“The here and now is all we have, and if we play it right it’s all we’ll need.” ~ Ann Richards

The past is only in your head, and the future isn’t here yet, so there’s only one moment that truly matters, and that’s the present moment. No matter what time it is it’s always now, and you have to do the best you can with your now moment because you’ll never get anything else. She’s saying that if you do the best in the now it’s all you’ll ever need because everything else will work itself out. Breath in. Breath out. Go make magic!

The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson


How much are you willing to admit that what you’ve become up until now, and what you will be in the future are because of your decisions. You are deciding who you are with each passing minute, and you can become what you want as long as you decide to do so. Decide is based on the word for cut, and when you decide you are cutting off the other options you have available to you. This means you are accepting nothing less than what you have decided on.

“Your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other.” ~ Abraham Lincoln

It doesn’t matter if others believe you can succeed, or that you will succeed. No one can give you the resolution to succeed except yourself. It’s important to stoke those fires regularly, even daily so that you don’t get into the mentality that you can’t succeed or that failure is an option. Remember that we measure success personally, so that your idea of what it means to succeed is different than other people’s. Follow your own path to your own vision of success and stay the course.

“The only difference between success and failure is the ability to take action.” – Alexandre Graham Bell

It’s been said before and we will say it again, words without action are nearly meaningless. Sometimes success is only just a few hours away and requires just a little bit more hard work. Quitting, or not taking action in the first place, is a sure sign of failure. You can’t fail if you keep going.

“Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does.” ~ William James

Sometimes what we’re working on doesn’t seem like it matters much, especially when we’re doing things for other people when we’d much rather prefer to be doing things for ourselves. But if you put the sort of effort into everything you do as if it all matters, you’ll find that it does make a difference to your life and your mental state in the form of a better feeling. We all want to feel like we’re making a difference, and this quote is a reminder that we are making a difference, it just might not be as big as we’d like, but over time it can get bigger.

“Don’t limit yourself. Many people limit themselves to what they think they can do. You can go as far as your mind lets you. What you believe, remember, you can achieve.” – Mary Kay Ash

The journey can bring you happiness. The first thing is breaking those chains that you’ve put on yourself. Get rid of those restrictions and start reaching for the next level. Before you know it, you’ll be making progress on things you’ve wanted as long as you can remember.

“I am thankful to all who said no to me. It is because of them that I’m doing it myself.” ~ Albert Einstein

Sometimes no isn’t the answer you want to hear, but there’s a reason for it. Can you imagine being the person that said no to Einstein? Surely they regretted that decision later. The thing is that if you have someone telling you know it could be a sign that you should just do it yourself. Or it could mean that you need to ask someone else. Don’t put a lot of stock in any one person saying yes, just never give up if it’s truly important to you.

“We must use time as a tool, not as a couch.” – John F. Kennedy

Time should be used to work for you. Either you’re using time to get things done, or you are using time to wait for things to develop. Time is a great tool when used effectively, but as it is said here, it is not best to us it as a couch.

“If you’re not reaching back to help anyone then you’re not building a legacy.” – Germany Kent

If you are only focusing on yourself and your life then are not building any type of legacy. Becoming successful is tough but nobody does it without helping other people. A life is only worth the impact it has on other lives so strive to make the people around you better.
