Brian Tracy Quotes

Difficulties come not to obstruct, but to instruct.

— Brian Tracy

“No matter how many personal productivity techniques you master, there will always be more to do than you can ever accomplish in the time you have available to you, no matter how much it is.”

— Brian Tracy, Eat That Frog!

“I had fallen into the mental trap of assuming that people who were doing better than me were actually better than me. What I learned was that this was not necessarily true. They were just doing things differently, and what they had learned to do, within reason, I could learn as well.”

— Brian Tracy, Eat That Frog!

“The ability to concentrate single-mindedly on your most important task, to do it well and to finish it completely, is the key to great success, achievement, respect, status, and happiness in life.”

— Brian Tracy, Eat That Frog!

“The first rule of frog eating is this: If you have to eat two frogs, eat the ugliest one first.
The second rule of frog eating is this: If you have to eat a live frog at all, it doesn’t pay to sit and look at it for very long.”

— Brian Tracy, Eat That Frog!

“Your success in life and work will be determined by the kinds of habits that you develop over time. The habit of setting priorities, overcoming procrastination, and getting on with your most important task is a mental and physical skill.”

— Brian Tracy, Eat That Frog!

“All improvements in your outer life begin with improvements on the inside, in your mental pictures.”

— Brian Tracy, Eat That Frog!

— Brian Tracy, Eat That Frog!

“You can use three questions on a regular basis to keep yourself focussed on completing your most important tasks on schedule.
The first question is, ‘What are my highest value activities?’
The second question is, ‘What can I and only I do that if done well will make a real difference?’
The third question is, ‘What is the most valuable use of my time right now?'”

— Brian Tracy, Eat That Frog!

“Fully 85 percent of your happiness in life will come from happy relationships with other people, especially those closest to you, as well as the members of your family. The critical determinant of the quality of your relationships is the amount of time that you spend face-to-face with the people you love, and who love you in return.”

— Brian Tracy, Eat That Frog!

“It is the quality of time at work that counts and the quantity of time at home that matters.”

— Brian Tracy, Eat That Frog!

“Get it 80 percent right and then correct it later. Run it up the flagpole and see if anyone salutes. Don’t expect perfection the first time or even the first few times. Be prepared to fail over and over before you get it right.”

— Brian Tracy, Eat That Frog!

“Feed yourself as you would feed a world-class athlete before a competition because, in many respects, that’s what you are before starting work each day.”

— Brian Tracy, Eat That Frog!

First, optimists look for the good in every situation.
Second, optimists always seek the valuable lesson in every setback or difficulty.
Third, optimists always look for the solution to every problem.
Fourth, optimists think and talk continually about their goals.”

— Brian Tracy, Eat That Frog!

“I have several friends who have become best-selling authors by simply resolving to write one page or even one paragraph per day until the book was completed.”

— Brian Tracy, Eat That Frog!

“One of the best work habits of all if to get up early and work at home in the morning for several hours. You can get three times as much work done at home without interruptions as you ever could in a busy office where you are surrounded by people and bombarded by phone calls.”

— Brian Tracy, Eat That Frog!

“If you do what other successful people do, over and over again, nothing in the world can stop you from eventually getting the same results that they do. And if you don’t, nothing can help you.”

— Brian Tracy, The Psychology of Selling

“Small differences in ability can lead to enormous differences in results.”

— Brian Tracy, The Psychology of Selling

“There are two major obstacles to making and closing any sale. They are both mental. They are the fear of failure and the fear of rejection.”

— Brian Tracy, The Psychology of Selling

“This fear of failure and disappointment is the number one reason why customers do not buy. So, one of the most important things you can do in the process of building trust and credibility is to reduce the customer’s fear to the point where he has no hesitation about going ahead with your offer.”

— Brian Tracy, The Psychology of Selling

“Perhaps the two most fundamental qualities for success in sales are boldness and persistence.”

— Brian Tracy, The Psychology of Selling

“The primary emotion in sales success is enthusiasm. Enthusiasm accounts for 50 percent or more of all sales ability. One of the very best definitions of a sale is ‘a transfer of enthusiasm.'”
