Success leaves clues. If you learn the ways that another person succeeded, you can succeed too.
One of the biggest lessons I've learned on creating success is to learn from those who have come before you and have created the success you're after. When I learned this, my passion became to seek out successful people so I can learn the thoughts, beliefs and strategies they implement so I too could become successful.
The following are 9 powerful, life-changing personal development quotes I learned that changed my life and can change your life too. They are from three of my favourite successful people – Jim Rohn, Zig Ziglar and Tony Robbins.
“Don't wish it was easier, wish you were better.” – Jim Rohn
Many people go through life struggling and their one wish is that life was easier – I know I've been there before. But the secret to living a great life is not to wish it were easier, because it never will; the secret is to improve yourself as a person so you are more prepared to handle the challenges life throws your way.
“If you don't design your own life plan, chances are you'll fall into someone else's plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much.” Jim Rohn
Designing your own life starts with creating a vision for how you want your life to be and getting to work on creating that life. If you don't work on creating the life of your dreams, you'll most likely end up working for someone who will be using you to help them create the life of their dreams.
“Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune.” – Jim Rohn
Going to university or college for formal education is not a promise of wealth – even having a degree these days isn't a promise of a job. A job is designed to pay you the minimum amount possible, while you exert the maximum amount of focus and energy in order to build someone else's dreams.
If you want to build a fortune, you must focus on self-education. This education could mean reading books, audio programs or attending seminars from successful people so you can learn what they did to become successful.
“You can get everything in life you want if you will just help enough other people get what they want.” – Zig Ziglar
If you want to create wealth in your life, this concept is what you need to understand and apply.
The way to creating wealth is by providing products and services that the masses want. For example, let's take a look at the iPhone. Before iPhones we had those crappy Nokia phones. Remember them? Then Apple brought out a super-innovative, futuristic phone that combined a phone, computer, camera and GPS all in one – like who didn't want one right? I remember getting the very first iPhone as soon as it came out, as did masses of people.
Apple is now one of the wealthiest companies in the world because they're continually bringing out products that the masses want.
So the lesson here is: create products and services that the masses want and in return you'll get everything you want.
“People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing – that's why we recommend it daily.” – Zig Ziglar
After starting my Personal Development I noticed that I was always super-pumped after reading or listening to something motivational – my days were AWESOME. I later realised that when I didn't focus on my Personal Development, my days didn't go too well. Why did this happen? Well, if you're not constantly filling your mind with positivity, then negativity from your surroundings will enter it and your thoughts and feelings will become negative.
Lessons here: Fill your mind with positive, empowering stuff every day.
“Money isn’t the most important thing in life, but it’s reasonably close to oxygen on the ‘gotta have it’ scale.” – Zig Ziglar
So many people have beliefs that limit them from creating more wealth in their life. For example “Money isn't everything”, “Money doesn't grow on trees” or “I'm not greedy”, yet they have an innate desire for more abundance in their lives.
The truth is that money IS important. It's almost as important as oxygen. Imagine going for a few months without money? You'd probably starve, end up living on the streets and you certainly won't be able to experience the good things in life.
“If you do what you've always done, you'll get what you've always gotten.” – Tony Robbins
You life right now is the result of the decisions you made in your past. Yes, you are in 100% control of your life. If you want to experience something different in the future, something extraordinary, then you must start making new decisions now.
“If you want to be successful, find someone who has achieved the results you want and copy what they do and you'll achieve the same results.” – Tony Robbins
Is there a shortcut to success? There sure is! You can either trial and error your way to success with no help or you can find a mentor who has already achieved the results you're after and learn from his failures so they don't happen to you – and ultimately succeed a lot faster than doing it all on your own. A mentor will also serve as accountability for the achievement of your goals.
“Why live an ordinary life, when you can live an extraordinary one. – Tony Robbins
This is my favourite Tony Robbins quote! It's self explanatory, but let me ask you… why would you live an ordinary life when you have all the possibility and capability of living an extraordinary one?
Did you get value? Is so, I would greatly appreciate it if you commented below and shared on Facebook.
