No reward is big enough or threat strong enough to convince you that you need to work harder than you think you need to work right now.
What you do won’t matter if doing it right doesn’t matter to you.
Today is the only day you’ll have. Use it like the rare commodity you’ll realize it was tomorrow.
Successful people grind out unsexy progress every day — even when they don’t feel like it.
You can’t deliver a magical experience on a conveyor belt of mediocrity. Take time to do things right.
Winners don’t give up. They get hurt. They feel pain. They cry. But they keep going.
Do not apologize for greatness, achieve it.
The hard truth about hard problems is that they’re never solved doing what is easy.
If you want it bad enough and are willing to work hard enough, for long enough — you can accomplish anything.
The most important power in the world is “will power”. If you “will”, it will eventually happen.
There isn’t anything you can’t do if you’re willing to do all you can.
Trying is ‘winning in the moment’.
Success demands sweat and tears and blood. It’s not an accident that happens in an intellectual laboratory.
Be fit. Physically. Financially. Mentally.
When you can’t manage your priorities, you won’t manage to be successful.
Stop letting fear stop you from a relentless pursuit of greatness.
Progress comes from momentum which is carved from the bedrock of consistent effort.
If you keep moving towards where you want to be, you’ll eventually end up there.
Nothing works better to keep you inspired than being dissatisfied with where you are in life.
Big goals start with small steps.
You won’t be successful at much of anything if you aren’t willing to fight like a maniac to get what you want. You have to enjoy the combat. Relish it. Crave it. Expect it. Plan it.
It’s not what you are willing to do that will make you successful. It’s what you are willing to do without until you get there.
The hard truth about doing hard things is that you have to be the one doing them.
If you want to be lucky, work harder than everyone else around you.
Your ability to win is directly related to your ability to tough it out.
Make a plan. Build a strategy. Be as creative as you can be. Then work like a crazy man to start making your plan a reality.
Change doesn’t happen until you ask hard, uncomfortable questions of yourself.
You can’t be dumb with money and smart with life.
You’ll never be able to achieve audacious acts of greatness without a healthy relationship to money.
There is always a very good reason to give up. That doesn’t mean it’s the right decision to make.
The difference between winning and losing is when you stop trying. Quit quitting.
What works for someone else isn’t going to work for you.
Nothing can replace unrelenting forward progress.
Nothing works if you don’t work.
Your attitude is exactly what you allow it to be.
You can change the world if enough people care alongside you. Apathy is your biggest enemy.
Anything worth doing is worth doing a lot of times. Because that’s what it takes to do something right.
A better idea isn’t really any better than any other idea. What matters is your ability to execute an idea.
There’s no shortcut for the time that it takes for you to start seeing results.
If you’re not working towards your dream today, you are killing your chances for it tomorrow.
If you want something you’ve never had before, you must do something you’ve never done before.
It doesn’t matter until it does. Make sure you’re paying attention to the details along the way.
Doing good doesn’t require any more effort than being self centered — and the company is better.
The right conversation can literally change the rest of your life.
You’re never stuck until you stop heading towards where you want to be.
If you want your circumstances to change, you have to do something to change them. It’s on you.
Be you. Be the best you possible. Be(you)tiful.
They don’t call you crazy once you’ve done it. Only while you’re talking about it.
Changing isn’t hard. Needing to change is very hard.
There is no fast track to achieving amazing goals.
If you’re not fit, your dream will die.
Stop expecting fairness. Life isn’t a fairy tale.
Discipline is the spoonful of sugar that makes your obstacles go down.
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.
To keep your head straight, keep your finances straight.
Being awesome isn’t free. It’s going to cost you more than you want to pay.
The only guarantee you get is the one you earn for yourself.
Nothing changes until you change your intensity.
The secret to being successful is doing the hard things that everyone else is too busy, bored, or bothered to do.
Discipline drives your dreams toward success.
