    Hi Mr Self Development,

    The quotes that resonate strongly with me are as follows:

    “Success…seems to be connected with action. Successful people keep moving. They make mistakes, but they don’t quit.”
    –Conrad Hilton

    All too often, people allow setbacks and mistakes to overwhelm and stop them in their tracks to success. This is a timely reminder to keep pressing forward towards your goals by using mistakes as stepping stones. Never stop taking intelligent and thoughtful action and you will succeed. Never give up!

    “Destiny is not a matter of chance; it’s a matter of choice.” –Anonymous

    We have more control over our lives than we know. This quote is testament to that fact. What we make of our lives, what we achieve and become, depends on the choices we make.

    “It takes courage to grow up and turn out to be who you really are.” –E.E. Cummings

    Living and taking full responsibility for our lives and actions requires immense courage. It also takes great courage to unleash our fullest potential. The important thing is to keep on trying.

    Thanks for the inspiring quotes!

    Awesome list! Thanks for sharing. Of the above quotes I really liked John Wooden’s the best, ““Do not let what you can not do; interfere with what you can do.” That is so important. A lot of people work too hard to improve weak areas in their lives (not that they shouldn’t be worked on), and don’t spend nearly enough time maximizing their strong points. In my opinion people should play to their strengths and work on their weak areas as they have time.

    Hi Mr Self Development,

    I love all these quotes that you have shared. Many of them I have become familiar with over time =) I also wanted to add some of my personal favorites.

    On Enthusiasm
    Catch on fire with enthusiasm and people will come for miles to watch you burn.
    -John Wesley

    On Imagination
    I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.
    -Michelangelo

    Hi John & Co,

    I came here on a wave (ie surfing via several sites). I took a look around. You’ve got a great SI site here. And a very impressive Alexa Ranking.

    Reading through all 25 quotes above I was very impressed with this one. “How does one become a butterfly? You must want to fly so much that you are willing to give up being a caterpillar.” – Trina Paulus

    I’d never heard that one before but it is SO true.

    If I can add one to your collection, I really like the premise of this too:

    “Determination gives you the resolve to keep going in spite of the roadblocks that lay before you.” ~ Denis Waitley

  • http://www.SteveScottSite.com Steve@Lifestyle Design

    Truly wonderful stuff. Very inspiring.

    I would have to say my favorite is:

    “Give me a stock clerk with a goal, and I will give you a man who will make history. Give me a man without a goal, and I will give you a stock clerk.”

    It is so true. Having a goal, passion and a willingness to work to get there a man can move mountains. With none of these, a man will likely just float through life on the wings of fate

    Here’s a quote from a fortune cookie that has been hanging in my cube at work for years: Be prepared to modify your plan.

    First, it assumes you have a plan.
    Second, it implies that you’ll keep going.
    Third, it emplores a person to be willing to change a situation given a set back.

    Gotta love fortune cookies….

    “Destiny is not a matter of chance; it’s a matter of choice.” – I disagree. Luck is far more dominant factor in our lives then we think or would like to believe, but it’s true. So destiny is mostly chance not choice.

    • KovacM

      What is luck?
      Keep relying on luck and see how far you go :)

         You are Right…. He who has no Trust in himself relies on Luck.

    • Big D

      You are an idiot to the highest extent. You can be whatever you want to be in this world. Pussies who believe it’s all about luck will never succeed, but great people who decided not to let cancer take over their lives, or young athletes willing to do anything for success are truly great people. Never give up your dreams and to God be the glory and you may accomplish anything, all depends on how bad you want it.

    please how do get out of this issue of my

    I need help

    • KC

      hi ogaba,

      sometimes the best thing to do is to look away from what you wrote(or what you were reading) for 30 seconds, and then begin once again. try this for a while. what happens is that the mind sometimes second guesses what its seeing or what it decided to do(in this case, what it decided to write) by doing this for a month you will gain a confidence that will resolve the issue.

      False. There is much be fear in the shadows. The Vashda Narada. It’s what’s in the shadows. It’s what’s always in the shadows. Not every shadow, but any shadow.

    “ou can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and has made all the difference.” -Steve Jobs

    • Denton

      *You

      • studentshared83

        you derp

  • Denton

    Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don’t lose faith. I’m convinced that the only thing that kept me going was that I loved what I did. You’ve got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t Settle.” -Steve Jobs

  • Denton

    “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” – Steve Jobs

    [Death] I have seen a great many things. I have attended all the world’s worst disasters, and worked for the greatest of villains. And I’ve seen the greatest wonders. But it’s still like I said it was: no one lives forever. When I finally came for Liesel, I took selfish pleasure in the knowledge that she had lived her ninety years so wisely. By then, her stories had touched many souls. Some of whom I came to know in passing. Max, whose friendship lasted almost as long as Liesel. Almost. In her final thoughts, she saw the long list of lives that merged with hers. Her three children. Her grandchildren. Her husband. Among them, lit like lanterns, were Hans and Rosa, her brother, and the boy whose hair remained the color of lemons forever. I wanted to tell the book thief she was one of the few souls that made me wonder what it was to live; but in the end, there were no words. Only peace. The only truth I truly know is that I am haunted by humans.

    this has to be in her!!!!
