This is a compilation of thoughts and quotes that I have found or written recently, as well as many that I've collected throughout the years. Most thoughts are posted randomly, as I feel inspired. A listing of quotes can be found alphabetically (check the 2008 and 2009 archives listing), or by source.

SWEAT: An Inspirational Motto

SWEAT is an acronym for five action words that, when realized, can take us to a new level of achievement. Yet any one of these words by themselves could serve as an inspirational motto:

See. Have a vision of the future. Set specific goals, then use those goals to focus your life. You have to know where you=re going in order to get there.

Work. Put in the time and effort necessary to achieve your goals. A veritable smorgasbord of work opportunities await you. And with completed work comes great satisfaction.

Expect. Great Expectations is not just a novel by Dickens. You need to expect that the work you do will produce results. To expect involves an element of hope or belief in oneself. A positive attitude coupled with unbridled optimism will take you far.

Achieve. When we combine specific goals with concerted effort and expectation, achievement will be the result. We rehearse achievement with every successful effort.

Thanks. We need to be grateful to those around us who enable us to pursue our dreams and help us achieve our goals. This attitude of gratitude ultimately permeates our very being, and becomes unconditional rather than contingent on some great performance.
