"When you feel like giving up, like calling it quits, just try one more time - do that little bit more."
"Each day is a new life. Each moment is really a new life. What we call memories are really present thoughts. What we call anticipations are really present thoughts. No one has ever lived in any moment except the present."
"You must rise above present discouragement and keep driving steadily and cheerfully forward, as all great persons have had to do."
Dorothea Kopplin, Something to Live By.
Every second you dwell on the past you steal from your future. Every minute you spend focusing on your problems you take away from finding your solutions.
Robin Sharma, Who Will Cry When You Die?
"Every one of us comes into this life with lessons to learn and gifts to give."
Shakti Gawain, The Path of Transformation How Healing Ourselves Can Change The World
"When you face discouragement, you can do one of two things, and the one you choose will color your perspective. You can look at others to place the blame, or you can look at yourself to discover your opportunities. The choice is yours."
John C. Maxwell, The Difference Maker, Making Your Attitude Your Greatest Asset
"If everyone received the encouragement they need to grow, the genius in most everyone would blossom and the world would produce abundance beyond our wildest dreams."
"To make the effort, to chart a new course, to take a risk on a new career building strategy, or to start a brand new business is challenging enough without having to listen to those who have no words of encouragement when times get tough, who offer only the same old way of thinking, who are willing to spend more time whining than doing, or who are jealous of your desires because they are too lazy, too scared, or too willing to keep doing what they've always done and get what they've always got."
Byron Pulsifer, Nothing Ventured, Nothing Gained
"Even when you can't feel deep in your heart any words of encouragement, just believe in your dream and your heart will finally show you the way."
"....the gentle words of encouragement that were meant to strengthen my quests."
