People become really quite remarkable when they start thinking that they can do things. When they believe in themselves they have the first secret of success.
Norman Vincent Peale
People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don’t believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and, if they can’t find them, make them.
George Bernard Shaw
Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature.
Failure will never overtake me if my determination to succeed is strong enough.
Be miserable. Or motivate yourself. Whatever has to be done, it’s always your choice.
Niney-nine percent of failures come from people who have the habit of making excuses.
George W. Carver
Don’t say you don’t have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michaelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein.
H. Jackson Brown
When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one that has been opened for us.
Happiness is a perfume you cannot pour on others without getting a few drops on yourself.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
It is never too late to be what you might have been.
