Indecision is the seedling of fear.
Desire is the starting point of all achievement, not a hope, not a wish, but a keen pulsating desire which transcends everything.
The battle is all over except the ''shouting'' when one knows what is wanted and has made up his mind to get it, whatever the price may be.
The starting point of all achievement is desire. Keep this constantly in mind. Weak desires bring weak results, just as a small amount of fire makes a small amount of heat.
Through some strange and powerful principle of ''mental chemistry'' which she has never divulged, nature wraps up in the impulse of strong desire, ''that something'' which recognizes no such word as ''impossible,'' and accepts no such reality as failure.
When your desires are strong enough you will appear to possess superhuman powers to achieve.
Man, alone, has the power to transform his thoughts into physical reality; man, alone, can dream and make his dreams come true.
Education comes from within; you get it by struggle and effort and thought.
Effort only fully releases its reward after a person refuses to quit.
No man can succeed in a line of endeavor which he does not like.
Everyone enjoys doing the kind of work for which he is best suited.
We begin to see, therefore, the importance of selecting our environment with the greatest of care, because environment is the mental feeding ground out of which the food that goes into our minds is extracted.
If you cannot do great things, do small things in a great way.
It has always been my belief that a man should do his best, regardless of how much he receives for his services, or the number of people he may be serving or the class of people served.
You can start right where you stand and apply the habit of going the extra mile by rendering more service and better service than you are now being paid for.
