Brian Tracy Quotes

I am seriously kicking myself. I have listened to countless self-development coaches and authors and have for some crazy reason always skipped past the amazing Brian Tracy. I have seen his books countless of times and his name has even popped up during my conversations with others in the self-development industry.

So just before I fell asleep last night I let my playlist play, and this speaker would appear now and then between tracks and the words of advice he was sharing really blew me away. The speaker was the man himself, Brian Tracy. It took me way too long to get onto this guy and now I am a die hard fan of his work. So in the spirit of my admiration for him, I would love to share with you 45 stand out quotes from the legendary Brian Tracy.

Soak it all in, and don’t forget to purchase his books and seminars on DVD, they will rock your life!

    No one is better than you, and no one is smarter than you. If someone is doing better than you, it is because they have a skill you do not. You just need to learn what they are doing good and you will be as successful as they are at that task.

    I’m amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and amusing,
    and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head.

    The problem is something which not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about.
    Now I’m very happy that I found this in my hunt for something concerning this.

    I’m amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and amusing,
    and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head.

    The problem is something which not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about.
    Now I’m very happy that I found this in my hunt for something concerning this.
