Worry

Life follows the 95/5 rule. Ninety-five percent of what we worry about will never happen. And 95 percent of the time, if it does happen, the anticipation has been far worse than the reality.
Roger Crawford

Every morning I spend fifteen minutes filling my mind full of God, so there’s no room left for worry thoughts.
Howard Christy

I try to only worry about things I have control over.
Steve Nash

All worry is caused by calculating without God.
Oswald Chambers

Work doesn’t make a person tired, worry does. It saps your energy and attacks your dreams. It tries to make you believe you can’t succeed when success is almost within your grasp. Win over worry, and you’ll find that victory is at hand.
John Maxwell

Convictions

The men who succeed best in public life are those who take the risk of standing by their own convictions.
James Garfield

Never for the sake of peace and quiet, deny your own experience and convictions.
Dag Hammarskjöld

People of strong convictions are winners.
Bill Johnson

The surest way not to become tired is to lose yourself in something in which you have a profound conviction. You only lose energy when life becomes dull in your mind.
Norman Vincent Peale

Leadership implies movement toward something, and convictions provide that direction. If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything.
Don Shula

Time for Yourself

I have long been in the habit of building joy-breaks into the course of my days – allowing myself certain small pleasures for the express purpose of keeping my attitude bright.
Thomas Kinkade

There must be quite a few things a hot bath won’t cure, but I don’t know many of them.
Sylvia Plath

When you feel tired, frazzled, stressed or overwhelmed, it’s important to stop and refresh your spirit and nurture your body. During a “time-out,” you’ll rekindle your spirit and perhaps even receive some important insights.
Joan Lunden

We often think that it’s okay to work on the weekends or during the evenings, especially if we didn’t have anything else planned. But the truth is that all of us need quality time to replenish our energy.
Mary Lou Retton

Every human being needs a certain amount of time in which he can be peaceful. Peace may take the form of exercise or reading or any congenial occupation; but the one thing which must not be connected with it is a sense of obligation to do some particular thing at some particular time. I had two hundred letters waiting a few days ago and I deliberately spent two hours reading poetry.
Eleanor Roosevelt

The Power of Work

Honest work bears a lovely face, for it is the father of pleasure and the mother of good fortune. It is the keystone of prosperity and the sire of fame. And best of all, work is relief from sorrow and the handmaiden of happiness.
Eugen Bertin

When we accept tough jobs as a challenge and wade into them with joy and enthusiasm, miracles can happen. When we do our work with a dynamic conquering spirit, we get things done.
Arland Gilbert

Most of the world’s useful work is done by people who are pressed for time, or are tired, or don’t feel well.
Douglas Freeman

You can always tell when you are on the road to success; it’s uphill all the way.
Paul Harvey

People see the successes that people have made and somehow they appear to be easy. But that is a world away from the facts. Success is always hard. A person can succeed only by paying out all that he has and is.
Henry Ford

The Power of Work

Success comes to those who know it isn’t coming to them and who go out to get it.
Frank Tyger

I never remember feeling tired by work, though idleness exhausts me completely.
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

I have always found, when I was worrying, that the best thing to do was put my mind upon something, work hard and forget what was troubling me.
Thomas Edison

Nothing comes easily. My work smells of sweat.
Eric Hoffer

Men give me some credit for genius. All the genius I have lies in this: When I have a subject at hand, I study it profoundly. Day and night it is before me. I explore it in all its bearings. My mind becomes pervaded with it. Then the efforts that I make are what people are pleased to call the fruits of genius. It is the fruit of labor and thought.
Alexander Hamilton
