Nothing is particularly hard if you divide it into small jobs.
This is as true in everyday life as it is in battle: we are given one life, and the decision is ours whether to wait for circumstances to make up our mind, or whether to act, and in acting, to live.
The future is literally in our hands to mold as we like.
But we cannot wait until tomorrow.
Tomorrow is now.
The day will happen whether or not you get up.
When you get into a tight place, and everything goes against you until it seems as though you could not hold on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time when the tide will turn.
-Harriet Beecher Stowe
People who come up with "It may not work" or "What are we going to do if it fails?"
do not have the credentials to be businessmen. If there is only a 1 percent chance
of success, a true businessperson sees that 1 percent as the spark to light a fire.
If I feel depressed I will sing.
If I feel sad I will laugh.
If I feel ill I will double my labor.
If I feel fear I will plunge ahead.
If I feel inferior I will wear new garments.
If I feel uncertain I will raise my voice.
If I feel poverty I will think of wealth to come.
If I feel incompetent I will think of past success.
If I feel insignificant I will remember my goals.
Today I will be the master of my emotions.
I would never have amounted to anything were it not for adversity.
I was forced to come up the hard way.
because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.
You can make more friends in two months by becoming more interested in other people
than you can in two years by trying to get people interested in you.
Great achievement is usually born of great sacrifice,
and is never the result of selfishness.
No wind favors he who has no destined port.
If you want to succeed you should strike out on new paths
rather than travel the worn paths of accepted success.
-John D. Rockefeller
The biggest mistake people make in life
is not trying to make a living at doing what they most enjoy.
Fortune sides with s/he who dares.
You can't build a reputation on what you are going to do.
Far better it is to dare mighty things, even though checkered by failure,
than to take rank with those who neither enjoy much or suffer much,
because they live in the gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.
You must have long term goals
to keep you from being frustrated by short term failures.
-Charles C. Noble
A smooth sea never made a skilled mariner.
There is no failure except in no longer trying.
To finish first, you must first finish.
-Rick Mears, Indy Car Driver
Build a dream and the dream will build you.
Winners have simply formed the habit
of doing things losers don't like to do.
Inches make champions.
I could use a hundred people
who don't know there is such a word as impossible.
There are two freedoms -- the false, where a man is free to do what he likes; the true, where he is free to do what he ought.
Charles Kingsley, author
Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted.
Greatness is not measured by what a man or woman accomplishes, but by the opposition he or she has overcome to reach his goals.
Dr. Dorothy Height
To avoid criticism do nothing, say nothing, be nothing.
Elbert Hubbard, American writer
Strong reasons make strong actions.
