“Thanks for your concerns. Many have asked how I am doing since I got run down by a car. I am doing fine. I am healing and looking at the bright side. I am fortunate and blessed to only be injured, though that makes it sound worse than it was. Yes, I was struck down.
Yes, I’m good. I was hit from behind. The speed was not great. I was knocked down and my foot got pinned between the car and the road causing some tendon and ligament issues. My knees got scrapped up. The driver backed up and sped off. I am forgiving the person.
Life goes on. Focus on what’s good. I really appreciate everyone’s concerns. Thanks for the emails, texts and comments expressing your concerns and well wishes! I appreciate reading and hearing them all. Thank you, and thank you!
Attitude Is Everything
Sadly, another great passed from us. Muhammad Ali. I grew up to his escapades, his name change, his protests, his career, his talent, his life, his illness and now his death, as many of us have. What a remarkable person this was. I will end this post with a few quotes.
Read these – repeat these – remember these – keep them alive within you. The words he spoke and the champion he became exemplified what thought leaders have been imploring us to do for centuries. Have purpose, faith, believe in oneself, use your will and keep going!
Attitude – The Little Thing That Makes A Big Difference
‘I am the greatest. I said that before I even knew I was.’
‘I never thought of the possibility of failing, only of the fame and glory I was going to get when I won. I could see it. I could almost feel it. When I proclaimed that I was the greatest of all time, I believed in myself, and I still do.’
‘I hated every minute of training, but I said, ‘Don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.’
‘To be a great champion you must believe you are the best. If you are not, pretend you are.’
Champions aren’t made in the gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them, a desire, a dream, a vision. They have to have the skill and the will. But the will must be stronger than the skill.’
‘It’s the repetition of affirmations that leads to belief. And once that belief becomes a deep conviction things begin to happen.
‘He who is not courageous in life to take risks will accomplish nothing in life.’
‘It isn’t the mountains ahead to climb that wear you out. It is the pebble in your shoe.’
‘It is the lack of faith, people afraid of meeting challenges. I believe in myself.
‘Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.’
‘The service you do for others is the rent you pay for your rent here on earth.’
Your Attitude Determines Your Altitude

Muhammad Ali will always be a hero to me. A man of self-belief, courage, intelligence and supreme talent. An inspiration to the world.
Rex, I send positive thoughts from the UK to wish you a speedy recovery. 😀

Thanks so much! Will do! All the best!
Wonderful post. Glad you are still with us. My first mentor had an experience that ended him in the hospital for several months. So he spent that time perfecting his as we call it in magic slight of hand. He said it took him to the highest level of magic he had ever been at. I hope something better happens for you during this healing time.
Warmly and sincerely
