So, what is with all the tennis shoes on my website?
Everyone needs a little whimsy, but the tennis shoes act as a reminder that achieving our dreams and goals is hard work. I believe anyone can be a success. But being a success (however you want to define it) takes a willingness to lace up the tennis shoes, get out of the chair, stop making excuses, and do the work. Don't waste another moment letting your dreams remain dreams.
The mantra I live by every day (thanks, Byron):
"The trick is in what one emphasizes. We either make ourselves miserable, or we make ourselves happy. The amount of work is the same." - Carlos Castaneda
"Success isn't a result of spontaneous combustion. You must set yourself on fire." - Arnold H. Glasow
"I can achieve what I believe and I believe I can achieve anything." - Author Unknown
It took six days for a group of Buddhist monks to create an extravagant sand mandala at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. But you can watch the entire process in about two minutes thanks to the time-lapse video: Buddha of Compassion mandala. The sentiment behind it goes well with the writing of Mother Teresa, below.
"I just chipped away everything that wasn't David." - Michelangelo (not a bad way to look at ourselves)
"I've learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow. - I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights. - I've learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you'll miss them when they're gone from your life. - I've learned that making a 'living' is not the same thing as making a life. - I've learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance. - I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw some things back. - I've learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision. - I've learned that even when I have pains, I don't have to be one. - I've learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. - I've learned that I still have a lot to learn. - I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel." - Maya Angelou
"If you really want to do something, you will find a way. If you don't, you will find an excuse." - Author Unknown
"You have brains in your head, and feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose." - Dr. Seuss
"People are often unreasonable, illogical and self-centered. Forgive them anyway. If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives. Be kind anyway. If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies. Succeed anyway. If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you. Be honest and frank anyway. What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight. Build anyway. If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous. Be happy anyway. The good you do today people will often forget tomorrow. Do good anyway. Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give the world the best you've got anyway. You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God. It is never between you and them - anyway." - Mother Teresa
"When nothing is sure, everything is possible." - Margaret Drabble
"If we choose to be no more than clods of clay, then we shall be used as clods of clay for braver feet to tread on." - Marie Corelli
"Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared." - Siddhartha Gautama (Buddha)
"If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours." - Henry David Thoreau
Carnegie Mellon Professor Randy Pausch, who, sadly, died from pancreatic cancer on July 25, 2008, gave his last lecture at the university on Sept. 18, 2007, before a packed McConomy Auditorium. In his moving talk, "Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams" (video), Pausch talked about his lessons learned and gave advice to students on how to achieve their own career and personal goals. You can also check out Randy Pausch's website for more information, links to shorter versions of his lecture, and DVD purchasing information.
