“Your most important sale in life is to sell yourself to yourself.” - Maxwell Maltz

Maxwell Maltz was previously a doctor and surgeon, as well as a writer. He had big beliefs in personal development and wanted to share his ideas with others.

The gist of this quote is the idea that you should be yourself, and to change change who you are for someone else. Showing your strengths and believing in yourself is one of the hardest things to do, but once you’ve reached that threshold you will see many benefits.

“If you cannot do great things, do small things in a great way.” — Napoleon Hill

This quote can be interpreted in many different ways. How I see it is that if you are someone venturing in a new field it’s important to focus on your building blocks. No one jumps straight into a successful career, it takes time to work on small skills which can form that business.

Forgive others, not because they deserve forgiveness, but because you deserve peace.” - Jonathan Lockwood Hule

Betrayal is inevitable, how you forgive is the difference between you and the average person. The goal of this quote is to convey the idea that it’s not worth holding grudge as much as someone else may have screwed you, forgiveness allows for you to have peace of mind. Being the bigger person in this case is the way to go.

“Never assume that the person you are dealing with is weaker or less important than you are.” — Robert Greene

Having empathy may come naturally to some while harder for others. The idea of this quote is that you should be treating everyone the same no matter their social status or other factors that may change your opinion on them.
