  1. Ulysses S. Grant: "I must live and my family must live. Perhaps I could serve the army by providing good bread to them" (Nobody would hire Ulysses. Ulysses eventually sought work with the Union Army and the officer in charge of the army chose not to speak to him. Ulysses eventually became the General of the Army then followed by the Presidency of the United States. We have to do what we must do even if it is serving bread)

  2. Brian K. Rice: "Complaining with no action is my number one pet peeve. Go better yourself" (why do you workout-to better yourself; why do you read-to better yourself; why do you change jobs-to better yourself; why do you go to school-to better yourself; why do you change your friends-to better yourself; why do you sacrifice-to better yourself; Quit Complaining-Go Better Yourself. Grrrrrh)

  3. "Don't let your past dictate your present. Let your future dictate your present." (Brian K. Rice: The old saying that says 'those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it' has too many people stuck. Quit worrying about yesterday. It is over. Learn from it and move on. Think about your future and develop your plan of progress. Too many people are stuck on the problem, the cause, and the history. Move On!)

  4. Brian K. Rice: Get over your setbacks. (Mahatma Gandhi was so fearful of public speaking that he became tongue tied when representing his first client in court that he could barely say a word as a lawyer. He was humiliated and had to give all of the previous payments back to his client and send his client to someone else. Look who he became); (Benjamin Disraeli, during his 1st speech in the House of Commons, people laughed at him so bad that he immediately sat down and said the following statement, "I sit down now. But the time will come when you will hear me." 31 years later he became the British Prime Minister.)

  5. Brian K. Rice: Single people, take advantage of your season of singleness. Set your goals high and go after them with urgency because there will come a time for many of you, where your own goals will no longer be the priority as your priority shifts to the success and well being of the mate and the kid(s). For many, they never get a 2nd chance to go after their own dreams. Hopefully, you get the blessings you desire.

  6. Lonnie Mathews: "So what are you doing" (This is usually the most popular question asked when you cross paths with old friends after several years. This is especially true at class reunions, homecomings, weddings of childhood friends and so on. You are either going to have a story you want to tell or you are going to start making excuses) (Brian K. Rice: set your goals now and get serious about them.)

  7. John Wesley: “Catch on fire with enthusiasm and people will come from miles to watch you burn.” Brian K. Rice: (this is for the speakers, teachers, & especially preachers)

  8. "There is no ceiling on effort" (How do you know you can't do something until you have really tried? How hard are you willing to work for something you really want? What’s wrong with having a sense of dignity by doing your best? People will remember if you were a slacker or a hard worker and there will come a day when you will need a referral or a recommendation, so give your best.) ~by Brian K. Rice

  9. "The best way to predict the future is to create it." by Dr. Forrest C. Shaklee (B. Rice Thoughts: create your tomorrow, predict your future the best you can, change your outcome for next year by using your imagination and working towards your imagination today)

  10. “Sometimes a man devotes all of his life to the development of one part of his body… his wishbone” by Allen Gray

  11. George Washington Carver: "Learn to do common things uncommonly well; we must always keep in mind that anything that helps fill the dinner pail is valuable." (This quote came to mind last night as I was thinking about reaching my personal idea of success. Too often we practice for sports but rarely do we practice making those skills better that will improve our chance for real success outside of sports ~by Brian K. Rice)

  12. Donald Trump "If you're going to be thinking, you may as well think big." (My thoughts: It disappoints me to see people only reach for the easy stuff. It disappoints me to hear people only talk about small stuff. People could have so much more but they don't shoot for the moon they shoot for the little targets and when they hit or miss they live a life of shortcomings. ~by Brian K. Rice)

  13. “Only as high as I reach can I grow, only as far as I seek can I go, only as deep as I look can I see, only as much as I dream can I be.” by K. Ravn (Stretch to your limits, stop holding yourself back by limiting your thinking ~by Brian K. Rice)

  14. "Oprah: "The only people who never tumble are those who never mount the high wire. This is your moment. Own it." (I feel like I am getting better and better at my high wire. How many people are just looking at their high wire and are not even trying to conquer it? Step out, try, fail, learn, try again, fail, learn and try again. Nothing worth having will just fall into your lap while you are sitting back looking. ~ by Brian K. Rice)

  15. "Be cautious when listening to other people's expectations for you. You should live your own life and you should live up to your own expectations." (Other people can give you good ideas so don't throw their ideas away too fast because they are not yours. Take what is good and keep it and throw the rest away. ~ by Brian K. Rice)

  16. Will Rogers: "Even if you are on the right track, you will get run over if you sit there" (Brian K. Rice: keep it moving, keep striving, shake off that laziness, shake off the haters, shake off the discouragement, you are almost there and you do not even know it)

  17. G Patton:"Success is how high you bounce when you hit the bottom" (Do not let this recession or your bad days keep you down. Bounce up & fight. Bounce up with a plan. Bounce up with determination. Bounce up with Faith. Bounce up. (Brian K Rice: I feel your pain, but every day I continue to put one foot in front of the other as I work my plan & follow HIS vision & my dreams. It ain't easy & It ain't too hard either)

  18. Derrick L. Strickland : "You have to be addicted to getting better" (Brian K Rice: We have to constantly seek new books to read, new productive social & business relationships & seek out good experiences & continue to grow in Christ daily. I believe once you truly realize it is up to you better yourself, then you need to start putting time aside daily for you, whether it is exercise of the mind or body)

  19. Dr. Seuss: "You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any way you choose. You’re on your own. And you know what you know. You are the person who’ll decide where to go." (Brian K. Rice: Do not get in your own way, use what you have in you & around you & get going. Learn what you need to learn & practice what you need to practice & get guidance where you need guidance)

  20. Bob Dylan: "A man is a success if he gets up in the morning and goes to bed at night and in between does what he wants to do." (Brian K. Rice: just think long and hard about how you can accomplish this. Remember this is not a perfect world but you can come up with a good plan for you)

  21. Brian K. Rice: "Sometimes you have to be your own trumpeter, your own fan club, your own announcer. Days will come and you will need to lift yourself. You are not going to always have that friend or significant other next to you who empathizes with your struggle or your victory. Clap for yourself if you have to. Raise your hands up high and continue on your way."

  22. Benjamin Franklin: "Hide not your talents; What good is a sun-dial in the shade" (Brian K. Rice: I betcha you have some gifts & talents that you are not using. Your friends & associates compliment you all the time for your knack but you keep pushing it into the shade for whatever reason. Oh! You are waiting until tomorrow or maybe next year or maybe when you have a little more time. You may be your own shade tree.)

  23. Antoine De Saint-Exupery: "A goal without a plan is just a wish" (Brian K. Rice: Pull that paper out, use your computer and prepare that plan to where you want to go. Nobody else can do it for you. Its your dream, your goal, your desire, your purpose. Don't forget to set your target higher than your goal. You don't have to hit the bullseye every time to win the match, but you should aim for the bullseye every time.")

  24. Steve Jobs: "Don't let the NOISE of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice." (Brian K. Rice: Sometimes others' opinions is nothing more than NOISE. You have to filter out the rubbish and keep what is of good-quality and continue moving ahead to your own destination. Listen to your gut instincts. Remember, some people can't see your vision, but if they can and give you good advice then accept it.)

  25. Brian K. Rice inspired by William Blake: "Think in the morning, act throughout the day, prepare in the evening, eat in between, and sleep in the night and I guarantee if you will do this daily you will grasp whatever you want." (if you can grasp where you want to go, then you can think of a plan that will take you there and then all that is left is for you to act out that plan.)

  26. Mary Case: "No Pressure, No Diamonds" (Brian K. Rice: Do you really want what you talk about? Do you really want the reward? Are you willing to put in the work? Are you willing to make necessary sacrifices? Are you willing to pressure yourself with goals and deadlines to reach certain dates and certain steps? If you don't pressure yourself, who do you expect to pressure you?)

  27. Robert S Milligan: "If you are standing still, you are falling behind" (Brian K. Rice: Is there something in your life that you are just waiting on when you need to go for it? Don't get stuck in your own thoughts, take the first step. Remember this if you don't remember anything else; the player or person who is practicing today will beat you tomorrow.)

  28. Japanese Proverb: "Vision without action is a daydream. Action without vision is a nightmare." (Brian K. Rice: Step out without a plan & see what kind of nightmare you create. I know you want to go for it, just what until your plan is in place. If you are not the visionary, sit down with someone who is & create your plan so you can avoid that nightmare. We all day dream but how many of us make a reality out of them?)

  29. Arthur Ashe: "Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can." (Brian K. Rice: Okay, so you have established that you are either behind, ahead, or even, SO NOW WHAT. Complaining about what you don't have & dreaming of the future without action, will continue to hold you back. Hopefully by now you have realized what things you can do well, SO NOW WHAT. No time is better than the present to do what you can)

  30. Ken Venturi: "I don't believe you have to better than everybody else, you just have to be better than you ever thought you would be" (Brian K. Rice: Push the envelope, Push yourself. Shoot for what is unexpected to you, you just may get it and surprise yourself. Can you honestly say you have pushed yourself recently and when was the last time you had a major victory whether on the job or just in life?)

  31. Brian K. Rice 30th B-day quote: "reach further than you have ever reached, stop knocking and kick the doors of opportunity in, use your life to be an example for others, inspire somebody, uplift someone, choose your actions carefully, don't be beaten by failure, utilize your mind, magnify your gifts, believe in the one true God and solidify your purpose."

  32. Mark Twain: "You can't depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus" (Brian K. Rice: We tell kids to use their imagination & be creative but as we get older we lose our imagination. Imagine where you want to be. Imagine where you want to go. Imagine what it will take. Now start using your eyes & your natural ability & all the tools & resources around & go for it. Turn your imagination into a reality)

  33. Jean Claude Killy: "The best and fastest way to learn a sport is to watch and imitate a champion" (Brian K. Rice: this statement does not stop with sports, you can use it with that business you want to start or that business you want to grow, or that position you want to excel to or that position you want to succeed in, or that golden anniversary relationship you want to be in and so on.)

  34. "Sometimes you have to build your fortune at night and work to pay bills during the day." (Brian K. Rice: We are not all blessed with silver spoons, some of us have to work a double shift to create the success we want in life)

  35. Madonna: "I realize that I don't have limits. Limits are always influences that come from outside, from people who don't believe in themselves and their abilities. I firmly believe in myself. I know that I can do whatever I want and that I'll always reach my goals. (Brian K. Rice: Don't limit yourself by the thoughts of others. No one knows your true capability. Use those gifts you have in you.)

  36. Muhammad Ali: "God gave me this illness to remind me that I'm not number One; He is."

  37. Great Debaters: What is a man's/woman's greatest weakness?---Doubt. (Brian K. Rice: Lightly speaking, many will say women for men. If anyone does not believe in themselves, there is nothing worthwhile that you will ever accomplish. If you happen to accomplish something you didn't think you would accomplish, just imagine what else you can accomplish if you you & in Him)

  38. Tom McLaughlin "You don't start to climb Mt. Everest with just energy and enthusiasm." (Brian K. Rice: Plan your plan. Get your equipment and supplies together for your journey. Get your team together. Now go and climb the mountains in your life.)

  39. Brian K. Rice: "Be Accountable. Take ownership of YOUR success and then HELP the next person"

  40. Brian K. Rice: (Think like the little engine that said "I think I can, I think I can"; BUT think a little differently. Say to yourself, "I KNOW I CAN, I KNOW I CAN, I KNOW I CAN")  

  41. Brian K. Rice: "Your work day is YOUR AMERICA. What does your work day look like and say about you? We all have choices in life and you can either "stay put" or "change your situation". Develop your plan and work your plan privately if you plan to do more. Keep your business out of the work place and go for what is meant for you. If your job is a perfect fit, then work your dreams like a side business"

  42. Brian K. Rice: Prepare for you harvest. Work as hard as you can for as long as your season of preparation last. Continue on...

  43. Endure...

  44. Brian K. Rice: "Keep seeking and you will find. Just keep asking yourself what is it that you would like to accomplish in life. You may want to accomplish multiple things. Those desires come from something that was placed in you and only you. You just need to make sure they are in line with Him. Your gifts, talents, passions and dreams were given to you for a reason.”

  45. Brian K. Rice: "Get closer to your dreams. Start sacrificing" (Yesterday was an amazing day of personal production. Work the j-o-b from 830-530, during lunch, I worked on my book for 45 min. I listened to an audiobook while during my tasks. From 5:45 until Panera kicked me out at 9pm, I continued to work but this time for myself. 9:30-10:15, reading/cardio on the stairclimber, 10:22-11:30 weights/swimming.)

  46. Brian K. Rice: Keep learning, Keep reading, Keep observing, Keep trying, Keep reaching, Keep believing

  47. Brian K. Rice: It is Saturday and you have most likely finished another work week. Use this day for personal progress or general personal activities - you choose, but don't waste it. If you are not content with your job or where you are in life, develop your plan and work your plan to exit, but don't waste your free time. There is not much free time after work and away from work on your off days, so work it.

  48. Brian K. Rice: Imagine yourself walking in pitch black darkness & someone comes up & pushes you down with all their might. You get up & they do again. You get back up & they barely push you this time but you fall out of fear & you stay on the ground because NO ONE EVER PUSHES YOU THERE. Get up from your comfort zone, get other peoples opinions out of you, & MOVE FORWARD toward your goals)

  49. Brian K. Rice: "Time management is key if anyone plans to better their situation. You have to be very disciplined with your free time. you wake up after 5-8 hrs, Your drive to and from work 2 hrs, your time at work 8-10 hrs, your lunch time 30 min to 1hr, your time for family folks 2-4 hrs, your time for dinner 1 hr, your time to better your situation 1-4 hrs a day, don't waste your time on naps and TV and fillers" Side Note: It is important that you put your kids on tight schedules after school to teach them time management skills as well as discipline and priorities)

  50. Art Buck: " The first time anything is done, it is done by amateurs" (Brian K Rice: if you believe in something bad enough, then do not let anyone stop you from doing it because they have not seen it done before. Believe in yourself.)

  51. Brian K. Rice: If you can eat at a McDonalds, then you can own your own McDonalds. If you can shop at your favorite store then you can own your favorite store. Drive around any descent size city and look at all of the businesses you pass as opportunities for your future. If they can own it, then you can own it. If they can be successful, then you can be successful.

  52. E.T. Trigg "the man who has accomplished all things worthwhile, has begun to die" (Brian K. Rice: Why are you content with the same daily routine of life when there is so much more to do? or Are you one of those people who say you are not content but do nothing to progress forward? if you are not on your death bed, there is all something worthwhile to do.)

  53. Brian K. Rice: "I have come to realize that it takes considerable discipline and sacrifice and prioritizing to make the most of what's left over in your day before or after work to accomplish worthwhile task. If you have a desire to follow your own passions, you must make the necessary sacrifices regardless of how tired and difficult it may be, even if you have to hire someone as needed to do administrative work"

  54. Brian K. Rice: "Sometimes it takes a team to make the dream work, Sometimes we have to partner, Sometimes we have to merge our ideas, Sometimes we have to pool our money together, Sometimes we have to divide and conquer. Get over your trust issues. You can't keep going around and trying to do everything yourself. Find someone who has the right gifts, talents and strengths that mesh well with yours."

  55. Brian K. Rice: Young professionals beware of horizontal networking. You have to stop just hanging out and socializing with other young professionals. Learn to join other groups that can really give you access instead of a false sense of access. Associate with those who can really open doors.

  56. Brian K. Rice: “if you plan on being successful working for others, you have to learn how to be culturally flexible“  (in corporate America, you have to learn how to adapt and look like those you are around especially if they are paying you. AND for the entrepreneur, you have to adapt to your customer needs.)

  57. Brian K. Rice: "Part of the genius of success comes down to your ability to make something out of nothing" (you may have been born into poverty; you may have no mentors follow; you may have made your mistakes and you are back at zero; you do not know anyone on the other side of the door, but you know you have to get in;) Keep trying, keep tinkering with new ideas but don't give up, don't give up

  58. Iyanla Vanzant: "What are you waiting for? There is: A dream to follow, a goal to set, a plan to make, a project for you to begin, an idea for you to act on, a possibility for you to explore, an opportunity for you to grab, a choice for you to make. If not, you should not have anything to talk about." (Brian K. Rice: It is time to begin and then complete your journey and quit wondering about it)

  59. ‎"Nothing ever built arose to touch the skies unless some man dreamed that it should, some man believed that it could, and some man willed that it must" by Charles F Kettering (Brian K. Rice: So what, nobody else believes in your dream. So what, that the person before you failed. So what, that your finances can't pay for it, yet. So what, there is no model to copy. Create your own model. Keep on.)

  60. Brian K. Rice: Sometimes, you have to burn that midnight oil for success. Doors open quickly and they close quickly.

  61. WEB Dubois: "Today is the seed time, now are the hours of work, and tomorrow comes the harvest and the playtime."

  62. Iyanla Vanzant: There is a direct correlation between how much is spent on prisons and how much is spent on education

  63. Brian K. Rice: "Find something to go after while you are waiting." If you feel like you are losing a lot of valuable time waiting on a job or on a person or on something else, learn to use that free time to go after another opportunity, you may surprise yourself with what you are able to accomplish versus twiddling your thumbs.

  64. Brian K. Rice: "take ownership of your time" (Weekly it seems that I am still hearing about people being laid off. What continues to blow mind, is that many people are not preparing for what they see coming & Many people get hired again by the same or a similar company & go right back into their complacency & they feel secure. Take advantage of your free time & create additional security.)

  65. Brian K. Rice: "He gave you the idea, you just did not go forward with it because you thought the idea was out of your league & you quickly pushed the idea to the side" (When you are focused on him, who gives you your thoughts? I know a lot of people who have JOKED about contacting some celebrity to fund their idea. You thought it was a joke when HE told you to think bigger. Quit passing over your ideas.)

  66. Brian K. Rice: "Everyday is like an independence day when you work for yourself and when you think for yourself" (Take advantage of your liberty to be you. Take advantage of your freedom to chase your dreams. Take advantage of your gifts. Out of the billions of people in this world you were given something distinctly different to do, so do it)

  67. Brian Peay: "Opportunity has a small price tag attached to it called HARD WORK" (Brian K. Rice: They say preparation meets opportunity, so what are you doing to prepare or are you just waiting around? Have you set aside time and are you using that time for you to prepare? When your opportunity presents itself will you be ready and will you have done enough preparation to win over the opportunity.)

  68. Brian K. Rice: "Too many people are looking for overnight success and not working. Most of the time, it takes years to be an overnight success. It is not a coincident that hard working people are more lucky." (if you follow my quotes you have probably seen a pattern of quotes that encourage people to work harder & to follow purpose. Our culture is naturally lazy & I want to encourage those that I can, to be better.)

  69. J.C. Penny: "Give me a stock clerk with a goal and I'll give you a man that will make history. Give me a man with no goals and I'll give you a stock clerk." (Brian K. Rice: Have you set your short term goals and your long term goals appropriately for your life and are you willing to make a reasonable effort to reach your goals or will you just be a stock clerk?)

  70. Wilma Rudolph: "Sometimes it takes years to really grasp what has happened to your life." (Brian K. Rice: It doesn't have to take a full year before you realize that a lot of time has flown by. How many times have you heard, where has the time gone? If you say that several times then your life can pass by in front of your eyes without you taking advantage of it. Make the most of your life & do what you want to do.)

  71. Arthur Ashe: "Going for it is more important than winning or losing" (Brian K. Rice: Take that chance, step out on faith, give it your best shot, you just may surprise yourself. Walking away with what you already have is the worse than can happen. If you never had much then starting again at zero is not a hard task. Don't be scared to go after that dream or that person of interest or that job promotion.)

  72. John Quincy Adams: "Duty is ours, results are God" (Brian K. Rice: all you have to do is wake up and work or get off of your job and do some work that is really meaningful to you so you can work towards your personal goals. Work your plan my brother, my sister. Work your plan.)

  73. Muhammad Ali: "The man who has no imagination has no wings" (Brian K. Rice: It is time to fly, think hard on your future and take what you can from your imagination and use that to power your wings so you can soar high above where you already are)

  74. "Now, Discover Your Strengths" by Buckingham & Clifton: "Each person's greatest room for growth is in the areas of their greatest strengths" (this is different than what we are taught, most people spend so much time trying to develop their weakest areas & not enough time on their strengths. If you are naturally God gifted in speaking, strategic thinking, or running then become the best we have ever seen in that area & people will recognize you for your greatest strengths

  75. Malcolm X: "Every defeat, every heartbreak, every loss, contains its own seed, its own lesson on how to improve your performance the next time." (keep learning, keep trying, keep searching, keep planting those seeds, don't accept failure, don't get too comfortable when you want more, keep searching in you, keep learning, keep improving, and keep trying ~ by Brian K. Rice)

  76. Stevie Wonder: "We all have ability. The difference is how we use it. You gots to work with what you gots to work with." (How many of us are maximizing our ability? How many of us are living a complacent life where you want more but you do nothing about it? Stevie used what strengths he had and became successful because he wanted too. What do you want and are you willing to put forth the effort? ~by Brian K. Rice)

  77. Modified Oprah quote: "Not only are you responsible for your life, but doing your best at every moment puts you in the best place for the next moment." (Sometimes we think we know where we are going in life but in the end we truly don't know what else will be presented to us, so do your best and more good things will be presented to you ~by Brian K. Rice)

  78. "If you accept the expectations of others, especially negative ones, then you never will change the outcome." by Michael Jordan (I believe people say they don't accept the expectations of others when they subconsciously do. When was the last time you impressed someone because you did more than was expected? ~by Brian K. Rice)

  79. "Each day as an entrepreneur and not as an employee I am convinced that if I perform well there is no doubt about my promotion each year because I am in control" (as I get closer to my official release of my book, Prepare For Your Success I am going to pull quotes from the book or relate to the book. One key to your success is defining what success means to you.) ~By Brian K. Rice

  80. Vince Lombardi: "We would accomplish many more things if we did not think of them as impossible." (I have personally witnessed many people saying they can't do something before they have even tried. It is time to change your thinking if you think this way and take a chance, you usually don't have anything to lose, so give it your best shot ~by Brian K. Rice)

  81. Malcolm X: "Education is our passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to the people who prepare for it today."  

  82. Malcolm X: "My alma mater was books, a good library.... I could spend the rest of my life reading, just satisfying my curiosity."

  83. “A strong, positive self-image is the best possible preparation for success.”  by J. Brothers

  84. "Every man is the architect of his own future and his own character" by G. Boardmen (With a vision you can design your future and with hard work you can accomplish your vision. With a vision of how you want others to view you, you can design & construct your ideal character. Prepare and plan for your best. ~by Brian K. Rice)

  85. "When you’re forced to stand alone, you realize what you have in you." (Don't be scared to step away from your comfort zone. Reach for your stars of success. You just may surprise yourself by your actions. Go for it.) ~by Brian K. Rice

  86. "Chinese Proverb: a journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step" (break down whatever task that are in front of you into one step at a time. Don't get discouraged by the size of the task, just keep chipping away and then one day you will have what you wanted. Things appear to be far away at first and they will remain if you do nothing about them. ~by Brian K. Rice)

  87. "Find a mentor, find a teacher, find a book, find a business plan, find an example" (if you want to start a business, find an example. I was at a networking function and the speaker stressed the need to follow and learn after someone else. Lets minimize our mistakes by learning from others first. We can waste a lot of time, money and energy trying to do everything ourselves without seeking proper advice first.)

  88. B. Rice: "You May Be Smart But Ignorance Can Derail A Good Idea." Find good consultants in the business before and after you open.

  89. Magic Johnson: "We have to change our thought process. We've been conditioned to live for today. We have to think ahead" (Brian K. Rice: most people know what they ultimately want in life but most people I have come across have not thought about the steps in between and they continue living life without a plan as they focus on the 'now'. Put your plan together and make it happen)

  90. USA Today: "Americans greatest fear is running out of money during retirement" (Brian K. Rice: If this is such a great fear why aren't more of us saving and investing for the long term. I believe too many of us are just living for now and we forget to plan for tomorrow

  91. "A budget tells us what we can't afford, but it doesn't keep us from buying it." (Learn to save so you can invest, be ready for that rainy day, plan for your future. It’s time to become more discipline; this recession has brought light to tough times for many people. It isn’t over, in the last 2 weeks I have learned of 2 more friends that lost their jobs.) ~by Brian K. Rice

  92. "You are not broke, your account is just frozen" (It is all about mindset. You need to prepare a secondary source of income that you are in control of. Nothing is guaranteed. A friend lost her job 2 days ago. Before she said anything else, I said I am excited for you because you will see personal growth and now is the opportunity for you to start providing for yourself as well even if you find another job.) Quote by Dennis Cunningham thoughts by B. Rice

  93. "I am broke right now, but I got a Rich God and Rich Mind, so I want be broke for long" (Believe in you and Believe in God and you will be inspired to live each day with a little more focus than the day before. Discover you and work towards your purpose by setting daily goals and accomplishing small daily victories. Believe my brother, believe my sister, believe) by Brian K. Rice

  94. "You have 4 working choices: (1) work for someone else, (2) work for yourself, (3) have people work for you, or (4) let your money work for you." (Most of us don't have enough money for the last choice and too often we are led to choice number without being exposed to the other choices. Life is about choices, so choose which choice you want and prepare a plan to get there.) by Brian K. Rice

  95. Brian K. Rice: "Oh if I just had a better job. If I could just get that promotion, I would be rich."( It isn't a job that creates wealth but sound investing. We have to change our mindset. Use the job for what it's worth, let it pay the bills & provide a way for you to invest in your future. Prepare your plan; no company is immune to tough times

  96. Brian K. Rice: "Plan for abundance and not just enough." (sit down with a mentor, successful entrepreneur, financial planner, stock broker, a savvy cpa, an investor, and learn how to prepare for financial abundance)

  97. "If a man empties his earnings into his head, no one can take it away from him. An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest." (by Benjamin Franklin) What are you doing with your time and money? Hmmm, watching TV I guess

  98. Buddha: "There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to truth; not going all the way, and not starting." (Brian K. Rice: get going and stay going)

  99. Brian K. Rice: It is September and another year is almost complete. What have you been doing? Are you closer to your personal goals? (Congrats to those who have used their time wisely. For others, don't push off your plans to January 1st, get started now. Just as change makes dollars, so does 30 minutes of productivity makes hours and then days and then months. Get going. Nobody is going to make you do anything.)

  100. The Will to Win by Berton Braley: If you want a thing bad enough to go out and fight for it, work day and night for it, give up your time and your peace and your sleep for it... If life seems all empty and useless without it and all that you scheme and you dream is about it, if gladly you'll sweat for it, fret for it, plan for it... If dogged and grim you besiege and beset it, You'll get it.

  101. Brian K. Rice: Listen to the young mans thoughts--- Should I go to college? ---I was told college isn't for everybody. ---and then I thought about it, WELL if college isn't for everybody then they are telling me that KNOWLEDGE isn't for everybody. --- and if they are directing that statement to me, then they are telling me that knowledge isn't for me. (Be mindful of what you are telling people. Give more direction.)

  102. Traffic Tip: "If you are stuck in traffic everyday you leave work find something better to do with your time. If you are going to get on the computer later, why don't you find the closest wi-fi spot to your job and get on the computer until traffic dies down. Go to the closest gym and exercise. Read a book. Do some classwork if you are still in school. Do something that is more productive than sitting in traffic.

  103. Darwin P. Kingsley: “Instead of thinking about what you're missing, try thinking about what you have that everyone else is missing.” (Brian K. Rice: Discover your unique gifts. Use your unique gifts. Maximize your unique gifts and others will reward you accordingly. Others will also try to emulate you.)

  104. J Oswald Sanders "A leader can only lead others as far as he or she has gone" (Brian K. Rice: Quit letting people lead you who have not gone anywhere)

  105. John P. Grier: “If it exists, it is possible”

  106. Rosalynn Carter: "A leader takes people where they want to go. A GREAT leader takes people where they don't necessarily want to go, but OUGHT to be." (Brian K. Rice: Help expand the horizon of those you come across. Don't let people limit themselves with small thinking. Challenge their self-belief. Challenge their confidence. Push them further. Push them into their own greatness.)

  107. St. John Chrysostom: "Every man is the painter and sculptor of his own life" (Brian K. Rice: If you want your body to look a certain way, you can sculpt yourself with exercise and diet. If you want your future to have a certain outcome, you can paint & sculpt that. If you want to mold your character, you can change the way you think and act with self-honesty, self-criticism, openness, discipline and effort.)

  108. Muhammad Ali: The will must be stronger than the skill. (Brian K. Rice: Who said you are not good enough? Who said you can't? How much belief do you have in you?)

  109. Muhammad Ali: "It isn't the mountains ahead to climb that wear you out; it's the pebble in your shoe." (Brian K. Rice: What is the pebble in your life? What is the pebble on your journey?)

  110. Muhammad Ali: "I hated every minute of training," but I said, "Don't quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion."

  111. Brian K Rice: If you plan to live at your highest level possible after prayer & faith, you must take it upon yourself to care of your body. Your skin, heart, self-esteem, appearance, & confidence will appreciate it. If you are able, there is no reason why you should go 3-4 days, weeks, months, or years with exercise. I hope everyone has the opportunity to live a full life for themselves, their family & future family.
