Best of the best by Gary Newell
I’m a part of the fellowship of the 2 percent. The die’s been cast. I’ve stepped out of the comfort zone. The decision’s been made.
I am a diamond!
I won’t look back, let up, slow up, or back away. My past is focused, my future is secure. I’m finished and done with low living, side walking, small planning, faithless dreams, tainted vision, mundane talking, cheap excuses, and dwarf goals! I no longer need preeminence, position, promotion, promises, or popularity. I don’t have to be first, I don’t have to be right. I don’t have to be recognized. I don’t have to be praised, regarded or rewarded. I live by faith, learn by submitting, labor by love, lead by example, lift by prayer. My dream is developed, my decision definite, my desire is determined, my discipline is dedicated, my devotion distinct.
My pace is set, my pace is fast, my road is narrow, my way is tough, my companions strong, my counselors reliable, my purpose is pure and my vision is clear. I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, turned back, diluted, delayed, or denied. I’ll not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of the adversary, negotiate at the table of the enemy, ponder at the pool of popularity, or meander in the maze of mediocrity. I won’t give up, shut up, let up till I’ve stayed up, stored up, prayed up, paid up, and stood up for the price and cause of FREEDOM! I must fight when other faint, go when others won’t, give till I drop, teach till all know and work till the task is finished. And when I lie exhausted on the playing field of dreamers, those that believe in a life with passion, those that make up the 5% won’t have any problem recognizing me as one of their own.

Attitude – The longer I live the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude to me is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill.
It will make or break a company, a church … a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past… we can not change the fact people will act in a certain way. We can not change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have; and that is our attitude…. I am convinced life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it.
