I have to admit that I am a very lazy person. Working out has never been a proriity for me. But ever since I read this quote, it just dawned on me that I really have to persevere & set time to take care of my body. Those who do not find time for exercise will have to find time for illness. -Earl of Derby isn’t that just the truth? I am still lazy, but I’d rather have the time to work out than be sick.. ^_~

Happiness is inward and not outward; and so it does not depend on what we have, but on what we are.

Believe in Yourself
If you do believe in yourself, everyone else will.
You have the ability to accomplish anything,
but never do it at someone else’s expense.
If you can go through life loving others,
you will have achieved the greatest success of all.

“Success is not final, Failure is not fatal, but it is the courage to continue that counts.” Winston Churchill

Don’t get frustrated doing continous unresulted effort, sometimes the last bunch of the key open the lock. Stop asking why me?

My dear believe that everything happens for a reason. Remember mistakes, failure and rejections are part of success. No body ever achieve any wonderful thing in this world without face the 3.

Always be positive no how dangerous the situation…every hardship in your life will turn out to be success. So smile! Smile because you don’t own the whole world’s problem.

The brick walls are there for a reason. The brick walls are not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. Because the brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it badly enough. They’re there to stop the other people.”

–Randy Pausch
