50 fortunes — perseverance

Most Recent | A-Z

Finding your fortunes…

Anything that you do,
any accomplishment that you make,
you have to work for.

–  Cameron Diaz

I didn't get there
by wishing for it or hoping for it,
but by working for it.

–  Estee Lauder

The roughest roads
often lead to the top.

–  Christina Aguilera

When it comes to your dreams,
no is not an answer.

–  Rachel Hollis

So go ahead. Fall down.
The world looks different
from the ground.

–  Oprah Winfrey

Your victory is right around the corner.
Don't give up.

–  Nicki Minaj

A person who never made a mistake
never tried anything new.

–  Albert Einstein

Believe and act as if
it were impossible to fail.

–  Charles Kettering

I haven't failed. I've just found
10,000 ways that won't work.

–  Thomas Edison

Set out to do something.
Work really hard. Achieve an
outcome that reflects what
you did to get there.

Do what you love.
The rest will fall into place.

Progress, not perfection.

Nobody ever got anywhere

Fear will always be a thing.
But don't let it get in your way.

Whatever you can do, you must do.

Give yourself a chance to see what
happens when you don't give up.

Do the thing.

You can't fail if you're willing to.

Love what you do so it will love you.

Hurry up and fail so you can win.

Sit around and wait for happiness to
find you. Just kidding. Get up and
fight for it for dear life.

My superpower is showing up
and working really hard.

Go after what you want or
be happy with what you get.

Stop trying to skip the struggle.
You don't get to start at the
part where you're winning.

Stay focused.

Because your comfort zone
isn't even comfortable.

Don't make it look easy.
The fact is it's really hard
and you're doing it anyway.

Dare BIG.
Fear small.

Do what people say you can't,
just because you can.

Don't be in a hurry in the short
term for things you want to last
for the long term.

Let the difference between where
you are and where you want to
be inspire you.

That point where you are about to give
up but decide not to and everything
starts falling into place.

The middle of the process is no
place to determine the end of it.

Do. Chill. Do again.

Make mistake. Repeat.
Make mistake. Repeat.
Make mistake. Do something different.

Make the invisible visible.

Sweat the small stuff.
The small stuff is the big stuff.

The only way to get there
is to decide to.

Just show up.

Make the big decisions and the little
decisions will make themselves.

Figure out where you're going.
Then go there.

Invest less in proving why
things won't work.

Roadblocks emerge to either stop
you or reroute you. It's up to you
whether to break through them
or yield their quiet instruction.

You're not courageous because you
lack fear. You're courageous because
you feel fear and keep going anyway.

When doing something doesn't work,
do something different instead.

Do it anyway.

Be more process oriented.
You're too focused on the goal.

No sudden moves.

If you're someone who imagines
but doesn't create, find someone
who creates but doesn't imagine.

Learn to delay gratification.
