I never thought to look at Joe Pilates' writings. Thanks for posting. Especially the one about being 70 was interesting.

Here are just a few of my favorite quotes from Joseph Pilates:

“Through the Pilates Method of Body Conditioning this unique trinity of a balanced body, mind, and spirit can ever be attained. Self confidence follows.”

“If your spine is inflexibly stiff at 30, you are old. IF it is completely flexible at 60, you are young.”

Patience and persistence are vital qualities in the ultimate successful accomplishment of any worthwhile endeavor.”

“We retire too early and we die too young, our prime of life should be in the 70’s and old age should not come until we are almost 100.”

“To achieve the highest accomplishments within the scope of our capabilities in all walks of life we must constantly strive to acquire strong, healthy bodies and develop our minds to the limits of our ability.”

Those who make the worst use of their time are the first to complain of its shortness. --Jean de la Bruyere

A life of excellence
+++++++++++++++++++

Excellence is not attained with a one-time, quick and
isolated tactic. A life of excellence is a life in which
there is, every day, a renewed commitment to excellence.

A life of excellence is a life of caring, about your own
concerns to be sure, but also about matters that go far
beyond yourself. A life of excellence comes from a
continuously renewed focus on the big picture.

The actions that build excellence naturally flow from an
attitude that sincerely values excellence. Life is yours to
live as you choose, and in every moment, on every day, you
can choose to live it with excellence.

With a commitment to excellence, you can find the goodness
and value in any situation. With a commitment to excellence,
you can absolutely make life even better than it already is.

You are enormously blessed with the priceless gift of life.
Take every opportunity to live it at the highest, most
loving, compassionate, productive and excellent level.

Commit to a life of excellence now, and always. Anything
less is not worthy of the magnificent, unique person you
know you are.

Ralph Marston

The substance of success
+++++++++++++++++++

Yes, it's possible that you could fail, but that's not a
reason to avoid the effort. In fact, it's a solid reason to
go ahead and make the effort.

The only time there's a possibility of real, meaningful
success is when there's also the possibility of failure. If
it's a foregone conclusion that something will happen, it's
not really an accomplishment when it does.

The substance of success is in getting through the
challenges to make the difficult achievements happen. The
bigger the challenges you face, the more valuable your
success will be.

Instead of wishing for an easier task, see the immense value
in the challenge that's in front of you. You can figure out
how to do it, and you can get it done, so get busy and do
just that.

Every challenge, every difficult situation, is an
opportunity to make a pivotal positive difference. Grab that
opportunity every time it comes along, and you'll create a
great profusion of value in your world.

Relish the challenges, and find delight in your ability to
navigate your way through them. With every twist and turn,
you're creating more substance of success.

Ralph Marston

There's one key factor that will make this New Year the best
one ever. That important factor is your attitude.
