Here's a couple of my favourites...

"Money likes speed... That's the secret few know about money. Money comes to those who ACT FAST! If you think, wonder, question, doubt, plan, meet, discuss or in any other way drag your feet... Money moves to the next person in line"... Dr. Joe Vitale

"Things may come to those who wait but only the things left over by those who hustle"... Abraham Lincoln

"You cannot push anyone up a ladder unless he is willing to climb himself." ~Andrew Carnegie

"Anyone who lives within their means suffers from a lack of imagination" ~ Oscar Wilde

"The person who gets the farthest is generally the one who is willing to do and dare. The sure-thing boat never gets far from shore." ~Dale Carnegie

"Don't fear failure so much that you refuse to try new things. The saddest summary of a life contains three descriptions: could have, might have, and should have." -- Louis E. Boone

"The only thing that stands between a man and what he wants from life is often merely the will to try it and the faith to believe that it is possible." -- Richard M DeVos

"Our limitations and success will be based, most often, on your own expectations for ourselves. What the mind dwells upon, the body acts upon." -- Denis Waitley

"Action may not always bring happiness; but there is no happiness without action." -- Benjamin Disraeli

"Dream lofty dreams, and as you dream, so shall you become. Your vision is the promise of what you shall one day be; your ideal is the prophecy of what you shall at last unveil."--James Allen

"Whatever you are, be a good one." --Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865)

"Continuous effort--not strength or intelligence--is the key to unlocking our potential." --Winston Churchill

"The walls we build around us to keep out the sadness also keep out the joy." -- Jim Rohn

I used to say, "Things cost too much." Then my teacher straightened me out on that by saying, "The problem isn't that things cost too much. The problem is that you can't afford it." That's when I finally understood that the problem wasn't "it" - the problem was "me."--Jim Rohn

"You see, in life, lots of people know what to do, but few people actually do what they know. Knowing is not enough! You must take action." -- Anthony Robbins
