1: 'People often say motivation doesn't last. Neither does bathing - that's why we recommend it daily.'
It's important that you stay motivated on a daily basis. Anytime you're beginning to feel down and out, you should seek out whatever motivates and inspires you. Every day, try to stay motivated, and you'll be more apt to seek out your own success.
2: 'A goal properly set is halfway reached.'
Whatever you're trying to do, you need to remember to keep your eye on the prize. Remember the big picture, and outline the steps and processes it's going to take for you to achieve your goal. Get it down on paper, so it's not just something that's living inside of your mind.
3: 'If you can dream it, you can achieve it.'
Chances are, you've heard it all throughout your life, but you had no idea where it came from. It's been uttered time and time again, and still remains true to this day. Always remember that you can do anything you set your mind to. If you truly want something, and go after it with everything you've got, you'll achieve it.
4: 'Remember that failure is an event, not a person.'
Failure is something that's going to happen as we pursue our goals, and that's just a hard fact of life. instead of blaming your goals on someone else, yourself, or a certain set of circumstances, just remember that failure is temporary. How you react to failure will determine the outcome of your life, so pick yourself up, learn from your failures, and move forward.
5: 'You will get all you want in life, if you help enough other people get what they want.'
If you want something, you have to give something first. That's just simply how the universe works. Always be there for others and help them get what they want, and they'll be there for you when you need them.
6: 'Expect the best. Prepare for the worst. Capitalize on what comes.'
Always expect the best outcome, so that way you stay motivated. However, be prepared if things don't go the way you planned. If you receive the best, you'll get exactly what you wanted. If you receive the worst, look at it as a lesson to learn from, and move on.
'The foundation stones for a balanced success are honesty, character, integrity, faith, love and loyalty.'
