I like results. Positive results anyway.

The curve of my biceps or the form and shadow of my triceps from working beyond levels I thought were possible. But my personal coach knew I had it in me, and he pushed me to new limits.

I like the results of pushing myself to new levels in learning and accomplishment. I have several mentors, each pushing me to new heights, unveiling knowledge paths for me to follow where I had only previously seen dead ends.

I love seeing my children learn and grow. Figuring out how to ride a bike, pick up a new instrument, go further running, walking, or biking than they thought possible.

Daily we make the decisions which lead to results. We see success.

What a awesome quote! (Successful people are those who take a No-Excuses Approach and are willing to do what others won’t.) Thank you for sharing!! Life is about making choices whether we like it or not. By making these choices, we continually learn. Nobody says it's easy but through time you'll be wise enough to make the right one. Way to inspire...thank you!!!

"I’m going to choose to be grateful and look for ways to continually improve."  I definitely echo your statement!  Choice is the big word here - we either choose to do what it takes to get the results we desire or we make excuses.  Very simple - well put - and true!
