The Beginning is just that, The Beginning!
Never allow your beginning to your beginning, middle and end. If it becomes that you become still and never move forward and grow.

Forward or Backwards??
A man without a vision for his future, always returns to his past.
You can not hold a man down without staying down with him. Booker T. Washington
There is L.O.V.E. in Me
There is L.O.V.E. in me and all that I do. Life Of Value Everywhere. In every fiber of my being there is value in me and all that I do. The purpose of it and me will shine through fueled by the grace and mercy of God. No one will have to validate me but me and my actions. Know that there is a Soul that God found so valuable that he gave his only son so that we may have everlasting life. Each day that I rise I will appreciate the value with which I have been blessed.
Hero or Coward
The physical difference between a hero and a coward is nothing because inside they're both scared of dying or getting hurt. It is what the hero does that makes him a hero and what the coward doesn't do that makes him a coward. Cus D'Amato
The only way to discover the limits of the possible is to go beyond them into the impossible.
The Strength of the Pack is the Wolf, and the Strength of the Wolf is the Pack.
Sometimes our lives have to be completely shaken up, changed, and rearranged to relocate us to the place we're meant to be.

Don't base your decisions on the advice of those who don't have to deal with the results. Micheal Baisden
Action Speaks Louder
Don't talk, just act. Don't say, just show. Don't promise, just prove.
Forgive and Release Your Blessing
Sometimes, people haven't apologized because they're ashamed. Forgive them anyway! Sometimes you have to be okay with a sorry you never got. Forgiveness unblocks your blessing...
Message of Hope
When things seem to pile up on you as they sometimes will do, remember to stay prayerful and appreciate the blessing and lesson in it. When trouble and problems seem to suround you as it often will, know that somewhere there is someone who has it worse. When bad things or bad people knock you down , remember this and remember it well "LOOK UP, GET UP AND DON'T YOU EVER GIVE UP!"
Throw me to the WOLVES and I will return leading the pack.
Sometimes good things fall apart for better things to come together..............................Shiik
Strong people don't put others down....... They lift them up.
Before you assume. learn the facts
Before you judge. understand why
Before you hurt someone. feel
Before you speak. think
Building Your Circle
Don't change so people will like you
Be yourself & the right people will love the real you.
Don't Be Scared
The biggest mistake you can ever make is being too afraid to make one.
Don't let people pull you into their STORM. Pull them into your PEACE. Dr. Farrah Gray
Look for something positive in each day, even if some days you have to look a little harder. Let the challenges make you strong.
To be the best you must be able to handle the worst.
Who do you hear?
"Its impossible" said pride.
"Its risky" said experience.
"Its pointless" said reason.
"Give it a try" whispered the heart.
The struggle you're in today is developing the strength you need for tomorrow.
It is during the worst times of your life that you will get to see the true colors of the people who say they care for you.
Food for Thought
Never discuss cheese with rats, talk bread with birds or make moves with snakes..... Coach Jo
Value of Everything
Once you lose everything, you understand the worth of everything.
A person who never made a mistake, never tried anything new. Albert Einstein
Being positive doesn't mean that you don't ever have negative thoughts. You just don't allow the negative thoughts to change the positive energy which drives you down the road to success.
Focus Your Site
It's better to look ahead and PREPARE than to look back and regret. Jackie Joyner Kersee
Forget what hurt you but never forget what it taught you.
It's not how good you are.
It's how good you want to be.
The spirit of the wolf is in the wolf. The courage, fight and passion of the wolf is also in the wolf. However, what brings it all to the forefront is the presence of the WOLVES. WOLVES bring out the best in WOLVES! Coach Mason
Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts.
Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan "press on" has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race. 30th US President, Calvin Coolidge
"It always seems impossible until it's done." Nelson Mandela
You are free to choose, but you are not free from the consequence of your choice.
Chose to Do Right
Most times the right thing to do is the hardest thing to do. Chosing to do the right thing has it's payoffs in the end no matter how long it may take. Life has a lesson for you in every instance regardless of the choices we make. It is those choices which shape the direction of our lives, so choose wisely......................Coach Mason
Dream and Dream Big
Dreams don't work unless YOU DO!
Dream BIG. It costs nothing to dream. The cost is in the sweat to get there. So dream big, then PLAN BIGGER............ Lisa Raye
Change the way you think........you change your life! WB
Focus on your Blessings, not your Misfortunes.
Focus on your Strengths, not your Weaknesses.
Relax and let Life come to you...
Try not to Force ANYTHING.
It is a wonder how when some things come to an end we feel as though there will be nothing to fill the void to follow. With each day we wake up to another day had to end. It is with this same recurrence the thing we've placed so much importance on which ended gives rise to yet another for us to believe and love all the same. Change is a good thing because it represents growth and new direction. Everything happens for a reason, nothing by chance. So, embrace the beginning of something new and potentially very forefilling.
The Measures of Strength
In times of adversity you will learn the capability of your strength. It is in these times that your true strength shall surface and in some cases shock even you with it's capability. Never underestimate the magnitude of ones strength when it is combined with an inner will and desire............... Coach Mason
Accept what is, let go of what was and have faith in what will be.
Lessons of Life
Lessons in life are simple to learn. What tends to get in the way of us learning is a stubborn will preventing us from seeing it for what it is. For example, if you walk off a curb you didn't see next time be more aware of your surroundings and don't blame who is walking with you for distracting you. Along the same lines, we should not allow mistakes to define us but simply teach us not to do the same thing next time.
We all are working everyday towards becoming the person we are intended to be. Nothing and no one defines you but you. There is nothing that is impossible to over come if you believe you can. Every accomplishment started as a thought pushed along by will, desire and action. So, never allow anyone to kill your hopes and dreams because as cliche as it may sound, "if you can believe it you can achieve it."
There is greatness in us all some of us just want it more........... Coach Mason
When you do for those in need you don't call attention to win the praise of others.
The Pleasantries of Fatigue
PUSH!! Push yourself hard to succeed in all that you do. The success you conceived is reality to you. Make demands of your mind, body and spirit inside. Watch the fatigue that you feel gave way to your will and your drive. You have more in you, so much more than you know. Be determined to win and witness the WOLF in you grow. At the end of the journey enjoy where you've come from, what you've been through and all you have done. It had a purpose though it may not have been fun. Appreciate the pain and how it caused you to grow. Savor the moment and all that you now know.
I learned the hard way that I cannot always count on others to respect my feelings. Even if I respect theirs. Being a good person doesn't guarantee that others will be good people, too. You only have control over yourself and how you choose to be as a person. As for others, you can only choose to accept them or walk away.
Food for Thought
Sometimes being understanding is more important than being right.....
Sometimes we need not a brilliant mind that speaks but a patient heart that listens....
Not keen eyes that always see faults but open arms that accept...
Not a finger that points out mistakes but gentle hands that lead!
Sometimes people don't notice the things we do for them until we stop doing it.
Every struggle in your life has shaped you into the person you are today. Be thankful for the hard times; they can only make you stronger.
You don't forgive people because you're weak.
You forgive them because you're strong enough to know that people make mistakes.
Life is like a camera...
Focus on what's important,
Capture the good times,
Develop from the negatives,
And if things don't work out,
Take another shot.
You have a choice each and every single day.
I choose to feel blessed.
I choose to feel grateful.
I choose to be excited.
I choose to be thankful.
I choose to be happy.
If they aren't helping you dream bigger, inspiring you to work harder, motivating you to be better.....You don't need them!Stop allowing people to "chill" in your life. Their presence needs a purpose.
Entire water of the sea can't sink a ship unless it gets inside the ship.
Similarly, negativity of the world can't put you down unless you allow it to get inside you.
Choices, Chances, Changes
You must make a Choice to take a Chance or your life will never Change.
All of us experience change in our lives. Change is the one constant in our lives. There are changes that we look forward to and change that we fear. However, one thing is for sure. Things will not stay the same no matter how much we would like them too. When a life change occurs, we have two choices in how to respond. We can despair that a change has come and assume that things will be worse, or we can look with excitement at the new possibilities that the change presents.
The strongest factor for success is self-esteem:
Believing you can do it, believing you deserve it, believing you will get it.
Care to Express
<font color=grey>Never be afraid to express your feelings to the ones you care about. You never know the day when they will not be there to hear it. So show the love, embrace the now and enjoy the ride. Coach Mason
BELIEVE….. It is simple enough to say the word, but its meaning is where in lies the problem for so many of us.
We’ve hear the saying “If you don’t believe in yourself than who will?”
To BELIEVE as it is so defined is: to accept something as true, genuine, or real
The miracle in belief is that within your thoughts, your actions and your perseverance your beliefs are fact long before they ever materialize.
No matter how farfetched or different from the norm your belief is, IT IS YOURS!!!
You hold on to it and nurture it as the blessing from the most high that it is.
Every man made creation that we enjoy in this life started as a belief in the mind of someone who was told it was impossible or wouldn’t work.
So on this day I say to you:
I BELIEVE IN ME AND ALL THAT DO even if you don’t..............Coach Mason
Someone will always throw stones in your path. It depends on you what you make with them a wall or a bridge? Remember, you are the architect of your life. Build a good one.
Surround yourself with the dreamers and the doers, the believers and thinkers, but most of all, surround yourself with those who see greatness within you even when you don't see it yourself.
Sometimes we need to forget some people from our past!
Because of one simple reason.
They just don't belong in our FUTURE!
Oftentimes we don't get to choose who our family is, but all the time we can choose who we acknowledge as our family. That acknowledgement is not exclusive to bloodlines or matrimonial unions. Sometimes "FAMILY" can be an endearing term given to someone you've grown emotionally close to. However they have come to be acknowledged as such, you have chosen to accept the good and bad that accompanies that person. All you can hope for is that the feeling is mutual. .............Coach Mason
Who Am I?
One should always strive to first learn themselves completely before ever thinking they can commit to anything or anyone. If you don't know who you are and what REALLY makes you who you are, how can you give something a real chance to succeed? I believe that if you compromise the substance of what makes you who you are then you become a lost soul with no direction....Coach Mason
Perfection is not attainable, but IF we chase perfection we can attain EXCELLENCE........
There is motive in each and everything that is done in this day and time. The question needing to be answered is what that motive is. Is it good or bad in its intent? Don’t be so quick to believe what it is you are told because a rush to judgment is oftentimes a bad judgment. Investigate the possibility of the fact, but in all that you do be genuine and transparent and everything that should happen will happen.
Focus on the positive things in your life.
Be grateful for all that you have, for the life you have been given, for your family and friends, your job, and your home. Be thankful and give thanks for the abundance and prosperity that the Universe blesses upon you each and every day.
Feel the appreciation, happiness, and gratefulness for all that surrounds you and all that is within you.
Imagine having the life that you have always wanted. Then feel inside those feelings that you would have if you were already experiencing all that you desire. Combine that with these feelings of gratitude now for what you do have.
Focus on the positive things in your life. Release the negative thoughts, feeling, and actions. Release those feelings, the people and the things that bring you down or affect you negatively in anyway or at least set boundaries for yourself.
Live your life as if you already have the things that you desire. How? By believing and expressing yourself as if you had them or are living your dreams.
Take a few moments each day to meditate – seeing yourself in that beautiful house, with the mate of your dreams, living with a smile in your heart and on your face every day.
Accept those times that may not feel so gracious and look for the silver lining in that rain cloud.
Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain... Lerry Walker
"What you believe and focus on becomes your reality. Once you decide what you're looking for, your brain will go to work to find it and make it your reality." Michael McMillian
To win, I have to first believe I can. No one knows you better than you know yourself no matter the degree they possess, the book they've studied or the time they've spent observing you. Coach Mason
When it comes to commitment, there are really only four types of people:
- Cop-outs- People who have no goals and do not commit.
- Hold-outs- People who don’t know if they can reach their goals, so they’re afraid to commit.
- Dropouts- People who start towards a goals but quit when the going gets tough.
- All-outs- People who set goals, commit to them, and pay the price to reach them.
What kind of person are you? Are you achieving all that you believe you can? Just remember, you can do anything you set your mind to, BUT it takes action, perseverance, and facing your fears.
from “The 21 Indispensable Qualities of a Leader” by John Maxwell
Look To Your Future Not Your Past
Do you know why a cars WINDSHIELD is so large and the rear view mirror is so small? Because our PAST is not as important as our FUTURE. So, look ahead and keep it moving.
Be You, It's Easier
There comes a time when you have to stand up and shout:
This is me damn it! I look the way I look, think the way I think,
feel the way I feel, love the way I love! I am a whole
complex package. Take me... or leave me. Accept me - or walk away!
Do not try to make me feel like less of a person, just because I don't
fit your idea of who I should be and don't try to change me
to fit your mold. If I need to change, I alone will make that decision.
When you are strong enough to love yourself 100%, good and bad--
you will be amazed at the opportunities that life presents you.
Discard Conventional Fixed Ideas
The truth is most people do not practice continuous improvement consciously in any area of their lives, let alone all areas. Too many of the people in this world have minimal or no interest in taking action to improve their lives
Become a student of life, conventional, fixed ideas would suggest that it is not necessary to continue learning throughout our lives. In the new economy, however, the stakes are higher than ever. Those who continue to think that their formal education will take care of them for the rest of their lives are in for a rude awakening. Challenge yourself to look for ways to grow to improve to learn, not just for your life but for the lives of those you’ll be so fortunate to influences.
