It was such a pleasure to connect with so many incredible Thought Leaders this past year. From professional sports to charities, automotive to health and fitness… we’ve covered a lot of ground. The value of the insights, experiences and advice that were shared cannot be overstated. Since we can’t fit everything we learned into one post, we’ve decided to take a look back at our 2019 Thought Leaders and highlight their favorite quotes. We’ll also provide a link to each of their original Spotlight posts in case you want to read more.
A big THANK YOU to all of our Thought Leaders for their time and energy sharing their insights with us; we are fortunate and grateful.
“Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and freedom.”
Viktor E. Frankl
“If it’s not a hell yes, it’s a no.”
“The fruit of silence is prayer; the fruit of prayer is faith; the fruit of faith is love; the fruit of love is service; the fruit of service is peace.”
“Virtually nothing is impossible in this world if you just put your mind to it and maintain a positive attitude.”
“Vision without execution is hallucination.”
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
“The only way around is through.”
“I’m a Mog; half man, half dog. I’m my own best friend.”
(I think it’s worth noting that Jeff said he doesn’t have a favorite quote, but this one always makes him laugh.)
“Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.”
Theodor Seuss Geisel
“What lies behind us and what lies before us are small matters compared to what lies within us.”
