A Good Attitude

Attitude is a person’s most important asset.
Tom Bradley

Good nature is worth more than knowledge, more than money, more than honor, to the persons who possess it.
Henry Ward Beecher

The only disability in life is a bad attitude.
Scott Hamilton

Accomplishment is 85 percent attitude and 15 percent skill.
Zig Ziglar

If you want to change attitudes, start with a change in behavior. In other words, begin to act the part, as well as you can, of the person you would rather be, the person you most want to become. Gradually, the old, fearful person will fade away.
William Glasser

Do the Impossible

Don’t tell me something is impossible. I founded this company with a potato.
Herman Lay, founder of Frito-Lay

Ignore people who say it can’t be done.
Elaine Rideout

Today’s accomplishments were yesterday’s impossibilities.
Robert Schuller

There are boundless possibilities for us if we dare to act in God and dare to believe.
Smith Wigglesworth

The world is moving so fast these days that the man who says it can’t be done is generally interrupted by someone doing it.
Elbert Hubbard

It’s the Little Things

A man’s accomplishments in life are the cumulative effect of his attention to detail.
John Foster Dulles

No detail is too small if part of an important undertaking.
George Allen

When you see a successful individual, a champion, a “winner,” you can be very sure that you are looking at an individual who pays great attention to the perfection of minor details.
John Wooden

In my experience, almost all bad decisions result from not understanding the details.
Chuck Knight

A knowledge of details has served in many a crisis. A knowledge of details has often caught an error before it became a catastrophe.
Aimee Buchanan

The Power of Work

Every person who has become successful has simply formed the habit of doing things that failures dislike doing and will not do.
John Maxwell

The satisfaction is in the striving.
Dr. Bob Rotella

If you’re going to be a champion, you must be willing to pay a greater price than your opponent.
Bud Wilkinson

It’s a circle. Work and confidence. And more work and more confidence.
Darrell Royal

When you do nothing, you feel overwhelmed and powerless. But when you get involved, you feel the sense of hope and accomplishment that comes from knowing you are working to make things better.
Pauline Kezer

The Power of Confidence

Self-esteem isn’t everything; it’s just that there’s nothing without it.
Gloria Steinem

There is overwhelming evidence that the higher the level of self-esteem, the more likely one will treat others with respect, kindness and generosity. People who do not experience self-love have little or no capacity to love others.
Nathaniel Branden

No one holds a good opinion of a man who has a low opinion of himself.
Anthony Trollope

Self-image sets the boundaries of individual accomplishments.
Maxwell Maltz

The Power of Goals

The key to a happy, productive life is having multiple goals.
Gary Player

If you don’t know where you are going, every road seems like the wrong one.
Susan Page

No one ever accomplishes anything of consequence without a goal. Goal setting is the strongest human force for self-motivation.
Paul Myer

There is a time when we must firmly choose the course we will follow, or the relentless drift of events will make the decision.
Herbert Prochnow

I feel that the most important step in any major accomplishment is setting a specific goal. This enables you to keep your mind focused on your goal and off the many obstacles that will arise when you’re striving to do your best.
Kurt Thomas

Overcome Difficulties

Call the roll in your memory of conspicuously successful business giants and you will be struck by the fact that almost every one of them encountered inordinate difficulties sufficient to crush all but the gamest of spirits. Edison went hungry many times before he became famous.
B.C. Forbes

No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.
Reginna Brett

Most of the significant things done in the world were done by people who were either too busy or too sick. There are few ideal and leisurely settings for the disciplines of growth.
Robert Henderson

Lord, don’t remove my stumbling blocks – just give me strength.
Earl Campbell

A workable and effective way to meet and overcome difficulties is to take on someone else’s problems. It is a strange fact, but you can often handle two difficulties – your own and somebody else’s – better than you can handle your own alone. That truth is based on a subtle law of self-giving or outgoingness whereby you develop a self-strengthening in the process.
Norman Vincent Peale
