    it becomes wisdom. Deny accountability and responsibility and the keys of your life are given to someone else."

    @Andy Black

    I can't quote it by heart but love the quote, nonetheless. This one is for all the armchair quarterbacks. I would think of this specific quote when I'd overhear someone talking shit about someone who lost a race or whose business had failed. At least that guy had the balls to get in the race. That woman had the courage to start that business.

    I will always respect those who are willing to stand in the ring and keep their hands up for a few rounds.

    We must all suffer from one of two pains: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret. The difference is discipline weighs ounces while regret weighs tons.

    "I don't have time" is the grown-up version of "The dog ate my homework"

    Don't know where I found this one, but I quote it quite often.

    Yes, a mentor of mine did a whole session about this to a group of business people.

    Time management is a myth. We all have the same 24 hours a day that Richard Branson has. It's all about prioritisation.

    Saying you don't have time is the same as saying it wasn't important enough to do, and I did something more important instead.

    That might keep the peace when you're telling your wife why you didn't put up a shelf, but don't use it to kid yourself.

    Seriously, if you always put limits on what you can do, physical or anything else, it’ll spread over into the rest of your life. It’ll spread into your work, into your morality, into your entire being. There are no limits. There are plateaus, but you must not stay there, you must go beyond them. If it kills you, it kills you. A man must constantly exceed his level.”Bruce Lee

    “Modern man is conditioned to expect instant gratification, but any success or triumph realized quickly, with only marginal effort, is necessarily shallow. Meaningful achievement takes time, hard work, persistence, patience, proper intent and self-awareness. The path to success is punctuated by failure, consolidation, and renewed effort.”Mark Twight

    Makes a lot more sense when you understand how far you've come to get to where you are today.

    When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.”
