Brian Tracy is an icon in the personal development industry. He has written over 300 books in success and personal achievement.
I remember listening to Brian Tracy over 10 years ago while I was starting my first career as a programmer. I picked up one of this audio cds and began listening to it. He taught me how to set goals, how to build a strong work ethic, how to become more productive, save money, manage money and more.
I must admit, if it wasn’t for some of the principles Brain Tracy has taught me in the past, I wouldn’t be where I am today.
I’m a big fan of Brian Tracy and I was also lucky enough to meet him in person and have lunch with him. I also co-wrote a book with him called “Counter Attack : Business Strategies for Explosive Growth in the New Economy”.
In this post, I’ll share with you some of my favourite Brian Tracy quotes that will help inspire you and achieve greater success.

I began writing books after speaking for several years and I realize that when you have a written book people think that you’re smarter than you really are if I can joke. But it’s interesting.
