Quotes on Achievement and Goals by Brian Tracy

Goals in writing are dreams with deadlines.

An average person with average talent, ambition and education, can outstrip the most brilliant genius in our society, if that person has clear, focused goals.

The establishment of a clear, central purpose or goal in life is the starting point of all success.

Rewrite your major goals every day, in the present tense, exactly as if they already existed.

Success equals goals; all else is commentary.

Committing your goals to paper increases the likelihood of your achieving them by one thousand percent!

Brian Tracy Decision, Desire and Belief Quotes

I found every single successful person I've ever spoken to had a turning point. The turning point was when they made a clear, specific unequivocal decision that they were not going to live like this anymore; they were going to achieve success. Some people make that decision at 15 and some people make it at 50, and most people never make it all.

Resolve to pay any price or make any sacrifice to get into the top ten percent of your field. That payoff is incredible!

Every great leap forward in your life comes after you have made a clear decision of some kind.

Whatever you believe with emotions becomes your reality. You always act in a manner consistent with your innermost beliefs and convictions.

Think before you act and then act decisively. Fortune favors the brave.

Excellence Quotes by Brian Tracy

The future belongs to the competent. It belongs to those who are very, very good at what they do. It does not belong to the well-meaning.

One of the best uses of your time is to increase your competence in your key result areas.

The foundation of lasting self-confidence and self esteem is excellence, mastery of your work.

People create their own success by learning what they need to learn and then by practicing it until they become proficient at it.

Every study of high achieving men and women proves that greatness in life is only possible when you become outstanding at your chosen field.

Only undertake what you can do in an excellent fashion. There are no prizes for average performance.

Quotes about Fear and Worry

Do the things you fear, then the death of fear is certain.

The history of the human race is the history of ordinary people who have overcome their fears and accomplished extraordinary things.

Ignorance breeds fear; the more you learn about your subject, the less fear it holds for you.

Self-esteem and self-love are the opposites of fear; the more you like yourself, the less you fear anything.

Think continually about what you want, not about the things you fear.

To overcome fear, act as if it was impossible to fail, and it shall be.

Overcoming Failure Quotes by Brian Tracy

Never consider the possibility of failure; as long as you persist, you will be successful.

It is not failure itself that holds you back; it is the fear of failure that paralyzes you.

Failure is a prerequisite for great success. If you want to succeed faster, double your rate of failure.

Most people achieved their greatest success one step beyond what looked like their greatest failure.

Incorrect assumptions lie at the root of every failure. Have the courage to test your assumption.

Remember, you only have to succeed the last time.

Brian Tracy Quotes about Character, Integrity, Honesty

Confidence on the outside begins by living with integrity on the inside.

Integrity is the foundation upon which all other values are built.

Character is the ability to follow through on a resolution long after the emotion with which it was made has passed.

Truthfulness is the main element of character.

Deal honestly and objectively with yourself; intellectual honesty and personal courage are the hallmarks of great character.

Quotations about Financial Independence

Money is hard to earn and easy to lose. Guard yours with care.

Make a decision to be successful right now. Most people never decide to be wealthy and that is why they retire poor.

At least eighty percent of millionaires are self-made. That is, they started with nothing but ambition and energy, the same way most of us start.

Successful people save in prosperous times so they have a financial cushion in times of recession.

Those who start with too little money are more likely to succeed than those who start with too much. Energy and imagination are the springboards to wealth creation.

Financial security and independence are like a three-legged stool resting on savings, insurance and investments.

Ask for what you want. Ask for help, ask for input, ask for advice and ideas - but don't be afraid to ask.

Brian Tracy Psychology, Possibility and Attitude Quotes

Optimism is the one quality more associated with success and happiness than any other.

If you did not care at all what anyone else thought about you, what would you do differently or change in your life?

Attitude and personality are as important as experienced and ability. Choose wisely.

Dream big dreams! Imagine that you have no limitations and then decide what's right before you decide what's possible.

Your attitude is an expression of your values, beliefs and expectations.

Make a game of finding something positive in every situation. Ninety-five percent of your emotions are determined by how you interpret events to yourself.

Happiness and high come to you when you choose to live your life consistent with your highest values and your deepest convictions.

Set peace of mind as your highest goal and organize your entire life around it.
