If you don't design your own life plan, chances are you'll fall into someone else's plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much.
You cannot change your destination overnight, but you can change your direction overnight
If you go to work on your goals, your goals will go to work on you. If you go to work on your plan, your plan will go to work on you. Whatever good things we build end up building us.
You must take personal responsibility. You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, or the wind, but you can change yourself. That is something you have charge of.
Take care of your body. It's the only place you have to live.
It is the set of the sails, not the direction of the wind that determines which way we will go.
Either you run the day or the day runs you.
Let others lead small lives, but not you. Let others argue over small things, but not you. Let others cry over small hurts, but not you. Let others leave their future in someone else's hands, but not you.
Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.
Success is neither magical nor mysterious. Success is the natural consequence of consistently applying the basic fundamentals.
How long should you try? Until.
Work harder on yourself than you do on your job.
Success is not to be pursued; it is to be attracted by the person you become
The major reason for setting a goal is for what it makes of you to accomplish it. What it makes of you will always be the far greater value than what you get.
Without a sense of urgency, desire loses its value.
Character isn't something you were born with and can't change, like your fingerprints. It's something you weren't born with and must take responsibility for forming.
Don't wish it were easier, wish you were better.
Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment.
Effective communication is 20% what you know and 80% how you feel about what you know.
Get around people who have something of value to share with you. Their impact will continue to have a significant effect on your life long they have departed.
When you know what you want, and want it bad enough, you will find a way to get it.
