motivational thought for the day

wonder what it is about this time of the year where i think of motivational stuff and things like that i tried a thread last year lets see if i can do it again :)

What is difficult for some people is not difficult for others and the difference is in their attitude. Everything is possible when you believe in yourself and when you blindly believe that it can be done, when you have a burning desire and a stubborn and persistent attitude to succeed

Your background and circumstances may influence who you are, but you are responsible for who you become.

A true hero is someone who does what needs to be done, when it needs to be done. Regarless of the consequences. (We have some of these on here.)
