As a man sow, shall he reap, and I know that talk is cheap. But the heat of the battle is as sweet as the victory.
- Bob Marley
Obstacles are necessary for success because in selling, as in all careers of importance, victory comes only after many struggles and countless defeats.
- Og Mandino
I count him braver who overcomes his desires than him who conquers his enemies; for the hardest victory is over self.
It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell.
It is better to lead from behind and to put others in front, especially when you celebrate victory when nice things occur. You take the front line when there is danger. Then people will appreciate your leadership.
- Nelson Mandela
