“The strong-minded rise to the challenge of their goals and dreams.
The weak-minded become haters.”
“Positive energy is your priceless life force.
Protect it.
Don’t allow people to draw from your reserves;
select friends who recharge your energies . . .
I’m not asking you to cut people out of your life,
but I am asking you to invest your time with people
who will push you to be your best
Winners love to see other people win.”

No feeling is final”

But one thing you cannot ever forgive is lack of discipline.”

unless it has at its heart the absolute principal of self-sacrifice.”

“Though you can love what you do not master,
you cannot master what you do not love.”
“There is a big difference between motion and action.

dedication, and clear direction.”

“There is no condition so severe that you cannot reverse it
by choosing different thoughts. However, choosing different
thoughts requires focus and practise. If you continue to focus
as you have been, to think as you have been, and to believe
as you have been, then nothing in your experience will change”

Without self-discipline,
success is impossible,
period.

In essence,
if we want to direct our lives,
we must take control of our consistent actions.
It’s not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives,
but what we do consistently.
Rule your mind or it will rule you.

“When nothing seems to help,

I go look at a stonecutter hammering away at his rock

perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it.

Yet at the hundred and first blow it will split in two,

and I know it was not that blow that did it,

but all that had gone before.”

“Life will break you.
Nobody can protect you from that,
and living alone won’t either,
for solitude will also break you with its yearning.
You have to love.
You have to feel.
It is the reason you are here on earth.
You are here to risk your heart.
You are here to be swallowed up.
And when it happens that you are broken, or betrayed, or left, or hurt,
or death brushes near,
let yourself sit by an apple tree
and listen to the apples falling all around you in heaps,
wasting their sweetness.
Tell yourself you tasted as many as you could.”

Anyone can give up,
it’s the easiest thing in the world to do.
Courage is not the absence fear.
Courage is being scared to death
and doing it anyway.
The brave may not live forever,
but the cautious don’t live at all.
