A man can be as great as he wants to be. If you believe in yourself and have the courage, the determination, the dedication, the competitive drive and if you are willing to sacrifice the little things in life and pay the price for the things that are worthwhile, it can be done.

It is better to keep your mouth closed and let people think you are a fool than to open it and remove all doubt.
The one who overcomes egotism rids themselves of the most stubborn obstacle that blocks the way to all true greatness and all true happiness.
A leader is a person you will follow to a place you wouldn't go by yourself.
The manager administers; the leader innovates. The manager has a short-range view; the leader has a long-range perspective. The manager asks how and when; the leader asks what and why. The manager has his eye on the bottom line; the leader has his eye on the horizon. The manager accepts the status quo; the leader challenges it.
Becoming a leader is synonymous with becoming yourself. It is precisely that simple, and it is also that difficult.
The nation will find it very hard to look up to the leaders who are keeping their ears to the ground.
A boss creates fear, a leader confidence. A boss fixes blame, a leader corrects mistakes. A boss knows all, a leader asks questions. A boss makes work drudgery, a leader makes it interesting. A boss is interested in himself or herself, a leader is interested in the group.
A good leader takes a little more than his share of the blame, a little less than his share of the credit.
Napoleon affords us an example of the danger of elevating one's self to the absolute, and sacrificing everything to the carrying out of an idea.
I hope that my achievements in life shall be these -- that I will have fought for what was right and fair, that I will have risked for that which mattered, and that I will have given help to those who were in need that I will have left the earth a better place for what I've done and who I've been.
Dedicate yourself to the good you deserve and desire for yourself. Give yourself peace of mind. You deserve to be happy. You deserve delight.
Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.
Dwell not on the past. Use it to illustrate a point, then leave it behind. Nothing really matters except what you do now in this instant of time. From this moment onwards you can be an entirely different person, filled with love and understanding, ready with an outstretched hand, uplifted and positive in every thought and deed.
The secret of making something work in your lives is, first of all, the deep desire to make it work: then the faith and belief that it can work: then to hold that clear definite vision in your consciousness and see it working out step by step, without one thought of doubt or disbelief.
True happiness consists not in the multitude of friends, but in the worth and choice.
All I am, or can be, I owe to my angel mother.
How many legs does a dog have if you call the tail a leg? Four. Calling a tail a leg doesn't make it a leg.
The heights by great men reached and kept were not attained by sudden flight, but they, while their companions slept, were toiling upward in the night.
Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The trouble-makers. The round heads in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status-quo. You can quote them. Disagree with them. Glorify, or vilify them. But the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world
Are the ones who do.
We should be lenient in our judgment, because often the mistakes of others would have been ours had we had the opportunity to make them.
Immature love says: I love you because I need you. Mature love says: I need you because I love you.
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.
We will have to repent in this generation not merely for the hateful words and actions of the bad people but for the appalling silence of the good people.
The chief executive who knows his strengths and weaknesses as a leader is likely to be far more effective than the one who remains blind to them. He also is on the road to humility -- that priceless attitude of openness to life that can help a manager absorb mistakes, failures, or personal shortcomings.
Not everything which is bad comes to hurt us.
Our last garment is made without pockets.
If the secret sorrows of everyone could be read on their forehead, how many who now cause envy would suddenly become the objects of pity.
Beware of one who has nothing to lose.
Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.
In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.
The only thing that stands between a man and what he wants from life is often merely the will to try it and the faith to believe that it is possible.
Questions focus our thinking. Ask empowering questions like: What's good about this? What's not perfect about it yet? What am I going to do next time? How can I do this and have fun doing it?
Champions aren't made in the gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them -- a desire, a dream, a vision.
We don't see things as they are, we see things as we are.
