Worrying gets you nowhere. If you turn up worrying about how you're going to perform, you've already lost. Train hard, turn up, run your best and the rest will take care of itself.
Anxiety will not bring you success; preparation and dedication are the keys to victory. Put in the effort, show up ready to give your all, and trust that the outcome will be as it should.
Don't wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. So what. Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful.
Mark Victor Hansen
By doing things when you are too tired, by pushing yourself farther than you thought you could - like running the track after a two-hour practice - you become a competitor. Each time you go beyond your perceived limit, you become mentally stronger.
Whoever can conquer the street will one day conquer the state, for every form of power politics and any dictatorship-run state has its roots in the street.
Whoever can master the avenue will eventually prevail over the country, for every manifestation of power politics and any authoritarian-controlled nation has its origins in the street.
Let the children be free; encourage them; let them run outside when it is raining; let them remove their shoes when they find a puddle of water; and when the grass of the meadows is wet with dew, let them run on it and trample it with their bare feet; let them rest peacefully when a tree invites them to sleep beneath its shade; let them shout and laugh when the sun wakes them in the morning.

There is always someone better than you. Whatever it is that you do for a living, chances are, you will run into a situation in which you are not as talented as the person next to you. That's when being a competitor can make a difference in your fortunes.
When I run after what I think I want, my days are a furnace of stress and anxiety; if I sit in my own place of patience, what I need flows to me, and without pain. From this I understand that what I want also wants me, is looking for me and attracting me. There is a great secret here for anyone who can grasp it.
We all have dreams. But in order to make dreams come into reality, it takes an awful lot of determination, dedication, self-discipline, and effort.
We all have aspirations. But in order to bring these visions into fruition, it necessitates a great deal of commitment, devotion, self-control, and exertion.
Run my dear, from anything that may not strengthen your precious budding wings. Run like hell my dear, from anyone likely to put a sharp knife into the sacred, tender vision of your beautiful heart.
Flee my beloved, from anything that may not nourish your precious blooming wings. Escape with haste my beloved, from anyone prone to plunge a sharp knife into the sacred, delicate view of your glorious heart.
Most people, including ourselves, live in a world of relative ignorance. We are even comfortable with that ignorance, because it is all we know. When we first start facing truth, the process may be frightening, and many people run back to their old lives. But if you continue to seek truth, you will eventually be able to handle it better. In fact, you want more! It's true that many people around you now may think you are weird or even a danger to society, but you don't care. Once you've tasted the truth, you won't ever want to go back to being ignorant
Sometimes it seem like to tell the truth today is to run the risk of being killed. But if I fall, I'll fall five feet four inches forward in the fight for freedom. I'm not backing off.
Fannie Lou Hamer
Sometimes it appears that being candid in the present is a danger to one's life. However, if I am vanquished, I will bravely advance five feet four inches forward in the battle for liberty. I shall not retreat.
Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it.
Ultimately, all entities coalesce into one, and a stream traverses it.
The Bible is alive, it speaks to me; it has feet, it runs after me; it has hands, it lays hold of me.
The Bible is animated, it resonates with me; it has legs, it pursues me; it has arms, it grasps me.
Trump says he wants to run for president. Why not? It wouldn't be the first time he pushed a black family out of their home.
Trump expresses his desire to become president. Why not? It wouldn't be the first time he has displaced an African American family from their residence.
The devil is afraid of us when we pray and make sacrifices. He is also afraid when we are humble and good. He is especially afraid when we love Jesus very much. He runs away when we make the Sign of the Cross.
Anthony of Padua
I have wondered at times what the Ten Commandments would have looked like if Moses had run them through the US Congress.
I have pondered at times what the Ten Commandments would have resembled had Moses presented them to the United States Legislature.
F-E-A-R has two meanings: 'Forget Everything And Run' or 'Face Everything And Rise.' The choice is yours.
'Dread has two interpretations: 'Disregard Everything And Hasten Away' or 'Confront Everything And Prosper.' The decision is yours.'
Guess what this liberal would be all about? This liberal will be about socializing...uh, um...Would be about, basically, taking over, and the government running all of your companies.
This progressive will be about socializing...uh, um...Would be about, basically, controlling, and the government managing all of your businesses.
People don't run out of dreams - people just run out of time.
'Dreams are limitless, but time is finite.'
I would rather have a country run like hell by Filipinos than a country run like heaven by the Americans, because however a bad Filipino government might be, we can always change it.
Manuel L. Quezon
I would rather have a nation governed incompetently by Filipinos than a country administered perfectly by the Americans, because however flawed Filipino leadership may be, we can always strive to make it better.
I don't know why America always thinks she has to run all around the world forcing people to take our way of governance at the barrel of a gun. When you've got something really good, you don't have to force it on people. They will steal it!
It’s a most natural way for me. I can tell people I can run in a saree and I can do five sequences in a saree. I can romance in a saree and I can do everything in a saree. For me, it’s a most versatile garment…it’s extremely sensuous and at the same time it is strong, there is an elegance and at the same time it teases your imagination…It’s very powerful.
Good propaganda does not need to lie, indeed it may not lie. It has no reason to fear the truth. It is a mistake to believe that people cannot take the truth. They can. It is only a matter of presenting the truth to people in a way that they will be able to understand. A propaganda that lies proves that it has a bad cause. It cannot be successful in the long run.
People aren't born strong. people grow stronger little by little, encountering difficult situations learning not to run from them.
Individuals are not born resilient. People gradually become more robust by facing arduous predicaments and learning to confront them.
You cannot run faster than a bullet.
You cannot outpace a projectile.
One of the greatest gifts a caring teacher can contribute to children is to help them learn to sit when they feel like running, to raise their hand when they feel like talking, to be polite to their neighbor, to stand in line without pushing, and to do their homework when they feel like playing. By introducing procedures in the classroom, you are also introducing procedures as a way of living a happy and successful life.
We ain't gonna fight no reactionary pigs who run up and down the street being reactionary; we're gonna organize and dedicate ourselves to revolutionary political power and teach ourselves the specific needs of resisting the power structure, arm ourselves, and we're gonna fight reactionary pigs with INTERNATIONAL PROLETARIAN REVOLUTION. That's what it has to be. The people have to have the power: it belongs to the people.
You have this one life. How do you wanna spend it? Apologizing? Regretting? Questioning? Hating yourself? Dieting? Running after people who don't see you? Be brave. Believe in yourself. Do what feels good. Take risks. You have this one life. Make yourself proud.
Ignorance is venomous and it murders the soul, spreading like a virus, running rampant, out of control.
Innocence is destructive and annihilates the spirit, proliferating like a contagion, uncontainable.
What does patience mean? It means to look at the thorn and see the rose, to look at the night and see the dawn. Impatience means to be short sighted as to not be able to see the outcome. The lovers of God never run out of patience, for they know that time is needed for the crescent moon to become full.
The lesson this teaches and which every Afro-American should ponder well, is that a Winchester rifle should have a place of honor in every black home, and it should be used for that protection which the law refuses to give. When the white man who is always the aggressor knows he runs as great a risk of biting the dust every time his Afro-American victim does, he will have greater respect for Afro-American life. The more the Afro-American yields and cringes and begs, the more he has to do so, the more he is insulted, outraged and lynched.
Ida B. Wells
No matter what you do, you'll never run away from you.
No matter what path you take, you can never evade yourself.
A woman has the right to run for election whether she's male or female!
A woman is entitled to vie for office, irrespective of gender.
God gave you your own race to run, stop comparing yourself to other people. They have their race and you have yours. Run hard and don't quit.
'God granted you your own route to pursue, cease contrasting yourself with other individuals. They have their course and you have yours. Persevere and do not give up.'
Trials show us where we are and where we need to grow. Dont run from them, grow from them.
Experiences illustrate our current level and highlight areas of improvement. Don't shy away from them, let them help you progress.
Governments don't want a population capable of critical thinking, they want obedient workers, people just smart enough to run the machines and just dumb enough to passively accept their situation.You have no choice. You have owners. They own you. They own everything. They own all the important land. They own, and control the corporations. They've long since bought, and paid for the Senate, the Congress, the state houses, the city halls, they got the judges in their back pockets and they own all the big media companies, so they control just about all of the news and information you get to hear.
When you run after your thoughts, you are like a dog chasing a stick: every time a stick is thrown, you run after it. Instead, be like a lion who, rather than chasing after the stick, turns to face the thrower. One only throws a stick at a lion once.
Now if you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired morning, noon, and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired. When you were younger the mind could make you dance all night, and the body was never tired... You've always got to make the mind take over and keep going.
George S. Patton
Destiny is that which we are drawn towards and Fate is that which we run into.
Outcome is that which we are driven towards and Circumstance is that which we come across.
Evil is thus a kind of parasite on goodness. If there were no good by which to measure things, evil could not exist. Men sometimes forget this, and say, there is so much evil in the world that there cannot be a God. They are forgetting that, if there were no God, they would have no way of distinguishing evil from goodness. The very concept of evil admits and recognizes a Standard, a Whole, a Rule, an Order. Nobody would say that his automobile was out of order if he did not have a conception of how an automobile ought to run.
Fulton J. Sheen
The real purpose of running isn't to win a race, it's to test the limits of the human heart.
Explore the boundaries of the human spirit through running.
Instead of a river, God often gives us a brook, which may be running today and dried up tomorrow. Why? To teach us not to rest in our blessings, but in the blesser Himself.
Arthur W. Pink
'Rather than a flood, the Lord often gives us a stream, which can be flowing this day and evaporated the next. Why? To instruct us not to rely on our mercies, but in the Giver Himself.'
Humans are allergic to change. They love to say, 'We've always done it this way.' I try to fight that. That's why I have a clock on my wall that runs counter-clockwise.
Humans tend to resist transformation. They take pleasure in reiterating, 'We've done it this way for years.' I strive to defy this. That is why my wall clock runs in a reverse direction.
If you can sit quietly after difficult news; if in financial downturns you remain perfectly calm; if you can see your neighbors travel to fantastic places without a twinge of jealousy; if you can happily eat whatever is put on your plate; you can fall asleep after a day of running around without a drink or a pill; if you can always find contentment just where you are: you are probably a dog.
Men of Oregon, I invite you to become students of your events. Running, one might say, is basically an absurd past-time upon which to be exhausting ourselves. But if you can find meaning, in the kind of running you have to do to stay on this team, chances are you will be able to find meaning in another absurd past-time: life.
We must walk rapidly but not run. We must not be opportunists, nor allow our enthusiasms to make us lose the vision of concrete reality.
We must hasten but not haste. We must not be exploiters, nor permit our passions to lead us to overlook the tangible actuality.
For me, I'm focused on what I want to do. I know what I need to do to be a champion, so I'm working on it.
I am concentrating on accomplishing my ambitions. I am aware of what measures are necessary to be successful, so I'm taking action.
Our grandfathers had to run, run, run. My generation's out of breath. We ain't running no more.
'Our forebears had to flee, flee, flee. My age is exhausted. We won't be running any longer.'
The master maker of the human body did not create you and then run off and leave you masterless. He stayed on the job as innate, as the fellow within, as nerve transmission controlling every function of life, as spirit from above-down, inside-out, expressing, creating, exploring, directing you in every field and phase of experience so that your home is truly the world and the world is your home.
