[Quote No.30204] Need Area: Mind > Learn
"...the foundational principle of all other success principles is having an accurate perception of reality. Which means that great achievements are virtually impossible if one's perception of reality is perpetually faulty. [It is the right, in fact the obligation, of each individual to be sceptical and therefore critically assess everything before believing or acting on it.]... In the words of Buddha, 'Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense.' If he were alive today, my guess is that Buddha would add the words 'especially when it comes to government.'... politicians and their talking heads in the media." - Robert Ringer

[Quote No.30425] Need Area: Mind > Learn
"The Discipline of Reading: Some things in life are optional, and some things in life are mandatory. Taking your next vacation to the Caribbean is optional. Building a personal library and becoming an avid reader is mandatory. It is no longer something you can choose to do. It is absolutely essential and indispensable for your success. Some years ago, a young man came to me and asked for advice. Though he had managed to graduate from high school, he could barely read. Meanwhile, he was working at a dead-end job at minimum wage, and he had been there for two years. He was living in a small apartment on a limited budget. His friends from high school were in pretty much the same predicament. They all were working at low-level, low-skill jobs with no future. He said he wanted to be successful at something that didn't require reading. I told him that this was not a matter of choice. I told him that he had to learn to read, and read well. The only jobs that wouldn't require him to read were the kinds of jobs he and his friends were already doing. And even those jobs soon would be done by younger, more eager people with better educations. Much to his credit, he thought about what I said, and finally accepted the fact that he had to become a good reader. He began taking community-college courses in remedial reading. Eventually, he applied for entrance to a technical institute, and he got in by the skin of his teeth. Because of his poor high-school education, it took him almost three years to complete a two-year program in biomedical engineering. He stuck in there and worked hard, and finally got the degree. A small company hired him as a sales representative, to call on hospitals and clinics in a rural territory. It wasn't much, but he took it and ran with it. He continued to read, studying sales and communications on his own. He started that sales job at $22,000 per year, and within two years he was up to $30,000. In his third year, he was hired away by a rival company and paid $40,000 per year. Two years later, an international company heard about his success in the marketplace and hired him at more than $50,000 per year, with a company car, an expense account, and substantial benefits. In seven years, he went from being a semiliterate, minimum-wage worker to a highly paid biomedical technical representative. And he was back in the big city with a townhouse, a new car, a wife, children, and a great life. The interesting thing is that as he went around trying to renew his old friendships, he found that most of the people he had graduated with were still working at dead-end jobs. Seven years seems like a long time, but it passes in a flash when you are busy doing something you enjoy and getting continually better at it. Many people think it's up to their company to educate them if they need additional training. Well, if your company provides training, you should take advantage of every minute of it. But if it doesn't, and most companies don't, you are still solely responsible for maintaining and increasing your value through continuous reading. There is no other way. Let me share with you some ideas that helped me go from high-school dropout and dishwasher, working in the kitchen of a small hotel, to chief operating officer of a $265 million company. These practices have been shared by most of the successful men and women in America. Their cumulative effect on the quality of your life can be amazing. 1. If you are not a good reader, make the decision, right now, that you are going to go any distance, pay any price, overcome any obstacle, and spend whatever amount of money it takes to become an excellent reader. If you do not know how to read particularly well, stop everything else that you are doing outside of your work and dedicate yourself to reading. Spend every spare minute reading as if your future depends on it. Because it does. It may take a week, a month, or a year to become a better reader. It may take even longer. But that doesn't matter. Becoming an excellent reader will kick open doors of opportunity that you cannot now imagine. 2. If you are already a good reader, or when you become a good reader, learn to speed-read. The Evelyn Wood Reading Dynamics program is probably the best that has ever been developed. Also, many communities throughout the country offer speed-reading classes. Speed-reading is like touch-typing. In typing, you can use the hunt-and-peck method all your life, or you can learn how to do it right and increase your speed to 50 or 60 words per minute. In reading, you can take your speed from 50 or 60 words per minute up to 300, 400, 500, or even 1,000 words per minute, with no loss of comprehension. Speed-reading is absolutely essential to the success of really ambitious men and women today. 3. Build a personal library. Although public libraries are extremely helpful for research, you should buy your own books. Which books should you buy? Use the Law of Relative Importance to make your decisions. Buy the books that are most important to your life at the moment. The key word here is 'relevant.' Adults learn best when what they are studying is extremely relevant to their needs, their work, their life, and their present situation. If you read material that is not relevant to you, you will find it difficult. You will not be drawn to the material, and you will forget most of it as you go along. But when you read material that is both relevant and applicable to your work, your mind sparkles with all kinds of ideas on how you can use this new information to be more effective. The prospect of learning new methods and techniques that you know will improve your life is both exciting and highly motivating. It's also a good idea to ask the most successful people in your field what books they would recommend. Then go straight to the bookstore and buy them. Every professional should have a library in his field - and professionalism is a state of mind. If you are in sales, for example, you should have a library of sales books. You should be reading at least one hour per day in sales, one book per week, 50 books per year. You should be a consistent, persistent student of your craft. You should know more about the field of selling than anybody else within 500 miles. You should set a goal to become so knowledgeable about sales that you would be able to give advanced classes in your profession within a few years. With this goal as your guiding star, you will find yourself learning and remembering far more than you would if you were just browsing through the material. Should you buy hardcover books or softcover books? I recommend that you purchase any book, hardcover or softcover, that can help you. Some books cost $20 to $30. The average person complains that he can't afford such a book. The superior person recognizes that the information contained in that book can save him a year or two of hard work. Remember, it may have taken the author of that book 10 to 20 years to learn his subject. It may have taken him two to three years to write the book, and one or two years to get it published. By paying a few dollars for that book, you probably are getting the results of 20 or 25 years of effort by one of the smartest people in your field. In one 22-year study of self-made millionaires, researchers found that a common characteristic of those special men and women who went from rags to riches was that they were absolutely fascinated by their work. They didn't think so much about making a lot of money. They were more concerned about becoming better and better at what they did. Their work absorbed them completely. In almost no time at all, because of their commitment to reading and self-development, they were paid more and more. And once they reached a high level of income, their fascination with their work still continued. Instead of drawing extra money from their businesses and spending it frivolously, they reinvested it in themselves and in their careers. As a result, they became more and more proficient and wealthier and wealthier. Then, one day, they opened their eyes, looked around, and found that they were worth more than $1 million. And the continuous learning, the nonstop reading, was the key reason." - Brian Tracy
Highly successful business consultant, trainer, speaker and author.

[Quote No.30587] Need Area: Mind > Learn
"How I Became an 'A' Student: Near the end of my senior year of high school, Mrs. Bigsley, the career counselor, called me into her office. 'I've been looking at your grades and your aptitude tests and your conduct reports,' she said, thumbing through a stack of papers. I waited expectantly. Mrs. Bigsley was the person in charge of getting students into good colleges and universities. 'Maybe she's seen the potential I have,' I thought. 'Maybe she is going to help me get into an Ivy League school.' She put the stack of paper down on her desk and looked up at me. 'In all my years of teaching, I have never seen such a complete waste of DNA,' she said. 'Your parents are college teachers, are they not?' I admitted they were. 'And your two elder siblings were 'A' students?' 'Yes, but ...' 'And they went to top universities on scholarship?' 'Yes, but ...' 'I've talked to Mrs. Crow, your homeroom teacher. And Mr. Dean and Dr. Mackel, too. They all say the same thing. You will never amount to anything that has anything to do with reading, writing, or math. Your grades support their opinion.' 'But ...' 'Your performance in high school indicates only one career choice as far as I can see: enlisting in the Army. I think you should talk to a recruiting officer. As soon as possible.' I tried once more to protest, but Mrs. Bigsley - and apparently Mrs. Crow and Dr. Mackel and Mr. Dean - had come to a fixed decision. I was a complete and utter failure as a student. It was the low point of my academic life. It was humiliating. I felt nearly defeated. But Mrs. Bigsley's low assessment of me made me mad. I stewed about it that night and woke up the next morning with a completely new frame of mind. I decided I would no longer be a screw-up. From that moment on, I was going to be a good student. I started immediately by enrolling at the local community college. (If you have a beating heart, they accepted you.) Then I planned my summer. When I wasn't working, I would spend every waking hour reading and preparing for the classes I'd be taking. Each day, I felt better about myself. I was learning what I should have learned in high school. Day by day, I was making progress. Still, I was afraid that when I started classes I might revert to my bad habits. To make that scenario less likely, I found a 'nerd' to share an apartment with and refused to sign up for any sports or pledge any fraternities. I also told my friends that I would be 'out of touch' for at least a year. I explained my goals to them and asked them to respect me by leaving me alone until the following summer. What I was doing, I realize now, was making a radical personality change. I was changing the way I thought about myself - not by thinking positive thoughts but by taking specific actions that made me feel like a good student. When college began in September, I sat in the front row of every class, something I'd never done in high school. I made it a point to always do at least 50 percent more than I was asked to do. If the assignment was to write a 500-word essay on religion, I'd write 750 words and include a glossary of impressive sources. If the assignment was to read King Lear by the following week, I'd read it twice. And then I'd go to the library and read critical essays about the play so I'd be aware of all the major interpretations. I raised my hand every time a question was asked. And I turned in extra work, even when it would get me no extra credit. In short, I turned myself into a full-blown hardworking, overachieving, ass-kissing 'A' level student ... and I made sure my instructors, and my fellow students, saw me that way. In the beginning, other students in my classes did as much work as I did. But as the weeks went by, many of them started slipping. Each time one of them fell behind, I was motivated to work even harder. And I was thrilled when I got those early test scores back. I had never before understood how good it could feel to get an A or B+. Those good feelings motivated me to push even harder. With each passing week, the distance between me and the other 'good' students widened. And by the time freshman year was over, I saw myself as a completely different person. I was no longer the funny screw-up I'd been in high school. I'd changed into the 'Teacher's Pet' who sat in the front and had the right answer to every question. Once my image of myself changed, my motivation became permanent. I was among the best two or three students in every class. I was going to keep that position, no matter how much work it took. I maintained an 'A' average for two years and easily got into City University - a tougher school - where I continued to perform as I had become used to performing. Two years later, I graduated magna cum laude. Two years after that, I graduated at the top of my class at the University of Michigan. And later, at Catholic University, I received honors on my doctorate work. To become the hardworking person you must become, here is what you should do: -1. Get up early, and give your day a jumpstart by doing something meaningful ... first thing. -2. Work as late as you have to. -3. Do at least 50 percent more than what is asked of you. -4. Volunteer for challenging assignments. -5. Educate yourself on the side. -6. Become better than anyone else at the essential skills you need to accomplish your goal. Becoming top dog takes a lot of extra time, so you'll have to make significant sacrifices. If you are like most people, your biggest distractions will be television, the Internet, friends, and family. Get rid of your TV. Limit your 'recreational' use of the Internet to one hour a day. And let your friends and family members know that you won't be able to spend much time with them in the foreseeable future. Work like mad until you've become number one in your class, job, or outside interest. When that happens - and it shouldn't take more than six months - you'll feel great about yourself. And once you experience that feeling, you'll never have to worry about motivation again. Well ... almost never. Everyone needs a motivational recharge once in a while. But after the first time, you'll understand exactly what you have to do to get yourself going again." - Michael Masterson
Highly successful entrepreneur and author.

[Quote No.30743] Need Area: Mind > Learn
"There are actually three classes of Latin academic honors in use for graduating students in the United States and around the world, and most universities use at least two of them. All universities use 'cum laude' graduate, which means 'with praise'. Some universities also add 'magna cum laude', which translates to 'with great praise'. The third honor is 'summa cum laude', for 'with highest praise', used for only the very best students. These distinctions are very helpful in an individual's career, especially when applying for work, and should be aimed for, even if not achieved, by every serious student." - Seymour@imagi-natives.com
