Stars can’t shine without darkness.  The darkest night will end and the sun will rise.  The sun goes down; the stars come out.  You are the sky.  Everything else is just the weather.  If you want the rainbow, you have to put up with the rain.  Without rain, nothing grows.  Learn to embrace the storms of your life.  The struggle you’re in today is developing the strength you need for tomorrow.  Oaks grow strong in contrary winds, diamonds are made under pressure.  Don't cry over the past; it's gone.  Don't stress over the future; it hasn't arrived.  Rivers never go reverse.  So try to live like a river.  No matter how tall the mountain is, it cannot block the sun.  Everyday is the opportunity for a better tomorrow.

Every rock that life has thrown at you is a stepping stone to your greatness.  Every pain gives a lesson, and every lesson changes a person.  Forget your past and focus on your future.  Your future is just a repeat of your past if you let yesterday take control of tomorrow.  Every successful person has a painful story.  Every painful story has a successful ending.  Accept the pain and get ready for success.  You can get excited about the future.  No matter how much you revisit the past, there's nothing new there to see.  The past is a place of learning, not a place of living.  The past won’t mind.  Live in the present and make it beautiful.  You are allowed to take your time, to grow in your own beautiful way.  Never be afraid to fall apart because it is an opportunity to rebuild yourself.  Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently.  Failures are a part of life.  If you don't fail, you'll never learn.  If you don't learn, you will never change.  You will never win if you never begin.  You have to do what is right for yourself; nobody else is walking in your shoes.  You are strong enough to handle your challenges, wise enough to find solutions to your problems, and capable enough to do whatever needs to be done.  If you really want something, you'll find a way.  If you don't, you'll find an excuse.  Try hard to get what you like or you will be forced to like what you get.  If you don't build your own dream, someone will hire you to build theirs

Mental toughness is essential to success.  Falling down is an accident; staying down is a choice.  Hard times create strong men; good times create weak men.  Strong men create good times; weak men create hard times.  The strongest ones bleed in silence, hurt in private; heal in silence, shine in public.  Great things never came from comfort zones; all progress takes place outside of the comfort zone.  Excuses will always be there for you; opportunity won't.  Push yourself, because no one else is going to do it for you.  If you don't design your own life plan, chances are you'll fall into someone else's plan.  But whatever you do, you have to keep moving forward.  Don't let the fear of losing be greater than the excitement of winning.  A butterfly with bullet holes in her wings that never regretted learning to fly.  Shape yourself before the world shapes you.  Better a character out of shape, than a shape without character.  Shape yourself or break yourself.  When the going gets tough, the tough get going.  Never give in.  No pressure, no diamonds.  To be or not to be.  Never apologize for having high standards.  Pride is holding your head up when everyone around you has theirs bowed.

They laugh at me because I’m different; I laugh at them because they’re all the same.  The butterfly does not look back at the caterpillar in shame, just as you should not look back at your past in shame.  We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.  Your past was part of your own transformation.  It is never too late to be what you might have been.  If you don't fight for what you want, then don't cry for what you lost.  Confidence is better than perfection, because perfection means doing the best.  Confidence means knowing how to handle the worst.  Weak people revenge, strong people forgive, and intelligent people ignore.  Attitude is the difference between ordeal and adventure.  Your attitude is like a price tag, it shows how valuable you are.  Your worth isn't a negotiation.  Value yourself for who you are.  When you learn how much you're worth, you'll stop giving people discounts.  Whoever is trying to bring you down is already below you.  You can't lift a thousand pounds all at once, yet you can easily lift one pound a thousand times.  Small, consistent, and repeated efforts will get you there.  Tough times never last, but tough people do.  Surprise yourself everyday with your own courage.  You're braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.  If you are not willing to risk the usual, you will have to settle for the ordinary.  As iron is eaten away by rust, so the envious are consumed by their own passion.

I realize that the future belongs to those who prepare for it.  I will develop and maintain a good positive attitude.  I will be strong.  I will think of success.  I will be enthusiastic and totally self-reliant.  I do not see failure as failure.  I will think positively.  I know the only person responsible for my success is me.  I have standards, I don't plan on lowering them for anybody, including myself.  I cannot do everything, but I can do something; I will not let what I cannot do interfere with what I can do.  I'm not going to fake it until I make it; I want to make it, so I don't have to fake it.  I will never be perfect, but I can be better.  I am strong because I know my weakness.  I am beautiful because I am aware of my flaws.  I am fearless because I've learned to recognize illusion from reality.  I am smarter because I learn from my mistakes.  I am a lover because I have felt hate.  I am happier because I've know sadness.  I don’t wear the opinions of others anymore.  I learned to dress myself.  I am not lost; I am just different, looking for a journey of my own.  I am not special.  I'm just a limited edition.

The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.  Today's accomplishments were yesterday’s impossibilities.  Doubt kills more dreams than failure ever will.  The most valuable thing you can make is a mistake.  You can't learn anything from being perfect.  Work hard in silence; let your success be your noise.  Let perseverance be your engine, and hope your fuel.  Being challenged in life is inevitable; being defeated is optional.  You'll never be brave if you don't get hurt.  You'll never learn if you don't make mistakes.  You'll never be successful if you don't encounter failure.  Any lesson you refuse to learn will repeat until you do.  Learn from the past.  Prepare for the future.  Live for today.

Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value.  Difficult roads build skillful drivers.  Difficult waves build amazing sailors.  Difficult situations build strong people.  Surprise yourself everyday with your own courage.  Today is your opportunity to build the tomorrow you want.  To be successful, you have to have your heart in your business and your business in your heart.
