“Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men
who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given
than to explore the power they have to change it.
Impossible is not a fact.
It’s an opinion.
Impossible is not a declaration.
It’s a dare.
Impossible is potential.
Impossible is temporary.
Impossible is nothing.”
“Today I will do what others won’t,
so tomorrow I can accomplish what others can’t.”

The kind of commitment I find among the best performers
across virtually every field is
a single-minded passion for what they do,
an unwavering desire for excellence in the way they think
and the way they work.
Genuine confidence is what launches you out of bed in the morning,
and through your day with a spring in your step.
The successful person makes a habit of doing
what the failing person doesn’t like to do.
If you want to be successful in a particular field of endeavor,
I think perseverance is one of the key qualities.
The irony of commitment is that it’s deeply liberating
in work, in play, in love.
You’re not obligated to win.
You’re obligated to keep trying to do the best you can every day.

Determination – its the key to all human success.

But by definition – being determined in the face of struggle is difficult.

Sometimes we need support and encouragement,

sometimes we need to figure out what went wrong,

and sometimes we just need to grit our teeth,

pull ourselves up by the bootstraps,

and soldier onward.

At the end of the day,

life is hard for all of us (though to varying degrees),

and there will be many obstacles to what we want from life.

You might look at successful people and from the outside – it looks easy.

You might think you’re putting in as much effort as anyone else.

But the truth is that as humans,

we often overestimate our own determination

and underestimate the determination of those around us.

“I am not judged by the number of times I fail,

but by the number of times I succeed:

and the number of times I succeed is in direct proportion to the number of times I fail and keep trying.”

DO OR DO NOT DO,

THERE IS NOT TRY…..

JUST DO IT

It is not the critic who counts;
not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles,
or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.
The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena,
whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood,
who strives valiantly;
who errs and comes short again and again;
because there is not effort without error and shortcomings;
but who does actually strive to do the deed;
who knows the great enthusiasm,
the great devotion,
who spends himself in a worthy cause,
who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement
and who at the worst,
if he fails,
at least he fails while daring greatly.
So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls
who know neither victory nor defeat.

“Expose yourself to your deepest fear;
after that, fear has no power,
and the fear of freedom shrinks and vanishes.
You are free.”
“I learned that courage was not the absence of fear,
but the triumph over it.
The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid,
but he who conquers that fear.”
“Without fear there cannot be courage.”
“Come to the edge, she said.
We are afraid, they said.
Come to the edge, she said.
They came to the edge,
she pushed them and they flew.”
JUST FRIGGIN’ DO IT !

Procrastination is the thief of time.
Don’t let your want for perfection become procrastination.
Procrastination is the grave in which opportunity was buried.
DO IT NOW
there’s never a perfect time.
Do your best
and you will figure things out as you go…..

If your determination is fixed,
I do not counsel you to despair.
Few things are impossible to diligence and skill.
Great works are performed not by strength,
but perseverance.
The race is not always to the swift,
but to those who keep on running.
Perseverance is not a long race;
it is many short races one after another.
One may go a long way after one is tired.
Let perseverance be your engine
and hope your fuel.

“True freedom is impossible without a mind made free by discipline.”
“Self-control is the chief element in self-respect,
and self-respect is the chief element in courage.”
“Sacrifice is a part of life.
It’s supposed to be.
It’s not something to regret.
It’s something to aspire to.”
“Self-respect is the root of discipline:
The sense of dignity grows
with the ability to say no to oneself.”

“Don’t be afraid of your fears.
They’re not there to scare you.
They’re there to let you know that something is worth it.”
COURAGE IS FEELING THE FEAR
& DOING IT ANYWAYS.
“Courage is the most important of all the virtues
because without courage,
you can’t practice any other virtue consistently.”

what separates the good from the great ?
THAT EXTRA DEGREE….
to get what we’ve never had,
we must do what we’ve never done.
The only thing that stands between a person
and what they want in life
is the will to try it
and the faith to believe it possible.
Many of life’s failures are
men who did not realize how close they were to success
when they gave up.
It’s your life.
You are responsible for the results.
It’s time to turn up the heat.
