The resolve to try again is a powerful differentiator between those who are successful and those are not.
Caring is the difference between the struggle for survival or the the passionate pursuit of excellence.
Motion without emotion is just wasted effort.
Big goals and dreams take big effort and lots of time. If you trade in that effort and time for what you can get right now, you’ll never end up doing anything amazing.
Successful start-ups have one really differentiating quality — the art of trying harder.
Take a stand. Why do we feel like we need to trend toward mediocrity so that we fit in with the crowd? The crowd is full of losers and cowards.
Stop expecting fairness. Life isn’t a fairy tale.
Be fit. You can’t go the distance in your business when you can’t go the distance with your body.
Be fit. Physically. Financially. Mentally.
Your dream won’t exist if you don’t persist.
Instead of working smarter than harder, do both.
Live desperate. Challenge your fears. Challenge your foes. Act like what you do matters. It does.
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.
Believing that within you is the ability to change the world is the first step in making a difference.
Anything worth doing is worth doing a lot of times. Because that’s what it takes to do something right.
Nothing is more powerful than the will of man to rise above himself to achieve greatness.
Success demands that you try an absurd number of times.
You can’t always control if you win. You can control if you try again.
If today was the day you were finally going to win, did you show up?
What you obsess about the most you eventually become. Obsess about success.
If you keep moving towards where you want to be, you’ll eventually end up there.
It’s what you do when you’re ‘not feeling like it’ that ultimately determines if you achieve your goals or not. Anybody can do what’s easy when it’s easy.
Never stop moving towards where you want to be.
If you aren’t willing to go the extra mile, you shouldn’t take the first step.
Lay it all on the line and then cross that line.
If you stop doing the right thing before it starts working, you’ve just done the wrong thing.
Every amazing achiever gets told they can’t do something. Winners use that disbelief to drive outrageous results.
No one can take from you what you’re unwilling to give up.
You can stop logic, derail ideas, and sidetrack plans; but passion is undeterred.
Go the extra mile. Then go a thousand more. No warrior ever conquered just doing the bare minimum.
Be vulnerable. Be fearless. Bleed. Fight. Lead.
Effort is the only factor in life that is solely within your own control.
The fastest way to get hurt is to look back while running forward.
Failure tests your dedication to excellence.
Success has a price. If you aren’t prepared to pay it, you shouldn’t expect to achieve it.
You’re only “down and out” if you’re still lying on the floor. Get up and give yourself a chance. Keep fighting.
Working smarter is a result of hard work. Not a replacement for it.
A resolution is what you tell your friends. Resolving is what makes you get back up after you’ve failed a few times.
No one cares about your vision like you.
The difference between success and failure is just a decision to keep trying.
Sometimes you have to look straight into the abyss where danger, pain, and frustration seem likely to crush your dreams and continue forward. This is the moment where you choose your destiny.
To find your true purpose, pursue life with passion.
Being memorable is an investment made long before the gain is realized.
Trying the wrong thing is the better thing than doing nothing. Stop thinking about what to do and just do something.
Challenge tomorrow’s destiny with today’s action.
Working smarter is the luxury you earn once you’ve worked yourself half to death.
You can’t put your feet in a bucket of water and wonder why you can’t seem to catch on fire. Get serious about making a difference. Stop holding back.
Being awesome isn’t free. It’s going to cost you more than you want to pay.
Success means making your long-term goals part of today’s problems.
Sometimes what looks like brilliance is really just guts.
Success isn’t about what you are willing to do. It’s about what you actually end up doing.
Calculate success by the number of times you keep trying.
Anybody can do the easy stuff, but it’s the hard stuff that ultimately determines how successful you become.
They don’t call you crazy once you’ve done it. Only while you’re talking about it.
Nothing works if you don’t work.
Plan to be weak and you will make yourself stronger.
What separates us from each other is our will to win — to get back up and keep going even when things go horribly wrong.
If you think you just can’t make it, you probably won’t.
Live without regrets. Apologize when you hurt people. Pursue greatness.
Courage means there’s a cost. To you.
Just because you’re loud doesn’t mean you’re right.
Nothing is free in life. Not respect. Not vision. Not passion for your purpose. It takes soul.
Trying harder is an attitude rather than a string of activities. It’s determination, not simply doing more.
