The reasons why proverbs, sayings, old wives tales or clichés are so common and are often repeated in various guises is because they’re true. Or at least there’s an element of truth in each one – that’s why they’re repeated so often.
You can’t go wrong by choosing one or two to live your life by…
My top three are:-
1. If you think you can do it you may be able to. If you think you can’t do it, you definitely won’t.
2. The best thing you can do is do it right. The second best thing you can do is do it wrong. The worst thing you can do is do nothing.
3. If you want something you’ve never had, you have to do something you’ve never done.
These three sayings resonate deeply with me because they are all related to taking some form of action. You have to motivate yourself to do something or you will be left standing still.
