“If you cannot do great things, do small things in a great way.” – Napoleon Hill


Not everyone has the capabilities to achieve incredible feats, but everybody has the ability to do small things in an incredible way. Work to make everything you do great no matter what it is. These small acts of greatness can turn into something even bigger.

“Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending” ~Carl Bard

“Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.” – Carl Bard

We cannot change the past, we can only learn from it. However, anyone can change the ending of their life. If you do not like the past that you are heading down, then do something to change it and set yourself on the right path.

“Always make a total effort, even when the odds are against you.” ~Arnold Palmer

Giving it your all is hard enough, but when the odds are stacked against you it becomes very tempting to just pack it up and go home. But if the odds aren’t in your favor you have to give it as much effort as you possibly can if you hope to come out on top.

always make a total effort, even when the odds are against you

Only you know if you’re giving your full effort, so this becomes a battle with yourself more than anything else. Learning to get the most out of yourself is a trick that the most successful achievers have mastered.

“Don’t count the days, make the days count.” ~Muhammad Ali

It can be dangerous to start counting down your days, because you want to make each one count. But many times there will be an event coming up that makes you start counting down how many days until it arrives.


But each day between now and then is important, and you don’t want to breeze over any part of your life just to get to the next, seemingly better part. Putting the most of yourself into each day will make it so you never have any regrets about how you spent your time here, and you’ll know that you really did make it count each day.

Steve McCurry vison of life as remarkable travel

Each of my photos is not just an episode from life, it’s  quintessence,  a full story, that what Steve McCurry said. By taking a glance at his works you are teleporting in that story….


McCurry has brought his works to such perfect level of perception when, you are looking at them, anyone realise the participation and partaking in the concept of universal development. 


His career was launched when, disguised in native garb, he crossed the Pakistan border into rebel-controlled Afghanistan just before the Russian invasion. When he emerged, he had rolls of film sewn into his clothes and images that would be published around the world as among the first to show the conflict there.


His coverage won the Robert Capa Gold Medal for Best Photographic Reporting from Abroad, an award dedicated to photographers exhibiting exceptional courage and enterprise.

SRI LANKA. South Coast. Weligama. 1995. Fishermen.

Some of his pictures and especially a portrait of the Afghan girl are entered in the category of the well-known world photo-icons. 


Though, without looking, at several photos that have passed one million and a world fame, McCurry, still, doesn’t consider himself well-known. As the photographer has told in one of his interviews: “Usually public recognise the photo, but not her author”. Discover more by visiting  Steve McCurry exhibition in La Venaria Reale in Turin. Enjoy 

BURMA. Myanmar. 2011

Каждая из моих фотографий не является просто эпизодом от жизни, это – квинтэссенция, полная  ее история,  то что сказал Стив МакКарри. Взглянув на его работы Вы телепортируетесь в эту историю…


МакКарри довел свои работы до такого совершенного уровня восприятия, когда, глядя на них, любой осознает свою сопричастность и участие в концепции общемирового развития.


Его карьера была начата, когда замаскированный в одежду уроженца, он пересек Пакистанскую границу в контролируемый мятежниками Афганистан непосредственно перед российским вторжением. Когда он появился, ему вшили катушки с пленкой в одежду и изображения, которые будут опубликованы во всем мире как первые, показывающие  тот конфликт.

INDIA. Jammu and Kashmir. Srinagar. 1999. Flower Seller at Dal Lake.

Его репортаж выиграл Золотую медаль Роберта Кэпы для Лучшей Фотографической Отчетности из-за границы, премия, посвященная фотографам, показывающим исключительную храбрость и предприятие.

CHINA. Zhengzou. 2004. Shaolin monks training.

Некоторые его картины и особенно портрет афганской девочки введены в категорию известных мировых фотосимволов.


 Хотя, не смотря, на количество фотографий переваливших за миллион и мировую известность, МакКарри, по прежнему, не считает себя знаменитым. Как сам фотограф сказал в одном из интервью: “Обычно люди узнают фотографию, а не ее автора”..

“It wasn’t raining when Noah built the ark.” ~Howard Ruff

Being prepared is one thing, but this quote is asking you to take it to the next level. Noah was tipped off that the flood was coming, but life doesn’t always work out that way. You almost have to assume that something bad is going to happen at some point in your future, so why wait until it occurs to try to deal with it then?


Prepare yourself for a disaster and if it doesn’t come even better. But if it does you’ll be able to handle it better and get through it more easily. It’s not a form of negative thinking to prepare for hardship, in fact it is a way of preserving your positive thinking even through rough times.

“Very often a change of self is needed more than a change of scene.” ~Arthur Christopher Benson

You take yourself with you wherever you go, so running off to a new place is no way to escape. You’ll just end up replicating the same patterns that got you where you are in the first place. But if you work on changing habits that don’t serve you, and replacing them with ones that do you’ll notice that you no longer feel like you have to escape from the situation, and can feel more comfortable in your surroundings. You can still use a change of scenery to help uproot you from your rut and make lasting changes.

“There is only one success: to be able to spend your life in your own way.” ~Christopher Morley

It’s your life, your one and only life, and it would be a shame to spend it in a way that doesn’t suit you. But many of us wish that things were different. Either we’re unsatisfied with our jobs, or our relationships, or just the way things are going. It’s vital to your overall success to make changes as you see fit so that you can have your life be the way you really want it to be. It’s the foundation to all other success, and you can’t really have a different success without first tending to this matter.

“A year from now you may wish you had started today.” ~Karen Lamb

What things did you start a year ago that you’re glad you started back then? If nothing comes to mind it’s high time you start something today that you can be proud of a year from now. If you’ve already got something in the works, project things out a year from now and imagine how excited you’ll be that you already got it going. A year is a long enough time to see some real progress in your efforts, and you are often enjoying the fruits of your labors from a year ago or more. Start something today if you don’t have any irons in the fires.
