A Quote by Steve Pavlina on think, business, and groupthink

Think for yourself.  Unplug yourself from follow-the-follower groupthink, and virtually ignore what everyone else in your industry is saying (except the ones everyone agrees is crazy).  Do your own research, draw your own conclusions, set your own course, and stick to your guns.  When you’re just starting out, people will tell you you’re wrong.  After you’ve blown past them, they’ll tell you you’re crazy.  A few years after that, they’ll (privately) ask you to mentor them.

A Quote by Steve Pavlina on networking, network, and business

Network selectively.  Nothing says “business newbie” like shotgun networking.  “You never know when someone might say yes” is marketing for dummies.  Take the time to build a profile of your ideal customers, and target your networking activities to reach them.  Speak to those who are already predisposed to want what you offer.  Almost any profile is better than “anyone with a pulse.”

A Quote by Steve Pavlina on steve pavlina, soulful relationships, relationships, oneness, and connectedness

Everyone you meet in your life - even total strangers - is already intimately connected to you.  The idea that we are all separate and distinct beings is nothing but an illusion.  We are all parts of a larger whole, like individual cells in a body.

A Quote by Steve Pavlina on challenges and responsibility

Tackling challenges that are too big for you is what makes you grow as a human being. Why do you think this problem keeps coming up in your life, staring you in the face? Do you think you’re supposed to ignore it and hide from it and wait for someone else to solve it for you? If you notice it, you own it.

A Quote by Steve Pavlina on passion, work, career, right livelihood, and giving

If something is important enough to you that you feel the urge to donate your money or time to it, I think it’s best to try to express that form of giving through your career, not just as something you do on the side.  If you enjoy your volunteering and charitable activities more than your career, it means your career is in serious need of an upgrade.  In my opinion your career should be your best outlet for giving.

A Quote by Steve Pavlina on intelligence and entrepreneur

The more new situations you experience, the greater your ability to adapt to ever-changing circumstances.  For a long-term employee, being laid off may come as a serious blow.  But for a long-term entrepreneur, losing a particular client is just par for the course.  The entrepreneur has learned invariant representations which make it easy to add new income streams, while the employee may have much lower intelligence in this area.  Similarly, people who interact socially with new people every day will develop much greater social intelligence than those who interact with the same people over and over.

A Quote by Steve Pavlina on test, testing, act, and action

Imaginary testing is unreliable, and in many cases, it’s a huge waste of time and energy.  In truth you just don’t know what will happen until you try.  You may start a business, and it could take off in ways no one could predict.  Or it could be a complete failure.  You could ask for a date and end up with the partner of your dreams.  Or you could be rejected cold.  It’s great to visualize what you want, but you never really know what’s going to happen until you act.

A Quote by Steve Pavlina on passion, profit, and conscious capitalism

Do what you love, but be damned sure it's profitable. If you do work you love, but it doesn't generate income, your business will fail.  If you do work you hate, but it generates income, your health will fail… and your business along with it.  If you can't do what you love and make it profitable, you've either got a hobby or a headache, not a sustainable business.  Don't settle for anything less than passion and profit.

A Quote by Steve Pavlina on giving

in

Whatever happens to me during the course of my life — physically, socially, or financially – I can always choose to focus on giving.  When I’m in that state, nothing else matters.  I cease to exist as a separate being and merge into an expression of divine oneness.

A Quote by Steve Pavlina on job, work, livelihood, value, and time

"Realize that you earn income by providing value — not time – so find a way to provide your best value to others, and charge a fair price for it."
