Be the best, because just good enough will never change the world

@Nathan Killebrew "nothing ventured, nothing gained" -
That's what I was going to add, I'm also not 100% certain on the source though I've mainly heard it attributed to Henry Ford.
One about life that hit me recently:
"Pain is inevitable,
suffering is optional."

The obvious shortness of life. Yesterday I was garage band jamming in HS and chasing girls. Today I'm gray, bald, overweight and arthritic. What the hell happened?

“There is little progress in the comfort zone, and little comfort in the progress zone.”
This one speaks to me. Life can definitely be good living in comfort, but it is much better when I push myself to be something greater albeit uncomfortable.

Big thing for me is stepping out of my comfort zone and pushing through fear:
"Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy."
@Rob Massopust Love that Tyson quote
‘You can have more than you got, because you can be more than you are’ -Jim Rohn
I love this quote because it speaks to a growth mindset, continue to better yourself and your life will act accordingly. 6 months ago I dropped out of college with no motivation until I began developing myself to the point where I plan to have my first property by the time I’m 20, I’m moving to Chicago with sales job, I have a better relationship with my family, and somehow..I’m making more money than I ever have.
"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat."

"Give a girl the right pair of shoes and she can change the world" - Marilyn Monroe
Chinese Proverb – “The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.”
Life - It's better than the alternative.
Be greedy when others are fearful and fearful when others are greedy.
Don't spend the money until the check clears.
@Nathan Killebrew “If title dictated my behavior as a clerk serving the public, I wouldn't be allowed to spit water at that guy, but I did. So, my point is that people dictate their own behavior. “
Basically anything Randall says in Clerks and what the contractor says about working on the Death Star.
Read a lot of quotes growing up so it’s the cheeky ones that stick out to me

I own a boxing club, and one of my favorite quotes is on the wall of the gym:
“A champion is someone that gets up when he can’t.”
- Jack Dempsey
I just imagine how many situations that quote applies to, and how important that type of thinking is in terms of success.
Back in college i looked for some quotes in Latin to sound more educated. However one stuck with me.
