Arnold Schwarzenegger

The mind is incredible. Once you have gained mastery over it by channelling its powers positively for your purposes, you can do anything.
The secret is to make you mind work for you- not against you.
This means constantly being positive, constantly setting challenges that you can meet, either today, next week or next year.
I can’t, should be stricken, permanently, from your vocabulary; especially the vocabulary of your thoughts.
You should see yourself always as growing and improving.

Dale Carnegie

“How to win friends and influence people"
The following quote is the essence of the book:
“There is one all-important law of human conduct. If we obey that law, we shall almost never get into trouble. In fact, that law, if obeyed, will bring us countless friends and constant happiness. But the very instant we break the law, we shall get into endless trouble. The law is this: Always make the other person feel important.”

Napoleon Hill

Before success comes in any man’s life, he is sure to meet with much temporary defeat, and, perhaps, some failure. When defeat overtakes a man, the easiest and most logical thing to do is to quit. That is exactly what the majority of men do.
More than five hundred of the most successful men this country has ever known told the author their greatest success came just one step beyond the point at which defeat had overtaken them.

An educated man is not, necessarily, one who has an abundance of general or specialized knowledge. An educated man is one who has so developed the faculties of his mind that he may acquire anything he wants, or its equivalent, without violating the rights of others.

A strong person cannot help a weaker one, the weaker is willing to be helped.
And even then the weak must become strong by themselves; they must, by their own efforts, develop the strength which they admire in others.

“I believe in evidence. I believe in observation, measurement, and reasoning, confirmed by independent observers.
I'll believe anything, no matter how wild and ridiculous, if there is evidence for it.
The wilder and more ridiculous something is, however, the firmer and more solid the evidence will have to be.”

James Allen

"Good thoughts and actions can never produce bad results; bad thoughts and actions can never produce good results..."
We understand this law in the natural world, and work with it; but few understand it in the mental and moral world—although its operation there, is just as simple and undeviating—and they, therefore, do not cooperate with it.

Don't accept the limitations that were imposed upon you by others and by yourself as you grew up.
You can, and should, consciously be rewiring your subconscious mind to build into it more progressive thoughts about who you are and what you are capable of.

James Allen

“(Your) mind may be likened to a garden, which may be intelligently cultivated or allowed to run wild; but whether cultivated or neglected, it must, and will, bring forth. If no useful seeds are put into it, then an abundance of useless weed seeds will fall therein, and will continue to produce their kind.”

Brian Tracey

Decide exactly what you want in every key area of your life.
Start off by Idealizing.
Imagine that there are no limitations on what you can be, have or do.
Imagine that you have all the time and money, all the friends and contacts, all the education and experience that you need to accomplish any goal you can set for yourself.
Imagine that you could wave a magic wand and make your life perfect.
If your life was perfect in each area, what would it look like?

Adam Smith

Every individual necessarily labours to render the annual revenue of the society as great as he can. He generally, indeed, neither intends to promote the public interest, nor knows how much he is promoting it.
By preferring the support of domestic to that of foreign industry, he intends only his own security; and by directing that industry in such a manner as its produce may be of the greatest value, he intends only his own gain, and he is in this, as in many other cases, led by an invisible hand to promote an end which was no part of his intention.
Nor is it always the worse for the society that it was no part of it. By pursuing his own interest he frequently promotes that of the society more effectually than when he really intends to promote it.
I have never known much good done by those who affected to trade for the public good.

Adam Smith

Charles Darwin

“Seeing that variations useful to man have undoubtedly occurred, and that other variations useful in some way to each being, in the great and complex battle of life, should occur, in the course of many successive generations; if such do occur, can we doubt (remembering that many more individuals are born than can possibly survive), that individuals having any advantage, however slight, over others, would have the best chance of surviving and procreating their kind?
On the other hand, we may feel sure that any variation, in the least degree injurious, would be rigidly destroyed.
This preservation of favourable individual differences and variations, and the simultaneous destruction of those which are injurious, I have called Natural Selection!”

Chris Farmer Corporate coach

You are defined by your goals
And your team is defined by its goal. The goal, (The target, objective or vision) is vital, as it “sets the terms” for everything else. Everything the team does should be in furtherance of The Goal.
In addition, the team should avoid doing anything that does not contribute to the achievement of the goal.
