    You only live once. So do what you feel passionate about.


    “Fail big! Today’s the beginning of the rest of your life.”

    “You only live once. So do what you feel passionate about. Take chances, professionally. Don’t be afraid to fail.”

    “There was an old I.Q. test. It was 9 dots. And you had to draw 5 lines with a pencil within these 9 dots, without lifting the pencil. The only way to do it was to go outside the box.”

    “So don’t be afraid to go outside the box. Don’t be afraid to think outside the box. Don’t be afraid to fail big…to dream big!”

    “But, remember, dreams without goals are just dreams. And they ultimately fuel disappointment.”


    “Have goals. And understand that, to achieve these goals, you must apply discipline and consistency.”


    “So have dreams, but have goals. Life goals. Monthly goals. Yearly goals. Daily goals. I try to give myself a goal every day.”

    “Have goals. And understand that, to achieve these goals, you must apply discipline and consistency…not just on Tuesday and then miss a few days.”

    “You have to work at it. Everyday! You have to plan. You’ve heard the saying, ‘We don’t plan to fail, we fail to plan.’”


    “Hard work, works! Working really hard is what successful people do.”


    “Hard work, works! Working really hard is what successful people do.”

    “Continue to strive. Continue to have goals. Continue to progress.”
