"Success doesn't come to you . . . you go to it."
"Good fortune does not happen because of luck. When someone gets a promotion, some people see this as luck. If they took a closer look, however, they would soon recognize how much harder successful people have worked, how much effort they've given, and how much dedication and commitment they've demonstrated in order to go that extra mile."
"Never again clutter your days or nights with so many menial and
unimportant things that you have no time to accept a real challenge when it
comes along. This applies to play as well as work. A day merely survived is

hours when you have the ability to accomplish so much by making a slight
change in your routine. No more busy work. No more hiding from success.
Leave time, leave space, to grow. Now. Now! Not tomorrow!"

Matt Decker, Super Thoughts
"Remember, it does not matter how difficult the situation might
