Zitat des Tages von Denis Waitley:
Success is almost totally dependent upon drive and persistence. The extra energy required to make another effort or try another approach is the secret of winning.
The winners in life treat their body as if it were a magnificent spacecraft that gives them the finest transportation and endurance for their lives.
There are two primary choices in life: to accept conditions as they exist, or accept the responsibility for changing them.
You must understand that seeing is believing, but also know that believing is seeing.
Our limitations and success will be based, most often, on your own expectations for ourselves. What the mind dwells upon, the body acts upon.
Change the changeable, accept the unchangeable, and remove yourself from the unacceptable.
Personal satisfaction is the most important ingredient of success.
Don't be a time manager, be a priority manager. Cut your major goals into bite-sized pieces. Each small priority or requirement on the way to ultimate goal become a mini goal in itself.
The greatest gifts you can give your children are the roots of responsibility and the wings of independence.
The winner's edge is not in a gifted birth, a high IQ, or in talent. The winner's edge is all in the attitude, not aptitude. Attitude is the criterion for success.
The essence of life is finding something you really love and then making the daily experience worthwhile.
Never become so much of an expert that you stop gaining expertise. View life as a continuous learning experience.
Failure should be our teacher, not our undertaker. Failure is delay, not defeat. It is a temporary detour, not a dead end. Failure is something we can avoid only by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing.
You must continue to gain expertise, but avoid thinking like an expert.
A life lived with integrity - even if it lacks the trappings of fame and fortune is a shining star in whose light others may follow in the years to come.
Learn from the past, set vivid, detailed goals for the future, and live in the only moment of time over which you have any control: now.
Everything is something you decide to do, and there is nothing you have to do.
Get excited and enthusiastic about you own dream. This excitement is like a forest fire - you can smell it, taste it, and see it from a mile away.
You must accept responsibility for your actions, but not the credit for your achievements.
Forget about the consequences of failure. Failure is only a temporary change in direction to set you straight for your next success.
If you believe you can, you probably can. If you believe you won't, you most assuredly won't. Belief is the ignition switch that gets you off the launching pad.
Time and health are two precious assets that we don't recognize and appreciate until they have been depleted.
Chase your passion, not your pension.
It is not in the pursuit of happiness that we find fulfillment, it is in the happiness of pursuit.
Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude.
That which you create in beauty and goodness and truth lives on for all time to come. Don't spend your life accumulating material objects that will only turn to dust and ashes.
You must be worthy of the best, but not more worthy than the rest.
The winners in life think constantly in terms of I can, I will, and I am. Losers, on the other hand, concentrate their waking thoughts on what they should have or would have done, or what they can't do.
Winners take time to relish their work, knowing that scaling the mountain is what makes the view from the top so exhilarating.
Life is not accountable to us. We are accountable to life.
Relentless, repetitive self talk is what changes our self-image.
Mistakes are painful when they happen, but years later a collection of mistakes is what is called experience.
As long as we are persistence in our pursuit of our deepest destiny, we will continue to grow. We cannot choose the day or time when we will fully bloom. It happens in its own time.
No man or woman is an island. To exist just for yourself is meaningless. You can achieve the most satisfaction when you feel related to some greater purpose in life, something greater than yourself.
Life is the movie you see through your own eyes. It makes little difference what's happening out there. It's how you take it that counts.
You must consider the bottom line, but make it integrity before profits.
