to hell with circumstances; I create opportunities. – Bruce Lee
Be remarkable. Boring is invisible.
Connect, create meaning, make a difference, matter, be missed.
If you can get people to accept and embrace and adore and cherish your ideas, you win. You win financially, you gain power and you change the world in which we live.”
Today knowledge has power. It controls access to opportunity and advancement.
You were born to win, but to be a winner, you must plan to win, prepare to win, and expect to win.
Do it, and then you will feel motivated to do it.
Little men with little minds and little imaginations go through life in little ruts, smugly resisting all changes which would jar their little worlds.
When we do more than we are paid to do, eventually we will be paid more for what we do
It’s not what happens to you that determines how far you will go in life; it is how you handle what happens to you.
It’s not what you’ve got, it’s what you use that makes a difference.
Winning is not everything, but the effort to win is.
Motivation gets you going and habit gets you there. Make motivation a habit and you will get there more quickly and have more fun on the trip.
You are what you are and where you are because of what has gone into your mind. You can change what you are and where you are by changing what goes into your mind.
If you don’t like who you are and where you are, don’t worry about it because you’re not stuck either with who you are or where you are. You can grow. You can change. You can be more than you are.
A real decision is measured by the fact that you’ve taken a new action. If there’s no action, you haven’t truly decided.
It is in your moments of decision that your destiny is shaped.
It is not what we get. But who we become, what we contribute… that gives meaning to our lives.
I believe life is constantly testing us for our level of commitment, and life’s greatest rewards are reserved for those who demonstrate a never-ending commitment to act until they achieve.
If you can’t, you must. If you must, you can
Any time you sincerely want to make a change, the first thing you must do is to raise your standards.
People are not lazy. They simply have impotent goals – that is, goals that do not inspire them.
I challenge you to make your life a masterpiece. I challenge you to join the ranks of those people who live what they teach, who walk their talk.
Beliefs have the power to create and the power to destroy. Human beings have the awesome ability to take any experience of their lives and create a meaning that disempowers them or one that can literally save their lives.
You see, it’s never the environment; it’s never the events of our lives, but the meaning we attach to the events … how we interpret them … that shapes who we are today and who we’ll become tomorrow
Nothing has any power over me other than that which I give it through my conscious thoughts.
The only limit to your impact is your imagination and commitment.
Be a light, not a judge. Be a model, not a critic
The key is not to prioritize what’s on your schedule, but to schedule your priorities.
Courage isn’t absent of fear, it is the awareness that something else is important
Dependent people need others to get what they want. Independent people can get what they want through their own efforts. Interdependent people combine their own efforts with the efforts of others to achieve their greatest success.
Every human has four endowments- self awareness, conscience, independent will and creative imagination. These give us the ultimate human freedom… The power to choose, to respond, to change.The undisciplined are slaves to moods, appetites and passions.We are responsible for our own lives.
We are the creative force of our life, and through our own decisions rather than our conditions, if we carefully learn to do certain things, we can accomplish those goals.
When we succumb to believing that we are victims of our circumstances and yield to the plight of determinism, we lose hope, we lose drive, and we settle into resignation and stagnation.
I am personally convinced that one person can be a change catalyst, a ‘transformer’ in any situation, any organization. Such an individual is yeast that can leaven an entire loaf. It requires vision, initiative, patience, respect, persistence, courage, and faith to be a transforming leader.
Until a person can say deeply and honestly, ‘I am what I am today because of the choices I made yesterday,’ that person cannot say, ‘I choose otherwise’.
To begin with the end in mind means to start with a clear understanding of your destination. It means to know where you’re going so that you better understand where you are now and so that the steps you take are always in the right direction
If you want change, you have to make it. If we want progress we have to drive it. — Susan Rice
It doesn’t matter where you are, you are nowhere compared to where you can go. — Bob Proctor
Obstacles can’t stop you. Problems can’t stop you. Most of all, other people can’t stop you. Only you can stop you.
Only I can change my life. No one can do it for me.
Someone was hurt before you, wronged before you, hungry before you, frightened before you, beaten before you, humiliated before you, raped before you… yet, someone survived… You can do anything you choose to do.
The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one
The mind has exactly the same power as the hands; not merely to grasp the world, but to change it.
If you spend too much time thinking about a thing, you’ll never get it done. Make at least one definite move daily toward your goal.
Life is wide, limitless. There is no border, no frontier.
Choose the positive. You have choice, you are master of your attitude, choose the positive, the constructive. Optimism is a faith that leads to success.
Endurance is lost rapidly if one ceases to work at its maximum.
To become different from what we are, we must have some awareness of what we are.
t is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell.
