You’re original, cannot be replaced
If you only knew what the future holds
After a hurricane comes a rainbow

So you could open one that leads you to the perfect road
Like a lightening bolt, your heart will glow
And when it’s time you’ll know
You just gotta ignite the light and let it shine

encouragement quote
Anthony Robbins

Anthony Robbins  1960
God’s delays are not God’s denials.

encouragement quote
Anthony Robbins

Anthony Robbins  1960
Identify your problems, but give your power and energy to solutions.

If we keep striving to make things better and we learn from our ’mistakes,’ then we will succeed.

If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always gotten.

No problem is permanent, no problem affects my entire life. This too shall pass if I continue to take massive, positive, constructive action.

Successful people ask better questions, and as a result, they get better answers.

The meeting of preparation with opportunity generates the offspring we call luck.

The only thing that’s keeping you from getting what you want is the story you keep telling yourself.

The people who overcome the odds and turn their lives around make three powerful kinds of decisions every day:
1.  What to focus on
2.  What things mean
3.  What to do

There is a force that controls all your decisions. It influences how you think and feel every moment you’re alive. It determines what you will do and what you will not do. It determines how you feel about anything that occurs in your life. That force is your beliefs.

What would you do if you knew you could not fail?.. If you were absolutely certain of success, what activities would you pursue, what actions would you take? Be specific. The more detailed you are, the more empowered you are to create a result.

We all have problems, disappointments, and frustration, but it’s how we deal with our setbacks that will shape our lives more than anything else we do.

You can change anything in your life today by changing your perceptions and changing your actions.

You see, in life, lots of people know what to do, but few people actually do what they know. Knowing is not enough! You must take action.

Julia Roberts

Jim Rohn

Jim Rohn  1930 – 2009
Your level of success will rarely exceed your level of personal development, because success is something you attract by the person you become.

Theodore Roosevelt  1858 – 1919
