" Have a strong belief in what you do? If you don't, who will? Do it like it's the only thing you were born for; climb mountains, cross rivers, fight battles for it. Protect your dream whatever the cost. An undying faith in your product starts in believing in it."

I have been thinking of quotes that I can write down and place around the house for my 11-year old son to see as he gets ready for school in the morning. I want to put him in the best frame of mind to take charge of his academic success.

" Today, think highly of yourself. Think big of whom you are. Retrain how you see yourself and others. Retrain how you view your very own abilities and capabilities. Retrain how you view your faith, your hopes and your dreams. Retrain yourself to ask questions and then ask questions of the questions you've just asked. Retrain yourself to do your own research, or your own thinking. Retrain yourself to help others think for themselves rather than always expecting an answer. When you, Retrain your way of thinking - then you, Retrain the world."

" Whatever is your goal, whatever is your dream, just keep going; keep trying, keep pushing, keep pulling, keep fighting. Realize that pain and discomfort WILL be present often enough to get you to think if all of this is really worth it. Realize that sometimes you WILL hear words of discouragement come out from other people's mouths. But when you know in your heart that you CAN achieve your goal, when you know your dream CAN become a reality, you accept these facts; you become aware that they will be a part of your journey. You acknowledge all of this, focus on what you desire AND YOU JUST KEEP GOING."

" You are now at a crossroads. This is your opportunity to make the most important decision you will ever make. Forget your past. Who are you now? Who have you decided you really are now? Don't think about who you have been. Who are you now? Who have you decided to become? Make this decision consciously. Make it carefully. Make it powerfully."

" There is a power under your control that is greater than poverty, greater than the lack of education, greater than all your fears and superstitions combined. It is the power to take possession of your own mind and direct it to whatever ends you may desire."

" Desire, sire, dire times that make you light as flies for the flight to prized skies."
Written in 2007 by Murdaymootoo Kaisaven --- Mauritius
It means that if one sets out to realize one's desires, one may want to give up in the face of obstacles which will be in one's way. However, if one focuses on the desire, that is, the goal, one gets the motivation to make the effort to overcome these obstacles and achieve one's goal (prized skies). Even if one does not reach the goal at least one is nearer to it, than at the start. One has to make an effort despite obstacles which will crop up, just like flies fight gravity, which pulls them back, to fly in the air. Mere wishing will only make one frustrated in the end.

" In the game of football, a TEAM either wins or loses. There is no middle ground. And in order to achieve success, a football TEAM must be that: A TEAM. Sure there are times when a TEAM can win on talent alone, but only when a truly GREAT TEAM comes along can nothing stop them. They are there for each other play after play, hit after hit, and score after score. They are not afraid to make the sacrifices to achieve their ultimate goal. A true TEAM plays as a FAMILY, and when it comes time to face the competition is not afraid to put the HAMMER DOWN against their competition to WIN!"
