#1
Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.
 ~ Confucius

#2
It's time to start living the life we've imagined. 
~ Henry James

#3
The greatest thing in this world is not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving. 
~ Oliver Wendell Holmes

#4
Far and away the best prize that life offers
is the chance to work hard at work worth doing. 
~ Theodore Roosevelt

#5
There are so many things you can learn about.
But you’ll miss the best things if you keep your eyes shut. 
~ Dr. Seuss

#6
Do something for somebody every day for which you do not get paid. 
~ Albert Schweitzer


#7
Before you build a better mousetrap, it helps to know if there are any mice out there. 
~ Yogi Berra

#8
The voyage of discovery is not in looking for new landscapes, but in looking with new eyes. 
~ Anonymous

#9
In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.
~ Albert Einstein

My thought: Some days I’m on a major high - those days when I received a ton of positive comments on my blog, get lots of views on a post I just published, positive comments on social media and "companies" emailing me that they want to work with me! These kind of days are the best kind of days.

Then the other type of days come. No emails coming in, hardly any views on my blog and companies turning me down. Some days I have honestly just wanted to stay in bed. I have thought to myself, “Was it worth it to give up a corporate job if this isn’t even going to go anywhere?” “What if nobody wants to work with me?” “What if people make fun of me?” It's been more than two years since I started my blog and I can happily say it’s been a whirlwind of opportunities.


#10
Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly.
 ~ Robert F. Kennedy

My thought: Hmm . . . Nobody sets out to fail. But if success can only come through failure, I say why not, if not?!

#11
No one ever gets very far unless he accomplishes the impossible at least once a day. 
~ Elbert Hubbard

#12
Any fact facing us is not as important as our attitude toward it,
for that determines our success or failure. 
~ Norman Vincent Peale


#13
The average person puts only 25% of his energy into his work.
The world takes off its hat to those who put in more than 50% of their capacity,
and stands on its head for those few and far between souls who devote 100%.
 ~ Andrew Carnegie

My thought: The Bible does encourage us that whatever our hands finds to do, we should do it with all our strength, all our might and all our heart. That's giving EVERYTHING we've got! Giving less than 100% is invariably a sin. Hmm . . .
 
#14
All of the darkness of the world cannot put out the light of one small candle. 
~ Anonymous

#15
If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams,
and endeavours to live the life which he has imagined,
he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours. 
~ Henry David Thoreau

My thought: I love this #15 quote especially. Although I didn't start out "confidently" because I was so scared about my journey, but I am happier than I ever was. I am working towards living life with the picture engraved in my heart. With God, success is guaranteed! I can't wait to say "And it came to pass!"


#16
Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence.
Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent.
Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb.
Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts.
Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. 
~ Calvin Coolidge

#17
If opportunity doesn't knock, build a door.
~ Milton Berle

#18
It is never too late to be what you might have been. 
~ George Eliot


#19
Excellence is to do a common thing in an uncommon way. 
~ Booker T. Washington

My thought: I like this quote too. Excellence is having God IN you. It reminds me of Daniel, the man with the excellent spirit. I want!

#20
The person who goes farthest is generally the one who is willing to do and dare.
The sure-thing boat never gets far from the shore. 
~ Dale Carnegie

#21
In any moment of decision,
the best thing you can do is the right thing,
the next best thing is the wrong thing,
and the worst thing you can do is nothing. 
~ Theodore Roosevelt

#22
The greatest thing in this world is not so much where we stand,
as in what direction we are moving. 
~ Oliver Wendall Holmes

#23
There is a way to do it better . . . find it.
~ Thomas Edison

#24
Only those who risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go. 
~ T.S. Eliot

Just Go for it! 
You can do it! 

Life really is too short to keep waiting. You don’t want to look back one day and regret staying in a rut when you could have gotten out of it. I know it seems tough, and it probably will be . . . but if you truly want to do something and have a passion for it, stop waiting because the clock is ticking!
