Motivational Words by Brian Tracy

Never settle for anything less than your best.

A clear vision, backed by definite plans, gives you a tremendous feeling of confidence and personal power.

Never be afraid to take the first step because of the possibility of failure. Know in advance that you are going to fail many times before you achieve your goal. The good news is that every failure teaches you something that will be helpful to you to not only achieve your goal but to hold onto the goal once you reach it.

You cannot control what happens to you, but you can control your attitude toward what happens to you, and in that, you will be mastering change rather than allowing it to master you.

People with clear, written goals, accomplish far more in a shorter period of time than people without them could ever imagine.

The more you do what you're doing, the more you'll get of what you've got.

Develop an attitude of gratitude, and give thanks for everything that happens to you, knowing that every step forward is a step toward achieving something bigger and better than your current situation.

In any endeavor we can choose to be positive and constructive, sit down and think through the situation, and then begin to deal with it one oil barrel — one small achievement — at a time. Of course, this isn't always as easy as it sounds. We all must overcome the four obstacles that tend to get in the way of our maintaining a positive attitude.

Setting priorities begins with deciding what you want most in life and then organizing your time and activities so everything you do is the most valuable use of your time in achieving those objectives.

Perhaps one of the greatest discoveries in history is this simple truth: you become that which you think about most of the time. No one is smarter than you, no one is better than you, no one has more inborn talent than you. But successful people, at one point or another, set their minds on becoming that which they have now become.
