Your Actions

If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.

— John Quincy Adams



As I say yes to life, life says yes to me.





A friend is one that knows you as you are, understands where you have been, accepts what you have become, and still, gently allows you to grow.

— William Shakespeare


If one is lucky, a solitary fantasy can totally transform one million realities.

— Maya Angelou

Clear Strengths

Great leaders are not defined by the absence of weakness, but rather by the presence of clear strengths.

— John Zenger


I forgive myself and set myself free.


Better YES



A speaker started off a seminar by holding up a $20 bill. A crowd of 200 had gathered to hear him speak. He asked, “Who would like this $20 bill?”

200 hands went up. He said, “I am going to give this $20 to one of you but first, let me do this.” He crumpled the bill up. He then asked, “Who still wants it?”

All 200 hands were still raised. “What if I do this?” Then he dropped the bill on the ground and stomped on it with his shoes. He picked it up. The bill was all crumpled and dirty. “Now who still wants it?” All the hands still went up.

Then he said “I have just showed you a very important lesson. No matter what I did to the money, you still wanted it because it did not decrease in value. It was still worth $20.

Many times in our lives, life crumples us and grinds us into the dirt. We make bad decisions or deal with poor circumstances. We feel worthless. But no matter what has happened or what will happen, you will never lose your value. You are special, Don’t ever forget it!



Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: ‘What! You too? I thought I was the only one.

— C.S. Lewis
