“The more you protect yourself from pain, the more you protect yourself from progress/growth. Life isn’t about avoiding the bruises but about collecting the scars to prove you showed up for it” ~Nicky Verd
“The strongest oak of the forest is not the one that is protected from the storm and hidden from the sun. It is the one that stands in the open where it is compelled to struggle for its existence against the winds and rains and the scorching sun” ~Napoleon Hill
“The leaders I met, whatever walk of life they were from, whatever institutions they were presiding over, always referred back to the same failure – something that happened to them that was personally difficult, even traumatic, something that made them feel that desperate sense of hitting rock bottom – as something they thought was almost a necessity. It’s as if at that moment the iron entered their soul and that moment created the resilience that leaders need” ~Warren Bennis
“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not: the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent” ~Calvin Coolidge
