1- Failure is the condiment that gives success its flavor.
2- Don't let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.
3- You may have to fight a battle more than once to win it.
4- A man can be as great as he wants to be. If you believe in yourself and have the courage, the determination, the dedication, the competitive drive and if you are willing to sacrifice the little things in life and pay the price for the things that are worthwhile, it can be done.
5- Real difficulties can be overcome; it is only the imaginary ones that are unconquerable.
6- It is better to fail in originality than to succeed in imitation.
7- What would you do if you weren't afraid.
8- Little minds are tamed and subdued by misfortune; but great minds rise above it.
9- Be miserable. Or motivate yourself. Whatever has to be done, it's always your choice.
10- To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream, not only plan, but also believe.
11- Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no help at all.
12- You measure the size of the accomplishment by the obstacles you had to overcome to reach your goals.
13- You must expect great things of yourself before you can do them.
14- Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.
15- People rarely succeed unless they have fun in what they are doing.
16- There is no chance, no destiny, no fate, that can hinder or control the firm resolve of a determined soul.
17- Our greatest fear should not be of failure but of succeeding at things in life that don't really matter.
18- You've got to get up every morning with determination if you're going to go to bed with satisfaction.
19- A goal is not always meant to be reached; it often serves simply as something to aim at.
20- Success is ... knowing your purpose in life, growing to reach your maximum potential, and sowing seeds that benefit others.
21- The reason most people never reach their goals is that they don't define them, or ever seriously consider them as believable or achievable. Winners can tell you where they are going, what they plan to do along the way, and who will be sharing the adventure with them.
22- In my experience, there is only one motivation, and that is desire. No reasons or principle contain it or stand against it.
23- Success does not consist in never making mistakes but in never making the same one a second time.
24- I don't want to get to the end of my life and find that I lived just the length of it. I want to have lived the width of it as well.
25- Don't let the fear of losing be greater than the excitement of winning.
26- If you want to make a permanent change, stop focusing on the size of your problems and start focusing on the size of you!
27- You can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something--your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.
28- Two roads diverged in a wood and I took the one less traveled by, and that made all the difference.
29- The number one reason people fail in life is because they listen to their friends, family, and neighbors.
30- People who succeed have momentum. The more they succeed, the more they want to succeed, and the more they find a way to succeed. Similarly, when someone is failing, the tendency is to get on a downward spiral that can even become a self-fulfilling prophecy.read all
