Don't lower your expectations to meet your performance. Raise your level of performance to meet your expectations. Expect the best of yourself, and then do what is necessary to make it a reality.
Be like a postage stamp. Stick to one thing until you get there.
Don't watch the clock; do what it does. Keep going.
I can accept failure, everyone fails at something. But I can't accept not trying.
The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are.
