Citáty Paul Arden


„Všimli jste si, že ti nejchytřejší žáci ve škole nejsou těmi, kterým se daří v životě.“

„Nehledejte chválu. Hledejte kritiku.“


„V dnešním firemním světě je pouze omezená poptávka po výjimečnosti. Daleko, daleko větší je poptávka po průměrnosti.“

„Talent pomůže, ale nedostane vás tak daleko jako ambice.“

„To, co se učíte ve škole jsou fakta, známá fakta. Vaším úkolem je si tyto fakta osvojit a zapamatovat. Čím víc si zapamatujete, tím úspěšnější jste. Ti, kterým se ve škole nedaří se nezajímají o fakta nebo se k nim fakta nedostávají takovou formou, která jim přijde zajímavá. Někteří jednoduše nemají tak dobrou paměť. Paměť, ale stejně není to, co rozhoduje o tom, zda v dnešním světě uspějete.“

„Without having a goal it is difficult to score.“

„Leaders! Do not confuse being fair with fair liked.“

„If you always make the right decision, the safe decision,
the one most people make, you will be the same as everyone else.“


„The world is what YOU think of it, so think of it DIFFERENTLY and your life will change.“ Whatever You Think, Think the Opposite

„Great people have great egos; maybe that's what makes them great.“

„Too many people spend too much time trying to perfect something before they actually do it. Instead of waiting for perfection, run with what you go, and fix it along the way…“

„It's better to regret what you have done than what you haven't.“ Whatever You Think, Think the Opposite


„Be your own worst critic.
When things go wrong it's tempting to shift the blame. Don't.
Accept responsibility. People will appreciate it, and you will find out what you're capable of.“
Whatever You Think, Think the Opposite

„Being right is based upon knowledge and experience and is often provable. Knowledge comes from the past, so it's safe. It is also out of date. It's the opposite of originality. Experience is built from solutions to old situations and problems. The old situations are probably different from the present ones, so that old solutions will have to be bent to fit new problems (and possibly fit badly). Also the likelihood is that, if you've got the experience, you'll probably use it. This is lazy. Experience is the opposite of being creative. If you can prove you're right you're set in concrete. You cannot move with the times or with other people. Being right is also being boring. Your mind is closed. You are not open to new ideas. You are rooted in your own rightness, which is arrogant. Arrogance is a valuable tool, but only if used very sparingly. Worst of all, being right has a tone of morality about it. To be anything else sounds weak or fallible, and people who are right would hate to be thought fallible. So: it's wrong to be right, because people who are right are rooted in the past, rigid-minded, dull and smug. There's no talking to them.“ It's Not How Good You Are, It's How Good You Want To Be

„If you can't solve a problem, it's because you're playing by the rules“ It's Not How Good You Are, It's How Good You Want To Be

„Risks are a measure of people. People who won't take them are trying to preserve what they have. People who do take them often end up having more.

Some risks have a future, and some people call them wrong. But being right may be like walking backwards proving where you've been.

Being wrong isn't in the future, or in the past.

Being wrong isn't anywhere but being here.

Best place to be, eh?“
It's Not How Good You Are, It's How Good You Want To Be
