Remember, we see the world not as it is but as we are. Most of us see through the eyes of our fears and our limiting beliefs and our false assumptions.
Leadership and greatness comes to those who follow-through. Who stand for near-flawless execution.
The brighter the fire in your belly to achieve something special, the more hurts you'll have.
No one wants to fail. So most of us don't even try. Sad. We don't even take that first step to improve our health or to deepen our working relationships or to realize a dream.
I believe we can accelerate our acumen, performance and success by leveraging our associations and spending time with people better than us.
The humblest is the greatest. To display humility isn't weak. It's strong and sure and brave.
No matter how busy I get or how much pressure is on my shoulders, a good workout makes me feel at ease. I come off the treadmill feeling relaxed, full of joy and with a sense of perspective over the issues on my plate.
I'm an evangelist for the idea of being ultrafit if you want to be the best of breed. Getting into world-class physical condition is one of the smartest moves you can make.
Just imagine how fast, innovative and excellent your business will be once every single teammate - from the janitor to the executive - begins to see themselves as the CEO of their own area of responsibility.
The people you can't stand can actually transform your life. And help you become happier, healthier, and more successful.
I wish for a world where people understand that life is short. So today's the time to do big things.
Every one of us wakes up in the morning, walks out into the world, and does the best we can do based on what we know and the skills we have.
People fear leaving their safe harbor of the known and venturing off into the unknown. Human beings crave certainty - even when it limits them.
We have a normal. As you move outside of your comfort zone, what was once the unknown and frightening becomes your new normal.
Difficult times disrupt your conventional ways of thinking and push you to forge better habits of thought, performance and being.
Better to be an optimist who gets disappointed than a pessimist who has no hope.
One of my weaknesses is impatience. I just have this aching need to get great things done. Can't stand slow change.
Everyone is influencing the people around them one way or another.
I'd done all the things I thought a person had to do in order to be successful and fulfilled, like getting a great education and becoming a lawyer, and yet there was zero spark in my life. But there was no light-bulb moment. It was gradual. In the early 1990s, I decided to experiment and try some new ways of living.
I believe it's strikingly important to remember that when you know better, you can do better. With higher levels of awareness, you can make smarter choices. And the more clarity you get as to who you want to become, the quicker you can start making the choices need to get you there.
So many amongst us live in the past rather than loving the present and building a brilliant future. Some people stay stuck for years over something they did or a failure they've experienced. Sad. A life is a terrible thing to waste.
Three hours of focused time on the projects that will really add value and uplift your career are so much better than 10 hours where you are constantly being interrupted and taken off your focus.

Being productive at your craft is important. Being productive in your devotion to grow as a human is essential.
The relationship that tests/frustrates/irritates you the most actually is one of your greatest blessings. Why? Because it reveals to you the very beliefs/fears and false assumptions that most limit you.
The difference between a remarkable life and a mediocre one is not nearly as large as you might imagine. Nope, we all pretty much start out with the same raw stuff.
The world needs many more dreamers. Unreasonable souls who fight the urge to be ordinary.
To get to world-class, don't miss any opportunity to leverage the learning/insights/experiences of the people you meet. Because we really do become our conversations.
Top athletes understand that to play at their best, they must alternate periods of intense performance with periods of strategic renewal.
People want to be a part of an organization that lets them be fully alive and bring their gifts to work. People really do want to be engaged and feel proud of their contribution.
You can inspire the world. Or you can be liked by all. You don't get to do both.
I wish for a world where success is measured not by what we take nor by what we get. Just by what we give. And who we become.
Leave your ego at the door every morning, and just do some truly great work. Few things will make you feel better than a job brilliantly done.
I get so many big ideas while I'm running and such clarity while I'm lifting weights. And staying fit keeps me happy and positive.
You're stronger than you know. You're braver than you've been told. You're greater than you'll ever imagine.
