Work to Learn

Quote

2013-12-27 20.45.48

Most people need only to learn and master one more skill and their income would jump exponentially. 

When it comes to money, the only skill most people know is to work hard.

I recommend to young people to seek work for what they will learn, more than what they will earn. Look down the road at what skills they want to acquire before choosing a specific profession and before getting trapped in the Rat Race.

Education is more valuable than money, in the long run.

Robert T. Kiyosaki

From “Whether” to “How”

Quote

2013-12-10 12.48.07

A major turning point in your thinking comes when you change your language from “whether” to “how”. When you start thinking about how you are going to accomplish something you want, and you simultaneously refuse to consider whether it’s possible or not, your entire mentality begins to change. You do get what you think about most of the time, and if you continually think in terms of how you can achieve it, and the specific actions you can take to remove toward it, you are much more likely to be successful in the end.

As Shakespeare wrote, “There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so.” You live in a mental world. Nothing around you has any meaning except the meaning you give it with your thoughts. If you can change your ways of thinking, you change your life.

Brian Tracy

Learn

Quote

To be successful, you need to learn to overcome your fear of being rejected and to stop worrying about what other people say and think about you.

To be successful you must learn to lead people. The ability to get along with and inspire people is a priceless skill, a skill that can be learned.

Have a strong mentor program. You want to learn from leaders, not advisors. You want to learn from people who are already leaders, who are on the right side, and who want you to succeed.

Action and Feeling

Quote

2013-11-29 20.57.30

“Action seems to follow feeling, but really action and feeling go together; and by regulating the action, which is under the more direct control of the will, we can indirectly regulate the feeling, which is not.”

Before entering a man’s office I would pause for an instant and think of the many things I had to be thankful for, work up a great big, honest-to-goodness smile, and then enter the room with the smile just vanishing from my face. It was easy then to turn on a big, happy smile.

Give every living soul you meet the best smile you ever smiled in your life, even your own wife and children, and see how much better you feel and look. It’s one of the best ways I know to stop worrying, and start living. When I began doing this, I found I became more welcome everywhere.

Progressive Realization

Quote

2013-11-27 21.44.31

If you lack an exciting vision for your future, you will “perish” inside in terms of lacking motivation and enthusiasm for what you are doing. But the reverse of this is that with an exciting future vision, you will be continuously motivated and stimulated every day to take the actions necessary to make your ideal vision a reality.

“Happiness is the progressive realization of a worthy ideal.” When you have clear, exciting goals and ideals, you will feel happier about yourself and your world. You will be more positive and optimistic.

Resolve to think about your ideal future most of the time. Remember, the very best days of your life lie ahead.

The future is going to be better than anything that may have happened in your past. There are no limits.

Brian Tracy

Faith and Purpose

Quote

Something more is necessary, however, that merely to see the picture clearly. If that is all you do, you are only a dreamer, and will have little or no power for accomplishment. Behind your clear vision must be the purpose to realize it; to bring it out in tangible expression. And behind this purpose must be an invincible and unwavering FAITH that the thing is already yours; that is “at hand” and you have only to take possession of it.

Hold to the FAITH that the imaginary is being realized, and to the PURPOSE to realize it. Remember that it is faith and purpose in the use of the imagination which make the difference between the scientist and the dreamer. And having learned this fact, it is here that you must learn the proper use of the Will.
