1. I’ve come to believe that all my past failure and frustration were actually laying the foundation for the understandings that have created the new level of living I now enjoy.
  2. 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.
  3. A real decision is measured by the fact that you’ve taken a new action. If there’s no action, you haven’t truly decided.
  4. If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always gotten.
  5. It is in your moments of decision that your destiny is shaped.
  6. Beliefs have the power to create and the power to destroy. Human beings have the awesome ability to take any experience of their lives and create a meaning that disempowers them or one that can literally save their lives.
  7. 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.
  8. We can change our lives. We can do, have, and be exactly what we wish.
  9. 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.
  10. Life is a gift, and it offers us the privilege, opportunity, and responsibility to give something back by becoming more.
  11. Setting goals is the first step in turning the invisible into the visible.
  12. I challenge you to make your life a masterpiece. I challenge you to join the ranks of those people who live what they teach, who walk their talk.
  13. Only those who have learned the power of sincere and selfless contribution experience life’s deepest joy: true fulfillment.
  14. Successful people ask better questions, and as a result, they get better answers.
  15. To effectively communicate, we must realize that we are all different in the way we perceive the world and use this understanding as a guide to our communication with others.
  16. 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?
  17. Remember, a real decision is measured by the fact that you’ve taken new action. If there’s no action, you haven’t truly decided.
  18. It is not what we get. But who we become, what we contribute… that gives meaning to our lives.
  19. For changes to be of any true value, they’ve got to be lasting and consistent.
  20. Using the power of decision gives you the capacity to get past any excuse to change any and every part of your life in an instant.
  21. My definition of success is to live your life in a way that causes you to feel a ton of pleasure and very little pain – and because of your lifestyle, have the people around you feel a lot more pleasure than they do pain.
  22. People are not lazy. They simply have impotent goals – that is, goals that do not inspire them.
  23. In essence, if we want to direct our lives, we must take control of our consistent actions. It’s not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives, but what we do consistently.
  24. Once you have mastered time, you will understand how true it is that most people overestimate what they can accomplish in a year – and underestimate what they can achieve in a decade!
  25. The higher your energy level, the more efficient your body. The more efficient your body, the better you feel and the more you will use your talent to produce outstanding results.
  26. What we can or cannot do, what we consider possible or impossible, is rarely a function of our true capability. It is more likely a function of our beliefs about who we are.
  27. Stay committed to your decisions, but stay flexible in your approach.
  28. The truth is that we can learn to condition our minds, bodies, and emotions to link pain or pleasure to whatever we choose. By changing what we link pain and pleasure to, we will instantly change our behaviors.
  29. Most people have no idea of the giant capacity we can immediately command when we focus all of our resources on mastering a single area of our lives.
  30. It’s not the events of our lives that shape us, but our beliefs as to what those events mean.

  38. In life you need either inspiration or desperation.
  39. You see, it’s never the environment; it’s never the events of our lives, but the meaning we attach to the events – how we interpret them – that shapes who we are today and who we’ll become tomorrow.
  40. Passion is the genesis of genius.
  41. There’s always a way – if you’re committed.
  42. It’s not knowing what to do, it’s doing what you know.
  43. The way we communicate with others and with ourselves ultimately determines the quality of our lives.

  52. Most people never decide firmly that they want to win – so they don’t
  53. The past does not equal the future unless you live there.
  54. Live life fully while you’re here. Experience everything. Take care of yourself and your friends. Have fun, be crazy, be weird. Go out and screw up! You’re going to anyway, so you might as well enjoy the process. Take the opportunity to learn from your mistakes: find the cause of your problem and eliminate it. Don’t try to be perfect; just be an excellent example of being human.
  55. If you can’t you must, and if you must you can.
  56.  When you are grateful, fear disappears and abundance appears.
  57. Every problem is a gift – without problems we would not grow.
  58.  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
  59. 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
  60. sound, it is still the common denominator separating those who live their dreams from those who live in regret.
  61. It is your decisions, and not your conditions, that determine your destiny.
  62. Focus on where you want to go, not on what you fear.

  64. Why live an ordinary life, when you can live an extraordinary one.
  65. Identify your problems but give your power and energy to solutions
  66. Some of the biggest challenges in relationships come from the fact that most people enter a relationship in order to get something: they’re trying to find someone who’s going to make them feel good. In reality, the only way a relationship will last is if you see your relationship as a place that you go to give, and not a place that you go to take.
  67. 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.
  68. Its not about the goal. Its about growing to become the person that can accomplish that goal.
  69. It’s not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives. It’s what we do consistently.
  70. You can’t have a plan for your day, ‘til you have a plan for your life.
  71.  We’ve all heard about people who’ve exploded beyond the limitations of their conditions to become examples of the unlimited power of the human spirit.
  72. You and I can make our lives one of these legendary inspirations, as well, simply by having courage and the awareness that we can control whatever happens in our lives. Although we cannot always control the events in our lives, we can always control our response to them, and the actions we take as a result.
  73. If there’s anything you’re not happy about–in your relationships, in your health, in your career–make a decision right now about how you’re going to change it immediately.
  74.  The quality of your life is in direct proportion to the quality of your relationships.

  76. Success is buried on the other side of rejection.
  77. We are the only beings on the planet who lead such rich internal lives that it’s not the events that matter most to us, but rather, it’s how we interpret those events that will determine how we think about ourselves and how we will act in the future.

  83.  Focus equals feeling.

  85. Every man dies. Not every man lives.
  86. Many people say, “Well, I’d love to make a decision like that, but I’m not sure how I could change my life.” They’re paralyzed by the fear that they don’t know exactly how to turn their dreams into reality. And as a result, they never make the decisions that could make their lives into the masterpieces they deserve to be. I’m here to tell you that it’s not important initially to know how you’re going to create a result. What’s important is to decide you will find a way, no matter what.
  87. If you don’t set a baseline standard for what you’ll accept in life, you’ll find it’s easy to slip into behaviours and attitudes or a quality of life that’s far below what you deserve.
  88.  There are no real successes without rejection. The more rejection you get, the better you are, the more you’ve learned, the closer you are to your outcome… If you can handle rejection, you’ll learn to get everything you want.
  89. Our beliefs about what we are and what we can be, precisely determine what we will be.
  90. You are now at a crossroads. This is your opportunity to make the most important decision you will ever make. Forget your past. Who are you now? Who have you decided you really are now? Don’t think about who you have been. Who are you now? Who have you decided to become? Make this decision consciously. Make it carefully. Make it powerfully. ~
  91. The quality of your life is the quality of your relationships.
