Bear Bryant Quotes

For those that know me - you know that I am a proud graduate of the University of Alabama.  Coach Paul "Bear" Bryant was an incredible coach who motivated his players to be nothing short of the best in all walks of their lives.  It should come as no surprise that I love motivational quotes by "The Bear" 
Never quit. It is the easiest cop-out in the world. Set a goal and don't quit until you attain it. When you do attain it, set another goal, and don't quit until you reach it. Never quit. 
Bear Bryant

How can you make your dream come true, if you don't have one?
Visualize your goals and your subconscious will begin to work toward making your mental pictures come true.
You'll gradually grow into any condition you desire, provided you adjust your mental attitude to mirror the person who corresponds to those conditions.
If you advance with confidence in the direction of your dreams, and begin to live the life you imagine, you'll meet with success beyond your wildest imagination.
The only way to discover your limits of the possible is to go beyond them into the impossible.
You're the one who can stretch your horizon.

You have the power and the opportunity to change your life. You can make anything you want of it. It's not difficult, it just takes some effort.

See things as you would have them be instead of as they are. Develop a personal plan that focuses on what you want, not on what you have.

Your imagination will show you how to turn possibility into reality. Visualize your goals and your subconscious will work toward making those mental picture come true.

When you picture yourself as vividly winning, that alone will contribute immeasurably to your success.

Knowing your destination is all you need to get there.

Success has a price

There is no easy road to success. You've got to work a great deal harder than most people to get it.

Nothing worthwhile will come easily to you. Hard work will accomplish results that last.

No one has a corner on success. Pay the price for it and it's yours. No matter what you want from life you've got to give up something to get it.

There is no success at bargain basement prices. You'll find that the highway to success is a toll road.

Find your courage

Courage is the power to face your difficulties. It comes from the reserves of your mind that are more powerful than your outside circumstances.

When you recognize that you're bigger than your problems, you'll gain the courage necessary to overcome anything.

Your obstacles will look large or small to you according to whether you are large or small.

Courage is the capacity to confront what can be imagined. It gives you the ability to rise above your present reality.

Do not be afraid of making mistakes

No matter how many mistakes you make or how slow you progress, you are still way ahead of everyone who isn’t trying.

Are you rich?

Wealth without enjoyment is little consolation. Your real riches in life are riches of the head and heart. Satisfaction comes when you appreciate what you have.

While success is getting what you want, true happiness is wanting what you get.

It's not how much you have, but how much you enjoy that truly matters.

Riches lie within you, not in your material possessions.

You cannot have the success without the failures.  Any experience can be transformed into something of value.

Everything depends on the way you look at things.

What are stumbling blocks and defeat before you can be stepping stones to victory if you remain determined.

In all of your adversities lies the seeds of equivalent advantages.

In every defeat there is a lesson showing you how to win the next time .

View your problems as opportunities.
When it's dark enough you can see the stars.

How to win

The law of averages is on your side. The more you try, the greater your chance of succeeding.

Taking a risk is often your first necessary step toward success. If you don't take some risks, you won't get the chance to succeed.

While you are trying, you are winning. Never get discouraged. Every wrong attempt is another step forward. People that make no mistakes usually don't make anything.

Make up your mind not merely to overcome a thousand obstacles, but to win in spite of a thousand defeats.

Your mistakes are stepping stones to success and your installment payments to victory.

You can't be a winner and be afraid to lose.

Overcome your fears

Do the thing you fear and fear disappears.
Confront your fears, list them, get to know them and only then will you be able to put them aside and move ahead.

Your obstacles will melt away, if instead of cowering before them, you make up your mind to walk boldly through them.

One of the greatest surprises you'll experience, is when you discover that you can do what you were afraid you couldn't do.

The only thing you have to fear is fear itself. When you face the things that scare you, you open the door to freedom.
