Believe That You Can Beat Them

"So you have to sit yourself down and tell yourself whatever you have to tell yourself so you start to believe it, that you can beat them, that you WILL beat them. You may even have to lie a bit to yourself at first to get the belief going.  Whatever it takes. And from then on, once you start to believe, you make sure you’re searingly honest with yourself. Are you working as hard as you could? Have you done everything, and I mean everything, you can to get ready for that match? And the answer always has to be yes. There has to be no doubt in your mind. Otherwise, you’re going to lose."

Remain True To What Guides You

"Stand up for what you believe in. Always with conviction, with passion and integrity. Don’t let ideology blind you, but remain true to what guides you. And speak in your own voice, in your own words, in a way that makes sense to you and that could not be from anyone else."

Don’t Live Out of Fear

"It is a constant refrain in scripture: “do not be afraid” – don’t live out of fear. Of course, it is natural that we all sometimes feel afraid. We’re afraid of being alone, of failing, of not coping. But if we live our lives from a place of fear, it is damaging to us, to our relationships, to our communities. One needs to find something that gives a sense of safety, of security, of home. And that comes with accepting we are all known by god and loved by god. If you allow that truth in, it enables you to find freedom from fear. So you can live out not of fear but of hope and gratitude."

Respect The Humanness of Others

"Treat everybody as equal value, irrespective of his or her status or who they are. That’s the thing I want for my children, I want them to always feel that nobody’s better than you and vice versa. That’s what my parents taught me. Never treat anybody as lesser and never accept anyone treating you as lesser. Respect the humanness of the other person."

My Best Advice Is Listen

"My best advice is listen, listen rather than talk. I was never bright in school, but I was a very good listener, and I still am. I have a better life because of it. When I meet people, I’m curious about their story, about how they did what they did. Along the way you meet people smarter than you and they teach you what you don’t already know. So I listen to them, take away my little tit-bits, and off I go …"

My Advice For Success

"I’ve thought about this, and my advice for success comes down to three things: be curious, show up, stay in touch. You have to keep reading, listening, talking, thinking, finding out how people think, what they do. And chase down anything that seems Interesting."

In Touch With Infinite Life and Boundless Wisdom

"Your subconscious processes are always lifeward and constructive. Your subconscious is the builder of your body and maintains all its vital functions. It is on the job twenty-four hours a day and never sleeps. It is always trying to help and preserve you from harm. Your subconscious mind is in touch with Infinite Life and Boundless Wisdom, and its impulses and ideas are always lifeward."

Move Toward Something That You Fear

"When you move toward something that you fear, the fear diminishes in size and influence, becoming smaller and smaller, and eventually it has no influence over your emotions. But if you back away from the fear or avoid the fear-inducing person or situation, it grows and grows and soon takes over your whole life. Everyone has had this experience."

When You Know Your Purpose in Life

"When you know your purpose in life and are growing to reach your maximum potential, you’re well on your way to being a success. But there is one more essential part of the success journey: helping others. Without that aspect, the journey can be a lonely and shallow experience."

Become More Positively Charged

"Your mood and morale become more positively charged when you use high intensity and concentrated self-talks. “I can do it.” “This is awesome.” “I can win.” “We make the best team.” “Everything is possible.” are some of the common examples of positive self-talks."

A Full-Time Believer in Writing Habits

"I’m a full-time believer in writing habits … You may be able to do without them if you have genius but most of us only have talent and this is simply something that has to be assisted all the time by physical and mental habits or it dries up and blows away.… Of course you have to make your habits in this conform to what you can do. I write only about two  hours every day because that’s all the energy I have, but I don’t let anything interfere with those two hours, at the same time and the
same place.

Only With Letting Go Comes Gains

"Letting go is a form of spirit, an enlightenment, a form of wisdom and a state of life.  A popular saying goes, 'Only with letting go comes gains.'  To be able to let go means to be completely understand impermanence, to be able to let go of attachment caused by confused thoughts.  Letting go means to accomplish oneself, its result is life with little obstruction and no unease."

Keep Starting Steps as Small and Manageable

"Many people succeed best when they keep their starting steps as small and manageable as possible; by doing so, they gain the habit of the habit, and the feeling of mastery. They begin their new yoga routine by doing three poses, or start work on a big writing project by drafting a single sentence in a writing session."

People Who Are Passionate

"People who are passionate tend to work harder and invest more in achieving their goals.  Passionate people also read and think more.  Passionate people tend to have an informational edge over others who are not as passionate.  One trick related to passion is that you are not likely to be passionate about something you do not understand.  Often, the level of passion you will have for a topic will grow over time.  The more you know about some topics, the more passionate you will get."

Repeating An Affirmation

"Repeating an affirmation, knowing what you are saying and why you are saying it, leads the mind to that state of consciousness where it accepts that which you state as true. Keep on affirming the truths of life until you get the subconscious reaction that satisfies."
