The big thing is that you know what you want.Earl Nightingale
All you have to do is know where you’re going. The answers will come to you of their own accord.Earl Nightingale
Everything begins with an idea.Earl Nightingale
Ideas are elusive, slippery things. Best to keep a pad of paper and a pencil at your bedside, so you can stab them during the night before they get away.Earl Nightingale
You can measure opportunity with the same yardstick that measures the risk involved. They go together.Earl Nightingale
A great attitude does much more than turn on the lights in our worlds; it seems to magically connect us to all sorts of serendipitous opportunities that were somehow absent before the change.Earl Nightingale
We can let circumstances rule us, or we can take charge and rule our lives from within.Earl Nightingale
Your problem is to bridge the gap which exists between where you are now and the goal you intend to reach.Earl Nightingale
Picture yourself in your minds eye as having already achieved this goal. See yourself doing the things you’ll be doing when you’ve reached your goal.Earl Nightingale
The mind moves in the direction of our currently dominant thoughts.Earl Nightingale
Any person who contributes to prosperity must prosper in turn.Earl Nightingale
Success is the progressive realization of a worthy goal or ideal.Earl Nightingale
Whenever we’re afraid, it’s because we don’t know enough. If we understood enough, we would never be afraid.Earl Nightingale
You are, at this moment, standing, right in the middle of your own “acres of diamonds.”Earl Nightingale

Everything in the world we want to do or get done, we must do with and through people.Earl Nightingale
The biggest mistake that you can make is to believe that you are working for somebody else. Job security is gone. The driving force of a career must come from the individual. Remember: Jobs are owned by the company, you own your career!Earl Nightingale
We are at our very best, and we are happiest, when we are fully engaged in work we enjoy on the journey toward the goal we’ve established for ourselves. It gives meaning to our time off and comfort to our sleep. It makes everything else in life so wonderful, so worthwhile.Earl Nightingale
Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don’t wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future. Think how really precious is the time you have to spend, whether it’s at work or with your family. Every minute should be enjoyed and savored.Earl Nightingale
Whatever we plant in our subconscious mind and nourish with repetition and emotion will one day become a reality.Earl Nightingale
Everything that’s really worthwhile in life comes to us.Earl Nightingale
Our environment, the world in which we live and work, is a mirror of our attitudes and expectations.Earl Nightingale
People are where they are because that is exactly where they really want to be – whether they will admit that or not.Earl Nightingale
Your world is a living expression of how you are using and have used your mind.Earl Nightingale

We will receive not what we idly wish for but what we justly earn. Our rewards will always be in exact proportion to our service.Earl Nightingale
What’s going on in the inside shows on the outside.Earl Nightingale
Don’t let the fear of the time it will take to accomplish something stand in the way of your doing it. The time will pass anyway; we might just as well put that passing time to the best possible use.Earl Nightingale
Get into a line that you will find to be a deep personal interest, something you really enjoy spending twelve to fifteen hours a day working at, and the rest of the time thinking about.Earl Nightingale
Wherever there is danger, there lurks opportunity; whenever there is opportunity, there lurks danger. The two are inseparable. They go together.Earl Nightingale
