The Power of Action

It doesn’t take great men to do things, but it is doing things that makes men great.
Arnold Glasgow

Never fail to do something because you don’t feel like it. Sometimes you just have to do it now, and you’ll feel like it later.
Marie Freeman

It’s the action, not the fruit of the action, that’s important. You have to do the right thing. It may not be in your power, may not be in your time, that there’ll be any fruit. But that doesn’t mean you stop doing the right thing. You may never know what results come from your action. But if you do nothing, there will be no result.
Mahatma Gandhi

It’s easier to act your way into new ways of feeling than to feel yourself into new ways of acting.
Susan Glaser

Motivation doesn’t really exist outside of action. Motivation is movement. By taking action, by setting out along the path, we start the process, we create our own motivation.
Anthony Grant and Jane Greene

Work Ethic

Once you’ve created a work ethic second to none, and you’ve learned to motivate yourself, you look in the mirror and you see someone different.
Rick Pitino

Watching my father work, the great care and pride he took in painting, made me admire him, though I knew I wouldn’t follow in his footsteps.
Muhammad Ali

My dad was my biggest influence. The thing that he gave to all of his kids was a good sense that you need to work hard and be dedicated and committed to what you are doing. So my work ethic, which I think is a good one, comes straight from my dad.
Tom Lehman

As a kid, I used to wonder why Pop worked so hard. Now I know it was his Old Country values: discipline, responsibility, self-sacrifice and an honest day’s work for an honest day’s pay. He was setting an example for all of us.
Yogi Berra

Though neither rich nor educated, my dad cared for all nine of us, teaching us to work hard and appreciate what we had. We knew everything was attainable, if only we had courage to pursue it. His work ethic carried me to my goals: winning a Silver Medal in the Winter Olympic Games in 1972 and playing for the Detroit Red Wings of the National Hockey League.

Self Motivation

The ones who want to achieve and win championships motivate themselves.
Mike Ditka

Real heroes don’t simply have dreams. They wake up each morning and find a way to motivate themselves to do what it takes to achieve their dreams.
Dr. Bob Rotella

Nobody is going to wind you up every morning and give you a pep talk. So be a self-starter.
Lou Holtz

Success is not the result of spontaneous combustion. You must set yourself on fire.
Fred Shero

Self-motivated people love what they do. They can’t wait to get to work in the morning. They can’t wait to get started. They’re the ones who believe there aren’t enough hours in the day to achieve the goals they’re trying to reach.
