“You’re never going to master something unless you understand this… the brain learns much better when we’re emotionally engaged, when we want to learn, when we’re motivated.” -Robert Greene

“Are you taking orders from the masters?  Every day, I wake up and choose to stay free.  To work on what I want to work on.  To play when I want to play.  I choose to live the life I always dreamt I would live.  Today you have to choose too.” –James Altucher

“People love simple and preposterous lies. They much prefer them to the truth.  Truth is elusive.  Difficult to discover.  Infinitely nuanced.  Hard to hold on to.  Each tiny bit of truth comes at a high price….  Nor does truth make you feel good. Like a magnifying mirror, it shows blemishes.  You squirm in your seat when you see it.  Often, you want to turn off the lights. 

Not so with myth.  It comes right over to you, fawns over you, airbrushes your photo, and Botoxes your face.  It flatters you with weak light and strong angles.  It pretends you are the noble master and it is merely the humble slave… willing to do your bidding.” -Bill Bonner

“As I said, people who are emotionally positive about their chances for success have a history of succeeding.  They’re doers, not dreamers.  So, forget about positive thinking.  Instead, start rewiring your brain by working toward the goal you want to achieve or practicing the skill you want to master.  At first, you won’t feel very good about what you’re doing because you won’t be very good at it.  But stick with it.  Remember, it takes about 1,000 hours to achieve competency in anything worthwhile.” -Mark Ford

“The principle of accelerated failure is this: To develop any complex skill, you must be willing to make mistakes and endure failures. The faster you can make those mistakes and suffer those failures, the quicker you will master the skill.” -Mark Ford

“A creditor is worse than a slave-owner; for the master owns only your person, but a creditor owns your dignity, and can command it.” –Victor Hugo
