" If you are going through hard times, it is important that you keep on going. Problems are not like the pathways in airports that you just stand on and move along, they are more like mountain tracks. When you get to the top of the mountain or when you get over your problem, there is a beautiful landscape ahead of you showing you the opportunities of paths you can tread."

It sums up the ups and downs of life and how, when you do over come a problem, you can finally see some of the bright prospects the future holds for you.

" Often times in our lives we come across people who are there to help us in our life journey. Other times we come across those who want to destroy our path or detour us from it. These people come in all forms, but by no means are they purposely painful or unnecessary. They're there for a reason, be that to teach us something about ourselves or warn us about whom or what we could become if we're not careful. People in general are not purposely evil, they're different versions of life. We all try to live up to the best versions of ourselves. You don't have to agree with those who cross your path. You don't even have to like them and if in good conscience you can't agree with them or associate yourself with their character, have the understanding that people are going to be who they are and there are going to be times where you can't change that. Have a heart of understanding because without understanding there can be no mercy, without mercy there can be no forgiveness. And without forgiveness how do ever expect to grow?"

I wrote this as a reflection of self and to provide understanding of the people who surround us; how the good and the bad assist in the process of personal growth. If you don't recognize these aspects and deal with them, your growth will be stunted.

" Belief is a wish with an action plan."
Written in 2007 by J. Cadigan --- Maryland
I talked with my athletes about the difference between wishing for something (passive) and believing something will really happen (active) and the difference between the two; how you have to act on a wish to make it something you believe will come true.

" A person who can't bend himself, can never get up after falling down."
Written in 2007 by Raj Pandian
The meaning is just simple ... be flexible always, neither victory nor failure is permanent. To achieve something, we'll have to sacrifice some things.

" Real communication is an attitude, an environment. It is the most interactive of all processes. It requires countless hours of eyeball to eyeball, back and forth. It involves more listening than talking."

" Not one of us knows what affect his life produces, and what he gives to others; that is hidden from us and must remain so, though we are often allowed to see some little fraction of it, so that we may not lose courage. The way in which power works is a mystery."

" I have many fears, none of which involve anything but my own potential."

I believe many of us are afraid of what we can become. We are so used to people belittling us that we come accustomed to belittle ourselves. Don't be afraid of your gifts and talents.
