The Better Man Project


%inspirational quotes

Effort…is between you…and you

No one else will truly know how much you gave it today

They only see what you are doing at the moment

And that is how they make their judgements

If you are going to give them something to judge, make it great

Shake up the world

But it still comes down to you

And how much you have in the tank

How much you can step down on the gas

You have to ask yourself

Is this my best?

If it is

One up yourself

If it isn’t


At the end of the day, only you look in the mirror

And the eyes staring back at you tell you the truth

Each day you have an opportunity to rise to the occasion

Go beyond your previous limits

Crush mental barriers

Hurdle emotional obstacles

Run through the physical pain

Only you have the power to do that

Sure someone may motivate you for a while

But true change comes from within

That is where the magic is

That is how you explode into the atmosphere

Rise to the occasion

    Got so much to say but I don’t trust anyone enough to share the load with me.

    This is crazy.

    Reminds me a lot of the poem “Being Famous Isn’t Attractive.” I think it was by Anthony Kahn, but I’ll have to check that.

    Your efforts are not in vain. If you are to gain riches through your writing and fame, you will have deserved it. If perchance not, then your writing will have touched the hearts and souls of over fifteen thousand human beings. That is a mountain of gold to change character and touch the Spirit of so many men and women. You are quite a man.

    Beautiful! It is true about how people judge. As I get older it hurts less when it involves an acquaintance. It still bums me out when old friend doesn’t understand.
    Along with our action are words. The more positive we are with them, the positively we are perceived.

    • September 3, 2013

      Exactly right. The more positive you are with your feelings the more they control your life. Spot on.
