Leaders and managers are most effective when they are constantly striving to be their best.

A true leader goes beyond the status quo and inspires others to do the same. A true leader doesn’t need to demand respect because others are inspired to follow the leader’s example.

It’s much easier to move forward with your life and your business or career once you accept responsibility for your own situation instead of wasting time blaming circumstances or other people.

Distractions are the doors for procrastination, so do your best to eliminate them.

Your mind and body can feel only what you allow them to feel. If you dwell on the negative and bitter, then those feelings will persist.

You are never too young, too old, or too discouraged to give it a shot. Let your motto be: I will never, never give up.

The real opposite of success is giving up.

Your positive attitude, fresh perspective, dynamic spirit, hard work, and willingness to act are your best tools for overcoming obstacles and realizing your dreams.

Whether you’re hiring people or trying to instill your vision into your current employees, you can’t manage with a plan unless you make use of the talent around you.

What you send out, personally or professionally, will eventually come back to you.
