The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, or a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack of will.
We control our actions, but the consequences that flow from those actions are controlled by principles.
Anyone who isn’t embarrassed by who they were last year probably isn’t learning enough.
It’s easy to focus on our faults.
Most of us are aware of those areas in our life where it’s difficult to perform at our best—where we lack the innate skill or natural ability to easily achieve results.
While it’s important that we invest out time to develop those areas that are holding us back, I believe that we are better off investing in our strengths.
