The best rule to use when criticism springs to your mind is wait… wait a while and try to look for the reasons behind the act you’re criticizing. It’s also a good time to ask oneself ‘Who am I to be criticizing others? Am I really all that great and pure and all-knowing and perfect?’ By all means wait until the heat of anger has dissipated. This is one of the world’s most difficult things to do and it takes a very mature person to master the wisdom and self-control to withhold criticism. But it’s the way to greatness and one of the best-known ways to earn the respect and or love of others.
That quote up there ☝ is by far one of the greatest quotes I’ve ever heard from Earl Nightingale.
If you’re worried about your income or your future, you’re concentrating on the wrong end of the scale. Look at the other end. Concern yourself only with increasing your service. With becoming great where you are, and your income and your future will take care of themselves. – Earl Nightingale.
There are many people you will love, and there are not necessarily the same people that you will make a life with. Are you looking for a love story or are you looking for a life story? – Esther Perel
Become a good reader. Say one book might save you 5 years Did you know these books on how to be stronger, more decisive, be a speaker, be a leader, have a better effect on other people, develop your personality. Did you there are books on that? and people don’t read them. Did you know that hundreds of successful people have written their stories in books and they wrote them how they did it and people don’t read it? How would you explain that? – Jim Rohn
If you forgive a person, but you hang on to the anger., the pain and the hurt and you say you forgave the person, you don’t understand what forgiveness really is. Forgiveness is not for the other person, it’s for you. – Steve Harvey
The greatest people on the planet have suffered the most. Suffering is not bad. I’m suggesting, suffering is awesome. The ego runs from suffering because it’s the death of the ego. But I believe that pain, difficult times, failure, loss… is purification and preparation for personal heroism. – Anonymous
I want to tell all of you that are out there chasing a dream to keep chasing it. I know right now, you might feel alone, you might feel that it’s just you out there doing it. That everyone thinks you’re crazy. People are talking bad about you; your family is worried about you (bless their heart). Let them worry about you.
Let me tell you something. I want you to hear me. Yes you! You were born to do something great with your life! That got it. You were. You’re not average or ordinary. There’s a part of your heart that wants to be somebody so badly. That wants to make a difference for other people. That wants to win. That wants to accomplish something great. And guess what? God didn’t put that dream in your heart like some joke. It’s not a hallucination. You’re not crazy. – Ed Mylett
You can do what you put your mind to. And if you continue to put your mind to it, the game opens up new levels. – Kevin Hart
You cannot be great if you cannot operate in chaos. That’s my life! Because if you can operate with chaos, the world becomes Disneyland. Problems becomes scratches. – Anonymous
They said that ‘money changes people’. It really doesn’t. Do you know what I’ve learned about money? Money don’t change people. Money allows you to be more of who you really are. If you are a kind person, when you get a lot of money, you become a kinder person. If you’re an asshole, when you get a lot of money, you become a bigger asshole. Money allows you to amplify whoever you really are. – Steve Harvey
If you let people’s perception of you dictate your behavior, you’ll never grow as a person. But if you leave yourself open, to experience, despite what else think – then, you will learn and grow. – Anonymous
Your mind has to be stronger than your feelings. Your mind has to be stronger than your feelings. Think about every poor decision you’ve made in your life. There was more emotion that was involved in it that there was mind. Every single one of them Think about it. Your feelings keep you in bed. Your mind tells you, get up! Think about it. – Anonymous
Sometimes you’re the smartest guy in the room. You don’t want anybody know it. Let them think you’re a dummy you don’t know anything. There are other times when you’re not the smartest guy in the room, but if you keep your mouth shut, nobody knows that. They don’t know it so you let them talk, commit themselves. By the time they’re finished, then you can become the smartest guy in the room because they told you everything. – Anonymous
You only have two ways to make a first impression. One: How you look. Two: What comes out in your mouth. A lot of guys can look the part… But as soon as they open their mouth, (they you know) they engage in a self-sabotaging activity. – Dan Peña
Feeling stuck is a signal that you’ve stopped growing. That’s it. And when most people feel stuck, since they don’t understand that’s tied to a fundamental need for growth. We believe it’s an existential crisis and we blow up our lives. For most human beings, what actually will get you feeling like you’re not stuck is having something in the future that you’re looking forward to or taking class where you’re learning something or changing a routine so that you try a new class at the gym. Learning anything gets you back in touch with the fundamental need, it makes you start to feel that things are moving, and from that place, a feeling a little bit empowered. You’ll be able to make better decisions about what big things need to change in your life. – Mel Robbins
Always say less than necessary. By talking too much, in a meeting or in any kind of situation, you make people inadvertently smell weakness on you. A lot of communication between humans is not verbal. We feel we scent something from you and it communicates and we have an impression: and people who took a lot, generally give an impression of they don’t know how to control themselves. Whereas people who kind of say a little bit less (you know) who can speak in riddles almost… (say that’s great I’ll think about it or whatever) gives often an impression of power. As if they know more than they actually do. – Anonymous
You are not stuck. You can begin to make changes by changing the way you think. And above all, go to the mirror and look in your eyes and say I love you… I really really love you. It will work miracles. – Barbara Corcoran
It doesn’t matter where you are in life. It really doesn’t. Because the great thing about life is… it’s always your NEXT MOVE. Your next move that counts. No matter where you are. You can change your life if you want to. It’s always your NEXT DECISION. – Anonymous
And if I can leave you with anything, I want to leave you with this. Hear me clearly when I say this: There are people who come in your life sometimes to be there for a season. They won’t meant to be there always. Sometimes we find ourselves hooked up with people that we think are there for a lifetime, but they were only supposed to be there for a season. There are people who come in your life like boosters for your rocket. If you haven’t watched a rocket going into space, the boosters fall off when it reaches a certain altitude. Some people are not equipped to handle the altitude that you’re going to. So, don’t be afraid when they fall off, they’re not bad people. They just couldn’t go where you’re going. – Tyler Perry
If you’re still excited about what you did five years ago, you’re not growing today. I’ve got a lot of accomplishments in my life and I look back and I said ‘that was nice’. But can I tell you something? I live in the moment, (I live in… hey hey) That was good but today is better. And just constantly just constantly stretch. Don’t ask yourself how long will it take? Ask yourself how far can I go?
Get comfortable being uncomfortable. – Dan Peña
Sometimes, when you are in a dark place, you think you’ve been buried but actually you’ve been planted. – Anonymous
