Great quotes are words from great minds. You are what you read, who you associate yourself with, where you go, and the music you listen to. If you want to think like them, read like them.
Here are some quotes that will move you closer to your dreams:
The art of being the best
“If you want to be the best, you have to do things that others aren’t willing to do.”– Michael Phelps
If you want to be the best at what you do, you must be willing and ready to do more than what others are doing. You are going to give more than you are paid to do. The key to success is doing more than others.
The art of moving from good to great
“Excellence is the gradual result of always striving to do better.”– Pat Riley
To be excellent at what you do, you must always strive to be better, to do better than others. Remember, you are not competing against others, you are competing against yourself. Never stop striving to be the best.
The art of excellence
“Excellence means when a man or woman asks of himself more than others do.”- Jose Ortega Y Gasset
If you ask of yourself more than other people do, you will be better than other people. Always find ways to do better, to be better. You will reach your dreams if you give your best, not your half.
You will only be remembered for two things
“You will only be remembered for two things: the problems you solve or the ones you create.”- Mike Murdock
You are either a problem solver or a problem creator. There is no award for causing a problem, but there is an award given to people who are committed to solving problems. Be a problem solver, not a problem creator.
Nothing is permanent in life
“Nothing is permanent in this wicked world- not even our troubles.” – Charlie Chaplin
Yes, nothing is permanent in life, not even our successes, our failures, our relationships. Nothing. If you want to be happier, don’t try to make things permanent. Let them go. Practice the art of letting things go. If you do, you will have peace of mind.
The secret of your future
“The secret of your future is hidden in your daily routine.” – Mike MurdocK
Don’t waste your time doing minor things. Focus on what can change your life, not what is going to make it worse. If you want your future to be better than today, you must change the things that are not working for you. What you are doing right now is your tomorrow. So if you want your tomorrow to be really great, pay attention to what you are doing right now.
You are responsible for your future, so take care of it.
