"DO NOT RESIST CHANCES.
Take them like vitamins.
Let go of the brakes.
See what happens if you go five more miles.
Footbridges be damned, find your own way across.
Don’t worry about the bumps and bruises.
Your body can take them.
Don’t steer around the bits that scare you, go over them, go through them.
Do something the guys in the (game) would be terrified of.
You feel your chin rise up from your chest, and you’ll be able to see
what’s around you. What’s ahead of you.
And there will be one less thing you cannot do.
JUST DO IT. "
"Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising up every time we fail".
Ralph Waldo Emerson
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
What man actually needs is not a tensionless state but rather the
striving and struggling for some goal worthy of him. What he needs is
not the discharge of tension at any cost, but the call of a potential
meaning waiting to be fulfilled by him. "
“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan “press on” has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.”
"Forget mistakes. Forget failures. Forget everything except what you’re going to do today and do it. Today is your lucky day."
