Monday Motivator: Larry Winget Will Kick Your . . .

Larry Winget takes a very no-nonsense and definitely not warm and fuzzy approach to personal development. In books like It's Called Work for a Reason, You're Broke Because You Want to Be, and Shut Up, Stop Whining, and Get a Life (my personal favorite), Mr. Winget tells us not necessarily what we want to hear but what we need to hear.
Some quotes from Larry:

"You can't get rich keeping other people broke."

"If it's a good idea, do it today. Not tomorrow. A good idea rarely gets better over time."

"What you think of me is none of my business."

"Success is not a secret - it never has been. There are only a few really good ideas and not one of them is a secret."

"Regardless of what the motivational speakers tell you, attitude is not everything, attitude is only one thing; sooner or later you have to get off your butt and go to work."

"I was convinced that in order to be successful I should do what everyone else was doing, but just be better at doing it. That is a clear formula for disaster in both my business and your business."

"Few people will turn to themselves to take responsibility for their results until they have exhausted all opportunities to blame someone else."

 These and more Larry Winget quotes can be found here.

And here's a short video of Larry in action:
