“Be inspired by great men lives through their famous passages”

“When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds: Your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great, and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and your discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be.”

How Our Attitude Affects Us

Our attitude at the beginning of a job will affect the outcome of the job more that anything else.

“Ability is what you're capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it.” Lou Holtz

Our attitude toward life determines life's attitude toward us.

The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, the education, the money, than circumstances, than failure, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company... a church... a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past... we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. And so it is with you... we are in charge of our Attitudes.

“I believe the single most significant decision I can make on a day-to-day basis is my choice of attitude. It is more important than my past, my education, my bankroll, my successes or failures, fame or pain, what other people think of me or say about me, my circumstances, or my position. Attitude keeps me going or cripples my progress. It alone fuels my fire or assaults my hope. When my attitudes are right, there is no barrier too high, no valley too deep, no dream too extreme, no challenge too great for me.”

“The problem is not the problem; the problem is your attitude about the problem”

Our attitude toward others will determine their attitude toward us.

“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.” Brian Tracy

Before we can achieve the kind of life we want, we must think, act, walk, talk, and conduct ourselves in ways characteristic of who we ultimately wish to become.

“It's easy to let life deteriorate into making a living instead of making a life. It's not the hours you put in, but what you out into the hours that count. Learn to express rather than impress. Expressing evokes a ''me too'' attitude while impressing evokes a ''so what'' attitude.” Jim Rohn

The higher we go in any organization of value, the better the attitude we'll find.

“Take charge of your attitude. Don't let someone else choose it for you.”

Holding successful, positive thoughts in our minds will make all the difference in the world.

“Attitude is the way you mentally look at the world around you. It is how you view your environment and your future. It is the focus you develop toward life itself.”

If we always make a person feel needed, important, and appreciated, he or she will return this attitude to us.

“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.” Brian Tracy

Part of a good attitude is to look for the best in new ideas. So look for good ideas everywhere. We will find in the most wonderful places: on the bumpers of cars, on restaurant menus, in books, in travel, out of the innocent mouths of children.

“Good work habits help develop an internal toughness and a self-confident attitude that will sustain you through every adversity and temporary discouragement.” Paul J. Fleyer

Don't broadcast personal problems. it probably won't help you, and it cannot help others.

Don't talk about your health unless it's good.

“Our attitude towards others determines their attitude towards us.” Earl Nightingale



Radiate the attitude of well-being. Don't be embarrassed to share visions, desires, and goals.

“How you look at a situation is very important, for how you think about a problem may defeat you before you ever do anything about it. When you get discouraged or depressed, try changing your attitude from negative to positive and see how life can change for you. Remember, your attitude toward a situation can help you to change it -- you create the very atmosphere for defeat or victory.” Franco Harris

Treat everyone with whom you come in contact as a fellow member of the human race-with all the rights, duties, and privileges thereof. The Golden Rule still applies: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

“Every issue, belief, attitude or assumption is precisely the issue that stands between you and your relationship to another human being; and between you and yourself.”

Things You Need To Know About Failure


1. To fail is not the same as being a failure.
You may have many feelings and yet still be far from being a failure.


“The only real failure in life is the failure to try.”

2. To fail is not the disgrace everyone thinks it is.
To make a mistake is to do nothing more than to join the human race.

“Failure is the tuition you pay for success.”

3. Failure is only a temporary setback.
Failure is never the final chapter of the book of your life unless you give up and quit.

“Forget about the consequences of failure. Failure is only a temporary change in direction to set you straight for your next success.” Denis Waitley

4. Nothing worthwhile is ever achieved without running the risk of failure.
The man who risks everything to try to achieve something truly worthwhile and fails is anything but a disgraceful failure.

“When we think of failure; Failure will be ours. If we remain undecided; Nothing will ever change. All we need to do is want to achieve something great and then simply to do it. Never think of failure For what we think, will come about.” Maharishi Mahesh

5. Failure is a natural preparation for success.
Strange as it may seem to some of you, success is much more difficult to live with successfully than is failure.

“Success builds character, failure reveals it” Dave Checkett

6. Every failing brings with it the possibilities of something greater.
Analyze failure under whatever circumstances you choose, and you will discover some seeds for turning failure into success.

“Life's real failure is when you do not realize how close you were to success when you gave up.”

7. What you do with failures in your life is up to you.
Failure is either a blessing or a curse, depending upon the individual's reaction or response to it.

“Think twice before you speak, because your words and influence will plant the seed of either success or failure in the mind of another.” Napoleon Hill

8. Failing are opportunities to learn how to do things better the next time - to learn where the pitfalls are and how to avoid them.
The best possible thing to do with failure is to learn all you can from it.

“Remember that failure is an event, not a person”
