The happiness of your life depends on the quality of your thoughts.
Surround yourself with people who push you to be better.
If you learn from defeat, you haven't really lost.
What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.
Positive thinking will let you do everything better than negative thinking will.
Lack of direction, not lack of time, is the problem. We all have twenty-four hour days.
Of course motivation is not permanent. But then, neither is bathing; but it is something you should do on a regular basis.
Rich people have small TVs and big libraries, and poor people have small libraries and big TVs.
You don't have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great.
When obstacles arise, you change your direction to reach your goal; you do not change your decision to get there.
Among the things you can give and still keep are your word, a smile, and a grateful heart.
The chief cause of failure and unhappiness is trading what you want most for what you want right now.
