Winning isn't everything, but wanting to win is.
Failures do what is tension relieving, while winners do what is goal achieving.
Goals are the fuel in the furnace of achievement.
Brian Tracy, Eat that Frog
The great and glorious masterpiece of man is to know how to live to purpose.
Michel de Montaigne
The ability to convert ideas to things is the secret to outward success.
Henry Ward Beecher
A wise man will make more opportunities than he finds.
In everything the ends well defined are the secret of durable success.
If you don't know where you are going, you'll end up someplace else.
Life can be pulled by goals just as surely as it can be pushed by drives.
The virtue lies in the struggle, not in the prize.
Richard Monckton Milnes
To reach a port, we must sail—Sail, not tie at anchor—Sail, not drift.
There is no happiness except in the realization that we have accomplished something.
Our plans miscarry because they have no aim. When a man does not know what harbor he is making for, no wind is the right wind.
It is not enough to take steps which may some day lead to a goal; each step must be itself a goal and a step likewise.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
There are two things to aim at in life; first to get what you want, and after that to enjoy it. Only the wisest of mankind has achieved the second.
Logan Pearsall Smith
