A Quote by Jane Addams on growth, plants, progress, and time

The new growth in the plant swelling against the sheath, which at the same time imprisons and protects it, must still be the truest type of progress.

It is the eternal, inescapable law that growth comes only from work and preparation, whether the growth be material, mental, or spiritual. Work has no substitute.

A Quote by Isaac Taylor on growth, maxims, reading, thinking, and understanding

Thinking, not growth, makes manhood. Accustom yourself, therefore, to thinking. Set yourself to understand whatever you see or read. To join thinking with reading is one of the first maxims, and one of the easiest operations.

A Quote by Hyrum W. Smith on change, character, charity, emotion, faith, goals, growth, humility, ideas, imagination, mind, order, peace, performance, sacrifice, success, thinking, wisdom, and words

In order to move our self image higher on the spectrum of performance, we must specifically attack our self-talking and our self-thinking? By using constructive imagination - the eye of faith - we can change our self image. Constructive imagination consists of three parts. Verbal: The words we say to ourselves and about ourselves. Visual: What we see ourselves doing. Emotional: What we feel about ourselves. Specifically, what must we do? We define the role we want to change, exactly how we want to change, and then we have a written affirmation describing the change. By repeating the affirmation we will find our constructive imagination . . . our eye of faith . . . changing. And, we are changing.

A Quote by Hyrum W. Smith on achievement, assumptions, change, character, charity, day, goals, growth, humility, ideas, imagination, life, machines, mind, needs, peace, sacrifice, success, trying, and wisdom

Seeing ourselves as we want to be is a key to personal growth. To successfully bring about change in our lives we need to implement a system of change that is build upon three assumptions. First Assumption: We change our lives by changing the attitudes of our minds. Second Assumption: We become what we think about all day long. Third Assumption: Our mind is naturally goal seeking. Please remember these assumptions. Our mind is always trying to accomplish something. We have a powerful machine wanting to achieve goals. It will set the goals that we allow it to.

Wisdom: Knowledge rightly applied. We assimilate lots of knowledge. Whether or not we do anything with that knowledge is a measure of our wisdom. That implies some change . . . and change can be difficult.

A Quote by Hyrum W. Smith on change, character, charity, goals, growth, humility, ideas, imagination, improvement, justice, mind, peace, sacrifice, success, and wisdom

Success: The successful person is willing to do what the unsuccessful person is not willing to do. Draw a profile of success in whatever you are choosing to improve. If you are willing to do what that profile demands, then you have a credible demand of success. If you are not willing to do that then it just will not be there for you. You can't have the one without the other.
