The best way to not feel hopeless is to get up and do something. Don't wait for good things to happen to you. If you go out and make some good things happen, you will fill the world with hope; you will fill yourself with hope.
It's impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all—in which case, you fail by default.
Whether you think you can or you think you can't, you're right.
Let excellence be your brand… When you are excellent, you become unforgettable. Doing the right thing, even when nobody knows you're doing the right thing, will always bring the right thing to you.
Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice.
The biggest risk is not taking any risk. In a world that's changing really quickly, the only strategy guaranteed to fail is not taking risks.
In the long run, we shape our lives, and we shape ourselves. The process never ends until we die. And the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility.
