Anthony Robbins
  1. It is in your moments of decision that your destiny is shaped.

  2. The secret of success is learning how to use pain and pleasure instead of having pain and pleasure use you. If you do that, you're in control of your life. If you don't, life controls you.

  3. The only true security in life comes from knowing that every single day you are improving yourself in some way. I don't worry about maintaining the quality of my life, because every day I work on improving it.

  4. Once we effect a change, we should reinforce it immediately. Then, we have to condition our nervous system to succeed not just once, but consistently.

  5. The first belief we must have if we're going to create change quickly is that we can change now.

  6. The greatest leverage you can create for yourself is the pain that comes from inside, not outside. Knowing that you have failed to live up to your own standards for your life is the ultimate pain.

  7. The difference between acting badly or brilliantly is not based on your ability, but on the state of your mind and/or body in any given moment.

  8. Focus on where you want to go, not on what you fear.

  9. You've got to be in a determined state in order to succeed.

  10. My definition of success is to live your life in a way that causes you to feel tons of pleasure and very little pain.

  11. All that you really want in life is to change how you feel.

  12. Plan for pleasure for each and every day.

  13. Remember, ask and you shall receive. If you ask a terrible question, you'll get a terrible answer. Your mental computer is ever ready to serve you, and whatever question you give it, it will surely come up with an answer.

  14. A genuine quality of life comes from consistent, quality questions.

  15. You and I have that same power at our disposal every moment of the day. At the moment, the questions that we ask ourselves can shape our perception of who we are, what we're capable of, and what we're willing to do to achieve our dreams.

  16. Determination is the wake-up call to the human will.

  17. It's not just getting a goal that matters, but the quality of life you experience along the way.

  18. What kind of person will I have to become in order to achieve all that I want?

  19. All too often, the security of a mediocre present is more comfortable than the adventure of trying to be more in the future.

  20. People will do more to avoid pain than they will do to gain pleasure.

  21. The truth is that nothing has to happen in order for you to feel good.

  22. Never assume it comes to rules. Communicate.

  23. Repetition is the mother of skill.

  24. Limited references create a limited life. If you want to expand your life, you must expand your references by pursuing ideas and experiences that wouldn't be a part of your life if you didn't consciously seek them out.

  25. Loss is imaginary. Nothing ever disappears in the universe; it only changes form.

  26. Leaders are readers.

  27. Expand your references, and you'll immediately expand your life.

  28. Everything in life happens for a reason and a purpose, and it serves us.

  29. It's the moments of our life that shape us.

  30. The beliefs that we use to define our own individuality, what makes us unique - good, bad, or indifferent - from other individuals.

  31. Your capability is constant, but how much of it you use depends upon the identity you have for yourself.

  32. Time and again, researchers have shown that students' capabilities are powerfully impacted by the identities they develop for themselves as the result of teachers' belief in their level of intelligence.

  33. The kind of person other people perceive you to be controls their responses to you.

  34. We look at what we do to determine who we are.

  35. Only those who have learned the power of sincere and selfless contribution experience life's deepest joy: true fulfillment.
