First say to yourself what you would be; and then do what you have to do.
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.
A real decision is measured by the fact that you've taken a new action. If there's no action, you haven't truly decided.
A good plan today is better than a great plan tomorrow.
George S. Patton
Men are not prisoners of fate, but only prisoners of their own minds.
All life is a chance. The person who goes farthest is the one who is willing to do and dare.
Failures are finger posts on the road to achievement.
C. S. Lewis
Goals provide the energy source that powers our lives. One of the best ways we can get the most from the energy we have is to focus it. That is what goals can do for us: Concentrate our energy.
Men often become what they believe themselves to be. If I believe I cannot do something, it makes me incapable of doing it. But when I believe I can, then I acquire the ability to do it even if I didn't have anything in the beginning.
Hope sees the invisible, feels the intangible and achieves the impossible.
Charles Caleb Colton
We have too many high sounding words, and too few actions that correspond with them.
