“Would you like me to give you a formula for success? It’s quite simple, really. Double your rate of failure. You are thinking of failure as the enemy of success. But it isn’t at all. You can be discouraged by failure or you can learn from it, So go ahead and make mistakes. Make all you can. Because remember that’s where you will find success.” ~ Thomas J. Watson
This quote couldn’t be more true. No one ever makes it on their first go out of the gate (while maybe one or two But all of the most successful people in the world will tell you that failure is a neccessity to success. But it is so hard to accept this. … Read the rest
“The person who gets the farthest is generally the one who is willing to do and dare. The sure-thing boat never gets far from shore.” ~ Dale Carnegie
My friends and I tend to be big dreamers. We fail a lot! That sounds terrible, but in reality it is good because we dream big and try new things all the time. This quote stood out to me because I feel like those that take the biggest risks in life are always the ones that go the farthest. Of course, taking big risks doesn’t mean that you will always be successful, but the bigger risks you take – the further you can go. By pushing past the boundaries of what has been done before or where your imagination can take you, you can take huge leaps in your life.… Read the rest
“You have brains in your head and feet in your shoes
You can steer yourself any direction you choose.
You’re on your own and you know what you know.
And you are the one who’ll decide where to go.” ~Dr. Seuss
This quote by Dr. Seuss is all about making choices in your life and just being you. So many people will tell you what to do in your life, your teachers, parents, friends and bosses. Most of them mean well, they are giving you advice that has applied to their life, but that doesn’t mean it is the right advice for you and certainly doesn’t mean that you should take it. Sometimes, when other people give you advice it is just down right annoying, and it takes everything you have in you not to tell them off!… Read the rest
“Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets, so love the people who treat you right and forget the ones that don’t and believe that everything happens for a reason. If you get a chance, take it. If it changes your life, Let it. Nobody said that it’s be easy, they just promised it would be worth it.”
This quote is so cute and true. Too often we wake up in the morning with a list of to dos and go through our days like zombies wishing for something different or clinging to something in our pasts. But life really is too short to be going through like a walking drone. So take the focus off of you To Do List and put that same focus where it really should be. … Read the rest
Whether you think you can or think you can’t – you are right.
This quote is one of my favorite quotes of all time because it highlights a truth. When you have confidence in yourself to do something and you believe you can then you can, and when you don’t think you can do something then you can’t. The only person who can decide what you can and can’t do is yourself. Now this doesn’t mean that you can just think you can do anything and then you will magically be able to do them. You can’t just say, I am the best skier in the world and then start bombing some double black diamond’s before you’ve taken any lessons. … Read the rest
You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.
- Steve Jobs
I love this quote from Steve Jobs, because it is so true. You have to trust that whatever choices you have made in your life will eventually sync up in the end. There is never a wasted opportunity, or a wrong choice in life, because every choice you make will eventually lead you to where you have to go.
Many people waste their time regretting their past but that only makes them unable to move forward in their present. … Read the rest
