“Don’t wait for extraordinary opportunities.  Seize common occasions and make them great.”    (Orison Swett Marden)



“The most successful people are those who don’t have any illusions about who they are.  They know themselves well and they can move in the direction of their best talents.  They know the kind of culture they thrive in and how they can benefit from that culture.

“It is not your aptitude, but your attitude, that determines your altitude.”    (Zig Ziglar)
