Success quote for December 14, 2010

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with U.S. Financial Funding, LLC

Good Tuesday Morning,

Today is December 14, and it will be a great day.  

Each day I'll be posting a quote that will, hopefully be thought-provoking.

I thought it would be nice to help give us all a little added inspiration to our day.  

Many of you are aware of the trials and tribulations that have befallen me over the last few years, including a near-death car accident that left me wheel chair bound for 7 months.

About a year after the accident (around May), I started to have some complications.  Not from the accident, but, I have been diagnosed with one of the rarest neurological disorders known.  I am one of about 25 people in the country who have this "disorder" and am continuously going through experimental treatments.

Sometimes I feel like an alien that has been sent to Area 51.  They're not sure what they have, however, they keep testing until something "sticks".

I am able to achieve this against the odds that I am given because of my attitude and belief that I can.

I found out yesterday that the doctors are putting me back in the hospital for up to 3 days for additional testing.  They are putting me in an observation room with 24/7 monitoring where I'll be hooked up to machines through wires on my head and cameras on me.

Did I mention that I feel like an alien that has been captured?

Here is the inspiration for the day.  Have a great Tuesday.

Phelps

I wish you well.  The only thing that we can control in life is our attitude.  You sound like you have a winning attitude.  Persevere and overcome.

This is one of my favorite quotes, too. Excellence is not just something that magically appears. it is the result of what we commit to doing over and over again.

Merry Christmas, Jeffrey!
