"I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed." - Michael Jordan
Magic is an art. I am merely a tour guide.

My favorite inspiration is still Kipling's "If"...
Also known, when doing rope magic, as "Cordini"

"Never crush another man's dreams, because sometimes, dreams are all he has". It's so easy to be negative and critical of things.I keep this saying in mind all the time when talking with other people.

"If you shoot for the stars, you may land on the roof. But if you shoot for the roof, you will never leave the ground"

I love this one...

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."

Marianne Williamson

Just so everyone knows, I return to this thread every time I need to motivate myself.

It really does help. I sincerely hope it helps you too...

So... Thanks everyone for all your contributions here...

Really, really appreciated! Smile

I'll add one more...
