Preparation is key

You can map out a fight plan or a life plan, but when the action starts, it may not go the way you planned, and you’re down to your reflexes – that means your [preparation:]. That’s where your roadwork shows. If you cheated on that in the dark of the morning, well, you’re going to get found out now, under the bright lights.

Attempt the great challenges

Quote

I’d rather attempt to do something great and fail than to attempt to do nothing and succeed. Robert H. Schuller

Walk your road

It’s your road and yours alone. Others may walk it with you but no one can walk it for you.

Rumi

Cherish your challenges

Quote

I judge you unfortunate because you have never lived through misfortune. You have passed through life without an oponent – no one can ever know what you are capable of, not even you.

Seneca

Accept the challenges

Accept the challenges so that you can feel the exhilaration of victory.

George S. Patton

Facing challenges

Quote

You’ll face changes your entire life. When you encounter one that seems huge, remind yourself of all other challenges you conquered to get here. You faced mountains before – you’ll learn how to overcome this one as well.

Rise through adversity

Storms make trees take deeper roots.

Dolly Parton

Go out there!

Quote

The truth is that the world is full of dragons, and none of us are as powerful or cool as we’d like to be. And that sucks. But when you’re confronted with that fact, you can either crawl into a hole and quit, or you can get out there, take off your shoes, and Bilbo it up.

Patrick Rothfuss
