Live daringly, boldly, fearlessly. Taste the relish to be found in competition — in having to put forth the best within you to match the deeds of risk-taking, hard-working competitors.
Henry J. Kaiser,
If you want to be happy, you have to be happy on purpose. When you wake up, you can’t just wait to see what kind of day you’ll have. You have to decice what kind of day you’ll have.
My will shall shape my future. Whether I fail or succeed shall be no man’s doing but my own. I am the force; I can clear any obstacle before me or I can be lost in the maze. My choice; my responsibility; win or lose, only I hold the key to my destiny.
“A weak mind cannot control its own projections. Be aware, therefore, of your mind and its projections. You cannot control what you do not know. On the other hand, knowledge gives power. In practice it is very simple. To control yourself — know yourself.”
“Cultivate within yourselves the might power of self-discipline.”
Gordon B. Hinckley
“Happiness is dependent on self-discipline. We are the biggest obstacles to our own happiness. It is much easier to do battle with society and with others than to fight our own nature.”
“I could only achieve success in my life through self-discipline, and I applied it until my wish and my will became one.”
“There is no excellent beauty, that hath not some strangeness in the proportion.”
“The future depends on what we do in the present.”
“Peace and happiness shall fill your mind deep within, if you act according to truth and self-discipline.”
“Imagine how pitiful life would be without self-discipline. We would achieve very little.”
“Develop self-discipline. Do what needs to be done, even if you don’t want to do it.”
“It’s easy to make excuses for the lack of self-discipline but excuses don’t get you anywhere.”
It never gets easier, you just get better.
Adversity introduces a man to himself.
Everyone must choose one of two pains: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret.
