Quote of the Day
Start by doing what's necessary; then do what's possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.
Francis of Assisi
Infuse your life with action. Don't wait for it to happen. Make it happen. Make your own future. Make your own hope. Make your own love. And whatever your beliefs, honor your creator, not by passively waiting for grace to come down from upon high, but by doing what you can to make grace happen... yourself, right now, right down here on Earth.
Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.
Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?'
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Ability is what you're capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it.
Every day we have plenty of opportunities to get angry, stressed or offended. But what you're doing when you indulge these negative emotions is giving something outside yourself power over your happiness. You can choose to not let little things upset you.
Being cool is being your own self, not doing something that someone else is telling you to do.
We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we're curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.
Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
Before you start some work, always ask yourself three questions - Why am I doing it, What the results might be and Will I be successful. Only when you think deeply and find satisfactory answers to these questions, go ahead.
Do what you love to do and give it your very best. Whether it's business or baseball, or the theater, or any field. If you don't love what you're doing and you can't give it your best, get out of it. Life is too short. You'll be an old man before you know it.
If I don't feel confident about my body, I'm not going to sit at home and feel sorry for myself and not do something about it. It's all about taking action and not being lazy. So you do the work, whether it's fitness or whatever. It's about getting up, motivating yourself and just doing it.
Happiness does not come from doing easy work but from the afterglow of satisfaction that comes after the achievement of a difficult task that demanded our best.
Theodore Isaac Rubin
Integrity is doing the right thing, even when no one is watching.
C. S. Lewis
I love making people laugh and feel good, and that's awesome and special for me to be able to do that, but there really is nothing like kicking ass whether it's on a major scale, or whether it's in more of a dramatic fashion. Being physical and taking care of business the old-fashioned way is something that I love doing.
The best preparation for tomorrow is doing your best today.
H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
Being busy does not always mean real work. The object of all work is production or accomplishment and to either of these ends there must be forethought, system, planning, intelligence, and honest purpose, as well as perspiration. Seeming to do is not doing.
Thomas A. Edison
We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.
If you're not making mistakes, then you're not doing anything. I'm positive that a doer makes mistakes.
Management is doing things right; leadership is doing the right things.
No man will make a great leader who wants to do it all himself or get all the credit for doing it.
The greatest thing about where my life is right now is it's very relaxed and chill. I'm just hanging out, being myself and doing my work.
Focus on the journey, not the destination. Joy is found not in finishing an activity but in doing it.
I don't believe that if you do good, good things will happen. Everything is completely accidental and random. Sometimes bad things happen to very good people and sometimes good things happen to bad people. But at least if you try to do good things, then you're spending your time doing something worthwhile.
I'm saying to be a hero is means you step across the line and are willing to make a sacrifice, so heroes always are making a sacrifice. Heroes always take a risk. Heroes always deviant. Heroes always doing something that most people don't and we want to change - I want to democratise heroism to say any of us can be a hero.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
