A creative man is motivated by the desire to achieve, not by the desire to beat others.
Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does.
Always continue the climb. It is possible for you to do whatever you choose, if you first get to know who you are and are willing to work with a power that is greater than ourselves to do it.
Always desire to learn something useful.
Always do your best. What you plant now, you will harvest later.
Be gentle to all and stern with yourself.
Be miserable. Or motivate yourself. Whatever has to be done, it's always your choice.
Be thine own palace, or the world's thy jail.
Begin to be now what you will be hereafter.
Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy.
I can, therefore I am.
I don't believe you have to be better than everybody else. I believe you have to be better than you ever thought you could be.
I was motivated to be different in part because I was different.
I've worked too hard and too long to let anything stand in the way of my goals. I will not let my teammates down and I will not let myself down.
If you ask me what I came into this life to do, I will tell you: I came to live out loud.
If you can dream it, you can do it.
If you don't design your own life plan, chances are you'll fall into someone else's plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much.
If you want to conquer fear, don't sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.
If you want to succeed you should strike out on new paths, rather than travel the worn paths of accepted success.
If you've got a talent, protect it.
In motivating people, you've got to engage their minds and their hearts. I motivate people, I hope, by example - and perhaps by excitement, by having productive ideas to make others feel involved.
It's always too early to quit.
Know or listen to those who know.
Leap, and the net will appear.
Learn from the past, set vivid, detailed goals for the future, and live in the only moment of time over which you have any control: now.
Learning is the beginning of wealth. Learning is the beginning of health. Learning is the beginning of spirituality. Searching and learning is where the miracle process all begins.
No matter how many goals you have achieved, you must set your sights on a higher one.
One may miss the mark by aiming too high as too low.
One person with a belief is equal to a force of ninety-nine who have only interests.
One way to keep momentum going is to have constantly greater goals.
Only the educated are free.
Opportunity does not knock, it presents itself when you beat down the door.
Perseverance is not a long race; it is many short races one after the other.
Poverty was the greatest motivating factor in my life.
Problems are not stop signs, they are guidelines.
Quality is not an act, it is a habit.
Set your goals high, and don't stop till you get there.
Set your sights high, the higher the better. Expect the most wonderful things to happen, not in the future but right now. Realize that nothing is too good. Allow absolutely nothing to hamper you or hold you up in any way.
Setting goals is the first step in turning the invisible into the visible.
Small deeds done are better than great deeds planned.
The dog that trots about finds a bone.
The first step toward success is taken when you refuse to be a captive of the environment in which you first find yourself.
The harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.
The key is to keep company only with people who uplift you, whose presence calls forth your best.
The more man meditates upon good thoughts, the better will be his world and the world at large.
The ultimate aim of the ego is not to see something, but to be something.
The weeds keep multiplying in our garden, which is our mind ruled by fear. Rip them out and call them by name.
The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential... these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence.
The wise does at once what the fool does at last.
There is nothing deep down inside us except what we have put there ourselves.
Things do not happen. Things are made to happen.
To be a good loser is to learn how to win.
To be wholly devoted to some intellectual exercise is to have succeeded in life.
True happiness involves the full use of one's power and talents.
We make the world we live in and shape our own environment.
What is called genius is the abundance of life and health.
What you do today can improve all your tomorrows.
What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.
When you fail you learn from the mistakes you made and it motivates you to work even harder.
When you reach the end of your rope, tie a knot in it and hang on.
Wherever you are - be all there.
Who seeks shall find.
Without hard work, nothing grows but weeds.
You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.
You can never quit. Winners never quit, and quitters never win.
You can't build a reputation on what you are going to do.
You can't expect to hit the jackpot if you don't put a few nickels in the machine.
You can't wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club.
You need to overcome the tug of people against you as you reach for high goals.
You never know what motivates you.
