The secret of success is learning how to use pain and pleasure instead of having pain and pleasure use you. If you do that, you’re in control of your life. If you don’t, life controls you.
Demand more from yourself than anyone else could ever expect.
I’ve come to believe that all my past failure and frustration were actually laying the foundation for the understandings that have created the new level of living I now enjoy.
The only impossible journey is the one you never begin.
If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always gotten.
Once you have mastered time, you will understand how true it is that most people overestimate what they can accomplish in a year – and underestimate what they can achieve in a decade!
If you can’t you must, and if you must you can.
Successful people ask better questions, and as a result, they get better answers.
If you don’t set a baseline standard for what you’ll accept in life, you’ll find it’s easy to slip into behaviours and attitudes or a quality of life that’s far below what you deserve.
In life you need either inspiration or desperation.
It is not what we get. But who we become, what we contribute… that gives meaning to our lives.
It is your decisions, and not your conditions, that determine your destiny.
Take the opportunity to learn from your mistakes: find the cause of your problem and eliminate it. Don’t try to be perfect; just be an excellent example of being human.
Why live an ordinary life, when you can live an extraordinary one.
You are now at a crossroads. This is your opportunity to make the most important decision you will ever make. Forget your past. Who are you now? Who have you decided you really are now? Don’t think about who you have been. Who are you now? Who have you decided to become? Make this decision consciously. Make it carefully. Make it powerfully.
Success is buried on the other side of rejection.
