David Joseph Schwartz Quotes

Hope you enjoy the following quotes written by David Joseph Schwartz:

"Study the lives of successful people and you'll discover this: all the excuses made by the mediocre fellow could be but aren't made by the successful person."

"What really matters is not how much intelligence you have but how you use what you do have."

"The thinking that guides your intelligence is much more important than the quantity of your brain power. Let me repeat, for this is vitally important: the thinking that guides your intelligence is much more important than how much intelligence you may have."

"With a positive, optimistic, and cooperative attitude a person with an IQ of 100 will earn more money, win more respect, and achieve more success than a negative, pessimistic, uncooperative individual with an IQ of 120."

"Just enough sense to stick with something—a chore, task, project—until it's completed, pays off much better than idle intelligence, even if idle intelligence be of genius calibre."

"Remind yourself several times daily, "My attitudes are more important than my intelligence." At work and at home practise positive attitudes. See the reasons why you can do it, not the reasons why you can't. Develop an "I'm winning" attitude. Put your intelligence to creative positive use. Use it to find ways to win, not to prove you will lose."

"Invest future time in doing what you really want to do. It's only too late when you let your mind go negative and think it's too late. Stop thinking "I should have started years ago." That's failure thinking. Instead think, "I'm going to start
now, my best years are ahead of me." That's the way successful people think."

"Don't be a wishful thinker. Don't waste your mental muscles dreaming of an effortless way to win success. We don't become successful simply through luck."

"Success comes from doing those things and mastering those principles that produce success. Don't count on luck for promotions, victories, the good things in life. Luck simply isn't designed to deliver these good things. Instead, just
concentrate on developing those qualities in yourself that will make you a winner."

"Yes, fear is real. And we must recognize it exists before we can conquer it."

"Your brain is very much like a bank. Every day you make thought deposits in your "mind bank." These thought deposits grow and become your memory. When you settle down to think or when you face a problem, in effect you say to your memory bank, "What do I already know about this?""

"Deposit only positive thoughts in your memory bank. Let's face it squarely.  Everyone encounters plenty of unpleasant, embarrassing, and discouraging situations. But unsuccessful and successful people deal with these situations in directly opposite ways."

"Unsuccessful people take them to heart, so to speak.  They dwell on the unpleasant situations, thereby giving them a good start in their memory. They don't take their minds away from them. At night the unpleasant situation is the last thing they think about."

"Confident, successful people, on the other hand, "don't give it another thought."  Successful people specialize in putting positive thoughts into their memory bank."

"Doing what's right keeps your conscience satisfied. And this builds self confidence.  When we do what is known to be wrong, two negative things happen. First, we feel guilt and this guilt eats away confidence. Second, other people sooner or later find out , and lose confidence in us."

"Big thinkers train themselves to see not just what is, but what can be."

"To do anything, we must first believe it can be done. Believing something can be done sets the mind in motion to find a way to do it."
