"I am not the richest, smartest or most talented person in the world, but I succeed because I keep going and going and going"
"When you're scared, when you're hanging on, when life is hurting you, then you're going to see what you're really made of."
"Success is usually the culmination of controlling failure."
"Life is more than sunglasses and hit movies. Reality that's the main event"
"If you express yourself too much, you're considered weak"
There is a saying that Aim for the sky, you will, at least, reach the hilltop. Sylvester Stallone has also shared the same view in one of his quotes. He says that if there is no mountain, create one and climb on it. When you succeed in doing that, build another bigger mountain to improve your own performance. Compete with yourself because at a certain stage there will be nobody better than you, you and you.
It is common that everyone may not be successful or the best. But you have to make the best effort to keep yourself going. The wise are those who find opportunities in failures. Eventually, success is the result of controlling failures. When you face failures and you still face the situation spunkily, you will emerge successfully.
It is good to express yourself, but you should not express too much to make others understand your weakness. If you talk a lot about yourself people will brand you as a weak person. Sylvester Stallone advises people to talk in order to communicate and to let others take advantage of your weakness.
