“The difference between failure and success is the amount of work you put in. Most people seem to expect that the longer they do, the better they will be. The issue is that most people never find out how to do enough to make it effective, and if they try, they’ll fail.”
“What’s the worst that can happen? You make a mistake, and you pay the price, but it is nothing compared to what could happen if you succeed. Maybe you have noticed that few men and women who seem to live the life that they’re supposed to live always appear to fail in one way or another?
