was frustrated with my job and where my career is going. I have a lot of spare time at my job so I decided to use that spare time to further my education and start my steps towards my dreams. So I grabbed a piece of paper and wrote down the first thing that popped in my head. Now I post it next to my computer at work.

Hi friends! I'm a soccer player and when I step on the field to practice, this quote makes me work harder. When I think there are better players than me, at this moment practicing harder than me, it makes me burn with desire to compete against the best there is out there!

" In your tireless efforts to achieve your dreams, if the journey becomes very painful, please DO NOT QUIT OR GIVE UP. Something great is going to happen and you will receive the rewards for your efforts. Remember the pain is unbearable to the mother just before the baby is born."
Author Unknown --- Submitted by Sreemoy Ghose --- India
Many years ago I came across a quote that was very similar to this. I do not remember the name of the author. This has been one single quote that has kept me motivated all these years. I have started believing that rewards come only when I do not give up or quit.

" The samurai Sword is a thing of beauty, its blade unsurpassed by any other sword. Those that wield it have earned un-paralleled respect and honour. In times of our greatest difficulty, we look for the sharpest edge to end our pain and suffering, however like that sword, it is through the heat and fire and years of being beaten that the finest swords in the world are made. If you remember, when you feel that there is no hope, if you only wish for the end to take you, remember that you are the samurai sword and nothing can stop you after you get through this."
Author Unknown --- Submitted by John Proctor --- United Kingdom
It is a quote to help in times when you feel there is no hope. It is there to remind you that when all is done, you are an unstoppable blade.
