Give yourself something to work toward - constantly.
Never stand begging for what one has the power to earn.
Failure is not our only punishment for laziness; there is also the success of others.
Don't wish it were easier, wish you were better.
Above all things, respect yourself.
Do you want to know who you are? Don't ask. Act! Action will delineate and define you.
Start by doing what is necessary, then what is possible, and suddenly you are doing the impossible.
Focus on where you want to go, not on what you fear.
Out of your vulnerabilities will come your strength.
It's kind of fun to do the impossible.
When you're at the end of your rope, tie a knot and hold on
A long apprenticeship is the most logical way to success. The only alternative is overnight stardom, but I can't give you a formula for that.
Others have seen what is and asked why. I have seen what could be and asked why not.
We must have perserverence and above all confidence in ourselves. We must believe that we are gifted for something.
We all have possibilities we don't know about. We can do things we don't even dream we can do.
Ideas come from everything
The world is the great gymnasium where we come to make ourselves strong.
We should not give up and we should not allow the problem to defeat us.
In essence, if we want to direct our lives, we must take control of our consistent actions. It's not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives, but what we do consistently.
Some people regard discipline as a chore. For me, it is a kind of order that sets me free to fly.
You'll never do a whole lot unless you're brave enough to try.
