How do you see your Optometry or Ophthalmology career? Are you where you want to be, or do you still have a long way to go? We all spend a lot of time thinking about the things we need to do and perhaps too little thinking about what we want to do. Sometimes taking a step back is necessary to ensure that our daily grind is in line with our long-term goals. If you’re looking for a bit of inspiration as you strive to achieve your goals, consider a few of our favorite quotes that also double as excellent career advice:
“A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.”
“I am not a product of my circumstances. I am a product of my decisions.”
“Success is how high you bounce when you hit bottom.”
General George Patton
“Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t – you’re right.”
“It is never too late to be what you might have been.”
“If you don’t feel it, flee from it. Go where you are celebrated, not merely tolerated.”
Paul F. Davis
“If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door.”
“There is no passion to be found playing small—in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.”
“Whatever you are, be a good one.”
“When the grass looks greener on the other side of the fence, it may be that they take better care of it there.”
