“If you’re not making mistakes, then you’re not doing anything.  I’m positive that a doer makes mistakes.” -John Wooden

“A strong, positive self-image is the best possible preparation for success.” -Joyce Brothers

“Don’t be discouraged by failure. It can be a positive experience. Failure is, in a sense, the highway to success, inasmuch as every discovery of what is false leads us to seek earnestly after what is true, and every fresh experience points out some form of error which we will afterwards carefully avoid.” -John Keats

“You can’t live a positive life with a negative mind.” -Bravelets

“If I had to choose one skill as being most important in achieving success in life, I would say it is the skill of developing successful habits….  It really comes down to grit.  You can form any positive habit you want, so long as you have realistic expectations, plan your days accordingly, and stay determined to make it happen.” -Mark Ford

“Yes, you need a positive attitude to be happy.  But you can be quite successful by most measures simply by applying my success formula:

  • Decide exactly what it is you want.
  • Make it a primary goal.
  • Establish a series of yearly, monthly, weekly, and daily objectives to achieve that goal.
  • Resist the urge to give up along the way.

My own experience proves that, by doing this, you can achieve almost anything you want in life—even if you don’t have much faith in your own abilities.” -Mark Ford

“As I said, people who are emotionally positive about their chances for success have a history of succeeding.  They’re doers, not dreamers.  So, forget about positive thinking.  Instead, start rewiring your brain by working toward the goal you want to achieve or practicing the skill you want to master.  At first, you won’t feel very good about what you’re doing because you won’t be very good at it.  But stick with it.  Remember, it takes about 1,000 hours to achieve competency in anything worthwhile.” -Mark Ford
