Meine Notizen:

Distinctions empower is to make better decisions and, therefore, create the results that we desire for ourselves.

Sometimes, not having a certain distinction can cost you everything.

It’s in our moments of decisions that your destiny is shaped.

The three decisions that control your destiny are: 

1.your decisions about what to focus on.

2.your decisions about what things mean to you

3.your decisions about what to do to create the results you desire.

You see it’s not what’s happening to you now or what has happened in your past that determines who you become.

..there is nothing you can’t accomplish if 

1.you clearly decide what out is that you’re absolutely committed to achieving

2.you are willing to take massive action 

3.you notice what’s working or not

4. you continue to change your approach until you achieve what you want, using whatever life gives you along the way.

..the power of truly committed decision that is act upon, no matter what the conditions, on a continuous basis. 

Success and failure are not overnight experiences. it’s all the small decisions along the way that cause people to fail.

Conversely, success is the result of making small decisions: deciding to hold yourself to a higher standard, deciding to contribute, deciding to feed your mind rather than allowing the environment to control you-these small decisions create the  life experience we call success.

Everything you and I do, we do either out of our need to avoid pain or or desire to gain pleasure.

For most people, the fear of loss is much greater than the desire for gain.

You are distressed by anything external, the pain is not die to the thing itself but to your own estimate of it; and this you have the power to revoke at any moment. – Marcus Aurelius

Men, as well as women,are much oftener led by their hearts than by their understanding. -lord chesterfield

I conceive that pleasures are to be avoided if greater pains be the consequence, and pains to be coveted that terminate in greater pleasures- Michel de montaigne

We need to realize that our beliefs have the capacity to make us sick or make us healthy in a moment.

Great leaders are rarely realistic. they are intelligent, and they are accurate, but they are not realistic by other people’s standards.

No matter what happens in your life, you’ve got to be able to believe, “this, too, shall pass,” and that if you keep persisting, you’ll find a way.

we are what we think.

all that we are arises

with our thoughts.

with our thoughts, 

we make our world. -buddha 

Kaizen – Japanese word for constant and never-ending improvement 

What have I learned today? what did I contribute our improve? what did I enjoy? if every day you constantly improve your ability to enjoy your life, then you’ll experience it at a level or richness most people never even dream of.

Leaders are those individuals who live by emptying beliefs and teach others to tap their full capacities by shifting the beliefs that  have been limiting them.

Remember: courage, unused, diminishes. commitment, unexercised, wanted. love unshared, dissipates.

There is nothing training cannot do. nothing is above its reach. it can turn bad morals to good; it can destroy bad principles and recreate good ones; it can lift men to angelship  – Mark twain

The most powerful way to control focus is through the use of questions.

Experience is not what happens a man; it is what a man does with what happens to him – Aldos huxley

what is great about this problem? 

what is not perfect yet?

what am I willing to so to make it the way I want it? 

what I’m I willing to no longer do in order to make it the way I want it?

how can I enjoy the process while I do what is necessary to make the way I want it? 

The morning power questions

what am I happy about in my life now?

what am I excited about in my life now?

what am I proud about in my life now? 

what am I grateful about in my life now? 

what am I enjoying most in my life now? 

what am I committed to in my life right now? 

who do I love? who loves me? 

The evening power questions 

what have I given today? 

what did I learn today? 

how has today asses to the quality of my life or how cannot use today as an investment in my future? 

…linked the pleasure of taking control to becoming angry ..

The words you constantly select will shape your destiny 

If you could love enough, you could be the most powerful person in the world – Emmet fox

The ten emotions of power

1.love and warmth 

2.appreciation and gratitude 

3.curiosity

4.excitement and passion

5.determination

6.flexibility

7.confidence 

8.cheerfulness (Being cheerful means you’re incredibly intelligent because you know that if you live your life in a state of pleasure – one that a so intense that you transmit a sense of you to those around you -you can have the impact to meet virtually any challenge that comes your way)

9.vitality 

10.contribution

Negative emotions are there to serve you that some change is needed.

You’ll love returning again when you need renewed inspiration… really have some fun and experience your passion…unlock your imagination,throw all common sense to the wind and act as if you’re kid again-a kid who can literally have anything he wants,a kid who has only to express his heart’s desire and it will instantly be his 

Giant goals produce giant motivation

Goals take you beyond your limits to a world of unlimited power

When you set a goal you’ve committed you can 

failing to achieve your goal can mean achieving your real goals 

..we must constantly strive to live each day to its fullest, squeezing all the you we can out of each moment.

..life is constantly testing us for our level of commitment, and life’s greatest rewards are reserved for those who demonstrate a never ending commitment to act until they achieve 

..if you get inspired enough, the power you’ll unleash from within will find a way to manifest your desire

Emotions most important to avoid: 

  1. negativity: i avoid consistently  depending on the acceptance of others of my ultimate happiness and success 
  2. procrastination: I avoid consistently expecting perfection from myself and others

That person who’s trying to achieve the pleasure of success without ever experiencing the pain of rejection will never succeed for long term.

If you’re truly going to succeed at the highest level in life don’t you have to be willing to risk rejection? 

…isn’t it true that even if you are an honest and sincere person and give your all to others every day there are still people who will misinterpret your actions ..

We truly can design who we become

You could feel good right now for absolutely no reason. 

High self-esteem comes from feeling like you have control over events, not that events have control over you.

Remember the most empowering rule ist to enjoy yourself no matter what happens. 

“Man’s mind stretched to a new idea never goes back to its original dimensions”- Oliver Wendell Holmes 

If you believe that you are intelligent, its because you have activated certain references to support that feeling of certainty. 

References are not limited to your actual experience. Your imagination itself is a  source of references. 

Our imagination is ten times more potent that our willpower.

Imagination unleashed provides us a sense of certainty and vision that goes far beyond the limitations of the past. 

With faith, you can cling to your vision in the face of seeming failure. 

..instead he chose to use each failed attempt as a reference for the belief that he was getting closer to the solution. 

You can borrow the references of other people – biographies 

Imagination is more important than knowledge – Albert Einstien 

No matter how well things are going for you, someone is doing even better. just when you think you skill has reached the highest level, you find there’s someone else who’s achieved even greater heights. and that’s one of the beauties of live: it drives us to constantly expand and grow. The power of having new references to raise our standards for ourselves is immense, whether it’s studying the teachings of a great spiritual leader who, in spite of abuse others, continues to give love, or seeing those who’ve succeeded financially and noticing what’s truly possible. 

‘It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.” – Antoine De Saint-Exupery 

Could it be possible that what seem like the worst day in our lives are actually the most powerful terms of the lessons we can choose to learn from them? 

GIGO: Garbage In, Garbage Out. Each day that we live, we’re taking in new information, ideas, concepts, experiences, and sensations. We need to consciously stand guard at the doors of our minds to make sure that whatever we’re allowing to enter will cause our lives to be enriched, that the experiences we pursue will add to our stockpile of possibility.

Expand your references and expand you life 

“Nothing great will ever be achieved without great men, and men are great only if they are determined to be so” – Charles de Gualle 

“Wealth is the product of man’s capacity to think” Ayn Rand

Optimist Club Creed 

Promise yourself…

To be strong that nothing can disturb you peace of mind.

To talk health, happiness, prosperity to every person you meet.

To make all your friends feel that there is something of value in them. 

To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true.

To think only the best, to work only for the best, and to expect the best.

To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.

To forget the mistakes of the past and press on the greater achievements of the future.

To wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give every living creature you meet a smile. 

To give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others.

To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and to happy to permit presence of trouble. 


John Wooden’s seven-point creed:

“Making the most of oneself”

  1. be true to yourself.
  2. make each day your masterpiece
  3. help others
  4. drink deeply from good books
  5. make friendship a fine art
  6. build a shelter against a rainy day
  7. pray for guidance and give thanks for your blessings every day

Your Outcome: Learn how to use time to your advantage rather than allowing it to rule your levels of satisfaction and stress.

If you’ve ever felt stress – and who hasn’t? – chances are excellent that it’s because you felt you just didn’t have enough time to do what you wanted to at the level of quality to which you were committed.

You could be feeling this frustration, for example because you’re focusing exclusively on the demands of the moment: present requests, present challenges, present events. In this stressed and overloaded state, your effectiveness is rapidly diminished. The solution is simple: take control of the time frame you’re focusing upon. It the present is stressful, then become more resourceful in dealing with your challenges by focusing on the future and the successful completion or resolution of the tasks before you. This new focus will instantly change your state and give you the very resources you need to turn things around in the present.

Stress is so often the result of feeling “stuck” in a particular time frame. One example of this is then a person keeps thinking of their future in disempowering ways. You can help this person or yourself by getting them of refocus on what they can control in the present. Or some people, when they’re called upon to take on a performance. As they remain in the past, their stress increases. A shift to the present, or an anticipation of a positive future, could instantly change their emotional state. Our emotions, then are powerfully impacted by the time frame in which we’re operating at the moment.
