In 1955, Mr. Jim Huxel, the Principal of my school, pulled me out of the classroom and into his office wherein he gave me swats with a wood panel. I asked him Why me. There were other kids goofing around. Why did you pull only me out of the class.He said, "Because you are smart, you have talent, you can make it - I care about you. Stop goofing around and apply yourself and you will be successful.
I walked out of his office with a very sore butt however, I felt fantastic. Someone cares about me, someone thinks I have talent. Ï can do it - Mr. Huxel said so --- and he was right.

I don't see that achievement is the word success. sometimes things are no longer achievable. Achievement is a hope for me. To continue doing things even though it looks not achievable in time but still there's hope,its still success and achievement. It transcends the mere evidences in life.

Think positive to achieve everything! Always start the day with a smile and do what are the things that will make you happy! Achievements are best cherished if you don't hit anything, just be humble and achieve what you want...

I try to do my best to steer young people in the right direction. Some of them don't want to even hear what I am trying to tell them so I go to others and am happy if one of them listens. I would be a happy camper if I could reach more young people.

In Maaori, the native tongue of New Zealand, the word for values is 'pumanawa'. Pu = centre, core, cause, stump, heart, foundation. Manawa = heart. As you know, we all live out of our values, whether good or bad. Those that are contrary to being 'tika' or 'true', manifest through emotional pain and destructive behaviours. These values are sown into us at an early age and eventually bear fruit. The fruit tree is an excellent picture of this. As David Riddell (top counsellor and creator of the 'School of Living Wisdom') says, if we don't check the foundations, we cannot affect the repairs. Noho ora mai

Nothing can stop you from anything you want to do, providing your motives are pure, your goals are just, and, great or small, you give your all. If you believe it, you can achieve it.

You are never too old to achieve something. My mom is now 45 and she just went back to college to achieve it. You cannot be too old to achieve something like that. I hope you know. My mom taught me that one.

Why can't we all be respectful? Give encouragement to people who need it. Reach out to people who need a helping hand. Be a good citizen. Learn from mistakes, try to not make them again. But if you try everyday and night, you can make it happen. It takes a good person, with common courtesy for the rest of the world.
