How Can You Change

"Realizing your goal, resolution, or transformation is a journey. Change, like any meaningful endeavor, proceeds sequentially through steps. The journey begins with the contemplation stage of specifying realistic goals, getting ready, or getting psyched. The planning stage is all about prepping. How exactly will I do this thing? At some point you will jump from preparing and planning to perspiring, the work of implementing the new, desired behavior. Getting there is wonderful, but we need to keep you there, which entails persevering through slips and, finally, persisting over time."
- John C. Norcross, Changeology, p.21

"If you have made mistakes, even serious ones, there is always another chance for you. What we call failure is not the falling down, but the staying down."
- Mary Pickford

"Easy to say, hard to do."
- Takeguchi Shihan

"There is not great talent without great will power."
- Honore de Balzac

"Put your heart, mind, intellect and soul even to your smallest acts. This is the secret of success."
- Swami Sivananda
