“It’s About What is Best / There’s Power Within You”

“It is never about who is right or wrong, it is about what is best.”   (Steve Backley, The Champion in all of US:  12 Rules for Success)



“There are going to be times when you learn more about the world you’re entering and feel defeated when you see the gap between the ideal and the reality.  But that’s something we’ll all face.  The people that face those obstacles and overcome them are people whose dreams come true.”   (Tsugumi Ohba, Bakauman, Volume 3:  Debut and Impatience)



“As the physically weak man can make himself strong by careful and patient training, so the man of weak thoughts can make them strong by exercising himself in right thinking.”   (James Allen, As a Man Thinketh)



“Success is doing what you want to do, when you want, where you want, with whom you want, as much as you want.”   (Anthony Robbins)



“I believe that you’re great, that there’s something magnificent about you. Regardless of what has happened to you in your life, regardless of how young or how old you think you might be, the moment you begin to think properly, there’s something that is within you, there’s power within you, that’s greater than the world.  It will begin to emerge.  It will take over your life.  It will feed you.  It will clothe you.  It will guide you, protect you, direct you, sustain your very existence, if you let it.  Now, that is what I know for sure.”   (Michael Beckwith)



“If you’re not gonna go all the way, why go at all?”   (Joe Namath)
