A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way.
People may hear your words, but they feel your attitude.
A man must be big enough to admit his mistakes, smart enough to profit from them, and strong enough to correct them.
There are two kinds of pride, both good and bad. 'Good pride' represents our dignity and self-respect. 'Bad pride' is the deadly sin of superiority that reeks of conceit and arrogance.
Learn to say 'no' to the good so you can say 'yes' to the best.
Teamwork makes the dream work, but a vision becomes a nightmare when the leader has a big dream and a bad team.
The greatest day in your life and mine is when we take total responsibility for our attitudes. That's the day we truly grow up.
Failed plans should not be interpreted as a failed vision. Visions don't change, they are only refined. Plans rarely stay the same, and are scrapped or adjusted as needed. Be stubborn about the vision, but flexible with your plan.
A word of encouragement from a teacher to a child can change a life. A word of encouragement from a spouse can save a marriage. A word of encouragement from a leader can inspire a person to reach her potential.
Time management is an oxymoron. Time is beyond our control, and the clock keeps ticking regardless of how we lead our lives. Priority management is the answer to maximizing the time we have.
Good leaders must communicate vision clearly, creatively, and continually. However, the vision doesn't come alive until the leader models it.
The difference between average people and achieving people is their perception of and response to failure.
Growth demands a temporary surrender of security. It may mean giving up familiar but limiting patterns, safe but unrewarding work, values no longer believed in, and relationships that have lost their meaning.
The best way a mentor can prepare another leader is to expose him or her to other great people.
In the end, people are persuaded not by what we say, but by what they understand.
