Unjust criticism is usually disguised compliment. It often means that you have aroused jealously and envy. Remember that no one ever kicks a dead log.
Dale Carnegie (1888 - 1955)

It is the way we react to circumstances that determines our feeling.
There is only one way . . . to get anybody to do anything. . . . And that is by making the other person want to do it.
Success is getting what you want; happiness is wanting what you get.
People rarely succeed unless they have fun in what they are doing.
The most important thing in life is not simply to capitalize on your gains. Any fool can do that. The important thing is to profit from your loses. That requires intelligence, and makes the difference between a man of sense and a fool.
First ask yourself: What is the worst that can happen? Then prepare to accept it. Then prepare to improve on the worst.
Flaming enthusiasm, backed by horse sense and persistence, is the quality that most frequently makes for success.
I deal with the obvious. I present, reiterate and glorify the obvious - because the obvious is what people need to be told.
Do the hard jobs first. The easy jobs will take care of themselves.
