I'd like to tell you a quick story about how a quote literally helped me change my life.
About 14 years ago I started a blog, this blog, and just wrote about the lessons I had learned in my life in the hope that it would help others. Later on when I truly wanted to leave the rat race and become a full time entrepreneur creating online products, all I could think about was 'How do I get more money, how can I make more so I can leave my job, what can I do to bring in more income?' These are the questions I asked all the time for around 2 years. Don't get me wrong, I was writing great content for the blog and creating products that would help people in their own life but it just wasn't working for me.
Then I came across this quote:
That's when it hit me. Within the space of a few minutes my whole view of my business changed and I realised I shouldn't be asking the question: 'How much money can I make?' I should be asking the question 'How many more people can I help?
That's when I started asking our community what they wanted and what they need in their life to make their life better.
My business changed very quickly and I was able to give up my full time job in September 2012 and I have never looked back since.
Over the years I have collected thousands of deep quotes. Quotes that have changed my thinking, quotes that have made me stop and think and quotes that have literally changed my whole life. That is the power that a few words can have.
Here is a collection of deep quotes that I think could really make you stop and think about your own life.
