Some of these are my own and others are from other inspirational people. Either way, the end goal here is to encourage you in your leadership.

Here we go:

  2. Here’s one by Nelson Mandela. "It always seems impossible until it's done.
  3. Inspiration is the spark for your adventure, but it's passion for the cause that keeps you committed.
  4. If your personal mission is about reaching others, you're headed in the right direction. If it's only about you, it's time to adjust course.
  5. Building relationships is the most important thing you can do in your life. Your true net worth is in your network of healthy relationships.
  6. A quote by Jim Collins, “Greatness is not a function of circumstance. Greatness, it turns out, is largely a matter of conscious choice, and discipline.”
