The human mind is incredible. And, for that matter, so are the minds of all living creatures. God programmed a tiny spider, for instance, to weave a web. He programmed a salmon to swim thousands of miles upstream to the exact location where it was hatched. If the brains of spiders and salmon can be programmed to perform such feats, imagine what capability of the human brain can achieve.

It's not so much what happened to us as how we react to what happens that makes the difference. Cultivate the happy side of life. Have you ever stopped to think about how, when something really bad happens to us, we later see that it really happened to the best? That's so often true. So look for the silver lining in that cloud. IT IS THERE!
-- Mary Kay Ash


When children know their mothers believe in them, they develop self-confidence. On the other hand, if a parent repeatedly tells a child that he's shy, he's stupid, he's mean or he's going to grow up to be a bank robber, he'll probably develop that quality or bring that vision to pass.

There's that word again - beautiful. Don't let it scare you. There's no need, since today's definition is so different from what it used to be. Beauty now is both accessible and attainable, including such qualities as energy, health, vitality, radiance, confidence and personal style.

Imagine a situation where two women from similar backgrounds apply for the same position. They process comparable skills.

Believe in yourself and know that you can do anything in this world that you want to do if you want to do it badly enough and you are willing to travel the road. Whatever you vividly imagine, ardently desire, sincerely believe and enthusiastically act upon must inevitably come to pass.

A person is actually a product of her own thoughts; and when you think big, you achieve big things. Shakespeare said, "this is nothing good or bad but thinking makes it so." He would attain greatness must make no little plans.
-- Mary Kay Ash


God would have not given us a dream without the ability to achieve it. Winning begins when you throw away your pride and "Go for broke." When you aim at something that's bigger than you’re sure you could ever achieve, and then you practice believing and seeing yourself achieve that goal. Act as if you have already achieved it. "Fake it 'til you make it".
-- Mary Kay Ash


The difference between average people and top people can be explained in three words: and then some. The top people do what is expected of them - and then some. They are thoughtful of others; they are considerate and kind - and then some. They meet their responsibilities and their obligations fairly and squarely - and then some. They are good friends to their friends, and they can be counted on in an emergency - and then some.
-- Mary Kay Ash


I firmly believe that all we send into the lives of other does indeed come back into our own. I also believe that Christmas is that wondrous time of year when each of us renews our faith that a better world is possible. By trying to live Christmas 12 months a year, we CAN make this world a better place to live - for others and for ourselves.
-- Mary Kay Ash


Faith is wanting something with all your heart. Faith is taking a chance on something before you are sure how everything will work out. Almost anything can be accomplished by the person who really wants to succeed. But no woman will ever believe she can move a mountain unless she really wants that mountain to move. Apply this definition of faith to your dreams.
-- Mary Kay Ash


I'm not a sports fan, but I know that focused athletes are winning athletes. Of course, having focus is necessary in our everyday lives too. People who have focus in on their work begin the minute they walk through the door and don't let up. The rare individuals who perform at this level on an everyday basis are generally the best in their fields.
-- Mary Kay Ash

Set a goal and do something about it every day. Don't make "the best that I can" your objective. This gives you an open door for excuses. Tell someone about your goal. Have a plan of action that keeps you on-target every day.
-- Mary Kay Ash


We have long advocated that, when you set a goal, you first use mental imagery in seeing yourself in possession of that goal. Get a picture of what you wish to possess and keep it before you. One day your wish will become a reality!

It is important for you to have a goal. You simply can't get there if you don't know where you are going. Begin to build in your mind a dream. The write it down and make your goal realistic. Aim high enough that you will have to stretch your ability and your potential to reach it.

To a large degree, the mother sets the mood for the entire family. When she appears satisfied and cheerful, her husband and children will likely emulate her attitude; unfortunately, her negative moods are also contagious.

Sometimes I wonder if my mother was aware of the seeds she was planting in my life as a child and where they would take not only me, but thousands of other women. What she sent into my life I sent into others'. And they in turn have sent what they have into many lives as well.
-- Mary Kay Ash


Give the world the best you have, and the best will come back to you. The go-getter doesn't look around to see how much the other fellow is doing.

-- Mary Kay Ash


If you're in sales, putting yourself in the other person's shoes should be an automatic reaction. But instead of focusing on how closing the sales will benefit the customer, too many sales people are focusing on the commission they'll get. This in terms of what's good for the other person, and success will seek you out.
-- Mary Kay Ash


We all have failures, some little ones and some big ones. But it is very important to have a firm conviction that is not what happened to us that is important - it's the way we react to what happens to us We can't control the events of our lives, but we can control out reactions to those events.
