So true, I have changed careers 3 times in my life, by my own choosing, and have found as much disbelief and discouragement as encouragement. The last change was to nursing, a most rewarding career, and I throughly understand and have lived your quote. Thanks for sharing.

Success in not final, failure is not fatal. It is the courage to continue that matters.

Work as though you would live forever, and live as though you would die today. Go another mile!
Og Mandino

You never know what events are going to transpire to get you home.
Og Mandino

Always do your best. What you plant now, you will harvest later.
Og Mandino

Always render more and better service than is expected of you, no matter what your task may be.
Og Mandino

Always seek out the seed of triumph in every adversity.
Og Mandino

Failure will never overtake me if my determination to succeed is strong enough.
Og Mandino

I seek constantly to improve my manners and graces, for they are the sugar to which all are attracted.
Og Mandino

It is those who concentrates on but one thing at a time who advance in this world. The great man or woman is the one who never steps outside his or her specialty or foolishly dissipates his or her individuality.
Og Mandino

Love doesn't sit there like a stone, it has to be made, like bread: remade all the time, made new.
Og Mandino

Sound character provides the power with which a person may ride the emergencies of life instead of being overwhelmed by them. Failure is... the highway to success.
Og Mandino

There is an immeasurable distance between late and too late.
Og Mandino

To be always intending to make a new and better life but never to find time to set about it is as to put off eating and drinking and sleeping from one day to the next until you're dead.
Og Mandino

To do anything truly worth doing, I must not stand back shivering and thinking of the cold and danger, but jump in with gusto and scramble through as well as I can.
Og Mandino

Tomorrow is only found in the calendar of fools.
Og Mandino
