Dare to dream big
“Don’t be afraid to think outside the box. Don’t be afraid to dream big. But remember, that dreams without goals are just dreams. And they ultimately fuel disappointments. Have goals — life goals, yearly goals, monthly goals. Don’t just aspire to make a living; aspire to make a difference.” ~ Actor-Director Denzel Washington
“Great leaders don’t just develop people like them, they develop everyone. If you want to be a great leader, you will develop the women as well as the men at your company and on your teams. “ ~ Facebook COO – Sheryl Sandberg
- Face your fears
“We’re all destined to have to do the thing we fear the most anyway. So, you give your obstacles credit. Find the courage to overcome them or see clearly that they are not really worth prevailing over. Be brave, have courage. When you do you get stronger, more aware, and more respectful of yourself, and that which you fear.” ~Actor – Matthew McConaughey
- Make it count
“Choose a direction and if the road turns — turn! If there is a fork in the road — take it! It’s ok to map out your future — but do it in pencil. Let’s make today and every day that follows about more than your own accomplishment. Make it about the power of WE! Because, if you do, you’ll have a lot more than things worth having— you’ll have a life worth living.” ~Musician – Jon Bon Jovi
- Acknowledge your limitations
“Fear protects us in many ways, but what has served me is diving into my own obliviousness. Being more confident than I should be… trying things that you never would have tried. Your inexperience is an asset in that it will make you think in original, unconventional ways. Accept your lack of knowledge and use it as your asset.” ~Actor – Natalie Portman
- Don’t let others define who you are
“As you go out in the world, you’ll find that people are always quick to define you, to pigeonhole you, to whittle you down to their preconceived notions — which brings me to my point: Never let others define you. Define yourselves.” ~Actor – Ed Helms
- Discover your true calling
“Engage in some real soul searching. Take a good, hard look at your strengths and weaknesses. A fulfilling professional life can be found at the intersection of what you love and what you’re good at. And when you think you’ve discovered it, go at it full throttle.” ~Journalist – Katie Couric
- Compete with yourself
“Did you dream big? Did you set high standards, ever rising? Were you your own role model?” ~American statesman – Colin Powell
- Don’t settle for Normal
“There’s no such thing as ‘normal’. That’s just another word for lifeless, define your own way of living the only life you have. All the most beautiful people in the world, the most creative, the ones who led revolutions, who discovered and invented things, did so because they embraced their own idiosyncrasies.” ~Actor – Shah Rukh Khan
- Love your parents
“Your parents and loved ones are your biggest advocates and best advisors. Don’t ever take them for granted. The most important lessons don’t always come from the person standing in front of you; it’s the people sitting behind you.” ~Pepsi Co chairman – Indra Nooyi
