If you want to truly LI(O)VE Learn and Grow you need to feed your brain like you feed your body to be healthy. A little bit every single day with good stuff.
The following quotes are from The Slight Edge by Jeff Olson:
Be happy and the reason will appear.
Why should I have to build the skills, relationships and experience that it takes to earn money? Why can’t I just buy a ticket and have it? .
Plant, CULTIVATE through the patient persistant dimension of time, harvest. There are no 5-minute montages in real life.
Your philosophy determines your attitude which determines your actions and those actions are what produce your results… Fully grasp the importance and the power of simple DAILY actions, The Slight Edge philosophy. The right philosophy leads to the right attitude which leads to right actions.
What pulls people who dwell in failure is the past. What pulls people who live in success is the future.
Successful people do what unsuccessful people are not willing to do.
Who did you associate yourself with today? Did they Empower you? How? In what way?
How do I establish good habits? Do the thing and you shall have the power…By simply showing up you can rise above half the competition in any circumstance.
80% of success is just showing up every day.
Embrace the funk. When something is hard or difficult and adversity is at your front door embrace it because it will make you stronger and your life richer. You can’t know happiness unless you feel sadness. If you embrace it as part of the process it can be life-altering.
Successful people look at a problem and see opportunity
Whose dream did you help build today: Yours or somebody else’s?
Do the thing and you shall have the power. Don’t try to figure it all out. If you want twice to success double your rate of failure… Success is the progressive realization of a worthy ideal.
Beginner’s mind: a mindset of humility and fresh inquiry always looking for the most meaning and importance in the smallest things.
-the Zen Buddhists
Plan to start one simple daily discipline.
If health comes first Happiness Is Right on its heels because once you start practicing simple daily disciplines that increase your levels of happiness you’ll find it feeds every other aspect of self-improvement you’re trying to implement. Happiness leads to success not the other way around. Creating happiness is a lot easier and more accessible than most people think. The first step to increasing your happiness is to understand what positive psychology research has been telling us for the past 15 years. The most significant factors in your day to day moment-to-moment level of happiness are not circumstantial, they’re not heredity, they’re not caused by outside events. The most significant factors in your happiness are YOUR ACTIONS. What you do every day.
The most important thing to know about increasing your happiness is that it is something that you can consciously intentionally do but it doesn’t happen automatically or by just by deciding to be happier. Happiness is like health. There are concrete steps you need to take to make it happen. No doubt you’ll change and develop your plan and happy habits routine further. The first thing is to just start with a simple plan.
Don’t go too fast and don’t be afraid to stop.
The following quotes are from The 7 Habits Of Highly Effective People by Stephen R. Covey:
True greatness will be achieved through the abundant mind that works selflessly with mutual respect and for mutual benefits
The principle of influence is governed by Mutual understanding born of the commitment of at least one person too deep listening first
We must look at the lens through which we see the world as well as at the world we see and the lens itself shapes how we interpret the world… if we want to change a situation we first have to change ourselves and to change ourselves effectively we first have to change our perceptions
The significant problems we face cannot be solved at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them.
Happiness is the knowledge and ability to separate what we want now from what we want eventually
Between stimulus, what happens or has ever happened to us or around us, and response lies our power and freedom to choose. And in those choices lies our growth and happiness.
Reactive people build their emotional lives around the behavior of others impowering the weaknesses of others to control them. The ability to subordinate an impulse to a value is the essence of a proactive person. proactive people are driven by carefully selected and internalized values and have value-based choices and responses to stimuli.
No one can hurt you without your consent – Eleanor Roosevelt
They cannot take away our self-respect if we do not give it to them – Gandhi
Our consent is what hurts us. The greatest harm or good is that that we do to our self in response. Until a person can say deeply and honestly I am what I am because of the choices that I have made they cannot choose otherwise.
For you to have the gall to suggest that nothing can hurt me that no one can hurt me without my consent and that I have chosen my own emotional life of being miserable there’s just no way I can buy into that. But you know I get thinking and thinking and thinking about it. I really went inside myself and began to ask, Do I have the power to choose my response? When I finally realized that I do, that I have that power, when I swallow that bitter pill and realize that I had chosen to be miserable I also realized I could choose not to be miserable. At that moment I stood up. I felt as though I was being let out of prison! I wanted to yell to the whole world I am free! No longer am I going to be controlled by the behavior of some person. Of course things can hurt us physically or emotionally and cause sorrow but it’s our character and basic identity that don’t have to be hurt at all. In fact our most difficult experiences become the crucibles that forge character and develop the internal Powers, the freedom to handle difficult circumstances in the future and also to inspire others to do so.
Courage is not the absence of fear but the awareness that something else is more important
The following quotes are from Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich:
Every adversity, every failure, every heartache carries with it the seed of an equal or greater benefit.
Great achievement is usually born of great sacrifice, and is never the result of selfishness.
Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve.
Until you have formed the habit of looking for the good instead of the bad there is in others, you will be neither successful nor happy.
There are no limitations to the mind except those we acknowledge.
Cherish your visions and your dreams as they are the children of your soul, the blueprints of your ultimate achievements.
Opportunity often comes disguised in the form of misfortune, or temporary defeat.
Don’t wait. The time will never be just right.
Most great people have attained their greatest success just one step beyond their greatest failure.
Your ability to use the principle of autosuggestion will depend, very largely, upon your capacity to concentrate upon a given desire until that desire becomes a burning obsession.”
ANYBODY can WISH for riches, and most people do, but only a few know that a definite plan, plus a BURNING DESIRE for wealth, are the only Dependable means of accumulating wealth.
If you think you are beaten, you are. If you think you dare not, you don’t. If you like to win, but you think you can’t, it is almost certain you won’t. If you think you’ll lose, your lost
For out of the world we find
Success begins with a fellows will– It’s all in the state of mind.
If you think you are outclassed you are, You’ve got to think high to rise,
You’ve got to be sure of yourself before You can ever win a prize.
Life’s battles don’t always go to the stronger or faster man, But soon or late the ones who win are the ones WHO THINK THEY CAN!
Learn the art of converting defeat into stepping stones for opportunity. One Sound Idea is all that one needs to achieve success.
When riches begin to come they come so quickly and in such great abundance that one wonders where they have been hiding during all those lean years. Riches begin with a state of mind, with definiteness of Purpose, with little or no hard work. Success comes to those who become success conscious.
Every person is what they are because of the dominating thoughts which they permit to occupy their mind. A thought magnetized with emotion may be compared to a seed when planted in fertile soil German Ace grows and multiplies itself over and over again until one small seed becomes Countess of millions of seeds in the same brand.
I will cause others to believe in me because I will believe in them and myself and serve them first eliminating hatred, envy, jealousy, selfishness and cynicism by developing love for all Humanity because I know that a negative attitude toward others can never bring me success
The following quotes are from
Ask And It Is Given by Esther and Abraham Hicks:
You are a perfect and expanding being
When you expect something it is on its way
You are free
You are good
You are powerful
You are love
You have value
You have purpose
All is well
Constantly reach for a feeling that is improved
Self improvement is joy, love, appreciation and knowledge
Reach for the best feeling thought you have access to right now and as you do that again and again you will find yourself in a very good feeling place
Untill you decide you’re going to guide Yourself by the way you feel you can make no steady progress toward your own desires.
I’m doing my best to make the best of it
Once you make a determined decision to continually reach for the relief that an improved emotion brings you will find yourself feeling good most of the time and allowing into your experience all of the things you desire.
Anticipating wonderful expansion and the feeling of Desire is life flowing through you
There is no feeling of lack in pure desire
Once you are in control of the way you feel you will enjoy it all. You will enjoy your exposure to the variety and contrast that helps you identify your desire and you will enjoy the sensation of your own desire which is being launched from your own valuable perspective that is Flowing from you. You will enjoy the sensation of your conscious awareness when you are not a vibrational match to your own desire and you will enjoy the sensation of deliberately bringing yourself back into vibrational alignment with your desire. You will feel relief as doubts slip away and as the secure feelings of well-being replace them. You will enjoy sensing things that are about to happen. You will enjoy seeing things becoming, beginning to fall into place and you will adore witnessing the manifestations of your desires. You will reveal in a conscious awareness that you have deliberately molded your desires to being in a way as real as if you had created a statue with the clay in your own hands. You will adore the sensations you feel as you align again and again with the fruits of your own experience.
When you go with the flow of your own desires you will feel truly alive and you will truly live
When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.
If something you want is slow to come to you, it can be for only one reason: You are spending more time focused upon its absence than you are about its presence.
The greatest gift
you can ever give
another person is
your own happiness
Every physical being on your planet is your partner in co-creation and if you would accept that and appreciate the diversity of beliefs and desires all of you would have more expansive, satisfying, and fulfilling experiences.
The basis of your life is absolute freedom to create.
You are the creator of your own reality.
Consciously allow your natural connection to the stream of well-being.
Become happy with that which you are and that which you have while at the same time being eager for more. That is the optimal creative vantage point to stand on the brink of what is coming feeling eager optimistic anticipation with no feeling of impatience doubt or unworthiness hindering the receiving of it. That is the science of deliberate creation at its best.
By paying attention to the way you feel you can fulfill your reason for being here.
Whatever you are giving your attention to causes you to emit a vibration and the vibrations that you offer equal you’re asking which equals your point of attraction. Achieve vibrational harmony with what you desire by imagining that you already have it. Flow your thoughts toward the enjoyment of the experience to be in the place of allowing it in. When you feel good you are giving your attention to what you desire and by law, what you are giving your attention to will come to you. You get what you think about. Bad or good nothing in your life experience can occur without your invitation of it through your thought. There’s nothing that you cannot be, do, or have. You are a Summoner of vibrational energy. You are consciousness. You are energy. You are vibration. You are electricity. You are Creator on the Leading Edge of thought.
You are here to experience outrageous joy. That is why you are here. You are the creator of your own reality. Be pleased with where you are right now in this moment, no matter where you are. Understanding this may sound strange if you’re in a place that’s far from where you want to be, it’s an absolute promise to you that when you understand the power of feeling good now, no matter what, you will hold the key to the achievement of any state of being, any state of health, any state of wealth, or any state of anything that you desire
Fulfillment need not be
what’s just around the corner.
In the end, wisdom lies in
finding it in the imperfect now.
Live for what you have and love
not for what you’ve lost
Life is short. Find the people who really matter, and the relationships that allow you to thrive

The 7 Habits Of Highly Effective People by Stephen R. Covey
Disc One summary
There is a vital difference between the personality ethic and the character ethic of success. Search your own heart with all diligence for out of it flows the issues of life. Elements of the personality ethic: personality growth, communication skill training, education in the field of influence strategies, and positive thinking, are essential for success but these are secondary not primary traits. We need to know how to make Paradigm shifts. Our paradigms are the way we see the world or our mental maps. A map is not the territory it is simply an explanation of simple aspects about the territory. The fundamental problem has nothing to do with your behavior or your attitude. It has everything to do with having the wrong map. Suppose you wanted to arrive at a specific Place in Chicago but through a printing error the map that you were given was labeled Chicago but was actually a map of Detroit. Imagine the frustration of trying to find the place you want in Chicago with a map of Detroit that’s labeled Chicago. If you have the right map then behavior or diligence becomes important. Each of us has many many maps in our head that can be divided into two main categories. Maps of the way things are, or realities, and maps of the way things should be, or values. We assume that the way we see things is the way that they really are or should be. Then our attitudes and behaviors grow out of those assumptions. The way we see things is the source of the way we think and the way we Act. We see the world as we are conditioned to see it. Lots of people were dying during childbirth, new paradigm, germs. wash your hands. The United States today is a paradigm shift government by the people and for the people… Guy on a bus was letting his kids run around causing a ruckus, new paradigm, found out their mother just died and they don’t know how to handle it. Because I saw things, felt, and behaved differently. My irritation vanished. I didn’t have to worry about controlling my attitude or behavior. My heart was filled with the man’s pain. Feelings of sympathy and compassion flowed freely. Many people have a paradigm shift when they have a near-death experience or step into a new role such as parent, manager or leader. If a student becomes a teacher of what they are learning they instantly become a better student. A change comes spontaneously when we see things differently.
Disc two summary
Paradigm’s are inseparable from character. Being is seeing in the human dimension and what we see is highly interrelated to what we are. Principles and practices are different. While practices are situationally specific principles are deep fundamental truths that have Universal and timeless application. When these truths are internalized into habits they Empower people to create a wide variety of practices to deal with different situations. Principles are not values. A gang of Thieves can share values. Principles are the territory values are maps. When we value correct principles we have truth. You can’t pretend to be a professional tennis or piano player takes a lot of practice to get to the higher levels same thing with developing your character paradigms.
Significant problems we Face cannot be solved at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them. – Albert Einstein
We need to think Inside Out starting with the most inward part of self. With your paradigms your character your assumptions and your motives. Be the kind of person who generates positive energy and sidesteps negative energy. Be more understanding empathetic and consistently caring. Be more responsible, helpful and contributing. Be trustworthy. Private victories precede public victories. Making and keeping promises to ourselves precede keeping promises to others. it’s futile to try improving relationships with others before improving ourselves. Inside Out is a continual process of renewal based on natural laws that govern Human growth and progress. It’s an upward spiral of growth that leads to progressively higher forms of responsible Independence and effective interdependence.
We must not cease from exploration and the and of all of our exploring will be to arrive where we began and to know the place for the first time. -TS Eliot
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then is not an act but a habit-Aristotle
Habits have a tremendous gravity pull. Breaking deeply embedded habitual tendencies such as procrastination, impatiens, criticalness, or selfishness that violate basic principles of human effectiveness involves more than a little willpower and a few minor changes in our lives. Our Character basically is a composite of our habits. Habits are the intersection of knowledge, what and why,, skill, how,, and desire, the motivation or want. Happiness is the desire and ability to sacrifice what we want now for what we want eventually. The 7 Habits move mentally, physically, and emotionally from dependence, you doing for me, to Independence, I can do it, to interdependence, we do it together to achieve our greatest success. Society mistakenly puts dependence on a pedestal. Private victories precede public victories. What you are impacts every interdependent interaction. Don’t kill the goose that gives you golden egges. Effectiveness comes from the P PC balance. The first P stands for Production of desired results, the PC stands for Production Capability.
Disc three summary
The P PC balance is particularly important as it applies to the human aspect of an organization: the customers the employees and suppliers. The PC principal is always treat your employees exactly as you would want them to treat your best customers. You can buy a person’s hand and back but you can’t buy their heart or brain: enthusiasm, loyalty, creativity, Ingenuity, resourcefulness, effeciency and devotion. Treat your employees as volunteers just you would your customers because they volunteered their hearts and their minds.
