Hi Warriors,

I love quotes that inspire me to take action or get me thinking in a way I never thought before.

Here are a few of my favourite quotes:

"An eye for and eye makes the whole world blind"
Ghandhi

"All things, therefore, that you want men to do to you, you also must likewise do to them." (Do unto others as you would want onto you) --Matthew 7:12/The Golden Rule

"Do or do not, there is no try"
Yoda


"Try not to become a man of success but rather to become a man of value."
Einstein


"All you need is love."
John Lennon


Would be good to hear some more gems!

      This is a great one for me as a newbie facing the steep learning curve!

      Calvin Coolidge:

      "Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence.
      Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent.
      Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb.
      Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts.
      Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.
      The slogan 'press on' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race."

      I have three:

      "You don't have to get it right, you just have to get it going." - Mike Litman

      My take: Go with your best, don't wait for perfection. Act now and growth will follow.

      "Discipline weighs ounces, regret weighs tons." Jim Rohn

      My take: The weight of discipline necessary for your success is far lighter than the weight of regret for not having done what you should have done.

      "God has not given you the eyes of looking back." -- from message I heard at church some time ago.

      My take: While this quote sounds a bit odd or off is means that we are to looking forward and toward the new. The past is the past. It's done. Learn the lessons. Forget the details. Grow your future.

      Great thread!

    Mark Twain has some great opinions on success.

    "All you need in this life is ignorance and confidence, and then Success is sure."

    I love quotes, and there's a lot of good ones here. It's been fun reading these.

    This is more than a quote, but a friend gave me this and I have it taped on the wall beside my computer because it's so good. (I do not know who wrote it.)

    ========== Whatever It Takes =============

    I am committed to doing Whatever It Takes.
    The die has been cast.
    I've stepped over the line.
    I am in the achievement zone.
    The decision has been made.
    I look forward, keep moving, forge ahead
    and face each challenge.

    I lead a life of abundance,
    walk by faith, plan immensely,
    dream colorfully, visualize creatively,
    speak positively, give generously,
    while conceiving and achieving giant goals.

    I am true to my values and to my word.
    I focus intently on taking the direct route
    to an exhilarating destination.
    I persist relentlessly. I act right and act now.

    I give up small things now to
    receive awesome things later.
    I go over, under, and through obstacles.
    I love myself as I am and people are
    drawn to me like a magnet.
    I produce excellent results by
    continuously and joyously doing my best.
    I am committed to doing...

    Whatever It Takes!

    Two of the many that I like:

    "When things go wrong, as they sometimes do,
    When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
    When the funds are low, and the debts are high,
    And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
    When care is pressing you down a bit,
    Rest if you must, but don't you quit.

    Life is queer with its twists and turns,
    As every one of us sometimes learns,
    And many a failure turns about,
    when he might have won had he stuck it out;
    So don't give up though the pace seems slow,
    You may succeed with another blow.

    Success is failure turned inside out,
    The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
    You never know how close you are,
    It may be near when it seems so far;
    So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit,
    It's when things seem worst, that
    You Must Not Quit."

      "If someone offers you a gift and you refuse to accept it, to whom does the gift belong?"

      This means that if someone throws anger, malice, spite, or any other negative emotion your way, you don't have to accept it or internalize it. Refuse the "gift," and you won't be affected with that emotion. I read it from a Buddhist text, but I don't remember the author.


      I also like, "Never estimate the height of a mountain until you reach the top." When I was a teen, I had a poster with this quote on my wall.

    "Well-behaved women seldom make history."

    "There is no tomorrow, there is no later; there is only today and now." (Not sure whether I came up with that or it just stuck in my head. Either way, it reminds me that the only way to succeed in something is to do something now!)

    "You miss 100 percent of the shots you never take."

    "Watch your thoughts; they become words.
    Watch your words; they become actions.
    Watch your actions; they become habits.
    Watch your habits; they become character.
    Watch your character; it becomes your destiny."

    Awesome quotes above!

    Here's one I've found particularly meaningful these past few years:
    "Don't let what you don't have keep you from using what you do have."
    - Lou Holtz, in his book "Winning Every Day - The Game Plan For Success"

    Outstanding book, btw. Not to be missed.

    I've often found myself not taking action thinking if only I had this or that it would have been so much easier / better / more profitable, etc, etc. But the reality is, you and I already have quite a bit. What are we doing with what we DO have? Everyone can accomplish quite a lot with the time / knowhow / energy, etc already at their command...

    Best,
    Mike

        "Doing the same things over and over again and expecting a different outcome" = The definition of insanity.

        In other words, if something isn't working or producing results do something different. Change things! Try a new way!

        Its amazing how many people do the same things for months or even years and get 0 results when a simple change could make all the difference.

        Another great quote "If you want to see change YOU must change" which is similar to the above quote in that if you want things to change and get a different outcome you MUST change the way you think and do things.

        Obvious and totally logical yet so many people don't do it.

      "Mediocre people will be intimidated by your success. That is because they live in a world steeped in fear and lack. Many of them are convinced if you are successful, then you have used up some of the success that is available for them. You have stolen some of what they could have had if they had only gone after it. They have no idea there is plenty available for all who choose to participate in the abundance that is available for all. They are convinced there is a limited supply and you have taken more than your share. In fact, you have taken part of theirs." - Larry Winget

      Don't forget that impossible is nothin', your environment is irrelevant
      Just don't let your emotions over power your intelligence.
      Refuse to give up, your mistakes will define you
      Down dictate where you headin', then remind you
      That time keeps tickin', let your mind keep clickin'
      Never stop thinkin', be aware of your decision
      Everywhere the collisions
      And the potholes hiddin' in the road that you travel on your lifelong mission

    In a world where belief is so frequently mistaken for truth, my favorite quotation is...

    "The truth will set you free"

    Some truths include:

    I am as I am.
    You are as you are.
    Life is as it is.
    It is as it is.
    The feelings you actually do physically feel in your body are true.

    Some non-truths include:

    Sentences with the word 'should', 'have to', 'need to' are almost always beliefs, not truths.
    Almost all statements about the future are beliefs not truth.
    Fear, almost always, is a belief we make up ourselves.
    The 'feelings' we call feelings but actually are dubious beliefs we are trying to pass off as truths such as, "I feel like I'm going to fail this exam" (ie using the verb 'to feel' correctly will set you free!)

    Be well.

    Sam

    PS Having just written all this, I am reminded of a saying by David Ure at Landmark Education who said, "A truth is just something you started to believe and then chose to dominate everyone with it." lol - sorry folks!

      Live boldly! You won't get out of life alive!

      Ask yourself daily: How will the person I would like to be do what I'm about to do?

      Simple disciplines repeated over time creates success, simple mistakes repeated over time creates failure.

      Conformity is the opposite of courage

      Procrastination is suicide on an installment plan. It is also the grave in which opportunity is buried.

    Will Smith is probably the most inspirational speaker I've heard...this isn't word for word but:

    "We don't wake up one morning and say I'm going to build the greatest wall the world has ever seen. We wake up and lay one brick perfectly everyday."

    He talks about skill and persistence too...I like it...

    Hmm...

    And "Compounding is the most powerful law in the universe" from Einstein is really cool...

    Just one action or one thought can compound into changing reality....just doing one thing every day...anything small can change your life forever.

    “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?

    Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.

    It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”


    This quote by Marianne Williamson is from her book, "A return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of a course in Miracles". I heard it first in "Coach Carter" the basketball movie.

    Hope it helps,

        And another very meaningful one for us "freelancers" :

        Going to work for a large company is like getting on a train. Are you going sixty miles an hour or is the train going sixty miles an hour and you're just sitting still?

    I read this last year in this forum as well. Until now it gives me motivation and never ever let the past happen again.

    "As long as you have a safety net you act without commitment.
    You'll go back to your old habits once you meet a little resistance.
    You need the samurai's desperateness and his insanity.
    Burn the bridge. Nuke the foundation. Back yourself up against a wall.
    Have an opinion one way or the other, get off the fence and rip it up.
    Cut yourself off so there is no going back.

    Once you're committed the truth will come out.
    You ask about security? What you need is uncertainty.
    What you need is confusion;
    something that forces you to reinvent yourself, or a whip to drive you harder. "

    I came across this brilliant variation on the Serenity Prayer recently in a book by Dr. Richard Bartlett, ("Matrix Energetics" - a very thought provoking read in its own right):

    "Oh Lord, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, and the power to change the things I cannot accept!"

    I really like that!

    " If your hero is someone outside of yourself, then you have given your power away to someone else.

    "all we have to do is look in the mirror and ask ourselves for advice. After all, who knows you better than you? Nobody is more acutely aware of your situation. Nobody is more familiar with every particular senario and potential outcome than you......sometimes we ask other people for advice to reaffirm our own advice. But other people rarely have a stake in the outcome of taking their advice, which makes it less valid than your own point of view"......Are you strong enough to take your own advice?"- Joshua Fields Millburn & Ryan Nicodemus

    "Failure is temporary, giving up makes it permanent"

    "Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm"

    "Humans have the remarkable ability to get exactly what they must have, but there is a difference between a 'must' and 'want.' "

    "To be successful, pursue your goals with unstoppable determination. As long as you know exactly what you want and possess an incessant desire to acquire it, you will prevail."

    "True success comes to those who strive for greatness without surrendering to defeat. You can overcome anything when you possess the unstoppable drive to do so."

    These positive sayings and quotes are all on never giving up. These encouraging quotes are very powerful.

    If you think you will be defeated - you will be. Never allow that negative attitude to creep into your thinking. If you find that you are thinking negative thoughts, take a deep breath and return to a positive thought pattern.
