"I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work." — Thomas Edison

If only we all looked at life the way Thomas Edison does in this quote. Often when we don’t succeed or achieve the effect we were aiming for, we assume we have failed. Failure is only achieved when we stop trying.

"You can't please everyone, and you can't make everyone like you." — Katie Couric

How true this statement is! Don’t go through life trying to please everyone, because you will never be able to. Likewise, trying to get everyone to like you is an impossible feat. Be yourself and do the things you love without apologizing to anyone.

"Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day-in and day-out." — Robert Collier

The seemingly small efforts we make each day add up, and have a greater effect on our lives than we often realize. Do not waste your time worrying about doing something grand and extraordinary, just do the little things that matter and success will follow.

"You miss 100 percent of the shots you don't take." — Wayne Gretzky

Missed opportunities will always be just that if we fail to act, let fear stop us, or choose to not try. Don’t let life’s opportunities pass you by because you are afraid to take a chance. Taking a chance, even when the outcome is uncertain, is much better than not taking that chance for whatever reason.
