    3. "Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly."

    sometime I'm too scare to try new things and believe in myself I can achieve something remarkable. and I set comfort in mediocrity, but in my heart I know I can do better.

    Thanks for sharing these quotes

    Great list. Here's one I like from Oscar Wilde:

    "Anyone who lives within their means suffers from lack of imagination."

    This Oscar Wilde quote is telling you to aim high. Never settle for what is "just there." After all, how else will you improve your quality of life when you're simply sticking with what is "just there." What happens when you finally run out of what is "just there?"

    This quote demands that you make something more of your life. Use your imagination to come up with say, more ways to earn additional income."

    I really love this one too:

    "The talent of success is nothing more than doing what you can do, well."
    Henry W. Longfellow

    I just can't agree more with this one. It dawned on me when I made my very first money online doing what I'm the most proficient in.

    These are just some quotes I've stumble upon over time...What quotes have you carried around with you for the most part of your life?

    I think number 9 is a total winner. We are all creatures of habit. From our thinking, walking, talking , ambition, believes and money making abilities; habits rule.

    Did you know that 70% of people never change religions? That's habit and consistency at work.

    My favourite quote not on that list is from The Pursuit Of Happyness:

    "Don't let somebody tell you you can't do something You got a dream, you gotta protect it. People can't do something themselves they want to tell you you can't do it. You want something, go get it. Period."
