1.Talent can only get you so far. Hard work’s what gets you across the finish line.
2.Stop focusing on what could go wrong and be excited by what could go right.
3.To succeed in life you have to dream big, take chances, and dare to fail.
4.Don’t wait for handouts. Learn to live impatiently and stop at nothing to get what you want from life.
5.No matter how many times you fall and fail, always get up and try again.
6.Forget other people. Compare yourself to yourself and be better than who you were yesterday.
7.When life is getting you down and your future seems bleak, remind yourself that the night is darkest just before the dawn.
8.Your wildest dreams are within your grasp. The only thing left to do is grab it.
9.The first step to success is allowing yourself to dream big. The second step is to take action. And the third is to never stop.
10.As the old saying goes: “today is a gift, that’s why they call it the present”.
11.Success isn’t somewhere out there waiting for you. It’s inside, waiting for you to tap into it. Everything starts with you.
12.Anybody who’s ever done something great has reached a point where they wanted to quit. Where they differ from most people is that they didn’t.
13.Successful people aren’t just lucky. They work for it, sweat for it, bleed for it and cry for it. In other words, they earn it.
14.Every cloud has a silver lining. Get into the habit of seeing the positive and nothing will ever come between you and your dreams.
15.Do not chase success for success’ sake. Pursue what you love and don’t look back. That’s how you truly succeed.
16.You can be the most talented person in the room. But if you don’t work hard, you’ll never reach your fullest potential.
17.You can’t always alter the outside world, but you can control your reaction to it.
18.Be the captain of your ship and, like the conquistadors of old, sail it to the ends of the earth in pursuit of gold and glory.
19.There are 24 hours in a day. How are you using them to make your dreams a reality?
20.Begin each day with the highest expectations for yourself. Forgive yourself 1000 times as the day goes on. And let everything go when it draws to a close.
21.Success and failure ebb and flow, my friend. It’s your job to keep working through it all.
22.As Martin Luther King Jr once famously said: “If you can’t fly, then run. If you can’t run, then walk. If you can’t walk, then crawl. But whatever you do, you have to keep moving.”
23.As challenging as life becomes, remember nothing is forever. Keep your chin up, you head held high, and soon enough it will get better.
24.If life ever gets you down, then wait for a silent night and look up at the stars. Feel the weight of infinity and realize nothing really matters. Dare to dream and allow your spirit to soar.
25.Successful people fail more than most. Rather than being deterred by it, though, they use it as fuel to get back up and try again.
26.If you focus on results, then you’ll never change. If you focus on change, then you’ll get results.
27.A rule of life from Tim Notke: “hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard”.
28.The real winners are those who dig deep and keep grinding even when motivation disappears.
