Actions might speak louder than words, but words are the best way to drive better actions.
Just because you have authority doesn’t mean you are a leader.
Being the leader doesn’t give you the permission to be a bully. Respect and inspiration work better than fear and chaos.
Leadership is you helping everyone else get across the finish line ahead of you.
If you have to tell people that you’re the one in charge, you’re probably not.
Blaming others won’t ever change your circumstances for the better. It just guarantees you an ugly future.
Doing is impossible without trying.
Nothing works better to keep you inspired than being dissatisfied with where you are in life.
Go the extra mile. Then go a thousand more. No warrior ever conquered just doing the bare minimum.
Don’t ask your team to follow the rules. Tell them to be amazing. And expect it.
To lead others you must first lead yourself.
Nothing that you’re “supposed to do” will ever make you awesome. It will just keep you being ordinary.
We don’t need more leaders. We need more motivators.
If you want to be lucky, work harder than everyone else around you.
Being an effective leader means you don’t let the fear of being lonely stop you from pushing ahead. Amazing doesn’t stay lonely for long.
There usually is no easy way out for big problems, but there is always a way out.
Being a jerk doesn’t make you a better business person. It just makes you a jerk.
It doesn’t matter until it does. Make sure you’re paying attention to the details along the way.
(4) ways to be amazing:
1. Love the unlovable.
2. Laugh when it hurts.
3. Lead when it’s hard.
4. Live dangerously.
You don’t get a third chance at second impressions. You’re not a con man, so stop acting like one.
Sometimes doing what’s right isn’t much fun right now. It’s still the right thing to do though.
Just because you’re loud doesn’t mean you’re right.
Just because you have authority doesn’t mean that you’re a leader.
Leading doesn’t give you permission to be a bully or a jerk.
You’ll never get in trouble by taking too much responsibility for your life. Excuses just make you weak. Expect that you’re strong enough to achieve the wild dreams you want for yourself.
Success comes down to the little things — beliefs, courage, and a relentless pursuit of your dreams.
What you think about the most you eventually do. Winners make time to think beyond the stress they are facing right now.
Be vulnerable. Be fearless. Bleed. Fight. Lead.
The most inspiring words you will ever speak aren’t words at all. They’re actions.
You can’t change the world without polarizing people. Some of them won’t like you.
Despite your genius, things go wrong — sometimes horribly, frightfully wrong.
Follow your heart. Avoid the crowd. Believe your dreams are worth all the effort.
