Empowered to "walk" and excel

Welcome again to 2013...

I really enjoy reading what others - especially those who have excelled - have said.

I pray these words (mainly from women) empower you to " rise up, walk" and excel this year.  Here are 7 quotes that caught my attention (comments in purple font, mine):
I do not wish [women] to have power over men; but over themselves.                          
~ Mary Wollstonecraft
If you don’t like being a doormat then get off the floor.    
~ Al-Anon
One thing that gets to me about us women is that some of us believe that we are, and behave like, victims. I believe that some of us actually behave like "doormats" and so we're treated as such. The fact of life is that - it's all up to you, so get up.  Some of us spend more time talking, or even complaining, about what we need to do to get ahead in life. Much talk and no "walk" is of little to no value...
The secret of getting ahead is getting started. The secret of getting started is breaking your complex overwhelming tasks into small manageable tasks, and then starting on the first one. ~ Mark Twain
The most effective way to do it, is to do it. ~ Amelia Earhart
It is only when we truly know and understand that we have a limited time on earth and that we have no way of knowing when our time is up that we will begin to live each day to the fullest, as if it were the only one we had.
~ Elisabeth Kub├╝ler-Ross
It's really about making each day count - not counting the days...
One of the most courageous things you can do is identify yourself, know who you are, what you believe in and where you want to go. ~ Sheila Murray Bethel
Then do the most courageous thing: get up and go...
The more we see ourselves as a vibrant, successful, inspiring person who boldly declares and manifests her vision, the more we become just that.
~ Kristi Bowman
With 350 days to go, there is so much you can aspire to and actually achieve this year. Like Jesus said: "Rise up and walk..."
...the power to excel is within you.

...so you need to get used to it.”
