Quotable Sunday 1/4/2009

First Quotable Sunday of 2009.

The rules (for newbies)
~Go to your blog and post one or more of your favorite quotes.
~Go to A Daily Dose of Toni and sign mister linky with the link to your post and then go visit the other participants and leave some comment love.
~Spread the word of course...we want lots of Quotes to read :)

That means a new beginning, whether very little will change for you this year, we all need to do something different.

Save more money? Lose weight? Buy your significant other the gift that will light up their eyes (a new truck or that piece of art they have always wanted? Something that lingers in our mind all the time that we say, "I will do that one day". Why not this year? Why not start now?

No motivation?
Well that is what my quotes are about this week. Motivation!

My need for motivation?
* To lose 50 pounds, I have the six kids, I don't need a reminder every time I look in the mirror.
* Get my finances in order, I don't have much to do, but enough that keeps me from getting what I want.

"The man who can drive himself further once the effort gets painful is the man who will win."
Roger Bannister

~No one said that life will be easy nor will our paths be easy, however, we must continue on to win, against ourselves!~

"Self-determination is fine but needs to be tempered with self-control."Anonymous

~Do not go overboard on your endeavors! Take it in stride, and one day at a time, you will get there~

"He who has a why to live for can bear almost any how." Friedrich Nietzsche

~You must remember everyday WHY you are on the path you are on. Honestly, the best reason of all.. for yourself~

I find it fascinating that most people plan their vacation with better care than they do their lives.Perhaps that is because escape is easier than change.
Jim Rohn


~My boyfriend taught me this. He had an.. "attack plan" for his life, and he's stuck with most of it. I never did, I've always lived by the seat of my pants... perhaps there is some validity to his way of thinking~

"If you raise your children to feel that they can accomplish any goal or task they decide upon, you will have succeeded as a parent and you will have given your children the greatest of all blessings."
Brian Tracy


~This is very important, they need to know they can succeed at anything they attempt, even if it seems impossible. This doesn't mean do it for them, however give them the foundation to do it for themselves!~

This is so true..I have a daughter that was once written off by everyone, but me.. I always told her she could do ANYTHING! She is now a great mom, wife, and successful cancer radiation technician with a heart of compassion!
