Iyanla Vanzant
“The road of life is strewn with the bodies of promising people. People who show promise, yet lack the confidence to act. People who make promises they are unable to keep. People who promise to do tomorrow what they could do today. Promising young stars, athletes, entrepreneurs who wait for promises to come true. Promise without a goal and a plan is like a barren cow. You know what she could do if she could do it, but she can't. Turn your promise into a plan. Make no promise for tomorrow if you are able to keep it today. And if someone calls you promising, know that you are not doing enough today.”
Iyanla Vanzant, Acts of Faith: Daily Meditations for People of Color

Anthon St. Maarten
“Dare to dream! If you did not have the capability to make your wildest wishes come true, your mind would not have the capacity to conjure such ideas in the first place. There is no limitation on what you can potentially achieve, except for the limitation you choose to impose on your own imagination. What you believe to be possible will always come to pass - to the extent that you deem it possible. It really is as simple as that.”
Anthon St. Maarten

Og Mandino
“Wealth, my son, should never be your goal in life. Your words are eloquent but they are mere words. True wealth is of the heart, not of the purse.”
Og Mandino, The Greatest Salesman in the World

Og Mandino
“No, my son, do not aspire for wealth and labor not only to be rich. Strive instead for happiness, to be loved and to love, and most important to acquire peace of mind and serenity.”
Og Mandino, The Greatest Salesman in the World

“Your days are numbered. Use them to throw open the windows of your soul to the sun. If you do not, the sun will soon set, and you with it.”

Shannon A. Thompson, Seconds Before Sunrise

Bruce Lee, Tao of Jeet Kune Do

G.I. Gurdjieff
“Common aim is stronger than blood.”
G.I. Gurdjieff

Farid al-Din Attar
“The hoopoe said: 'Your heart's congealed like ice;
When will you free yourself from cowardice?
Since you have such a short time to live here,
What difference does it make? What should you fear?
The world is filth and sin, and homeless men
Must enter it and homeless leave again.
They die, as worms, in squalid pain; if we
Must perish in this quest, that, certainly,
Is better than a life of filth and grief.
If this great search is vain, if my belief
Is groundless, it is right that I should die.
So many errors throng the world - then why
Should we not risk this quest? To suffer blame
For love is better than a life of shame.
No one has reached this goal, so why appeal
To those whose blindness claims it is unreal?
I'd rather die deceived by dreams than give
My heart to home and trade and never live.
We've been and heard so much - what have we learned?
Not for one moment has the self been spurned;
Fools gather round and hinder our release.
When will their stale, insistent whining cease?
We have no freedom to achieve our goal
Until from Self and fools we free the soul.
To be admitted past the veil you must
Be dead to all the crowd considers just.
Once past the veil you understand the Way
From which the crowd's glib courtiers blindly stray.
If you have any will, leave women's stories,
And even if this search for hidden glories
Proves blasphemy at last, be sure our quest
Is not mere talk but an exacting test.
The fruit of love's great tree is poverty;
Whoever knows this knows humility.
When love has pitched his tent in someone's breast,
That man despairs of life and knows no rest.
Love's pain will murder him and blandly ask
A surgeon's fee for managing the task -
The water that he drinks brings pain, his bread
Is turned to blood immediately shed;
Though he is weak, faint, feebler than an ant,
Love forces him to be her combatant;
He cannot take one mouthful unaware
That he is floundering in a sea of care.”
Farid al-Din Attar, The Conference of the Birds

Gerard de Marigny
“Goals are your destinations in life; objectives are the stops along the way.”
Gerard de Marigny, The Watchman of Ephraim

Heather Grace Stewart
“You meet dozens of people who tell you you can't do it. Surround yourself with the people who believe you will do it. Seek out and spend time with those rare people who tell you, no BS, why you haven't done it yet, what it takes to do it, and how they could help you do it. Note how this advice works whether 'it' is robbing a bank, opening a gallery, or writing a bestseller. "It" is up to you. But you can't do it alone.”
Heather Grace Stewart, Three Spaces

Thomas Mann
“Wahrscheinlich kann man vom Nichtwollen seelisch nicht leben; eine Sache nicht tun wollen, das ist auf Dauer kein Lebensinhalt.”
Thomas Mann, Mario and the Magician

“How much you can learn when you fail determines how far you will go into achieving your goals.”
Roy Bennett

“Great goals make great people. People cannot hit what they do not aim for.”
Roy Bennett

Charlotte Brontë
“Relinquish! What! my vocation? My great work? My foundation laid on earth for a mansion in heaven? My hopes of being numbered in the band who have merged all ambitions in the glorious one of bettering their race - of carrying knowledge into the realms of ignorance - of substituting peace for war - freedom for bondage - religion for superstition - the hope of heaven for the fear of hell? Must I relinquish that? It is dearer than the blood in my veins. It is what I have to look forward to, and to live for.”
Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

“Be grateful for what you already have while you pursue your goals.”
Roy Bennett

Connor Franta
“Success involves failing first. Ask any successful person. Ask any experienced person, really. It's all part of the creative process, so sit back and allow the artist within you to sprout, blossom and flourish. You must accept that your first, second, and third attempt at something might suck. It's a necessary step in improving your skill. Failure is your teacher, not your judge.”
Connor Franta, A Work in Progress

“4427Our Mind need relax to reach goals.”
Jan Jansen

“If your plan A didn't work then try plan B. If that didnt work either then try plan C and so on. What I want to say is that you must never change your goal. Failure is when you stop thinking of other plans to achieve your goal when the plan A didnt work out for you.”
Andreas Harpas

“Set emergency goals to achieve the main ones. In this way, you won't abandon your resolutions and even failures will make you stronger.”
Victoria Herocten, Awaken Mega Happiness

“If people are not laughing at your Goals, your Goals are not big enough!”
Alex Haditaghi, Softly, As I Leave Her

“During my time in the military it was always preached that complacency could kill you, literally.

Complacency - a feeling of smug or uncritical satisfaction with oneself or one's achievements.

In your business and life complacency can kill as well, it can kill your aspirations, your goals, but more importantly it can kill your dreams.
Take time to celebrate the wins, but keep moving forward, don't get complacent.”
Fernando The SpartanGomez
