Brian Tracy: On Becoming a Millionaire

The average person has four ideas a year which, if any one is acted on, would make them a millionaire. — Brian Tracy, inspirational author and speaker

Four ideas! Every year! Are you a millionaire yet? Have you taken any action recently to live your dreams? Do it today. Take action. Take any action. — John Kremer

Brian Tracy on Becoming a Millionaire

Here are more of my favorite Brian Tracy quotations:

Ambitious people have one remarkable characteristic in sales. They dream big dreams. They have high aspirations. They see themselves as capable of being the best in their fields. They know that the top 20 percent of salespeople make 80 percent of the sales, and they are determined to be among that top group. — Brian Tracy

More than 80% of self-made millionaires in America began with nothing or, in many cases, less than nothing. — Brian Tracy

Decide right now you are going to be among the very best in your field. Decide to join the top 10 percent. Determine exactly how much the top 10 percent of salespeople both sell and earn, and then set that number as your goal or target for the year. From this moment forward, resolve to do only those things that will get you into the top 10 percent. — Brian Tracy

Make a game of finding something positive in every situation. Ninety-five percent of your emotions are determined by how you interpret events to yourself. — Brian Tracy

The 80/20 Rule is one of the most helpful of all concepts of time and life management. It is also called the Pareto Principle after its founder, the Italian economist Vilfredo Pareto, who first wrote about it in 1895. Pareto noticed that people in his society seemed to divide naturally into what he called the “vital few,” the top 20% in terms of money and influence, and the “trivial many,” the bottom 80%. — Brian Tracy

Perhaps the most important word in success and happiness is the word, “ask.” — Brian Tracy

Make happiness the organizing principle of your life. That is, compare every possible action and decision against your standard of happiness to see whether it would make you happier or unhappier. Soon, you will discover that almost all the problems in your life come from choices that you have made—or are currently making—that do not contribute to your happiness. — Brian Tracy

Love only grows by sharing. You can only have more for yourself by giving it away to others. — Brian Tracy

No one lives long enough to learn everything they need to learn starting from scratch. To be successful, we absolutely, positively have to find people who have already paid the price to learn the things that we need to learn to achieve our goals. — Brian Tracy

The key to success is to focus our conscious mind on things we desire, not things we fear. — Brian Tracy

Your success in every area of life will be based largely on the quality and quantity of relationships that you can initiate and develop over time. In the world of business and sales today, relationships are everything. — Brian Tracy

Winners are always looking for a way to deal with the challenges that they face, and losers are always making excuses to avoid dealing with challenges. — Brian Tracy

The key to happiness is this: Dedicate yourself to the development of your natural talents and abilities by doing what you love to do, and doing it better and better in the service of a cause that is greater than yourself. — Brian Tracy

If you want to make others happy, start by living the kind of life and doing the kinds of things that make you happy. — Brian Tracy

The fact is that you can’t give away to anyone else what you don’t have for yourself. Just as you can’t give money to the poor if you don’t have any, you can’t make someone else happy if you yourself are miserable. — Brian Tracy

You cannot control what happens to you, but you can control your attitude toward what happens to you, and in that, you will be mastering change rather than allowing it to master you. — Brian Tracy

Divine discontent always comes before a positive life change. If you were perfectly satisfied, you would never take any action to improve or change your circumstances. Only when you’re dissatisfied for some reason do you have the inner motivation to engage in the outer behaviors that lead you onward and upward. — Brian Tracy

Make a decision to be successful right now. Most people never decide to be wealthy and that is why they retire poor. — Brian Tracy
