Waiting is hardly ever a good success strategy…

Money is a good servant but a bad master.” ~ Sir Francis Bacon,

“Success leaves clues.  People who succeed at the highest level are not lucky; they’re doing something differently than everyone else does.” ~ Tony Robbins

“Knowing information is not the same as owning it and following through.  Information without execution is poverty.  Remember: we’re drowning in information, but we’re starving for wisdom.” ~ Tony Robbins,

 

“The best way to get a result, the fastest way, is to find someone who has already accomplished what you’re after, and model his or her behavior.  If you know someone who used to be overweight but has kept himself fit and healthy for a decade, model that person!  You have a friend who used to be miserable in her relationship and now is passionate and in love for ten years going?  Model her.  You meet someone who started with nothing and has developed wealth and sustained it through time?  Learn from those strategies!  These people aren’t lucky.  They’re simply doing something different than you are in this area of life.” ~ Tony Robbins

“Disappointment is inevitable when you are attempting to do anything of great scale.  Instead, let your disappointments drive you to find new answers; discipline your disappointments.  Learn from every failure, act on those learnings, and success become inevitable.” ~ Tony Robbins,

 

“You’re already a financial trader.  You might not think of it in just this way, but if you work for a living, you’re trading your time for money.  Frankly, it’s just about the worst trade you can make.  Why?  You can always get more money, but you can’t get more time.” ~ Tony Robbins,

Is what you’re upset about REALLY worth being upset about?

 

“Time is short, my strength is limited, the office is a horror, the apartment is noisy, and if a pleasant, straightforward life is not possible then one must try to wriggle through by subtle maneuvers.” ~ Franz Kafka,

 

“Eventually, happiness was just a speck on the horizon, way off in the distance.  The closer I got, the farther I had to go.  Turns out that I’d been running as fast as I could in the wrong direction.  Oops.  The stuff wasn’t doing its job; it wasn’t making me happy.  Depression set in when I no longer had time for a life outside of work, laboring eighty hours a week just to pay for the stuff that wasn’t making me happy.  I didn’t have time for anything I wanted to do: no time to write, no time to read, no time to relax, no time for my closest relationships.  I didn’t even have time to have a cup of coffee with a friend, to listen to his stories.  I realized that I didn’t control my time, and thus I didn’t control my own life.  It was a shocking realization.” ~ The Minimalists,

“One of the greatest regrets in life is being what others would want you to be, rather than being yourself.”
