Decide carefully, exactly what you want in life, then work like mad to make sure you get it!
The best way to not feel hopeless is to get up and do something. Don’t wait for good things to happen to you. If you go out and make some good things happen, you will fill the world with hope, you will fill yourself with hope.
Willpower is the key to success. Successful people strive no matter what they feel by applying their will to overcome apathy, doubt or fear.
Will power is to the mind like a strong blind man who carries on his shoulders a lame man who can see.
A little more persistence, a little more effort, and what seemed hopeless failure may turn to glorious success.
Put your heart, mind, intellect and soul even to your smallest acts. This is the secret of success.
What it boils down to is this – it’s up to you to get hold of you mind, control it, quiet it. God does the rest. And immediately, as Eckhart says, “The being ready and the pouring in are all one act.
Winners are ordinary people with extraordinary determination.
Do not underestimate the determination of a quiet man.
A dream doesn't become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination and hard work.
The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand.
Keep on going, and the chances are that you will stumble on something, perhaps when you are least expecting it. I never heard of anyone ever stumbling on something sitting down.
The obstacles that distract thought are disease, apathy, doubt, carelessness, indolence, dissipation, false vision, failure to attain a firm basis in yoga, and restlessness.
Any fact facing us is not as important as our attitude toward it, for that determines our success or failure.
Crystallize your goals. Make a plan for achieving them and set yourself a deadline. Then, with supreme confidence, determination and disregard for obstacles and other people's criticisms, carry out your plan.
The greater the obstacle, the more glory in overcoming it.
"You are what your deep, driving desire is.
As your deep, driving desire is, so is your will.
As your will is, so is your deed.
As your deed is, so is your destiny."
Give the world the best you have, and the best will come to you.
Nothing really worth having comes quickly and easily. If it did, I doubt that we would ever grow.
Pursue one great decisive aim with force and determination.
Success is simply a matter of luck. Ask any failure.
If you set goals and go after them with all the determination you can muster, your gifts will take you places that will amaze you.
The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack in will.
Success means having the courage, the determination, and the will to become the person you believe you were meant to be.
A leader, once convinced that a particular course of action is the right one, must be undaunted when the going gets tough.
