What is it in your life you would most like to change?

The greatest discovery of my generation is that a person can change his future by merely changing his attitude.

Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude.

Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of human freedoms—to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.

Rise Above It

One of the most common reactions to frustration is aggression. Let someone drive in front of us and block our progress while we are rushing to an appointment, and our thin veneer of civilized behavior peels off with a blast on the horn or an angry shout.

While aggression may be a direct and common reaction to frustration, the reaction itself often leads to additional sources of frustration, especially if it is another person who is the target of the aggression. The other person may hit back.

Our environment, the world in which we live and work,
is a mirror of our attitudes and expectations.

Your living is determined not so much by what life
brings to you as by the attitude you bring to life;
not so much by what happens to you as by
the way your mind looks at what happens.

Our Gift

Nature gave a wonderful gift to most of her little creatures – a gift we call “protective coloring” – so that the deer blends into the forest, the fish into the stream, and the bird into the tree. But from one notable creature was this gift withheld. The human creature stands out like a sore thumb on any sort of terrain.

I believe this is because the human was given a much greater gift: You and I have a godlike power to make our surroundings change to fit us.

Wake Up

Winners are wide awake; they are alive. Every day you will find them in the marketplace making things happen. The real winners are not just dreamers. Although they have dreams, they are doers: They realize their dreams. They are the bell ringers, always attempting to wake others up to the numerous opportunities life offers.

Thought Plus Action

Successful living consists of knowing and being. When the two are separated, there is nothing but frustration and failure.

To know all about love without loving can be disastrous. In the same way, knowing all about the right way to live and not acting on what you know, on a daily basis, can prove to be very destructive for anyone.
