How do you define success?
• Marry the right person. This one decision will
determine 90% of your happiness or misery.
Find someone special to love. Don’t give away parts of
yourself to many people, for when you find someone who is
right there will be nothing left but an empty shell. The person
you want to spend your life with should be your best friend;
over time that will be more important than you now realize.
• Work at something you enjoy and that's
worthy of your time and talent.
Children and friends will come
and go but your work will
remain constant. Find
something to do that will make
a positive impact on your little
corner of the world.

"Success seems to be connected with
action. Successful people keep moving.
They make mistakes, but they don't quit.”

Be decisive even if it means you'll
sometimes be wrong.
Decisiveness is a two-faced coin.

be steadfast. Don’t go back
and forth on your choice.
-But always be able to see
reason and to be able to
admit you were wrong
"Be willing to make decisions. Don't fall victim to what I call the readyaim-aim-aim-aim syndrome. You must be willing to fire.“

for every area of your life.
The man who complains
most about the way the
ball bounces is likely to be
the one who dropped it.“
-Lou Holtz
Responsibility is hard to have sometimes,
especially when you have to take the blame for a
mistake or something bad, but it makes you a
better person if you own up for your own actions.
Nobody can live your life for you, so you’re in
control, for better or for worse.
Be bold and courageous. When you look back
on your life, you'll regret the things you
didn't do more than the ones you did.
“The person who
risks nothing, does
nothing, has nothing,
is nothing, and
becomes nothing.
He may avoid
suffering and
sorrow, but he
simply cannot learn
and feel and change
and grow and love
and live.”
It is easier to get forgiveness, rather
than permission. Especially in matters
that count, but don’t abuse it either.
-Leo F. Buscaglia
Take good care of those you love.
Family. Best friends. Even people you just know and aren’t too great of
friends with. Everyone is out there to help you if you need it, but be
kind to them in return. Always stick with your friends through their
hard times, because one day you’ll need them most, and you’ll want
them to be there for you too. And when there's
nothing left, your family will always be there.
To us, family means putting your arms around
each other and being there. ~Barbara Bush
Don't do anything that wouldn't
make your Momma proud.
Nothing feels worse than disappointing your Mommy.. & no matter
what she says, she’ll always love you no matter what.
The heart of a mother is a deep abyss at the bottom of which you will
always find forgiveness. ~Honoré de Balzac
