Don't just read the easy stuff. You may be entertained by it, but you will never grow from it.
You must take personal responsibility. You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, or the wind, but you can change yourself. That is something you have charge of.
Character isn't something you were born with and can't change, like your fingerprints. It's something you weren't born with and must take responsibility for forming.
Either you run the day or the day runs you.
You don't get paid for the hour. You get paid for the value you bring to the hour.
Let others lead small lives, but not you. Let others argue over small things, but not you. Let others cry over small hurts, but not you. Let others leave their future in someone else's hands, but not you.
Without a sense of urgency, desire loses its value.
Success is steady progress toward one's personal goals
If you are not willing to risk the unusual, you will have to settle for the ordinary.
Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment.
Take care of your body. It's the only place you have to live.
You cannot change your destination overnight, but you can change your direction overnight
Effective communication is 20% what you know and 80% how you feel about what you know.
There are only 3 colors, 10 digits, and 7 notes; its what we do with them that's important.
Success is neither magical nor mysterious. Success is the natural consequence of consistently applying the basic fundamentals.
Work harder on yourself than you do on your job.
Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present.
The major reason for setting a goal is for what it makes of you to accomplish it. What it makes of you will always be the far greater value than what you get.
If you don't design your own life plan, chances are you'll fall into someone else's plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much.
Get around people who have something of value to share with you. Their impact will continue to have a significant effect on your life long they have departed.
If you go to work on your goals, your goals will go to work on you. If you go to work on your plan, your plan will go to work on you. Whatever good things we build end up building us.
