the excuses made by the mediocre fellow could be but aren't made by the
"What really matters is not how much intelligence you have but how you
use what you do have."

the thinking that guides your intelligence is much more important than
how much intelligence you may have."
"With a positive, optimistic, and cooperative attitude a person with

than a negative, pessimistic, uncooperative individual with an IQ of 120."
"Just enough sense to stick with something—a chore, task, project—until
it's completed, pays off much better than idle intelligence, even if idle
intelligence be of genius calibre."
"Remind yourself several times daily, "My attitudes are more important
than my intelligence." At work and at home practise positive attitudes.
See the reasons why you can do it, not the reasons why you can't. Develop
an "I'm winning" attitude. Put your intelligence to creative positive use.
Use it to find ways to win, not to prove you will lose."

Everyone encounters plenty of unpleasant, embarrassing, and discouraging
situations. But unsuccessful and successful people deal with these situations
in directly opposite ways."

on the unpleasant situations, thereby giving them a good start in their
memory. They don't take their minds away from them. At night the unpleasant
situation is the last thing they think about."
"Confident, successful people, on the other hand, "don't give it another
thought." Successful people specialize in putting positive thoughts
into their memory bank."
"Doing what's right keeps your conscience satisfied. And this builds
