Mastering others is strength. Mastering yourself is true power.
The older I get, the greater power I have to help the world. I am like a snowball, the further I am rolled, the more I gain.
Susan B. Anthony
Success is focusing the full power of all you are on what you have a burning desire to achieve.
The past cannot be changed. The future is yet in your power.
You will continue to suffer if you have an emotional reaction to everything that is said to you. True power is sitting back and observing things with logic. True power is restraint. If words control you that means everyone else can control you. Breathe and allow things to pass.
The happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts.
Take care of your body. It’s the only place you have to live.
The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity.
Leadership is based on a spiritual quality; the power to inspire, the power to inspire others to follow.
You must never give up into despair. Allow yourself to slip down that road and you surrender to your lowest instincts. In the darkest times, hope is something you give yourself. That is the meaning of inner strength.
