I love this poem
(‘Brother Square-Toes’—Rewards and Fairies)

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:

If you can dream—and not make dreams your master;
If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with Kings—nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!

"You miss 100% of the shots that you don't take."

-A fighter gets back up, no matter what

-some dream of success while other wake up and work for it

-push yourself, no one is going to do it for you

-I run because I can. When I get tired, I remember those who can't run, what they would give to have this simple gift I t

1)Patience - the gift of being able to see past the emotion.
Rodney Williams

2)He is happy whose circumstances suit his temper; but he is more excellent who can suit his temper to any circumstances.
David Hume

3)Let nothing disturb thee; Let nothing dismay thee; All thing pass; God never changes. Patience attains All that it strives for. He who has God Finds he lacks nothing:God alone suffices.
St. Teresa of Avila

4)Never cut a tree down in the wintertime. Never make a negative decision in the low time. Never make your most important decisions when you are in your worst moods. Wait. Be patient. The storm will pass. The spring will come.
Robert H. Schuller

5)Have patience with all things, But, first of all with yourself.
Saint Francis de Sales

6)The key to everything is patience. You get the chicken by hatching the egg, not by smashing it.
Arnold H. Glasow

7)I have just three things to teach: simplicity, patience, compassion. These three are your greatest treasures.
Lao Tzu
