Set Worthy Goals: “I believe we are most likely to succeed when ambition is focused on noble and worthy purposes and outcomes rather than on goals set out of selfishness. If our ambition is to be highly publicized, receive a lot of recognition, attain a position of power or prestige, or make a lot of money, we do not have noble goals. If we are focused away from ourselves and on the team and others, we possess noble goals.” – John Wooden
Choose a Positive Attitude: “Optimism means expecting the best, but confidence means knowing how to handle the worst. Never make a move if you are merely optimistic.” – The Zurich Axioms
Establish Your Priorities: “Decide what you want; decide what you are willing to exchange for it. Establish your priorities and go to work.” – H. L. Hunt
Learn From Experience: “Time ripens all things. No man’s born wise.” – Miguel De Cervantes
Follow Through: “You can’t build a reputation on what you’re going to do.” – Henry Ford
