My mother said, ‘If you want something in this world, get up off your ass and work for it.’
If you put yourself in a position where you have to stretch outside your comfort zone, then you are forced to expand your consciousness.
It’s okay to be discouraged. It’s not okay to quit. To know you want to quit but to plant your feet and keep inching closer until you take the impenetrable fortress you’ve decided to lay siege to in your own life – that’s persistence.
You are never to old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.
Go as far as you can see; when you get there, you’ll be able to see further.
What’s the tiniest step you can take? Do that first.
A creative man is motivated by the desire to achieve, not by the desire to beat others.
