I will live as if I am a great person.
I will practice being great each day of my life.
I have only one life, and I may as well make it a great one. I have
little to lose and much to gain by living as if I am great. I will live
as if my dreams are possible and work each day to make them happen.
Practice is the path to greatness. I will practice doing the things
that great people do. I will find out what they do, how they do it, and
I will do the same thing.
Greatness doesnít come suddenly. It happens one day at a time as I
persistently move in the direction of my dreams. Itís something I do
every day, all day long. My path to greatness is always under
God designed me to live as if I am a great person. There is no preset
limit to how far I can go or how good my life can become.

Great lives are built on great thoughts, and miserable lives are built
on drivel and hype.
The single most destructive force on planet earth is television. It's
the original weapon of mass destruction and ruins millions of lives each
year as it fills people's minds with rubbish, God gave you a brain
designed to think great thoughts, and television turns it into a trash
Many people think I'm a little hard on television. After all, it's only
chewing gum for your mind, and perhaps they are right. Some people want
to live in Nowhere Land and don't want to do anything with their life.
A wide screen high definition television is an excellent way to
anesthetize their mind so they forget about their dreams.
That may be ok for some people, but it's not ok for me. I'm constantly
on the prowl looking for great thoughts that I can put into my mind,
because I know that great lives are built on great thoughts.
I've built my life on a few great thoughts.
I believe that everyone has the ability to achieve excellence in at
least one area of their life. I chose medicine as my area of
I believe that love is the most positive and most powerful force in the
universe, and that when love gets inside you, it makes you into a
healthy person. When your mind is full of thoughts that are consistent
with love, your mind is exactly the way God designed it to be. When
your heart is full of emotions that are consistent with love, your heart
is exactly the way God meant for it to be.
II believe that the most important thing I do in my life is raise my
children, and if my children grow up to have good values, if they have
good self-esteem, and if they are still my best friend, then I am a
I believe that sailing around the world with my family on a small yacht
was one of the smartest things I ever did. It showed my children that
it's possible to live their dreams.
I believe Land Rover Defenders are the most awesome expeditionary
vehicles ever built. It's never over in a Rover, and God willing, I
will drive one around the world.
Finally, I believe there is no limit to how good my life can become.
That's my short list of great thoughts. What's on your list?
Life is good.
