Earl Nightingale

We become what we think about.
Success is the progressive realization of a worthy goal or ideal

Lead The Field


  • conform = follow the follower

The 3 Factors That Determine Your Pay

You're paid in direct proportion to

  1. demand: the demand for what you do
  2. skill: your ability to do it
  3. supply: the difficulty of replacing you

So entertainers and horse jockeys can be highly paid because there is demand for their services (even if you don't think that what they contribute is of much value).

Set 3 Financial Goals

When planning, set your goals for

  1. your income
  2. your assets
  3. your retirement income


  • the key that connects us to opportunities
  • energy transforms attitude to action


Most people think they want more money than they really do, and they settle for a lot less than they could get.

Slippery Fish

Ideas are like slippery fish. If you don't spear them with a pencil they get away.

Ideas are elusive, slippery things. Best to keep a pad of paper and a pencil at your bedside, so you can stab them during the night before they get away.

We have 50,000 ideas run through our minds daily. Ideas are like wet slippery fish. You got to get 'em when they show up or they will slip away never to be seen again

Ideas are like slippery fish. They seem to have a peculiar knack of getting away from us. Because of this, the creative person always has a pad and a pencil handy. When he gets an idea, he writes it down. He knows that many people have found their whole lives changed by a single great thought. By capturing ideas immediately, he doesn't risk forgetting them.
