Victories in life come through our ability to work around and over
the obstacles that cross our path.
Marvin J. Ashton

Think of something you enjoy or experience today
that once was merely a goal.
Many obstacles may have intervened in your pursuit of its attainment,
yet now it's part of your life.
As you follow your new dreams
and encounter obstacles, remember:
you've been through this before, and you've succeeded!

The human spirit is truly unconquerable.
The will to win -
the will to succeed, to shape one's life, to take control -
can be harnessed only when you decide what you want
and believe that no challenge, no problem,
no obstacle can keep you from it.
Obstacles are merely a call to strengthen your resolve
to achieve your worthwhile goals.

"Giant Steps"
Anthony Robbins

Patience and perseverance have a magical effect
before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish.

John Quincy Adams

History has demonstrated that the most notable winners
usually encountered heartbreaking obstacles before they triumphed.
They won because they refused to become discouraged by their defeats.

Have you ever thought that someone somewhere
may be pleading with Heavenly Father for help,
and you may be the one chosen
to help answer that prayer?
If we're willing,
He'll use us.
You likely have no idea
how often you rescue someone.

Mary Ellen Edmunds

Many philosophers over the ages have reminded us that this is the only life we have.
Every day is a new chance to make a fresh start.
It doesn't matter how old you are, or how messed up your life might have been up to now,
you've just awakened to a new day,
 that new chance you've been waiting for to get it right.
Don't you dare get down on yourself for anything you've done in the past that didn't work.
You can't go back and do it over.
We've been given this new day, by the grace of God, to make with it what we will.
Count your blessings ... every last one of them ...
and then go forward with a burning desire
and a determination to make this life the most awesome it can be.
It's within your power to change and create your life into whatever you want it to be.
And don't forget to forgive yourself along the way for the mistakes you'll inevitably make.
They're all a part of this wonderful thing we call

Jace Carlton

One life on this earth is all that we get,
whether it is enough or not enough,
and the obvious conclusion would seem to be
that at the very least we are fools if we do not live it
as fully and bravely and beautifully as we can.

Frederick Buechner


So ... who are you ... really?
Think about it.

"That's one small step for man ...
one giant leap for mankind."
Neil Armstrong
American Astronaut

One step beyond where you are right now
is somewhere you've never been.
It's fresh and new, ready for you to make with it what you will.
The future holds a promise and an opportunity for you
that's unlike anything you've ever seen before.
Take that step!
And welcome to your future!

Opportunities are never lost,
they are just passed on to those who are ready.
And because you never know when that spotlight is going to hit,
you better be at the top of your game and shine blindingly bright
when it does!
Elizabeth Nicchio


Every adversity, every failure, every heartache carries with it
the seed of an equal or greater benefit.

To improve the golden moment of opportunity
and to catch the good that is within our reach,
