I keep a list of Maxims that motivate or guide me…
Maintain the highest standards of self discipline in all aspects of daily life
Preparation is the key to success !
Perserverence, Responsibility, Integrity, Determination, Excitement.
Engage in the never ending pursuit of excellence
What is it today that tomorrow I will wish I had done yesterday ?
As a man thinketh, then so shall he be
The road to Nirvana is not big and safe, but narrow and steep, but if you walk only on sunny days, you’ll never reach your destination
A balanced life takes discipline
Make the best of what you’ve got, where you are, now
Good timber does not grow with ease, the stronger the wind, the stronger the trees
The meeting of preparation with opportunity produces the offspring we call luck
For every disciplined effort there is multiple reward
Whether you believe you can do something, or believe you can’t … you’re right !
Use it or lose it
Failure is not defeat, just a little more experience
It is a foolish man who professess to be wise
Train hard … fight easy
The only people without problems are those in graves.
Discover a journey, travel it … for this is all that there is
Action dispels fear…
If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you’ve always got. If what you are doing is not working, do something else.
If you don’t have problems, you will never be the person who overcame them.
“The greater danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that it is too low and we reach it.”
“The strangest secret in the world is that you become what you think about.”
“Success is a matter of a few simple disciplines, practiced every day. Failure is a few errors in judgment, repeated every day.”
“To change one’s life:
Do it flamboyantly.
“For a long time it had seemed to me that life was about to begin – real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way. Something to be got through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life.”
-Fr. Alfred D’Souza
