There can be no happiness if the things we believe in are different from the things we do.
We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful about what we pretend to be.
As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.
John F. Kennedy
Our dreams not only point the way to a richer future, they also keep us connected with our guiding values. They serve as rocket fuel that helps us blast past little diversions and temptations that might otherwise lure us off course – Or leave us idling for years at a time.
We all probably know what we wish we would do. And we surely know what we would expect others to do. But until or unless we hold those two pens in our hands, we cannot know what we would actually do.
If you want to know what a man’s like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals.
Joanne K. Rownling (Sirius Black, Harry Potter)
I don’t dream at night, I dream all day; I dream for a living.
Live truth instead of expressing it.
We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much. We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced or values. We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often. We’ve learned how to make a living but not a life. We’ve added years to life, not life to years.
Amateurs train until they get it right. Professionals train until they never get it wrong.
Despite being sport-related this quote is important to everyone!
Think about it: When you learn for something or train for something, what is your goal? Your goal is to get it right. That is a good goal, but it does not help much because when someone asks you if you could you do it, you will hestitate and think to yourself: “Hmm I’ve done it once, but can I do it now? Here? In front of people?” BAM! You lost. Right there.
That is why pros train for never getting it wrong! That’s when you know you get it right every damn time and you can proudly say: “I can do that!”
This should be your goal!
