Some suggestions for you :

The dreams and passions stored within hearts are powerful keys which can unlock a wealth of potential.

Great leaders always seem to embody two seemingly disparate qualities. They are both highly visionary and highly practical.

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.

A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way.

The best leaders are readers of people. They have the intuitive ability to understand others by discerning how they feel and recognizing what they sense.

All of the people in my life whom I consider to be close friends or colleagues are good thinkers.

Learn to say 'no' to the good so you can say 'yes' to the best.

To remain a credible leader, I must always work first, hardest, and longest on changing myself. This is neither easy nor natural, but it is essential.

If you want to reach the top, don't run over others. Likely, the only way you'll reach the top is to be carried there by others.

Dreams don't work unless you do.

Everything you now do is something you have chosen to do. Some people don't want to believe that. But if you're over age twenty-one, your life is what you're making of it. To change your life, you need to change your priorities.

The depth of your mythology is the extent of your effectiveness.

Teamwork makes the dream work.

I vividly remember a conversation I had many years ago in 1974, which marked a turning point in my leadership journey. I was sitting at a Holiday Inn with my friend, Kurt Campmeyer, when he asked me if I had a personal growth plan. I didn't. In fact, I didn't even know you were supposed to have one.
