“Every memorable act in the world is a triumph of enthusiasm.” - Og Mandino
"When enthusiasm enters the arena, everything changes. I don’t know the science behind it, but let’s just say that when enthusiasm shows up, positive things began to appear. A life changing force seems to enter the ball game and amazing energy takes over your body and your mind. I know you have experienced this feeling. The challenge is that it is so easy to let the mundane keep us busy – and while it makes the days go by, not much excitement enters. There are plenty of really good things to show enthusiasm for, but it is entirely up to you to discover what they are. Wouldn’t it be fun to create and follow through on some things that you’ll enjoy and remember forever? So, how about looking around and find something that really enthuses you - and then turn it into a memorable act that will stick with you forever. You’ll find yourself having a whole bunch more fun."
“The place to improve the world is first in one’s own heart and head and hands, and then work outwards from there.” -Robert Pirsig
"Improving the world is an inside-out job – not the other way around. Anything that you personally accomplish in your own growth is the beginning of change for many things. Sometimes it is just that a friend sees the positive change in you and decides they are going to do the same. Most times, however, you will have made a difference that you will not be aware of. That can have the result of you touching someone who touches someone else who touches someone else. Regardless, since you were put here to make a difference, it does all start right within you. When you grow, the world grows, so make a promise to yourself that becoming all that you can become makes for a great life for you – and for a whole bunch of others."
