Our limitations and success will be based, most often, on your own expectations for ourselves. What the mind dwells upon, the body acts upon.
Life is inherently risky. There is only one big risk you should avoid at all costs, and that is the risk of doing nothing.
You must continue to gain expertise, but avoid thinking like an expert.
Failure should be our teacher, not our undertaker. Failure is delay, not defeat. It is a temporary detour, not a dead end. Failure is something we can avoid only by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
You must stick to your conviction, but be ready to abandon your assumptions.
Time and health are two precious assets that we don't recognize and appreciate until they have been depleted.
That which you create in beauty and goodness and truth lives on for all time to come. Don't spend your life accumulating material objects that will only turn to dust and ashes.
Winners have the ability to step back from the canvas of their lives like an artist gaining perspective. They make their lives a work of art - an individual masterpiece.
The winner's edge is not in a gifted birth, a high IQ, or in talent. The winner's edge is all in the attitude, not aptitude. Attitude is the criterion for success.
The most splendid achievement of all is the constant striving to surpass yourself and to be worthy of your own approval.
Success is almost totally dependent upon drive and persistence. The extra energy required to make another effort or try another approach is the secret of winning.
The results you achieve will be in direct proportion to the effort you apply.
Learn from the past, set vivid, detailed goals for the future, and live in the only moment of time over which you have any control: now.
Don't dwell on what went wrong. Instead, focus on what to do next. Spend your energies on moving forward toward finding the answer.
Losers make promises they often break. Winners make commitments they always keep.
Don't ever let economic alone determine your career or how you spend the majority of your time.
You must accept responsibility for your actions, but not the credit for your achievements.
There are two primary choices in life: to accept conditions as they exist, or accept the responsibility for changing them.
Change the changeable, accept the unchangeable, and remove yourself from the unacceptable.
