Goals must never be from your ego, but problems that cry for a solution.
Goals allow you to control the direction of change in your favor.
When I started my last business, I didn't receive a paycheck for 13 months. The average person can't handle that pressure.
When you love you wish to do things for. You wish to sacrifice for. You wish to serve.
When something is important enough, you do it even if the odds are not in your favor.
When it is obvious that the goals cannot be reached, don’t adjust the goals, adjust the action steps.
When Paul Allen and I started Microsoft over 30 years ago, we had big dreams about software. We had dreams about the impact it could have.
Don’t ever let somebody tell you…you can’t do something. You got a dream... you gotta protect it. People can’t do something themselves... they wanna tell you you can’t do it. If you want something go get it.
It's not where you start - it's where you finish that counts.
When obstacles arise, you change your direction to reach your goal; you do not change your decision to get there.
What you get by reaching your destination is not nearly as important as what you will become by reaching your destination.
Much about success is just the result of simply the ability to follow up, follow through, and finish what we started.
We often miss opportunity because it's dressed in overalls and looks like work.
A man will fight harder for his interests than for his rights.
Few cross the river of time and are able to reach non-being. Most of them run up and down only on this side of the river. But those who when they know the law follow the path of the law, they shall reach the other shore and go beyond the realm of death.
A goal is not always meant to be reached. It often serves simply as something to aim at.
Between true friends even water drunk together is sweet enough.
The greatest way to live with honor in this world is to be what we pretend to be.
Try not to become a man of success but rather try to become a man of value.
And in the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years.
