More Quotes from Stephen R. Covey:

Basing our happiness on our ability to control everything is futile.
Stephen R. Covey

In addition to self-awareness, imagination and conscience, it is the fourth human endowment-independent will-that really makes effective self-management possible. It is the ability to make decisions and choices and to act in accordance with them. It is the ability to act rather than to be acted upon, to proactively carry out the program we have developed through the other three endowments. Empowerment comes from learning how to use this great endowment in the decisions we make every day.
Stephen R. Covey

How different our lives are when we really know what is deeply important to us, and keeping that picture in mind, we manage ourselves each day to be and to do what really matters most
Stephen R. Covey

Happiness - in part at least - the fruit of the desire and ability to sacrifice waht we want for what we want eventually
Stephen R. Covey

We not not our feelings. We are not our moods. We not even our thoughts.
Stephen R. Covey

Wisdom is your perspective on life, your sense of balance, your understanding of how the various parts and principles apply and relate to each other. It embraces judgment, discernment, comprehension. It is a gestalt or oneness, and integrated wholeness.
Stephen R. Covey
