Here’s the key to success and the key to failure:
We become what we think about.
Now, let me repeat that.
We become what we think about. – Earl Nightingale

  • “Men simply don’t think!”Nobel Prize-winning Dr. Albert Schweitzer
  • A man is what he thinks about all day long.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
  • “Everything comes if a man will only wait. I have brought myself by long meditation to the conviction that a human being with a settled purpose must accomplish it, and that nothing can resist a will that will stake even existence for its fulfillment.”Disraeli
  • “A man’s life is what his thoughts make of it.”Marcus Aurelius, the great Roman Emperor
  • “Our doubts are traitors, and make us lose the good we oft might win, by fearing to attemptWilliam Shakespeare
  • William James
    • “We need only in cold blood act as if the thing in question were real, and it will become infallibly real by growing into such a connection with our life that it will become real. It will become so knit with habit and emotion that our interests in it will be those which characterize belief.”
    • “If you only care enough for a result, you will almost certainly attain it. If you wish to be rich, you will be rich; if you wish to be learned, you will be learned; if you wish to be good, you will be good. Only you must, then, really wish these things, and wish them exclusively, and not wish at the same time a hundred other incompatible things just as strongly.”
    • “The greatest discovery of my generation is that human beings can alter their lives by altering their attitudes of mind.”
