Begin with the end in mind.
A thousand words will not leave so deep an impression as one deed, be very careful what you say to yourself because someone very important is listening, winners are the ones who really listen to the truth of their hearts. To move the world we must first move ourselves and each new day offers us challenges and opportunities, the chance for a new beginning. Live each ordinary day to the full, success is doing ordinary things extraordinarily well.
The secret of success is consistency of purpose, don't just dream it. Be it! For he has achieved success who has lived well, laughed often and loved much. The key to happiness is having dreams; the key to success is making them come true, all men who have achieved great things have been great dreamers, goals are dreams we convert to plans and take action to fulfil. A dream is a wish your heart makes.
You cannot control what happens to you, but you can control your attitude toward what happens to you, and in that, you will be mastering change rather than allowing it to master you. The best and most beautiful things in this world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart, watch your manner of speech if you wish to develop a peaceful state of mind. Start each day by affirming peaceful, contented and happy attitudes and your days will tend to be pleasant and successful.
There are two ways of spreading light: To be the candle or the mirror that reflects it, the way to choose happiness is to follow what is right and real and the truth for you. Asking the right questions takes as much skill as giving the right answers, believe it can be done. When you believe something can be done, really believe, your mind will find the ways to do it. Believing there is a solution paves the way to a solution. Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars. The secret of success is to be ready when your opportunity comes.
Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy. The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy, if you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude. Commitment is that turning point in your life when you seize the moment and convert it into an opportunity to alter your destiny.
Where love is, there God is also, we look for the good in others, we discover the best in ourselves. Slow down and take the time to really see what is going on around you right now, right where you are. You may be missing something wonderful, we are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then is not an act but a habit. If you can imagine it, you can create it. If you can dream it, you can become it. Recipe for success: Study while others are sleeping; work while others are loafing; prepare while others are playing; and dream while others are wishing.
Hold a picture of yourself long and steadily enough in your mind's eye, and you will be drawn toward it. If you do not conquer self, you will be conquered by self. The ladder of success is never crowded at the top. Success of life depends upon keeping one's mind open to opportunity and seizing it when it comes, to dream anything that you want to dream, that is the beauty of the human mind. To do anything that you want to do, that is the strength of the human will. To trust yourself, to test you limits, that is the courage to succeed. Happiness is not a destination. It is a method of life, meditate. Live purely. Be quiet. Do your work with mastery. Like the moon, come out from behind the clouds! Shine. 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. Cherish your visions and your dreams, as they are the children of your soul, the blueprints of your ultimate achievements.
End your day by privately looking directly into your eyes in the mirror and saying, 'I love you!' Do this for thirty days and watch how you transform. Thoughts and ideas are the source of all wealth, success, material gain, all great discoveries, inventions and achievements. Cherish your visions and your dreams as they are the children of your soul; the blueprints of your ultimate achievements.
It's many a philosophy that not only are you responsible for your life, but doing the best at this moment puts you in the best place for the next moment. What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.
One man with courage is a majority. One step - choosing a goal and sticking to it - changes everything. Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going! Only those who risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go, put your heart, mind, intellect, and soul even to your smallest acts. This is the secret of success. The person who makes a success of living is the one who sees his goal steadily and aims for it unswervingly. That is dedication.
Tomorrow is the most important thing in life. Comes into us at midnight very clean. It's perfect when it arrives and puts itself in our hands. It hopes we've learned something from yesterday. The difference between the impossible and the possible lies in a man's determination. To the world you may be just one person, but to one person you may be the world.
Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless. The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate, hence people know you for what you've done, not for what you plan to do. Dream lofty dreams, and as you dream, so you shall become. Your vision is the promise of what you shall one day be; your ideal is the prophecy of what you shall at last unveil.
Your life is a gift from the Creator. Your gift back to the Creator is what you do with your life, there are two great days in a person's life - the day we are born and the day we discover why. There is only one success, to be able to spend your life in your own way. The whole secret of a successful life is to find out what is one's destined to do, and then do it. It is not what we get. But who we become, what we contribute... that gives meaning to our lives.
Develop an attitude of gratitude, and give thanks for everything that happens to you, knowing that every step forward is a step toward achieving something bigger and better than your current situation. When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, 'I used everything you gave me'.
