Alex Lickerman MD Quotes

Hope you enjoy the following quotes written by Alex Lickerman MD:

"At other times, the true obstacle isn't the obstacles in front of us but the obstacle inside of us.  Perhaps it's our inflexibility, our arrogance, or our fear, but when victory over external barriers is contingent upon victory over internal ones, the greatest benefit a situation has to offer us is wisdom."

"Wisdom is so powerful, in fact, that it can even put a halt to suffering without changing the circumstances that cause it."

"An undefeated mind isn't one that never feels discouraged or despairing; it's one that continues on in spite of it."

"Extraordinary people may be born, but they can also be made."

"If we think of a mission as a car that can take us to a more resilient place, then resolve or commitment must be considered the engine that makes it go."

"People who succeed, in other words, don't succeed because they're necessarily smarter or more creative than people who don't.  They succeed because they have an increased tolerance for failure, paradoxically suffering even more failures than people who don't succeed."

"The greater our belief that we can do something, the greater the likelihood we can actually do it."

"The reason optimism yields results isn't that we necessarily tend to try harder when we think a goal is achievable, rather, we tend to try more often."

"Nothing keeps us believing success is possible, even in the face of failure, like overestimating our abilities."

"Studies show that when high expectations for success are warranted, that is, when they're based on accurate appraisals of both our abilities and the circumstances we face, such optimism does in fact become a self-fulfilling prophecy, increasing the actual likelihood of success."

"The moment you resolve to be victorious, every nerve and fibre in your being will immediately orient itself toward your success."

"Studies show that unrealistic goals inspire greater effort than do goals that are more pragmatic."

"Research shows that people who take on difficult goals outperform people who take on easy goals, placing difficult goals, in many cases, paradoxically within closer reach than easy ones."

"Once we make a determination, whether to pursue our life's mission or merely our most trivial wish, we typically begin to take action."

"We forget, or fail to realize that genuine happiness doesn't come from having things but rather from a strong life force forged by adversity, a life force that enables us to enjoy all of life."

"Finding a way to make ourselves feel good in the present also improves our ability to survive and thrive in the future."

"In short, gratitude represents a powerful tool to help us construct and maintain an undefeated mind.  It improves our well-being and buffers us against a wide range of maladies, including dependence, drug abuse, posttraumatic stress disorder and even bulimia."

  • The greatest gift you can give yourself is to listen to yourself and start to make changes before change is forced upon you.
  • Nicky Hayes
