A Quote by Stephen R. Covey on spiritual, mental, physical, social, integral, integration, fire within, passion, and vision

Fulfilling the four needs [spiritual, mental, physical, social] in an integrated way is like combining elements in chemistry. When we reach a "critical mass" of integration, we experience spontaneous combustion--an explosion of inner synergy that ignites the fire within and gives vision, passion, and a spirit of adventure to life.

A Quote by Stephen R. Covey on plants and privacy

Private victories precede public victories. You can't invert that process any more than you can harvest a crop before you plant it.

A Quote by Stephen R. Covey on character, improvement, motives, personality, personality, privacy, promises, and relationships

The ''Inside-Out'' approach to personal and interpersonal effectiveness means to start first with self; even more fundamentally, to start with the most inside part of self -- with your paradigms, your character, and your motives. The inside-out approach says that private victories precede public victories, that making and keeping promises to ourselves recedes making and keeping promises to others. It says it is futile to put personality ahead of character, to try to improve relationships with others before improving ourselves.

A Quote by Stephen R. Covey on action, character, ethics, personality, personality, relationships, and words

The most important ingredient we put into any relationship is not what we say or what we do, but what we are. And if our words and our actions come from superficial human relations techniques (the Personality Ethic) rather than from our own inner core (the Character Ethic), others will sense that duplicity. We simply won't be able to create and sustain the foundation necessary for effective interdependence.

A Quote by Stephen R. Covey on emotion, identity, security, self-esteem, strength, and worth

Security represents your sense of worth, your identity, your emotional anchorage, your self-esteem, your basic personal strength or lack of it.

A Quote by Stephen R. Covey on achievement, day, education, good, mind, schools, and study

To focus on technique is like cramming your way through school. You sometimes get by, perhaps even get good grades, but if you don't pay the price day in and day out, you'll never achieve true mastery of the subjects you study or develop an educated mind.

A Quote by Stephen R. Covey on assumptions

We simply assume that the way we see things is the way they really are or the way they should be. And our attitudes and behaviors grow out of these assumptions.
