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,
who comes short again and again,
because there is no effort without error and shortcoming;
but who does actually strive to do the deeds;
who knows great enthusiasms,
the great devotions;
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 fails while daring greatly,
so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls
who neither know victory nor defeat.

For every disciplined effort there is a multiple reward.
Develop your willpower
so that you can make yourself do what you should do,
when you should do it,
whether you feel like it or not.
No horse gets anywhere until he is harnessed.
No stream or gas drives anything until it is confined.
No Niagara is ever turned into light and power until it is tunneled.
No life ever grows great until it is focused, dedicated, disciplined.

Consult not your fears
but your hopes and your dreams.
Think not about your frustrations,
but about your unfulfilled potential.
Concern yourself not with what you tried and failed in,
but with what it is still possible for you to do.

All who have accomplished great things have had a great aim,
have fixed their gaze on a goal which was high,
one which sometimes seemed impossible.
Every man who accomplishes things sees first in his mind what he wishes to do.
He puts away all doubt.
It makes no difference how small or how large the thing you want to do may be;
if you have an unlimited confidence in your ability to do it,
you will do it.

A man with a half volition goes backwards and forwards,
and makes no way on the smoothest road;
a man with a whole volition advances on the roughest,
and will reach his purpose,
if there be even a little worthiness in it.
The man without a purpose is like a ship without a rudder
a waif, a nothing, a no man.
Have a purpose in life and having it,
throw such strength of mind and muscle into your work as God has given you.

The best thing in life is
to go ahead with all your plans and your dreams,
to embrace life and to live everyday with passion,
to lose and still keep the faith
and to win while being grateful.
All of this because the world belongs to those who
dare to go after what they want.
And because life is really too short to be insignificant.

Never allow anyone to rain on your parade
and thus cast a pall of gloom and defeat on the entire day.
Remember that no talent, no self-denial, no brains, no character,
are required to set up in the fault-finding business.
Nothing external can have any power over you unless you permit it.
Your time is too precious to be sacrificed in wasted days combating the menial forces of hate, jealously, and envy.
Guard your fragile life carefully.
Only God can shape a flower,
but any foolish child can pull it to pieces.

Commitment is what transforms a promise into reality.
It is the words that speak boldly of your intentions.
And the actions which speak louder than the words.
It is making the time when there is none.
Coming through time after time after time,
year after year after year.
Commitment is the stuff character is made of;
the power to change the face of things.
It is the daily triumph of integrity over skepticism.
A total commitment is paramount to reaching the ultimate in performance.

Smooth seas do not make skillful sailors.
Every problem has in it the seeds of its own solution.
If you don’t have any problems,
you don’t get any seeds.
Even as the stone of the fruit must break,
that its heart may stand in the sun,
so must you know pain….
Accept the seasons of your heart,
even as you have always accepted the seasons that pass over your fields….
An arrow can only be shot by pulling it backward.
When life is dragging you back with difficulties,
it means it’s going to launch you into something great.
So just focus,
and keep aiming.
