Motivation is like oxygen. You only know it’s missing when you’re gasping for more.
Remember when you thought you were special? That you were going to beat the odds. Then you figured out how bad things were. You started listening to the doubters. Ignorance isn’t just bliss. It’s the secret to staying motivated.
Never forget that it’s going to get brutal before it gets beautiful.
(4) ways to be amazing:
1. Love the unlovable.
2. Laugh when it hurts.
3. Lead when it’s hard.
4. Live dangerously.
A resolution is what you tell your friends. Resolving is what makes you get back up after you’ve failed a few times.
There’s no shortcut for the time that it takes for you to start seeing results.
Follow your heart. Avoid the crowd. Believe your dreams are worth all the effort.
Fight. Cry when it hurts. Lead even though you’re crying. Keep moving towards where you want to be.
Don’t believe everything you don’t hear.
The battlefield of business is not for the faint-of-heart. Stay at home if you don’t want to be shot at.
If you’re looking to do anything more than ordinary you probably need to decide to be comfortable looking like an idiot and sounding like a dreamer.
Until you rip from the roots of your soul the disbelief in your ability to do whatever it takes, you’ll never work hard enough or try long enough to get to where you want to be.
The hard truth about tough problem is that there aren’t any easy answers.
We each have the power to be better and better those around us.
You are never going to like how long it takes to turn your ideas and dreams into life-changing success. But being unlikely is worth it.
You don’t get a third chance at second impressions. You’re not a con man, so stop acting like one.
There are always “good” excuses why life is unfair to you. Why you “always seem” to get the short end of the stick. Life is what you make it. You can explain or aspire.
When you believe you can’t you always seem to find a way to live up to those expectations.
It’s the inglorious resolve of broken dreamers that create heroic moments.
Being awesome isn’t free. It’s going to cost you more than you want to pay.
Nothing works better to keep you inspired than being dissatisfied with where you are in life.
Be you. Be the best you possible. Be(you)tiful.
Nothing that you’re “supposed to do” will ever make you awesome. It will just keep you being ordinary.
Changing might hurt right now, but losing hurts forever.
Never forget that anything you do is because you make a choice to do it.
It doesn’t matter until it does. Make sure you’re paying attention to the details along the way.
What works for someone else isn’t going to work for you.
The only guarantee you get is the one you earn for yourself.
If you’re not dreaming, you’re dying.
Winners don’t give up. They get hurt. They feel pain. They cry. But they keep going.
Live desperate. Challenge your fears. Challenge your foes. Act like what you do matters. It does.
Success comes down to the little things — beliefs, courage, and a relentless pursuit of your dreams.
You’re only as confident in your plan as you are in your potential.
Caring is the difference between the struggle for survival or the the passionate pursuit of excellence.
Suffering is you being prepared for something bigger than you are doing right now.
The only thing you can’t do is what you’re not possessed by a big enough purpose to get done.
Don’t let the pettiness of others around you trick you into giving up on achieving outrageous success.
If you aspire to be greater than you are now, believe more than you do now.
Stop shape-shifting to fit what you think other people want you to be. You’re you. Act like you. And if that “you” isn’t awesome, then work tirelessly to change that.
Every great hero has his flaws. Don’t let denying yours stop you from being one.
Bad things happen to good people because that is life’s way of making good people awesome.
You create your future one thought at a time.
If you don’t believe in yourself, no else’s opinion or support will be enough to motivate you to keep moving.
Every amazing achiever gets told they can’t do something. Winners use that disbelief to drive outrageous results.
The difference between success and failure is just a decision to keep trying.
Dare to try something new. And when you do hit a wall or make a mistake, don’t make excuses. Just try again.
No one can stop you from being amazing faster than you.
