CHAPTER 1

You are where you’re at because of the series of choices you’ve made

The #1 need we have in our society today is people who will accept responsibility

It’s not the external, it’s the internal that makes a difference

It’s not what happened to you, it’s how you respond and react

Hope in the future is power in the present

A study showed in 100% of the cases that as your vocabulary increases, so does your IQ

Failure is an event, not a person

Character is the ability to carry out a resolution long after the excitement has worn out

If you don’t like your job, give it your best shot and that’s how you get a better one

Finish school and that is easy. Never finish your education, that is hard

Most people who have a problem don’t want to solve it because then they can’t talk and tell everyone about it

People who are the problem never recognize it

They think denial is a river in Egypt

A lot of people try to find fault like there’s a reward for it

You don’t change people

You change you and then your world begins to change

People attributed their success not to IQ but their ability to focus

You need the will to win and will to prepare to win

When you’re tough on yourself, life can be tremendously rewarding to you

When you discipline yourself to do the things you need to do when you need to do them, the day is going to come when you can do the things you want to do when you want to do them

His wife would say “I love you” and “I believe in you”

Go for quality of life first, then standard of living goes up

You don’t have to be great to start, you do have to start to be great

What you do off the job determines how far you go on the job

Those who set goals and a plan of action earned significantly more money

People who know where they’re going and how to get there are easier to get along with

You won’t have a leg to stand on if you blame other people and your past

The great truths in life are simple

Discipline, enthusiasm, and persistence is important

Motivation will get you started but habit will get you there
