Think of yourself as on the threshold of unparalleled success. A whole, clear, glorious life lies before you. Achieve! Achieve!
Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree.
Success is 99% failure.
Genius is one percent inspiration, and ninety-nine percent perspiration.
When you are asked if you can do a job, tell 'em, 'Certainly I can!'
Then get busy and find out how to do it.
Reflect upon your present blessings, of which every man has many -- not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some.
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
The essence of optimism is that it takes no account of the present, but it is a source of inspiration, of vitality and hope where others have resigned; it enables a man to hold his head high, to claim the future for himself and not to abandon it to his enemy.
The man who acquires the ability to take full possession of his own mind may take possession of anything else to which he is justly entitled.
In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.
Nurture your mind with great thoughts;
to believe in the heroic makes heroes.
All who have accomplished great things have had a great aim, have fixed their gaze on a goal which was high, one which sometimes seemed impossible.
Orison Swett Marden
Act as if it were impossible to fail.
Do not follow where the path may lead. Go, instead, where there is no path and leave a trail.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds you plant.
Robert Louis Stevenson
Always look at what you have left. Never look at what you have lost.
Robert H. Schuller
Throw back the shoulders, let the heart sing, let the eyes flash, let the mind be lifted up, look upward and say to yourself ...
nothing is impossible!
Norman Vincent Peale
