By    |   Friday, 08 May 2015 07:50 PM

Joel Osteen is one happy guy, which is pretty obvious from the iconic smile on his face in almost every photograph of him.

“My grandmother was so full of joy. I never saw her upset. She constantly had a song of praise coming up out of her heart. She is a big part of who I am today. She's one of the main reasons why I smile practically all the time,” he wrote in The Christian Post.

The televangelist and megachurch pastor of Lakewood Church in Houston is known for his positive sermons and uplifting advice. He has built an empire on his ability to empower his audience with encouragement and optimistic words of God’s promises.

Collected here are some of Osteen’s best and most memorable thoughts on what it takes to achieve your goals:

1. “You have to talk to yourself the right way and believe you are the person for the job.”
To Forbes magazine in a 2014 interview about public speaking

2. “Some people are just raised negative. They don’t think they’re being negative, but they go through life almost expecting not to do well. They’ll show up for a job interview not expecting to get it. I think you have to turn it around. When you get up in front of people, believe that they want to hear you. Act like they like you.”
– To Forbes magazine

3. "If you're not making as much progress as you would like, here's the key: don't lose any ground. Keep a good attitude and do the right thing even when it's hard. When you do that you are passing the test. And God promises you your marked moments are on their way."
To CBS News, on his critics

4. “Get a new perspective. You are full of can-do power. The greatest force in the universe is breathing in your direction. There is no challenge too tough for you, no enemy too big, no sickness too great, and no dream too far off.”
– From his book "Break Out!: 5 Keys to Go Beyond Your Barriers and Live an Extraordinary Life"

5.
"If a door closes, it doesn't mean it's going to be the final door. Stay in faith and don't give up on life after one bad break. Do what you believe God led you to do and trust God to do the rest."
From the "Today" show

6. "When you do what you can do, God will do what you can't do. Keep believing. Keep doing the right thing and I believe God will always direct and guide your steps."
– From "Today," regarding success, Osteen encourages followers to remember that God is ultimately in control

7. “I believe we are supposed to be leaders. That we are supposed to represent Christ. I believe we are supposed to look good and excel at what God called us to do. You have gifts from the inside and you are supposed to excel. …I believe God wants you to prosper in your health, in your family, in your relationships, in your business, and in your career.”
From an interview with Penn Live

8. “You can change your world by changing your words.”
One of Osteen’s most popular quotes

9. “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.”
From a sermon
