The most important thing is to enjoy your life—to be happy—it’s all that matters.

Yes it’s hard but, the good news is, we have a lifetime to try… Let’s be happy! Don’t be afraid to fail. Be afraid to look back when you’re old and gray and realize you never tried. Always remember…

Take a moment

Even if you have a pretty good life, you can still have more. You can definitely start building the life you want and be happy. Take a moment to chill out and avoid stress!

Your Three Motivational Quotes For Thursday, February 09, 2012

The ladder of success is best climbed by stepping on the rungs of opportunity.

– Ayn Rand

– John Foster Dulles

The one phrase that you can use is that success has a thousand fathers, and failure is an orphan.

– Alan Price

Dontever forget that there is a sequence of events which got you to where you are. It’s not like you’re just sitting in a vacuum, there are things happening around you all the time, every single moment of the day. Our major failures are what lead to success, and there can indeed be nothing different.

Your Three Motivational Quotes For Wednesday, February 08, 2012

Success is a science; if you have the conditions, you get the result.

– Oscar Wilde

Success is dependent on effort.

– Sophocles

The most important single ingredient in the formula of success is knowing how to get along with people.

– Theodore Roosevelt

I used to wait for my success to drop into my lap and never take the time to pursue it. I would think that someone would notice me out of the blue, or there would be some magical series of events which would propel me to that nebulous world called ‘success.’ After waiting for many years, I realized that the train wasn’t coming if I didn’t know how to fight to get to the station, so I decided to make my own way and put my own effort into the successes that I’ve achieved. One of the most difficult things to learn was that there is no right time to create your own success, but it can be attracted with lots of hard work and persistence.

What is going to propel you to the success and the goals that you desire? Do you have a plan to take on the world, or are you content to hang out in the stream and wait for something to sweep you along?

– Sam Ewing

Success is a lousy teacher. It seduces smart people into thinking they can’t lose.

– Bill Gates

When you’re successful, you quit. When you call yourself a failure, you have a decision about whether you’re going to get up and back into the fray once more. I often have Lily Tomlin’s concerns about life, because it makes me wonder whether I could have been a success and not have those mediocre surroundings.
