Quote from Norman Vincent Peale:
The how thinker gets problems solved effectively because he wastes no time with futile ifs but goes right to work on the creative how.
Every successful man or great genius has three particular qualities in common. The most conspicuous of these is that they all produce a prodigious amount of work. The second is that they never know fatigue. And the third is that their minds grow more brilliant as they grow older, instead of less brilliant. Great men’s lives begin at forty, where the mediocre man’s life ends. The genius remains an ever-flowing fountain of creative achievement until the very last breath he draws.
You want to be a hero? Learn to create certainty in the face of fear.
Problems are God’s resistance to create spiritual muscles.
We tend to get what we expect.
If you believe you are plenty, you will validate that belief and create plenty of abundance.
The way you create any outcome in your life is to hold the vision of your deepest desires. At the same time, though, you must honestly and accurately assess your current situation and how it relates to your greater vision. By doing this, you engage tension between what is and what can be. This tension is the primary creative force behind the manifestation of any outcome. It’s as natural and powerful as the force of gravity.
You create your opportunities by asking for them.
If you want to make an apple pie from scratch, you must first create the universe.
…in all the woods and forests, God did not create a single leaf the same as any other… People go against nature because they lack the courage to be different.
I was actually a fruitarian at that point in time. I ate only fruit. Now I'm a garbage can like everyone else. And we were about three months late in filing a fictitious business name so I threatened to call the company Apple Computer unless someone suggested a more interesting name by five o'clock that day. Hoping to stimulate creativity. And it stuck. And that's why we're called Apple.
I don't believe that people create their own visions. Rather, I believe that visions are actually God's way of communicating with us.
