You do not have to be a perfect human being to find or create the job that is perfect for you. Everybody else has shortcomings too; nobody else has your unique blend of strengths and skills.
Too many people overvalue what they are not and undervalue what they are.
Positive thinkers look at a goal and begin mapping out the steps they can take to achieve it. They know that no worthy objective can withstand the assault of positive thinking working in tandem with practical action.
The optimist sees the rose and not its thorns; the pessimist stares at the thorns, oblivious of the rose.
Negative thinkers look at a goal and start rattling off reasons why it is foolish to even attempt it.
Self-image sets the boundaries of individual accomplishment.
Ignore the naysayers who bray that you will be wading into a cluttered marketplace filled with cutthroat competitors.
If you want to stand out, don’t be different, be outstanding.
Such skeptics may mean well, but they do not have your passion, your talent, your vision.
The person who says it cannot be done should not interrupt the person doing it.
Those who caution you not to risk too much or reach too high do not know, as you do, that yours was not meant to be an ordinary life.
Nothing splendid has ever been achieved except by those who dared believe that something inside of them was superior to circumstance.
