Today, a few quotes about succeeding “because of,” not “in spite of.”
Planning and taking action, with intent, rather than seeing what happens and trying to dig out. (The latter, by the way, is like finding oneself in a hole and trying to turn it into a hill. And yes, that can be an important skill in life, too).
Now, the quotes:
The future depends on what we do in the present.
– Mahatma Gandhi
The bad news is time flies. The good news is you’re the pilot.
– Michael Altshuler
We wanted Nike to be the world’s best sports and fitness company.
Once you say that, you have a focus. You don’t end up making wing
tips or sponsoring the next Rolling Stones world tour.
– Philip Knight
People with clear, written goals accomplish far more in a shorter
period of time than people without them could ever imagine.
– Brian Tracy
Don’t say you don’t have enough time. You have exactly the same
number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur,
Michelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson,
and Albert Einstein.
– H. Jackson Brown
