Stay away from those people who try to disparage your ambitions. Small minds will always do that, but great minds will give you a feeling that you can become great too.
There are only two options regarding commitment. You’re either in or you’re out. There is no such thing as life in-between.
Focus on what you are and what you can rather than what others aren’t & can’t. You have to win; they don’t necessarily have to lose for you!
You don’t find will power, you create it.
Champions keep playing until they get it right.
Billie Jean King
Your hardest times often lead to the greatest moments of your life. Keep going. Though situations build strong people in the end.
Be stronger than your strongest excuse!
I have self-doubt. I have insecurity. I have fear of failure. I have nights when I show up at the arena and I’m like, ‘My back hurts, my feet hurt, my knees hurt. I don’t have it. I just want to chill.’ We all have self-doubt. You don’t deny it, but you also don’t capitulate to it. You embrace it.
It is much more valuable to look for the strength in others. You can gain nothing by criticizing their imperfections.
I read somewhere… how important it is in life not necessarily to be strong, but to feel strong… to measure yourself at least once.
Jon Krakauer, Into the Wild
