" Players (Workers, Children) know they are important, not when you tell them they are, but when at important times you play them."
Mike Babcock (Coach of the Anaheim Mighty Ducks) --- Submitted by Bob Holbrook --- California
I saw this quote in action. One Mighty Duck player made a mistake that cost the team a goal. He was back on the ice the next shift and made up for his mistake by being in position to score a goal.

" There are two big forces at work, external and internal. We have very little control over external forces such as tornadoes, earthquakes, floods, disasters, illness and pain. What really matters is the internal force. How do I respond to those disasters? Over that I have complete control."

" Others as much they try,
As much they try to put you to misery
Keep your head up
Be positive and work hard
And you will go down in the history...."

No matter what people say or do negatively to bring you down, try never to care. Just work hard and believe in yourself; as if your destined to be one of the greatest, at whatever you do.

" Inspiration comes from others. Motivation comes from within."
Author Unknown --- Submitted by Peter F. --- Ontario, Canada
This quote is on my wall. By going to the gym, and educating myself through magazine articles and tv shows, I now weigh 190 pounds. In 1999, I weighed 295 pounds. I am now an inspiration to smokers and overweight people. I never thought a shy, modest guy like myself would ever become an "inspiration"...but it feels kinda cool.

" Motivation is not the same thing as enthusiasm. When you have no enthusiasm, when you are discouraged, when things look bleakest, and you STILL take action towards your goal--that is motivation."

If you find something in life that you love, stick with it; don't give it up! Last but not least, don't let anyone steal your joy because it's your and it belongs to you."
