THE OPTIMIST CREED
By Christian D. Larsen

Be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind.

Talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person you meet.

Make all your friends feel there is something in them.

Look at the sunny side of everything.

Be as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.

Forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.

Give everyone a smile.

Spend so much time improving yourself that you have no time left to criticize others.

Be too big for worry and too noble for anger


I "borrowed" this from 100lbslighter.... she had it posted on her SP.

Failure is a detour, not a dead-end street.

If you don't see yourself as a winner, then you cannot perform as a winner.

If you learn from defeat, you haven't really lost.

If you want to reach a goal, you must "see the reaching" in your own mind before you actually arrive at your goal.

All by Zig Ziglar.

Rwilliams - Your post really made me chuckle for 2 reasons. First, being a diabetic my mantra is:

Test, adjust then test again.

Second. I also say it's only temporary to EVERYTHING.

Thanks for that.

OMG, I hate you all! I'm going to spend an entire day copying down all these great quotes! Here's one from me (it's original):

Adjust, adjust, and then adjust some more!

And one of my friends says that this one is my mantra, and she's started using it for her problems):

It's only temporary. (This is an all-purpose thing I say about anything annoying, or a setback, or anything at all. For example, potty training--it's only temporary. Bratty teenagers--it's only temporary. Bad weather--it's only temporary. And on and on! It helps to keep things in perspective.)

Without inspiration the best powers of the mind remain dormant, there is a fuel in us which needs to be ignited with "Sparks."
Johann Gottfried Von Herder

I saw this and thought, whether we are posting on message boards, blogging, tracking our food, working out, offering encouragment, etc., we are all here Sparking together to help fuel each of us with motivation to keep truding the happy road.

If you subscribe to daily e-mails from Sparks you get a motivational quote every day, and I sometimes copy them and post them here.

This last one was today's quote.

“People will do almost anything to stay in their comfort zones. If you want to accomplish anything, get out of your comfort zone. Strive to increase order and discipline in your life. Discipline usually means doing the opposite of what you feel like doing. The easy roads to discipline are 1) setting deadlines, 2) discovering and doing what you do best and what’s important and enjoyable to you and 3) focusing on habits by replacing your bad habits and thought patterns, one-by-one, over time, with good habits and thought patterns.”

-Swedish Proverb

Edited by: OPTIMISTIC46 at: 10/19/2009 (15:56)
There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.

-Kenneth Blanchard

Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great ones make you feel that you, too, can become great.

Consult not your fears but your hopes and your dreams. Think not about your frustrations, but about your unfulfilled potential. Concern yourself not with what you tried and failed in, but with what it is still possible for you to do.
- Pope John XXIII

The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.

Try.
Try again.
Try harder.
Try tomorrow.
Try thinking about what has worked in the past.
Try and ask someone who has done it.
Try and figure out what is not working.
Try it a different way.
Try it once more.
Don't stop trying!

"A man can fail many times, but he isn't a failure until he begins to blame someone else." -- John Burroughs

If you've fallen off the wagon, if you have reached rock bottom, remember "YOU CANNOT FALL OFF THE FLOOR." Just pick yourself up and get going, again.

We only go around once. There's really no time to be afraid. So stop. Try something you’ve never tried. Teach it. Do it. Risk it.

“How do you go from where you are to where you want to be? I think you have to have an enthusiasm for life. You have to have a dream, a goal, and you have to be willing to work for it. Don’t give up, don’t ever give up.”

This isn't a saying but a Spark Member on another team posted this on my page and I wanted to share with everyone.

Survival Kit:

1. Toothpick - to remind you to pick out the good qualities in yourself.

2. Rubber band - to remind you to be flexible: things might not go the way you want
them to today, so be sure to have a Plan B.

3. Pencil - to remind you to list your blessings today.

4. Eraser - to remind you that everyone makes mistakes,
and it's OK...just forget about them and start over.

5. Chewing gum - to remind you that if you stick with it,
you can accomplish anything.

6. Tea bag - to remind you of what Eleanor Roosevelt said; "A woman is like a tea bag.
You never know how strong she is until she gets into hot water." Don't ever forget
how strong you are!

7. A mint...to remind you that you are worth a mint!

If you have made mistakes, there is always another chance for you. You may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing we call "failure" is not the falling down, but the staying down.
~~ Mary Pickford

Of all days, the day on which one has not laughed is surely the most wasted.

Those who believe they can do something and those who believe they can't are both right.
- Henry Ford

Whether the challenge is reaching the moon, sailing around the world, hitting a home run, acing a job interview, or walking again after a stroke, we can usually accomplish what we believe we can. But once we doubt ourselves, success slips beyond our grasp.

The best years of your life are the ones in which you decide your problems are your own. You do not blame them on your mother, the ecology, or the president. You realize that you control your own destiny.
