5 Quotes That Have Forever Changed Me

Most people love reading inspirational quotes. Most good books I read start each chapter or key point with a famous quote as an anchor for the lesson being taught. I have read, studied and used 1000s of famous quotes over the past 5 years (since becoming an entrepreneur who writes and produces a lot of written content).

I have also learned a lot about life, business, being a dad and husband, being self reliant and appreciation of how challenging life can be (and everything I have to be grateful for).

The following is a list of the top 5 quotes that have transformed me. The deep wisdom combined with the simplicity of each message is a potent combination and I hope you will share some of your favorites as well.

Here are my top 5 quotes in order…

#5 – Wayne Dyer…

When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change

#4 – Calvin Coolidge…

Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not: the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.

#3 – Albert Schweitzer…

Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.

#2 – Howard Thurman…

Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.

#1 – Bruce Lee…

Don’t pray for an easy life, pray for the strength to endure a hard one.
