Don’t worry about failures, worry about the chances you miss when you don’t even try.
A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.
Do what you can, where you are, with what you have.
There is only one way to avoid criticism: Do nothing, say nothing, and be nothing.
The best revenge is massive success.
Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.
Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.
When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.
The question I ask myself almost every day is, ‘Am I doing the most important thing I could be doing?
Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant.
Robert Louis Stevenson
Pearls don’t lie on the seashore. If you want one, you must dive for it.
You can’t outwit fate by standing on the sidelines placing little side bets about the outcome of life. Either you wade in and risk everything you have to play the game or you don’t play at all. And if you don’t play you can’t win.
Always go with your passions. Never ask yourself if it’s realistic or not.
Often the difference between a successful person and a failure is not one has better abilities or ideas, but the courage that one has to bet on one’s ideas, to take a calculated risk and to act.
You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backward. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something; your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.
Life is inherently risky. There is only one big risk you should avoid at all costs, and that is the risk of doing nothing.
Do the one thing you think you cannot do. Fail at it. Try again. Do better the second time. The only people who never tumble are those who never mount the high wire. This is your moment. Own it.
The universe has no restrictions. You place restrictions on the universe with your expectations.
Think big and don’t listen to people who tell you it can’t be done. Life is too short to think small.
Do one thing every day that scares you.
Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.
Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man’s character, give him power.
Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.
Success is a lousy teacher. It seduces smart people into thinking they can’t lose.
If you think you can do a thing or think you can’t do a thing, you’re right.
When you undervalue what you do, the world will undervalue who you are.
What separates the winners from the losers is how a person reacts to each new twist of fate.
The image is one thing and the human being is another. It’s very hard to live up to an image, put it that way.
The reality is: sometimes you lose. And you’re never too good to lose. You’re never too big to lose. You’re never too smart to lose. It happens.
Let us not seek the Republican answer or the Democratic answer, but the right answer. Let us not seek to fix the blame for the past. Let us accept our own responsibility for the future.
John F. Kennedy
You can’t put a limit on anything. The more you dream, the farther you get.
You must expect great things of yourself before you can do them.
Be not afraid of greatness; some are born great, some achieve greatness, and others have greatness thrust upon them.
You only have one life, and if it is not going in the direction you want it to, now is the time to make changes.
Your sacred space is where you can find yourself over and over again.
Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier.
