More quotes about:

You should never share your goals with anyone unless you know they not only believe you can reach the goals but they want you to reach them. Others decide not to commit their goals to paper so if they don't quite "make it," they will have the built-in explanation that they didn't really fail because they never set those goals. This is a safer and even a "no risk" approach for them that guarantees they will not reach a fraction of their potential. Zig Ziglar Quote Details

Napoleon Hill Quote Details

More quotes about:

The majority of people permit relatives, friends, and the public at large to so influence them that they cannot live their own lives, because they fear criticism. Napoleon Hill Quote Details

You must constantly ask yourself these questions: Who am I around? What are they doing to me? What have they got me reading? What have they got me saying? Where do they have me going?

More quotes about:

There's an imbalance between encouragement and discouragement like that between gaining and losing money. Most people overvalue negative amounts of money: they'll work much harder to avoid losing a dollar than to gain one.

Paul Graham Quote Details

More quotes about:

Given our human impulse to pick up the habits and energy of others, you can use that knowledge to literally program your brain the way you want. Simply find the people who most represent what you would like to become and spend as much time with them as you can without trespassing, kidnapping, or stalking. Their good habits and good energy will rub off on you. Scott Adams Quote Details
