It's not the load that breaks you down - it's the way you carry it.

Life is ten percent what happens to you and ninety percent how you respond to it.

Ability is what you're capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it.

Nothing will work unless you do.

Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection we can catch excellence.

Winners never quit and quitters never win.

 image quote by John Wooden

Don't let yesterday take up too much of today.

Don't mistake activity for achievement.

When all is said and done, more is said than done.

Winning means you're willing to go longer, work harder, and give more than anyone else.

Don't tell your problems to people: eighty percent don't care; and the other twenty percent are glad you have them.

If you're not making mistakes, then you're not doing anything.

I'm positive that a doer makes mistakes.

Once you learn to quit, it becomes a habit.

First become a winner in life. Then it's easier to become a winner on the field.

Things turn out best for people who make the best of the way things turn out.

The secret to success is good leadership, and good leadership is all about making the lives of your team members or workers better.

Listen if you want to be heard.

A champion needs a motivation above and beyond winning.

Consider the rights of others before your own feelings, and the feelings of others before your own rights.

It's not whether you get knocked down, it's whether you get up.

Don't measure yourself by what you have accomplished, but by what you should have accomplished with your ability.

Failure to prepare is preparing to fail.

Ability may get you to the top, but it takes character to keep you there.

 image quote by John Wooden

When opportunity comes, it is too late to prepare.

Sports do not build character. They reveal it.

Winning isn't everything, but wanting to win is.

The achievements of an organization are the results of the combined effort of each individual.

Some of us will do our jobs well and some will not, but we will all be judged by only one thing -- the result.

You prove your worth with your actions, not with your mouth.

Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.

Success comes from knowing that you did your best to become the best that you are capable of becoming.
