Turning Today’s Challenges into Tomorrow’s Opportunities through the Development of LifeSkills and Leadership. Empowering and Inspiring Youth to Reach their Ultimate Potential to Successfully Compete in Today’s World.

Quitters never
win and winners
never quit.
WISDOM KEY: If you fail, quickly try again. The difference between winners and losers is how fast they get back into the game. Quitting is the easy way out. Winners are not quitters. Winners are determined and persistent. By not giving in and quitting, you will begin to conquer your own fears. Once you have conquered your fears, you will wonder, “Why didn’t I try this sooner?” Determination conquers fear. Persistence conquers fear. Your attitude conquers fear.

Dave's PHILOSOPHIES...

"Famous" quotes...

How can you do incredible things if you don’t have incredible thinking? You need good philosophies to guide you in your daily life. Explore the great thoughts, philosophies, and ideas of great thinkers, teachers, and leaders. Memorize short quotes or Bible verses and they will guide you and develop you! There will be times when they will give you hope. Famous Dave Anderson

Passion creates an inner drive that burns in your gut and drives you to persist until you are the best that you can be. Ambition is your true passion being unleashed, a vision focused with laser precision, driven by nothing less than turbo charged adrenaline combined with an overwhelming determination to never give up until your dream has been successfully achieved. Famous Dave Anderson

Creativity has no boundaries. Famous Dave Anderson
The greatest secret you will learn in your journey to achieve greater summits is not in the quest to find new conquests but the discovery of a greater vision for yourself as seen through new eyes of an enlightened mind. Famous Dave Anderson
At times all of us feel like the world is caving in on us. What really destroys us is not the adversity itself but what we do to our selves. When we spend all our time worrying, fretting, and feeling lost…we are giving energy to our problem. The greatest force we have to defeat this negative situation that sucks the very life out of us…is simply a decision to turn everything over to power greater than anything in the universe—God!  Just the decision not to give up and move forward with determined optimism will free our mind from our own destructive worry. Surrendering our problems, gives us peace. Peace allows us to reenergize and renew our spirit. Optimism will attract answers, resources, and creativity into our lives.  Famous Dave Anderson
Intelligence is the quickness to admit you don’t know and the insatiable desire to find out what you don’t know.  Ignorance is not knowing that you don’t know, being unwilling to be teachable, and then being steadfast stubborn in defending what you think you really don’t know! Famous Dave Anderson
Your thoughts are pure energy!  If you could fully comprehend the awesome power of your thoughts, you would immediately dedicate 100% of your mind to positive thinking. And you would be forever frightened of the consequences of your negative thinking. Famous Dave Anderson
The same thinking and behavior that got you to where you are today is not the thinking and behavior that you will need to stretch to where you want to be tomorrow! Famous Dave Anderson
Never work for today's paycheck, always work for tomorrow's opportunity. Tomorrow’s rewards are always greater.  There are no shortcuts in life. Continued hard work today and everyday; and never quitting, will eventually turn into a more fulfilling life tomorrow. Famous Dave Anderson
If something for nothing is your goal, you will end up with nothing. Become a profit center. Always create more than you consume.  Create more value than you get paid for and opportunities will always come looking for you. Always give more than what is expected. Famous Dave Anderson
Never Complain, Never Gossip, Instead, Always Be A Good Finder. Quit making the other person wrong—build them up instead! Famous Dave Anderson
When You Are Around Others…Be A Breath Of Fresh Air.  Your attitude should be refreshing and energizing. Famous Dave Anderson
Every day is a fresh start. Begin your day saying positive affirmations to yourself.  Smile and say something positive and cheerful to everyone you meet.  Give someone a heartfelt hug! Don’t let yesterday’s problems hold you back. Today’s a brand new fresh start. Famous Dave Anderson
Discipline is the foundation upon which all success is built. Lack of discipline inevitably leads to failure. Famous Dave Anderson
Do Your Homework!  Nothing is more powerful for your future than being a gatherer of good ideas and information That's called doing your homework. Knowledge—don’t leave school without it! Famous Dave Anderson
Repetition, Repetition, Repetition.  Practice, Practice, Practice.  More often than not it’s the simple things done over and over again that creates excellence.  Don’t let complacency set in.  People who give up because they are bored and never stay the course often miss out on the rewards of success.   Don’t quit.  Don’t give up.  Stay the course and sooner or later your efforts will be rewarded. Famous Dave Anderson
There Are No Shortcuts in Life.  Patience is a virtue.  What you do day-in-and-day-out maybe boring, but those that stay the course are always the ones who win at the end. Famous Dave Anderson
Love “Problems”.  Accept the fact that everyday you are going to get hit with problems.  Don’t avoid them.  I challenge you to ask for problems!  Ask your boss for some problems.  It will change your life!  Be the one everyone can count on for handling problems.  Problems are really life’s golden opportunities for success and achievement! Famous Dave Anderson
My whole purpose in life is just to make you happy! Remove your own personal gratification and ego to make a difference for the better in someone else's life. Famous Dave Anderson
Always take the high road when others are attacking you. Don't let them pull you down to their level. Don't retaliate. Don't be vindictive. You have more important things to achieve in your own life to be suckered into a immature "gotcha back". Famous Dave Anderson
It's all right to fail and make mistakes. Never judge others for their failures or mistakes. It's OK! Failures and mistakes are important in the learning process. So never beat yourself up and especially don't let others get you down. Look at things positively. Resolve never to let it happen again. See if there is anything to be learned from this experience. Famous Dave Anderson
Never get angry. Never use your anger to crush the spirit of another person. Quit making the other person wrong! Only use your anger to make positive changes for the good of mankind. Like get angry at pollution, or angry at injustice. Famous Dave Anderson
Forgive yourself. Forgive others. Forget it. Move on quickly! Winners and losers both experience the same fear and failure.  The difference is how quickly winners get up and get back in the game.  Winners don’t spend valuable time and energy dwelling on what has happened in the past.  They forgive, forget and move on quickly. Famous Dave Anderson
Be Generous. Be a giver not a getter. Giving makes you bigger than you are. Only by giving are you able to receive more than you already have. You make a living by what you get, You make a life by what you give. The more you pour out, the more life will be able to pour in. Famous Dave Anderson
Have the attitude of gratitude. Be thankful to God for everything that you have. Thankfulness is one of the magical keys to abundance. Abundance flees from ungrateful people with negative attitudes. Famous Dave Anderson
