Christian Living

If it weren’t for the faith that I have in God, I wouldn’t have been able to have had the faith that I had in myself on the golf course.
Payne Stewart

My relationship with God has helped me avoid problems others have run into.
Barry Sanders

As I grow older, I care less and less what people think about me and more and more what God thinks of me. I expect to be with Him much longer than with you.
Robert Baker

If you are really in love with Christ, no matter how small your work, it will be done better; it will be wholehearted. Your work will prove your love.
Mother Teresa

The finest compliment I can pay to defensive tackle Henry Jordan is that he is a humble man and knows the true relationship between God and man. He places his dependence upon God and he seeks His help, not just to win, but to do His will whenever it is presented to him.
Vince Lombardi

Overcome Fear

Don’t let the sensation of fear convince you that you’re too weak to have courage. Fear is the opportunity for courage, not proof of cowardice.
John McCain

Don’t be afraid to take a big step. You can’t cross a chasm in two small steps.
David George

With any fear, you have to face it head-on. It’s your only way to progress. Your biggest fears contain your biggest opportunities to develop as a human being.
Annika Sorenstam

Of all the liars in the world, sometimes the worst are your own fears.
Rudyard Kipling

Do not listen to yourself when the little voice of fear inside of you rears its ugly head and says, “They are all smarter than you out there. They are more talented, they are taller, blonder, prettier, luckier and have connections. They have a cousin who took out Meryl Streep’s baby-sitter.” Give credence at all to that voice, and your worst fears will surely come true.
Neil Simon

Passion for Your Career

People who enjoy what they are doing invariably do it well.
Joe Gibbs

It is harder to fail at something you love than it is to succeed at something you dislike.
Todd Duncan

My dad always had a deep sense of responsibility to his work, to volunteering and to his family. He was always willing to talk with us about what he was doing – even complex legal cases – and we could tell he really enjoyed what he did.
Bill Gates

First find something you like to do so much you’d gladly do it for nothing; then learn to do it so well people are happy to pay you for it.
Walt Disney

When you do what you love, you will do it better, with a greater sense of commitment, more attention to focus, and with a stronger feeling of purpose and alignment.
Todd Duncan

The Power of Love

I wasn’t born with a silver spoon. I had something better – tons of love.
Jack Welch

Tangible works of art fade with time, chip from walls and may be discredited by passing trends. But a life of love lasts forever.
Leo Buscaglia

Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. Then you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man.
Proverbs 3:3-4

Anyone who is a leader has to love his people. You have to make them feel they are an important part of your operation.
Tommy Lasorda

Benefits of Giving

The more I give myself to others, the more joy and inner peace will flow into my own life.
Thomas Kinkade

To give is to receive, but only if one does not give in order to receive.
Wade Hudson

When you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, and you will be blessed. Although they cannot repay you, you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous.
Luke 14:13-14

Abundant living means abundant giving.
E. Stanley Jones

Charity is never lost: it may meet with ingratitude, or be of no service to those on whom it was bestowed, yet it ever does a work of beauty and grace upon the heart of the giver.
Conyers Middleton

It’s the Little Things

Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.
Robert Brault

If you can’t do great things, do small things in a great way.
Napoleon Hill

No matter how small and unimportant what we are doing may seem, if we do it well, it may soon become the step that will lead us to better things.
Channing Pollock

He does most in God’s great world who does his best in his own little world.
Thomas Jefferson

One only gets to the top rung of the ladder by steadily climbing up one at a time, and suddenly all sorts of powers, all sorts of abilities which you thought never belonged to you – suddenly become within your possibility.
Margaret Thatcher

Happiness

There is perhaps no greater compliment than to have people light up with joy and anticipation when you walk into a room. This happens mainly to people who bring with them an element of happiness and surprise.
Leo Buscaglia

There is no cosmetic for beauty like happiness.
Marguerite, Countess of Blessington

You think best when you’re happiest.
Peter Thomson

A man would prefer to come home to an unmade bed and a happy woman than to a neatly made bed and an angry woman.
Marlene Dietrich
