"Don't become a victim of yourself. Forget about the thief waiting in the alley; what about the thief in your mind?"
Jim Rohn
Currently I was reading this another wonderful book by Robin Sharma, Discover Your Destiny with the Monk Who Sold His Ferrari. I come across some really inspiriting verse..
The greatest treasures are the treasures that lie within.
.
There is but one failure in life and that is failure to try.
.
The past is a grave and it makes no sense to spend your life living in a grave. Every ending represents a new beginning. Or to put it another way, you cannot move forward in life if you're stuck looking in the rearview mirror.
.

More quotes by Jim Rohn
.
One of the best places to start to turn your life around is by doing whatever appears on your mental "I should" list.
.
Indecision is the thief of opportunity.
.
Every life form seems to strive to its maximum except human beings. How tall will a tree grow?
As tall as it possibly can. Human beings, on the other hand, have been given the dignity of choice.
You can choose to be all or you can choose to be less. Why not stretch up to the full measure of the challenge and see what all you can do?
.
You cannot change your destination overnight, but you can change your direction overnight.
.
Decision making can sometimes seem like inner civil war.
.
I used to say, "I sure hope things will change." Then I learned that the only way things are going to change for me is when I change.
.
Don't say, "If I could, I would." Say, "If I can, I will."
.
It doesn't matter which side of the fence you get off on sometimes. What matters most is getting off! You cannot make progress without making decisions.
.
We generally change ourselves for one of two reasons: inspiration or desperation.
.
If you don't like how things are, change it! You're not a tree.
