Whether you realize it or not, we all need encouragement and motivation. Words of encouragement are actually powerful and makes us feel good, alive, refreshed, reach higher, focused on our goals and enlighten us to think in a positive way and view things from a differnt perspective/angle. I’ve got quite a few which I think are good, worth remembering and I’m sure this list of quotes will keep on growing as time goes by.
The greatest dangerfor most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that it is too low and we reach it.
The trouble of not aiming high is that we can’t possibly achieve what we want to achieve. Aim for the sky and work hard. Even if you fail, you will be 10,000 feet above the ground instead of staying 20 meters on the second floor.
Managing your career is like investing–the degree of difficulty does not count. So you can save yourself money and pain by getting on the right train.
– Warren Buffet
From Warren Buffet, the world’s most successful investor of all time, and the richest man in the world according to Forbe’s 2008 annual billionaire list. Probably my favorite quote from this great man, he keeps on reminding us why being an average player in a highly profitable industry is STILL highly profitable.
Bad is not the biggest enemy of good. Perfection is.
Sometimes aiming for perfection just isn’t going to work. Nothing s perfect. Good enough is good enough.
