Sharing Some Empowering and Uplifting Thoughts from my Notes (from the brand new e-book THE WINNING WAY)

SHARING SOME EMPOWERING AND UPLIFTING THOUGHTS ( FROM THE WINNING WAY)

Submitter’s Note

These are some quotations and thoughts (some on “airey-fairey spiritual matters”), that I’ve collected* and “jotted down” on my computer. I’ll include them in my new book at Amazon, titled ‘The Winning Way’ at http://www.amazon.com/dp/B006WQSGEI. Hope these words may be as encouraging, uplifting, empowering…and perhaps even “inspiring” to you as they are to me. So am sharing. Enjoy

The important thing in life is not to triumph but to compete…it’s not victory but combat…not to have vanquished but to have fought well…not winning but taking part.”

― Pierre de Coubertin (French Educator, primarily responsible for the revival of the Olympic Games in 1894. 1863-1937)

“Nothing inspires me more than than people who stand up and say,’ Yes, we can do anything. You don’t have to be special to achieve incredible things.”

Jessica Watson (Australian round-the-world sailor at age 17!)

The greatest mountain we need to climb lies in our our own minds”. It’s not the highest mountain that we conquer, but ourselves, our own mentality. Overcoming perceived limits to reach (attain) the pinnacle of our own minds.”

– craig (as inspired by the words of Sir Edmund Hillary, conquerer of Mount Everest (1919-2008)

True champions, like an Ayrton Senna, are able to find a new level (of performance) – when required, they have the ability to “dig deep” and find something very special inside themselves

‘The aim is to be in the Zone every time you get in the car. But that day Ayrton was somewhere else beyond the Zone…heaven”

– Lewis Hamilton

Sharing a few Quotations/Thoughts on HOPE and LOVE

Sharing a few Quotations/Thoughts on HOPE and LOVE

Submitter’s Note
These are some of the notes (in point form) from thoughts and quotations that I’ve written down and collected over the years, which may be of interest and get you “tinking” about these “airey-fairey matters”. Hope that these thoughts may be helpful and perhaps even inspirational to you .

THE DAWN OF HOPE
“He who does not hope to win has already lost.”
– Jose Olmedo

“In the depth of the valleys there is hope. In the deserts of despair, there is the refreshing oasis of the human spirit…always.”
– craig

Esperanzo = hope (in Spanish)

SOUTH AFRICA
“Either we stayed as we were, trapped inside our fortress of paranoia, deformed by fear and greed, or we opened the door to Africa… and set forth into the unknown.”
The country survives because of the strength and optimism of its people.
From out of the epic injustice of apartheid towards the tortuous tiny first steps of a “negotiated revolution”, ultimately arose an epic reconciliation.

WALLS
“Man is a great wall builder
The Berlin Wall
The Wailing Wall of Jerusalem
But the wall most impregnable
Has a moat
flowing with fright
around his heart
A wall without windows for the spirit to breeze through
without a door for love to walk in.”
– OSWALD MTSHALI, Soweto (South African) poet
from ‘My Traitor’s Heart’ by Rian Malan (published by Vintage 1990)
*
“The most noble aspects of the human spirit – unquenchable in its search for freedom and justice.”
– great writing by Rian Malan in his compelling book ‘My Traitor’s Heart’
