"Failure is an inside job. So is success. If you want to achieve, you have to win the war in your thinking first. You can't let the failure outside you get inside you." -John Maxwell
"Ninety percent of all those who fail are not actually defeated. They simply quit." -Paul J. Meyer
"One of the greatest problems people have with failure is that they are too quick to judge isolated situations in their lives and label them as failures. Instead, they need to keep the bigger picture in mind."
"The better a man is, the more mistakes he will make, for the more new things he will try. I would never promote to a top-level job a man who was not making mistakes... otherwise he is sure to be mediocre." -Peter Drucker
"The fight to take responsibility occurs within. And rarely does talent, intelligence, or opportunity make the difference in whether a person wins that battle. It calls for character." -John Maxwell
"Our business in life is not to get ahead of others, but to get ahead of ourselves-to break our own records, to outstrip our yesterday by our today." Stewart B. Johnson.
"Sooner or later we get just what we expect."
"It is easy to dodge our responsibilities, but we cannot dodge the consequences of our responsibilities." -Sir Josiah Stamp
"If you always do what you've always done, then you will always get what you've always gotten."
That gives me a lot to think about and I hope the same for you.
