It’s really important that you feel good. Because this feeling good is what goes out as a signal into the universe and starts to attract more of itself to you. So the more you can feel good, the more you will attract the things that help you feel good and that will keep bringing you up higher and higher.
It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.
It's best to have failure happen early in life. It wakes up the Phoenix bird in you so you rise from the ashes.
The way we do Little things determines how we do Everything. ~Robin Sharma
This is an absolutely incredible quote on leadership and one of favorites. Little things that we do on a daily basis dictate what we accomplish in the long run. Today's actions define our tomorrow's successes or failures, our tomorrow's destiny. This one quote, beautifully says it all.
Either write something worth reading, or, do something worth writing ~Benjamin Franklin
