Your Real Wealth Lies Within Your Brain

"Do you not understand that your real wealth lies within your brain and your capacity to serve, and not in the vaults of bank?  When you face a situation that is embrassing and you feel old man worry laying his chilly hands upon you, just remember that he can scare you only with your consent, not without it.  It is within your power to shield your heart from the sharp blows of worry, fear and despair, and you can do this  by keeping in mind the fact that ULTIMATELY NOTHING MATTERS."

-- Napoleon Hill

Put Adversity To The Test

"Put adversity to the test: Why are you here? To show me how committed I am? To test my ability to endure? To show me not to take it all for granted? To ask me what’s important? If you have no idea what gifts adversity is bringing, tell yourself this: These heightened times of adversity are fodder for the best growth of my life, and I will be able to look back and know why this challenge hit."

Don't Focus on What You Did Wrong

"Don’t focus on what you did wrong or what you may have failed to do; focus on the fact that you have made it through some tough times. You’re still alive! And you have skills, talents, and abilities that you may not have even tapped yet. There is still a good plan to be had for your life; it’s up to you to find and fulfill it."

What You Do Off The Job Plays A Major Role

Cannot Let Your Past Rule Yur Decisions

"We made choices based on our past failures or successes. While this method has some merit, we cannot let our past completely rule our decisions. We can’t operate from a place of fear, unable to move forward because we’re afraid of failing once again."

-- Shannon Kaiser

Think of Five Things You Are Grateful For

"Forcing yourself to think of five things for which you are grateful turns your attention from what you lack to what you have. Your brain kicks into gear, looking for things to be grateful for, rather than complaining about what you don’t have or what others aren’t doing for you."

-- Rhonda Sciortino

How You’ll Feel Alive Again

-- Brendon Burchard

What Really Matters in Your Life

"Sure work is important. It pays the bills. It provides security. It allays fear of the future. It buys us food and shelter and lots of good stuff. But what really matters? Life matters. Living matters. Family matters. Love and devotion matter."

-- Bob Litwin

Confidence is Often The Missing Link

"It’s not a matter of what things look like on the outside—the key is to recognize what you have working on the inside. Confidence is often the missing link to seeing yourself accomplish the impossible."

Regardless of The Challenges You Face

"Regardless of the challenges you face in your life, make the determination to refuse anyone the power to direct your life. Don’t give anyone, including well-meaning medical professionals, the opportunity to give you a death sentence."

Grudges Harm Those Who Harbor Them

"Grudges probably harm those who harbor them more than those at whom they are directed. So if only for your own sake, avoid registering grudges, and if you have a grudge list, tear it up!"

Everything Happens For A Reason

"Everything that happens, happens for a reason. What looks like a boulder on the path, interfering with a steady journey is there to move you to the next place. What looks like a detour is often a golden nugget on your path. Look for them. Save them. They are, when you look back, what makes the journey to your New Story even sweeter."

-- Bob Litwin

Comparison Robs Our Joy

"Comparison robs our joy. This habit hinders our happiness more often than any other self-sabotaging technique. Comparison is sneaky, cunning, and manipulative. It will walk around with us and rule our thoughts if we are not careful."

-- Rhonda Sciortino
