Favorite Motivations/Inspirations

I do not often write many motivational statements or inspirational statements.  I actively seek them out, I say them to myself each day, and I think they are of great benefit.  But rarely to I write my own or re-post those that I have heard.  But for some reason, today I will.

1) Discipline is really quite simple.  Doing what I should do each day.  And not doing the things I shouldn’t do.  – Ethan Frey

2) The only easy day was yesterday – Navy SEALS

3) A good plan violently executed right now is better than a perfect plan executed next week – Gen. George Patton

4) Life’s journey is not to arrive a the grave safely in a well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting….”What a ride!”

5) Leadership is action, not position. – Donald H McGannon

6) If your habits don’t support your dreams, one of them has to change. – Anonymous

7) Love is Love’s reward – John Dryden

8) There is no remedy for Love but to Love more – Henry David Thoreau

Finally, my personal favorite, a small clip from Theodore Roosevelt’s Man in the Arena speech…….

9) It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.
