Luck happens when oppurtunity encounters the prepared mind.
Expect the best, plan for the worst, and prepare to be surprised.
It's not what you are that holds you back, it's what you think you are not.
You must learn from your past mistakes, but not lean on your past successes.
Mistakes are painful when they happen, but years later a collection of mistakes is what is called experience.
To establish true self-esteem we must concentrate on our successes and forget about the failures and the negatives in our lives.
Don't dwell on what went wrong. Instead, focus on what to do next. Spend your energies on moving forward toward finding the answer.
Forget about the consequences of failure. Failure is only a temporary change in direction to set you straight for your next success.
Our limitations and success will be based, most often, on your own expectations for ourselves. What the mind dwells upon, the body acts upon.
If you believe you can, you probably can. If you believe you won't, you most assuredly won't. Belief is the ignition switch that gets you off the launching pad.
