Do I not destroy my enemies when I make them my friends?Abraham Lincoln
“Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever. That surrender, even the smallest act of giving up, stays with me. So when I feel like quitting, I ask myself, which would I rather live with?”
– Lance Armstrong
You have to learn to ask questions in a way that will elicit more nuanced answers, rather than the answers you would like to get.
The key to realizing a dream is to focus not on success but on significance – and then even the small steps and little victories along your path will take on greater meaning.
The real opportunity for success lies within the person and not in the job.
