“Challenge? Just Do It!”

“As someone who has faced as much disappointment as most people, I’ve come to trust not that events will always unfold exactly as I want, but that I will be fine either way.  I trust that the challenges we face in life are always lessons that serve our soul’s growth.”     (Marianne Williamson)



“How does a person make a difference?  The history of the world is simply a chronicle of the deeds of a small number of ordinary people who had extraordinary levels of commitment.” (Anthony Robbins)



“If you get caught up in things over which you have no control, it will adversely affect those things over which you have control.”     (John Wooden)



“When someone offers you a challenge, don’t think of all the reasons why you can’t do it.  Instead, say, ‘Yes!’  Then figure out how you’ll get it done.”     (Katherine Hudson, W. H. Brady Company)



“Monuments are a hoax!

A conspiracy designed by bureaucrats and construction companies to draw you away from the important places.  The ones found off the roads, atop the mountains, amidst the rivers, and mostly by chance.

Marked not by placards and statues, but by epiphanous moments that give you the sense that no one, including yourself, may ever find this place again.  These are the places worth seeking out.

And as you pass the landmark-makers putting up their guardrails and snack shops, give a friendly wave. 

And walk on to the place they’ve never been.

Just do it.”     (Nike)
