Words of Wisdom

You are not the only one

Everybody experiences challenges and successes to some degree. Leadership, friendship, hardship - dark and bright hours - times of mourning and times of celebration. Sometimes it is said so well that you just cannot improve upon it, you just have to enjoy reading it.

Do you know of an inspiring quote you think should be here?

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
— Marianne Williamson

Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.

If you want to be an authentic leader and have a meaningful life, you need to do the difficult inner work to develop yourself, have a strong moral compass based on your beliefs and values, and work on problems that matter to you.

— Bill George, author of Discover Your True North

The challenge of leadership is to be strong, but not rude; be kind, but not weak; be bold, but not bully; be thoughtful, but not lazy; be humble, but not timid; be proud, but not arrogant; have humor, but without folly.
— Jim Rohn

Eighty percent of succes is showing up
— Woody Allen

The great thing in this world is not so much where you stand, as in what direction you are moving
— Oliver Wendell Holmes

If you cannot do great things, do small things in a great way.
— Napoleon Hill

Great things are not accomplished by those who yield to trends and fads and popular opinion.
— Jack Kerouac

There is a great man who makes every man feel small. But the really great man is the man who makes every man feel great.
— G.K. Chesterton
