A Quote by Anthony (Tony) Robbins on achievement, direction, fulfillment, goals, happiness, life, obstacles, purpose, and reason

Goals are a means to an end, not the ultimate purpose of our lives. They are simply a tool to concentrate our focus and move us in a direction. The only reason we really pursue goals is to cause ourselves to expand and grow. Achieving goals by themselves will never make us happy in the long term; it's who you become, as you overcome the obstacles necessary to achieve your goals, that can give you the deepest and most long-lasting sense of fulfillment.

Tony Robbins (1960 -)

A Quote by Anthony (Tony) Robbins on achievement, direction, life, people, power, and reason

One reason so few of us achieve what we truly want is that we never direct our focus; we never concentrate our power. Most people dabble their way through life, never deciding to master anything in particular.

Tony Robbins (1960 -)

A Quote by Anthony (Tony) Robbins on action, control, direction, and life

In essence, if we want to direct our lives, we must take control of our consistent actions. It's not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives, but what we do consistently.

A Quote by William Shakespeare on direction, honesty, love, and world

I had rather be a toad And live upon the vapor of a dungeon Than keep a corner in the thing I love For others' uses. O monstrous world! Take note, take note, o world, To be direct and honest is not safe!

William Shakespeare (1564 - 1616)

A Quote by William Shakespeare on circumstances, direction, lies, modesty, order, peace, and virtue

Can you nominate in order now the degrees of the lie? I will name you the degrees. The first, the Retort Courteous; the second, the Quip Modest; the third, the Reply Churlish; the fourth, the Reproof Valiant; the fifth; the Countercheck Quarrelsome; the sixth, the Lie with Circumstance; the seventh, the Lie Direct. All these you may avoid but the Lie Direct; and you may avoid that too, with an If. . . . Your If is the only peace-maker; much virtue in If.

William Shakespeare (1564 - 1616)

A Quote by William James on action, control, direction, and feeling

Action and feeling go together and by regulating the action which is under the more direct control of the will, we can regulate the feeling, which is not.

History records the successes of men with objectives and a sense of direction. Oblivion is the position of small men overwhelmed by obstacles.
