John Bird Quotes

"I was able to move onwards not by aiming for the top job, but by doing one thing at a time."

"Life is about taking steps that move you forwards."

"You donít have to worry about going forwards quickly. What matters is that you are moving and that you keep moving until you hit your limits."

"You canít be anything you want. But you can be something."

"Work with what you have instead of wishing for what you canít have or what someone else has got."

"Optimism does not mean you wonít worry."

"But there are different kinds of worry. There is the kind of worry that leaves your brain numb, where you sit on the couch and do nothing and just sink into despair. And then there is good worry, when just thinking about doing something new gets you all tense and excited."

"Just because you want to do something doesnít mean the rest of the world shares your delight."

"Optimism is something you have to fight for every day."

"Turning your mind around when it is telling you it canít see the road ahead is tough. Just remember, itís not a problem. Itís part of your journey to success."
