Og Mandino
“I will act now. I will act now. I will act now. Henceforth, I will repeat these words each hour, each day, everyday, until the words become as much a habit as my breathing, and the action which follows becomes as instinctive as the blinking of my eyelids. With these words I can condition my mind to perform every action necessary for my success. I will act now. I will repeat these words again and again and again. I will walk where failures fear to walk. I will work when failures seek rest. I will act now for now is all I have. Tomorrow is the day reserved for the labor of the lazy. I am not lazy. Tomorrow is the day when the failure will succeed. I am not a failure. I will act now. Success will not wait. If I delay, success will become wed to another and lost to me forever. This is the time. This is the place. I am the person.”
Og Mandino

Shannon L. Alder
“When you let go of control and commit yourself to happiness, it is so easy to offer compassion and forgiveness. This propels you from the past, into the present. People that are negative, spend so much time trying to control situations and blame others for their problems. Committing yourself to staying positive is a daily mantra that states, “I have control over how I plan to react, feel, think and believe in the present. No one guides the tone of my life, except me!”
Shannon L. Alder

Steve Jobs
“That’s been one of my mantras — focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains. [BusinessWeek, May 25 1998]”
Steve Jobs

“Remember to delight yourself first, then others can be truly delighted."

This was my mantra when I published my first book in 1990, and still holds true. When we focus on the song of our soul and heart, then others will be touched similarly. Sometimes people wonder or worry whether people will like or approve of their creative expression. It's none of your business. It's your business to stay present and focused for the work of your deepest dreams. It might look crooked or strange, or be very odd-but if it delights you, then it is yours, and will find it's way into other hearts.”

Silvia Hartmann
“It is the hardest thing of all, the one thing that will show if you have the one true courage. To know that you have failed, that your best efforts have been defeated, to not be able to stand it, to not be able to go on and yet to go on nonetheless.”
Silvia Hartmann, Sorcerer and Apprentice

And everyone is guided only
By their conscience.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

Richelle Mead, Shadow Kiss

Karl Kristian Flores
“Experience is simply a mantra we say to ourselves to keep us from hearing the actual song of life—which is the beating heart of a soul unsure of why it is here, thought Andrei. Place a hand on the heart of one nearby, feel it pounce, listen, and all at once, their achievements go away and they are the same as you.”
Karl Kristian Flores, A Happy Ghost
