Sharon Lechter Advice

Sharon Lechter quotes: these are the most important tidbits from accountant, educator, and co-author of Rich Dad Poor Dad, Sharon Lechter.

“Success begins with imagination and is followed by belief and action.”

“Decisions are being made each day.  Are you making them or do you allow others to make them for you?  Take control of your own life.”

“In order to succeed, we must take chances.  Those chances come with the possibility of failure.  If we fail, we learn what choice not to make next time.  If we succeed, that success is often parallel to the amount of risk taken.  Those who risk more have more to gain.”

“Make a point to visualize your desired future successes on a daily basis.”

“Everyone faces adversity some time during their life.  Many people learn to cope and move forward.  Others stop dead in their tracks.  When faced with opposition or roadblocks on the path to one’s purpose, it is important to learn to identify the problem, create a solution, and act on it.  This is the only way to continue to move toward accomplishing dreams and following passions.”

“Even in times of disappointment, always keep faith and believe in yourself.”

“Think big!  Starting small is good for first steps, but always aim to finish big.”

“Three things that mean success: (1) doing something impactful and loving every minute of it; (2) finding the good in life’s imperfections; (3) realizing that your contribution to the world is valued, if not by others, by you.”

“An opportunity will seldom knock twice.  When a chance comes along to better yourself, don’t hesitate!  Grab the brass ring and run with it.  If you do not, you will always wonder how your life could have changed for the better.”

“Persistence is the best tactic to use when faced with adversity in the pursuit of a dream.  Without it, success may no longer be an option.”

“There is little more sad than reaching the golden years and wondering about the path not taken and having regrets.”

“Are you doing what you believe in, or are you settling for what you’re doing?  If your heart isn’t in it, it may not be your definite purpose in life.”
