It is the way we react to circumstances that determines our feeling.
Dale Carnegie (1888 - 1955)

If you want to gather honey, don't kick over the beehive.
If you want to be enthusiastic, act enthusiastic.
Take a chance! All life is a chance. The man who goes farthest is generally the one who is willing to do and dare.
There is only one way . . . to get anybody to do anything. . . . And that is by making the other person want to do it.
Success is getting what you want; happiness is wanting what you get.
People rarely succeed unless they have fun in what they are doing.
The most important thing in life is not simply to capitalize on your gains. Any fool can do that. The important thing is to profit from your loses. That requires intelligence, and makes the difference between a man of sense and a fool.
First ask yourself: What is the worst that can happen? Then prepare to accept it. Then prepare to improve on the worst.
Flaming enthusiasm, backed by horse sense and persistence, is the quality that most frequently makes for success.
