***

As you reflect back over your life, ask this powerful question: “Could i have done more?” If yes, do more now. Too many people die at 30 and are buried at 80

What makes genius isn’t just the big idea but the brilliant execution to advance it

A key trait of greatness is to never lose your lust for learning.

You can’t create an outer life that’s more excellent than the quality of your inner life – outer leadership begins with self-leadership. Life doesn’t give you what you want – life gives you who you are. For things to change, we must change. for our lives to become exceptional, we must first become exceptional. The starting point of it all: to change the world, transform yourself.

What would do today if you had a deep knowing that it was impossible to fail? A secret of greatness is to do the things that make you feel uncomfortable and play out on the jagged edges of your life. If you’re not really growing, you’re not truly living.

Winston Churchill said “The price of greatness is responsibility.” Either you set your goals and, in doing so, have your life governed by choice or you do nothing and have your life governed by chance. You can live your life by chance or by choice. It’s really up to you.

Lead without a title. Leadership isn’t about the size of your position. Real leadership is about the depth of your commitment. Your job as a Leader Without a Title? To stay “couraged” in a world that dis-courages you from being awesome

Life’s greatest longing is for the fullest expression of your best self. Aim for brilliance. If you miss, at least you’ll end up at excellence.

Goals matter. They are your hopes seeking expression. And without hope, life is dead.

Life is fair. The amount of wealth you experience will be a function of how much value you create for others. What a great paradox: the more you share your talents and gifts with others, the bigger the gift you give yourself

The heart knows what the mind cannot understand [trust your gut]

Treat everyone you meet as if they might die tomorrow.

Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to a greater understanding of ourselves. – Carl Jung

Most human beings have an almost infinite capacity for taking things for granted. – Aldous Huxley

“If you think you’re too small to have an impact, try going to bed with a mosquito.” – Anita Roddick, founder, The Body Shop”

A public-opinion poll is no substitute for thought.” – Warren Buffett
