“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

“When applying for a job, only two things really matter: what you know (your skill set) and who you are (your integrity).” -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

“To develop any complex skill, you must be willing to make mistakes and endure failure.” -Mark Ford
