To solve any problem, here are three questions to ask yourself: First, what could I do? Second, what could I read? And third, who could I ask?
Don't wish it were easier, wish you were better.
You must take personal responsibility. You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, or the wind, but you can change yourself. That is something you have charge of.
How long should you try? Until.
It is the set of the sails, not the direction of the wind that determines which way we will go.
Success is neither magical nor mysterious. Success is the natural consequence of consistently applying the basic fundamentals.
Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.
Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment.
There are only 3 colors, 10 digits, and 7 notes; its what we do with them that's important.
The major reason for setting a goal is for what it makes of you to accomplish it. What it makes of you will always be the far greater value than what you get.
Take care of your body. It's the only place you have to live.
Without a sense of urgency, desire loses its value.
When you know what you want, and want it bad enough, you will find a way to get it.
A good objective of leadership is to help those who are doing poorly to do well and to help those who are doing well to do even better.
Either you run the day or the day runs you.
Don't just read the easy stuff. You may be entertained by it, but you will never grow from it.
Failure is not a single, cataclysmic event. You don't fail overnight. Instead, failure is a few errors in judgement, repeated every day.
Success is steady progress toward one's personal goals
Let others lead small lives, but not you. Let others argue over small things, but not you. Let others cry over small hurts, but not you. Let others leave their future in someone else's hands, but not you.
You don't get paid for the hour. You get paid for the value you bring to the hour.
Character isn't something you were born with and can't change, like your fingerprints. It's something you weren't born with and must take responsibility for forming.
