It’s not just getting a goal that matters, but the quality of life you experience along the way.
Frustration is a very positive sign. It means that the solution to your problem is within range, but what you’re currently doing isn’t working, and you need to change your approach in order to achieve your goal.
The difference between those who fail to achieve their goals in life and those who succeed is the difference between those who cannot put themselves in a supportive state and those who can consistently put themselves in a state that supports them in their achievements.
The only limit to your impact is your imagination and commitment.
Nothing has any power over me other than that which I give it through my conscious thoughts.
Whatever happens, take responsibility.
No matter how many mistakes you make or how slow you progress, you are still way ahead of everyone who isn’t trying.
If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always gotten.
There’s always a way – if you’re committed.
I’ve come to believe that all my past failure and frustrations were actually laying the foundation for the understandings that have created the new level of living I now enjoy.
Every problem is a gift – without problems we would not grow.
If you are truly flexible and go until… there is really very little you can’t accomplish in your lifetime.
It is your decisions, and not your conditions, that determine your destiny.
Focus on where you want to go, not on what you fear.
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.
There is no such thing as failure. There are only results.
It’s not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives. It’s what we do consistently.
Let fear be a counselor and not a jailer.
If you can’t, then you must!
If you’re going to make a change, you’re going to have to operate from a new belief that says life happens not to me but for me.
We will act consistently with our view of who we truly are, whether that view is accurate or not.
More than anything else, I believe it’s our decisions, not the conditions of our lives that determine our destiny.
When you are grateful, fear disappears and abundance appears.
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.
The only reason we really pursue goals is to cause ourselves to expand and grow. Achieving goals by themselves will never make us happy in the long term; it’s who you
become, as you overcome the obstacles necessary to achieve your goals, that can give you the deepest and most long-lasting sense of fulfilment.
When people are like each other they tend to like each other.
Remember anything you want that’s valuable requires you to break through short-term pain in order to gain long-term pleasure.
People who fail focus on what they will have to go through; people who succeed focus on what it will feel like at the end.
Want to learn to eat a lot? Here it is: Eat a little. That way, you will be around long enough to eat a lot.
If we don’t see a failure as a challenge to modify our approach, but rather as a problem with ourselves, as a personality defect, we will immediately feel overwhelmed.
