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.
Your coworkers will relate to you and respect you more when you don’t hold your personality back. Don't let your buttoned-up facade override your vulnerability.
Asking for things we feel unqualified or unprepared for is understandably risky and scary, but if we tell ourselves no, we will never get to hear a yes.
Money motivates neither the best people, nor the best in people. It can move the body and influence the mind, but it cannot touch the heart or move the spirit; that is reserved for belief, principle, and morality.
The problem is never how to get new, innovative thoughts into your mind, but how to get old ones out.
To be what we are, and to become what we are capable of becoming, is the only end in life.

Robert Louis Stevenson

Always be a first-rate version of yourself and not a second-rate version of someone else.

Judy Garland

Effective leadership is not about making speeches or being liked; leadership is defined by results not attributes.

Peter Drucker

None is more impoverished than the one who has no gratitude. Gratitude is a currency that we can mint for ourselves, and spend without fear of bankruptcy.

Fred De Witt Van Amburgh

The way to develop the best that is in a person is by appreciation and encouragement.

Charles Schwab

Leadership defines what the future should look like, aligns people with that vision, and inspires them to make it happen, despite the obstacles.

Learn to be thankful for what you already have, while you pursue all that you want.

Jim Rohn

Leadership: The capacity and will to rally people to a common purpose together with the character that inspires confidence and trust.

Bernard Montgomery

Gratitude is the healthiest of all human emotions. The more you express gratitude for what you have, the more likely you will have even more to express gratitude for.

Zig Ziglar

If you think dealing with issues like worthiness and authenticity and vulnerability are not worthwhile because there are more pressing issues, like the bottom line or attendance or standardized test scores, you are sadly, sadly mistaken.

Brene Brown

The art of leadership is saying no, not to say yes. It's very easy to say yes.

Tony Blair

A great person attracts great people and knows how to hold them together.

Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

Some people grumble that roses have thorns; I am grateful that thorns have roses.

Jean-Baptiste Alphonse Karr

The task of leadership is not to put greatness into people, but to elicit it, for the greatness is already there.

John Buchan

Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important than one's fear.

James Neil Hollingworth

I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought, and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder

Gilbert K. Chesterton

Leadership is only a means, to what end is the real question.

Peter Drucker

He who has a why to live for can bear almost any how.

Viktor Frankl

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

Mother Theresa

Arriving at one goal is the starting point of another.

John Dewey

We measure success by the way we touch the lives of people.

Bob Chapman

Success is best when it's shared.

Howard Schultz

The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it.

Steve Jobs

Authenticity is about being true to who you are, even when everyone around you wants you to be someone else.

Michael Jordan

Dreams don't come true just because you dream them. It's hard work that makes things happen. It's hard work that creates change.

Shonda Rhimes

The more you can be authentic, the happier you're going to be, and life will work itself around that.

Melinda Gates

Leadership is a series of behaviors rather than a role for heroes.

Margaret Wheatley
