"Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy." "The greater the artist, the greater the doubt. Perfect confidence is granted to the less talented as a consolation prize." "Instead of thinking about where you are, think about where you want to be. It takes twenty years of hard work to become an overnight success." "Try again. Fail again. Fail better."
"If you want to make a permanent change, stop focusing on the size of your problems and start focusing on the size of you!" "Stand up to your obstacles and do something about them. You will find they haven't half the strength you think they have." "Remember that failure is an event, not a person." "If a man does his best, what else is there?"
"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be?"
"Be miserable. Or motivate yourself. Whatever has to be done, it's always your choice." "People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing - that's why we recommend it daily." "Put all excuses aside and remember this: YOU are capable." And "to anyone who ever told you you're no good... They're no better."
