Let’s be honest, there are moments where we feel like we are stuck on a second gear or when it has not been our day, our month or even our year. And we just need that extra push, that insight to alter our thinking to see things, situations and opportunities from a different perspective. And sometimes one is not just good enough, so here are s e v e n brilliant quotes from great leaders.
„Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; Nothing on Earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude“–Thomas Jefferson
Often times the right opportunities are staring us in the face but our attitude is the main thing that keeps us from chasing the opportunities and leaves us wondering
„Successful people have fear, successful people have doubts, and successful people have worries. They just don’t let their feelings stop them. “- T.Harv Eker
It is more than okay to be scared, and to be doubtful. You see, everyone experiences it but do the thing anyway. Do it d e s p i t e the fear, and the discouragement.
„Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit at home and think about it. Go out and get busy. “– Dale Carneige
No one has ever excelled at something by just thinking about it. Achieving your goals is about patience, realising that it is okay to fail, then try again, and make it happen.
“Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things you did not do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sail. Explore. Dream. Discover.”- Mark Twain
If you only have this one precious life, what do you want to do with it? What do you want to experience during this journey? What is the legacy you want to leave behind? What are the stories you want to tell?
“You didn’t grow up driving…you figured it out.” – Gary Vaynerchuk
It takes hard work to make your dreams and goals happen. Just because you are starting right now and the gap between your current state and the end goal is massive, does not mean you will not make it to the end. Take a deep breath, make the first steps happen, work hard and you will figure out the way to your goals.
“There is no royal road; you’ve got to work a good deal harder that most people want to work.”
– Charles Wilson
Hard work beats talent when talent does not work hard enough. There is no room for excuses, excuses will only slow down your journey. Be patient and work.
“Someone told me growth and comfort do not coexists. And I think that’s a really good thing to remember.” –Ginny Rometty
When was the last time you took a step out of your comfort zone? Instead of wishing actually making things happen? Experienced personal growth, pushed your limits, stared fear right into the eyes?
How about doing something bit scary, something out of your comfort zone this summer? Taking a big step towards reaching your goals? How about spending time abroad, developing your skills, networking, and enjoying the best time while creating a killer CV?
