Some suggestions for you :

If you are influenced by the opinions of others, you will have no desire of your own.

Some individuals appear to be allergic to honest work, but opportunity is equally allergic to them.

It has always been my belief that a man should do his best, regardless of how much he receives for his services, or the number of people he may be serving or the class of people served.

Failure so often hates the very sight of success. Speaking with successful men, I have noticed they speak in complimentary terms of other men who are succeeding. Their attitude is not one of envy, but of willingness to learn from others.

Those who reach decisions promptly and definitely, know what they want, and generally get it.

If you are not learning while you're earning, you are cheating yourself out of the better portion of your compensation.

The starting point of all achievement is desire. Keep this constantly in mind. Weak desires bring weak results, just as a small fire makes a small amount of heat.

Happiness is found in doing, not merely possessing.

The object of your definite chief aim should become your "hobby." You should ride this "hobby" continuously; you should sleep with it, eat with it, play with it, work with it, live with it and THINK with it.

Building alibis is a deeply rooted habit.

A genius is simply one who has taken full possession of his own mind and directed it toward objectives of his own choosing, without permitting outside influences to discourage or mislead him.

No one ever is defeated until defeat has been accepted as a reality.

The best recommendation is the one you give yourself by rendering superior service – with the right mental attitude.

As Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote, One single idea may have greater weight than the labor of all the men, animals and engines for a century.
