15 Quotes by Dr Laura Schlessinger

For readers unfamiliar with her work, Dr Laura Schlessinger is an American talk radio host, commentator and author.

Her radio show consists mainly of her responses to callers’ requests for personal advice.

Her presentation style is a tough love, no nonsense approach, which means to some people she can be seen as controversial.

Certainly she’s a social conservative and even her own website says that her show preaches, teaches and nags about morals, values and ethics.

Nevertheless she has a loyal following and many people around the world listen to her via podcasts.

Here are 15 quotes by Dr Laura Schlessinger which I think reflect her approach.

You can judge for yourself whether it’s an approach that would appeal to you dear reader. However I think these quotes are worth a few minutes of your time.

Paulo Coelho is also known as a keen user of digital media. He posts up to three times a week on his blog and he has millions of fans on both Facebook and Twitter.

In 2014, he also uploaded around 80,000 documents-manuscripts, diaries, photos, reader letters, press clippings and created a virtual Paulo Coelho Foundation, along with the physical foundation which is based in Geneva.

15 Quotes by Dr Joy Browne

For anyone unfamiliar with her work, the late Dr Joy Browne was an American psychologist and talk show host who specialized in on-air advice counselling.

She hosted a nationally syndicated call-in radio talk show for several decades, providing advice to callers and words of wisdom to her listeners.

Her shows achieved worldwide reach via podcasts.

She had a legion of loyal fans who were devastated when sadly she passed away suddenly in August 2016.

Here are 15 quotes by Dr Joy Browne to illustrate why I believe she was an inspiration.

Quotes by Dr Joy Browne:

  1. Stupid and cheerful beats smart but angry. ~Dr Joy Browne
  2. Friendship is a relationship between equals. ~Dr Joy Browne
  3. You can only help someone who wants to be helped. ~Dr Joy Browne
  4. If you’re going to have to deal with it sooner or later then sooner is better than later. ~Dr Joy Browne
  5. Appearing to be reasonable is usually more important than being reasonable. ~Dr Joy Browne
  6. Being in a relationship that makes you unhappy is a bad idea. ~Dr Joy Browne
  7. You don’t need a reason to divorce someone you can’t stand. ~Dr Joy Browne
  8. The person who cares least about the relationship controls it. ~Dr Joy Browne
  9. Our feelings are not our responsibility but our behaviour is. ~Dr Joy Browne
  10. If we give up the notion that everybody’s life is perfect but ours, we would be a lot happier. Nobody’s life is perfect. ~Dr Joy Browne
  11. The role of parents is not to do for our children but to teach our children to do for themselves. ~Dr Joy Browne
  12. Good parenting helps our kids to walk away from us and not to depend on us. ~Dr Joy Browne
  13. Kids have to make their own mistakes because anything we tell them, even if it’s right isn’t as valuable as what they learn from doing something, even if it’s wrong. ~Dr Joy Browne
  14. If someone is being difficult, what you do is walk away because either they need some time to sort it out, and you can’t do it for them, or they don’t. If they don’t, well you might as well leave with your dignity intact. You can’t make someone love you, you really can’t. ~Dr Joy Browne
  15. The only behaviour we can ever control in this life, as much as we can control anything, is our own. Not anyone else’s. ~Dr Joy Browne

I hope you were inspired by at least some of these quotes dear reader and perhaps you’d like to explore some of her work further. An example of her on-air counselling is included here as an embedded YouTube video. This is well worth your time.

15 Quotes by Ellen DeGeneres

Quotes by Ellen DegeneresToday I offer you 15 quotes by Ellen DeGeneres.

Well-known to millions worldwide, Ellen DeGeneres is a popular American comedian, television host, actress, writer and producer.

She starred in the popular sitcom Ellen from 1994 to 1998 and has hosted her syndicated TV talk show, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, since 2003.

She’s likeable and smart and she’s enjoyed a successful media career, so it’s well worth reflecting on her observations in the many quotes with which she has been credited over the years.

I’m always interested in what successful people have to say and you should be too. If they’ve been there and done it then we can learn from them.

So here are today’s quotes.

Quotes by Ellen DeGeneres:

  1. I would love for the world to be happier. ~Ellen DeGeneres
  2. Sometimes you can’t see yourself clearly until you see yourself through the eyes of others. ~Ellen DeGeneres
  3. It’s our challenges and obstacles that give us layers of depth and make us interesting. Are they fun when they happen? No but they’re what make us unique. ~Ellen DeGeneres
  4. I say always follow your passion, no matter what, because even if it’s not the same financial success, it’ll lead you to the money that’ll make you the happiest. ~Ellen DeGeneres
  5. A lot of money with the wrong career is not going to make you happy. If you have money without happiness, it doesn’t mean anything. It’s all about happiness. ~Ellen DeGeneres
  6. If you want to get rid of stuff, you can always do a good spring-cleaning. Or you can do what I do. Move. ~Ellen DeGeneres
  7. I used to beat myself up about weight and working out, and no matter what I did I never felt good about myself. I decided to accept myself and know that I am good. ~Ellen DeGeneres
  8. People love gossip. It’s the biggest thing that keeps the entertainment industry going. ~Ellen DeGeneres
  9. Find out who you are and be that person. That’s what your soul was put on this Earth to be. Find that truth, live that truth and everything else will come. ~Ellen DeGeneres
  10. We need more kindness, more compassion, more joy, more laughter. I definitely want to contribute to that. ~Ellen DeGeneres
  11. Here are the values that I stand for: honesty, equality, kindness, compassion, treating people the way you want to be treated and helping those in need. To me, those are traditional values. ~Ellen DeGeneres
  12. I learned compassion from being discriminated against. Everything bad that’s ever happened to me has taught me compassion. ~Ellen DeGeneres
  13. We focus so much on our differences, and that is creating, I think, a lot of chaos and negativity and bullying in the world. And I think if everybody focused on what we all have in common – which is – we all want to be happy. ~Ellen DeGeneres
  14. The world is full of a lot of fear and a lot of negativity, and a lot of judgment. I just think people need to start shifting into joy and happiness. As corny as it sounds, we need to make a shift. ~Ellen DeGeneres
  15. Most comedy is based on getting a laugh at somebody else’s expense. And I find that that’s just a form of bullying in a major way. So I want to be an example that you can be funny and be kind, and make people laugh without hurting somebody else’s feelings. ~Ellen DeGeneres

The way to discover your true potential

Discover your true potentialWhat’s the way to discover your true potential? That’s an interesting question.

Have you ever considered what your true potential might be dear reader?

Have you ever thought you might have some hidden depths about which even you cannot be sure?

Certainly there are many people who underestimate their ability or they simply allow negative thinking to stop them exploring all that they could be.

It’s easy for us to think that really we don’t have much to offer in terms of ability.

We all worry about being ‘found out’ at times. We all experience self-doubt. That’s natural but we must keep any self-doubt under control.

Negative thinking is like the weeds in your garden. If you’re not careful the weeds take over and your garden suffers. Well your mind is just like a garden.

And like a garden, you must tend it well.

Nourish your mind with learning. Be inspired by books, film, song, and inspirational videos and audio programs by the great thinkers of our time. Encourage healthy thoughts and an even healthier outlook.

Let me remind you dear reader, you really do have enormous potential.

Human beings have unlimited capacity to develop as many skills as necessary.

Unfortunately far too many people go through life with their potential untapped. And that’s really sad, wouldn’t you agree?

The world needs all the skills and ideas it can get.  You have the capacity for ideas in abundance. The world needs your full potential.

Do you need a little help to discover your full potential? If so, don’t worry. You’re not alone. There are plenty of people just like you but help is at hand.

Discover your true potential:

The late, great Jim Rohn was one of the greatest philosophical thinkers of our time. Certainly when it comes to personal development. I’ve read all his books, watched his videos and listened to his audio programs. And I still do frequently. I find his work truly inspirational.

In the following video Jim Rohn offers some words of wisdom on just how you can go about discovering you true potential in life.

This video is truly inspiring and it is well worth a few minutes of your time. In fact anything by Jim Rohn is well worth your time in my opinion.

I think Jim Rohn was one of the best motivational speakers I’ve ever heard. He has a homespun, folksy philosophy but don’t be fooled. His messages are simple but powerful. So listen and learn.

Jim Rohn’s simple messages resonate with people as much today as they did when he made his speeches originally.

If you only have time to listen to one motivational speaker then Jim Rohn is undoubtedly the one to whom I always turn and I recommend you do too.

Recommendations for your personal library:

As I said earlier, Jim Rohn is one of the best motivational speakers I’ve ever heard and he’s been a big influence on me, that’s for sure.

He’s produced many books, videos and audio programs over the years and all of them would add real value to your own personal library.

Two I can strongly recommend you add to your personal reference library are:-

Book: Seven Strategies for Wealth & Happiness by Jim Rohn

Audio Program: The Art of Exceptional Living by Jim Rohn

I purchased both of these a couple of years ago and I still use them constantly as sources of inspiration and motivation.

The audio program is particularly useful as I listen to it whilst driving. This means I can use my travel time profitably. Why listen to the radio when you could be listening and learning whilst you drive?

Purchasing these items represents money well spent for me and I’ve found them enormously useful and I strongly recommend them to you.

Click on the links and check them out.

Even if you don’t buy them they’re certainly worth considering. Go on check them out right now whilst it’s fresh in your mind.

Should you make a purchase, you will not regret buying them, of that I’m very confident.

How is success achieved? Could this be the secret?

How is success achievedHow is success achieved? Certainly many desire it but few really achieve it. Why is that do you think dear reader?

Could it be all about your mindset? Can your thinking have an impact on whether you succeed or not?

Well in the embedded video, Carrie Green suggests that your mindset really does matter.

Programming your mind for success:

This is an inspirational talk on the subject of success from Ms Carrie Green given at TEDxManchester.

Her underlying message is that success is never achieved by accident.

Success is in fact achieved by knowing what you want, knowing why you want it and then programming your mind to drive you towards your goal.

I’d not heard Carrie Green speak before I stumbled on this video but I must say I’m very impressed.

If you can spare a few minutes then this video is well worth a little piece of your time. I’m confident that you won’t be disappointed. Recommended.

15 Quotes by Larry David

How to improve your life quality and enjoy what you don’t have now

How to improve your life qualityHow to improve your life quality? That’s a question we all ask ourselves when life does not quite meet our expectations.

Embarrassed by circumstances:

Have you ever been embarrassed by your limited circumstances?

All your friends were going on a night out perhaps but you couldn’t join them because you simply didn’t have the money, perhaps?

You really wanted to join them of course but wealth and financial freedom were nothing but a distant dream for you then.

Maybe you’ve not had that particular experience but something similar, possibly? The actual situation for you may have been different but your sense of embarrassment will not have been any less painful and hard to bear I’m sure.

In one of his audio programs, Jim Rohn tells a story about an event that drove him to take a very close look at his life.

Apparently a Girl Scout called at Jim’s house one day selling Girl Scout Cookies as part of an annual fund raiser. In exchange for the cookies all she asked for was just two dollars.

This was many years ago of course but even then this was not a huge sum of money.

However Jim’s problem at the time was that he didn’t even have two dollars to spare, so he was reduced to lying to the poor girl. At this point wealth was something Jim had yet to encounter.

Money does matter:

Now some people will tell you that money doesn’t matter but it does. In our world today you can no more live without money than you can live without oxygen.

Exactly how much money you need depends on your preferred lifestyle of course. If you don’t want much out of life then you’ll get by on very little money.

However most of us do want more out of life hence having at least a degree of wealth does matter.

Wealth and financial freedom:

Put simply, wealth means financial freedom.

Financial freedom in turn means you being able to do what you want whenever you want and not feeling constrained by your circumstances.

A worthy aim therefore is to decide what you want out of life and then start working towards building your own wealth.

It all starts with change:

Have you ever thought to yourself, I don’t want to live like this anymore?

Perhaps you said to yourself, I want more out of life?

You want more but the problem is you have no idea how to change your circumstances, right? It you’re in need of a little help then don’t worry dear reader, you’re not alone.

However one thing you must accept, unless you change nothing will change.

You must increase your value:

Perhaps you look at your salary each month and think how can I start building wealth when this is all the company pays?

If that’s how you think then you’ll need to change your philosophy or the way you look at things.

The salary you get maybe all the company pays you but it’s for the value of the contribution you make. There will be other people who are paid a lot more than you. They’re paid more than you quite simply because they’re considered to be more valuable than you.

I’m not suggesting that you’re not valuable. You are; as a father, a mother, a brother, a sister, a friend or even a colleague.

However my point reflects your economic value to your employer.

It’s a fact that if you’re in a low skilled job where there’s an over-supply of potential replacements for your services then you won’t earn much. That’s simply the economics of supply and demand.

However just because you’re not more valuable now doesn’t mean you couldn’t become more valuable.

You can increase your skills with a little effort on your part and you can become more valuable. Become more valuable and your income will rise.

So whilst your circumstances may be limited right now they don’t have to remain that way.

You can work on yourself; improve yourself. It’s all about self-improvement and personal development.

Success can be yours:

Success doesn’t just happen to people. No one just gets lucky.

If you asked the CEO of say Microsoft how he got to where he is, his response is unlikely to be, “Well I just showed up for work each day and they just kept promoting me.

No, he’ll have worked very hard to get to his lofty position in life. You don’t get anywhere without hard work.

However you attract success by the person you become and you can become more than you are now.

Jim Rohn suggests that profits are better than wages and he has a point.

Every rags-to-riches story I’ve ever heard always involves someone’s own business. They started their own business, worked very hard and one day they became very rich.

Build a business:

Now you’re probably thinking, I don’t have the money to start my own business and I can’t afford to give up my job on a whim.

That’s all true I’m sure but some people keep their job initially and start their own business as a part-time enterprise.

Jim Rohn himself built his success that way.

Jim began life in modest circumstances but he went on to become a millionaire and one of the most influential thinkers of our time. And in case you’re wondering, no he didn’t go to university.

It can be done; people do and you can too.

Just make up your mind to start working on yourself.

Increase your value and look for opportunities to solve problems for people. Solving problems is the basis of business. Every product should solve a problem for consumers.

The psychology of wealth:

There’s a psychology linked to the building wealth and you would be wise to understand it.

In the embedded video included here, Jim Rohn explains the psychology of wealth and provides a lot of sensible advice.

Jim was a successful man and it’s always worth listening to people who’ve achieved success. They know what they’re talking about because they’ve been there and done it.

He offers simple messages that are thought-provoking and powerful.

This video is well worth your time and I recommend it to you. Watch it now whilst you have the chance.

Recommendations for your personal library:

Personally, I think Jim Rohn is one of the best motivational speakers I’ve ever heard and he’s been a big influence on me, that’s for sure.

He’s produced many books, videos and audio programs over the years and all of them would add real value to your own personal library.

Two I can strongly recommend you add to your personal reference library are:-

Book: Seven Strategies for Wealth & Happiness by Jim Rohn

Audio Program: The Art of Exceptional Living by Jim Rohn

I purchased both of these some time ago and I still use them constantly as sources of inspiration and motivation.

The audio program is particularly useful as I listen to it whilst driving. This means I can use my travel time profitably. Why listen to the radio when you could be listening and learning whilst you drive?

Purchasing these items represents money well spent for me and I’ve found them enormously useful and I strongly recommend them to you.

Click on the links and check them out.

Even if you don’t buy them they’re certainly worth considering. Go on check them out right now whilst it’s fresh in your mind.

Should you make a purchase, you will not regret buying them, of that I’m very confident.
