" Do that which needs to be done."
Author Unknown --- Submitted by K.C. --- Maryland
I just follow this motto whenever I don't want to do something. I tell myself I don't have a choice, it has to be done, just do it. It won't last forever and the more you do this the better you will become at taking on challenges in every part of your life.

" There is nothing as simple as walking - putting one foot in front of the other. Think of situation you are in as a journey (of 1000 miles) - you'll keep putting one foot in front of the other (very basic thing!) until you finish. So when you feel you want to give up in whatever you are doing, remember how easy it is to place one foot in front of the other, how easy it is to take JUST ONE MORE STEP, JUST ONE! Do this, just take ONE MORE STEP, (one more minute, one more round, one more paragraph, JUST ONE MORE); you'll be surprised how much you have covered! Of course after taking this one step, it wouldn't hurt to ask yourself: CAN'T I TAKE JUST ONE MORE? JUST ONE MORE?"
Written in 2009 by Sekola Phakoe --- Lesotho
When you feel weak, just take one more step. Just place one foot in front of the other (just once), think of yourself walking- CAN YOU REALLY NOT DRAG ONE FOOT IN FRONT OF ANOTHER, JUST ONE MORE STEP?

" A dead end is just an opportunity to take a different direction."
Copyright © 2006 Terry McManus
When I was younger and working with friend of mine in the very difficult entertainment industry, I was always impressed by his ability to turn a disappointment into something positive. "Ok... that doesn't work, let's go another way and see where that leads us." Instead of being stopped by the letdowns, he bounced off them and kept going. In the foreword my book, The Canadian Music Industry Primer, I credited him with this sunny attribute.

Every gym-rat on the planet knows this one. Bottom line: if your mind believes that the weight will move, the body delivers... but I apply it in my day-to-day challenges as a means to pump me up.

" The extent to which YOU take responsibility over something is the extent to which YOU take control over it."
Adam Khoo --- Submitted by Yuvan Mohan --- Singapore
I believe many of us blame the situation we are in on external factors. We forget that it is actually us that let these external factors affect us. In these times of recession and uncertainty, it is up to us to choose to feel either excited or gloomy. So people, be positive! Be the agent of change!

" How are you feeling right now? Are you in trouble? You don't love the work that you are asked to do? Are you having personal problems in life? If you have answered yes to any of above questions, you are lucky! Did my reply sound weird? Yes, you are lucky! Why? Because obstacles are faced by an individual who is in motion, not the one who is standing still! Change your thoughts and create your own destiny! He will guide you along the path, but you have to move-on... Don't be afraid if you are moving slowly, fear if you are standing still. Arise, awake, get energetic, think good, do good, be good... and look... miracles will take place. Yes, happiness will come, finding you!"

" When becoming someone, never give up. There are a lot of people that want to get to the same place as you. Even though it's crowded in the middle, there's plenty of space at the top. You might just be that person."
Written in 2008 by Shannon N. --- Alabama
I never really thought about trying to get somewhere, I always thought it was hard and that I was never better than the best person. I heard something similar to this from a professional musician from L.A. that came to my school today, and it inspired me. I hope it makes others think in a different direction of reaching their dreams. =]
