Nothing can withstand the power of the human will if it is willing to stake its very existence to the extent of its purpose.
The secret of success is constancy to purpose.
Courage is the greatest of all the virtues. Because if you haven't courage, you may not have an opportunity to use any of the others.
While Socrates was standing near a lake, a young man approached the great teacher and asked him to teach him how to acquire wisdom. Socrates grabbed the man and plunged his head under the water. As the young man struggled for his life, Socrates continued to forcibly hold him under the water. Finally, Socrates let him up to breathe, and when the man, gasping for breath, asked why Socrates nearly drowned him, Socrates replied, “When your desire for wisdom is as great as your desire to breathe, then you will find wisdom.”
We will either find a way, or make one.

Charles Westrill was a young, green, uninformed magazine writer when he invited T. J. Watson to a brown bag lunch—not knowing Watson was the president of IBM. Surprisingly, Watson accepted, but suggested dining at IBM headquarters. Once Charles got over the shock of his lunch date's prominence, Watson gave him some life-changing advice.
"Would you like the formula for success?" Watson asked.
"Double your rate of failure.
"The common mistake, Watson said, is to make failure the enemy of success. Failure may be harsh, but it is the best teacher.
--Thomas J. Watson
Always beware of "PRETTY" poison
A man has a birdfeeder in his yard that he hopes will attract some interesting and exotic birds. So he stocks it with feed, but he discovers that a squirrel is stealing the feed every day. He constructs an intricate contraption to try and stop the squirrel from getting into the feeder, but somehow the squirrel always overcomes the obstacles and steals the food.
The man tries everything, from putting nails on the post to chicken-wire barricades, but every time, the squirrel gets in and eats the birdfeed.
Finally after he’s totally frustrated, he goes to the pet shop in town and ask them if they have a squirrel-proof birdfeeder that can stop squirrels. They tell they do in fact have a squirrel-proof birdfeeder.
It’s only $99.95!!!
He gladly pays the money and takes the squirrel-proof birdfeeder home. He sets it up and fills it with food. The next day; the squirrel has gotten into the feeder and cleaned out all the food. The man is furious, and he pulls the birdfeeder out of the ground and takes it back to the store where he brought it demanding to see the same salesperson that sold it to him. Hey!!! He says, frustration rising in his voice, I brought this birdfeeder from you because it was supposed to be squirrel-proof! The salesman nods and says, “of course.” The man is furious by now…
“What do you mean of course???”
THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A
SQUIRREL-PROOF BIRDFEEDER, SIR.”
What? No such thing? Why that’s…that’s false advertising!!!
I could sue you…
The salesman waves his hands…
“Sir, Please calm down. We’ll be happy to refund your money, but let me ask you something first. Can you tell me how long you spend each day, on average, thinking of how to keep the squirrels out? The man stops for a minute and thinks back, “Well, a little over an hour or so, I suppose.”
The salesman nods and says, “let’s be generous and say it’s two hours. Some days more, some days less. Now, let me ask you this…
HOW LONG DO YOU THINK THAT SQUIRREL SPENDS THINKING ABOUT HOW TO GET INTO YOUR BIRDFEEDER?
The man wrinkles a brow… “Well, uhmm…”
The salesman smiled and said,
"EVERY WAKING MOMENT OF HIS LIFE!"
NO GOAL CAN ELUDE A MAN WHO FINDS THE FOCUS AND PERSISTANCE
THAT THE SQUIRREL HAD.

In order to become a billionaire, you first have to be mentally worth a billion dollars
If you’re not making money while you sleep, you’re never going to get rich. Residual is you work once, you get paid a thousand times
Every dollar is an employee for you. Put that in your asset column. Buy an investment and never take it out of your asset column. Every dollar in one of your assets is an employee working for you
The truth is, if we understood that you can create an intelligent system to do anything; and if you teach somebody to learn to use that system, talk about economic expansion, talk about economic explosion, talk about Freedom. It’s extraordinary!

Do what you love to do and put your whole heart into it
In sales business, the future belongs to the askers—people who ask for what they want, over and over again

If you were totally unafraid of failure, what goals would you set for yourself.
Think about your goals all the time.
The only measure of whether you truly believe something is how consistently you practice.

When you listen to your “inner voice” and follow your intuition, you will never again make a mistake.
Every act of self-discipline increases your confidence, trust and belief in yourself and your abilities.

Develop the reputation for Speed and Efficiency
If you have the faith as a grain of mustard seed, nothing shall be impossible to you
Every great success is an accumulation of ordinary efforts that no one sees or appreciates.
Do what you can right were you are with what you have
Do or Die, Fear or Fly, Sink or Swim, Dare to Win
Feed your mind with healthy, nutritious, intellectual protein, not mental candy.
Be selective about what you see, watch, hear, and listen to. Keep your external influences predominantly positive.
See yourself as a Billionaire and then Do what Billionaires do. Dare to Imagine and Be.
It is not what happens to you, but how you respond to what happens to you that determines your future.
What you send, always be ready to receive.

Billionaires are highly aggressive people. They push, maneuver, and manipulate overtly or covertly to get what they want at all cost. This is unfortunate for those that don’t live life as fanatically as this.
If you don’t make up your mind to do something, there is always someone that will do it for you, that is, make up your mind if you won’t do it for yourself.

Keep setting new and higher goals and standards for yourself. Never be satisfied.
You can do anything you want to do, if you have the right motivation. A red-hot poker in front of your eye is powerful motivation.
Work at least as hard for yourself as you do on your job for someone else.
Desire is the only real limit on your abilities.
Act boldly, and unforeseen forces will come to you aid.
Resolve in advance to persist until you succeed, no matter what the difficulty is.
To keep yourself positive & self-confident, think about your goals all the time.

To discover new continents, you must be willing to lose sight of the shore.
If you could do whatever came to your mind and not think about anyone looking at you, what powerful things could you do?
If you can dream it you can have, if you can see it you can have it, if you can feel it you can have it, all you got to do is BELIEVE. All you’ve got to do is believe.

own under standing. In all thy ways acknowledge him,
and he shall direct thy paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6
