  • What you want is what you need. Your dearest wish comes straight from your core, loaded with vital information about who you are and who you can become.

  • Wishing and dreaming are the beginning of all human endeavor.

  • The environment that creates winners is almost always made up of winners.

  • A direct statement about yourself is considered objective only if it is negative. If it's positive, it is considered subjective. And 'objective' means it is accurate, and 'subjective' means it is conceited self-delusion.

  • A goal is the basic unit of life design.

  • We all need to learn a new language for love — a language that speaks not in socks, pancakes, and paychecks, but in shared fascination with physics or poetry, delight in each other's uniqueness, and mutual practical and emotional support.

  • When you play it too safe, you're taking the biggest risk of your life.

  • Doing is a quantum leap from imagining. Thinking about swimming isn't much like actually getting in the water. Actually getting in the water can take your breath away. The defense force inside of us wants us to be cautious, to stay away from anything as intense as a new kind of action. Its job is to protect us, and it categorically avoids anything resembling danger. But it's often wrong. Anything worth doing is worth doing too soon.

  • Being judgmental is cheap. Any fool can do it.

  • Imaginary obstacles are insurmountable. Real ones aren't.

  • It's only too late if you don't start now.
