A Quote by Stephen R. Covey on argument, correction, learning, mistakes, and people

Don't argue for other people's weaknesses. Don't argue for your own. When you make a mistake, admit it, correct it, and learn from it -- immediately.

A Quote by Stephen R. Covey on adventure, creativity, day, experience, life, people, potential, security, and spirit

Ineffective people live day after day with unused potential. They experience synergy only in small, peripheral ways in their lives. But creative experiences can be produced regularly, consistently, almost daily in people's lives. It requires enormous personal security and openness and a spirit of adventure.

A Quote by Stephen R. Covey on apologies, character, heart, order, pity, principles, security, and strength

It takes a great deal of character strength to apologize quickly out of one's heart rather than out of pity. A person must possess himself and have a deep sense of security in fundamental principles and values in order to genuinely apologize.

A Quote by Stephen R. Covey on ability, awareness, choice, conscience, day, decisions, empowerment, imagination, independence, learning, management, and self-awareness

In addition to self-awareness, imagination and conscience, it is the fourth human endowment-independent will-that really makes effective self-management possible. It is the ability to make decisions and choices and to act in accordance with them. It is the ability to act rather than to be acted upon, to proactively carry out the program we have developed through the other three endowments. Empowerment comes from learning how to use this great endowment in the decisions we make every day.

A Quote by Stephen R. Covey on belief, character, ethics, experience, happiness, learning, life, people, principles, and success

The character ethic, which I believe to be the foundation of success, teaches that there are basic principles of effective living, and that people can only experience true success and enduring happiness as they learn and integrate these principles into their basic character.

A Quote by Stephen R. Covey on anger, cynicism, disappointment, disillusionment, emotion, feeling, meaning, people, quality, relationships, and resentment

Lose/Win people bury a lot of feelings. And unexpressed feelings come forth later in uglier ways. Psychosomatic illnesses often are the reincarnation of cumulative resentment, deep disappointment and disillusionment repressed by the Lose/Win mentality. Disproportionate rage or anger, overreaction to minor provocation, and cynicism are other embodiments of suppressed emotion. People who are constantly repressing, not transcending feelings toward a higher meaning find that it affects the quality of their relationships with others.
