Never stop until your good becomes better, and your better becomes the best...
I am not judged by the number of times I fail, but by the number of times I succeed; and the number of times I succeed is in direct proportion to the number of times I can fail and keep on trying.

Decisiveness is a characteristic of high-performing men and women. Almost any decision is better than no decision at all...

"I would rather make mistakes in kindness and compassion than work miracles in unkindness and hardness."

Mother Teresa

What we have done for ourselves alone, dies with us; what we have done for others and the world, remains and therefore is immortal...
Arriving at one point is the starting point to another...
The value of a man resides in what he gives and not in what he is capable of receiving
A mistake is always forgivable, rarely excusable and always unacceptable...
Plenty of people miss their share of happiness. Not because they never found it, but because they didn't stop to enjoy it...
There is no passion to be found playing small, in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living...

Setting goals is the first step in turning the invisible into the visible...
Remember perseverance is not a long race; it is many short races one after the other...
Kindness is more important than wisdom, and the recognition of this is the beginning of wisdom...

We are all here for some special reason. Stop being a prisoner of your past and become the architect of your future. What are you waiting for?
Do not wait; the time will never be 'just right.' Start where you stand, and work with whatever tools you may have at your command, and better tools will be found as you go along...

What's the difference between education and experience? Education is when you read the fine print; experience is what you get when you don't...
He who has health, has hope; and he who has hope, has everything. What else do we need?

It's never to late to be who you want to be. Your past does not predict your future. It's your decision...
Remember: On the other side of fear, there are great things waiting for you :)
I don't believe you have to be better than everybody else. I simply believe you have to be better than you ever thought you could be...
If you care enough for a result, you will most certainly attain it.

Chains of habit are too light to be felt until they are too heavy to be broken.

A house is not a home unless it contains food and fire for the mind as well as the body.
All things will be produced in superior quantity and quality, and with greater ease, when each man works at a single occupation, in accordance with his natural gifts, and at the right moment, without meddling with anything else.
Action and reaction, ebb and flow, trial and error, change - this is the rhythm of living. Out of our over-confidence, fear; out of our fear, clearer vision, fresh hope. And out of hope, progress...

Fear of failure and fear of the unknown are always defeated by faith. Having faith in yourself, in the process of change, and in the new direction that change sets will reveal your own inner core of steel.

Friendship with ones self is all important, because without it one cannot be friends with anyone else in the world.
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...
Practice means to perform, over and over again in the face of all obstacles, some act of vision, of faith, of desire. Practice is a means of inviting the perfection desired.
In this age, which believes that there is a short
cut to everything, the greatest lesson to be
learned is that the most difficult way is, in the
long run, the easiest.

All difficult things have their origin in that which is easy, and great things in that which is small.

Keeping ridiculous hours doesn't mean you'll be successful! This is something I need to get embedded into my own head...
Far and away the best prize that life has to offer is the chance to work hard at work worth doing...
Freedom consists not in doing what we like, but in having the right to do what we ought... How much longer will we have this right?
Every moment is a golden one for him who has
the vision to recognize it as such.
The problems we face today are because...
The people who work for a living,
are outnumbered by those who vote for a living.
The first step towards getting somewhere is to decide that you are not going to stay where you are.

Honest criticism means nothing: what one wants is
unrestrained passion, fire for fire.
Even a mistake may turn out to be the one thing necessary to a worthwhile achievement... I'm proof of that :)
You will find yourself refreshed by the presence of cheerful people. Why not make earnest effort to confer that pleasure on others? Half the battle is gained if you never allow yourself to say anything gloomy.

If you want to win, do the ordinary things better than anyone else does - day in and day out...
I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day...

Nobody cares if you can't dance well. Just get up
and dance. Great dancers are not great because of
their technique, they are great because of their
passion...

Cheerfulness keeps up a kind of daylight in the mind, and fills it with a steady and perpetual serenity...

Some men have thousands of reasons why they cannot do what they want to, when all they need is one reason why they can.
Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don't mind, it doesn't matter...

Who does not thank for little will not thank for much.
Gratitude is the fairest blossom which springs from the soul.
I honestly think it is better to be a failure at something you love than to be a success at something you hate.

Thursday, November 10, 2011

Life was meant to be lived, and curiosity must be
kept alive. One must never, for whatever reason,
turn his back on life.
Effective leadership is putting first things first. Effective management is discipline, carrying it out.
A vision is not just a picture of what could be; it is an appeal to our better selves, a call to become something more.
Men take only their needs into consideration, never their abilities.

Fixing Yourself

Fixing Yourself

Everybody talks about wanting to change things and help and fix, but ultimately all you can do is fix yourself. And that's a lot. Because if you can fix yourself, it has a ripple effect.

The possibility of stepping into a higher plane

The possibility of stepping into a higher plane is quite real for everyone. It requires no force or effort or sacrifice. It involves little more than changing our ideas about what is normal.

These are the magic keys to living your life with integrity

Have the courage to say no

Have the courage to face the truth

Do the right thing because it is right

These are the magic keys to living your life with integrity

What Is Courage?

What Is Courage?

Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow".
