If you do what other successful people do, you will eventually get the same results that they do. And if you don’t, you won’t.

Hawthorne Effect: The very act of paying attention to a particular behavior causes you to improve your performance in that area.

The only way that you can tell what a person really believes is by his actions, not his words. It's not what you say, or what you intend, or what you wish, or hope, or pray for … but only what you do that counts. Your true values and beliefs are only and always expressed in your actions. One person who will take action is worth ten brilliant talkers who end up doing nothing … Only action is action. And nothing else counts for much. Don't tell people what you're going to do. Show them.

Excellence is not a destination, it is a continuous journey that never ends.

Winners make a habit of manufacturing their own positive expectations in advance of the event.

The ability to discipline yourself to delay gratification in the short term in order to enjoy greater rewards in the long term, is the indispensable prerequisite for success.

Worry is a sustained form of fear caused by indecision.

Whatever we expect with confidence becomes our own self-fulfilling prophecy.

Goals allow you to control the direction of change in your favour.

Your greatest asset is your earning ability. Your greatest resource is your time.

I've found that luck is quite predictable. If you want more luck, take more chances. Be more active. Show up more often.

For every difficulty that supposedly stops a person from succeeding there are thousands who have had it a lot worse and have succeeded anyway. So can you.

Do it now. Do it now. Do it now.

Move out of your comfort zone. You can only grow if you are willing to feel awkward and uncomfortable when you try something new.

The more you seek security, the less of it you have. But the more you seek opportunity, the more likely it is that you will achieve the security that you desire.

No one lives long enough to learn everything they need to learn starting from scratch. To be successful, we absolutely, positively have to find people who have already paid the price to learn the things that we need to learn to achieve our goals.

Never say anything about yourself you do not want to come true.

The happiest people in the world are those who feel absolutely terrific about themselves, and this is the natural outgrowth of accepting total responsibility for every part of their life.

How much we like ourselves governs our performance.

All successful people men and women are big dreamers. They imagine what their future could be, ideal in every respect, and then they work every day toward their distant vision, that goal or purpose.

Decisiveness is a characteristic of high-performing men and women. Almost any decision is better than no decision at all.

Successful people are simply those with success habits.

Your decision to be, have and do something out of ordinary entails facing difficulties that are out of the ordinary as well. Sometimes your greatest asset is simply your ability to stay with it longer than anyone else.

You have within you right now, everything you need to deal with whatever the world can throw at you.

You keep customers by delivering on your promises, fulfilling your commitments and continually investing in the quality of your relationships.
