Influence Your Own Life
Denis Waitley - motivational speaker, author and coach to Olympic greats - shares ways to focus on what really matters in your life.
Life is the movie you see through your own eyes. It makes little difference what's happening out there. It's how you take it that counts.
If you believe you can, you probably can. If you believe you won't, you most assuredly won't. Belief is the ignition switch that gets you off the launching pad.
You must understand seeing is believing, but also know that believing is seeing.
Change the changeable, accept the unchangeable and remove yourself from the unacceptable.
You must welcome change as the rule, but not as your ruler.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decisions.
Everything is something you decide to do, and there is nothing you have to do.
There are two primary choices in life: to accept conditions as they exist, or accept the responsibility for changing them.
You must stick to your convictions, but be ready to abandon your assumptions.
A dream is your creative vision for your life in the future. You must break out of your current comfort zone and become comfortable with the unfamiliar and the unknown.
A life lived with integrity - even if it lacks the trappings of fame and fortune - is a shining star in whose light others may follow in the years to come.
A smile is the light in your window that tells others that there is a caring, sharing person inside.
