This message is to all those who have just given up in life, i understand how you feel but you need to know that YOU CAN SCREAM, YOU CAN SHOUT BUT YOU CAN NEVER GIVE UP!! Remember the best preparation for tomorrow is doing well today and just the combination of dreams and determination is power. There is no point worrying about failures the only factor necessary for worrying about is what happens when you don't try. Everyday I want you to tell yourself:
My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style
Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind
There is no royal road to anything. One thing at a time, all things in succession. That which grows fast, withers as rapidly. That which grows slowly, endures.
The critical ingredient is getting off your butt and doing something. It’s as simple as that. A lot of people have ideas, but there are few who decide to do something about them now. Not tomorrow. Not next week. But today. The true entrepreneur is a doer, not a dreamer
To any entrepreneur: if you want to do it, do it now. If you don’t, you’re going to regret it.
I’ve missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times I’ve been trusted to take the game's winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life and that's why I succeed.
There’s nothing wrong with staying small. You can do big things with a small team.
If you just work on stuff that you like and you’re passionate about, you don’t have to have a master plan with how things will play out
Never give in–never, never, never, never, in nothing great or small, large or petty, never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy
There’s lots of bad reasons to start a company. But there’s only one good, legitimate reason, and I think you know what it is: it’s to change the world.
The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand.
When everything seems to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it
Watch, listen, and learn. You can’t know it all yourself. Anyone who thinks they do is destined for mediocrity.
Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do, so throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, Dream, Discover.
You shouldn’t focus on why you can’t do something, which is what most people do. You should focus on why perhaps you can, and be one of the exceptions.
Risk more than others think is safe. Dream more than others think is practical.
I’m convinced that about half of what separates the successful entrepreneurs from the non-successful ones is pure perseverance.
Do not be embarrassed by your failures, learn from them and start again.
For all of the most important things, the timing always sucks. Waiting for a good time to quit your job? The stars will never align and the traffic lights of life will never all be green at the same time. The universe doesn't conspire against you, but it doesn't go out of its way to line up the pins either. Conditions are never perfect. "Someday" is a disease that will take your dreams to the grave with you. Pro and con lists are just as bad. If it's important to you and you want to do it "eventually," just do it and correct course along the way.
hate how many people think, “glass half-empty” when their glass is really four-fifths full. I’m grateful when I have one drop in the glass because I know exactly what to do with it.
It's hard to beat a person who never gives up.
We are currently not planning on conquering the world.
The media wants overnight successes (so they have someone to tear down). Ignore them. Ignore the early adopter critics that never have enough to play with. Ignore your investors that want proven tactics and predictable instant results. Listen instead to your real customers, to your vision and make something for the long haul. Because that's how long it's going to take, guys
