The beginning of a habit is like an invisible thread, but every time we repeat the act we strengthen the strand, add to it another filament, until it becomes a great cable and binds us irrevocably, thought and act.
Concentrate all your thoughts on the task at hand. The sun’s rays do not burn until brought to focus.
The only certain means of success is to render more and better service than is expected of you no matter what your task may be.
The first law of success is concentration – to bend all the energies to one point, and to go directly to that point, looking neither to the right nor to the left.
There is one quality that one must possess to win, and that is definiteness of purpose, the knowledge of what one wants and a burning desire to achieve it.
Just begin and the mind grows heated; continue, and the task will be completed!
Failures do what is tension relieving, while winners do what is goal achieving.
There’s no point in failing and then dealing with it by pretending it didn’t happen, or blaming someone else. That would be a wasted opportunity to learn more about yourself and perhaps to identify gaps in your skills, experiences or qualifications. Once you’ve identified the learning you can then take action to make a difference.
Success usually comes to those who are too busy to be looking for it.
Victory is sweetest when you’ve known defeat.
