Alan Cohen Quotes

Personal growth is not a matter of learning new information but of unlearning old limits.

Forget what you’ve been taught so you can remember what you know.

Do not wait until the conditions are perfect to begin. Beginning makes the conditions perfect.

Put aside ambition for public recognition, and simply do what you do because it feels good inside.

Those who love you are not fooled by mistakes you have made or dark images you hold about yourself. They remember your beauty when you feel ugly; your wholeness when you are broken; your innocence when you feel guilty; and your purpose when you are confused.

Everything that you need to succeed has been given to you.

Great masters merit emulation, not worship.

We believe we are hurt when we don’t receive love. But that is not what hurts us. Our pain comes when we do not give love. We were born to love. You might say that we are divinely created love machines. We function most powerfully when we are giving love. The world has led us to believe that our wellbeing is dependent on other people loving us. But this is kind of upside down thinking that has caused so many of our problems. The truth is our well being is dependent on our giving love. It is not about what comes back; it is about what goes out!

You don’t need to get anyone else to agree with your truth.
You just need to live it.

Alan Cohen

You can be helping many people, but if you are not helping yourself, you have missed the one person you were born to heal.

Be happy with what you have. Be excited about what you want.

When you want what you want more than you fear what you want, you will have it.

Happy people do not demand a lot from the world because their happiness proceeds from a place deeper than the world can touch.

So money is not the answer to problems; wealth mentality is.

Your thoughts do not create reality, but they do create your experience.

Revisit your past only to recognize how far you have come.

Alan Cohen

You are in integrity when the life you are living on the outside matches who you are on the inside.

Everything will line up perfectly when knowing and living the truth becomes more important than looking good.

Abundance is not a situation- it is an attitude.

Use pain as a stepping stone, not a camp ground.

Since you are the one who has to live with your choices, be sure they are your own.

To think you know what is best for another person is an industrial-strength ego trip.

True progress comes not through action, but through awakening.

All limits exist only in the mind, and it is only in the mind that they can be overcome.

You give your power away when you make someone or something outside of you more important than what is inside of you.
