INSPIRATIONAL THOUGHTS • Last updated

The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life.
Attitude, to me, is more important than facts,
It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than
circumstances, than failures, than success, than what other people
think or say or do.
It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill
It will make or break a company, a church, a home.
The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday
regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day.
We cannot change our past...we cannot change the fact that people
willact in a certain way.
We cannot change the inevitable.
The only thing that we can do is play on the one string we have, and
that is our attitude...
I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react
And so it is with you...
Great things are not done by impulse,
but by a series of small things brought together.
Vincent Van Gogh
Take the first step in faith.
You don't have to see the whole staircase,
just take the first step.
Martin Luther King
Consider how much more you often suffer from your anger and grief,
than from those very things for which you are angry and grieved.
You and I do not see things as they are.
We see things as we are.
Unless commitment is made,
there are only promises and hopes;
but no plans.
Peter F. Drucker
It is one of the most beautiful compensations of this life
that no man can sincerely try to help another without
Ralph Waldo Emerson
If we don't change, we don't grow.
If we don't grow we are not really living.
Growth demands a temporary surrender of security.
It may mean a giving up of familiar but limiting patterns, safe but
unrewarding work, values no longer believed in relationships that
have lost their meaning.
As Dostoevsky put it, "Taking a new step, uttering a new word,
is what people fear most".
The real fear should be of the opposite course.
Do not do what you would undo if caught.
Our hopes are but memories reversed.
All that is necessary to break the spell of inertia and frustration
Act as if it were impossible to fail.
That is the talisman, the formula, the command of right-about-face
which turns us from failure towards success.
Basically, the word means wholeness.
In mathematics, an integer is a number that isn't divided into fractions.
Just so, a man of integrity is not divided against himself.
He does not think one thing and say another.
Each handicap is like a hurdle in a steeplechase,
and when you ride up to it,
if you throw your heart over,
the horse will go along too.
If I had my life to live again.
I'd make the same mistakes, only sooner.
It's been very important throughout my career
that I've met all the guys I've copied,
because at each stage they've said,
"Don't play like me, play like you."
