He happier, work harder, and trust in the Lord.
I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.
I can accept failure, everyone fails at something. But I can’t accept not trying.
Always turn a negative situation into a positive situation.
Just play. Have fun. Enjoy the game.
I’ve always believed that if you put in the work, the results will come.
You have to expect things of yourself before you can do them.
Sometimes, things may not go your way, but the effort should be there every single night.
Winning isn’t always championships.
Always do what you are afraid to do. Ralph Waldo Emmerson
We are to learn about fear, not how to escape from it.
Only when we are no longer afraid do we begin to live.
There are very few monsters who warrant the fear we have of them.
I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. ‘Tis the business of little minds to shrink, but he whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves his conduct, will pursue his principles unto death.
Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.
Where there is love there is life.
Let us always meet each other with smile, for the smile is the beginning of love.
Love is a force more formidable than any other. It is invisible – it cannot be seen or measured, yet it is powerful enough to transform you in a moment, and offer you more joy than any material possession could.
Barbara de Angelis
The first duty of love is to listen.
Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.
Love is when the other person’s happiness is more important than your own.
H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
Love is always bestowed as a gift – freely, willingly and without expectation. We don’t love to be loved; we love to love.
Faith makes all things possible… love makes all things easy.
Dwight L. Moody
A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.
One is loved because one is loved. No reason is needed for loving.
Love does not dominate; it cultivates.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Love is the greatest refreshment in life.
The first recipe for happiness is: avoid too lengthy meditation on the past.
Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.
Most folks are as happy as they make up their minds to be.
I am determined to be cheerful and happy in whatever situation I may find myself. For I have learned that the greater part of our [happiness] is determined not by our circumstance but by our disposition.
Some cause happiness wherever they go; others whenever they go.
If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.
The purpose of our lives is to be happy.
There is only one way to happiness and that is to cease worrying about things which are beyond the power of our will.
Happiness depends upon ourselves.
Everything has its wonders, even darkness and silence, and I learn, whatever state I may be in, therein to be content.
Joy is a net of love by which you can catch souls.
Happiness doesn’t depend on any external conditions, it is governed by our mental attitude.
If your happiness depends on what somebody else does, I guess you do have a problem.
To forget oneself is to be happy.
Robert Louis Stevenson
Happiness is an inside job.
William Arthur Ward
I am a kind of paranoid in reverse. I suspect people of plotting to make me happy.
J. D. Salinger
All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Hard work spotlights the character of people: some turn up their sleeves, some turn up their noses, and some don’t turn up at all.
There is always the danger that we may just do the work for the sake of the work. This is where the respect and the love and the devotion come in – that we do it to God, to Christ, and that’s why we try to do it as beautifully as possible.
It is the working man who is the happy man. It is the idle man who is the miserable man.
All things are difficult before they are easy.
The harder I work, the luckier I get.
We work to become, not to acquire.
And where I excel is ridiculous, sickening, work ethic. You know, while the other guy’s sleeping? I’m working.
The only way to enjoy anything in this life is to earn it first.
Every noble work is at first impossible.
The more I want to get something done, the less I call it work.
Plans are only good intentions unless they immediately degenerate into hard work.
Working hard and working smart sometimes can be two different things.
I’ve learned from experience that if you work harder at it, and apply more energy and time to it, and more consistency, you get a better result. It comes from the work.
Louis C. K.
You’re blessed if you have the strength to work.
Nothing is work unless you’d rather be doing something else.
Every man loves what he is good at.
Work is not man’s punishment. It is his reward and his strength and his pleasure.
Give yourself something to work toward – constantly.
Mary Kay Ash
Work is much more fun than fun.
The only thing that overcomes hard luck is hard work.
If you put all your strength and faith and vigor into a job and try to do the best you can, the money will come.
Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve. –Napoleon Hill
Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value. –Albert Einstein

Every strike brings me closer to the next home run. –Babe Ruth

” Therefore, be faithful; and behold, and lo, I am with you even unto the end. Even so. Amen.” DC 105:41
“And so, does the destination matter? Or is it the path we take? I declare that no accomplishment has substance nearly as great as the road used to achieve it. We are not creatures of destinations. It is the journey that shapes us. Our callused feet, our backs strong from carrying the weight of our travels, our eyes open with the fresh delight of experiences lived.” Brandon Sanderson
“In the end, all men die. How you lived will be far more important to the Almighty than what you accomplished.”

“Every thought, word, and deed has an [effect] on the human body; all these leave their marks, marks which can be read by Him who is Eternal as easily as the words in a book can be read” (Mormon Doctrine, 2nd ed. , 97).
“Self-acceptance comes from meeting life’s challenges vigorously. Don’t numb yourself to your trials and difficulties, nor build mental walls to exclude pain from your life. You will find peace not by trying to escape your problems, but by confronting them courageously. You will find peace not in denial, but in victory.” -Swami Sivananda (1887-1963);
