The outstanding quote for me was "You will never soar like an eagle if you're hanging around a bunch of turkeys and chickens." I found real identity in that quote.

Do not underestimate the power of small action is my favourite quote. Small actions do impact our day to day lives.

My favorite quotes were the following:

1. "To create positive changes in your life, you must open yourself up—and remain open—to the possibility of new and alternative ways of thinking!"

2. "However, if you have the desire to be really successful, you will need to be all four—willing, able, committed, and prepared."

3. "By allowing yourself to be offended, you immediately give your power away and become the victim."
Thats it - I think you hit all of the important points of the book! Thanks :tiphat:

I was surprised to find that my favorite quote from the book was not in this forum.

My favorite quote is, "please don’t quit and take the easy way out, because giving up is not the easy way out; it’s the hard way back in!"

I love this quote because it reminds me that even when I feel like I am about to give up it is actually a lot harder to just give up than just trying to tackle one problem at a time. Success is a collection of small responsibilities and they all come together to form amazing opportunities that you can take an advantage of if you keep trucking.

People who don't make many mistakes never take many steps forward or accomplish very much."

I agree on that part, success is meaningful on how you try to be a part of it. I guess, if i do not have mistakes i will not dream of something and remain living in a passive way.

Perfect for my day! Thanks, it reminded me something today. So hard to become the student of life. We have plenty of teachers, critics and bullies. It is just like so hard to pass even 75.😊😊😊

Smile is my best antidote!😀😀

Sincerity has nothing to do with the truth. Don’t let yourself be swayed by someone’s sincerity. They can be wrong and sincere. Always let the facts lead you.
It might be weird to pick this quote out of all of the quotes. However, this one means a lot to me. It is a lesson that I have been learning to apply these past few years. You have to follow what you believe is right. Seek truth, and never betray your heart for the sake of loyalty.

My favorite quote is: "Do not underestimate the power of small actions." Too often we overlook the importance of little things and their impact on others. I like how to ties this to our thinking patterns. One little, passing thought can grow and have a life of its own. Even what you think can have an effect on others.
This is one of my favorite quotes too. It’s hard to pick just one quote. I felt there were several in the book that helped me look at issues in a different way especially the importance of small things

My favorite quote in the book is, "You are never going to have positive, lasting change when you're coming from a place where you feel something is wrong with you. Nothing is wrong with you! You are not a defective person who needs to be fixed to be worthy of all the food things life has to offer, because you are already good and whole. Do you hear me? If not, read it again!" It speaks volumes to a lesson I had to learn years ago.

My favorite quote from the book was, "You cannot keep doing things the same way and expect to find different results.". I really feel like this is a great motto to live by in your everyday life. If you just keep doing the same thing over and over you're not going to grow or be happy.
