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 Thoughts on Faith

“If I can throw a single ray of light across the darkened pathway of another;
if I can aid some soul to clearer sight of life and duty, and thus bless my brother;
if I can wipe from any human cheek a tear,
I shall not have lived my life in vain while here.
If I can guide some erring one to truth, inspire within his heart a sense of duty;
if I can plant within my soul of rosy youth a sense of right, a love of truth and beauty;
if I can teach one man that God and heaven are near,
I shall not then have lived in vain while here.
If from my mind I banish doubt and fear, and keep my life attuned to love and kindness;
if I can scatter light and hope and cheer, and help remove the curse of mental blindness;
if I can make more joy, more hope, less pain, I shall not have lived and loved in vain.
If by life’s roadside I can plant a tree, beneath whose shade some wearied head may rest,
though I may never share its beauty, I shall yet be truly blest
— though no one knows my name, nor drops a flower upon my grave,
I shall not have lived in vain while here.”
– Anonymous (thanks for sharing, dearest mom… your vibrant and “wacky” spirit lives on through these words)
