  • You will never have all the information to make a decision. If you did it would be a forgone conclusion, not a decision.
  • A great leader’s courage to fulfill his vision comes from passion not position.
  • Life is not a dress rehearsal!
  • Life is about adventure not maintenance.
  • The entire population of the world – with one minor exception – is composed of others.
  • If you could see yourself in terms of your true potential, you wouldn’t recognize yourself.
  • As a leader you should always challenge people to move out of their comfort zone but never out of their strength zone.
  • If you want people to be impressed talk about your successes, if you want people to identify with you talk about your failures.
  • A procrastinator puts off until tomorrow the things he has already put off until today.
  • Your attitude is either your best friend or your worst enemy, your greatest asset or your greatest liability.
  • Leadership by definition cannot be a one man show.
  • You will acquire the vices & virtues of your closest associates. The fragrance of their lives will pervade your life.
  • In the end, people are persuaded not by what we say, but by what they understand.
  • Connecting is never about me. It’s about the person with whom I am communicating.

The greatest mistake we make is living in constant fear that we will make one.
