Heidi Grant Halvorson Quotes

Hope you enjoy the following quotes written by Heidi Grant Halvorson :

"Self-control is the ability to guide your actions in pursuit of a goal - to persevere and stay on course, despite temptations, distractions and the demands of competing goals."

"Think back to the achievements in your own life - the ones you are most proud of.  I'll bet you needed to work hard, persist despite difficulty, and stay focused, when it would have been much easier for you to just relax and not bother."

"People who are very successful in one or more areas of their life are successful precisely because that's where they devote the bulk of their capacity for self-control."

"Set yourself difficult goals and your performance will rise to the challenge."

"When people think about what they are doing in why terms, they are guided by the big picture, their smaller, and everyday actions become a part of something larger and more important."

"So thinking about your goal with a 'what' mind-set leads you to focus on the specific action you need to take, which helps you to act more quickly in achieving your goal."

"So the world loves an optimist and the good news is that optimism comes pretty naturally to most of us."

"Believing you will succeed really does make you more likely to succeed."

"No matter who they are and what they are trying to do, we find that successful people not only have confidence that they will eventually succeed, but are equally confident that they will have a tough time getting there."

"If you don't believe you'll succeed, mental contrasting will lead you to disengage from the goal."

"Achieving isn't just about knowing how to reach your goals - it's at least as much about pursuing the kinds of goals that will help you to develop your full potential and actually enjoy the process of getting there."

"It won't surprise you to learn that your beliefs are important influences on the goals you adopt."

"Interestingly, it's not just whether or not you think you have ability that matters.  In fact, what seems to be most important is whether or not you think you can get ability."

"Mistakes don't mean you are stupid, they are full of information that can help you to learn."

"Consequently, we work best when as much of what we are doing can be delegated to the unconscious mind as possible."

"To keep yourself motivated, fill your environment with reminders and triggers that will keep your unconcious mind working toward your goal, even when your conscious mind is distracted by other things."

"That people tend to do well when they believe they are going to do well."
