    "If you want anything bad enough to go out and fight for it, to work day and night for it.
    To give up your time,your peace and your sleep for it.
    If all that you dream and scheme is about it.
    And life seems useless and worthless without it.
    and if you gladly sweat for it and fret for it and plan for it
    and lose all your terror of the opposition for it.
    And if you go after that thing that you want
    With all of your capacity, strength and sagacity
    Faith, hope and confidence with ferocious tenacity.
    If neither poverty, famine or cold
    can keep you away from your goal
    If doggit and grim, you besiege and beset it
    With the help of God you'll get it."

    "Les Brown"

    Agreed Steven. It always used to amuse me when years ago the industry I worked in would often go on strikes for better wages etc. While they were doing that I was reading property books and mindset development. Today those ppl are still striking and marching for better wages...When will they learn.

    Don’t wish it were easier, wish you were better. - Jim Rohn

    I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed. –Michael Jordan

    We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit. – Aristotle

    Yesterday I was standing at the reception desk when a newly married female patient came up and told the receptionist that she wanted to change her name .

    With a sense of resignation she said . My husband expected be to change my name .

    For once the perfect words came into my brain and out of my mouth

    " that sounds like a fair deal , he only wants you to change you name , you probably want him to change everything but his name "

    Luckily the patient and the two female receptionist shared my sense of humor ..

    The quote for posterity could be

    When getting married a women often changes her name and expects a man to change everything but his name

    “Acquire worldly wisdom and adjust your behavior accordingly. If your new behavior gives you a little temporary unpopularity with your peer group…then to hell with them.”

    Charlie Munger

    "Like all of life's rich emotional experiences, the full flavor of losing important money cannot be conveyed through literature. Art cannot convey to an inexperienced girl what it is truly like to be a wife and mother. There are certain things that cannot be adequately explained to a virgin either by words or pictures."

    Fred Schwed Jr.

    "The hard part is discipline, patience, and judgment. Investors need discipline to avoid the many unattractive pitches that are thrown, patience to wait for the right pitch, and judgment to know when it is time to swing."

    Seth Klarman

    “Every once in a while, an up-or-down-leg goes on for a long time and/or to a great extreme and people start to say "this time it's different." They cite the changes in geopolitics, institutions, technology or behaviour that have rendered the "old rules" obsolete. They make investment decisions that extrapolate the recent trend. And then it turns out that the old rules still apply and the cycle resumes. In the end, trees don't grow to the sky, and few things go to zero.”

    Howard Marks

    The only reason you do not have what you want is because you are reinforced to do things which prevent you from getting what you want.
