Quotes on Success: Anders Sorman-Nilsson

15 01 2010

I am currently reading a fantastic book called Secrets of Great Success Coaches. It’s an original idea in that each chapter of the book is comprised of an interview with a prominent or successful entrepreneur, thinker, author or speaker. The chapter I read this morning was written by Anders Sorman-Nilsson, an international speaker and business & personal coach. Here are some of my favourite quotes from his chapter – enjoy.



Anders Sorman-Nillson, on “Goals For Life”

“I realised that to be successful, I just had to work smarter and be a little more focused than the people I was competing with.”

“People who are passionate about what they do and truly know their purpose, will always find it easy to perform at their peak.”

“Life success is solely a matter of attitude. It is attitude, not aptitude, that will ultimately give you altitude in life.”

“Essentially, people need to focus on only one thing – to be the best at being themselves. Everyone else is already taken.”

“The one thing that will have the biggest impact on one’s life when done repeatedly, is constant learning. Corporate futurist Alvin Toffler says, “The illiterates of the 21st Century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn and relearn.” Oliver Wendell Holmes also said, “A person’s mind, once stretched, never returns to its original dimensions.” ”

“We frequently underestimate what we can achieve in a year, and overestimate what we can do in a month.”

“Whatever we get is a direct result of our output.”

“Time is just a human construct designed to impose order on chaos.”

“One of the biggest keys to success is sharing your goals with people who will support you in achieving them. Find a group of people who are happy and successful in what they do, and have a track record of achieving their outcomes, and share your visions with them, asking for specific tips and advice that will be useful to you. Sharing your goals with pessimistic people is not a good idea. It is vital that the people you surround yourself with respect and appreciate your evolution.”
