Zitat des Tages von Maxwell Maltz:
Often the difference between a successful man and a failure is not one's better abilities or ideas, but the courage that one has to bet on his ideas, to take a calculated risk, and to act.
Self-improvement is the name of the game, and your primary objective is to strengthen yourself, not to destroy an opponent.
Low self-esteem is like driving through life with your hand-brake on.
We must have courage to bet on our ideas, to take the calculated risk, and to act. Everyday living requires courage if life is to be effective and bring happiness.
You make mistakes. Mistakes don't make you.
Close scrutiny will show that most 'crisis situations' are opportunities to either advance, or stay where you are.
The 'self-image' is the key to human personality and human behavior. Change the self image and you change the personality and the behavior.
For imagination sets the goal picture which our automatic mechanism works on. We act, or fail to act, not because of will, as is so commonly believed, but because of imagination.
Take the trouble to stop and think of the other person's feelings, his viewpoints, his desires and needs. Think more of what the other fellow wants, and how he must feel.
Accept yourself as you are. Otherwise you will never see opportunity. You will not feel free to move toward it; you will feel you are not deserving.
Realizing that our actions, feelings and behaviour are the result of our own images and beliefs gives us the level that psychology has always needed for changing personality.
Our self image, strongly held, essentially determines what we become.
To change a habit, make a conscious decision, then act out the new behavior.
If you make friends with yourself you will never be alone.
Your most important sale in life is to sell yourself to yourself.
You can always find the sun within yourself if you will only search.
To think, when one is no longer young, when one is not yet old, that one is no longer young, that one is not yet old, that is perhaps something.
Man maintains his balance, poise, and sense of security only as he is moving forward.
Self-image sets the boundaries of individual accomplishment.
