Every morning while you’re having coffee at your computer – look up a few quotes that resonate with you, and see how it puts you in the right frame of mind for the rest of the day.
Here’s my favorites:
Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds. – Albert Einstein
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit. –Aristotle
I’ve missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed. – Michael Jordan
I’d rather be a failure at something I enjoy than a success at something I hate – George Burns
You live longer once you realize that any time spent being unhappy is wasted. – Ruth E. Renki
It’s never too late to become what you might have been. – George Eliot

It’s true you only live once and life is short. But if you do it right then once is enough – Marc D.
All your anger at someone that hurt you, all your fear and pain, go to the gym and use it. Put it to good use to make you better rather than let it hurt you. – Marc D.
Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place, and I don’t care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t about how hard you hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward; how much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done! Now, if you know what you’re worth, then go out and get what you’re worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hits, and not pointing fingers saying you ain’t where you wanna be because of him, or her, or anybody. Cowards do that and that ain’t you. You’re better than that! – Rocky Balboa
Walk on the road. Walk ride side, safe. Walk left side, safe. Walk middle, sooner or later (squish noise) get squished just like grape. – Mr Miyagi
Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes… the ones who see things differently — they’re not fond of rules… You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things… they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do. – Steve Jobs
Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength. – Arnold Schwarzenegger
