Promises that you make to yourself are often like the Japanese plum tree - they bear no fruit.
Talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person you meet.
Promise yourself to be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind. To talk health, happiness and prosperity to every person you meet. To make all your friends feel that there is some thing in them.
Be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.
Forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the world, not in loud words but great deeds. To live in faith that the whole world is on your side so long as you are true to the best that is in you.
Promise to be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit trouble to press on you.
Be so busy Improving your self that you have no time to criticize others.
Make your optimism come true.
To give so much time to the improvement of yourself
That you have no time to criticise others,
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear,
And too happy to permit the presence of trouble.
When you set a goal, write it down and then it's like making a promise to yourself.
You can make a thousand promises to yourself that you'll take that same fantastic love and give it to someone else, but the moment you see that person with someone else, it's like a gut full of razorblades. It never gets easier. And it shouldn't, really.
To be responsible, keep your promises to others. To be successful, keep your promises to yourself.
A dream is a vision, a goal is a promise. You can keep your promises to yourself by remaining flexible, focused, and committed.
There is one prevailing key to success. Do what you resolve to do. Then you'll be a success. If you can discipline yourself to follow through on your promises to yourself, your self-esteem goes up. Persistence is self-discipline in action. Self-discipline is the foundation of self-confidence .
Lost motivation means that you broke promises to yourself and haven't corrected them yet. You need to believe in yourself again. This can only happen when you start fulfilling the small promises you make to yourself.
