You don't become an effective leader by default.
Connecting is the ability to identify with people and relate to them in a way that increases your influence with them.
You win people's hearts by helping them grow personally.
If everyone doesn't pay the price to win, then everyone will pay the price of losing.
If you are a leader, you should never forget that everyone needs encouragement. And everyone who receives it - young or old, successful or less-than-successful, unknown or famous - is changed by it.
The secret to success can be found in people's daily agendas. If they do something intentional to grow every day, they move closer to reaching their potential. If they don't, their potential slowly slips away over the course of their lifetime.
The dream is free...but the journey will cost you something.
The secret of your success is determined by your daily agenda.
True success is obeying God.
Fail early, fail often, but always fail forward.
If you're lying, you're lying.
Set the tone for your day be treating people better than you expect to be treated by them. Be the first to smile. Express your appreciation for them. Expect the best out of them. If you act first, you will set yourself up for success.
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.
Every time I have had a breakthrough in my life, it has been because of Prayer
It's more important to get along with people than to get ahead of them.
Your attitude is either your best friend or your worst enemy, your greatest asset or your greatest liability
Teams make you better than you are, multiply your value, enable you to do what you do best, allow you to help others do their best, give you more time, provide you with companionship, help you fulfill the desires of your heart and compound your vision and effort.
Leadership deals with people and their dynamics, which are continually changing. The challenge of leadership is to create change and facilitate growth.
You have to know who you are to grow to your potential. But you have to grow in order to know who you are.
Your success stops where your character stops. You can never rise above the limitations of your character.
The secret of successful people lies in their ability to discover their strengths and to organize their life so that these strengths can be applied.
The more credible you are, the more confidence people place in you, thereby allowing you the privilege of influencing their lives.
Confidence is a characteristic of a positive attitude. The greatest achievers and leaders remain confident regardless of circumstances.
Wanting to win isn't enough. You have to go through a process to improve. That takes patience, perseverance, and intentionality.
Might you be missing opportunities because you have been too quick to ask how instead of why?
Failure is an inside job. So is success. If you want to achieve, you have to win the war in your thinking first. You can't let the failure outside you get inside you.
Everyone has the potential to become an encourager. You don't have to be rich. You don't have to be a genius. You don't have to have it all together. All you have to do is care about people and initiate.
The only guarantee for failure is to stop trying
If you want to achieve great things, you need to have a great dream.
Once our minds are 'tattooed' with negative thinking, our chances for long-term success diminish.
