On Success

When looking for water, do you dig ten holes one foot deep or one hole ten feet deep? Surely, one hole ten feet deep would be best, but the real question is what do you do when you’ve reached ten feet and there is no water. Do you keep digging or do you abandon for another hole? There is an answer: At the end of the page.

Don’t be afraid to fail loudly. You’re better off to have done than not and at least you’ve learned a lesson in humility.

When you have failed a thousand times, you now know a thousand things you should avoid doing.

Stop thinking it’s the world’s fault. Start thinking what you can do to better the world.

Accidents don’t happen. Normal people doing stupid things make accidents happen.

You don’t win by defense; you win by attack. You don’t succeed by waiting; you succeed by taking action.

The better you are, the bigger risks you can take. And, without risks, you cannot succeed.

It’s the people who take the biggest risks who earn the biggest rewards. But, you have to know when to pull back.

You think winning the lottery would be the greatest thing in the world, but if you ask the winners, most of them will tell you that it was the worst thing that ever happened to them.

I know I will never go hungry for I own a skill.

If you do not plant, then you cannot sow. If you are not doing, nothing’s going to happen and complaining about it is like waiting for food to fall from the sky with your mouth wide open.

If you want something done, give it to the person who is busy.

There are three types of knowledge as far as I can tell: One, that will help you improve your career; Two, knowledge that you can apply to better your life; Three, the knowledge you use during cocktail hour or in chat rooms. Knowledge is useless unless you can apply it.

Whatever you do, do it the best, and then money will follow! But, you cannot do best what you do not love, so it is love which one must seek, not money.

“More” doesn’t necessarily mean, “better”!

You must enjoy the journey, not the destination!

Always stay hungry, but don’t work harder, work smarter!

Do not face the enemy when your blade is not sharp!

Your decisions are always good, if you make the best out of whatever happens.

Two important things in life: look straight and back straight!

Always one-step forward, never a step backward.

There’s no accidents, only stupid decisions.

Because you like something doesn’t mean it’s good for you. You need discipline for doing things you don’t like, but it’s right. Like medicine, it doesn’t taste good but it’s good for you

When you commit in attack, you cannot fail. You don’t stop until you succeed. That’s commitment. Only failure is in quitting.

Commitment is success.

Pick your words carefully, and whatever you say, mean it.

If you can’t first see it in your mind, then it can never be achieved.

Never compromise. Compromise has the connotation that you’re leaving something good for something worse.

There’s nothing of value you can gain without sacrifice.

It is useless to blame someone else for your problems. Surely the person you are blaming is not coming to fix your problems. Even if you think it’s not your fault, the only person you can control is yourself.

Nothing is impossible. It’s just a matter of how much know how you possess and how much you’re willing to give up.

A blade must constantly be sharpened, as a blade cannot sharpen itself and a dull blade is useless. Everything must constantly be practiced or we are sure to lose it.

When you take action, make it quick and decisive.

Your shortcuts will kill you.

Answer: Enjoy the digging!
