“See things as you would have them be, instead of as they are.

The first principle of success is desire — knowing what you want.
Desire is the planting of your seed.”

~ Robert Collier, Author

They’re Already Yours

Don’t fret and worry about them. Don’t think about your lack of them.
Think of them as yours, as belonging to you, as already in your possession.”
~ Robert Collier,

… there are few who decide to do something about them now.
Not tomorrow. Not next week. But today.
The true entrepreneur is a doer, not a dreamer (only).”

asked me a question sometime ago, he said,
‘When is the last time you saw a Hispanic panhandler?’
I think it’s a great question.
I’ll tell you, in my life
I’ve never once have seen a Hispanic panhandler,
because in our community,
it would be viewed as shameful
to be out on the street begging..”
~ Ted Cruz, Politician
