Top Working Hard And Getting Nowhere Quotes

Working Hard And Getting Nowhere Quotes By Brett Hull

Because I don't look like I'm skating around as hard as Bobby Bassen doesn't mean my mind isn't working twice as hard as Bobby's mind. Just because I can't fight like Kelly Chase doesn't mean standing in front of the net getting cross-checked and slashed isn't toughness as well. — Brett Hull

Working Hard And Getting Nowhere Quotes By Megyn Kelly

I knew there would be no shortcuts for me in life-we didn't have money or access to people of power. I knew, if I was going to have any success, it would be a result of getting educated and working hard-as hard or harder than my parents did. — Megyn Kelly

Working Hard And Getting Nowhere Quotes By John Barrasso

We need to focus on getting people back to work, focus on jobs, the economy, the debt and the spending. That's what will improve the quality of life for American families and for hard-working taxpayers. — John Barrasso

Working Hard And Getting Nowhere Quotes By Charles Bukowski

The idea, of course, might be to let them know that writing needn't be hard work; the hard work is getting out of bed in the morning or at noon; the hard work is looking at people's faces in long supermarket lines; the hard work is working for somebody else who is making money using your life's hours and years. — Charles Bukowski

Working Hard And Getting Nowhere Quotes By Jessica Springsteen

I think working hard at anything when you're young and getting positive results, it's always an incredible feeling to see that. — Jessica Springsteen

Working Hard And Getting Nowhere Quotes By Scott Galloway

Getting a good job, working long hours, keeping your skills relevant, navigating the politics of an organization, finding a live/work balance...these are all really hard. In contrast, respecting institutions, having manners, demonstrating a level of humility...these are all (relatively) easy. Get the easy stuff right. In and of themselves they will not make you successful. However, not possessing them will hold you back and you will not achieve your potential. — Scott Galloway

Working Hard And Getting Nowhere Quotes By Fred Thompson

A lot of people out there working hard and finally building up to getting a pretty good income. Higher tax rates on them, you know, the income rates going up, the dividend rates are going up, the capital gains rates all going up before health care kicks in. — Fred Thompson

Working Hard And Getting Nowhere Quotes By Arnold Schwarzenegger

When you're out there partying, horsing around, someone out there at the same time is working hard, someone is getting smarter, and somebody is winning, just remember that. — Arnold Schwarzenegger

Working Hard And Getting Nowhere Quotes By Bernie Sanders

The main problem of America is that you're seeing people working all over this country two jobs, they're working three jobs, and they're getting nowhere in a hurry. They're working hard. They can't afford to send their kids to college in many instances. They can't afford child care for their little babies. They're worried to death about retirement. — Bernie Sanders

Working Hard And Getting Nowhere Quotes By Ariel Pink

Everything comes with hard work. You never get to stop working. I don't see myself ever getting comfortable enough to not have to worry about working. — Ariel Pink

Working Hard And Getting Nowhere Quotes By Tony Abbott

Our police, our hard-working police, that our extraordinarily committed and dedicated military personnel, I'm really pleased that they are getting a good paid parental leave scheme. — Tony Abbott

Working Hard And Getting Nowhere Quotes By D.R. Mirror

Lions and goats are friends. There are hard working jabbering animals who are slaves to the tiny disgusting rats. The fruits are larger than the parent trees ... the mighty illusions are in every single thing ... flowers are burning to touch and there are no nights in this amazing world ... and now this amazing labyrinth ... Where are we ... What is this place? Rosalina blurted out, getting the consistently mouthing soul of Palatablo on the spur of the moment. — D.R. Mirror

Working Hard And Getting Nowhere Quotes By Kasey Kahne

We started on the pole but by Lap 150 we were ninth or 10th and we were struggling. The car was sliding around a lot, but I did not get upset. I just said, 'Let's just keep working hard.' Last year, I would have been so upset about getting passed by those cars I would have been overly aggressive and would have worn our tires out. You can't do that in a 500-mile race if you want to be strong at the end. — Kasey Kahne

Working Hard And Getting Nowhere Quotes By Andy Rooney

It isn't working that's so hard, it's getting ready to work. — Andy Rooney

Working Hard And Getting Nowhere Quotes By Jon Jones

I really feel like a walking testimony of like if you set your mind to things, how things can come true for you. I feel like I'm like, like the law of attraction. I feel like I'm living that life wholeheartedly. Everything that I've looked for out of life, it's come to be so far ... I'm working hard, I'm not getting lucky, I'm earning things ... I feel like a living testament to how you can just put your mind to anything and make it happen. — Jon Jones

Working Hard And Getting Nowhere Quotes By Peyton Manning

In the NFL game today, there are a lot of better athletes than I am, and quarterbacks these days are faster than the quarterbacks have always been, they're running like crazy. But I kind of stick to my roots of the disciplined quarterback. You know, I'm doing the same routine every week, studying tapes and working hard, getting ready to play and making good decisions on Sundays. — Peyton Manning

Working Hard And Getting Nowhere Quotes By Seth Godin

When you're doing hard work, getting rejected, failing, working it out - this is a dumb time to make a situational decision about whether it's time for a nap or a day off or a coffee break. Zig Ziglar taught me this twenty years ago. Make your schedule before you start. Don't allow setbacks or blocks or anxiety to push you to say, "hey, maybe I should check my e-mail for a while, or you know, I could use a nap." If you do that, the lizard brain will soon be trained to use that escape hatch again and again. — Seth Godin

Working Hard And Getting Nowhere Quotes By Rich Lowry

If Hillary can't win the nomination - and it's clearly very, very hard for her - she's basically a stalking horse for McCain. She's preparing the demographic ground for McCain, by getting white working-class Democrats used to (if you will) not voting for Obama. — Rich Lowry

Working Hard And Getting Nowhere Quotes By Laurie Halse Anderson

I spent the last Friday of summer vacation spreading hot, sticky tar across the roof of George Washington High. My companions were Dopey, Toothless, and Joe, the brain surgeons in charge of building maintenance. At least they were getting paid. I was working forty feet above the ground, breathing in sulfur fumes from Satan's vomitorium, for free.
Character building, my father said.
Mandatory community service, the judge said. Court-ordered restitution for the Foul Deed. He nailed me with the bill for the damage I had done, which meant I had to sell my car and bust my hump at a landscaping company all summer. Oh, and he gave me six months of meetings with a probation officer who thought I was a waste of human flesh.
Still, it was better than jail.
I pushed the mop back and forth, trying to coat the seams evenly. We didn't want any rain getting into the building and destroying the classrooms. Didn't want to hurt the school. No, sir, we sure didn't. — Laurie Halse Anderson

Working Hard And Getting Nowhere Quotes By Natalie Zea

When I started, I had a really hard time getting work. It was the mid- to late-nineties. There was the WB. My age was perfect for it, but I just never came across as a youngster. I had to grow into my age in order to start working, and by the time I did, it was when things started to get good. — Natalie Zea

Working Hard And Getting Nowhere Quotes By Shweta Ganesh Kumar

She still loved the profession and enjoyed the lives and piece to cameras, but she knew it was all a tad too farcical at times. There were far too many stories they reported and forgot. Far too many conflicts that were once headlines and had captured the imaginations of many now awaited resolution, stale and unwanted as yesterday's tea. It was hard to keep up your spirit when you started realizing it was just a job after all and that a headline did not change someone's destiny. Except maybe the reporter's if she or he was picked up by a rival channel for better pay. So getting into the profession wanting to make a difference and working for the greater good as the journalists of yore had done was certainly not an option anymore. — Shweta Ganesh Kumar

Working Hard And Getting Nowhere Quotes By Christina Romer

Most arguments for instituting or raising a minimum wage are based on fairness and redistribution. Even if workers are getting a competitive wage, many of us are deeply disturbed that some hard-working families still have very little. — Christina Romer

Working Hard And Getting Nowhere Quotes By Khloe Kardashian

When I started working out, it wasn't about weight loss; I was going through a really hard time and needed an emotional release. Once you start getting in the tabloids claiming you have fake body parts, then it's like, 'Okay, I made it. Now I'm really working out.' — Khloe Kardashian

Working Hard And Getting Nowhere Quotes By Eric Thomas

One of the things I know about my family, my generation, and my ethic background is that we put in work and I'm not just talking about just to eat. You have to think about the civil rights movement, they were putting in work; marching, walking miles and miles, sacrificing, getting on the bus, feeding one another, they had schools, voter registration, they were working! They were hard workers so my advice is to work. — Eric Thomas

Working Hard And Getting Nowhere Quotes By Brian Tracy

Rule: Resist the temptation to clear up small things first. Remember, whatever you choose to do over and over eventually becomes a habit that is hard to break. If you choose to start your day working on low-value tasks, you will soon develop the habit of always starting and working on low-value tasks. This is not the kind of habit you want to develop or keep. The hardest part of any important task is getting started on it in the first place. Once you actually begin work on a valuable task, you will be naturally motivated to continue. A part of your mind loves to be busy working on significant tasks that can really make a difference. Your job is to feed this part of your mind continually. Motivate — Brian Tracy

Working Hard And Getting Nowhere Quotes By L. Todd Rose

Growing up in rural Utah had a lot of benefits, but in an environment that prized conformity, fit wasn't one of them. I ended up in my senior year with a 0.9 GPA, which I think you actually have to work pretty hard to get. In the exact same month they kicked me out of school, my girlfriend - still my wife today - told me she was pregnant. So, it was an interesting start to life: working 10 or 12 minimum-wage jobs; getting bored really quickly and quitting; having my in-laws - rightly - in full panic mode and thinking I had some kind of character flaw. — L. Todd Rose

Working Hard And Getting Nowhere Quotes By Z.A. Maxfield

I liked laughing, I found out, and music. I liked nice people, getting up early, and working hard. I liked simple pleasures, like my toes in the sand and someone to kiss. — Z.A. Maxfield

Working Hard And Getting Nowhere Quotes By Dean Koontz

Well, Mr Thomas, while I'm in favour of education, I couldn't in good conscience recommend a university career in anything but the hard sciences. As a working environment, the rest of academia is a sewer of irrationality, hate mongering, envy, and self-interest. I'm getting out the moment I earn my twenty-five-year pension package, and then I'm going to write novels ... — Dean Koontz

Working Hard And Getting Nowhere Quotes By Aaron Lazar

I know I can't plan in this business, but I'm going to keep going as long as I keep getting close ... So far, I feel lucky and infinitely grateful for the successes that I've had. I'm just going to keep working hard, and whatever happens, happens. — Aaron Lazar

Working Hard And Getting Nowhere Quotes By Douglas R. Casey

Remember, the essence of becoming wealthy is to produce more than you consume and save the difference. But it's
hard to maximize value working for somebody else. [...] There is cause and there is effect. You don't want to be the
effect of somebody else's cause. You want to be the cause for everything in your life. That implies working for

Working Hard And Getting Nowhere Quotes By James Surowiecki

I tend to have a hard time working on pieces long before they're due. That's why I think the fact that I write a column is really good for me - the column has to be done, and there's no getting around it. — James Surowiecki

Working Hard And Getting Nowhere Quotes By Syd Barrett

Getting used to the studio and everything was fun, we freaked about alot. I was working very hard then. — Syd Barrett
