|TURNER & TURNER CONTRACTING|
Circumstances may cause interruptions and delays, but never lose sight of your goal. Prepare yourself in every way you can by increasing your knowledge and adding to your experience, so that you can make the most of opportunity when it occurs.
--- Mario Andretti
Don’t let mental blocks control you. Set yourself free. Confront your fear and turn the mental blocks into building blocks.
--- Dr. Roopleen
You can conquer almost any fear if you will only make up your mind to do so. For remember, fear doesn't exist anywhere except in the mind.
--- Dale Carnegie
Don't let the negatives of life control you. Rise above them. Use them as your stepping stones to go higher than you ever dreamed possible
--- Mary Kay Ash
Too many of us are not living our dreams, because we are living our fears. Decide to become fearless. Face the thing you fear the most. You're stronger than you give yourself credit for.
If you can laugh at it. You can move past it. You have the ability to do more than you have ever hoped, imagined or dreamed. You have GREATNESS within you!
--- Les Brown
The road to glory is difficult with its rocks and boulders, its strain and struggle. Things aren't always as easy as we would like. Surprises and pitfalls wait for us along the road of life. We're going to sweat and sway, we're going to wonder why things are the way they are. But every road has an end; every mountain has its peak. If we can just hold on and keep climbing, knowing that God is aware of how we're straining, he will bring us up and over the mountains.
--- Thelma Wells
You are not perfect, yet you can move your world in a positive direction. Whatever happens, you can offer new positive energy to life.
You get angry, frustrated, disappointed, but you don’t have to perpetuate those negative emotions. You can transform their power into beneficial action, into determination and commitment.
As difficult and frightening as life can sometimes be, you are fully able to push past the despair. Reach deep inside, connect with what you know to be good and right, true and helpful.
Many circumstances are beyond your influence. Even so, you can be a positive force for the people and situations around you, and that’s not nothing.
Indeed, improvement in the world never comes from grand schemes or forceful decrees. It comes from people who choose, again and again, to follow their best possibilities.
You are always able to make that choice. Push past anger, past judgment, past despair, and push life in a more positive direction.
--- Ralph Marston
Don't let fear stop you. Don't give up because you are paralyzed by insecurity or overwhelmed by the odds, because in giving up, you give up hope. Understand that failure is a process in life, that only in trying can you enrich yourself and have the possibility of moving forward. The greatest obstacle in life is fear and giving up because of it.
--- Sonia Sotomayor
You are not the product of your circumstances. You are a composite of all the things you believe, and all the places you believe you can go. Your past does not define you. You can step out of your history and create a new day for yourself. Even if the entire culture is saying, "You can't." Even if every single possible bad thing that can happen to you does. You can keep going forward.
--- Oprah Winfrey
Where there is purpose, there is progress. When you have a good enough reason, you find a workable way.
Conditions change, disappointments arise, and troubles swarm abruptly into the best-laid plans. Yet when those plans have solid purpose, the troubles will soon be left behind.
Purpose gives rise to commitment, persistence, innovation, resourcefulness, and courage. Those are powerful qualities to have on your side.
Ask yourself why, and don’t stop asking until the answer leaves you trembling in awe. Connect with purpose, and tap into a constantly replenished source of energy.
Under all the distractions, diversions, preferences, joys, and worries, lives purpose. It is you, it is strong, it is there to be lived every day.
When you’re not sure where to go, or how to go, go to purpose. And let its unyielding power push your world forward.
— Ralph Marston
