Along with success comes a reputation for wisdom.


 They can because they think they can.



Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude.
Thomas Jefferson

Keep steadily before you the fact that all true success depends at last upon yourself.
Theodore T. Hunger


We are all motivated by a keen desire for praise, and the better a man is, the more he is inspired to glory.


Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out.
Robert Collier


The thing always happens that you really believe in; and the belief in a thing makes it happen.

Trisha ~ I think this sort of goes along with your quotes.  I don't remember who said it but it goes something like this.....'if we don't learn from the past, then we are certain to repeat it.'  It makes me thing about next years business plan.....if you fail to plan, you plan to fail.

Much success to you in 2011.

These are nice reminders of things forgotten. I've heard several of these before, but have forgotten them and it's nice to be reminded.

'They can because they think they can.' This is similar to Henry Ford's quote "Whether you think you can or you can't, you're right." I think I can! Happy New Year, Trish!
