" Life is like a book with many different chapters, some tell of tragedy and others of triumph. Some chapter are dull and ordinary, others intense and exciting. The key to being a success in life is to never stop on a difficult page, to never quit on a tough chapter. Champions have the courage to keep turning the pages because the know a better chapter lies ahead."

Don't undermine your worth by comparing yourself with others. It is because we are different that each of us is special in his or her own way.

This is one of the phrases that my mother has always said. They may only be two simple words, but they are great words to live by. She always told us the world was not going to stop and come to us, but we had to COWBOY UP and go after what we wanted. She is extremely loving and extremely wise!

" Life is like surfing. Sometimes we all get tied up on looking and waiting for that perfect wave to come along. While doing this, we forget that surfing is not about finding that awesome wave, it's about enjoying the moment, loving what you're doing, going with the flow and making the best of what's been given to you."

" Have courage when times may fail. Be not afraid to make a change. Take a chance on the inevitable. Make a difference in everything you do. Be the person who you were meant to be. Success is not born; it is made by those who seek to see the difference in everything, turning the impossible into a possible success."

This is on the back of one of my power cheerleading sweatshirts. In order to win or succeed at anything, you have to try. You never know what you can do until you try. Never say "can't" because can't means "won't try." I'm a gymnastics coach, and a lot of kids say, "I can't", and at the gymnastics club, "can't" is known as a bad word, because it is so negative. When they say can't, I tell them to say in their head, "yes I can", and that does make a difference, because if they believe in themselves, then they can do anything they set their mind to and so can everyone else. Remember, "Not winning isn't the worst of failures, not to have tried is the true failure."
