Our deepest fear by Marianne Williamson

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?

You are a child of God.
Your playing small doesn’t serve the world.
There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone.

And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.  As we are liberated from our fear; our presence automatically liberates others.

The secret of getting things done is: DO IT NOW!

As long as you live, never say to yourself “DO IT NOW!” unless you immediately follow through with desirable action. 
Now is the time to act.
Now is the time to be happy.

Thoughts to Ponder, By E.T. Gurney

People are unreasonable, illogical, self-centered. 

Love them anyway.

If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish motives. 

Do good anyway.

If you are successful, you will win false friends and real enemies.

Try to be successful anyway.

The good you do will be forgotten tomorrow. 

Do good anyway.

Honesty and frankness will make you vulnerable. 

Be honest and frank anyway.

People favor the underdog, but they chum up to the top dog.

 Fight for the underdog anyway.

What you spend years building can be destroyed overnight. 

Build anyway.

Give the world the best you have and chances are you will get kicked in the teeth. 

Give it anyway.

The Challenge

Let others lead small lives, but not you.

Let others argue over small things, but not you. 

Let others cry over small hurts, but not you. 

Let others leave their future in someone else’s hands, but not you.

An intelligent man reads to acquire knowledge, but a foolish man avoids reading and will waste his time and yours, too.     Mr. Motivator
“I’ve traveled around the world.  I’ve learned how to eliminate stress and enjoy myself.  I’ve become abreast of the facts and educated myself simply by reading.    Mr. Motivator
“Visualize this thing you want.  See it, feel it, believe in it.  Make your mental blueprint and begin.”      Robert Collier

My Dad took me and my siblings to the library when we were small children.  It was there; I met and left with my first love, A Book.  I will always be grateful to my Dad for encouraging me to read.”    Katheryn Jeffery

The kind of freedom I like, By Paul J. Meyer

I met a man the other day who said the national government is so concerned about the welfare of every citizen that anyone who objects to it is a fool.  I must be a fool.  And I’ll tell you what kind of fool I am.  I think the acid test of any democratic government is the degree of effective liberty it makes available to the individual.  That criterion establishes the order of values.  All other things are relegated to lower orders of priority.

Simply stated, these are my beliefs; I have a no-limitations belief in people; I’ve never met a person I did not think possessed a tremendous untapped potential.  I’ve never met a person who did not possess a capacity that could be developed, a sleeping giant that could be awakened.

Through the same line of reasoning, I have a no-limitations belief in myself.  This isn’t egotism; it’s self-confidence.  My confidence is based on know-how, and know-how comes from experience – experience that has been gained by submitting myself to obstacles and circumstances that made other people hesitate.

I have a no-limitations belief in potentials and possibilities, the combination of people and ideas.

I want to be in business for myself.  I want to operate my own business…write my own paycheck…come and go as I please.  I want to control my own time.

I want to select my own physician and dentist.  And if hospitalization is necessary, I want to choose the institution where I’ll be treated.

I want to live in any town or city of my choice.  The sole consideration will be my family’s happiness, and the opportunity to make a contribution to the community. 

I want to design, build, and decorate my own house. 

Finally, I believe that the Bill of Rights was not designed for corporations or government bureaus; it was designed for free people.  Protecting individuals from the state has not destroyed the state; it has merely forced government to live with the democratic process.

The greatest natural resource of our nation is its people.  It follows inescapably that the primary national goal to be pursued at all levels…federal, state, local, and private…should be the development:  of each individual to his fullest potential.

If this belief is foolish…then that’s the kind of fool I am.

Motivating Words to sell by

“I’m proud of my record.  Proud of my willingness to do what I know must be done.  Proud of the fact that I am a SHAKER, BREAKER and DOER!” 
“Positive attitudes create a chain of positive thoughts.”
“Enthusiasm…a little thing that makes a Big difference!”
“Successful people depend on six words:  Find a need and fill it.”

“Successful people seem to find time for all the important things they want to do.” 

-          Author Unknown –

I’d rather have 1% of the effort of 100 people than 100% of my own effort.” 
“The #1 guideline to success is you must be in business for yourself.  When you work for someone else, you sell your time at wholesale to your employer, who then re-sells it at retail to the customer.”
- J. Paul Getty
