Zitat des Tages von Jim Rohn:
The more you know the less you need to say.
Character isn't something you were born with and can't change, like your fingerprints. It's something you weren't born with and must take responsibility for forming.
Whatever good things we build end up building us.
Affirmation without discipline is the beginning of delusion.
When you know what you want, and want it bad enough, you will find a way to get it.
Don't wish it were easier, wish you were better.
Don't just read the easy stuff. You may be entertained by it, but you will never grow from it.
Your philosophy determines whether you will go for the disciplines or continue the errors.
Take care of your body. It's the only place you have to live.
Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present.
Either you run the day or the day runs you.
Make measurable progress in reasonable time.
A good objective of leadership is to help those who are doing poorly to do well and to help those who are doing well to do even better.
Money is usually attracted, not pursued.
Take time to gather up the past so that you will be able to draw from your experience and invest them in the future.
If you don't design your own life plan, chances are you'll fall into someone else's plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much.
Success is doing ordinary things extraordinarily well.
Success is steady progress toward one's personal goals.
The major reason for setting a goal is for what it makes of you to accomplish it. What it makes of you will always be the far greater value than what you get.
If you are not willing to risk the unusual, you will have to settle for the ordinary.
For every disciplined effort there is a multiple reward.
If you go to work on your goals, your goals will go to work on you. If you go to work on your plan, your plan will go to work on you. Whatever good things we build end up building us.
It doesn't matter which side of the fence you get off on sometimes. What matters most is getting off. You cannot make progress without making decisions.
Failure is not a single, cataclysmic event. You don't fail overnight. Instead, failure is a few errors in judgement, repeated every day.
Effective communication is 20% what you know and 80% how you feel about what you know.
Miss a meal if you have to, but don't miss a book.
The walls we build around us to keep sadness out also keeps out the joy.
Give whatever you are doing and whoever you are with the gift of your attention.
Failure is simply a few errors in judgment, repeated every day.
Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment.
We must all suffer one of two things: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret or disappointment.
Without a sense of urgency, desire loses its value.
The worst thing one can do is not to try, to be aware of what one wants and not give in to it, to spend years in silent hurt wondering if something could have materialized - never knowing.
Some people plant in the spring and leave in the summer. If you're signed up for a season, see it through. You don't have to stay forever, but at least stay until you see it through.
To solve any problem, here are three questions to ask yourself: First, what could I do? Second, what could I read? And third, who could I ask?
Things that I felt absolutely sure of but a few years ago, I do not believe now. This thought makes me see more clearly how foolish it would be to expect all men to agree with me.
