The most unfortunate thing that happens to a person who fears failure is that he limits himself by becoming afraid to try anything new.
Progress always involves risks. You can't steal second base and keep your foot on first.
Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life - think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success, that is way great spiritual giants are produced.
Do one thing every day that scares you.
The need to be right all the time is the biggest barrier to new ideas.
- Edward De Bono
We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts.
With our thoughts, we make our world. Don’t be too timid and squeamish about your actions. All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
We can learn to move into the unknown with the confidence that we have a guiding force within us that is showing us the way.
- Shakti Gawain
You must begin to think of yourself as becoming the person you want to be.
