“Failure is not having the courage to try, nothing more and nothing less.  The only thing standing between most people and their dreams is the fear of failure.  Yet failure is essential to success in any endeavor.  Failure tests us and allows us to grow.  It offers us lessons and guides us along the path of enlightenment.  The teachers of the East say that every arrow that hits the bull’s eye is the result of one hundred misses.  It is a fundamental Law of Nature to profit through loss.  Never fear failure.  Failure is your friend.” ~ Robin S. Sharma, The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari

If we had to sum this design up into one quote:  “The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life.  Attitude to me is more important than facts.  It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think or say or do.  It is more important than appearance, giftedness, or skill.  It will make or break a company… a church… a home.  The remarkable thing is, we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day.  We cannot change our past… We cannot change the fact that people will act a certain way.  We cannot change the inevitable.  The only thing we can do is plan on the one thing we have, and that is our attitude…  I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it.  And so it is with you… We are in charge of our attitudes.” ~ Charles R. Swindoll

“All success in life, whether material or spiritual, starts with that twelve-pound mass sitting between your shoulders.  Or more specifically, with the thoughts that you put into your mind every second of every minute of every day.  Your outer world reflects the state of your inner world.  By controlling the thoughts that you think and the way you respond to the events of your life, you begin to control your destiny.” ~ Robin S. Sharma, The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari

“To live life to the fullest, you must stand guard at the gate of your garden and let only the very best information enter.  You truly cannot afford the luxury of a negative thought – not even one.  The most joyful, dynamic and contented people of this world are no different from you or me in terms of their makeup.  We are all flesh and bones.  We all come from the same universal source.  However, the ones who do more than just exist, the ones who fan the flames of their human potential and truly savor the magical dance of life do different things than those whose lives are ordinary.  Foremost amongst the things that they do is adopt a positive paradigm about their world and all that is in it.” ~ Robin S. Sharma, The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari

“I am liken to a grain of wheat which faces one of three futures.  The wheat can be placed in a sack and dumped in a stall until it is fed to swine.  Or it can be ground to flour and made into bread.  or it can be placed in the earth and allowed to grow until its golden head divides and produces a thousand grains from one.  I am liken to a grain of wheat with one difference.  The wheat cannot choose whether it be fed to swine, ground for bread, or planted to multiply.  I have a choice and I will not let me life be fed to sine nor will I let it be ground under the rocks of failure and despair to be broken open and devoured by the will of others.  Today I will multiply my value a hundredfold.” ~ Og Mandino, The Greatest Salesman in the World

“So long as I can laugh never will I be poor.  This, then, is one of nature’s greatest gifts, and I will waste it no more.  Only with laughter and happiness can I truly become a success.  Only with laughter and happiness can I enjoy the fruits of my labor.  Were it not so, far better would it be to fail, for happiness is the wine that sharpens the taste of the meal.  To enjoy success I must have happiness, and laughter will be the maiden who serves me.” ~ Og Mandino, The Greatest Salesman in the World

“When I am heavy with heartache I shall console myself that this too shall pass; when I am puffed with success I shall warn myself that this too shall pass.  When I am strangled in poverty I shall tell myself that this too shall pass; when I am burdened with wealth I shall tell myself that this too shall pass. Yea, verily, where is he who built the pyramid?  Is he not buried within its stone?  And will the pyramid, one day, not also be buried under sand?  If all things shall pass why should I be of concern for today?  I will laugh at the world.” ~ Og Mandino, The Greatest Salesman in the World

“I will persist until I succeed.  I was not delivered into this world into defeat, nor does failure course in my veins.  I am not a sheep waiting to be prodded by my shepherd.  I am a lion and I refuse to talk, to walk, to sleep with the sheep.  The slaughterhouse of failure is not my destiny.  I will persist until I succeed.” ~ Og Mandino, The Greatest Salesman in the World
