  • ... a dream is actually a night movie designed to tell you a story.

  • Here's a human trait: change scares us. ... We will do anything to change until we start to; then we do everything to stop it.

  • Self-esteem is something you have to give to yourself. That's why it's called self-esteem. What you get from others is something else entirely.

  • When our plan doesn't work, we think we failed. So we go at it again in the same way, only this time harder. ... When the plan doesn't work, change the plan.

  • Financial freedom is having money enough so you don't need money.

  • It takes one-third of your overall writing energy just to keep the world far enough away so that you are able to concentrate while writing and still close enough so that you can go out and live when your day's work is done.

  • Listen and you will tell yourself everything you need to know.

  • Distractions are infinite. It's a way of staying in the old place.

  • ... confidence is a feeling we acquire after trying a task and succeeding at it. It is not a quality we can have before we try the task. Just because you lack confidence doesn't mean you lack competence. If you don't know what you're doing — do it. It's the best way to find out how to do it.

  • Once you find the source of your desire for fame or wealth, you are free to go directly to that need and fill it. Because here's the secret of success: If you fill the need first, then you will succeed; if you try to succeed to fill the need, you can only succeed in spite of it.

  • A dream is an all-powerful, intense wish for yourself. It's your heart talking. A goal is how your head plans to realize it.

  • Any blocks you have can be reduced to one cause: You don't think enough of yourself. Go to a mirror, say 'I love you.' Mean it. You'll be fine.
