A smile is the light in your window that tells others that there is a caring, sharing person inside.
Our limitations and success will be based, most often, on your own expectations for ourselves. What the mind dwells upon, the body acts upon.
Success is almost totally dependent upon drive and persistence. The extra energy required to make another effort or try another approach is the secret of winning.
Time is the most precious element of human existence. The successful person knows how to put energy into time and how to draw success from time.
Personal satisfaction is the most important ingredient of success.
Winners take time to relish their work, knowing that scaling the mountain is what makes the view from the top so exhilarating.
Don't be a time manager, be a priority manager. Cut your major goals into bite-sized pieces. Each small priority or requirement on the way to ultimate goal become a mini goal in itself.
Don't dwell on what went wrong. Instead, focus on what to do next. Spend your energies on moving forward toward finding the answer.
The winner's edge is not in a gifted birth, a high IQ, or in talent. The winner's edge is all in the attitude, not aptitude. Attitude is the criterion for success.
Don't ever let economic alone determine your career or how you spend the majority of your time.
Forget about the consequences of failure. Failure is only a temporary change in direction to set you straight for your next success.
Change the changeable, accept the unchangeable, and remove yourself from the unacceptable.
You must welcome change as the rule but not as your ruler.
Relentless, repetitive self talk is what changes our self-image.
Winners have the ability to step back from the canvas of their lives like an artist gaining perspective. They make their lives a work of art - an individual masterpiece.
The winners in life treat their body as if it were a magnificent spacecraft that gives them the finest transportation and endurance for their lives.
It is not in the pursuit of happiness that we find fulfillment, it is in the happiness of pursuit.
You have all the reason in the world to achieve your grandest dreams. Imagination plus innovation equals realization.
Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude.
Never become so much of an expert that you stop gaining expertise. View life as a continuous learning experience.
