Empowering Quotes to Help You Get Things Done.

Friday, March 01, 2013

Just because you are struggling does NOT mean you are failing. Every great success requires some kind of struggle to get there.
It doesn’t matter if you’ve failed or if you’ve been beaten. All that matters is that you learn something, get back up, and try again. Because winning is a good feeling, but winning when nobody else thought you could is an awesome feeling.
Stop beating yourself up. You are a work in progress; which means you get there a little at a time, not all at once.
‘Finished last’ will always be better than ‘Did not finish’, which always trumps ‘Did not start.’
Don’t think too much, or you’ll create a problem that wasn’t even there in the first place.
Thinking too long about doing something is often the reason it never gets done.
If you truly want to change your life, you must first change your mind.
Most great things in your life won’t happen by chance, they will happen by choice.
Do not wait until the conditions are perfect to begin. Beginning makes the conditions perfect.
Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try.
There are seven days in the week and someday isn’t one of them.
You don’t have to be great to get started, but you do have to get started to be great.
Sitting on the right track is equivalent to racing down the wrong track.
Procrastinators who say, “There’s always tomorrow!” deny the reality that one day, they will be wrong.
Do something today that your future self will thank you for.
It’s easier to take a small action now instead of a big action ’some day.’
What you do every day matters more than what you do every once in a while.
The real world doesn’t reward perfectionists. It rewards people who get things done.
If you really want to do something, you’ll find a way. If you don’t, you’ll find an excuse.
The best way to prepare for the future is to take care of the present.
