Best Brian Tracy Quotes
Here are some of the best Brian Tracy of all time...
"A goal, however, is something distinctly different from a wish. It is clear, written, and specific. It can be quickly and easily described to another person. You can measure it, and you know when you have achieved it or not."- Brian Tracy, Goals!
"You become what you think about most of the time. Your outer world ultimately becomes a reflection of your inner world. Your outer world of experience mirrors back to you what you think about most of the time. Whatever you think about continuously emerges in your reality."- Brian Tracy, Goals!
"The key to dealing with this concern about what other people are thinking is to realize that no one is really thinking about you at all. Most people are so preoccupied with themselves and the details of their own lives that they have little or no time to think very much about others. It has been said, “If you really knew how little others think about you, you would be insulted.""- Brian Tracy, Goals!
"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
"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
"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!
"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!
"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!
"It turns out that optimists have four special behaviors, all learned through practice and repetition. 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!
"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!
"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
