“You Can Decide What You Want”


“Man is asked to make of himself what he is supposed to become to fulfill his destiny.”   (Paul Tillich)


“The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.”   (Walt Disney)


“Be somebody nobody thought you could be.”   (William Chapman)


“It is important that you get clear for yourself that your only access to impacting life is action. The world does not care what you intend, how committed you are, how you feel or what you think, and certainly it has no interest in what you want and don’t want. Take a look at life as it is lived and see for yourself that the world only moves for you when you act.”   (Werner Erhard)


“Accepting responsibility for your life means understanding that YOU are responsible for creating the life you want to live.  If you don’t do it, who else will?  This is a tremendously empowering realization, or at least it was for me. When I realized I was responsible for myself, I stopped making excuses and I stopped waiting for others to help me.  Instead, I started changing my life.  I’ll say it again:  YOU can decide what you want your life to be about.”   (Ryan Murdock)


“What’s the good of living if you don’t try a few things?”   (Charles M. Shulz)
