Norman Vincent Peale
We struggle with the complexities and avoid the simplicities.
Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy
Throw your heart over the fence and the rest will follow.
Do not be awe struck by other people and try to copy them. Nobody can be you as efficiently as you can.
If you paint in your mind a picture of bright and happy expectations, you put yourself into a condition conducive to your goal.
Change your thoughts and you change your world.
There is real magic in enthusiasm. It spells the difference between mediocrity and accomplishment.
Think enthusiastically about everything; but especially about your job. If you do, you'll put a touch of glory in your life. If you love your job with enthusiasm, you'll shake it to pieces. You'll love it into greatness.
Formulate and stamp indelibly on your mind a mental picture of yourself as succeeding. Hold this picture tenaciously. Never permit it to fade. Your mind will seek to develop the picture...Do not build up obstacles in your imagination.
Any fact facing us is not as important as our attitude toward it, for that determines our success or failure. The way you think about a fact may defeat you before you ever do anything about it. You are overcome by the fact because you think you are.
