Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.
Real courage is when you know you're licked before you begin, but you begin anyway and see it through no matter what.
Prayer is asking God to incarnate, to get dirty in your life. Yes, the eternal God scrubs floors. For sure we know he washes feet. So take Jesus at his word. Ask him. Tell him what you want. Get dirty. Write out your prayer requests; don't mindlessly drift through life on the American narcotic of busyness. If you try to seize the day, the day will eventually break you. Seize the corner of his garment and don't let go until he blesses you. He will reshape the day.
When we choose to stay down, we are in reality confusing wisdom with cowardice. When we choose to stand back up, we are using wisdom to overcome cowardice.
When you're at the end of your rope, tie a knot and hold on.
I might not believe in the possibilities, but that in no way diminishes the realities of the opportunities.
It is not a matter of being broken, even though I am in fact quite shattered. It is understanding that my capacity to be fixed always exceeds the extent to which I’m broken.
Do not pray for help when you are facing adversity. Pray for wisdom, strength, and tenacity so that you can overcome it.
The most critical time in any battle is not when I’m fatigued, it’s when I no longer care.
I'm happy for all who reached for the stars happily and successfully.

Greatness is the born of ordinary men who decided to work extraordinarily hard.
The difference between ‘wanting’ something and ‘having’ something is ‘doing’ something.
I don’t know what tomorrow will bring. None of us does. That’s why we get up and go on because, until forever comes, you can’t stay where you are.
I think entrepreneurship is combining a passion with the tenacity to problem-solve and the fearlessness to fail.
