Earl Nightingale was one of the first motivational speakers that I listened to regularly. I took a number of his recordings out of the library and listened to him repeatedly. I found his messages—and his gravely voice—to be very comforting. He instilled in me a sense of hope, which was something I really needed at that time. Because of this, he has a special place in my life.
To honor him, here are 9 quotes to enjoy:
~Don’t let the fear of the time it will take to accomplish something stand in the way of your doing it. The time will pass anyway; we might just as well put that passing time to the best possible use.
~You’ll find boredom where there is the absence of a good idea.
~ A great attitude does much more than turn on the lights in our worlds; it seems to magically connect us to all sorts of serendipitous opportunities that were somehow absent before the change.
~Work never killed anyone. It’s worry that does the damage. And the worry would disappear if we’d just settle down and do the work.
~The more intensely we feel about an idea or a goal, the more assuredly the idea, buried deep in our subconscious, will direct us along the path to its fulfillment.
~We can let circumstances rule us, or we can take charge and rule our lives from within.
~We all walk in the dark and each of us must learn to turn on his or her own light.
~Don’t concern yourself with the money. Be of service … build … work … dream … create! Do this and you’ll find there is no limit to the prosperity and abundance that will come to you.
~You are, at this moment, standing right in the middle of your own acres of diamonds.
I hope these quotes can help you as they have helped me over the years.
