ALWAYS TRY TO THINK AHEAD

When you think ahead of any approaching action you’ll always have the advantage. You’ll be the winner.

Keeping a little ahead of conditions is one of the secrets of business.

The time to repair your roof is when the sun is shining. Try to do things before they need to be done.

Let your advance worrying become advance thinking and planning. Position yourself ahead of time in the best place for you.

When you do what is necessary, all the odds are in your favor. Do the next thing.

YOUR HABITS WILL PUSH YOU TO SUCCESS

First, you make your habits, and then your habits make you.
Break those habits that can break you. Adopt those practices that will become the new habits that will help you achieve the success you desire.

Your habits are a form of exercise. The harder you work at something, the harder it is to quit. The easier it is to do, the harder it is to change.

Your habits are either the best of servants or the worst of masters. You are what you repeatedly do.

SUCCESS IS A STATE OF MIND

If you truly want to be successful, start thinking of yourself as successful.

The only thing that stands between you and what you want from life, is simply the will to try it and the faith to believe that it is possible. There is nothing on earth that you can’t have, once you mentally accept the fact that you can have it.

The feeling must come first. If you actually feel successful, if you have a deep inner conviction that you’ll always have all that you need, it will be so.

Whatever your mind can conceive and believe in, your mind can help you achieve.

DO THE NEXT THING

You’ll gain the advantage in any situation through one medium: time

DESIRE IS THE STARTING POINT OF SUCCESS

The first thing that will contribute to reaching your goal is that you simply want to reach it badly enough. You must learn how to desire with sufficient intensity to be successful.

If you have the desire you have the power to attain success. You can really have anything you want in life if you go after it. But you have to want it.

As a drowning soul desires air, as a shipwrecked person craves fresh water, so must you feel that intense, eager, insistent, demanding, ravenous desire for your success.

Your desire for success must be so strong within you that it becomes the very breath of your life. It must be your first thought when you wake up, and your last thought when you go to bed at night.

You can have anything you want if you go after it with intensity.

YOUR SUCCESS IS CLOSER THAN YOU THINK

Every situation, properly perceived, becomes an opportunity. But you have to act on them if you’re going to be successful.

Distant pastures always look greener than those close at hand, but real opportunities are right where you are.

You must simply take advantage of them when they appear. You can start where you are at any time.

Success is all around you. It’s not in your environment, it’s not in luck or chance, or with the help of others.

Success is in yourself alone.

You don’t need more strength or more ability or greater opportunity. What you need is to use what you have.

Learn to seize good fortune, for it is always around you.

You must go to success, it doesn’t come to you.

Open your own doors to opportunity.

PERSISTENCE IS REQUIRED TO REACH A GOAL

“Keep trying” is the rule that must be followed to be successful at anything.
Your success will always be connected with your actions.

Just keep moving towards your goal. You’ll make mistakes but don’t ever quit. You may even have to hang on

after others have let go.

Persistence means taking pains to overcome every obstacle,to do all that’s necessary to reach your goal.

In the end, the only people who fail are those that do not try.

All great achievement takes time.

MAKE CHANGE A POSITIVE PART OF YOUR LIFE

You must avoid breaking when things don’t go your way.  You’ll always be secure to the degree that you accept change.

True security comes from being able to bend your insecurities.

Recognize and accept that change will inevitably take place.  You’ll become secure, not by standing still, but by growing, moving, and staying energized.

Be secure in the knowledge that you can deal with anything that happens to you.

Have the courage to bet on your ideas.  Take some calculated risks and act on your dreams.

There is no permanent security on this earth, there is the only opportunity.

YOU DO NOT EXIST FOR YOURSELF

Your success depends on the support of other people.
The only hurdle between you and what you want to be is the support of others.

Put yourself in another’s place, and you’ll know why they think and do certain things. You can succeed fastest by helping others to succeed.

Always think in terms of what the other person wants. You’ll get everything in life that you want if you’ll help enough other people get what they want. Doing things for others always pays dividends.

Personal relationships are the fertile soil from which all advancement, all success, all achievement in real life grows.

You’re not an isolated island. You’re a piece of the planet, a piece of the universe.

When you help someone’s boat across a river, you’ll find your own boat has reached the shore too.

FREEDOM MEANS RESPONSIBILITY

Freedom is the right to live as you wish.
If you wish to free yourself from enslavement, you must chose freedom and the responsibility it entails.

There is a price for every freedom, something to be given up for every liberty.

Its up to you to weigh the price you must pay for each of your freedoms. And everything you want has a price.

Freedom is the opportunity to make decisions. Its the capacity to take a hand in your own development.

Freedom is the right to choose. Its the right to create for yourself the alternatives of choice.

No one is free who is not master of himself.

You are free to do whatever you would like. You need only face the consequences of your actions.

ALL PERSONAL GROWTH INVOLVES CHANGE

Personal growth is the process of responding positively to change. It involves risk as you step from the known into the unknown.

All your growth will depend on your activity. Your strength and growth will come only through continuous effort and struggle. There will be no development without effort.

Trouble is the common denominator of living. It is the great equalizer of life. Your trials, your sorrows, and your grief will develop you.

When good or bad fortune comes your way, you must give it meaning and transform it into something of value.

What happens to you is not as important as your reaction to what is happening.

Life is made up of a series of experiences. Each one will make you

stronger, even though it may be hard for you to realize it at the time.

Life is your classroom in which you’re being tested, tried, and passed.

Always try to stay in the midst of life and activity. Don’t isolate

yourself from the action. Your character develops itself in the stream of

life.

The setbacks and hardships you endure actually help you in your march

forward to success. The world was built to develop your character.

Life expects you to make progress in reasonable time. That’s why those

elementary school chairs are so small.

ACCEPT CHANGE WITH A SMILE

Sooner or later you’ll experience a crisis in your life, and how you meet it will determine your future happiness and success.
Since the beginning of time, everyone has been called upon to meet such a crisis.

A closer look will show you that most “crisis situations” are opportunities to either advance or stay where you are.

In fact, most changes in your life will take place out of either “inspiration” or “desperation.”

Whatever comes your way, give it meaning and transform it into something of value. Your personal growth is the process of responding positively to change. A precious stone cannot be polished without friction, nor humanity perfected without trials.

WORK IS REWARD NOT PUNISHMENT

Your success in any occupation depends on your enjoyment.
Loving your work makes the difference. If you enjoy what you do, you’ll be successful.

If you don’t enjoy what you do, you won’t be successful.

Your chances for success are directly proportional to the degree of pleasure you derive from what you do.

If you have a job you hate, face the fact squarely and get out. You’ll never achieve real success unless you like what you are doing.

Success in its highest and noblest form calls for peace of mind, enjoyment, and happiness which comes only when you find the work that you like best.

You don’t pay the price for success. You enjoy the price for success.

Work is love made visible.

YOU ARE WHAT YOU REPEATEDLY DO

First, you make your habits, and then your habits make you. You become a slave to your constantly repeated acts. What at first you chose, at last, compels.
Your thoughts lead you to a purpose. Your purpose moves you to take action. Your actions form your habits.

Your habits determine your character, and your character fixes your destiny.

Your habits are either the best of servants or the worst of masters.

Once in motion, a pattern tends to stay in motion.
