You can't out-train a bad diet

Cultivate optimism and let it drive you forward.

Health is not a matter of chance. It is a matter of choice.

We can't control the waves, but we can learn to surf

Turn a setback into a comeback

Success requires backbone, not wishbone

Never be afraid or hesitant to step off the accepted path and head off
in your own direction, if your heart says it's right for you. Believe
that you will ultimately succeed at whatever you do, and never
forget the value of Persistence, Discipline, and Determination. You are
meant to be whatever you dream of becoming.
-Edmund O'Neill emoticon

When nobody else celebrates you... CELEBRATE yourself.
When nobody compliments you... COMPLIMENT yourself.
It's not up to other people to keep you encouraged.
Encouragement should come from the INSIDE. -Joel Olsteen

BELIEVE that you can run (walk, bike, row, swim, etc.) farther or faster.
BELIEVE that you are young enough, old enough, strong enough, and
so on to accomplish EVERYTHING you want to do.
Don't let worn-out beliefs stop you from moving beyond your SELF.
-John Bingham

BELIEVE in your capabilities and turn those tiny sparks of possibilities
into FLAMES of achievement, because you CAN! emoticon emoticon
