Make a conscious effort to surround yourself with positive, nourishing, and uplifting people -- people who believe in you, encourage you to go after your dreams, and applaud your victories.— Jack Canfield
The most gorgeous Jack Canfield quotes that are glad to read
Persistence is probably the single most common quality of high achievers.
They simply refuse to give up. They longer you hang in there, the greater the chance that something will happen in your favor. No matter how hard it seems, the longer you persist the more likely your success.
You only have control over three things in your life - the thoughts you think, the images you visualize, and the actions you take (your behavior). How you use these three things determines everything you experience. If you don't like what you are producing and experiencing, you have to change your responses.
Most everything that you want is just outside your comfort zone.
Everything you want, is out there waiting for you to ask. Everything you want also wants you. But you have to take action to get it.
You don't have to get it perfect, you just have to get it going.
Babies don't walk the first time they try, but eventually they get it right
When you're nice to people, they want to be nice back to you.
There are essentially two things that will make you wise -- the books you read and the people you meet.
Don't worry about failures, worry about the chances you miss when you don't even try.
Everything you want is out there waiting for you to ask.
Everything you want also wants you. But you have to take action to get it.
Everything you want is on the other side of fear.
The bottom line is that you are the one who is creating your life the way it is.
The life you currently live is the result of all your past thoughts and actions. You are in charge of your current thoughts and your present feelings.
Decide what you want. Believe you can have it. Believe you deserve it and believe it's possible for you.
People who ask confidently get more than those who are hesitant and uncertain.
When you've figured out what you want to ask for, do it with certainty, boldness and confidence.
Super-successf ul people aren’t the most gifted people in their fields.
They just work, study and practice more than the competition.
Don't worry about failures, worry about the chances you miss when you don't even try.
There is no perfect time to start. You do not have to know everything to get going. Just get into the game. You will learn by doing.
Gratitude is the single most important ingredient to living a successful and fulfilled life.
Part of paying the price is the willingness to do whatever it takes to get the job done. It comes from a declaration that you are going to get it done no matter what it takes, no matter how long it takes, no matter what comes up.
Most of life is on-the-job training. Some of the most important things can only be learned in the process of doing them. You do something and you get feedback - about what works and what doesn't. If you don't do anything for fear of doing it wrong, poorly, or badly, you never get any feedback, and therefore you never get to improve.
Everything you want is on the other side of fear
If you love your work, if you enjoy it, you're already a success.
Practice random acts of kindness and senseless acts of beauty.
Repeating an affirmation several times a day keeps you focused on your goal, strengthens your motivation, and programs your subconscious by sending an order to your crew to do whatever it takes to make that goal happen.
What others think about you is none of your business.
I like Dr. Daniel Amen's 18/40/60 Rule: When you're 18, you worry about what everybody is thinking of you; when you're 40, you don't give a darn what anybody thinks of you; when you're 60, you realize nobody's been thinking about you at all.
Most of us have never allowed ourselves to want what we truly want because we can't see how it's going to manifest.
Simply put, the Law of Attraction states that you will attract into your life whatever you focus on. Whatever you give your energy and attention to will come back to you. So, if you stay focused on the good and positive things in your life, you will automatically attract more good and positive things into your life.
Negative feelings are like weeds. If you don't fully extract them (i.e. pull out the roots), they will come back.
If you are going to be successful, you need to give up the phrase, "I can't" & all of its cousins, such as "I wish I were able to.
The things that bring you the greatest joy are in alignment with your purpose.
Self-esteem does not mean feeling good all the time.
Self-esteem means loving yourself even when you feel badly...even when you make a mistake. It means loving yourself even when you're depressed. It means that you accept yourself fully.
Remember, it is not about luck. It is about doing the right things the right way.
Greater self-esteem produces greater success, and greater success produces more high self-esteem, so it keeps on spiraling up.
Successful people maintain a positive focus in life no matter what is going on around them. They stay focused on their past successes rather than their past failures, and on the next action steps they need to take to get them closer to the fulfillment of their goals rather than all the other distractions that life presents to them.
Don't just sit there (and complain), do something.
The biggest rewards in life are found outside your comfort zone.
Live with it. Fear and risk are prerequisites if you want to enjoy a life of success and adventure.
Every time you take a risk or move out of your comfort zone, you have a great opportunity to learn more about yourself and your capacity.
There is only one person responsible for the quality of life you live and that person is you.
I'm a big believer in growth. Life is not about achievement, it's about learning and growth, and developing qualities like compassion, patience, perseverance, love, and joy, and so forth. And so if that is the case, then I think our goals should include something which stretches us.
I teach something called The Law of Probabilities, which says the more things you try, the more likely one of them will work. The more books you read, the more likely one of them will have an answer to a question that could solve the major problems of your life.. make you wealthier, solve a health problem, whatever it might be.
One of the things that may get in the way of people .
.. is that they're not in touch with their passion. If you're passionate about what it is you do, then you're going to be looking for everything you can to get better at it.
High self-esteem isn't a luxury. It's a necessity for anyone who has important goals to achieve.
Almost everything we'll ever do in life that is really powerful, that really produces a result in our lives, that quantum-leaps us to a new level... requires us to do something uncomfortable.
If you want to be really successful, and I know you do, then you will have to give up blaming and complaining and take total responsibility for your life -- that means all your results, both your successes and your failures. That is the prerequisite for creating a life of success.
I've always believed in God. I remember once a guy asked me what it was like to be self-employed. I said, I'm not self employed. I work for God. The pay is good; He works me hard.
Change is inevitable in life. You can either resist it and potentially get run over by it, or you can choose to cooperate with it, adapt to it, and learn how to benefit from it. When you embrace change you will begin to see it as an opportunity for growth.
To achieve your dreams, work is required. Suffering is optional.
A recent management study revealed that 46% of employees leaving a company do so because they feel underappreciated; 61% said their bosses don't place much importance on them as people, and 88% said they do not receive acknowledgement for the work they do.
Now, when anything 'bad' happens, I remember that everything that ever happens to me has within it the seeds of something better. I look for the upside rather than the downside. I ask myself, 'Where's the greater benefit in this event?'
I believe people should live full lives and not settle for anything less.
It's surprising how many people get bogged down in analysing, planning, and organizing when what they really need to do is take action.
It is only by acknowledging that you have created everything up until now that you can take charge of creating the future you want.
Write your goals down in detail and read your list of goals every day.
Some goals may entail a list of shorter goals. Losing a lot of weight, for example, should include mini-goals, such as 10-pound milestones. This will keep your subconscious mind focused on what you want step by step.
I believe the principles and techniques in this book, Nonviolent Communication: A Language of Life, can literally change the world, but more importantly, they can change the quality of your life with your spouse, your children, your neighbors, your co-workers and everyone else you interact with. I cannot recommend it highly enough.
