#1 bestselling author of The Leader Who Had No Title
Most of the messages and videos I send you are about leadership, elite productivity and bringing on your A-Game for the benefit of the world.
We all have our times in the sun, on the summit and at our best.
But we also have hard times. Times in the valley. Days in the wilderness, when our best laid plans fall apart. And life invites us in an entirely new direction.
To the untrained eye, these are “bad times”. But to the leader–and warrior–these are life’s richest times of growth, opportunity and possibility.
Here are 8 of my favorite quotes to inspire me amid times of deep change and epic uncertainty:
“Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding. Even as the stone of the fruit must break, that its heart may stand in the sun, so must you know pain.” – Kahlil Gibran
“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.” – Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
“Never to suffer would never to have been blessed.” – Edgar Allan Poe
“When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm’s all about.” – Haruki Murakami
“In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer. And that makes me happy. For it says that no matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me, there’s something stronger–something better, pushing right back.” – Albert Camus
“You don’t develop courage by being happy in your relationships every day. You develop it by surviving difficult times and challenging adversity.” – Epicurus
“Every adversity, every failure, every heartache carries with it the seed of an equal or greater benefit.” – Napoleon Hill
“They tried to bury us, but they didn’t know that we were seeds.” – Mexican Proverb
