In these related posts, I am sharing quotes from a wonderful book called, “Lead the Field’ by Earl Nightingale.
In summary, the book talks about your attitude. It determines your actions, as well as the actions of others. Mr. Nightingale takes our lame excuses for NOT being successful and refutes them all.
Today’s Quote: “Most people have never learned to think creatively.”
I actually didn’t take this quote well. I thought, “What does he mean?”
All creatures, except one, are supplied with a set of instincts and because of that they don’t need much of a brain. Only man has the miracle of mind. He alone can solve problems and create new ideas. The most important physical aspect of man is his brain.
Man only uses a small percentage of his mental ability. We react to stimuli. Mr. Nightingale goes on to say how most people do not think. When we encounter a problem, we run to others for advice. Those people are not any smarter than us! Few people will sit down, write their problem on a note-pad and deliberately begin to think.
Successful people are not people without problems. They are people who have learned to solved their problems by thinking!
