Excerpt From 500 Steve Pavlina Quotes – Compiled by Meghashyam and Krupa Chirravoori

This free excerpt of the 500 Steve Pavlina Quotes E-book is taken from the section on motivation.  The actual e-book which you can purchase from www.personal-development-is-fun.com (for less then $3.00) has more than 500 awesome quotes by Steve Pavlina.

What Makes These Quotes So Special?

The one fact that makes these 500+ quotes special is that they all speak the deepest truths in the simplest possible language. These quotes won’t talk in circles. And they won’t give you superficial bursts of motivation. They all talk about really making your life better. Really having a better career. Really having better relationships. Really figuring out why you’re here on earth. Really being more productive.

Each of these quotes is potent and powerful and we whole heartedly wish that they help YOU in making your life better than ever before!

Who Is Steve Pavlina?

Steve Pavlina is a man who is intensely passionate about personal growth. He writes regularly at stevepavlina.com (which gets 10 million visitors a month). He’s also written a book called Personal Development For Smart People.

The one fascinating fact about this man we respect is his intense passion for learning and self improvement. While many “self help gurus” may teach others how to live life but hide facts about their own personal life, Steve is open about his past (he was a kleptomaniac once), and his present situation (he talked about his divorce publicly). He also writes about his own challenges openly at stevepavlina.com.

We are thankful to Steve for writing all these wonderful words and also for un-copyrighting his work and therefore allowing us to publish his best quotes.

Quotes to Motivate…

Make a positive new decision and start taking action, and a newfound sense of optimism will enter your life within the hour.

*

Are you reviewing your goals every single day? Are you reading positive, inspiring material …as well? Do you maintain high standards for the people in your life, dropping negative people quickly?… Every piece of input you allow to reach you is part of your self-programming.

Be very conscious about what you allow in.

*

When a negative thought arises, try welcoming it with a “that’s cool” or “okay.” Give it nothing to push against, so it can’t grow stronger…stop using resistance training with them. Let them push against only air, so they grow weaker, softer, and quieter.

*

Your biggest problems are opportunities and growth lessons.

*

The quickest way to raise the vibe of a depressed person is to punch them. For lasting results punch them every 108 minutes.

*

Negative people have an endless supply of pity party invitations. If you receive one, don’t RSVP.

*

One of the secrets to success is recognizing that motivation follows action.

*

If anyone tries to label me an overnight success, then I will have to label that person a moron.

*

You can be homeless and forgotten, or you can be rich and famous, and you can still do your best to serve the highest good of all and to think win-win.

*

When you start out in a brand new field with no experience, you’re going to suck… most likely really suck…But screwing up is perfectly OK. That’s supposed to happen.  Screwing up is how you learn. Every mistake helps you make new distinctions and increase your skill.

*

In reading the biographies of very successful men and women, one theme frequently surfaces: such people have a strong bias for action. Those who achieve high levels of success in some areas of life tend to take a LOT more action than those who settle for average or below average results.

*

Using passion as your only fuel will no more assure you of success than being in love will ensure a successful long-term relationship. Self-discipline is far more important than passion, especially in business. In fact, if you develop the quality of self-discipline to a high degree, it will put passion to shame.

*

Even as setbacks occur, do your best to keep refocusing your thoughts toward the expectation that your life is getting better. Not worse. Not the same. Better. If that’s still too difficult, then have a good laugh at how truly pathetic your life has become.

*

The only way to win consistently at life is to regard every situation as a learning experience. That’s the only outcome you can really guarantee. If you make that your primary aim, losing becomes impossible.

*

If you think it’s difficult to commit to something for so many years, you’re right. It is difficult. That’s why average and below average results are more common than exceptional results…If you simply stick it out longer than most people, your odds of success increase.

*

This week do more of what you love than you did last week. The more you enjoy your work, the easier it is to feel motivated. This kind of hard work feels good.

*

It’s easy to say that you’re committed to completing a project. Anyone can say they’re committed. But a real commitment means that you’re willing to do the dirty work…when you’re committed, you accept the existence of difficult work, and you decide to push through it regardless of the difficulty.

*

In reality you are never in the past or future.  You exist only in the present moment. Even when you remember the past or envision the future, you’re still thinking those thoughts in the present. All you really have is right now.

*

The problem may simply be that you downright suck. But it’s OK to suck. Remember this line from The Matrix:
“Everyone falls the first time.”
You just need to build your skill level.

*

Pursuing happiness is a happiness-increasing activity itself. If you start taking deliberate steps to increase your happiness, you can feel happier just by doing that, and your outlook for better long-term happiness improves as well.

*

Today. That’s the only day there is.

*

Motivation starts the race but self-discipline ultimately crosses the finish line.

*

Can you play a creepy game that makes you feel scared and actually enjoy it?  Yes…You realize … that the avatar’s fate is not your fate…You can apply this … to your physical life as well…Allow yourself to have fun, even when experiencing seemingly negative emotions, by experiencing them without identifying with them.

*

Exercise daily for just 30 days, then quit. Maintain a neatly organized desk for 30 days, then slack off. Read for an hour a day for 30 days, then go back to watching TV. Could you do it? It still requires a bit of discipline and commitment, but not nearly so much as making a permanent change.

*

…shifting your thoughts is a conscious and deliberate activity…You have to set aside an hour or so to be totally alone, sit down with pen and paper, figure out the correct thoughts/seeds you need to be thinking, and then consciously ram those new thoughts into your head, over and over again…

*

Even the mere act of observing and noticing the presence of what you don’t want in your life can trap you in a negative state. Turn your attention away from such thoughts, and concentrate on what you do want, even if your only viable option is to withdraw into your imagination.

*

Push yourself to take in new input… never previously experienced, and you will become smarter. Read a new book, listen to a new song, walk around a new location, meet a new person, eat at a new restaurant, play a new game, install new software – do something that provides fresh, new input to your mind.
