The essence of life is finding something you really love and then making the daily experience worthwhile.
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.
The winners in life treat their body as if it were a magnificent spacecraft that gives them the finest transportation and endurance for their lives.
As long as we are persistence in our pursuit of our deepest destiny, we will continue to grow. We cannot choose the day or time when we will fully bloom. It happens in its own time.
The most splendid achievement of all is the constant striving to surpass yourself and to be worthy of your own approval.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
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.
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.
Life is the movie you see through your own eyes. It makes little difference what’s happening out there. It’s how you take it that counts.
A smile is the light in your window that tells others that there is a caring, sharing person inside.
The winners in life think constantly in terms of I can, I will, and I am. Losers, on the other hand, concentrate their waking thoughts on what they should have or would have done, or what they can’t do.
Time is the most precious element of human existence. The successful person knows how to put energy into time and how to draw success from time.
The greatest gifts you can give your children are the roots of responsibility and the wings of independence.
Courage means to keep working a relationship, to continue seeking solutions to difficult problems, and to stay focused during stressful periods.
Forget about the consequences of failure. Failure is only a temporary change in direction to set you straight for your next success.
Losers live in the past. Winners learn from the past and enjoy working in the present toward the future.
Don’t dwell on what went wrong. Instead, focus on what to do next. Spend your energies on moving forward toward finding the answer.
Our limitations and success will be based, most often, on your own expectations for ourselves. What the mind dwells upon, the body acts upon.
Never become so much of an expert that you stop gaining expertise. View life as a continuous learning experience.
You have all the reason in the world to achieve your grandest dreams. Imagination plus innovation equals realization.
No man or woman is an island. To exist just for yourself is meaningless. You can achieve the most satisfaction when you feel related to some greater purpose in life, something greater than yourself.
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.
A dream is your creative vision for your life in the future. You must break out of your current comfort zone and become comfortable with the unfamiliar and the unknown.
When you are in the valley, keep your goal firmly in view and you will get the renewed energy to continue the climb.
If you believe you can, you probably can. If you believe you won’t, you most assuredly won’t. Belief is the ignition switch that gets you off the launching pad.
Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude.
Life is inherently risky. There is only one big risk you should avoid at all costs, and that is the risk of doing nothing.
Get excited and enthusiastic about you own dream. This excitement is like a forest fire – you can smell it, taste it, and see it from a mile away.
Mistakes are painful when they happen, but years later a collection of mistakes is what is called experience.
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.
