Push yourself

Quote

I always did something I was a little not ready to do. I think that’s how you grow. When there’s that moment of “Wow, I’m not really sure I can do this” and you push through those moments, that’s when you have a breakthrough.

Marissa Mayer

Push yourself!

The tide will turn

When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.

Harriet Beecher Stowe

The man in the glass

When you get what you want in your struggle for self,
And the world makes you king for a day,
Then go to the mirror and look at yourself,
And see what that man has to say.
For it is not a man’s father, mother or wife,
Whose judgement upon him must pass,
The fellow whose verdict counts most in life,
Is the man staring back from the glass.
He’s the fellow to please, never mind all the rest,
For he’s with you clear to the end,
And you’ve passed your most dangerous, difficult test,
If the man in the glass is your friend.
You can fool the whole world down the pathway of years,
And get pats on the back as you pass,
But the final reward will be heartache and tears,
If you’ve cheated the man in the glass.

The positive effects of pressure

To achieve great things, two things are needed. A plan, and not quite enough time.

Leonard Bernstein

Awesome quote! And it is so true.

Having a tight time schedule creates the certain kind of pressure that just gets you to get stuff done. It forces you to get going, which can be extremely motivating.
