Some Encouraging Thoughts to Live By...

Jul 9th 2010 at 5:15 AM

When The Going Gets Tough, It's Time to Get Tough

Sometimes, in your life and in your endeavors, there may be circumstances or people who seem to make it their personal mission to try to make you miserable. If your opinion of yourself is based on what other people say and think about you, then you are in deep trouble.

The truth is, the more skilled and successful you get in any area of your life, the bigger the target you are for critics of all types.

Healthy self-esteem, self-confidence and a positive self-image are the things that will help you feel good about yourself even when you may seem to be failing or even when other people are telling you in one way or another that you're not good enough.

Here are Some Encouraging Thoughts to Live By...

Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great. - Mark Twain

All of us have bad luck and good luck. The person who persists through the bad luck - who keeps right on going - is the person who is there when the good luck comes - and is ready to receive it. - Robert Collier

It is better to be defeated on principle than to win on lies. - Arthur Calwell

The most essential factor is persistence - the determination never to allow your energy or enthusiasm to be dampened by the discouragement that must inevitably come from time to time. - James Whitcomb Riley

Obstacles are like wild animals. They are cowards but they will bluff you if they can. If they see you are afraid of them... they are liable to spring upon you; but... if you look them squarely in the eye, they will slink out of sight. - Orison Swett Marden

Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds. - Albert Einstein

If I were asked to give what I consider the single most useful bit of advice for all humanity it would be this: Expect trouble as an inevitable part of life and when it comes, hold your head high, look it squarely in the eye and say, "I will be bigger than you. You cannot defeat me." - Ann Landers

To fight fear, act. To increase fear - wait, put off, postpone. - David Joseph Schwartz

The greatest mistake a man can make is to be afraid of making one. - Elbert Hubbard

Whether you think you can or think you can't - you are right. - Henry Ford

When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on. - Franklin D. Roosevelt

As long as you know what it is you desire, then by simply affirming that it is yours - firmly and positively, with no ifs, buts, or maybes - over and over again, from the minute you arise in the morning until the time you go to sleep at night, and as many times during the day as your work or activities permit, you will be drawn to those people, places, and events that will bring your desires to you. - Scott Reed

The odds are with us if we keep on trying. - Keith DeGreen

Most people give up just when they're about to achieve success. They quit on the one yard line. They give up at the last minute of the game, one foot from a winning touchdown. - H. Ross Perot

Do not wait; the time will never be "just right." Start where you stand, and work with whatever tools you may have at your command, and better tools will be found as you go along. - Napoleon Hill

No man ever achieved worth-while success who did not, at one time or other, find himself with at least one foot hanging well over the brink of failure. - Napoleon Hill

Worry is the dark room where negatives are developed. - Anonymous

Some defeats are only installments to victory. - Jacob A. Riis

There is no sudden leap into the stratosphere...There is only advancing step by step, slowly and tortuously, up the pyramid toward your goals - Ben Stein
