There is a difference between being successful, and feeling successful. Trust me, you want the latter. Success should be accompanied by a feeling of humility that only the best of the best are capable of. Harry Truman said, "It's amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit," and that is the selfless attitude that true success stories are built from.
“You know the world is going crazy when the best rapper is a white guy, the best golfer is a black guy, the tallest guy in the NBA is Chinese, the Swiss hold the America's Cup, France is accusing the U.S. of arrogance, Germany doesn't want to go to war, and the three most powerful men in America are named "Bush", "Dick", and "Colin." Need I say more?”
“Have you ever seen the dawn? Not a dawn groggy with lack of sleep or hectic with mindless obligations and you about to rush off on an early adventure or business, but full of deep silence and absolute clarity of perception? A dawning which you truly observe, degree by degree. It is the most amazing moment of birth. And more than anything it can spur you to action. Have a burning day.“
Everyone knows these days: you wake up in the morning and you’re not motivated to do anything. You drag yourself out of bed, feeling exhausted, but it does not get any better. Instead of being allowed to do absolutely nothing, you have to address so many issues, duties and responsibilities that it’s impossible to know where to start. Nobody likes to admit it, but we all are struggling to get motivated from time to time. Even the top achievers among us know how difficult it is to keep one’s motivation at a constant high level.
“I can’t do this.” Often times we are confronted with self-doubt when we face a difficult or challenging task. But more often than not it turns out that we are capable of addressing the issue, even though we previously thought we couldn’t. For this reason, it is important to not allow our own insecurities from preventing the pursuit of our dreams. Reframe situations like this by telling yourself that “I can make it, practice makes perfect.” How else should we grow and advance if we are not willing to face challenging situations and tasks?
You might even want to send her a hand written card telling her all of the reasons why you love her, and include some words of wisdom about the power of a great friendship. Plan out a besties-only day of going to your favorite restaurants, watching your fave movie, and serving up some BFF cocktails (if you're 21 and up). There's truly no one else in the world who makes you laugh so hard you could cry, and understands you even when you're making absolutely no sense, so you want to show her how much you care.
Friends are the best gifts a life can present us with. And it doesn’t matter if you can single out just a few close friends or you’re lucky enough and sociable enough to be a good friend for a dozen of people, what is more important is that you have friends. Don’t keep it a secret the way you feel towards your friends – tell them how much you love them with these amazing quotes with deep meaning.
People keep repeating the things they cannot do like a mantra: “It’s impossible to do this, it’s not possible to do that…” This goes on until there is finally one person willing to challenge the status quo. It’s the person that is equipped with the mental strength to see things through, no matter how many people tell them that what they are doing is not possible. These are the people we look up to, because they fundamentally changed the way we are living.
I would say laughter is the best medicine. But it’s more than that. It’s an entire regime of antibiotics and steroids. Laughter brings the swelling down on our national psyche, and then applies an antibiotic cream. You gotta keep it away from your eyes… Obviously, it’s a challenge to make light of the darkness but, um, it’s better than crying about it. Stephen Colbert
13. If you chase anything in life chase the things that get you excited about living. Chase the things that give you hope, happiness and a glimpse of a better life. Chase the things that make you want to be a better person. Chase the things that inspire you to think, create and live joyfully. Chase the things that reinforce in your soul that you can make a difference. Chase the things that make you want to transform your heart from selfish to selfless. When you chase that kind of storm you are chasing rainbows. ― Shannon L. Alder
63. The fishing is best where the fewest go, and the collective insecurity of the world makes it easy for people to hit home runs while everyone else is aiming for base hits. There is just less competition for bigger goals. If you are insecure, guess what? The rest of the world is, too. Do not overestimate the competition and underestimate yourself. You are better than you think.

“How sweet the morning air is! See how that one little cloud floats like a pink feather from some gigantic flamingo. Now the red rim of the sun pushes itself over the London cloud-bank. It shines on a good many folk, but on none, I dare bet, who are on a stranger errand than you and I. How small we feel with our petty ambitions and strivings in the presence of the great elemental forces of Nature!”

A couple of seconds later there will be nothing else on your mind, except the wish to breathe.

Do you want to surf the Internet? Do you need any rest? NO! Heck no, all you want to do is to breathe. Nothing else.

Actually, I love Yip Man’s quote (is it just me or does “Yip Man” sound like a name for a bizarre kind of superhero?). We tend to eat and drink, taking the sustenance for granted. Half the time, we are not even fully aware that we are eating or drinking, absorbed in the TV instead. Yip Man is saying “This is important. Pay attention. The water does not have to be here yet here it is.” He is making us aware in order to fully experience drinking.
By far the most important road to success is actually staying ON the road. Do not allow adversity to distract you from your passion, instead use it as fuel to trudge ahead. However sometimes adversity does not seem to allow an opportunity to work in your favor. As Doc Rivers famously said, "You have to be willing to get your heart broken to be a champion". Sometimes the name of the game is thick skin and perseverance.
