Key Concepts about Attitudes

  • You never seem to have enough time yet you have all the time there is. The problem is not the shortage of time but how you choose the time that is available.
  • Time management is really self-management.
  • Chinese Proverb: Besides the noble art of getting things done, there is the noble art of leaving things undone. The wisdom of life lies in eliminating the non-essentials.
  • Earl Nightingale: “Habits are the key to success. Successful people form the habit of doing the things that others don’t like to do.”
  • Zig Ziglar:”When you choose a habit, you also choose the results of that habit.”
  • It is not enough to know, you must also act. Knowledge without action is impotent.
  • Most of us only change when we are forced to do so. Force can be either external or internal.
  • The key to will-power is want-power. If you want something strongly enough, you will usually find the discipline necessary to do it.
  • Self-discipline is simply doing what you know you should do, regardless of whether or not you feel like doing it
  • Self-discipline is easier if you stop thinking about it, and simply do it
  • Press on. Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence
  • Henry Ford: “Whether you think you can, or whether you think you can’t, you’re right.
