Tough times never last, but tough people do.
Failure is only the opportunity to begin again more intelligently.
The greatest mistake a person can make is to be afraid of making one.
The epitaph on a negative person’s headstone should read, ‘I expected this.’
The size of a person is more important than the size of the problem.
There is a world of difference between a person who has a big problem and a person who makes a problem big.
Why did the achievers overcome problems while thousands are overwhelmed by theirs? They refused to hold on to the common excuses for failure. They turned their stumbling blocks into stepping stones.

Positive thinking will not always change our circumstances, but it will always change us.
A positive pastor in a negative church can turn it around in three years. A negative pastor in a positive church can destroy it in three months.
Great leaders understand that the right attitude will set the right atmosphere, which enables the right response from others.
What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.
Life is 10% of what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it.
Once our minds are ‘tattooed’ with negative thinking, our chances for long-term success diminish.
A leader’s attitude is caught by his followers more quickly than his or her actions.
If you think you are beaten, you are. If you think you dare not, you don’t. If you’d like to win but think you can’t it’s almost certain you won’t. Life’s battles don’t always go to the stronger or faster man, but sooner or later, the man who wins is the man who thinks he can.

It is good to remember that the tea kettle, although up to its neck in hot water, continues to sing.
Words can never adequately convey the incredible impact of our attitude toward life. The longer I live the more convinced I become that life is 10% what happens to us and 90% how we respond to it. I believe the single most significant decision I can make on a day-to-day basis is my choice of attitude. It is more important than my past, my education, my bankroll, my successes or failures, fame or pain, what other people think of me or say about me, my circumstances, or my position. Attitude keeps me going or cripples my progress. It alone fuels my fire or assaults my hope. When my attitudes are right, there s no barrier too high, no valley too deep, no dream too extreme, no challenge too great for me.
