“To touch the soul of another human being is to walk on holy ground.”
“You have to decide what your highest priorities are and have the courage—pleasantly, smilingly, nonapologetically, to say “no” to other things. And the way you do that is by having a bigger “yes” burning inside.
“If I really want to improve my situation, I can work on the one thing over which I have control – myself.”
“To change ourselves effectively, we first had to change our perceptions.”
“I am not a product of my circumstances. I am a product of my decisions.”
“How different our lives are when we really know what is deeply important to us, and keeping that picture in mind, we manage ourselves each day to be and to do what really matters most.”
“Live out of your imagination, not your history.”
“The ability to subordinate an impulse to a value is the essence of the proactive person."
“Start with the end in mind.”
“Sow a thought, reap an action; sow an action, reap a habit; sow a habit, reap a character; sow a character, reap a destiny.”
“People can’t live with change if there’s not a changeless core inside them.”
: “But until a person can say deeply and honestly, “I am what I am today because of the choices I made yesterday,” that person cannot say, “I choose otherwise.” – Stephen R. Covey
