A simple rule

There is no substitute for hard work.

Thomas Edison



Slow and steady

There is no royal road to anything. One thing at a time, all things in succession. That which grows fast, withers as rapidly. That which grows slowly, endures.

Josiah Gilbert Holland


Struggle and progress

If there is no struggle there is no progress.

Frederick Douglass


Get a reward

Don’t quit. You’re already in pain. You’re already hurt. Get a reward from it.

Eric Thomas


Small steps

Isn’t it funny how day by day nothing changes, but when we look back everything is different.

C. S. Lewis


Constructive discussion

Honest disagreement is often a good sign of progress.

Mahatma Gandhi


An ongoing path

Achieving your vision doesn’t mean you’ve reached the end of the line. It simply means that you’ve come to a new starting place.
