“The only thing you really control in life is your preparation. You may be up against more devious, more intelligent, or more excitable people, but you can’t control their conduct, steal their skills, or tranquilize their emotions. You can’t control external events. But if you prepare yourself and your team fully, you know that you will have done all you can do to achieve an optimal result.” ~ Ronald Shapiro, Dare to Prepare

“So often, people take a job because it pays well.  This scenario enables you to have a lifestyle that is supported by that money, and therefore, you find yourself stuck in that job for the rest of your life.  You become a slave to the money, working to keep up with the lifestyle you’ve grown accustomed to instead of enjoying the moment.  When you grow dependent on money, you won’t get to follow your passion. This is why I always advise people never to take a job for the money – especially when you are young and just starting out.  Passion breeds excellence.  When you are good at something, the money always follows.” ~ Blake Mycoskie

“When I was a child, my father used to encourage my brother and me to fail. At the dinner table, instead of asking about the best part of our day, he would ask us what we failed at that week. If we didn’t have something to tell him, he would be disappointed. When we shared whatever failure we’d endured, he’d high-five us and say, ‘Way to go!’ The gift my father gave us by doing this was redefining what failure truly meant.” ~ Sara Blakely

“In our culture, we grow up thinking that failure is a terrible thing, that it’s a setback, or worse, the end. Often it turns out to be the beginning of something better.” ~ Katherine Schwarzenegger

“If you can create a career built on passion, your chances for success, fulfillment, and longevity are far greater than if you take any old job simply for the paycheck.” ~ Katherine Schwarzenegger

“Recognize that it is not really possible to steadily help others when we ourselves are not in good physical, mental, or emotional state. We may be able to carry on for a while, but sooner or later we end up feeling depleted, discouraged, or weak. We cannot keep on giving when we are running on an empty tank. We need to be solid.” ~ Thich Nhat Hanh, Savor

“Practice this. Every action you take today, no matter how little … give it weight. Put some space around it. Start it intentionally, with the intention to be mindful, to inhabit that action fully, to notice with all your senses the entire moment. When the action is done, don’t just rush to the next one, but take half a second to appreciate what you just experienced. Then move to the next with equal weight and space. If you don’t start treating this next action like it’s just as important as what’s coming later, you might never.” ~ Leo Babauta
