Don't Spend Time Worrying

"When we spend time worrying about things that could go wrong, we’re not spending time trying to improve. Which means that worrying about things going wrong increases the chances that they will go wrong."

-- David Niven

No Two Will Grow To Be The Same

"There is no possibility in any man that is not in every man; but if they proceed naturally, no two men will grow into the same thing, or be alike. Every man comes into the world with a predisposition to grow along certain lines, and growth is easier for him along those lines than in any other way."

-- Wallace D. Wattles

Stop Making Excuses

"You will discover that excusitis explains the difference between the person who is going places and the fellow who is barely holding his own. You will find that the more successful the individual, the less inclined he is to make excuses."

-- David Joseph Schwartz, Ph.D.

Dream Bigger Dreams

"You dream bigger dreams. If people don't laugh at you when you share your dreams, then you're not dreaming big enough. Make them laugh. Dream big."

-- Newt Gingrich and Jackie Gingrich Cushman

Accepting Rejection as Part of Life

"Unless you don’t want anything, you’ll have to learn how to love rejection, because it will be coming.” He points to the acting business for ample evidence. “There isn’t an actor you’ve heard of—there isn’t an actor alive—who hasn’t been rejected for more parts than they’ll ever get."

-- David Niven

The Subconscious is Enormous

"The value of the subconscious is enormous: It inspires us; it warns us; it furnishes us with names, facts, and scenes from the storehouse of memory. It directs our thoughts, tastes, and accomplishes tasks so intricate that no conscious mind, even if it had the power, has the capacity."

-- Charles F. Haanel

It is All Right To Feel Scared

"It’s all right to feel scared, as long as that doesn’t stop you acting.  Accept that sometimes you will have to change the way you have always done things."

-- John Bird

Substitute Success Thinking

"Think success, don't think failure. At work, in your home, substitute success thinking for failure thinking. When you face a difficult situation, think, "I'll win," not "I'll probably lose." When you compete with someone else, think, "I'm equal to the best,” not “I'm out-classed." When opportunity appears, think "I can do it," never "I can't." Let the master thought "I-will-succeed" dominate your thinking process."

-- David Joseph Schwartz, Ph.D.

When You Are in Control

"Those who persevere, conversely, recognize that they are ultimately responsible, not just for pursuing their goals, but for setting them. When you are in control, what you do matters, and giving up will not seem very attractive."

-- David Niven

No Matter What Has Happened

"No matter what happens, remind yourself that you are a thoroughly good person. You are a person of character, competence, and intelligence. No matter what has happened, you have the ability to rise to the challenge and deal with the situation."

-— Brian Tracy

Great Personal Power

-- Napoleon Hill

Pursue Activities You Really Care About

"If you spend your time worrying and impatiently awaiting an easy life, you will reduce your motivation for success. If, on the other hand, you pursue activities you really care about, your motivation will increase."

-- David Niven

You Are Better Than You Think

"Remind yourself regularly that you are better than you think you are.  Successful people are not supermen. Success does not require a super-intellect.  Nor is there anything mystical about success. And success isn't based on luck.  Successful people are just ordinary folks who have developed belief in themselves and what they do. Never—yes, never—sell yourself short."

-- David Joseph Schwartz, Ph.D.

Where All Success Lies

"The fact is that all success lies out of your comfort zone. The need to climb over your own personal fence comes when you realise you are not getting what you need inside it."

-- John Bird

Break Up The Big Job

"When you get the picture of what you want, it may cost a few thousand, a few hundred thousand, or a million. That doesn’t really matter. Henry Ford once suggested if you take a big job and break it into small parts you’ll make it easy. So let’s pick a big number. Let’s make it easy."

-- Bob Proctor

Fear of Failure is Powerful

"The fear of failure is powerful. Nobody wants to reveal to others, or to themselves, that they were not capable of doing something they tried to do.  Not trying is, of course, the ultimate failure, for it means you can never make progress toward your goals."

-- David Niven

This Too Shall Pass

"Keep yourself calm by refusing to catastrophic. Refuse to interpret the problem as overwhelmingly negative. Very few things are ever as bad as they seem initially. The four most important words for dealing with any crisis are these: “This too shall pass.”

-— Brian Tracy

Belief is The Thermostat

"Look at it this way. Belief is the thermostat that regulates what we accomplish in life. Study the fellow who is shuffling down there in mediocrity. He believes he is worth little, so he receives little. He believes he can't do big things, and he doesn't. He believes he is unimportant, so everything he does has an unimportant mark."

-- David Joseph Schwartz, Ph.D.

There is a Genius in Every One

"There is a genius in every man and woman, waiting to be brought forth. Every village has its great man or woman; someone to whom all go for advice in time of trouble; some one who is instinctively recognized as being great in wisdom and insight. To such a one the minds of the whole community turn in times of local crisis; he is tacitly recognized as being great."

-- Wallace D. Wattles

Go With What You Have

"It is very rare that the people, money, emotions, skills and even the planets – if you believe in that sort of thing – come together exactly when you want them to. Sometimes you just have to go with what you have."

-- John Bird

Look Into Your Own Talent

"Your big dream will be in an area of your life where you have talent and interest. Talent is an important element because it is unique to you and provides you with the ability to perform better than others in the same area.

-- Newt Gingrich and Jackie Gingrich Cushman

Change The Cause To Change The Effect

"Most people try to change conditions and circumstances by working on those conditions and circumstances. This is a terrible waste of time and effort. They fail to see that their conditions flow from a cause. To remove discord, confusion, lack, and limitation from your life, you must remove the cause. That cause is the way you use your conscious mind, the thoughts and images you encourage in it. Change the cause, and you change the effect. It is just that simple."

-- Joseph Murphy

Staying Calm in a Crisis

"The starting point of staying calm in a crisis is for you to refuse to react automatically and unthinkingly. Instead, take a deep breath to calm your mind and then think carefully about your next words and actions."

-— Brian Tracy

Why You Should Not Wait for The Perfect Time

"Business people who have had success don’t wait for the perfect time to start something.  Sure, they will be thoughtful about having the right skills and people to kick off with, but they also know that if they wait too long, someone else will come along under their nose. So what they do is jump in and solve problems as they come up."

-- John Bird

There is Nothing to Fear

"A knowledge of our ability to consciously radiate health, strength, and harmony will bring us into a realization that there is nothing to fear because we are in touch with Infinite Strength.  This knowledge can be gained only by making a practical application of this information.  We learn by doing—through practice the athlete becomes powerful."

-- Charles F. Haanel

What is Success in Life

"Success in life is not a matter of getting everything. That’s impossible and wouldn’t be much of a joy even if it were possible.  Success is a matter of getting what you need.  Think of success as filling a box. You’ll be finished sooner not just by working harder to fill it but also by choosing a smaller box."

-- David Niven

Keep Money in the Proper Place in your Mind

"It’s very important for you to keep money in the proper place in your mind. Money will not make you a better person, but it can make you more effective. Money will not make you happy although it will make you more comfortable. And always remember this; money will not make you smarter.

-- Bob Proctor

Your Respond To The Inevitable Ups and Downs of Life

"The only part of the challenge-response equation that you can control is your response. All that you can determine is how you are going to respond to the inevitable ups and downs of business and personal life. Your response is under your control."

-— Brian Tracy

Matter Expands When Heated

"Matter expands when heated...This is a universal truth. It is also a universal truth that whatever you impress on your subconscious mind is expressed on the screen of space as condition, experience, and event."

-- Joseph Murphy
