We cannot change the cards we are dealt, just how we play the hand.
Experience is what you get when you didn’t get what you wanted. And experience is often the most valuable thing you have to offer.
The questions are always more important than the answers.
It’s important to have specific dreams. Dream Big. Dream without fear.
The brick walls are there for a reason. The brick walls are not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. Because the brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it badly enough. They’re there to stop the other people.
A lot of people want a shortcut. I find the best shortcut is the long way, which is basically two words: work hard.
If you want something badly enough, do not give up!
You don’t find time for important things, you make it.
Too many people go through life complaining about their problems. I’ve always believed that if you took one tenth the energy you put into complaining and applied it to solving the problem, you’d be surprised by how well things can work out.
Luck is where preparation meets opportunity.
It’s not how hard you hit. It’s how hard you get hit…and keep moving forward.
Complaining does not work as a strategy. We all have finite time and energy. Any time we spend whining is unlikely to help us achieve our goals. And it won’t make us happier.
We don’t beat the reaper by living longer, but by living well, and living fully-for the reaper will come for all of us. The question is: what do we do between the time we’re born and the time he shows up.
The key question to keep asking is, are you spending your time on the right things? Because time is all you have.
Never lose the child-like wonder. It’s just too important. It’s what drives us.
