FIND a WAY to WIN at something EVERY DAY

It doesn’t have to be big. Some of the best days are made up of one or more small victories. Those incremental wins add up to meaningful change over time.
Judge nothing, you will be happy. Forgive everything, you will be happier. Love everything, you will be happiest.

Sri Chinmoy

Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.

Dedicate yourself to a core set of values. Without them, you will never be able to find personal fulfillment, and you will never be able to lead effectively.

You are your own teacher. Investigate yourself to find the truth – inside, not outside. Knowing yourself is most important.

Ajahn Chah

How I have lived out my fight has evolved over time, because I have grown as a person and as a leader and because my roles and responsibilities have changed.

Jim Collins

When you’re not feeding your purpose, work feels like work. When you’re inspired, that’s where you get your energy.

Anne M. Mulcahy

The key is not to prioritize what's on your schedule, but to schedule your priorities.

Stephen Covey

Never worry about numbers. Help one person at a time, and always start with the person nearest you.

Mother Theresa

The coronavirus crisis is a marathon, not a sprint. To be productive for the long term, you’ll need to keep your motivation high. The best way to do that is to reconnect with your “why” frequently.

Michael Hyatt

Owning your own story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it.

Trust rules. To enlist others, you need trust. Build mutual trust; you must trust others too.
