The young athlete who aspires to greatness, generally speaking, learns a number of things from several different coaches. The first one taught him the fundamentals; the second one instilled discipline in him and taught him more of the techniques that must be mastered to excel.
This is not to imply that we agree on everything because we don?t. Nor does it mean there are no arguments because there are. It does mean there is never any maliciousness or bitterness in our differences. It does mean each is willing to admit a mistake and apologize if he or she is wrong. It means we enjoy each other and love each other enough to put the other one first. We never part company or go to sleep without settling our differences and reaffirming our love. We?re both grateful that God has let us spend enough years together to develop a relationship and discover what real love is all about. Our prayer is that God will permit us to have many more years together before we start our walk though eternity?together.
Unless you have a definite, precise, clearly set goals, you are not going to realize the maximum potential that lies within you.

Why we are here is important, but to know where we are going is imperative. It's not what you've got, it's what you use, that makes a difference in how your life turns out.

I have always said that everyone is in sales. Maybe you don?t hold the title of salesperson, but if the business you are in requires you to deal with people, you, my friend, are in sales.
If God would have wanted us to live in a permissive society He would have given us Ten Suggestions and not Ten Commandments.
If you do not believe in your product or service enough to offer it to your own family and friends, then you should question the value of what you are selling.
If you pay that price daily by planning and preparing and working to become the right kind of person, then you can legitimately expect to have all that life has to offer.
I'm convinced that what kids need today are parents - not buddies. They need someone who will exercise mature judgment.
It is unwise to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little money, that is all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything because the thing you bought was incapable of doing what it was bought to do.

On rare occasions we hear about people who seem to be overnight successes. Actually, the "overnight" success is rare, and it certainly didn't happen in my life. My dream to become a speaker was born in 1952 after I heard speaker Bob Bale from Phoenix, Arizona. He had a lot of fun, did a tremendous amount of good and, I thought, made lots of money. All those things appealed to me. For the next thirteen years I spoke for anyone who would permit me to speak. I spoke to people in service clubs, schools, churches, prisons, drug rehab centers, automobile dealerships, and more. I literally drove hundreds of miles, at my expense, to speak to small groups. My fee? The opportunity to speak and improve my presentation skills. Money seldom changed hands. I did it because I believed I had something of value to say. However, I understood that in order to be paid for saying it, I had to learn how to say it in such a way that the audience would be willing to hear the message and act on the message.
