Defeated Before You Do Anything

“Any fact facing us is not as important as our attitude toward it,
for that determines our success or failure. The way you think about a fact may defeat you before
you ever do anything about it. You are overcome by the fact because you think you are.”

~ Dr. Norman Vincent Peale,
Author & Minister

A Yardstick of Your Success

“Never lose sight of the fact that the most important yardstick of your success
will be how you treat other people –
your family, friends, and coworkers, and even strangers you meet along the way.”
