I collect motivational sayings and post them all over the wall in my workout room (as soon as my son moved out I took over his bedroom!) Every morning when I go in there to exercise I see all of these motivational quotes and photos, and it reinvigorates me.

NEF (No Excuses, Finish)
You are better than you think you are and you can do more than you think you can.
Google "Motivational Quotes" or open a book of poetry and find one about Spring or Life! I turn to Buddhist writings and find something about breaking through obstacles like Faith has to be strengthened daily: A sword in the hands of a coward is useless!--Nichiren (12th C. Buddhist reformer) 414
READ motivational; upbeat material each day
