Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, don’t sit at home and think about it. Go out and get busy.

Dale Carnegie


Nobody is born a warrior, in exactly the same way that nobody is born an average man. We make ourselves into one or the other.

Carlos Castaneda


You must be the person you have never had the courage to be. Gradually, you will discover that you are that person, but until you can see this clearly, you must pretend and invent.

Paulo Coelho


There are times to stay put and what you want will come to you, and there are times to go out into the world and find such a thing for yourself.

Lemony Snicket


Never mind searching for who you are. Search for the person you aspire to be.

Robert Brault


The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.

Martin Luther King Jr.


Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all.

Dale Carnegie


When the going gets tough, the tough get going.

Joseph Kennedy


If something is important to you, you’ll find a way. If not, an excuse.

Unknown


Keep on going and chances are you will stumble on something, perhaps when you are least expecting it. I have never heard of anyone stumbling on something sitting down.

Charles F. Kettering


Nothing is impossible. ‘Impossible’ just takes a few more phone calls.

Michael J. Fox


I am not judged by the number of times I fail, but by the number of times I succeed: and the number of times I succeed is in direct proportion to the number of times I fail and keep trying.

Tom Hopkins


The road to success is dotted with many tempting parking places.

Unknown


When nobody else celebrates you, learn to celebrate yourself. When nobody else compliments you, then compliment yourself. It’s not up to other people to keep you encouraged. It’s up to you. Encouragement should come from the inside.

Joel Osteen


It’s better to be in the arena, getting stomped by the bull, than to be up in the stands or out in the parking lot.

Steven Pressfield


I am not a product of circumstances. I am a product of my decisions.

Stephen Covey


May your choices reflect your hopes, not your fears.

Nelson Mandela


Success is a little like wrestling a gorilla. You don’t quit when you’re tired. You quit when the gorilla is tired.

Robert Strauss


There is no elevator to success. You have to take the stairs.

Unknown


How often do you think we write our own ending before the story is even finished? How often do we give up on ourselves when our lives are just starting? Things get hard and we immediately back away and assume that means we’re going in the wrong direction, doing the wrong thing. If anything, when the waters get thick, that’s our sign to keep going.

Rachel Van Dyken


Sometimes it takes a good fall to know where you really stand.

Hayley Williams


You have to act as if it were possible to radically transform the world. And you have to do it all the time.

Angela Davis


If you’re going through hell, keep going.

Winston Churchill


Don’t wish it was easier, wish you were better. Don’t wish for less problems, wish for more skills. Don’t wish for less challenges, wish for more wisdom. The major value in life is not what you get. The major value in life is what you become. Success is not to be pursued; it is to be attracted by the person you become.

Jim Rohn


Big shots are only little shots who kept shooting.

Christopher Morley


Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.

Thomas Edison


You don’t drown by falling in the water, you drown by staying there.

Robert Jordan


If I’ve learned one lesson from all that’s happened to me, it’s that there’s no such thing as the biggest mistake of your existence. There’s no such thing as ruining your life. Life’s a pretty resilient thing, it turns out.

Sophie Kinsella


You may have to fight a battle more than once to win it.

Margaret Thatcher


Once you realize there is a life after mistakes, you gain a self-confidence that never goes away.

Bob Schieffer


The best way out is always through.

Robert Frost


Don’t be discouraged. It is often the last key in the bunch that opens the lock.

Unknown


I am learning every day to allow the space between where I am and where I want to be to inspire me and not terrify me.

Tracee Ellis Ross


What do you want: The pain of staying where you are, or the pain of growth?

Judith Hanson Lasater


The race is not always to the swift, but to those who keep on running.

Unknown TC mark

This is me letting you go

If there’s one thing we all need to stop doing, it’s waiting around for someone else to show up and change our lives. Just be the person you’ve been waiting for.

At the end of the day, you have two choices in love – one is to accept someone just as they are and the other is to walk away.

We owe it to ourselves to live the greatest life that we’re capable of living, even if that means that we have to be alone for a very long time.

“Everyone could use a book like this at some point in their life.” – Heather

Let go now
