The price of leadership
is responsibility, and part
of that responsibility is
to stay positive whether
you feel like it or not.
"Some people leave trails of
gloom; others, trails of joy.

Some leave trails of hate
and bitterness; others, trails
of love and harmony.

Some leave trails of cynicism
and pessimism; others, trails
of faith and optimism.

Some leave trails of criticism
and resignation; others trails
of gratitude and hope.

What kind of trails
do you leave?"

If you can think it you
can create it. Every great
skyscraper, bridge or
tunnel or other engineering
feat was first formed in
somebody’s mind.

There are no shortcuts to
greatness...it is built day by
day, year by year, decade
by decade. It is making the
right decisions throughout
the day, every day.

We see things not as
THEY are but as WE are.
If we’re grouchy or
depressed, the rest of the
world seems that way
too, and we misinterpret
remarks or actions.

Be Enterprising

An enterprising person is one who comes across a pile of scrap metal and sees the making of a wonderful sculpture. An enterprising person is one who drives through an old decrepit part of town and sees a new housing development. An enterprising person is one who sees opportunity in all areas of life.

To be enterprising is to keep your eyes open and your mind active. It's to be skilled enough, confident enough, creative enough and disciplined enough to seize opportunities that present themselves…regardless of the economy.

A person with an enterprising attitude says, "Find out what you can before action is taken." Do your homework. Do the research. Be prepared. Be resourceful. Do all you can in preparation of what's to come.

Enterprising people always see the future in the present. Enterprising people always find a way to take advantage of a situation, not be burdened by it. And enterprising people aren't lazy. They don't wait for opportunities to come to them, they go after the opportunities. Enterprise means always finding a way to keep yourself actively working toward your ambition.

Enterprise is two things. The first is creativity. You need creativity to see what's out there and to shape it to your advantage. You need creativity to look at the world a little differently. You need creativity to take a different approach, to be different.

What goes hand-in-hand with the creativity of enterprise is the second requirement: the courage to be creative. You need courage to see things differently, courage to go against the crowd, courage to take a different approach, courage to stand alone if you have to, courage to choose activity over inactivity.

And lastly, being enterprising doesn't just relate to the ability to make money. Being enterprising also means feeling good enough about yourself, having enough self worth to want to seek advantages and opportunities that will make a difference in your future. And by doing so you will increase your confidence, your courage, your creativity and your self-worth—your enterprising nature.

To Your Success,
Jim Rohn

Imagine Life as a Game

30 second speech by Bryan Dyson - Former CEO of Coca Cola

"Imagine life as a game in which you’re juggling some five balls in the air. They are work, family, health, friends & spirit and you’re keeping all of these in the air.

You will soon understand that work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will bounce back. But the other four balls — family, health, friends and spirit — are made of glass.

If you drop one of these; they will be irrevocably scuffed, marked, nicked, damaged or even shattered. They will never be the same. You must understand that and strive for balance in your life."

Value has a value only if its value is valued.
In my world, it's not about who you can step on to get where you want to go.
It's about who you can lift up to get where you want to go.

The most powerful 30 second speech I've ever heard!
We are not defined by our
past; we are prepared by our
past. Nothing can happen
to you; it happens for you.

this world? I would
say it consists of four
simple things —
to live a lot, to love a lot,
to laugh a lot, and from
it all, to learn a lot."
