“Pay careful attention to your state of mind because it will act on whatever it is you focus on most.”

“Never had she been so grateful for a simple ray of sunlight.”

“The only thing over which he had true power were his thoughts. If he could control his thoughts, he could lead any life he chose.”

“Every failure brings with it the seed of an equivalent advantage.”

“He realized he wasn’t alone, despite how lonely some days felt, and discovered that more than 13 million people in the United States shared his affliction, not to mention hundreds of millions more around the world.”

“Oh…I thought you were actually going to do something about it,” she said. “I didn’t know you were just talking about it.”

“When you control your thoughts, you enjoy every moment,” he explains, “because every moment can be a defining moment in your life.”

“He realized he needed to set daily standards and live by them, one day at a time. He grabbed a piece of paper and wrote down all the criteria of a successful life as his true self: taking his kids to school each morning, picking them up three days a week, no working on weekends, and focusing on his health by exercising each day. Mills even made rules around his clients: their income, their assets, no evening appointments, no appointments out of his office, and that they had to be nice people. He color-coded each part, outlined them on a large sheet, made several copies, and then laminated each one. The next day, Mills handed a copy to Gerry and told her she had a new husband. Then he gave a copy to his children and said they had a new dad. He took another copy and stuck it on the refrigerator. These went beyond goals—they were daily standards that, if upheld, would give him everything he ever wanted in life. “Because I made the decision to be that person, I was instantly happier,” Mills says. “My happiness was no longer tied to future achievement, but to living my daily standards.”
