Whether you think you can or think you can’t- you are right.
Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.
The most important survival ability for any life form is the ability to change.
It’s not that some people have willpower and some don’t. It’s that some people are ready to change and others are not.
-James Gordon M.D.
We either make ourselves miserable, or we make ourselves strong. The amount of work is the same.
Determination gives you the resolve to keep going in spite of the roadblocks that lay before you.
Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any one thing.
Motivation is a fire from within. If someone else tries to light that fire under you, chances are it will burn very briefly.
-Stephen R. Covey
The conscious brain can only hold one thought at a time. Choose a positive thought.
Instead of giving myself reasons why I can’t, I give myself reasons why I can.
If we did all of the things we are capable of doing, we would literally astonish ourselves.
We should be taught not to wait for inspiration to start a thing. Action always generates inspiration. Inspiration seldom generates action.
Much of the stress you experience may be created by recognizing a problem and doing nothing about it.
In order to succeed, your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure.
It takes as much energy to wish as it does to plan.
Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.
The only real failure is the failure to try.
Success seems to be connected with action. Successful people keep moving. They make mistakes, but they don’t quit.
If you always do what you always did, you’ll always get what you always got.
