Success is not to be pursued; it is to be attracted by the person you become.
Success is steady progress toward one's personal goals.
Success is doing ordinary things extraordinarily well.
Either you run the day or the day runs you.

If you don't like how things are, change it! You're not a tree.
You cannot change your destination overnight, but you can change your direction overnight.
Character isn't something you were born with and can't change, like your fingerprints. It's something you weren't born with and must take responsibility for forming.
Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present.
