“I love you,’ Buttercup said. ‘I know this must come as something of a surprise to you, since all I’ve ever done is scorn you and degrade you and taunt you, but I have loved you for several hours now, and every second, more. I thought an hour ago that I loved you more than any woman has ever loved a man, but a half hour after that I knew that what I felt before was nothing compared to what I felt then. But ten minutes after that, I understood that my previous love was a puddle compared to the high seas before a storm. Your eyes are like that, did you know? Well they are. How many minutes ago was I? Twenty? Had I brought my feelings up to then? It doesn’t matter.’ Buttercup still could not look at him. The sun was rising behind her now; she could feel the heat on her back, and it gave her courage. ‘I love you so much more now than twenty minutes ago that there cannot be comparison. I love you so much more now then when you opened your hovel door, there cannot be comparison. There is no room in my body for anything but you. My arms love you, my ears adore you, my knees shake with blind affection. My mind begs you to ask it something so it can obey. Do you want me to follow you for the rest of your days? I will do that. Do you want me to crawl? I will crawl. I will be quiet for you or sing for you, or if you are hungry, let me bring you food, or if you have thirst and nothing will quench it but Arabian wine, I will go to Araby, even though it is across the world, and bring a bottle back for your lunch. Anything there is that I can do for you, I will do for you; anything there is that I cannot do, I will learn to do. I know I cannot compete with the Countess in skills or wisdom or appeal, and I saw the way she looked at you. And I saw the way you looked at her. But remember, please, that she is old and has other interests, while I am seventeen and for me there is only you. Dearest Westley–I’ve never called you that before, have I?–Westley, Westley, Westley, Westley, Westley,–darling Westley, adored Westley, sweet perfect Westley, whisper that I have a chance to win your love.’ And with that, she dared the bravest thing she’d ever done; she looked right into his eyes.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride

“I’ve been saying it so long to you, you just wouldn’t listen. Every time you said ‘Farm Boy do this’ you thought I was answering ‘As you wish’ but that’s only because you were hearing wrong. ‘I love you’ was what it was, but you never heard.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride

And now I see that that vision who kept me company in my loneliness was a hag compared to the beauty now before me.” -Westley Princess Bride Quotes
Enough about my beauty.” Buttercup said.”Everybody always talks about how beautiful I am. I’ve got a mind, Westley. Talk about that.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride

“And that’s when she put her book down. And looked at me. And said it: “Life isn’t fair, Bill. we tell our children that it is, but it’s a terrible thing to do. It’s not only a lie, it’s a cruel lie. Life is not fair, and it never has been, and it’s never going to be.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride
“Westley: This is true love – you think this happens every day?” William Goldman, The Princess Bride
“It was only when the giant got halfway down the incline that he suddenly, happily, burst into flame and continued his trip saying, “NO SURVIVORS, NO SURVIVORS!” in a manner that could only indicate deadly sincerity.
“Everyone had told her, since she became a princess-in-training, that she was very likely the most beautiful woman in the world. Now she was going to be the richest and the most powerful as well.
Don’t expect too much from life, Buttercup told herself as she rode along. Learn to be satisfied with what you have.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride
“Flailing and thrashing, Buttercup wept and tossed and paced and wept some more, and there have been three great cases of jealousy since David of Galilee was first afflicted with the emotion when he could no longer stand the fact that his neighbor Saul’s cactus outshone his own. (Originally, jealousy pertained solely to plants, other people’s cactus or ginkgoes, or, later, when there was grass, grass, which is why, even to this day, we say that someone is green with jealousy.) Buttercup’s case rated a close fourth on the all-time list.
It was a very long and very green night.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride
“It was seeing him happily burning and advancing that startled the Brute Squad to screaming. And once that happened, why, everybody panicked and ran…” William Goldman, The Princess Bride
“I just know once you’re over your emotional outbursts, you’ll come up with-‘
I mean if we even had a wheelbarrow, that would be something,’ Westley said.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride
“Westley and I are joined by the bond of love and you cannot track that, not with a thousand bloodhounds, and you cannot break it, not with a thousand swords.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride
“The boys. The beef-witted featherbrained rattleskulled clod-pated dim-domed noodle-noggined sapheaded lunk-knobbed boys. How could anybody accuse her of stealing them? Why would anybody want them anyway?” William Goldman, The Princess Bride
“Westly, Westly, Westly, Westly, Westly,–darling Westly, adored Westly, sweet perfect Westly, whisper that I have a chance to win your love.” And with that, she dared the bravest thing she’d ever done: she looked right into his eyes.
He closed the door in her face.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride
“Inconceivable!” William Goldman, The Princess Bride
“Enough about my beauty,” Buttercup said. “Everybody always talks about how beautiful I am. I’ve got a mind, Westley. Talk about that.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride
“I love you. Okay? Want it louder? I LOVE YOU. Spell it out, should I? I ell-oh-vee-ee why-oh-you. Want it backward? You love I.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride
“While he was watching the ships, Buttercup shoved him with all her strength remaining. Down went the man in black. “You can die too for all I care,” she said, and then she turned away.
Words followed her. Whispered from afar, weak and warm and familiar. “As…you…wish…” William Goldman, The Princess Bride
Fezzik grabbed onto Inigo in panic and they both pivoted, staring at the man in black, who was silent again. ‘”True love,” he said,’ Inigo cried. ‘You heard him – true love is what he wants to come back for. That’s certainly worthwhile.’
‘Sonny, don’t you tell me what’s worthwhile – true love is the best thing in the world, except for cough drops. Everybody knows that.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride
“Well, I’m an abridger, so I’m entitled to a few ideas of my own. Did they make it? Was the pirate ship there? You can answer it for yourself, but, for me, I say yes it was. And yes, they got away. And got their strength back and had lots of adventures and more than their share of laughs.
But that doesn’t mean I think they had a happy ending, either. Because, in my opinion, anyway, they squabbled a lot, and Buttercup lost her looks eventually, and one day Fezzik lost a fight and some hot-shot kid whipped Inigo with a sword and Westley was never able to really sleep sound because of Humperdinck maybe being on the trail.
I’m not trying to make this a downer, understand. I mean, I really do think that love is the best thing in the world, next to cough drops. But I also have to say, for the umpty-umpth time, that life isn’t fair. It’s just fairer than death, that’s all.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride
“Inigo was in despair.
Hard to find on the map (this was after maps) not because cartographers didn’t know of its existence, but because when they visited to measure its precise dimensions, they became so depressed they began to drink and question everything, most notably why anyone would want to be something as stupid as a cartographer. It required constant travel, no one ever knew your name, and, most of all, why bother? There grew up, then, a gentleman’s agreement among mapmakers of the period to keep the place as secret as possible, lest tourists flock there and die. (Should you insist on paying a visit, it’s closer to the Baltic States than most places.)” William Goldman, The Princess Bride
“I mean if we even had a wheelbarrow, that would be something.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride
“Let’s look on the bright side: we’re having an adventure, Fezzik, and most people live and die without being as lucky as we are.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride
“The hollowness was in his arms and the world was snowing.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride
“Never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride
“When was the last time you read a book? The truth now. And picture books don’t count-I mean something with print in it.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride
“I guess the most amazing thing about crying though is that when you’re in it, you think it’ll go on forever but it never really lasts half what you think. Not in terms of real time. In terms of real emotions, it’s worse than you think, but not by the clock.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride
“Buttercup’s mother hesitated, then put her stew spoon down. (This was after stew, but so is everything. When the first man first clambered from the slime and made his first home on land, what he had for supper that first night was stew.)” William Goldman, The Princess Bride
“Westley closed his eyes. There was pain coming and he had to be ready for it. He had to prepare his brain, he had to get his mind controlled and safe from their efforts, so that they could not break him. He would not let them break him. He would hold together against anything and all. If only they gave him sufficient time to make ready, he knew he could defeat pain. It turned out they gave him sufficient time (it was months before the Machine was ready).
But they broke him anyway.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride
“Inside and out, Westley’s world was ripping apart and he could do nothing but crack along with it.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride
“Life is pain. Anyone who says otherwise is selling something.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride
“The tears that kept Buttercup company the remainder of the day were not at all like those that had blinded her into the tree trunk. Those were noisy and hot; they pulsed. These were silent and steady and all they did was remind her that she wasn’t good enough. She was seventeen, and every male she’d ever known had crumbled at her feet and it meant nothing. The one time it really mattered, she wasn’t good enough.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride
“He was the mighty Fezzik, lover of rhymes, and you did not give up, no matter what.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride
“There have been five great kisses since 1642 B.C. when Saul and Delilah Korn’s inadvertent discovery swept across Western civilization. (Before then couples hooked thumbs.) And the precise rating of kisses is a terribly difficult thing, often leading to great controversy, because although everyone agrees with the formula of affection times purity times intensity times duration, no one has ever been completely satisfied with how much weight each element should receive. But on any system, there are five that everyone agrees deserve full marks. Well, this one left them all behind.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride
“I mean, I really do think that love is the best thing in the world, except for cough drops. But I also have to say, for the umpty-umpth time, that life isn’t fair. It’s just fairer than death, that’s all.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride
“I can’t keep my head above water one minute to the next: it’s not just the parties and the goo-gooing with what’s-her-name, I’ve got the decide how long the Five Hundredth Anniversary Parade is going to be and where does it start and when does it start and which nobleman gets to march in front of which other nobleman so that everyone’s still speaking to me at the end of it, plus I’ve got a wife to murder and a country to frame for it, plus I’ve got to get the war going once that’s all happened, and all this is stuff I’ve got to do myself. Here’s what it all comes down to: I’m just swamped, Ty.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride
“Dummy, dummy, go out now and fill your tummy.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride
“Fool!” cried the hunchback. “You fell victim to one of the classic blunders. The most famous is ‘Never get involved in a land war in Asia,’ but only slightly less well known is this: ‘Never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride
“Have fun storming the castle!” William Goldman, The Princess Bride
“You mock my pain! Life is pain, anyone who says otherwise is obviously selling something!” William Goldman, The Princess Bride
“Do you love me, Westley? Is that it?’
He couldn’t believe it. ‘Do I love you? My God, if your love were a grain of sand, mine would be a universe of beaches. If your love were-‘
‘I don’t understand the first one yet,’ Buttercup interrupted. She was starting to get very excited now. ‘Let me get this straight. Are you saying my love is the size of a grain of sand and yours is this other thing? Images just confuse me so-is this universal business of yours bigger than my sand? Help me, Westley. I have the feeling we’re on the verge of something just terribly important.’
‘I have stayed these years in my hovel because of you. I have taught myself languages because of you. I have made my body strong because I thought you might be pleased by a strong body. I have lived my life with only the prayer that some sudden dawn you might glance in my direction. I have not known a moment in years when the sight of you did not send my heart careening against my rib cage. I have not known a night when your visage did not accompany me to sleep. There has not been a morning when you did not flutter behind my waking eyelids….Is any of this getting through to you, Buttercup, or do you want me to go on for a while?’
‘There has not been-‘
‘If you’re teasing me, Westley, I’m just going to kill you.’
‘How can you even dream I might be teasing?’
‘Well, you haven’t once said you loved me.’
‘That’s all you need? Easy. I love you. Okay? Want it louder? I love you. Spell it out, should I? I ell-oh-vee-ee why-oh-you. Want it backward? You love I.’
‘You are teasing now; aren’t you?’
‘A little maybe; I’ve been saying it so long to you, you just wouldn’t listen. Every time you said ‘Farm boy do this’ you thought I was answering ‘As you wish’ but that’s only because you were hearing wrong. ‘I love you’ was what it was, but you never heard, and you never heard.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride
“You are trying to kidnap what I have rightfully stolen, and I think it quite ungentlemanly.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride
“You think this is a trap then?” the Count asked.
“I always think everything is a trap until proven otherwise,” the Prince answered. “Which is why I’m still alive.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride
“People don’t remember me. Really. It’s not a paranoid thing; I just have this habit of slipping through memories. It doesn’t bother me all that much, except I guess that’s a lie; it does. For some reason, I test very high on forgettability.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride
“I could give you my word as a Spaniard,” Inigo said. Princess Bride Quotes
“No good,” the man in black replied. “I’ve known too many Spaniards.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride
“She loves you,” the Prince cried. “She loves you still and you love her, so think of that–think of this too: in all this world, you might have been happy, genuinely happy. Not one couple in a century has that chance, not really, no matter what the storybooks say, but you could have had it, and so, I would think, no one will ever suffer a loss as great as you.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride
“Buttercup’s mother whirled on him. ‘Did you forget to pay your taxes?’ (This was after taxes. But everything is after taxes. Taxes were here even before stew.)” William Goldman, The Princess Bride
“Liar! Liar!” shrieked suddenly from the now open trap door.
Miracle Max whirled. “Back, Witch–” he commanded.
“I’m not a witch, I’m your wife–” she was advancing on him now, an ancient tiny fury–“and after what you’ve just done I don’t think I want to be that any more–” William Goldman, The Princess Bride
“The enemy is always in the mind.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride
“I must be overtired’, Buttercup managed. ‘The excitement and all.’
‘Rest then’, her mother cautioned. ‘Terrible things can happen when you’re overtired. I was overtired the night your father proposed.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride , Princess Bride Quotes
“I’m going to tell you something once and then whether you die is strictly up to you,” Westley said, lying pleasantly on the bed. “What I’m going to tell you is this: drop your sword, and if you do, then I will leave with this baggage here”-he glanced at Buttercup-“and you will be tied up but not fatally, and will be free to go about your business. And if you choose to fight, well, then, we will not both leave alive.” Princess Bride Quotes
You are only alive now because you said ‘to the pain.’ I want that phrase explained.”
My pleasure. To the pain means this: if we duel and you win, death for me. If we duel and I win, life for you. But life on my terms. The first thing you lose will be your feet. Below the ankle. You will have stumps available to use within six months. Then your hands, at the wrists. They heal somewhat quicker. Five months is a fair average. Next your nose. No smell of dawn for you. Followed by your tongue. Deeply cut away. Not even a stump left. And then your left eye-“
And then my right eye, and then my ears, and shall we get on with it?” the Prince said.
Wrong!” Westley’s voice rang across the room. “Your ears you keep, so that every shriek of every child shall be yours to cherish-every babe that weeps in fear at your approach, every woman that cries ‘Dear God, what is that thing?’ will reverberate forever with your perfect ears. That is what ‘to the pain’ means. It means that I leave you in anguish, in humiliation, in freakish misery until you can stand it no more; so there you have it, pig, there you know, you miserable vomitous mass, and I say this now, and live or die, it’s up to you: Drop your sword!”
The sword crashed to the floor.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride
“The Prince found Buttercup waiting unhappily outside his chamber doors.
It’s my letter,’ she began. ‘I cannot make it right.’
Come in, come in,’ the Prince said gently. ‘Maybe we can help you.’ She sat down in the same chair as before. ‘All right, I’ll close my eyes and listen; read to me.’
Westley, my passion, my sweet, my only my own. Come back, come back. I shall kill myself otherwise. Yours in torment, Buttercup.’ She looked at Humperdinck. ‘Well? Do you think I’m throwing myself at him?” William Goldman, The Princess Bride
“And when she at last came out, her eyes were dry. Her parents stared up from their silent breakfast at her. They both started to rise but she put a hand out, stopped them. ‘I can care for myself, please,’ and she set about getting some food. They watched her closely.
In point of fact, she had never looked as well. She had entered her room as just an impossibly lovely girl. The woman who emerged was a trifle thinner, a great deal wiser, and an ocean sadder. This one understood the nature of pain, and beneath the glory of her features, there was character, and a sure knowledge of suffering.
She was eighteen. She was the most beautiful woman in a hundred years. She didn’t seem to care.
‘You’re all right?’ her mother asked.
Buttercup sipped her cocoa. ‘Fine,’ she said.
‘You’re sure?’ her father wondered.
‘Yes,’ Buttercup replied. There was a very long pause. ‘But I must never love again.’
She never did.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride
“Death cannot stop true love. All it can do is delay it for a while.” William Goldman , The Princess Bride
“Look. (Grown-ups skip this paragraph) I’m not about to tell you this book has a tragic ending. I already said in the very first line how it was my favorite in all the world. But there’s a lot of bad stuff coming. ” William Goldman, The Princess Bride
“I must court her now,’ said the Prince. ‘Leave us alone for a minute.’ He rode the white expertly down the hill.
Buttercup had never seen such a giant beast. Or such a rider.
‘I am your Prince and you will marry me,’ Humperdinck said.
Buttercup whispered, ‘I am your servant and I refuse.’
‘I am your Prince and you cannot refuse.’
‘I am your loyal servant and I just did.’
‘Refusal means death.’
‘Kill me then.’
‘I am your Prince and I’m not that bad – how could you rather be dead than married to me?’
‘Because,’ Buttercup said, ‘marriage involves love, and that is not a pastime at which I excel. I tried once, and it went badly, and I am sworn never to love another.’
‘Love?’ said Prince Humperdinck. ‘Who mentioned love? Not me, I can tell you. Look: there must always be a male heir to the throne of Florin. That’s me. Once my father dies, there won’t be an heir, just a king. That’s me again. When that happens, I’ll marry and have children until there is a son. So you can either marry me and be the richest and most powerful woman in a thousand miles and give turkeys away at Christmas and provide me a son, or you can die in terrible pain in the very near future. Make up your own mind.’
‘I’ll never love you.’
‘I wouldn’t want it if I had it.’
‘Then by all means let us marry.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride
“Existence was really very simple when you did what you were told.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride , Princess Bride Quotes
“I have stayed these years in my hovel because of you. I have taught myself languages because of you. I have made my body strong because I thought you might be pleased by a strong body. I have lived my life with only the prayer that some sudden dawn you might glance in my direction. I have not known a moment in years when the sight of you did not send my heart careening against my rib cage. I have not known a night when your visage did not accompany me to sleep. There has not been a morning when you did not flutter behind my waking eyelids.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride
“See?” Fezzik pointed then. Far down, at the very bottom of the mountain path, the man in black could be seen running. “Inigo is beaten.”
Inconceivable!” exploded the Sicilian.
Fezzik never dared disagree with the hunchback. “I’m so stupid,” Fezzik nodded. “Inigo has not lost to the man in black, he has defeated him. And to prove it he has put on all the man in black’s clothes and masks and hoods and boots and gained eighty pounds.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride
“There’s a shortage of perfect breasts in this world. It would be a pity to damage yours.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride
“You could concentrate much more deeply when you were alone with agony.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride
“Inigo Montoya: He’s right on top of us. I wonder if he is using the same wind we are using.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride , Princess Bride Quotes
“I don’t like killing a girl,” the Spaniard said.
“God does it all the time; if it doesn’t bother Him, don’t let it worry you.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride
“And what have I done?”
What? WHAT?…You’ve stolen them.”
With that, Cornelia fled, but Buttercup understood; she knew who “them” was.
The beef-witted featherbrained rattledskulled clodpated dim-domed noodle-noggined sapheaded lunk-knobbed BOYS.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride
“I say you are a coward and you are; I think you hunt only to reassure yourself that you are not what you are: the weakest thing to ever walk the Earth. He will come for me and then we will be gone, and you will be helpless for all your hunting, because Westley and I are joined by the bond of love and you cannot track that, not with a thousand bloodhounds, and you cannot break it, not with a thousand swords.” William Goldman, The Princess Bride , Princess Bride Quotes

Can’t Hurt Me
“Can’t Hurt Me: Master Your Mind and Defy the Odds,” is written by David Goggins. The book tells of his life story, from being a bullied child to becoming one of the most elite endurance athletes in history. It also details how Goggins turned his Adversity into Advantage, using it as fuel for success rather than allowing it to defeat him.
Goggins himself is an amazing example of what is possible when we refuse to give up on ourselves no matter how hard things seem at first glance. He has faced more challenges than many people will ever experience in their entire lives and has still come out on top each time, proving that there are no limits to what we can achieve if we put our minds to it.
Echoing this sentiment throughout “Can’t Hurt Me; Master Your Mind and Defy the Odds,” Goggins highlights just how important mindset really is when it comes down to accomplishing anything great in life – whether that be becoming proficient in a skill or simply enduring through seemingly insurmountable hardships unscathed.
Here are Top Ten Quick Lessons from the Book
- Develop a strong mindset.
- Face your fears and doubts head-on.
- Be persistent and patient in your pursuits.
- Cultivate resilience by mastering self-discipline and bouncing back from setbacks
- Practice unconditional self-acceptance
- Take care of yourself both physically and emotionally
- Find mentors, role models, or teachers to help you grow
- Serve others wholeheartedly as it will allow you to better serve yourself too
- Draw inspiration from personal tragedy or misfortune
- Use adversity as an opportunity for growth

It doesn’t always go your way
Life won’t always go your way, so if you start thinking that it will, you’ll be disappointed and less effective Instead of focusing on what you think you deserve, figure out what u want and be willing to pay the dues required to get it
The 40% rule
When your mind is telling you that you’re done, completely exhausted and not able to go any further, you’re only at about 40% of your potential Keep fighting when you feel like you’re done, and that’s when you unlock the remaining 60% of your potential
No one is going to help you
Don’t wait for someone else to help you. If it’s your dream, it’s on YOU. If you wait, you’ll be waiting until you’re on your deathbed if you don’t take action.
Callous your mind
When you’re ready to quit, stay the course. See how far you can go. This will help you when things get tough. You’ll learn to work hard even when you don’t want to. That will pay off on your path.
progress is motivating

Great Lessons from the book “Think and Grow Rich”
Think and Grow Rich is a book by Napoleon Hill that was first published in 1937. The book focuses on the principles of success, and it contains 13 steps that are designed to help people achieve financial independence. Hill interviewed over 500 successful businessmen and women during the course of writing the book, and he compiled their insights into what makes them successful.
Think and Grow Rich is a timeless classic that teaches you how to achieve financial success through your own thoughts and actions. The author spent 20 years interviewing some of the most successful people in America at the time (Andrew Carnegie, Henry Ford, etc.). The concepts and advice found in this book are just as relevant today as they were 100 years ago.
The main idea behind Think and Grow Rich is that if you want to be rich, you need to think like a rich person thinks. You need to develop a strong belief system that focuses on getting what you want out of life rather than settling for what’s available. Once you have this mindset firmly planted in your mind, then it’s up to you take action towards achieving your goals. Hill provides plenty of helpful tips on how to do this throughout the course of the book.
Overall I thought Think and GrowRich was an excellent read! It contains tons of valuable information on becoming prosperous both financially and mentally/emotionally speaking. If applied correctly, its teachings can definitely change your life for the better!
The major lessons from the book Think and Grow Rich.
1. The key to success is having a clear goal and being willing to do whatever it takes to achieve it.
2. You must take action in order to create wealth and achieve any level of success.
3. Persistence and determination are essential traits for anyone seeking riches.
4. Visualize what you want, believe that you can have it, and then take massive action to make it happen
“Capitalistic society guarantees every person the opportunity to provide service and to collect riches in proportion to the value of the service”
“There are plenty examples of very wealthy (and fulfilled) people that had a goal in mind and stuck to it until they succeeded. Having a clear idea of what you want will help you persevere until you achieve it.”
“The first step to any sort of achievement must be conquering your own mind. You must master your fears, doubts, negativity and procrastination if you intend to accumulate any sort of riches or success.”
Surround yourself with a group of people that share your vision and will push you toward your goal. This Master Mind group needs to be in harmony with you and must have a different skill set that complements yours.
“Master your thoughts; if you feed your subconscious mind negative thoughts and poor thoughts, negativity and poverty will become a part of your reality. Whatever you want to achieve in life, you must learn how to think toward that goal.”
If you want to affect your subconscious, you need to mix your thoughts with emotions. You can’t say, “I am going to become a surgeon” and hope that you will. You need to actually focus and mix emotions as you say it, then you will convince yourself that you will make it.”
“Be specific when applying for a job. Instead of applying for any job, make sure you apply for a specific role, being as precise as possible. You should say why it is beneficial for the company to hire you and not somebody else.”
“Most successful people have the habit of reaching decisions promptly and of changing those decisions slowly. That way, once they have made a decision, they will not be influenced by people outside their Master Mind group.”
“We will all face failure, but only those willing to stand up and fight again will be able to achieve success.”
“Understand what kind of people are surrounding you. Some people’s happiness is based upon comparing themselves to others, so if you do well, they will feel bad. These people will always have comments to make and will send you negative thoughts.”

8 Powerful Lessons from the book “The Art of Thinking Clearly”
Rolf Dobelli’s book, “The Art of Thinking Clearly” is a great read for anyone looking to improve their thinking and decision-making skills. The book is broken down into three sections: Perception, Judgment and Decision Making. Each section covers different aspects of the thought process that we use on a daily basis but often take for granted.
Dobelli starts the book by discussing how our perceptions can be skewed based on our personal biases or preconceived notions. He uses several real world examples such as the 2008 financial crisis, which was caused in part by people making poor judgments about complex situations they didn’t understand fully.
Furthermore, he emphasizes the importance of being aware of your own cognitive biases and assumptions when trying to make informed decisions.
One way to do this, he argues, is through critical thinking exercises such as brainstorming or asking questions such as “How could I be wrong?” This not only helps you assess information more objectively but can also help prevent you from making costly mistakes in the future.
In the second section of his book, Dobelli delves deeper into judgmental processes – things like estimations and ranking items according to certain criteria (e..g price vs quality).
Some lessons that can be learned from The Art of Thinking Clearly are to think rationally and not let emotions get in the way, always use logic when making decisions, don’t over-analyze things and make sure you have all the information needed before coming to a conclusion. These lessons can help people become better thinkers and decision makers.
The fear of losing something motivates people more than the prospect of gaining something of equal value
Calamity of Conformity
If you ever find yourself in a tight unanimous group, you must speak your mind, even if your team does not like it, and even if it means risking expulsion from the warm nest.
Confirmation bias is the mother of all misconceptions.
It is a tendency to interpret new information so that it becomes compatible with our existing theories.
Never underestimate the hard work and lower probability of success,
just because we are shown more successful people than many more actual failures.
When it comes to compounding, don’t trust your intuition – you have no idea how powerful it is.
Money comes wrapped in emotions.
Money won incidentally, as against earned through hard work, is more likely to be spent irrationally – though it sounds illogical because the money is the same.
News is to mind, what sugar is to body.
It is appetizing, easy to digest – and highly destructive in the long run. Try and avoid it as much as you can.
It is not what you say, but how you say, that’s important.
99% Fat Free product seems more healthy than a product with 1% Fat.

The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People | To be successful
Stephen Covey’s “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People” is an enlightening read that outlines seven crucial habits for living a successful and productive life.
Be Proactive sets the tone, stressing the importance of taking responsibility for one’s own actions rather than placing blame on others or external circumstances. From there, Covey delves into topics such as goal setting, priority management, communication skills and networking.
What makes this book so exceptional is its focus on personal growth – it does not shy away from digging deep to address areas where we may be faltering in our lives. The exercises at the end of each chapter are especially helpful in putting theory into practice and aiding readers in making lasting change.
It would have been nice if more emphasis was placed on action steps/plans since some readers (myself included) tend to gloss over these sections; however, this minor flaw can easily be overlooked given everything else in “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People” has going for it.
All things considered, I absolutely recommend this book to anyone interested in self-improvement or wanting to live a more fulfilling life.
List the best lessons from the book “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People”.
1. Be proactive
2. Begin with the end in mind
3. Put first things first
4. Think win-win
5. Seek to understand, then be understood
7. Sharpen the saw
Instead of blaming the world for your problems, you can be a more effective person by focusing on the things that you can actually do something about.
Begin With The End In Mind
If you visualize an action and its desired consequences first, the more likely you are to have success. There’s no point in getting lots of tasks done in a short amount of time, if the end outcome isn’t what you really want.
Put First Things First
This habit is all about prioritization. You need to figure out the things that are most important and always put them first.
That relationships can be compared to “emotional banks accounts”. A payment could be finding a win-win solution, or listening to someone properly. A withdrawal could be fighting for a win-lose outcome or only pretending to listen.
Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood
You need to emphatically listen to others and get inside their frame of reference to understand them intellectually and emotionally. Only then will people start to really trust your opinions and advice.
1+1 can actually equal 3 or more if you work together. It’s always better than fighting each other and trying to go it alone. For this you need to understand, trust and respect each other.
Sharpen The Saw If You Want to Keep Sawing
You need to take care of yourself. stay physically fit, maintain your emotional wellbeing by having good relationships with others. Give yourself time to recharge and in the long run you’ll be a far more effective person.
