Achievement

“Small victories lead to large victories.  You must build on the small to achieve the great.  By following through on a resolution as simple as getting up earlier every day, you will feel the pleasure and gratification that achievement brings.  You have set a goal and you have realized it.  This feels good.  The trick is to keep setting the mark higher and raising your standards continuously.  This will then release that magical quality of momentum that will motivate you to keep exploring your infinite potential.” ~ Robin S. Sharma, The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari

“The mind works through pictures.  Pictures affect your self-image and your self-image affects the way you feel, act and achieve.  If your self-image tells you that you are too young to be a successful lawyer or too old to change your habits for the better, you never will achieve these goals.  If your self-image tells you that lives rich with purpose, excellent health and happiness are only for people from backgrounds other than your own, this prophecy will ultimately become your reality.” ~ Robin S. Sharma, The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari

“All success in life, whether material or spiritual, starts with that twelve-pound mass sitting between your shoulders.  Or more specifically, with the thoughts that you put into your mind every second of every minute of every day.  Your outer world reflects the state of your inner world.  By controlling the thoughts that you think and the way you respond to the events of your life, you begin to control your destiny.” ~ Robin S. Sharma, The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari

The Art of Achievement

You hold in your hand the camel’s hair brush of a painter of Life.  You stand before the vast white canvas of Time.  The paints are your  thoughts, emotions, and acts.

You select the colors of your thoughts; drab or bright, weak or strong, good or bad.

You select the colors of your emotions; discordant or harmonious, harsh or quiet, weak or strong.

You select the colors of your acts: cold or warm, fearful or daring, small or big.

Through the power of your creative imagination you catch a vision… you dream a dream.

You visualize yourself as the man you want to be.

“No one ever achieved a goal by being interested in its achievement.  One must be committed.  In fact, in studying the source of people’s success, I’ve found that persistence overshadows even talent as the most valued and effective resource in creating and shaping the quality of life. Most people give up a maddening five feet from their goal!” ~ Anthony Robbins, Awaken the Giant Within

“You don’t win an Olympic gold medal with a few weeks of intensive training.  There’s no such thing as an overnight opera sensation. Great law firms or design companies don’t spring up overnight… Every great company, every great brand, and every great career has been built in exactly the same way: bit by bit, step by step, little by little.” ~ Seth Godin

“There can be no progress, no achievement without sacrifice, and a man’s worldly success will be in the measure that he sacrifices his confused animal thoughts, and fixes his mind on the development of his plans, and the strengthening of his resolution and self-reliance.  And the higher he lifts his thoughts, the more manly, upright, and righteous he becomes, the greater will be his success, the more blessed and enduring will be his achievements.” ~ James Allen, As a Man Thinketh
