“A note of caution: We can never
achieve goals that envy sets for us.
Looking at your friends and wishing
you had what they had is a waste of
precious energy. Because we are all
unique, what makes another happy
may do the opposite for you. That's
why advice is nice but often
disappointing when heeded.”

― Marcus Buckingham

well get some satisfaction out of the
relationship.”

― Norman Vincent Peale

our destiny, but our fate is sealed.”

― Paulo Coelho
“You have enemies? Good. That

“The problem with thick skin is that it
leaves you impervious to the sharpest
of pins. Everything becomes dull. But
without that sense of pain, there
cannot be that sense of relief.
Ultimately, the thickened skin leaves
you numb, incapable of feeling the
highs and lows of life. It leaves you
rough like a rock and just as
inanimate.”

― Michael Soll

door to personal excellence.”

― Confucius

engagement and progress in our lives.
But not all challenges are created

fulfilled. Others simply overwhelm us.
Knowing the difference as you set
bigger and bolder challenges for
yourself is critical to your sanity,
success, and satisfaction.”

― Brendon Burchard
“How wonderful it is that nobody

personal excellence.”

nonsense talked about bad men not
looking you in the face. Don't trust
that conventional idea. Dishonesty
will stare honesty out of
countenance any day in the week, if
there is anything to be got by it.”

― Charles Dickens
“Some say that the age of chivalry is
past, that the spirit of romance is
dead. The age of chivalry is never
past, so long as there is a wrong left
unredressed on earth.”

― Charles Kingsley
“Every day is a new opportunity. You
can build on yesterday's success or
put its failures behind and start over
again. That's the way life is, with a
new game every day, and that's the
way baseball is.”

in the world. Set a goal and don't
quit until you attain it. When you do
attain it, set another goal, and don't
quit until you reach it. Never quit.”

“When you are inspired by some great
purpose, some extraordinary project,
all of your thoughts breaks their
bonds: your mind transcends
limitations, your consciousness
expands in every direction and you
find yourself in a new, great and
wonderful world. Dormant forces,
faculties and talents become alive and
you discover yourself to be a greater
person than you ever dreamed
yourself to be.”

- Patanjali
“Knowledge comes, but wisdom
lingers. It may not be difficult to store
up in the mind a vast quantity of facts
within a comparatively short time, but
the ability to form judgments requires
the severe discipline of hard work and
the tempering heat of experience and
maturity.”

― Calvin Coolidge
“People of mediocre ability
sometimes achieve outstanding
success because they don't know
when to quit. Most men succeed
because they are determined to.”

― George Allen, Sr.
“Trust gives you the
permission to give people
direction, get everyone
aligned, and give them the
energy to go get the job done.
Trust enables you to execute
with excellence and produce
extraordinary results. As you
execute with excellence and
deliver on your commitments,
trust becomes easier to
inspire, creating a flywheel of
performance.”

― Douglas Conant
“Greatness is not measured by what a
man or woman accomplishes, but by
the opposition he or she has overcome
to reach his goals.”

essential for success in life - all areas
of life. The really good news is that
anyone can develop both honesty and
integrity.”

― Zig Ziglar
“The most important things are the
hardest things to say. They are the
things you get ashamed of because
words diminish your feelings - words
shrink things that seem timeless
when they are in your head to no
more than living size when they are
brought out.”

― Stephen King
“I write about the power of trying,
because I want to be okay with failing. I
write about generosity because I battle
selfishness. I write about joy because I
know sorrow. I write about faith
because I almost lost mine, and I know
what it is to be broken and in need of
redemption. I write about gratitude
because I am thankful - for all of it.”

― Kristin Armstrong
“Kindness is in our power, even when
fondness is not.”

― Samuel Johnson
