Brian Tracy

“The key to success is to focus our conscious mind on things we desire, not things we fear”

~Brian Tracy~

If you wanted to picture success, Brian Tracy fits the bill perfectly.

One of the most famous Brian Tracy quotes “Today the single greatest source of wealth is between your ears”, perhaps describes best how Tracy's insight has made him one of America's most successful entrepreneurs and authorities on the art of salesmanship and personal development.

The Beginning....

Born in 1944, Brian Tracy quotes his mother as being one of his biggest inspirations with her never give up attitude.

Despite being a high school drop out, Tracy sought work where he could and, after a couple of unsuccessful stints as a laborer, found his way into sales. Even at such a young age, Tracy had an unquenchable desire to succeed and, in order to become more successful in his work, he sought out the company's top salesman for advice.

Tracy decided to emulate this person's style and within 12-months he was given the much coveted “Top Salesman” award. The following year, and at the fairly tender age of 25, Tracy was made Vice-President of the entire company.

Many Brian Tracy quotes highlight his humble beginnings and how his determination to make himself better eventually led to his success.

Quotes by Brian Tracy are used today to help other individuals and businesses succeed, no matter how bleak they believe their outlook.

The Critics....

With success comes criticism, although Tracy's popularity and genuine likeability have appeared to prevent him from being targeted personally.
