“The direction we’re heading is more important than individual results.” ~ Anthony Robbins, Awaken the Giant Within
“The professional does not wait for inspiration; he acts in anticipation of it.” ~ Steven Pressfield, Turning Pro
“The amateur has a long list of fears. Near the top are two: Solitude and silence. The amateur fears solitude and silence because she needs to avoid, at all costs, the voice inside her head that would point her toward her calling and her destiny. So she seeks distraction. The amateur prizes shallowness and shuns depth. The culture of Twitter and Facebook is paradise for the amateur.” ~ Steven Pressfield, Turning Pro
“Are you paralyzed with fear? That’s a good sign. Fear is good. Like self-doubt, fear is an indicator. Fear tells us what we have to do. Remember our rule of thumb: the more scared we are of a work or calling, the more sure we can be that we have to do it.” ~ Steven Pressfield, The War of Art
“Doing your best is taking the action because you love it, not because you’re expecting a reward. Most people do the exact opposite: They only take action when they expect a reward, and they don’t enjoy the action. And that’s the reason why they don’t do their best.” ~ Don Miguel Ruiz, The Four Agreements
“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
“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
“Pay close attention to what you do when you’re alone. When no-one’s looking, when the house is empty, when the afternoon is yours alone — what you choose to do says a lot about you. Pay close attention to where your mind wanders in the shower. Your natural wanderings are your compass to what’s truly interesting to you.” ~ Nick Crocker, Medium
