Do the one thing you think you cannot do. Fail at it. Try again. Do better the second time. The only people who never tumble are those who never mount the high wire. This is your moment. Own it.
The key to life when it gets tough is to keep moving. Just keep moving.
It's so important to realize that every time you get upset, it drains your emotional energy. Losing your cool makes you tired. Getting angry a lot messes with your health.
Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude.
There is no better than adversity. Every defeat, every heartbreak, every loss, contains its own seed, its own lesson on how to improve your performance the next time.
You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.
Truth is the ultimate power. When the truth comes around, all the lies have to run and hide.
Joy is prayer; joy is strength: joy is love; joy is a net of love by which you can catch souls.
We think that forgiveness is weakness, but it's absolutely not; it takes a very strong person to forgive.
I'd be more frightened by not using whatever abilities I'd been given. I'd be more frightened by procrastination and laziness.
I never understood the idea that you're supposed to mellow as you get older. Slowing down isn't something I relate to at all. The goal is to continue in good and bad, all of it.
We all have our imperfections. But I'm human, and you know, it's important to concentrate on other qualities besides outer beauty.
Always be yourself, express yourself, have faith in yourself, do not go out and look for a successful personality and duplicate it.
I wouldn't have changed a thing in my past. Life is like dominoes: if you move one, it wouldn't fall the right way.
We are all born as empty vessels which can be shaped by moral values.
There's no prerequisites to worthiness. You're born worthy, and I think that's a message a lot of women need to hear.
Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.
With love, you should go ahead and take the risk of getting hurt because love is an amazing feeling.
Failure is a great teacher, and I think when you make mistakes and you recover from them and you treat them as valuable learning experiences, then you've got something to share.
First thing I do in the morning is give thanks to God for another day, and then turn to HLN News or ESPN to see what's going on in the world.
I know I want to always do the best I can.
Sometimes I make myself laugh, but that's because I appreciate my sense of humor.
Everybody wants to be famous, but nobody wants to do the work. I live by that. You grind hard so you can play hard. At the end of the day, you put all the work in, and eventually it'll pay off. It could be in a year, it could be in 30 years. Eventually, your hard work will pay off.
I love being in my own skin, and I hope other women start feeling better about themselves and waste less energy being ashamed of their bodies.
You've got to love yourself first. You've got to be okay on your own before you can be okay with somebody else.
I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.
I had everything I'd hoped for, but I wasn't being myself. So I decided to be honest about who I was. It was strange: The people who loved me for being funny suddenly didn't like me for being... me.
Success isn't always about greatness. It's about consistency. Consistent hard work leads to success. Greatness will come.
You're the only one that's in control of your emotions; you're the only one that's inside of you at all times. So control you however you want to. If you're not happy, that's your fault.
You may not always have a comfortable life and you will not always be able to solve all of the world's problems at once but don't ever underestimate the importance you can have because history has shown us that courage can be contagious and hope can take on a life of its own.
Just speak yourself into existence. Whatever you want, speak it. You can see it.
We're all spending way too much of our time and energy trying to fight the stuff we can't change.
Choosing to be positive and having a grateful attitude is going to determine how you're going to live your life.
I don't know what else I would be if I wasn't me. I am not looking from the outside, looking back. I am who I am.
Sometimes a loss is the best thing that can happen. It teaches you what you should have done next time.
You can't let fear paralyze you. The worse that can happen is you fail, but guess what: You get up and try again. Feel that pain, get over it, get up, dust yourself off and keep it moving.
You can't move mountains by whispering at them.
Excellence is being able to perform at a high level over and over again. You can hit a half-court shot once. That's just the luck of the draw. If you consistently do it... that's excellence.
You can undo a lot of things. If you're not happy, you can become happy. Happiness is a choice. That's the thing I really feel.
If we can't look at the good, bad and ugly of who we are, we are never going to progress as people - ever.
I'm a big believer in personal responsibility. My life wasn't always peaches and roses. Where I am today is through a belief in hard work and never saying no.
