Picture yourself in your minds eye as having already achieved this goal. See yourself doing the things you'll be doing when you've reached your goal.
— Earl Nightingale
You can measure opportunity with the same yardstick that measures the risk involved. They go together.
We all walk in the dark and each of us must learn to turn on his or her own light.
Any person who contributes to prosperity must prosper in turn.
Everything begins with an idea.
What's going on in the inside shows on the outside.
The more intensely we feel about an idea or a goal, the more assuredly the idea, buried deep in our subconscious, will direct us along the path to its fulfillment.
Wherever there is danger, there lurks opportunity; whenever there is opportunity, there lurks danger. The two are inseparable. They go together.
Get into a line that you will find to be a deep personal interest, something you really enjoy spending twelve to fifteen hours a day working at, and the rest of the time thinking about.
People are where they are because that is exactly where they really want to be - whether they will admit that or not.
We are at our very best, and we are happiest, when we are fully engaged in work we enjoy on the journey toward the goal we've established for ourselves. It gives meaning to our time off and comfort to our sleep. It makes everything else in life so wonderful, so worthwhile.
A great attitude does much more than turn on the lights in our worlds; it seems to magically connect us to all sorts of serendipitous opportunities that were somehow absent before the change.
Don't let the fear of the time it will take to accomplish something stand in the way of your doing it. The time will pass anyway; we might just as well put that passing time to the best possible use.
Whatever we plant in our subconscious mind and nourish with repetition and emotion will one day become a reality.
Our environment, the world in which we live and work, is a mirror of our attitudes and expectations.
Success is the progressive realization of a worthy goal or ideal.
You'll find boredom where there is the absence of a good idea.
Excellence always sells.
The big thing is that you know what you want.
Ideas are elusive, slippery things. Best to keep a pad of paper and a pencil at your bedside, so you can stab them during the night before they get away.
Your world is a living expression of how you are using and have used your mind.
The biggest mistake that you can make is to believe that you are working for somebody else. Job security is gone. The driving force of a career must come from the individual. Remember: Jobs are owned by the company, you own your career!
We can let circumstances rule us, or we can take charge and rule our lives from within.
Our attitude towards others determines their attitude towards us.
Executive ability is deciding quickly and getting somebody else to do the work.
All you need is the plan, the road map, and the courage to press on to your destination.
We will receive not what we idly wish for but what we justly earn. Our rewards will always be in exact proportion to our service.
All you have to do is know where you're going. The answers will come to you of their own accord.
People with goals succeed because they know where they're going.
Everything that's really worthwhile in life comes to us.
We tend to live up to our expectations.
Your problem is to bridge the gap which exists between where you are now and the goal you intend to reach.
You are, at this moment, standing, right in the middle of your own 'acres of diamonds.'
The mind moves in the direction of our currently dominant thoughts.
Everything in the world we want to do or get done, we must do with and through people.
Creativity is a natural extension of our enthusiasm.
Whenever we're afraid, it's because we don't know enough. If we understood enough, we would never be afraid.
Always keep that happy attitude. Pretend that you are holding a beautiful fragrant bouquet.
Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don't wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future. Think how really precious is the time you have to spend, whether it's at work or with your family. Every minute should be enjoyed and savored.
