Quote Of The Day:

(1) You are in the driver seat. So drive.
(2) You need to stop distracting yourself and start inspiring yourself.
(3) Big thinking actually does work.
As said in The Pursuit of Happiness: “You got a dream… You gotta protect it. People can’t do somethin’ themselves, they wanna tell you you can’t do it. If you want somethin’, go get it. Period.”
(4) Motion creates motion…and it creates ideas.
When you start moving towards a goal it drives you forward even further. This is why just the act of “doing something” can help people get into a better mindset. Motion also gets the mind moving and creates new ideas. Moral of the story: Get out and do something, even if it is small. Then let the snowball effect take place!
(5) You better start failing ASAP!
The most important question to ask yourself is: How much can you learn from failure? Start “failing” today and change the way you perceive this word. See it as an opportunity for growth and learning. See it as a way to test new ideas and improve understanding. See it is as a necessary step to success and not the “end” of anything.
(6) Live for others not yourself.

The 13th publisher took a look and gave her a chance. Joanne (J.K.) Rowling would have her first book published, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone…
