The really efficient laborer will be found not to crowd his day with work, but will saunter to his task surrounded by a wide halo of ease and leisure.

I learned this, at least, by my experiment: that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.

Work is an extension of personality. It is achievement. It is one of the ways in which a person measures his or her worth and humanity.

Life can be pulled by goals just as surely as it can be pushed by drives.

All who have accomplished great things have had a great aim, have fixed their gaze on a goal which was high, one which sometimes seemed impossible.

Our goals can only be reached through a vehicle of a plan, in which we must fervently believe, and upon which we must vigorously act. There is no other route to success.

When a really great dream shows up, grab it!

The mind is the limit. As long as the mind can envision the fact that you can do something, you can do it, as long as you really believe 100 percent.

I know you've heard it a thousand times before. But it's true - hard work pays off. If you want to be good, you have to practice, practice, practice. If you don't love something, then don't do it.

I watched a small man with thick calluses on both hands work 15 and 16 hours a day. I saw him once literally bleed from the bottoms of his feet, a man who came here uneducated, alone, unable to speak the language, who taught me all I needed to know about faith and hard work by the simple eloquence of his example.

The common man prays, 'I want a cookie right now!' And God responds, 'If you'd listen to what I say, tomorrow it will bring you 100 cookies.

Faith does not eliminate questions. But faith knows where to take them.

Believe in yourself, and the rest will fall into place. Have faith in your own abilities, work hard, and there is nothing you cannot accomplish.

Good things come to those who wait. But better things come to those who work for it.

Know this above all else, God hears and answers every one of your prayers.

Time spent in prayer is never wasted.

Fervent prayers produce phenomenal results.

We must always work, and a self-respecting artist must not fold his hands on the pretext that he is not in the mood. If we wait for the mood, without endeavouring to meet it half-way, we easily become indolent and apathetic. We must be patient, and believe that inspiration will come to those who can master their disinclination.

Success is most often achieved by those who don't know that failure is inevitable.

If you don't stand for something you will fall for anything.

Fear looks; faith jumps.

The only way to build a strong work ethic is getting your hands dirty.

If you work like a maniac for three hours you will have surpassed most people who work off and on for eight.

My success was due to good luck, hard work, and support and advice from friends and mentors. But most importantly, it depended on me to keep trying after I had failed.

To be successful you have to be selfish, or else you never achieve. And once you get to your highest level, then you have to be unselfish. Stay reachable. Stay in touch. Don't isolate.

Work while you have the light. You are responsible for the talent that has been entrusted to you.

Everybody wants to be famous, but nobody wants to do the work. I live by that. You grind hard so you can play hard. At the end of the day, you put all the work in, and eventually it'll pay off. It could be in a year, it could be in 30 years. Eventually, your hard work will pay off.

Why should the hen set all day? She can lay but one egg, and besides she will not have picked up materials for a new one. Those who work much do not work hard.

The humblest tasks get beautified if loving hands do them.

A man's work is nothing but this slow trek to rediscover, through the detours of art, those two or three great and simple images in whose presence his heart first opened.

The human race is a monotonous affair. Most people spend the greatest part of their time working in order to live, and what little freedom remains so fills them with fear that they seek out any and every means to be rid of it.

Never expose the sweat and labor behind your poise.

The sweat of hard work is not to be displayed. It is much more graceful to appear favored by the gods.

Work isn't meaningful just because you spend your life doing it.

If hard work was so wonderful, the rich would keep it all for themselves.

The artist is nothing without the gift, but the gift is nothing without work.

Hard work beats talent when talent fails to work hard.

The obstacle is the way.

I can accept failure. Everyone fails at something. But I can't accept not trying.

Work as hard as you can. Even though who you work with and what you work on are more important than how hard you work.

The better your feedback loop, the better your work. Businesses have the market. Novels have the readers. Science has experiments. It's when the feedback loop is a small group of bosses or peers that quality falls apart.

Hard work is an essential element in tracking down and perfecting a strategy or in executing it.

So often people are working hard at the wrong thing. Working on the right thing is probably more important than working hard.

In the name of God, stop a moment, cease your work, look around you.

Amateurs are busy and tense. Professionals are calm and focused.

There's no way around doing the work it takes to get you there.

Sometimes there's not a better way. Sometimes there's only the hard way.

A man is not idle because he is absorbed in thought. There is visible labor and there is invisible labor.

He does nothing with haste and drudgery, but as if he loved it. He makes the most of his labor, and takes infinite satisfaction in every part of it.

Work and you'll get what you need; work harder and you'll get what you want.

In dwelling, live close to the ground. In thinking, keep to the simple. In conflict, be fair and generous. In governing, don't try to control. In work, do what you enjoy. In family life, be completely present.

Never let your work drive you. Master it and keep it in complete control.

Don't make excuses for why you can't get it done. Focus on all the reasons why you must make it happen.

Blood, sweat and respect. The first two you give, the last one you get.

Perseverance is the hard work you do after you get tired of doing the hard work you already did.

So you were born to feel nice? Instead of doing things and experiencing them?

Don't you see the plants, the birds, the ants and spiders and bees going about their individual tasks, putting the world in order, as best they can?

If you accomplish something good with hard work, the labor passes quickly, but the good endures; if you do something shameful in pursuit of pleasure, the pleasure passes quickly, but the shame endures.

I woult rather die of passion than of boredom.

What we fear of doing most is usually what we most need to do.

A year from now you may wish you had started today.

Passion is the genesis of genius.

When you want to be successful as bad as you breathe, then you'll be successful.

To give anything less than your best, is to sacrifice the gift.

Amateurs think about shortcuts and success. Professionals think about daily habits and progress.

Successful people begin where failures leave off. Never settle for just getting the job done.

Fill the day with enthusiasm. Give the day all you've got and it will give you all it's got, which will be plenty.

Your true success in life begins only when you make the commitment to become excellent at what you do.

Nothing great in the world has ever been accomplished without passion.

There is no reason to be found playing small - in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.

Success seems to be connected with action. Successful people keep moving. They make mistakes, but they don't quit.

I have learned that success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has had to overcome while trying to succeed.

Success is the sum of small efforts repeated day in and day out.

I think that my biggest attribute to any success that I have had is hard work. There really is no substitute for working hard.

Successful people are not gifted; they just work hard, then succeed on purpose.

To be successful, you must decide exactly what you want to accomplish, then resolve to pay the price to get it.

The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand.

We live in the kind of society where, in almost all cases, hard work is rewarded.

Always go with your passions. Never ask yourself if it's realistic or not.

Don't wish it were easier. Wish you were better.

Pleasure in the job puts perfection in the work.

The reward for work well done is the opportunity to do more.

Going all-in on something will make you feel alive and ultimately, satisfied.

Action may not always bring happiness, but there is no happiness without action.

Satisfaction lies in the effort, not in the attainment. Full effort is full victory.

To love what you do and feel that it matters - how could anything be more fun?

If you do not feel yourself growing in your work and your life broadening and deepening, if your task is not a perpetual tonic to you, you have not found your place.

No man needs sympathy because he has to work, because he has a burden to carry. Far and away the best prize that life offers is the chance to work hard at work worth doing.

The best I can do is to try to encourage you to work hard at something you really want to do and have the ability to do.

Because any fool knows that to work hard at something you want to accomplish is the only way to be happy.

Happiness does not come from doing easy work but from the afterglow of satisfaction that comes after the achievement of a difficult task that demanded our best.

The true way to render ourselves happy is to love our work and find in it our pleasure.

Power means happiness; power means hard work and sacrifice.

The fruit of your own hard work is the sweetest.

Earning happiness means doing good and working, not speculating and being lazy. Laziness may look inviting, but only work gives you true satisfaction.

Nobody who ever gave his best regretted it.

The purpose of work should be the common good.

It is not work that kills men, it is worry. Work is healthy; you can hardly put more on a man than he can bear. But worry is rust upon the blade. It is not movement that destroys the machinery, but friction.

Inner work is finding joy in work. Our real work is heart work and soul work.

I can say the willingness to get dirty has always defined us as an nation, and it's a hallmark of hard work and a hallmark of fun, and dirt is not the enemy.

I think the best way to get a good night sleep is to work hard throughout the day. If you work hard and, of course, work out.

If you invest nothing, the reward is worth little.

Hard work makes you feel good because you have accomplished something.

Whatever you have not strive hard to achieve will not strive hard to fade.

I have an enormous longing after the highest and best in all shapes - a longing which haunts me and is the demon which ever impels me to work, and will let me have no rest unless I am doing his behests.

Just set one day's work in front of the last day's work. That's the way it comes out. And that's the only way it does.

With slight efforts, how can we obtain great results? It is foolish even to desire it.

It's not about money or connections. It's the willingness to outwork and outlearn everyone when it comes to your business.

Make a pact with yourself today to not be defined by your past. Sometimes the greatest thing to come out of all your hard work isn't what you get for it, but what you become for it.
