It’s what you do…

Someone might have a germ of talent, but 90% of it is discipline and how you practice it, what you do with it. Instinct won’t carry you through the entire journey. It’s what you do in the moments between inspiration.

Your Character

Success is always temporary. When all is said and done, the only thing you’ll have left is your character

Looking to the future

It is a peculiarity of man that he can only live by looking to the future. And this is his salvation in the most difficult moments of his existence, although he sometimes has to force his mind to the task.

Discomforts

Any change, even a change for the better, is always accompanied by drawbacks and discomforts.

Manage your time

The key to successful time management is doing the most important task first, and giving it your full concentration, to the exclusion of everything else.

Inaction

Just as iron rusts from disuse, even so does inaction spoil the intellect.

Single step

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.

Want more?

If you want more, you have to require more from yourself.

The decision is ours

This is as true in everyday life as it is in battle: We are given one life, and the decision is ours whether to wait for circumstances to make up our mind or whether to act and, in acting, to live.

Stay strong

We may encounter many defeats, but we must not be defeated.
