Saturday #5

You must either modify your dreams or magnify your skills.

You must remain focused on your journey to greatness.

You only have to do very few things right in your life so long as you don’t do too many things wrong.

You shouldn’t focus on why you can’t do something, which is what most people do. You should focus on why perhaps you can, and be one of the exceptions.

You were born to win. But to be a winner, you must plan to win, prepare to win, and expect to win.

You’ve got to say, I think that if I keep working at this and want it badly enough, I can have it. It’s called perseverance.

Your life does not get better by chance. It gets better by change.

Your most unhappy customers are your greatest source of learning.

Your reputation is more important than your paycheck, and your integrity is worth more than your career.

Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do.

Saturday #4

You can fool all the people all the time if the advertising is right and the budget is big enough.

You can’t make anything viral, but you can make something good.

You cannot clap with one hand.

You don’t learn to walk by following rules. You learn by doing and falling over.

You don’t need to have a 100-person company to develop that idea.

You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself, any direction you choose.

You jump off a cliff and you assemble an airplane on the way down.

You just have to pay attention to what people need and what has not been done.

You must be the change you wish to see in the world.

You must do the things you thinks you cannot do.

Saturday #3

Whoever sincerely does, will get. - Man Jadda Wajada.

Why did I want to win? Because I didn’t want to lose!

Winners are not people who never fail, but people who never quit.

Winners take time to relish their work, knowing that scaling the mountain is what makes the view from the top so exhilarating.

Wishing does not make a poor man rich.

With self-discipline most anything is possible.

Wonder what your customer really wants? Ask. Don’t tell.

Yesterday’s home runs don’t win today’s games.

You are not your resume, you are your work.

Saturday #2

We cannot help everyone, but everyone can help someone.

We know what we are, but know not what we may be.

We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the one that is waiting for us.

What do you need to start a business? Three simple things: know your product better than anyone. Know your customer, and have a burning desire to succeed.

When I’m old and dying, I plan to look back on my life and say ‘wow, that was an adventure,’ not ‘wow, I sure felt safe.

When you find an idea that you just can’t stop thinking about, that’s probably a good one to pursue.

Where there is an open mind, there will always be a frontier.

Whether you think you can or whether you think you can’t, you’re right!

Who likes not his business, his business likes not him.

Saturday #1

To waken interest and kindle enthusiasm is the sure way to teach easily and successfully.

To win without risk is to triumph without glory.

Trust your instincts.

Try not to become a person of success, but rather try to become a person of value.

Turn a perceived risk into an asset.

Unity is power.

Wake up every morning with the thought that something wonderful is about to happen.

We are currently not planning on conquering the world.

We are really competing against ourselves, we have no control over how other people perform.

Friday #5

Things work out best for those who make the best of how things work out.

Time is like a sword. If you do not cut, it cuts you.

Time is made of gold.

Timing, perseverance, and ten years of trying will eventually make you look like an overnight success.

To be successful, you have to have your heart in your business, and your business in your heart.

To succeed in business, to reach the top, an individual must know all it is possible to know about that business.

To succeed, you need to find something to hold on to, something to motivate you, something to inspire you.

To the degree we’re not living our dreams; our comfort zone has more control of us than we have over ourselves.

To think creatively, we must be able to look afresh at what we normally take for granted.

To think is easy. To act is difficult. To act as one thinks is the most difficult.

Friday #4

The worst part of success is to try to find someone who is happy for you.

Theory is splendid but until put into practice, it is valueless.

There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hardwork, and learning from failure.

There are no shortcuts to any place worth going.

There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle, or the mirror that reflects it.

There is always tomorrow.

There is no elevator to success. You have to take the stairs.

There is no royal, flower-strewn path to success. And if there is, I have not found it. For if I have accomplished anything in life, it is because I have been willing to work hard.

There’s lots of bad reasons to start a company. But there’s only one good, legitimate reason, and I think you know what it is: it’s to change the world.

There’s nothing wrong with staying small. You can do big things with a small team.
