This man had focus, I wish I could focus like that. I struggle with my ADHD constantly, but I will use this quote to help me track, focus and strive.

I love this- a reminder that this is what is about - believing and then dedication to that belief . . .

Good inspiring words.


Other things may change us, but we start and end with the family.  —Anthony Brandt
Smiling is infectious, you catch it like the flu, When someone smiled at me today, I started smiling too. —Karen McLendon-Laumann
Mindfulness is the aware, balanced acceptance of the present experience. It isn’t more complicated than that. It is opening to or receiving the present moment, pleasant or unpleasant, just as it is, without either clinging to it or rejecting it. —Sylvia Boorstein
You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. Fools stand on their island of opportunities and look toward another land. There is no other land; there is no other life but this. —Henry David Thoreau
Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Almost everything--all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure--these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.  —Steve Jobs
The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience. —Eleanor Roosevelt
Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.  —Jim Ryun
We spend precious hours fearing the inevitable. It would be wise to use that time adoring our families, cherishing our friends and living our lives. —Maya Angelou
Kindness isn't about the thanks you get. It's about the act itself. —Joshua Williams
The moment when you first wake up in the morning is the most wonderful of the twenty-four hours. No matter how weary or dreary you may feel, you possess the certainty that, during the day that lies before you, absolutely anything may happen. And the fact that it practically always doesn’t matters not a jot. The possibility is always there. —Monica Baldwin
I don't want to live in the kind of world where we don't look out for each other. Not just the people that are close to us, but anybody who needs a helping hand. I can't change the way anybody else thinks, or what they choose to do, but I can do my bit. —Charles de Lint
There are good ships and wood ships, ships that sail the sea, but the best ships are friendships, may they always be! —Irish Proverb
We must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive. He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love.  —Martin Luther King, Jr.
When you come to the edge of all the light you have, and must take a step into the darkness of the unknown, believe that one of two things will happen. Either there will be something solid for you to stand on - or you will be taught how to fly. —Patrick Overton
A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. —Albert Einstein
When it is dark enough, you can see the stars. —Ralph Waldo Emerson
