Think timelessly with Dale Carnegie

Despite the time he lived in, DC has been and still is one of the most influential mentors of our age! He managed to write a couple of bestsellers in the area of self-development. His seminar was at the time very popular, even young Warren Buffet claims that it was very helpful for him to be able to listen to DC. If you truly want to understand the principles of human interaction, psychology of the individual, selling or promotions, DC is there for you!

“Talk to someone about themselves and they’ll listen for hours.”

 

That is in human nature. By knowing this and applying it to your daily life, you can easily become much more popular across your social circles. It’s so simple and effective as well.

 

“When dealing with people, remember you are not dealing with creatures of logic, but with creatures bristling with prejudice and motivated by pride and vanity.”

 

People are still only people. We are not robots or computer systems. We are all making decisions based on our emotions and feelings. Even though you may not agree with that, the truth is, we all do not have a capability to make a completely unbiased decision. We just cannot become objective. We can get close to it, however, our decisions will always be affected by human nature. Remember that when dealing with people.

 

“I have come to the conclusion that there is only one way under high heaven to get the best of an argument – and that is to avoid it. Avoid it as you would avoid rattlesnakes and earthquakes.”

 

Every subjective argument has a negative outcome. You can’t win it. How can you win the race for “the truth” when you try to persuade others about your own version of it? If they finally agree, you’ve just broken them, which means they’ve lost. If you don’t agree with each other, you all just wasted your time. If you agree with them or appear to do so, you’ve just lost. It doesn’t make sense at all. It’s better to ask everyone about their opinions, you don’t have to agree with them. The key is to not get into the conflict where you can only lose. Every single time you’re about to have an argument, try to calm down and think of the possible outcomes. You’re about to risk losing popularity or wasting your time… Do you still want to trigger it?

 

“Only knowledge that is used sticks in your mind.”

 

If you don’t practice what you preach, you are literally lying to yourself. Don’t hide behind the warmly pronounced words of the best quotes and mantras if you cannot follow them! Just don’t do that. Follow what you say by saying what you follow.

“People rarely succeed unless they have fun in what they are doing.”

 

Being truly passionate about something is the ultimate motion towards any kind of success. If you want to become a master of what you are doing, you need to develop a strong bond towards that activity. You need to have something bigger than you that would deliver you a huge amount of motivation even if you don’t feel good in the moments of hardship. Use your passion to overcome any crisis and rise!

 

“If you can’t sleep, then get up and do something instead of lying there and worrying. It’s the worry that gets you, not the loss of sleep.”

 

Worrying about the situation is killing your dreams, hopes and aspirations way more than the actual situation. Try to avoid it. Take action, it is as simple as that. Thank DC later.

 

 

 

“It is the way we react to circumstances that determines our feelings.”

 

Our feelings are only up to us! We all have the power to decide how we feel. Don’t let the external circumstances influence your own mood. Become responsible for your emotions. You’ve got responsibility, so take it seriously. You’re able to respond!

 

“Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.”

 

If you feel sick about your life, the only thing you have to do is to stand up and act. Simple as that. You don’t need to become the victim of your own overthinking. Just get up and force change by acting. That’s the proactivity in it’s brightest name.

 

“Names are the sweetest, most important sound in any language.”

 

Just remember this rule and you’ll never be the same in the interaction with your surroundings. This might be the golden rule for everyone all around the world because it is so global…

 

“All of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon – instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside our windows today.”

 

You won’t be ever happy unless you realize that all you need to be happy is all you already have. If you are not able to feel happiness today, why do you think it should change one day? You are the one who is in charge. Become grateful for what you have and enjoy every single day living it to the fullest!

 

Bonus quotes for DC lovers

 

“Today is life – the only life you are sure of. Make the most of today. Get interested in something. Shake yourself awake. Develop a hobby. Let the winds of enthusiasm sweep through you. Live today with gusto.”

“You can make more friends in two months by becoming interested in other people than you can in two years by trying to get other people interested in you.”

“It isn’t what you have or who you are or where you are or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy. It is what you think about it.”

We’ll let them resonate with you…

Think and grow rich with Napoleon Hill

Napoleon Hill was an American writer and philosopher. This guy spend most of his lifetime in the area of self-help literature. He is undoubtedly considered to be one of the best writers on success of all time. Personally, I would say he is the best one in terms of practicality of his thoughts.

He is famous especially for his awesome book called Think and grow rich.

It’s still a bestseller and you’ll see very quickly why. Let’s go through his biggest thoughts and gain some insight into his practical philosophy on how to achieve success in our lives. The reading of this book itself is full of motivational, positive and energizing vibes! However, be aware that the thoughts of NH are very influential and addictive. You may become mega successful after acknowledging his principles.

“A goal is a dream with a deadline”

 

When defining your goals you must be specific enough. It is crucial to be able to know where you should focus on your next steps. You should have a clear vision and a direction. Draw a map, take a compass and follow your path.

 

 

“Our only limitations are those we set up in our own minds”

 

We are our biggest mentors. We are fully in charge when it comes to our decision making process. We are fully responsible for our lives. Whether you think that you can, or that you can’t, you are correct in both cases. That is actually another paraphrased quote of H. Ford, also a very successful man!

 

“A quitter never wins and a winner never quits.”

 

Another very strong quote. The key there is to know about a very important life lesson on perspective. You will become a loser only when you accept it. If you won’t accept your failure as the final result, you will never lose.

 

 

“Every adversity, every failure, every heartache carries with it the seed of  an equal or greater benefit.”

 

Everything that happens to you has its own purpose. Someone calls it faith, someone coincidence and others call it life. Be proactive, open your eyes and learn from your hardships. What seems to be negative now might be the biggest reason and determinant of your future success. It’s up to you. Your actions will decide about your destiny. The life is 10% of what happens to us and 90 % of how you react.

 

 

“The way of success is the way of continuous pursuit of knowledge.”

 

In order to become successful we need to stay a student. We should be craving to know more. Our minds should be open to gaining new knowledge, even if we look like a fool. Question everyone about anything and let the wisdom of others inspire you. Become a lifelong learner and harvest the seeds of your gained knowledge. The world is full of rich people that would love to share their wealth with the passionate listeners. You’ve been given two ears and one mouth. Think about what is more effective to use.

 

 

“Do not wait: the time will never be ‘just right’. Start where you stand, and work whatever tools you may have at your command and better tools will be found as you go along.”

 

You need to understand this. If you want to succeed then you have to begin now. It doesn’t matter how bad your situation is until you start doing something actively. This is so important. Focus on what you can do and do it right now! The best time was yesterday, the second is now. Don’t postpone your decisions. You don’t want to regret as you’ll get older. Thank Napoleon later.

 

 

“If you can’t do great things, do small things in a great way.”

 

If you want to be great, you need to start focusing on the smallest details. That’s the way you’ll make an impact.

 

 

“You are the master of your destiny. You can influence, direct and control your own environment. You can make your life what you want it to be.”

 

Another awesome inspiring quote. It says basically that you should understand and remind yourself about the importance of the power you have. Do not underestimate yourself in terms of your influence. You can change your life completely on your own. All you need is your own positive attitude. Can you make yourself happy? If you don’t like your environment then change it. It’s very simple. Just don’t be afraid of change. Change means progress… So make it happen!

“The starting point of all achievement is DESIRE. Keep this constantly in mind. Weak desire brings weak results, just as a small fire makes a small amount of heat.”

What drives you? Let your passion rise and drive you through your following steps. Be aware of what makes you happy and what you truly love. If you are truly passionate about something, follow your heart and senses in order to achieve what must be achieved. Listen to your gut feelings and let yourself fall into the deepest state of happiness in the presence – flow.

 

“Action is the real measure of intelligence.”

How does reading books help you, if you don’t actually do what they recommend. Why do you even bother learning when you don’t change anything and live the same way as you lived before. Don’t be the person who constantly preaches water in public and drinks wine quietly in the living room. After all, the only person you are cheating is you. And you don’t want to be cheated and deceived.

Become wiser with Albert Einstein

It’s really challenging to decide where to start, as this man is truly one of a kind. His engagement to many global problems combined with his unique personality made him undoubtedly the most famous scientist of all ages and probably the only scientist who is admired for his quotes all around the world. His attitude towards life and his general philosophy is still unbelievably inspiring. His timeless thoughts are worth mentioning and fully deserve to be remembered forever. Let’s take a look at them!
einstein-0417-social.jpg.480x0_q71_crop-scale

“Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value.”

Every success comes with the right values. Our aim should be to set ourselves the correct values we believe in and focus on them. By focusing on the right values you can deliver yourself to your successful ending much faster than if you would only concentrate on the result from the beginning. Let the way full the right values be your goal. You’ll feel more satisfied than ever.

“All religions, arts and sciences are branches of the same tree.”

After all we are all human species. We’ve all got the same roots. Do not forget this!Reminding ourselves about this is very important. Make sure everyone knows this! Especially when interacting with strangers. They are human as well. They do feel emotions too. They are fearful and happy exactly like you. The culture might be the only thing differentiating them from you. In a nutshell, AE encourages us to cooperate. Let’s be tolerant and help each other. Don’t forget it, you’ll become a better person just by repeating it to yourself from time to time. We can make the world a better place simply by not neglecting the art of communication.

“In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.”

When you’re down and don’t see any reasonable way-out, that is the point where the things start to change. You just have to push yourself and persist on your way. Don’t doubt yourself and never give up. Times of the greatest successes follow the times of great hardships! Just persist.

“Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school.”

Yep, that’s it! Why should we think that education is the stuff you “learn” at school? Education is completely different compared to what most people think. To educate ourselves means to learn something. At school you don’t actually learn that much. You rather study. You study on your exams, forget it and study for another. The way we study today is mostly based on memorizing and repeating the information. However, that has actually nothing to do with the process of learning. Learning is an active process!

The capacity of our brains is not unlimited, so we are always forgetting the unnecessary stuff (basically everything from school) and leaving our brains waiting for the important lessons. However, they don’t come to us at school too much. Let’s embrace the fire of desire in us and start with the real learning.

“A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.”

This is often the main problem of many of us. The vast majority of people deals with the problem of being afraid of new things. However, life is about changes. Who can adapt the fastest wins. Just imagine how far we have gone as human species. It’s amazing, but logical. As Darwin said “It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is most adaptable to change.” So true!

“I speak to everyone in the same way, whether he is the garbage man or the president of the university.”

Another very important point of view. Sometimes we all have to deal with arrogance of the authorities who think they have the right to talk down to us. Let’s be humble and deal with all people in the same way as if you would deal with yourself. We are all even. After all, everyone is going to die at some point of his life and our culture won’t change a thing. Be grateful and humble when interacting with people. You are no better than them.

“It’s not that I’m so smart, it’s just that I stay with problems longer.”

What Albert tries to say here is the huge importance of persistence. If you want to be truly successful you need to adapt the mindset based on an enormous effort and endure with that. You can fail 200 times, but the attempt with the number 201 could be the first one successful. However, you never know when that attempt will come. All you know is that one day you’ll get there. Exciting? That is the genuine beauty of life.

“Weak people revenge. Strong people forgive. Intelligent people ignore.”

Sometimes dealing with ignorant people needs ignorance too. We cannot persuade the ones who are not opened to be persuaded. Your energy should be saved for the circle of your influence so don’t waste it when dealing with the fools. If your opponent doesn’t show open-mindedness and is full of disrespect, why would you interact with such a person. Be alone rather than in a group full of fools.

“What is right is not always popular, and what is popular is not always right.”

Just try to accept the fact that the popular things aren’t always the best solutions to your problems. What is popular is spreaded all around the world. That should be alarming, because you don’t want to be mundane and average. You want to adapt a minority mindset. (that is by the way a very helpful youtube channel)

“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”

We are all unique in some way. All we need is to bear in our minds the fact that the other person has his own strengths and weaknesses and we should be willing to accept them as they are. By developing tolerance and empathy, we can learn to better understand our surroundings and we can help them much more! The fact that we are different should make us help each other, not compare ourselves and envy each other. Let’s show them what they can do and help them grow!

Albert-Einstein-quotes-Genius1

We highly recommend you one of the amazing books from Einstein: Ideas and Opinions 

Bonus one!

“Education is not the learning of facts, it’s rather the training of the mind to think.”

We’ll let this one resonate with you…

Cheers!
