By Successful Leaders


“There is great comfort and inspiration in the feeling of close human relationships and its bearing on our mutual fortunes – a powerful force, to overcome the “tough breaks” which are certain to come to most of us from time to time.  All our dreams can come true – if we have the courage to pursue them.”

                                                               Walt Disney



“The average person puts in only 25% of his energy and ability into his work.  The world takes of its hat to those who put in more than 50% of their capacity, and stands on its head for those few and far between souls who devote 100%.  As I grow older I pay less attention to what men say, I just watch what they do.”

                                                              Andrew Carnegie



“I don’t know what your destiny will be, but one thing I know; the only ones among you who will be really happy are those who

will have sought and found how to serve.”

                                                               Albert Schweitzer



“Think enthusiastically about everything; but especially your job.  If you do so, you’ll put a touch of glory in your life.  If you love your job with enthusiasm you’ll shake it to pieces.  Never mention the worst.  Never think of it.  Drop it out of your consciousness.

 We tend to get what we expect.”

                                                         Norman Vincent Peale




“The man who goes the farthest is generally the one who is willing to do and dare.  The sure thing boat never gets far from shore.  You can make more friends in two months by becoming interested in other people than you can in two years by trying to get other

 people interested in you.”

                                                              Dale Carnegie


“A hundred times a day I remind myself that my life depends on the labors of other men, living and dead, and that I must exert myself in order to give, in the measure as I have received, and am still

receiving.  Try not to become a man of success but rather try

to become a man of value.”

                                                               Albert Einstein


“Be more concerned with your character than with your reputation.  Your character is what you really are while your reputation is merely what others think you are.   Don’t measure yourself by what you have accomplished, but by what you should have accomplished

with your ability.”

                                                              John Wooden


“It’s a matter of having principles.  It’s easy to have principals when you’re rich.  The important thing is to have principals when you’re poor.  The quality of an individual is reflected in the standards

 they set for themselves.”

                                                               Ray Kroc


“On the three types of individuals who play the game: First, there are those who are winners and know they are winners.  Then there are the losers who know they are losers.  Then there are those who are winners but don’t know it.  They’re the ones for me.  They never quit trying.  They’re the soul of the game.”

                                                          Paul Bear Bryant
