10 Quotes to Live By

Here are ten quotes that I consistently consider and live by — keeping happiness, fulfillment, and success within my reach:

  1. If you limit your choices only to what seems possible or reasonable, you disconnect yourself from what you really want, and all that is left is a compromise. ~ Robert Fritz
  2. Surround yourself with people of equal or greater ability, aptitude, and experience. Tap into new talent, and experience greater growth. Not only will you benefit, but those around you will also prosper. ~ Anonymous
  3. Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are. ~John Wooden
  4. Determine that the thing can and shall be done, and then we shall find the way. ~Abraham Lincoln
  5. If you don’t go after what you want, you’ll never have it. If you don’t ask, the answer is always no. If you don’t step forward, you’re always in the same place. ~Nora Roberts
  6. Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful. ~Herman Cain
  7. Always dream and shoot higher than you know you can do. Don’t bother just to be better than your contemporaries or predecessors. Try to be better than yourself. ~William Faulkner
  8. Go as far as you can see; when you get there, you’ll be able to see farther. ~ J.P. Morgan
  9. I will never put my name on a product that does not have the best that is in me. ~John Deere
  10. Be the change that you wish to see in the world. ~ Mahatma Gandhi

Do any of these quotes “speak” to you? What is one quote that you live by?
