—Vince Lombardi (via jealousyyouhavetoearn)
Being busy does not always mean real work. The object of all work is production or accomplishment and to either of these ends there must be forethought, system, planning, intelligence, and honest purpose, as well as perspiration. Seeming to do is not doing.
—Thomas A. Edison (via jealousyyouhavetoearn)
What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.
—Henry David Thoreau (via jealousyyouhavetoearn)
Don’t dwell on what went wrong. Instead, focus on what to do next. Spend your energies on moving forward toward finding the answer.
—Denis Waitley (via jealousyyouhavetoearn)
Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not: the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.
—Calvin Coolidge (via jealousyyouhavetoearn)
