Create a Deadline For Your Dream

"Create a deadline once you have a dream that you know is yours, and yours alone. Determine when you will start working to achieve your dream.  When an obstacle comes up, which it will, don't look at it as an end to your dream, but as a detour to be navigated, as a problem to be figured out and tackled."

-- Newt Gingrich

Be Specific with Your Subconscious Mind

"The subconscious mind never sleeps, never rests, any more than does your heart or your blood. It has been found that by plainly stating to the subconscious mind certain specific things to be accomplished, forces are set in operation that lead to the result desired."

-- Charles F. Haanel

How Does The Successful Face Feared

"I have never seen successful people stall out because of some feared, anticipated, or hypothetical outcome. They just do not think that way. They do what they can and then deal with that outcome just like they dealt with the issue in the first place. They get active and face into it all over again. Unless there is some good reason to believe that making a move is not wise, they do something."

-- Henry Cloud

Health of Your Body

"The health of the body as well as the mind is built upon the principle of harmony! The energy known as life begins to disintegrate and death approaches when the organs of the body stop working in harmony."

Listen To Others To Know Your Talent

Why The Need For Accurate Thinking

"Thinking accurately can have the greatest potential consequences of anything you do on an hour-by-hour, day-by-day basis. One good thought, idea, or insight can change your life, especially in the middle of crunch time. That’s why unleashing your creativity is the key to accomplishing extraordinary things for yourself and your family."

Make Your Mind Image Clear

"Make the image clear and clean-cut, hold it firmly in the mind and you will gradually and constantly bring the thing nearer to you. You can be what “you will to be.”"

Avoidance Does Not Help

"Avoidance is really not helping anything, because you still expend the energy and feel the hurt. It may help you avoid the pain of having the tooth pulled, which is time-limited pain, but it does not help you avoid all pain. In fact, you get to endure the problem much longer than if you just faced the hurt of the surgery, dealt with it, and let it go. You could be done by now. Avoidance always prolongs pain, in the end."

-- Henry Cloud

Progress Piece By Piece

"Pursuing your goals is much like putting together a jigsaw puzzle. While you ultimately seek the final outcome, you still have to work piece by piece. Since you will spend most of your time trying to make progress, you must enjoy what you are doing in order to finish. Take joy from the process, and use the small successes to fuel your continued efforts."

-- David Niven

If You Really Want To Change Something

"If you could just do what you’ve been doing for years to get what you want, you would. My point is that, if you want to change something in your life, you have NO CHOICE but to move out of your comfort zone."

It's How You Use Your Brains

"Never underestimate your own intelligence and never overestimate the intelligence of others. Don't sell yourself short. Concentrate on your assets.  Discover your superior talents. Remember, it's not how many brains you've got that matters. Rather, it's how you use your brains that counts. Manage your brains instead of worrying about how much IQ you've got."

-- David Joseph Schwartz, Ph.D.

Our Internal Life Creates Our External One

"The reality of the life we see and live on the outside is one that emerges from the inside, from our hearts, minds, and souls. It is our internal life that creates our external one. So, to find our lives we must find what lies below the surface of our skin. We must look at, listen to, discover, and be mindful of our internal life—of such things as our talents, feelings, desires, and dreams.

-- Henry Cloud

The Power Of Attention

"The power of attention can be more readily understood by comparing it with a sun glass in which the rays of sunlight are focused— they possess no particular strength as long as the glass is moved about and the rays directed from one place to another; but let the glass be held perfectly still and let the rays be focused on one spot for any length of time, the effect will become immediately apparent."

How To Achieve That Goal

"Once you have determined your goal, make a list of the steps that you will have to take to achieve that goal. What are the various things that you must do to get from where you are to where you want to go?"

Demand More Than A Mere Living

"Millions of people struggle all the days of their lives with no stronger motive than that of being able to acquire the necessities of life, such as food, shelter, and clothing. Now and then someone will step out of the ranks of this great army and demand more than a mere living. He or she will be motivated with the strong desire for fortune, and presto! as if by the hand of magic, his or her financial status changes and action begins to turn into cash."

-- Napoleon Hill

Control Your Thoughts

"Every thought therefore is a cause and every condition an effect; for this reason it is absolutely essential that you control your thoughts so as to bring forth only desirable conditions."

Poisons in Your Subconscious Mind

"How often have you wounded yourself by getting angry, fearful, jealous, or vengeful?  These are the poisons that enter your subconscious mind. You were not born with these negative attitudes. Feed your subconscious mind life-giving thoughts and you will wipe out all the negative patterns lodged within it. As you continue to do this, all the past will be wiped out and remembered no more."

-- Joseph Murphy

Wishing for a Thing is not Same as Desiring It

"It must be remembered that wishing for a thing is not the same as desiring it. A wish is merely a passive form of desire.  Only out of intense desire will impelling forces of action grow, driving one to build plans and put those plans to work. Most people never advance beyond the “wishing” stage."

-- Napoleon Hill

How To Get Greater Opportunity

"You have to embrace the uncertainty of outcomes and realize that chance can play for you or against you on any given day. But the more you try, the greater your opportunity to benefit from a lucky outcome."

-- David Niven

The Real Antidote To Worry

"The only real antidote to worry is purposeful action in the direction of your goals. Instead of becoming upset or doubting yourself and your abilities, decide to take action, any action, to resolve the difficulty and get yourself through the crunch. Remind yourself that problems come not to obstruct, but to instruct."

-— Brian Tracy

Subconscious Mind Does Not Argue

"The subconscious mind cannot argue controversially. Hence, if it has accepted wrong suggestions, the sure method of overcoming them is by the use of a strong counter suggestion, frequently repeated, which the mind must accept, thus eventually forming new and healthy habits of thought and life, for the subconscious mind is the seat of Habit."

-- Charles F. Haanel

The Very Successful and The Very Unsuccessful

"The difference in the very successful and the very unsuccessful finally reduced to differences in attitudes, or difference in thought-management. The top group worried less, was more enthusiastic, had a sincere liking for people."

-- David Joseph Schwartz, Ph.D.

Avoiding Problems is Not Good For Us

"It is comforting to think about everything that goes right as being a product of our personal abilities and everything that goes wrong as being the fault of others. But it is not useful to us because it will not help us produce future successes.

-- David Niven

You Need To Start Anyway

"There is often no right time to start something but you need to start anyway.  As long as you are aware there are good and bad sides to everything, it is not foolish to jump into something. Just be prepared."

-- John Bird

Only You Can Create Your Dreams

"Part of the challenge is for you to determine which dreams are meant for you, and you alone.  While others may influence your dreams, however, only you can create them.  After all, only you know what really makes you excited and ready to work hard."

-- Newt Gingrich and Jackie Gingrich Cushman

The Right Attitude and One Arm

"An amputee friend is an excellent golfer. One day I asked him how he had been able to develop such a near-perfect style with just one arm. I mentioned that most golfers with two arms can't do nearly as well. His reply says a lot: "Well, it's my experience," he said, "that the right attitude and one arm will beat the wrong attitude and two arms every time." The right attitude and one arm will beat the wrong attitude and two arms every time. Think about that for a while. It holds true not only on the golf course but in every facet of life."

-- David Joseph Schwartz, Ph.D.

A Test of Your Character and Intelligence

"Tell yourself that you can do anything that you put your mind to. Tell yourself that there is no problem that you cannot solve. Look upon solving the problem or resolving the crisis as a test of your character and intelligence. See it as a challenge, something that has been sent to help you to grow in knowledge and wisdom."

Trust Your Own Judgement

"Don’t aim to be perfect straight away.  Start, and improve as you go along. Be prepared to trust your own judgement because that is all you have."
