Here are 15 of our favorite quotes from the ‘prosperity preacher’, Joel Osteen.


  1. “Keep in mind, just because you don’t know the answer doesn’t mean that one does not exist. You simply haven’t discovered it yet.”

  2. “People of excellence go the extra mile to do what’s right.”

  3. “Many people are unhappy and are not experiencing life to its fullest because they’ve closed their hearts to compassion, they are motivated by only what they want and what they think they need. They rarely do anything for anybody else unless they have an ulterior goal in mind. They are self-involved and self-centered.”

  4. “Certainly, none of us enjoy going through struggles, but you have to understand that your struggle may be an opportunity for advancement and promotion. The very thing you are fighting against so tenaciously may be the springboard that catapults you to a new level of excellence. Your challenges may become your greatest assets.”

  5. “One of the main reasons that we lose our enthusiasm in life is because we become ungrateful; we take for granted what God has done for us. We let what once was a miracle become common to us. We get so accustomed to goodness, it becomes routine; it doesn’t really excite us anymore.”

  6. “Don’t simply settle for what your parents had. You can go further than that. You can do more, have more, be more.”

  7. “Don’t do anything that you wouldn’t feel comfortable reading about in the newspaper the next day.”

  8. “You must conceive it in your heart and mind before you can receive it.”

  9. “Excuses give us permission to settle for less. Get rid of the excuses—you have the power to overcome anything and be your best.”

  10. “Don’t let negativity in day after day. You need to be around people that motivate you, people that inspire you.”

  11. “Accept the fact that you can’t control everything. The only thing you can control 100% of the time is your attitude.”

  12. “You must make a decision that you are going to move on. It wont happen automatically. You will have to rise up and say, ‘I don’t care how hard this is, I don’t care how disappointed I am, I’m not going to let this get the best of me. I’m moving on with my life.”

  13. “No matter how many times you get knocked down, keep getting back up. God sees your resolve. He sees your determination. And when you do everything you can do, that’s when God will step in and do what you can’t do.”

  14. “Quit worrying about how everything is going to turn out. Live one day at a time; better yet, make the most of this moment. It’s good to have a big – picture outlook, to set goals, to establish budgets and make plans, but if you’re always living in the future, you’re never really enjoying the present in the way God wants you to.”

  15. “Don’t just accept whatever comes your way in life. You were born to win; you were born for greatness; you were created to be a champion in life.”
