Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions.
Small people always do that, but the really great
make you feel that you, too, can become great.
“People are always blaming circumstances for what they are.
I don’t believe in circumstances.
The people who get on in this world are the people
who get up and look for the circumstances they want
and if they can’t find them, make them.”
George Bernard Shaw
“Those who have attained things worth having
in this world have worked while others idled,
have persevered while others gave up in despair,
have practiced the valuable habits of self-denial,
industry, and singleness of purpose.”
“For true success ask yourself these four questions:
Why? Why not? Why not me? Why not now?”
“It’s no use saying, ‘We are doing our best.’
You have got to succeed in doing what is necessary.”
“The successful person places more attention
on doing the right thing rather than doing things right.”
“A leader has the vision and conviction that
a dream can be achieved.
He inspired the power and energy to get it done.”
“If we did all the things we are capable of doing,
we would literally astonish ourselves.”
