Advice From a Pessimist?

Heeding advice from a pessimist is risky business. Achievers need to have 100% confidence in themselves despite the negative gale forces coming at them. They need to believe that eventual success will come.


Never Quit!

Of course, nothing can guarantee that you’ll accomplish your goal for certain, but there’s one thing that will guarantee that you won’t accomplish it…quitting. Yes, temptations and distractions can sidetrack your mission, but you can never stop trying. You must never quit.


What Do You Choose?

You always have two distinct choices when you open your eyes in the morning: Take on the challenges of the day with enthusiasm and hope, or let out a groan and start worrying about all the things you have to do. Those two choices are exactly that…choices. You choose. And each begins with the sort of attitude you have.


Reach for Your Dreams

A fairytale dream comes to life. It can happen...but not by just talking or dreaming about an idea. The inspiration that hides in your mind can never be seen unless you let it out for others to see.


How to be a Magnet

Your attitude is a magnet. An attitude committed to succeeding magnetically draws opportunity; it magically attracts people. A person who wears an attitude that’s enthusiastic, confident, and determined will cause people to positively gravitate toward him or her.


Can You Imagine a Good Life?

Imagine what would happen in your career if you performed your job with excellence every single day. Imagine what would happen in the relationships in your life if you greeted every person you met as if they were the most important person in the world. 


Predicting the Future

If you think your job is dull, it will be. If you tell a child that he’s average, chances are he’ll perform that way. You have the ability to turn a situation into exactly what you predict.


Power of Positivity

We can’t control what others do, but we can control what we do. Let’s hold our tongues instead of lashing out. If our hearts are bitter, let’s learn to forgive. By doing so, we can improve our relationships, our health, and our life. 


Be Grateful

Everything we've experienced up to this point...the positive AND the negative...has made us who we are. If we like who we are now, we need to be grateful for every loss, failure, struggle and tragedy we've ever experienced. Each has helped shape us.


Flexibility and Open-Mindedness

Sometimes the answers to your questions are not where you have grown accustomed to looking. When you open your eyes to possibility, you need to close your ears to probability. Sometimes that means closing your ears to your own voice.
