" Always set the bar for your goals higher than you think you can jump. If you reach for it and fall, as long as you get up and give it another shot, then you will have accomplished more than you ever thought was possible. And the day that you do achieve that goal, it will be the best feeling in the world."

My coach told me this when I was having a hard time believing in myself. He said that he wasn't ever going to give up on me until the day that I gave up on myself, and those words are what kept me going. Just believe and you can do amazing things.March 28, 2007
" When you look at the stars on a clear night, their beauty strikes us with awe. And although the stars appear the same distance away, they are all spread out over a massive distance. Some stars are not so far away, others millions and millions of light years away. When we make even small goals and work hard toward them, and eventually achieve them, we are in fact reaching for stars. Big goals and small goals only differ in the fact that the furthest star takes a longer journey to reach. Remember when you work hard toward any of your goals, think of them as reaching for stars, for stars make the night a thing of beauty and achieving our goals takes us to those stars."
