  • Bringing out  strengths and minimising weaknesses

“Whether you think you can, or you think you can't--you're probably right”

Henry Ford

"Watch your thoughts; they become words
Watch your words; they become actions
Watch your actions; they become habits
Watch your habits; they become character
Watch your character; it becomes your destiny”

Frank Outlaw

“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
The slogan "press on" has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race”

Calvin Coolidge

“All pressure is self-inflicted, it’s what you do with it or how you let it run off you”

Sebastian Coe

“Don’t let fear get in the way of your dreams, even if your biggest fear is your biggest dream”

Written on the John Lennon wall in Prague

"Determine never to be idle...It is wonderful how much may be done if we are always doing"

Thomas Jefferson

“Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do”

John Wooden

“Every thought we think is creating our future”

Louise L. Hay

“Every tomorrow has two handles. We can take hold of it with the handle of anxiety or the handle of faith”

Henry Ward Beecher

"Those who try to do something and fail are infinitely better than those who try to do nothing and succeed"

Lloyd Jones

“If I had six hours to chop down a tree, I would spend four hours sharpening the axe”

Abraham Lincoln

Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even
though chequered by failure than to rank with those poor spirits who
neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in a grey twilight
that knows not victory nor defeat”

Theodore Roosevelt

"First say to yourself what you would be; and then do what you have to do"
