MOTIVATIONAL QUOTES FROM 

SUCCESS…Or Your Money Back’ by Shed Simove

People who succeed are very much like everyone else, except in one area:

THEY TRY THINGS

 -

It took me a long time to realise this very simple fact:

ALL ADULTS ARE BLUFFING IT

 -

No matter how much (or little) knowledge someone has, none of us will ever make it – unless we…

GIVE SOMETHING A GO

 -

Never ever worry that you’re not good enough to make something happen.

YOU ARE

 -

No matter how many setbacks or knockbacks you get, it’s absolutely vital that…

YOU MUST KEEP BELIEVING IN YOURSELF

– AND YOUR IDEA – 

AND CARRY ON

-

If you’re hearing ‘No’, ‘It’ll never work’ – or even the four words ‘You can’t do that…’ – first, you’re in good company and, second, you’re most certainly on the right track to success.

-

It’s very important to break your long-term goal into shorter achievable tasks because then the long-term goal doesn’t seem so overwhelming.

 -

IF AT FIRST YOU DON’T SUCCEED TRY AND TRY AGAIN BUT IF YOU’VE TRIED MANY TIMES WITHOUT SUCCESS THEN YOU MUST CHANGE YOUR STRATEGY!

 -

A ‘FAILURE’ IS SIMPLY SOMETHING THAT TELLS YOU THAT YOU’RE ONE STEP NEARER TO YOUR GOAL

 -

THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS ‘LUCK’ NOTHING HAPPENS WITHOUT YOU MAKING IT HAPPEN

 -

SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE AREN’T ‘LUCKY’, THEY SIMPLY CREATE OPPORTUNITIES FOR GREAT THINGS TO HAPPEN

 -

It’s an important fact to remember that… NO PERSON CAN ATTAIN SUCCESS ALONE. You can (and must) ‘delegate’ or ‘partner’ with, talented people.

 -

BRING YOUR IDEA TO LIFE IN SOME WAY OTHER THAN A THOUGHT IN YOUR HEAD, AND INSTANTLY IT GAINS MASSIVE POWER

 -

In order to achieve any success, you must do two things: 1. GET NOTICED 2. OFFER SOMETHING DIFFERENT

 -

Rather than ‘business as usual’, it’s vital to strive for ‘business as unusual’.

 -

IN ORDER TO BE NOTICED, ONCE YOU KNOW WHAT EVERYONE ELSE IS DOING, YOU HAVE TO DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT

 -

IN ORDER TO BE REMARKABLE, YOU MUST GET PEOPLE TO REMARK ON WHAT YOU’RE DOING

 -

One way you can get people to notice what you’re doing is by concentrating on DETAILS. The wonderful fact is that… PEOPLE NOTICE LITTLE THINGS And they both appreciate and ‘bond’ to them.

 -

IF YOU BROUGHT AN IDEA TO LIFE AND A HUNDRED RANDOM PEOPLE ALSO BROUGHT THAT IDEA TO LIFE EACH FINISHED VERSION OF THE IDEA WOULD BE DIFFERENT AND UNIQUE

 -

It’s a good idea to also look for problems before they arise, as this often creates decisions that will make you stand out. So… RATHER THEN BEING A PERFECTIONIST BE A PRE-FECTIONIST

-

IT'S EASY TO DEAL WITH SUCCESS… IT'S HOW YOU DEAL WITH PROBLEMS OR CHALLENGES THAT REALLY SHOWS WHAT SORT OF PERSON YOU ARE… TO YOURSELF AND TO OTHERS

 -

IF YOU HAVE THE BEST IDEA IN THE WORLD, IT WON’T SUCCEED UNLESS PEOPLE KNOW ABOUT IT

 -

One method to give you the best chance of success is to launch your concept in three ways: BETTER, QUICKER AND LOUDER

 -

NEWSFLASH THERE IS NO YESTERDAY – IT’S GONE… TOMORROW IS NOT GUARANTEED… THERE IS ONLY TODAY SO START… NOW!

 -

I MAY NOT BELIEVE I’M TALENTED NOW… BUT I AM GOING TO PUSH AND LEARN UNTIL I AM

 -

FIND OUT WHAT TURNS YOU ON ; FOLLOW A PASSION

 -

POSSESSION IS NINE TENTHS OF THE LAW AND IT’S QUITE A FEW TENTHS OF BEING SUCCESSFUL, TOO

 -

‘COOL, I MADE A MISTAKE – THAT MEANS I’VE JUST LEARNED ONE MORE LESSON THAT WILL TAKE ME CLOSER TO MY GOAL’

 -

IT’S CALLED A ‘MISTAKE’ BECA-- USE YOU ALWAYS ‘TAKE’ SOMETHING FROM IT

 -

SELF PROMOTION SHOULDN’T BE ABOUT ‘ARROGANCE’ IT’S ABOUT FOCUSING ON WHAT YOU DO WELL AND THEN COMMUNICATING THAT YOU HAVE THESE SKILLS TO OTHERS – AND USING THEM WITH 150% CONVICTION

 -

THERE ARE ALWAYS MANY, MANY REASONS THAT OTHER PEOPLE CAN FIND FOR WHY AN IDEA WON'T WORK.

-

TELL NO ONE ABOUT YOUR IDEA UNTIL YOU’VE BROUGHT IT TO LIFE IN SOME WAY.

-

ALL HUMAN ACHIEVEMENT HAS COME FROM AN IDEA IN SOMEONE’S HEAD

 -

YOU FIND OUT THE TRUE MEASURE OF SOMEONE WHEN THINGS ARE GOING BADLY

 -

NICE GUYS CAN FINISH FIRST

 -

Another crucial trait you need to succeed is the ability to… DO WHAT YOU SAY YOU’RE GOING TO DO

 -

IMAGINE IF YOU FOUND YOURSELF BEING FILMED TWENTY-FOUR HOURS A DAY FOR A REALITY TV SHOW… Would you act any differently if you knew everybody could see what you’re doing?

 -

THE 33% rule: Roughly 33% of people will love what you do. Roughly 33% of people will hate what you do. Roughly 33% of people will not care what you do. Once you lock it into your brain that it is HUMANLY IMPOSSIBLE for every single person to like what you do, it’s entirely liberating, because then you’ll be less apprehensive about telling others your ideas and also less surprised or hurt when you encounter someone who doesn’t like one of your suggestions or creations…

-

IF YOU VIEW YOUR LIFE LIKE AN EXPERIMENT, THEN…YOU’LL NEVER FAIL

 -

WITH THE INTERNET… THERE ARE NO BARRIERS TO STOP YOU REACHING BILLIONS OF PEOPLE

 -

KNOWLEDGE IS NO LONGER ‘POWER’ There’s a new guy in town… CREATIVITY IS THE NEW POWER

 -

Imagine what you'd be like if you made all your life decisions as if you were drunk. We all know that imbibing alcohol makes most people much more fearless, impulsive and spontaneous. And in general life, those traits are the same ones that can often lead to exciting adventures happening and new achievements being reached.

 -

INSPIRATION CAN COME FROM PRETTY MUCH EVERYWHERE

 -

IDEA + ACTION = ADVENTURE

 -

IF YOU QUESTION EVERYTHING AND ASK: ‘WHY IS IT LIKE THAT?’ THEN YOU OFTEN COME UP WITH NEW SOLUTIONS FOR HOW SOMETHING COULD BE… YOU CAN ONLY BE INSPIRED IF WHAT YOU EXPERIENCE IS INSPIRING

-

WHEN YOU ‘SWEAT THE SMALL STUFF’… PEOPLE NOTICE AND APPRECIATE IT

 -

ALWAYS BE LOOKING FOR NEW OPPORTUNITIES BE SENSITIVE TO PEOPLE’S NEEDS

 -

Here are my A.S.I.A. rules for how to make sure that anything you do captures someone’s attention and engages them, so that you’ll be hugely successful: AMAZE SHOCK INFORM AM-- USE

 -

In order to get any job done, I use a simple technique: TINY TARGETS AND SMALL REWARDS

 -

Once you start doing something. You will get SOME results the first time you try. You’ll get BETTER results the second time. You’ll get EVEN MORE BRILLIANT results the tenth time. Because… YOU ARE A LEARNING MACHINE So you’re pretty much guaranteed to always get better.

 -

PEOPLE OFTEN SAY ‘IT’S THE ‘THOUGHT’ THAT COUNTS’ ‘THE THOUGHT’ IS IMPORTANT, YES… BUT IT’S THE ACTION AFTER THE THOUGHT THAT REALLY COUNTS…
