“At you look back on the year gone by, think of missed opportunities not with regret, but as a reminder of what you learned that you can use to seize the opportunities ahead."

"Direct yourself, consistently and persistently, toward the places, situations, experiences, people and results that you wish to have in your life.
You have more than enough energy, opportunities and ability, when focused in a specific direction, to achieve whatever you choose.
So choose to choose. Decide how your life will be, this hour, this day, this year, this century, and live the true richness of making it happen."
-- Ralph Marston
