Dr. Rosenberg has brought the simplicity of successful communication into the foreground. No matter what issue you’re facing, his strategies for communicating with others will set you up to win every time.
I think the most important key to quality communication and interaction is developing an interest in the person you`re talking with. Most women know the secret to a quality conversation is to ask quality questions and have a sincere interest in hearing the answers. In fact, the best communicators very often say the least. It`s not the extrovert who dominates the conversation that a client feels most connected with, but rather the individual who shows a real and sincere interest in knowing about the life of the person they`re talking with.
It’s not what’s happening to you now or what has happened in your past that determines who you become. Rather, it’s your decisions about what to focus on, what things mean to you, and what you’re going to do about them that will determine your ultimate destiny…
My personal belief is that the only thing keeping you from freedom is all the beliefs you have about what has to happen before you can be there.
We can change our lives. We can do, have, and be exactly what we wish.
You see, in life, lots of people know what to do, but few people actually do what they know. Knowing is not enough! You must take action.
The secret of success is learning how to use pain and pleasure instead of having pain and pleasure use you. If you do that, you’re in control of your life. If you don’t, life controls you.
It’s not the events of our lives that shape us, but our beliefs as to what those events mean.
Why live an ordinary life, when you can live an extraordinary one.
Cultivate Curiosity. If you really want to grow in your lifetime, learn to be as inquisitive as a child. Curious people are never bored, and for them life becomes an unending study of joy.
Life, never deciding to master anything in particular.
Life is about the moments: Don’t wait for them, create them!
Most people fail in life because they major in minor things.
The quality of your life is dependent upon the quality of the life of your cells. If the bloodstream is filled with waste products, the resulting environment does not promote a strong, vibrant, healthy cell life-nor biochemistry capable of creating a balanced emotional life for an individual.
Nothing has to happen for me to feel good! I feel good because I’m alive! Life is a gift, and I revel in it.
In life you need either inspiration or desperation.
Your life changes the moment you make a new, congruent, and committed decision.
Take control of your consistent emotions and begin to consciously and deliberately reshape your daily experience of life.
One reason so few of us achieve what we truly want is that we never direct our focus; we never concentrate our power. Most people dabble their way through life, never deciding to master anything in particular.
I believe life is constantly testing us for our level of commitment, and life’s greatest rewards are reserved for those who demonstrate a never-ending commitment to act until they achieve. This level of resolve can move mountains, but it must be constant and consistent. As simplistic as this may sound, it is still the common denominator separating those who live their dreams from those who live in regret.
Your life experience will never far exceed the expectations of your peers, because to stay connected to them there is an unconscious contract that says we’re going to be within this range of each other. Now, on the other hand, if for some reason your friends have a higher expectation for life than you do, just to stay on the team you’ve got to raise your standard.
I also remember the moment my life changed, the moment I finally said, “I’ve had it!” I know I’m much more than I’m demonstrating mentally, emotionally, and physically in my life. I made a decision in that moment which was to alter my life forever. I decided to change virtually every aspect of my life. I decided I would never again settle for less that I can be.
Success in life is the result of good judgment. Good judgment is usually the result of experience. Experience is usually the result of bad judgment.
Successful people ask better questions, and as a result, they get better answers.
Identify your problems but give your power and energy to solutions
The secret to success is… is no secret. It’s called work your Ass off and find a way to add more value to people’s lives than anyone else does!
If you want to be successful, find someone who has achieved the results you want and copy what they do and you’ll achieve the same results.
Success comes from taking the initiative and following up… persisting… eloquently expressing the depth of your love. What simple action could you take today to produce a new momentum toward success in your life?
You want to know the biggest illusion about success? That it’s like a pinnacle to be climbed, a thing to be possessed, or a static result to be achieved. If you want to succeed, if you want to achieve all your outcomes, you have to think of success as a process, a way of life, a habit of mind, a strategy for life.
