We do not get to choose how we start out in life. We do not get to choose the day we are born or the family we are born into, what we are named at birth, what country we are born in, and we do not get to choose our ancestry. All these things are predetermined by a higher power. By the time you are old enough to start making decisions for yourself, a lot of things in your life are already in place. It’s important, therefore, that you focus on the future, the only thing that you can change.
But if you forgive someone for something they did to you, it doesn’t mean you agree with what they did or believe it was right. Forgiving that person means you have chosen not to dwell on the matter anymore; you have moved on with your life.
Today is a new day and it brings with it a new set of opportunities for me to act on. I am attentive to the opportunities and I seize them as they arise. I have full confidence in myself and my abilities. I can do all things that I commit myself to. No obstacle is too big or too difficult for me to handle because what lies inside me is greater than what lies ahead of me. I am committed to improving myself and I am getting better daily. I am not held back by regret or mistakes from the past. I am moving forward daily. Absolutely nothing is impossible for me.
Success comes from the inside out. In order to change what is on the outside, you must first change what is on the inside.
Failure is constructive feedback that tells you to try a different approach to accomplish what you want.
When you work on something that only has the capacity to make you 5 dollars, it does not matter how much harder you work – the most you will make is 5 dollars.
success awaits those who steadfastly commit to any requisite sacrifice
Like everything in life, it is not what happens to you but how you respond to it that counts.
It is never about who is right or wrong, it is about what is best.
The thrust of continuous action is the firewood which fuels motivation.
Too often, people get stuck in a state of over-thinking, the result is that they never reach a decision.
Compete like you cannot fail.
The first step is the most important. It is the most crucial and the most effective as it will initiate the direction you have chosen.
Act like a champion, and then become one.
If you want to continue to be the best in the world, then you have to train and compete like you are second best in the world.
If you remain static and wait for success to come to you it will certainly not happen.
Nothing could be any worse than having to turn to your friends, your colleagues and your loved ones and say –‘I gave up too soon’.
Success is simply never giving in to failure - either in mind or body.
It is true to say that the secret of a winning formula is the ability to accept that there is a vast area of unexploited potential beyond what you currently perceive to be your maximum.
The only test is what you see when you look in a mirror.
