    "Find what poor people read, and don't read it!"

    From Jim Rohn. Not the most impactful but it's funny and it causes me to evaluate little things that I consume daily (entertainment, media, etc)

    Edit: I have another one I just remembered.

    "When you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe, that's when you'll be successful!" - Eric Thomas

    This quote made absolutely no sense to me years ago. Why do you need to want it that bad? Isn't hard work and intelligence good enough?

    I guarantee 9/10 people in my University don't truly understand this quote either. At least not yet.

    The greatest danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that it is too low and we reach it.

    OK, as usual with OW, he's kind of trying to be funny, but a lot of truth in what he's saying.

    If you really want something you will find a way. If you don't you will find an excuse.

    You don't have to be great to start but you have to start to be great.

    Sure we cut cut the marketing budget in half, as long as you tell me which half.

    This was said at a Mercedes Shareholders meeting when someone said the marketing budget was too high.

    I totally agree with his response because it’s so difficult to measure the exact effect of marketing.

    One of my favorite one liners:

    Getting rich is not a goal. $10 million within 5 years is a goal.

    Love it!!!

    Love this. To me it speaks of accountability. I am ultimately responsible for everything in my past and everything in my future.

    There are some great quotes here guys. Thanks a bunch and keep them coming.

    One of my oldest memories of a quote that has stuck with me for life was from my father who died in my arms at the young age of 57.

    Not long before that tragic day he said to me:

    "Son, I gave the best years of my life to some bugger else, don't make the same mistake."

    That should be sufficient but if you need any more incentive to plough your own furrow remember that if you are not working on making your dreams come true you are working on making someone else's.

    Ha! I've got to show that to my better half - She's always sort of mocking me for being so "damn optimistic all the time" as she says. Your quote pretty much sums up why, I think.. It resonated, anyway. :)
