Whatever You Think, Think the Opposite by Paul Arden

Whatever You Think, Think the Opposite by Paul Arden
“Getting what you want means making the decisions you need to make to get what you want.

Not the decisions those around you think you should make.

Making the safe decision is full, predictable and elads nowhere new.

The unsafe decision causess you to think and respond in a way you hadn't thought of.

And that thought will lead to other thoughts which will help you achieve what you want.

Start taking bad decisions and it will take you to a plce where others only dream of being.”

Francis Bacon
“If a man will begin with certainties, he shall end in doubts; but if he will be content to begin with doubts, he shall end in certainties.”
Francis Bacon, The Advancement Of Learning

Theodore Roosevelt
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
Theodore Roosevelt

Robert Louis Stevenson
“Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant.”
