    When you develop yourself to the point where your belief in yourself is so strong that you know that you can accomplish almost anything you really want, your future will be unlimited.

    The high road to success is to act as if it were impossible to fail, and it shall be.”

    1. Resolve today to act as if you had all the self-confidence in the world. Say what you think, ask for what you want, and persist until you succeed.

    2. Write down your three most important goals in life right now. Then write down three steps you could take to achieve each of these goals, and take immediate action on at least one step.

    3. Identify the three most important results you achieve in your work, and resolve today to work on those activities most of the time.

    4. Create a clear mental picture of yourself performing at your best—calm, confident, and optimistic—and replay this picture over and over throughout the day.

    5. Dedicate yourself to continuous personal and professional improvement, getting better every day.

    6. Accept 100 percent responsibility for everything you are today, and for everything you become in the future. Refuse to blame anyone for anything.

    7. Resolve today that you will never give up, that you will persist over all obstacles until you succeed in creating the wonderful life that is possible for you.

    Whenever you have the choice of doing what is fun and easy rather than what is hard but necessary, force yourself out of your comfort zone in the direction of your dreams. Consciously resist the temptation to go easy on yourself. Remember that the comfort zone is the great enemy of human performance and human potential. It is only in the areas of challenge and risk that you force yourself just beyond what is comfortable and easy for you, that the possibilities of success await.

    The final quality of success identified in the study was that of result orientation. This means that you know that you are capable of getting the results for which you are responsible. All highly respected men and women are recognized as being the kind of people who can get the job done, whatever it is. They are invariably decisive, results-focused, action-oriented people.

    lasting recognition from the important people in your work only comes from being very good at what you do. It is only excellent performance in your job that raises you above politics and gives you the kind of power and influence that really makes a difference in any organization.

    Whenever something happens that throws you off balance, stabilize yourself by thinking about your goals. Because of the law of substitution, you can only think one thought at a time, and if you think about your goals, your mind will instantly become positive again. Make a game of rising above the petty frustrations of people and traffic and unexpected setbacks. Say to yourself, “What can’t be cured must be endured.” Get back to thinking about your goals and about what you can do, right now, to move toward them.

    Intelligence is more a matter of doing the right things rather than doing things right.

    Here is a key insight: Everything you do is either moving you toward one of your goals or moving you away from it. Nothing is neutral. Everything counts.

    You win by thinking about winning all the time and refusing to consider the possibility of losing.

    persistence is a form of courage
    Диана Сhas quoted2 months ago
    The more you think, talk, and write about your goals, the more determined you become to make them a reality, and the more likely it is that you will push yourself forward to overcome the fears that might hold you back.
    Диана Сhas quoted2 months ago
    you can tell how high a building is going to be by looking at how deep they dig the foundation. The height to which you rise in life will always be determined by the depth of your own personal foundation, which is almost always the quality and quantity of your failures, and what you have become as a result of them.

    The person interested in success has to learn to view failure as a healthy, inevitable part of the process of getting to the top.
    Диана Сhas quoted2 months ago
    Edison knew that success is a numbers game. It is based on intelligent effort and the law of probabilities. If you try enough different things in enough different ways, and you learn from each test or failure, then you must inevitably be successful. The fear of failure, on the other hand, causes people to try fewer and fewer things, thereby lowering the probability that they will ever achieve anything of consequence.

    Now the obvious question is this: Did those young men fail in each of their previous business enterprises? The answer is clear. They did not fail. They were learning how to succeed. Their previous business enterprises were the testing grounds at which they learned the lessons necessary to achieve financial independence later.

    On the David Susskind Show some years ago, they had four men who had all become entrepreneurial millionaires before the age of 35. They were asked, during a break, to add up and calculate the total number of different businesses that they had started or tried before they found the business in which they made their fortunes. It turned out that the four men had started an average of 17 businesses each, an average of 16 of which had been unsuccessful, but it was the 17th business that had made them rich.

    “Do you want to be successful? Then, double your rate of failure. Success lies on the far side of failure.”

    Every man or woman of great achievement has been, at one time, a magnificent failure. The greatest successes of our generation and of our history books are the stories of men and women who failed so many times that they finally learned how to succeed.

    If you’re not failing, you’re not growing.”
    Диана Сhas quoted2 months ago
    no success is possible without failure. All success is preceded by failure, usually great failure, repeated over a long period of time.
