index-4_1.png

I have discovered a formula for success. Success with any goal you want to achieve, in any field, whether large or small. The formula is: intuition + inspiration + initiative = innovation. I call it the 4

i's.

Innovation can actually be the beginning or the end. You can start the process knowing you need to innovate, knowing what solution you want, but needing the steps to get there. Or you can start the process by listening to your intuition, not knowing where it is leading you and following the formula to achieve innovation as an end result. Only it's not really the end. It actually is a beginning, because once you innovate, that will lead to new projects, new inspirations and you will continue. So it is a moving, breathing process that actually never has to stop.

This book is a compilation of quotes relating to each phase of the 4i's. Some are from others, with my comments, some are mine.

This book is not meant to be read through at one or even several sittings. Ideally, read just one quote a day. Reflect on it. Apply it to yourself, even if it means changing some of the words to fit your particular situation. By the time you are finished reading all the quotes it is my wish that you will be more in tune with how to apply the 4i’s in your life and therefore closer to taking steps forward towards your success.

lead my path. Manuel Puig

this way! As Steve Jobs said:

There are 2 people

inside me - me & my

intuition. If I go against

her, she'll screw me &

if I follow her, we get

along nicely. Kim Basinger

When you don’t listen to

your intuition you find

yourself in trouble.

index-12_3.jpg

index-12_4.png

You can use your

intuition in every

aspect of your life,

whether you are male

or female. Everyone

has it, but only some

use it. It can be

developed. Once you

are used to using it

you will wonder how

you ever managed

without it!

Put it to the test! You

won’t regret it.

index-14_4.png

Develop your

intuition by

accepting that you

have it, then pay

unbeatable!

whole life be

index-16_4.png

You have to trust in

something — your

gut, destiny, life,

karma, whatever.

This approach has

never let me down,

and it has made all

the difference in my

life. Steve Jobs

When someone often

comes up with great ideas

and makes good decisions,

their intuition whether

they realize it or not.

intuition—not their

intellect.

index-19_1.jpg

INSPIRATION

It doesn’t have to be just a

fleeting feeling; It can be a way of

life.

17

index-20_1.png

index-20_2.png

index-20_3.jpg

index-20_4.png

You have the capacity

to inspire & be

inspired! You were

not born as some

kind of blank page

waiting for the world

to stamp its imprint

on you. You showed

up in this life as a

highly individuated

soul, with a specific

destiny to fulfill. Nick

Williams

Seize the day! Carpe

Diem.

Motivation is what

happens when you take

hold of an idea.

Inspiration is what

happens when an idea

takes hold of you.

admire a bit of nature: the

clouds, some flowers. Get

inspired!

index-22_4.png

We tend to forget

that happiness

doesn't come as a

result of getting

something we don't

have, but rather of

recognizing and

appreciating what

we do have. Frederick

Keonig

If you scoff at a slice of

bread because your eye is

on the loaf, you’re not

likely to ever be happy

and satiated.

One joy scatters a

hundred griefs.

Chinese Proverb

Loss of a loved one is an

opportunity to reflect upon

the time and the memories

you were afforded; it’s not a

license to spend eternity in

misery.

21

index-24_1.png

index-24_2.png

index-24_3.jpg

index-24_4.png

The essence of

philosophy is that a

man should so live

that his happiness

shall depend as little

as possible on

external things.

Epictetus

Many people who are

monetarily wealthy are

also miserable. There are

many more that are happy

though they straddle the

line of poverty.

index-25_8.png

For every minute you

are angry, you lose

sixty seconds of

happiness.

Do any of us really have

spare moments to spend

being anything but happy?

23

index-26_1.png

index-26_4.png

Inspiration and

genius--one and the

same. Victor Hugo

You can be a genius if you

are inspired enough!

24

index-27_1.png

index-27_2.png

index-27_3.jpg

index-27_4.png

Everyone is inspired at

times. You might have

it 30 minutes, or 30

days, but when you

have it 30 years, you

find success in life.

Start with 30 minutes and

go on from there!

25

index-28_1.png

index-28_2.png

index-28_3.jpg

index-28_4.png

Enthusiasm is

excitement with

inspiration,

motivation, and a

pinch of creativity. Bo

Bennett.

That's one formula for

success. Be inspired about

what you are trying to

accomplish. Add

motivation and creativity

and you will be a winner!

26

index-29_1.png

index-29_2.png

index-29_3.jpg

index-29_4.png

Live your life to the

full. Anything can

happen, and not only in

your dreams!

Stay positive and believe!

27

index-30_1.png

index-30_2.png

index-30_3.jpg

index-30_4.png

Live and work

inspired, not

perspired.

We all have to work hard,

but at times it should just

―flow‖. That’s inspiration.

28

index-31_1.png

index-31_2.png

index-31_3.jpg

index-31_4.png

The worst bankrupt in

the world is the person

who has lost his

inspiration and passion

for life. Let him lose

everything but

inspiration & he will

come through again to

success.

It’s not how many times you

fall, that counts, it’s the fact

that you get up again.

29

index-32_1.png

index-32_2.png

index-32_3.jpg

index-32_4.png

What this New Day

brings to you will

depend a great deal

on what you are

bringing to the New

Day. Why not try to

bring inspiration and

love and see what

you get back?

If you start each day with

a short meditation it will

go smoother.

30

index-33_1.png

index-33_2.png

index-33_3.jpg

index-33_4.png

A blind person asked

St. Anthony: "Can

there be anything

worse than losing eye

sight?" He replied:

"Yes, losing your

vision!"

Do you really see? Or are

you just looking?

31

index-34_1.png

index-34_2.png

index-34_3.jpg

index-34_4.png

Today is the first day

of the rest of your

life!

Live like you believe that

and you will find wonders

to behold.

32

index-35_1.jpg

Initiative

Without doing, without action, all

opportunities are lost.

33

index-36_1.png

index-36_2.png

index-36_3.jpg

index-36_4.png

One thing we will

never get back again

is time. Once it’s

gone, it will never

return. So take

initiative while you

can and use the time

well.

Watch out for the

roadblocks to initiative and

keep moving forward.

I would rather regret

the things I have done

than the things I have

not. Lucille Ball

Don’t give yourself the

opportunity to look back

with regrets.

35

index-38_1.png

index-38_2.png

index-38_3.jpg

index-38_4.png

You will pass this way

but once.

Make the most of it and

live a life of no regrets.

index-39_2.png

index-39_3.jpg

index-39_4.png

A good plan, executed

now, is better than a

perfect plan next

week. General George S.

Patton, Jr.

Perfection is one of the

roadblocks to initiative.

index-40_1.png

index-40_2.png

index-40_3.jpg

index-40_4.png

Remember, people

will judge you by your

actions, not your

intentions. You may

have a heart of gold -

but so does a

hardboiled egg.

―I thought about getting

you a present,‖ will never

be a substitute for actually

doing it.

38

The sign on the door

of opportunity says

"Push"!

You can’t always wait for

someone to beckon you in.

index-42_2.png

index-42_3.jpg

index-42_4.png

You miss 100% of the

shots you don't take.

Wayne Gretzky

If a miss is as good as a

mile, a no show is like

falling into the ditch.

40

index-43_1.png

index-43_2.png

index-43_3.jpg

index-43_4.png

Take time to

deliberate; but when

the time for action

arrives, stop thinking

and go in. Napoleon

Bonaparte

You don’t have to take

action blindly—but act you

must if anything is to ever

be accomplished.

41

index-44_1.png

index-44_2.png

index-44_3.jpg

index-44_4.png

It is not only what we

do, but also what we

do not do, for which

we are accountable.

Moliere

Stand up, get going and be

counted!

42

index-45_1.png

index-45_2.png

index-45_3.jpg

Great acts are made

up of small deeds. Lao

Tzu

Do not lie in a ditch,

and say God help me;

use the lawful tools

He hath lent thee.

put feet to your prayers,

works to your faith, get up

and go!

index-47_4.png

There comes a moment

when you have to stop

revving up the car and

shove it into gear. David

Mahoney.

If you are always waiting for

the perfect moment to act,

you probably never will.

Fight your resistance and

get going!

45

index-48_3.jpg

index-48_4.png

Success seems to be

connected with

action. Successful

people keep moving.

They make mistakes,

but don't quit. Conrad

Hilton, Hilton Hotels

Successful people didn’t

get that way by doing

nothing. Many of them

made terrible mistakes but

didn’t stop until they

succeeded.

46

index-49_1.png

index-49_2.png

index-49_3.jpg

index-49_4.png

Done is better than

perfect.

Donna Kozik

You can always go back and

fill in the details later. Don’t

allow your quest for

perfection to paralyze you

from taking action.

47

index-50_1.png

index-50_2.png

index-50_3.jpg

index-50_4.png

A man who has to be

convinced to act

before he acts is not

a man of action. You

must act as you

breathe. Georges

Clemmanceau

Mum's know that. When

they need new strategy to

get their toddler to eat

their greens they need to

take ACTION or else

they will be at the table all

night!

48

The right man is the

one who seizes the

moment. Johann Wolfgang

von Goethe.

One thing you will never get

back again is time. Once

time is gone, it will never

return again.

49

index-52_1.png

index-52_2.png

index-52_3.jpg

index-52_4.png

A man would do

nothing if he waited

until he could do it so

well that no one could

find fault. John Henry

Newman

A job done well is worth

more than a perfect plan.

50

index-53_1.png

index-53_2.png

index-53_3.jpg

index-53_4.png

To escape criticism, do

nothing, say nothing, be

nothing. Elbert Hubbard

We are own worst critics.

Fear of criticism masquerades

as perfectionism and yet it’s

not likely someone else is

going to think less of you

than what you think of

yourself.

51

index-54_1.png

index-54_2.png

index-54_3.jpg

index-54_4.png

Don't fall victim to

what I call the ready-

aim-aim-aim-aim

syndrome. You must

be willing to fire. T.

Boone Pickens.

If you are overly

concerned about what

others might think, or if

you might fail, you won't

progress. You must be

willing to step out and try.

If you fall down, well, you

can always get up and try

again!

52

index-55_1.jpg

Innovation

It is better to shift one's plan late

in life than to run around in

circles with the wrong plan.

You are never too old

to set another goal or

to dream a new

dream. C.S. Lewis

One who has no dreams

left must be dead.

54

index-57_1.png

index-57_2.png

index-57_3.jpg

index-57_4.png

Just because you did it

that way yesterday,

doesn't mean you have

to do it that way today!

If you can find some easier,

quicker, shorter, better,

faster way to do it, do it! Be

open to change.

55

If you don't like the

way things are,

change 'm!

things are never changes

If at first the idea is

not absurd, then

there will be no hope

for it. Einstein

Step out and try

something crazy!

index-60_2.png

index-60_3.jpg

index-60_4.png

There are many who

failed & made

mistakes, who

showed promise &

potential, but were

disappointed over &

over again, until,

through the strength

to persevere that

was ignited in part by

those who believed in

them, they

succeeded.

Encourage & stand by

those you care for.

If you always do what

you always did, you will

always get what you

always got. Einstein.

Is that what you want? Same

old, same old? Or are you

ready to step out and be

innovative-dare to be

different!

59

index-62_1.png

index-62_2.png

index-62_3.jpg

index-62_4.png

When all think alike,

then no one is

thinking. Walter Lippman.

Those that make news are

the ones who dare to do

something different and

stick their heads above the

crowds. Don't be afraid of

an original idea, just

because it hasn't been

done before!

60

index-63_1.png

index-63_2.png

index-63_3.jpg

index-63_4.png

Doing the same thing

over and over, yet

expecting different

results is the

definition of crazy.

Step out of your comfort

zone and try something

new!

A chess player makes

the best moves

because they are

based on what he

wants the board to

look like 10-20

moves in the future.

Garry Ksaparov

He is thinking ahead into

the future and mapping

out his strategy. Some

things take time until you

start getting results.

A mistake is evidence

that someone tried.

Don't worry about mistakes.

Learn something, don't keep

making the same ones, & try

again.

index-66_4.png

People that stay put

& never go anywhere

& conform to what

everybody else is

doing, don’t even

raise an eyebrow;

they don’t wake you

up or cause a stir.

What about you? Are you

following your personal

journey--going where your

intuition leads you, or are

you doing what you are

told to do by others,

whether your heart agrees

or not?

of success. Chinese

proverb

When you fail it can be a

blessing in disguise—a

chance to really get it right

this time!
