Dec 2, 2014 Quotes

Tuesday, December 02, 2014

“A lot of people are afraid to tell the truth, to say no. That's where toughness comes into play. Toughness is not being a bully. It's having backbone.”

“As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.”

― Henry David Thoreau

― Dale Carnegie


"A person who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new."

― Pope John XXIII



“A note of caution: We can never achieve goals that envy sets for us. Looking at your friends and wishing you had what they had is a waste of precious energy.

― Marcus Buckingham


Happy Thanksgiving!

    “You don't have to be great to get started, but you have to get started to be great.”

― Les Brown

I have been screaming this at myself in my head for months now. I have suffered from a bit of extremism in my views in the past. I've thought about here and there, but not the in between. Like, "If you had it in you, you'd have done it." I'm working hard on realizing that there is a path to follow, not a destination to get to.

Thanks for the reminder.
