Jack Canfield - Improvement - Action - Dreams - Mistakes

Jack Canfield - Learning - Improvement - Problems - Media - Books

Six mistakes mankind keeps making century after century:
Believing that personal gain is made by crushing others;
Worrying about things that cannot be changed or corrected;
Insisting that a thing is impossible because we cannot accomplish it;
Refusing to set aside trivial preferences;
Neglecting development and refinement of the mind;
Attempting to compel others to believe and live as we do.
Marcus Tullius Cicero - Mistakes - Worry - Belief
- Possible - Impossible - Improvement

People who grow rich almost always improve their sex life. More people want to have sex with them. That’s just the way human beings work. Money is power. Power is an aphrodisiac. Money did not make me happy. But it definitely improved my sex life.
Felix Dennis - Rich - Improvement - People - Money - Power - Happy

Start by scrapping the tax code. Don't fiddle with it. Junk it. Throw it out. Bury it. Replace it with a pro-growth, pro-family tax cut that lowers tax rates to 17% across the board and expands exemptions for individuals and children so that a family of four would pay no taxes on the first $36,000 of income.
Steve Forbes - Tax - Family
- Improvement

A customer is the most important visitor on our premises, he is not dependent on us. We are dependent on him. He is not an interruption in our work. He is the purpose of it.

You continue to learn more and more about yourself every day.
Bruce Lee - Improvement - Age - Learning - Self Control

Synergy is the driver. There are two levels of synergy: there are operating synergies, which, you know, you'd have to be stupid not to try to take advantage of, and then there are strategic synergies. In other words, in what positions you would be more sustainable, more long term, and so on.
John Malone - Change - Improvement

- Improvement - Passionate - Intelligent - Focus

Donald Trump - Encouragement - Improvement - Power

In fact, at this point in history, the most radical, pervasive, and earth-shaking transformation would occur simply if everybody truly evolved to a mature, rational, and responsible ego, capable of freely participating in the open exchange of mutual self-esteem.

Ken Wilber - Change - Self Help
- Improvement

You have to seek the simplest implementation of a problem solution in order to know when you've reached your limit in that regard.
