Denis Waitley Motivational Quotes

1. Mistakes are painful when they happen, but years later a collection of mistakes is
what is called experience.

assuredly won’t. Belief is the ignition switch that gets you off the launching pad.

3. Forget about the consequences of failure. Failure is only a temporary change in
direction to set you straight for your next success.

continue to grow. We cannot choose the day or time when we will fully bloom. It
happens in its own time.

energies on moving forward toward finding the answer.

7. You must learn from your past mistakes, but not lean on your past successes.

8. Our limitations and success will be based, most often, on your own expectations
for ourselves. What the mind dwells upon, the body acts upon.

9. The reason most people never reach their goals is that they don’t define them,
learn about them, or ever seriously consider them as believable or achievable.
Winners can tell you where they are going, what they plan to do along the way,
and who will be sharing the adventure with them.

10. To establish true self-esteem we must concentrate on our successes and forget
about the failures and the negatives in our lives.

11. Failure should be our teacher, not our undertaker. Failure is a delay, not defeat. It is
a temporary detour, not a dead end. Failure is something we can avoid only by
saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing.

12. It’s not what you are that holds you back, it’s what you think you are not.

13. Where there is life, there is hope. Where there are hopes, there are dreams. Where
there are vivid dreams repeated, they become goals. Goals become the action
plans and game plans that winners dwell on in intricate detail, knowing that
achievement is almost automatic when the goal becomes an inner commitment.
The response to the challenges of life — purpose — is the healing balm that
enables each of us to face up to adversity and strife.

Best Denis Waitley Motivational Quotes

14. When you make a mistake or get ridiculed or rejected, look at mistakes as
learning experiences, and ridicule as ignorance. . . . Look at rejection as part of
one performance, not as a turn down of the performer.

15. Luck happens when opportunity encounters the prepared mind.

16. You must consider the bottom line, but make it integrity before profits.

17. Losers make promises they often break. Winners make commitments they always

18. A life lived with integrity — even if it lacks the trappings of fame and fortune is a
shining star in whose light others may follow in the years to come.

19. No man or woman is an island. To exist just for yourself is meaningless. You can
achieve the most satisfaction when you feel related to some greater purpose in
life, something greater than yourself.

20. Procrastination is the fear of success. People procrastinate because they are afraid
of the success that they know will result if they move ahead now. Because success
is heavy, carries a responsibility with it, it is much easier to procrastinate and live
on the ‘someday I’ll’ philosophy.

21. Get excited and enthusiastic about your own dream. This excitement is like a forest
fire — you can smell it, taste it, and see it from a mile away
