Album: Hannah Montana: The Movie

I can almost see it
That dream I am dreaming
But there’s a voice inside my head saying
“You’ll never reach it”

Every step I’m taking
Every move I make feels
Lost with no direction
My faith is shaking

But I gotta keep trying
Gotta keep my head held high

There’s always gonna be another mountain
I’m always gonna wanna make it move
Always gonna be a uphill battle
Sometimes I’m gonna have to lose

Ain’t about how fast I get there
Ain’t about what’s waiting on the other side
It’s the climb

The struggles I’m facing
The chances I’m taking
Sometimes might knock me down
But no, I’m not breaking

I may not know it
But these are the moments that
I’m gonna remember most, yeah
Just gotta keep going

And I, I got to be strong
Just keep pushing on

‘Cause there’s always gonna be another mountain
I’m always gonna wanna make it move
Always gonna be a uphill battle
Sometimes I’m gonna have to lose

Ain’t about how fast I get there
Ain’t about what’s waiting on the other side
It’s the climb, yeah!

There’s always gonna be another mountain
I’m always gonna wanna make it move
Always gonna be an uphill battle
Somebody’s gonna have to lose

Ain’t about how fast I get there
Ain’t about what’s waiting on the other side
It’s the climb, yeah!

Keep on moving, keep climbing
Keep the faith, baby
It’s all about, it’s all about the climb
Keep the faith, keep your faith, whoa





Think About It

“When I start a play, I never know if I will be able to do what I would like.  But I always go ahead and try.  I have confidence in my ability as a basketball player.  I guess deep down inside I know it will work.” -Julius Erving, NBA Forward

Pledge of Success

17 07 2009

Today is a new day, a new beginning.

It has been given to me as a new gift.

I can either us it or throw it away.

What I do today will affect me tomorrow.

I cannot blame anyone but myself if I do not succeed.

I promise to use this day to the fullest by giving my best, realizing it can never come back again.

This is my life and I choose to make it a success.

======================================

My turn: I am not sure who wrote this pledge, but ever since I found it at the end of 2008 I have had it posted next to my desk at work and I read it every day when I come in.  I truly believe the words in this pledge and want to share it with all of you!

Song: The World’s Greatest

Album: The R. In R&B Collection: Volume 1

Who´s the worlds greatest
Who´s the worlds greatest
The worlds greatest

I am a mountain
I am a tall tree ohh
I am a swift wind sweeping the country
I am a river down in the valley ohh
I am a vision and I can see clearly

If anybody asks you who I am
Just stand up tall
Look ’em in the face and say

<Chorus>
I’m that star up in the sky
I’m that mountain peak up high
Hey I made it
Mmm..
I’m the world’s greatest
I’m that little bit of hope
When my backs against the ropes
I can feel it
Mmm..
I’m the world’s greatest
the world greatest,
the world greatest, forever

I am a giant
I am an eagle ooh
I am a lion
Down in the jungle
I am a marching band
I am the people ooh
I am a helping hand
I am a hero

If anybody asks you who I am
Just stand up tall
Look ’em in the face and say

I’m that star up in the sky
I’m that moutain peak up high
Hey, I made it
Mmmm…
I’m the world´s greatest
I’m that little bit of hope
When my backs against the ropes
I can feel it
Mmmm…
I’m the world´s greatest

In the ring of life, I’ll reign love (I will reign)

And the world will notice a king (Oh Yeah..)
When there is darkness, I’ll shine a light (Shine a light..)
And mirrors of success reflect in me
I’m that star up in the sky (uh, uh)
I’m that mountain (peak up high) peak up high
Hey I made It (hey I made it)
I’m the worlds greatest (I’m that little bit)
I’m that little bit of hope (uh, uh)

I’m that little bit of hope (ohhhhhhohhhh)
When my back’s against the ropes ohhhhhh (when my back’s against the ropes)
I can feel it ( I can feel it)
I’m the world’s greatest (repeat)

It’s the greatest
Can you feel it
It’s the greatest

I saw the light
At the end of a tunnel
Believe in the pot of gold
At the end of the rainbow
And faith was right there
To pull me through, yeah
Used to be locked doors
Now I can just walk on through
Hey, uh, hey, hey, hey, yeah
It’s the greatest
I’m that star up in the sky

I’m that star up in the sky
I’m that moutain peak up high
Hey, I made it
I’m the world´s greatest
I’m that little bit of hope
When my backs against the ropes
I can feel it

I’m the world´s greatest

I’m the world´s greatest
I’m that little bit of hope
When my backs against the ropes
I can feel it
