“Dare to Be Yourself / Be What You Might Have Been”


“When people understand how to understand why things work the way they do, then and only then can they create a unique future for themselves and those they have been given the privilege to serve through leadership.  If you don’t assume responsibility for understanding generative learning, the best you will ever be able to achieve is mediocrity – competitive parity.”   (Bret L. Simmons)



“We cannot become what we need to be by remaining what we are.”     (Max DePree)      



“It is by going down into the abyss that we recover the treasures of life.  Where you stumble, there lies your treasure.”   (Joseph Campbell)



“Your visions will become clear only when you can look into your own heart.  Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.”    (C. G. Jung)



“As long as you look for someone else to validate who you are by seeking their approval, you are setting yourself up for disaster.  You have to be whole and complete in yourself.  No one can give you that. You have to know who you are – what others say is irrelevant.”    (Nic Sheff)



“The highest courage is to dare to be yourself in the face of adversity.  Choosing right over wrong, ethics over convenience, and truth over popularity … these are the choices that measure your life.  Travel the path of integrity without looking back, for there is never a wrong time to do the right thing.”   (Successories)



“It is never too late to be what you might have been.”   (George Eliot)
