People he has quoted

Tony Robbins - http://www.tonyrobbins.com/ 

"The past DOES NOT equal the future!"

“The human spirit is truly unconquerable. But the will to win, the will to succeed, to shape one’s life, to take control, can only be harnessed when you decide what you want, and believe that no challenge, no problem, no obstacle can keep you from it. When you decide that your life will ultimately be shaped not by conditions, but by your decisions, then, in that moment, your life will change forever…”

Earl Nightingale - http://www.nightingale.com

"People with goals succeed because they know where they are going... It's as simple as that."

Zig Ziglar - http://www.ziglar.com/

“The person who will not stand for something will fall for anything. “

Harvey Mackey - http://www.harveymackay.com/

  • Life is ten percent how you make it and ninety percent how you take it.
  • Life is like a ten-speed bicycle.  Most people don’t use enough of their gears.
  • One of the greatest truths in life is that “No” is a complete sentence.
  • The stumbling blocks in life are nothing more than stepping stones.
  • The happiest people don’t necessarily have the best of everything.  They just make the best of everything.
  • Every day is a gift!  That’s why it’s called the present!

Napoleon Hill - http://www.naphill.org/

 “Self-disciplined begins with the mastery of your thoughts. If you don't control what you think, you can't control what you do. Simply, self-discipline enables you to think first and act afterward.”

Brian Tracy - http://www.briantracy.com/personal_development/

The key to long term success is for you to dedicate yourself to continuous improvement. If you become one tenth of one percent more productive each day, that amounts to 1/1000th improvement per working day. Is that possible? Of course it is!”

Leo Buscaglia - http://www.buscaglia.com

“It's not enough to have lived. We should be determined to live for something. May I suggest that it be creating joy for others, sharing what we have for the betterment of personkind, bringing hope to the lost and love to the lonely.”

When You Lose Your Job and When All Else Falls Away…
