If it’s not fun, you’re not doing it right.
– Bob Basso
Timing, perseverance, and ten years of trying will eventually make you look like an overnight success.
It’s hard to beat a person who never gives up.
I’m convinced that about half of what separates the successful entrepreneurs from the non-successful ones is pure perseverance.
Risk more than others think is safe. Dream more than others think is practical.
Always deliver more than expected.
Never give in-never, never, never, never, in nothing great or small, large or petty, never give in except to convictions of honor and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.
The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now
I’ve missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times I’ve been trusted to take the game’s winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life and that’s why I succeed.
Do. Or do not. There is no try.Show More
