“Become the kind of leader that people would follow voluntarily; even if you had no title or position.”

Brian Tracy (Motivational speaker & Author, Maximum Achievement)

“A leader has a vision and conviction that a dream can be achieved. He inspires the power and energy to get it done.”

Ralph Lauren (American fashion designer)

“A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way.”

John C. Maxwell, (Author, Developing The Leader Within You)

The idea of being a leader, whether personally or professionally, gives the ego a glossy stroke with all the qualities the term implies.

Leaders are strong, confident, and tenacious.

They inspire others to follow them and develop the same traits.

The leader/follower relationship implies constant growth.

One to pave the way, the others to follow with some assuredness it’s the right direction.

And, if the set goal is achieved, the leader basks in the glory of that success — and rightly so… after all, the leaders take all the risk...

“Not only do you become what you think about, but the world also becomes what you think about. Those who think that the world is a dark place are blind to the light that might illuminate their lives. Those who see the light of the world view the dark spots as merely potential light.”

Wayne W. Dyer (Author, Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Life)

“What I’ve found in my research is that realism and self-honesty are the antidote to ego, hubris, and delusion.”

Ryan Holiday, (Author, Ego Is The Enemy)

“The greatest deception men suffer is from their own opinions.”

Leonardo da Vinci (Italian Artist)

Do you consider yourself a good judge of character?

Your instincts and assessments of others are bang on, right?

In fact, you’re probably really good at taking a critical eye and spotting out people’s weaknesses and knowing exactly what they need to do to change.

Sure… we all are.

Equally, we all tend to suck at turning the magnifying glass around.

“If we are paying attention to our lives, we’ll recognise those defining moments. The challenge for so many of us is that we are so deep into daily distractions and ‘being busy, busy’ that we miss out on those moments and opportunities that — if jumped on — would get our careers and personal lives to a whole new level of wow.”

Robin S. Sharma (Author, The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari)

“It is not enough to be busy. So are the ants. The question is: What are we busy about?”

Henry David Thoreau (American Philosopher)

“Beware the barrenness of a busy life.”

Socrates (Greek Philosopher)

I know.

Just so busy.

Too busy.

Look how important I am — because, I’m so busy.

We’re all busy, but it’s not an achievement we should be bragging about.

The truth is, busy people are distracted, and distracted people get t...

3 Reasons Why A Victim Mentality Will Ruin Your Chance At Success

Published by: Isaiah Hankel

Topics :How To Focus

“To complain is always non-acceptance of what is. It invariably carries an unconscious negative charge. When you complain, you make yourself into a victim. When you speak out, you are in your power. So change the situation by taking action, or by speaking out if necessary or possible; leave the situation, or accept it. All else is madness.”

Eckhart Tolle (Author, The Power Of Now)

“If it’s never our fault, we can’t take responsibility for it. If we can’t take responsibility for it, we’ll always be its victim.”

Richard Bach (Author, Jonathan Livingston Seagull)

“I think it’s unfair, but they have the right as fallible, screwed-up humans to be unfair; that’s the human condition.

Albert Ellis (American Psychologist)

We all know someone who does this.

They play the victim.

All the time.

These are the people that whine about how the world is against them.

All the time.

They have a list of excuses for why they aren’t getting what they want out of life.

And, a longer list of excuses of why they can...

“Health is the greatest gift, contentment the greatest wealth, faithfulness the best relationship.”


“Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present.”

Jim Rohn (Entrepreneur, Author, The Art Of Exceptional Living)

“The business of business is relationships; the business of life is human connection.”

Robin S. Sharma (Canadian Author, The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari)

When it comes to success, there are two very popular philosophies today.

The first philosophy states that you should live a short-term oriented lifestyle, despite the fact that you will likely live a very long time.

As such, you should chase experiences over material possessions, and you should not wait until you retire to start living like you’re retired.

You should rent instead of own, and travel and explore instead of setting down roots.

Living your fullest life in this moment is a way to reward yourself for hard work and keep yo...
