just posted this on my blog. Thought I would share it here.

Thought these were inspiring and I want to remember them each time I get low!

*Edison failed at making the light bulb 4,000 times. Imagine if he had stopped at 3,999.

*Walt Disney was fired from a newspaper because he lacked creativity.

* Martin Luther King was told that his public speaking lacked passion.

* President Lincold lost six elections before he became president (the only election he ever won)

* Marilyn Monroe was told she would not make it as a model or actress. She should settle for a scretary.

* Dr. seuss was rejected by 43 publishing companies.

* The founder of Ford went broke 5 times before succeeding in developing his company.

* Michael Jordon was cut from his high school basketball team.

"The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day...I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it. And so it is with you... we are in charge of our attitudes."

BILLY DONOVAN'S ATTITUDE PLAN

Always making today my best day
Taking pride in a job well done
Treating others with respect
Isolating my negative thoughts
Treating tasks as opportunities
Utilizing my talents every day
Doing the job right the first time
Expecting positive outcomes daily
Speaking well of others every day

Here's one about knowing what your goal is!!

"If you don't know where you're going, you'll end up someplace else." --Yogi Berra

So set those goals--focus on those goals--reach and stretch for those goals, and meet them!

My favorite quote for the past couple of months has been from Star Wars, of all places...Yoda!

"No, try not! Do, or do not...there is no try."

Good one, eh? I'm *trying* to live by that...even in posts and emails. Do it, do it, do it...not I'll *try* to get in a run tomorrow morning, or a ride this afternoon. DO.

Thanks for starting this Terra. I will have to look up some of my favorite quotes and start adding them. I am sure people have great stories to share too.
