    Great quotes. I kinda like this one from Amelia Earhart.

    The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity. The fears are paper tigers. You can do anything you decide to do. You can act to change and control your life; and the procedure , the process is its own reward.

      and

      fall 7 times, stand up 8

      here's another one:

      "The master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his information and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence at whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he's always doing both."

        One of my favorite is something I learned from a Legendary copywriter named Gary Bencivenga:

        "Why not the best?"

        In your marketing, in your business, in your personal life... you have the choice of giving your best, becoming the best, and finally reaping the best of rewards.

        You don't have to settle for anything less.
