"Which will you be like as you face life?" he asked.  Will you give up, become hard --- or  transform adversity into triumph?  As the "chef" of your own life, what will you bring to the table?

A goal is a dream with a deadline.

Aim high for the moon, for even if you miss, you will be among the stars.

Failure is only the opportunity to begin again more intelligently.

-Henry Ford

Fear of the consequences of a mistake may tempt you to try to hide it, especially if you are involved in any way. Burying a problem or ignoring it will most likely make it worse.

Following the path of least resistance is what makes rivers and men crooked.

Give me a fish and I will feed you for the day Teach me how to fish and I will feed you for a lifetime.

I never notice what has been done.  I only see what remains to be done.

Money is an excellent servant But a terrible master!

Pride is a personal commitment.  It is an attitude, which separates excellence from mediocrity.

To give anything but the best is to sacrifice the gift...

We are what we repeatedly do, Excellence then is not an act, but a habit.

You cannot become what you want to be by remaining what you are.
