Quotes & Tips from The School of Greatness:

Vision

Your job is to create a vision that makes you want to jump out of bed in the morning. If it doesn’t, go back to bed until you have a bigger dream.

You become what you envision yourself being.

You need desire to be fully alive and you need vision to fulfill your desires.

Vision without action is a dream. Action without vision is a nightmare.

A powerful vision emerges when we couple our dreams with a set of clear goals.

Failure

In reality, failure is simply feedback. It’s not that you are bad or not good enough or incapable. Failure (or feedback) gives you the opportunity to look at what’s not working and figure out how to make it work.

Everyone fails. Highly successful people fail many more times than the rest of the world and with much higher stakes at hand.

Keep going

We only have one rule. You can’t stop. You can go as slow as you need to go, but you cannot stop. You can never drop out.

Your Network

John Wooden quote: “You show me your friends, and I’ll show you your future.

Greatness is a Habit

Greatness is the result of visionaries who persevere, focus, believe, and prepare. It is a habit, not a birthright.

Strength of Desires

Successful and unsuccessful people do not vary greatly in their abilities. They vary in their desires to reach their potential.

Habits Manifesto

What we do every day matters more than what we do once in a while. Make it easy to do right and hard to go wrong. Focus on actions, not outcomes. By giving something up, we may gain. Things often get harder before they get easier. When we give more to ourselves, we can ask more from ourselves. We’re not very different from other people, but those differences are very important. It’s easier to change our surroundings than ourselves. We can’t make people change, but when we change, others may change. We should make sure the things we do to feel better don’t make us feel worse. We manage what we monitor. Once we’re ready to begin, begin now.

Self-ownership

No one is going to hand me success. I must go out and get it myself. That’s why I’m here. To dominate. To conquer. Both the world and myself.
