There are many of them like:
Eye for eye, tooth for tooth.
Ignorance is bliss.
Roll with the punches.
Read between the lines.
Don't put the cart before the horse.
Always play ball with others.
Don't pass the buck.
Always be on the ball.
Give an olive branch.
Knuckle down at all times.
No news is good news.

Cut out all the mischief.
Don't make a mountain out of a molehill.
Don't be a loose cannon.
Keep your shirt on.
It ain't over till the fat lady sings.
If the shoe fits, wear it.
Every cloud has a silver lining.
Don't eat your words.
Don't look a gift horse in the mouth.
Don't count your chickens before they hatch.
Don't let the cat out of the bag.
Don't burn the candle at both ends.
Break the ice at all times.
Don't bite off more than you can chew.
Don't bark up the wrong tree.
Stop beating around the bush.
Don't be a lame duck.
Don't be a smart aleck.
Don't be a stick in the mud.
Don't stick your neck out.
Strike while the iron is hot.
Think outside the box.
Turn over a new leaf if you did wrong.
Two heads are better than one.
What goes around comes around.
Don't be the whipping boy.

You can't lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink.

I realize I tell myself "I'm going to work harder, than I ever did before." I tell myself this every time I need to study a test, or do any big projects. It gets me pumped up, every time.
Whatever you tell yourself, just make sure it's positive. :)

& in regards to some other posts, about treating others as you want to be treated -- that's not always the best. There are cultural differences and different values that people live by. Keep that in mind. ;)
