Guaranteeing Your Small Business Success
There is a vitality, a life force, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and be lost. The world will not have it.
It is not your business to determine how good it is, nor how valuable it is, nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep open and aware directly to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open.
No artist is pleased . . . there is no satisfaction whatever at any time. There is only a queer, divine dissatisfaction; a blessed unrest that keeps us marching and makes us more alive than others.
- Martha Graham
I learned how to be with people in such a way that it was okay for them to be with me.
- Bill Elbring
To offer no resistance to life is to be in a state of grace, ease, and lightness. This state is not dependent upon things being a certain way, good, or bad. Watch any animal and let it teach you acceptance of what is. Observe its surrender to the Now. Let it teach you Being.
- Eckhart Tolle
If you think you are too small to have an impact, try going to bed with a mosquito.
- Anita Roddick
All our successes are the same. All our failures, too. We succeed when we do something remarkable. We fail when we give up too soon.
- Seth Godin
Authentic success is living by your own lights.
- Sarah Ban Breathnach
I've always believed that if you put in the work, the results will come. I don't do things half-heartedly. Because I know if I do, then I can expect half-hearted results.
- Michael Jordan
No one gets an iron-clad guarantee of success. Certainly, factors like opportunity, luck and timing are important. But the backbone of success is usually found in old-fashioned, basic concepts like hard work, determination, good planning and perseverance.
- Mia Hamm
I found that every single successful person I've ever spoken to has had a turning point. The turning point was when they made a clear, specific, unequivocal decision that they were not going to live like this anymore; they were going to achieve success. Some people make that decision at 15 and some people make it at 50, and most people never make it all.
If you can dream it, you can achieve it.
Create a definite plan for carrying out your desire and begin at once, whether you are ready or not, to put this plan into action.
Life is not easy for any of us. But what of that?
Training your mind is what it all boils down to.
Wisdom is knowing what to do next, skill is knowing how to do it, and virtue is doing it.
—David Starr Jordan
Life rewards effort exponentially. No matter how small the effort, nor how challenging the odds.
Six essential qualities that are the key to success: Sincerity, personal integrity, humility, courtesy, wisdom, charity.
When you are just interested in something, you do it only when it is convenient. When you are committed, you accept only results, not excuses.
It’s not the employer who pays wages—he only handles the money. It is the product that pays wages.
I will act as if what I do makes a difference.
Be there, go there now and never leave. Imagine that your dreams have already come true. Live your life from that mindset; predicate your behavior on that reality, not the illusions that now surround you. Filter every thought, question and answer from there. Let your focus shift and be born again.
Because dwelling from, not upon, the space you want to inherit, is the fastest way to change absolutely everything.
See the difference?
How committed are you? There is a remarkable difference between a commitment of 99% and 100%.
The most basic rule of survival in any situation is "never look like food.”
—Park Ranger, Great Smoky Mountains National Park
You simply decide everything, moment to moment.
Next decision please –
People become really quite remarkable when they start thinking that they can do things. When they believe in themselves they have the first secret of success.
—Norman Vincent Peale
There is one quality that one must possess to win, and that is definiteness of purpose, the knowledge of what one wants, and a burning desire to possess it.
— Napoleon Hill
Launch and release.
When your desires are strong enough you will appear to possess superhuman powers to achieve.
Reduce your workload by 30% and increase your fun load by 30%. And you will increase your revenues by 100%. And you will increase your productivity by 10,000%. (If there could be such a percentage.) More fun, less struggle -- more results on all fronts.
Words are the least part of communication; energy and action speak far more truly.
It's like once you're prepared, truly prepared to carry on for as long as it takes, you'll quickly find, as all movers and shakers have before you, that it doesn't take long at all.
Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.
Self-confidence is the first requisite to great undertakings.
Of all the things that matter, that really and truly matter, working more efficiently and getting more done, is not one of them.
Everything you buy, think, say, and do is a statement of what you believe you're worth.
If you could choose the easy way or the fun way, which would you choose?
When you accept one hundred percent responsibility for your experience, you gain one hundred percent of the power to create the experience you would choose.
When the going gets tough, isn't it enough to remember that calm, peace, and happiness always return - for you and all those you love? That you will breath freely again. That you will stand tall again.
Forget past mistakes. Forget failures. Forget everything except what you're going to do now and do it.
When you focus upon anything at all, it's like a call goes out to every corner of the Universe, summoning ideas, strength, courage, insight, resources, and whatever else is needed to complete the laser beam of your concentration. If it's an answer you need, it will be forthcoming. If it's a choice you have to make, your options are calculated and recalculated under each scenario. If circumstances need to be arranged then every soul on the planet is consulted. And if it's help you need... we're already there.
Our life is what our thoughts make it.
See it all as easy and so it must become.
The more you let go, the faster you will move ahead.
Rather than sweating to manage your image, manage your fear and insecurity thoughts that tell you that you have to get people to like you.
The best way to escape from a problem is to solve it.
