" When you feel you've pushed your life to the limit, and you can't go any further, give that obstacle one last push because that might be the one that gets you through that heavy door to success. If you don't try that one last time, you may never know. Go for it."

" You never soar too high when you fly with your own wings."
Author Unknown --- Submitted by Mel W. --- Ohio
This was just something thought of one day when I was sitting on my front porch (near the airport) and I was watching all the planes take off. I don't think it is a quote from anything but I could be wrong.

" I was once told, "What your mind perceives to believe it achieves." This keeps me going throughout the day, because whatever you want in your life think it, believe it and it will happen!!"

" I have learned that success lies not in the destination, but in how you choose to take your journey. Success is living with integrity - in relentless pursuit of whatever it is that you are truly passionate about. What does this mean? It means that if you have spent every moment of your life striving to realize your absolute full potential in every way possible, then, and only then, can you consider yourself a success. Don't ever shy away from this success for fear of stepping outside your comfort zone or challenging the norm."

" Start with your head; finish with your heart."
Author Unknown --- Submitted by Brian B. --- Illinois
One of our slogans for our cross-country team this year was to "run with your heart". About the third mile of every race, I would be repeating this quote in my head, and it always seemed to help me push through the pain and allowed me to give it my all --- right through the finish line.

" WHO IS YOUR OPPONENT? Your opponent is never really the player on the other side of the net, or the swimmer in the next lane, or the team on the other side of the field, or even the bar you must high jump. Your opponent is YOURSELF, that negative internal voice, that deludes you! Your level of determination... Your continuing commitment to strategize and perfect your situation and most importantly the willingness to allow yourself the power to be in control of that voice."
