To play any game, you have to start. To win, you need to keep going. If you want to make your dreams come true, get ready for the long game. Life is not a one and done sort of deal. You’ve got to work for what you want. Picasso created nearly 100 masterpieces in his lifetime. But what most people don’t know is that he created a total of more then 50,000 works of art… That’s two pieces of art a day. Success is a numbers game.

To change you must do the same, you must ignore how you feel, and just do it anyway.” – Mel Robbins

And it happens in less than—you guessed it—five seconds.” – Mel Robbins
