You don't have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.
If you spend too much time thinking about a thing, you'll never get it done.
It had long since come to my attention that people of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them. They went out and happened to things.
The secret of getting ahead is getting started. The secret of getting started is breaking your complex overwhelming tasks into small manageable tasks, and starting on the first one.
You are what you do, not what you say you'll do.

Things may come to those who wait, but only the things left by those who hustle.
The worst thing you can do is nothing.

Believe you can and you're halfway there.
