" Always remember that no matter how many times people put you down, no matter how hard they kick you, scream at you, point the finger at you and call you a loser, no matter how many times you get knocked down, always make sure you get back up. There is no better respect than self-respect; they can't take that away. You are the one in charge of your own destiny; no one else. They are but an obstacle for better things to come. Keep moving forward and you will get there. Just believe in yourself for 1 darn minute and say, "I can do this, I... can... do... this." Scream these words loud to yourself, then see and feel the difference."

" Talk is cheap. Walk is silent."
Written in 2007 by Israel Christopher --- Georgia
What I'm trying to get across is, you have people that talk the talk of "I'm gonna do this, I'm gonna do that, I'm gonna be so successful", but the never go and do anything so that's all you hear. On the other hand the people that are walking the walk and living their life long goals are too busy doing what they do without all the wasted energy of talking about what they are "gonna do". It's sort of like actions speak louder than words. People should be simply doing what they want to do not just talking about it. Example: A writer writes. A producer produces. A singer sings. Just do it. No time for fear, hesitation, procrastination, talk and more talk. Either do it, or don't.
