Your talent is a blank check. ~Matshona Dhliwayo
1. Don’t choose a profession you can live with; choose a profession you can’t live without.
2. Your talent is a blank check.
3. Don’t aim to break the glass ceiling; aim to shatter it.
4. Dream with both eyes open, both ears listening, and both hands working.
5. You become the master of what you master.
6. Excellence in obscurity is better than mediocrity in the spotlight.
7. Do what no one else can do and you will become what no one else can become.
8. Bend the rules only if you have learned them; break the rules only if you have mastered them.
9. An ounce of wisdom is better than a pound of talent.
10. Seek to be the smartest in a room, not the loudest.
11. Conquer your fears before they conquer you.
12. Never allow temporary defeat to keep you from lasting victory.
13. Talent is the seed, hard work is the stem, perseverance is the branch, and success is the fruit.
14. Never dim your light because others are too afraid to come out of the dark.
15. Unleash the potential that is in another and you unleash the potential that is in you.
16. Work hard, and you will earn good rewards. Work smart, and you will earn great rewards. Work hard and work smart, and you will earn extraordinary rewards.
17. Don’t settle for a star when you can have the whole sky.
18. Water your dreams with fear, and they will wilt; with doubt, and they will wither; with hope, and they will grow; with faith, and they will flourish.
19. Dream like a child. Reason like an elder. Play like a youth. Work like an adult.
20. “Let your work speak for itself:
If poor, it will remain silent.
If average, it will whisper.
If good, it will talk.
If great, it will shout.
If genius, it will sing.”
