10 More Inspiring Quotes From The Legend Of Personal Development

Larry Winget


1. “Be authentic. Don’t try to be someone you aren’t. You’ll hate yourself for it & the effort to maintain the facade will exhaust you. BE REAL! Many won’t like the real you but that’s better than having people adore the person that isn’t you at all” ―

2. “Training is expensive. Books are expensive. Going to seminars is expensive. Being stupid is even more expensive.”

3. “Every single person on the planet is rewarded for one thing and one thing only, and that is for serving other people. The more you serve others, the higher your reward.” This is why when I talk about public speaking I call it “service from the stage.”

4. “Everything in life is a lesson. Refusing to learn the lesson means that it will be repeated until the lesson is learned.”

5. “Nobody ever wrote down a plan to be broke, fat, lazy, or stupid. Those things are what happen when you don’t have a plan.”

6. “The world, and therefore the workplace, is full of idiots. And the reality of life is that when you get rid of one idiot, another will show up to take his place. It’s the curse of humanity.”

7. “Success is not a secret – it never has been. There are only a few really good ideas and not one of them is a secret.”

8. “What you say you want means almost nothing. When every action you make contradicts your words, your words don’t mean a damn thing! … Your life is a reflection of the choices you have made. If you want a better life, then make better choices.”
9. “Without all of the crap that ever happened to me, I would be like 99.9 percent of the world: leading a life of mediocrity, full of blame, resentment, and whining.”

10. “Don’t measure busywork. Don’t measure activity. Measure accomplishment. It doesn’t matter what people do as much as it matters what they get done.” For people who are somehow “busy all day” but have nothing to show for it, busy-ness is useless without results.”
