Dale Carnegie Inspirational Quotes To Motivate You
Act enthusiastic and you will be enthusiastic. Fear not those who argue but those who dodge. Feeling sorry for yourself, and your present condition, is not only a waste of energy but the worst habit you could possibly have. First ask yourself What is the worst that can happen? Then prepare to accept it. Then proceed to improve on the worst. Happiness doesn’t depend on any external conditions, it is governed by our mental attitude. If you believe in what you are doing, then let nothing hold you up in your work. Much of the best work of the world has been done against seeming impossibilities. The thing is to get the work done. If you can’t sleep, then get up and do something instead of lying there worrying. It’s the worry that gets you, not the lack of sleep. If you want to conquer fear, don’t sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy. If you want to gather honey, don’t kick over the beehive. Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. Instead of worrying about what people say of you, why not spend time trying to accomplish something they will admire. Any fool can criticize, condemn, and complain – and most fools do. It isn’t what you have, or who you are, or where you are, or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy. It is what you think about. You never achieve success unless you like what you are doing. You can make more friends in two months by becoming interested in other people than you can in two years by trying to get other people interested in you. Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all. Most of us have far more courage than we ever dreamed we possessed. Only the prepared speaker deserves to be confident. Our fatigue is often caused not by work, but by worry, frustration and resentment. People rarely succeed unless they have fun in what they are doing. Success is getting what you want. Happiness is wanting what you get. Tell the audience what you’re going to say, say it; then tell them what you’ve said. Applause is a receipt, not a bill. The essence of all art is to have pleasure in giving pleasure. The only way to get the best of an argument is to avoid it. The royal road to a man’s heart is to talk to him about the things he treasures most. There are four ways, and only four ways, in which we have contact with the world. We are evaluated and classified by these four contacts what we do, how we look, what we say, and how we say it. When dealing with people, remember you are not dealing with creatures of logic, but creatures of emotion. When fate hands you a lemon, make lemonade. Are you bored with life? Then throw yourself into some work you believe in with all your heart, live for it, die for it, and you will find happiness that you had thought could never be yours. Develop success from failures. Discouragement and failure are two of the surest stepping stones to success. Do the hard jobs first. The easy jobs will take care of themselves. Do the thing you fear to do and keep on doing it… that is the quickest and surest way ever yet discovered to conquer fear. Each nation feels superior to other nations. That breeds patriotism – and wars. Fear doesn’t exist anywhere except in the mind.
