This is where it begins. A clear vision of your destiny. One day my mentor Mr. Shoaff said, "Jim, if you want to be wealthy and happy, learn this lesson well: Learn to work harder on yourself than you do on your job." Overcoming the Negative The beauty of the soul shines out when a man bears with composure one heavy mischance after another, not because he does not feel them, but because he is a man of high and heroic temper. Aristotle Dont be distracted by criticism. Remember, the only taste of success some people have is when they take a bite out of you. Zig Ziglar When you make a mistake or get ridiculed or rejected, look at mistakes as learning experiences, and ridicule as ignorance. Look at rejection as part of one performance, not as a turn down of the performer. Denis Waitley When you face your fear, most of the time you will discover that it was not really such a big threat after all. We all need some form of deeply rooted, powerful motivationit empowers us to overcome obstacles so we can live our dreams. Les Brown If you spend five minutes complaining, you have just wasted five minutes. If you continue complaining, it wont be long before they haul you out to a financial desert and there let you choke on the dust of your own regret. Jim Rohn Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of the overcoming of it. Helen Keller

Dont water your weeds. Harvey Mackay As long as you think the problem is out there, that very thought is the problem. Stephen Covey Hatred is the most destructive force on earth.

Personal Development
Practice the philosophy of continuous improvement. Get a little bit better every single day. Brian Tracy No one limits your growth but you. If you want to earn more, learn more.

Jim Rohn Make education a continuing, never-ending process. Nido Qubein Meaningful success needs a very personal definition. It is built from the inside out. The success of others has nothing to do with your own success. Denis Waitley

Vision All of the great achievers of the past have been visionary figures; they were men and women who projected into the future. They thought of what could be,

rather than what already was, and then they moved themselves into action, to bring these things into fruition. Bob Proctor Our vision is more obstructed by what we think we know than by our lack of knowledge. Kristen Stendahl In the beginning the dream makes the person, but in the end the person makes the dream. John Maxwell To the dull mind all nature is leaden. To the illumined mind the whole world burns and sparkles with light. Ralph Waldo Emerson Dream lofty dreams, and as you dream, so shall you 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. James Allen Visualize and think about yourself as you would ideally like to be, not just as you are. Brian Tracy The most pathetic person in the world is someone who has sight, but has no vision. Helen Keller Achieving your vision doesnt mean youve reached the end of the line. It simply means that youve come to a new starting place. Nido Qubein Cherish your visions and your dreams. They are the children of your soul, the blueprints of your ultimate achievements. Napoleon Hill Achievers can almost literally taste success because they imagine their goals in such vivid detail. Setbacks only seem to add spice and flavor to the final taste of victory. Denis Waitley

Quotes Zig Ziglar

* Success is not a destination, its a journey. * What you get by reaching your destination is not nearly as important as what you will become by reaching your destination. * Discipline yourself to do the things you need to do when you need to do them, and the day will come when you will be able to do the things you want to do when you want to do them! * Positive thinking will let you use the abilities, training and experience you have. * Other people and things can stop you temporarily. Youre the only one who can do it permanently. * Lack of direction, not lack of time, is the problem. * Youve got to be before you can do, and do before you can have. * The chief cause of failure and unhappiness is trading what you want most for what you want now. * Failure is an event, not a person. Yesterday ended last night. * Character gets you out of bed; commitment moves you to action. Faith, hope, and discipline enable you to follow through to completion. * With integrity you have nothing to fear, since you have nothing to hide. With integrity you will do the right thing, so you will have no guilt. With fear and guilt removed you are free to be and do your best. * If you dont like who you are and where you are, dont worry about it because youre not stuck either with who you are or where you are. You can grow. You can change. You can be more than you are. * When your image improves, your performance improves. * "An honest answer will bring home the fact that the thing holding you back has been that you link more pain or inconvenience with the action than with inaction." Anthony Robins
