from

“A champion is not a title, but a set of qualities: Champions aren’t made in the gym. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them – an inner flame that burns brightly…with dedication, purpose, desire and passion. True champions LIVE the dream, the vision of who and what they can one day become…. even a long time before it happens.”

HOPE, DREAM, BELIEVE

“I wish you well on a rainy day
I wish you rainbows to brighten your day
To feel your quiet moments with a special kind of warmth
to remind you that happiness can happen
when you least expect it.

I wish you rainbows to make you laugh and smile
to show you the simple beauty of life
and to give you the magic of dreams come true.

I wish you rainbows
I wish you well.”

”Since I can never see your face,
And never shake you by the hand,
I send my soul through time and space
To greet you. You will understand.”

Ripples of Hope: “Few (of us) will have the greatness to bend history itself, but each of us can work to change a small portion of events… “

light-great2

“Few (of us) will have the greatness to bend history itself, but each of us can work to change a small portion of events. It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man (or woman) stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, (she or) he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.”
– the powerful and greatly inspiring words of Robert F. Kennedy:

Adress by Robert F. Kennedy, University of Cape Town,  South Africa, June 6, 1966

“Together, one mind, one heart, one life, one small step at a time, let’s link hands and march into a new tomorrow, a better and brighter future. TOGETHER we can do it”

The Greatest Race: The Race of Life

On the Podium (Carmen)

” I truly believe we can ALL create and enthuse magic into
‘so-called humdrum little lives’. You don’t just have to be
the choreorapher, or the conductor of your life script –
rather paint your life as the masterpiece it could (one day)
be. There is a rich tapestry of talent in every human soul,
that flows through the spirit of God. So don’t spend your
days stringing and tuning your instrument; start making and
playing your unique tunes of music right now.”

What’s that about it taking 10000 hours to “purrfect a skill”!

“The Greatest Race: Living by (with) faith, hope and love is the highest podium any person can reach, God’s podium that anyone stand on.”

“Having pursued the goals, the dreams set before us and run the race with persistence and endurance, after giving it all. Then one day standing on the summit of life, breathing in the pure sweet oxygen of achievement, totally satisfied in running the greatest race, the race of life one that ANYONE can run and win.”
