A Quote by Bhagavad-Gita on action, anxiety, desires, and motivation

. . . Those who are motivated only by desire for the fruits of action are miserable, for they are constantly anxious about the results of what they do.

A Quote by Ayn Rand on achievement, competition, creativity, desires, goals, motivation, and work

Competition is a by-product of productive work, not its goal. A creative man is motivated by the desire to achieve, not by the desire to beat others.

A Quote by Arnold Palmer on beginning, certainty, challenge, courage, day, inspiration, life, losing, mind, motivation, poetry, practice, problems, success, work, and world

THE MAN WHO THINKS HE CAN: If you think you are beaten, you are, If you think that you dare not, you don't, If you'd like to win, but you think you can't, It's almost certain you won't. If you think you'll lose, you've lost, For out in the world you'll find, Success begins with a fellow's will, It's all in the state of mind. If you think you are outclassed, you are, You've got to think high to rise, You've got to be sure of yourself before You can ever win a prize. Life's battles don't always go To the stronger or faster man, But soon or late the man who wins Is the man who thinks he can. NOTE: A copy of this inspirational poem hangs on the wall in Arnold Palmer's office. Arnie has made it a practice to read the poem at the start of each day. It serves him as a source of inspiration, courage and motivation that enables him to attack whatever problems and challenges that day might bring. It works for Arnie. It will work for you. Try it.
