Here are some quotes that inspire and remind me to be on purpose:

Between stimulus and response is our greatest power- the freedom to choose.

Stephen Covey

Whether you think you can or think you can’t, you’re usually right.

Henry Ford

Because we are, by nature, proactive, if our lives are a function of conditioning and conditions, it is because we have, by conscious decision or by default, chosen to empower those things to control us.

Stephen Covey

Too many people spend money they haven’t earned, to buy things they don’t want, to impress people they don’t like.

Will Rogers

To freely bloom- that is my definition of success.

Gerry Spence

You can’t have the fruits without the roots.

It’s the principle of sequencing: Private Victory precedes Public Victory.

Self-Mastery and self-discipline are the foundation of good relationships with others.

Stephen Covey

Full effort is full victory

Stephen Covey

The more aware we are of our basic paradigms, maps, or assumptions, and the extent to which we have been influenced by our experience, the more we can take responsibility for those paradigms, examine them, test them against reality, listen to others and be open to their perceptions, thereby getting a larger picture and a far more objective view.

Stephen Covey

Between stimulus and response is our greatest power- the freedom to choose.

Stephen Covey

Because we are, by nature, proactive, if our lives are a function of conditioning and conditions, it is because we have, by conscious decision or by default, chosen to empower those things to control us.

Stephen Covey

We cannot direct the wind, but we can adjust our sails.

Your attitude plays a critical role in success, fulfillment of your goals or dreams, etc… You cannot control what happens to you, but you can control your attitude toward what happens to you as well as your response; in this way, you master change, growth and yourself.
