Every Person of Learning is Finally Themselves

Be Present in This Moment

"WE ALL MAKE SACRIFICES. The work hours can be brutal. But none of us wants to look back in 10 to 20 years and say, “I wish I had paid attention to the little things — I could have spent more time with people who mattered.” Sure, it’s easy to get distracted, but there comes a point when attempting to do it all might cause us to miss it all.Never forget to be present in the moment."

You Are Either Attracting or Repelling Good

Realize Who You Are

"It is neither an accomplishment nor a fault to acknowledge that some people can speak before large audiences and be exhilarated by the experience while others would be petrified.

Our Thought The Dynamic Energy

"The ability of the individual to think is his ability to act on the Universal and bring it into manifestation. Human consciousness consists only in the ability of man to think. Walker says, “Mind in itself is believed to be a subtle form of static energy, from which arises the activities called ‘thought,’ which is the dynamic phase of mind. Mind is static energy, thought is dynamic energy—the two phases of the same thing.” Thought is therefore the vibratory force formed by converting static mind into dynamic mind."

Those Thoughts That Receive Our Attention

"We attract not only what we love, but also what we fear.

Press On Has Solved Many Problems

"The slogan ‘Press on’ has solved and will solve the problems of the human race.

-- Barbara Rose

The source is within you And this whole world is springing up from it."

-- W. Clement Stone

The Power To Think

"The greatest and most marvelous power which this “I” has been given is the power to think, but few people know how to think constructively—or correctly—so consequently they achieve only indifferent results. Most people allow their thoughts to dwell on selfish purposes, the inevitable result of an infantile mind. When a mind becomes mature, it understands that the germ of defeat is in every selfish thought.

-- Charles F. Haanel
