Colin R. Davis said "The road to success and the road to failure are almost exactly the same." I agree! I've been down both a few times. Sometimes the scenery looks so similar that you don't even realize that you've taken a wrong turn until it's too late! PAY CLOSE ATTENTION to the signs along the way! There are some things that are obvious, but there are many things on the road to failure that FEEL like success. There are also things on the road to success that FEEL like failure. After much practice, you get better at recognizing the difference earlier, as to avoid the BIG failures! Try to get YOUR practice on smaller projects, then work your way up to bigger things when you're ready!

Dale Carnegie said "You have it easily in your power to increase the sum total of this world's happiness now. How? By giving a few words of sincere appreciation to someone who is lonely or discouraged. Perhaps you will forget tomorrow the kind words you say today, but the recipient may cherish them over a lifetime." I love this. I can attest to the accuracy of this quote too! I've share kind things that were said to me that made a difference in MY life, but I just heard from a young man who was at an event I spoke at around 15 years ago. I was happy to hear some of what I said was taken to heart. It made my day when he quoted what I said all these years later. I had no idea the class was even listening!

Susan B. Anthony said "I think the girl who is able to earn her own living and pay her own way should be as happy as anybody on Earth. The sense of independence and security is very sweet." Nice quote! I think this goes for ANYONE by the way. If you're not currently earning your own living, it should be a goal to find a way to contribute. You'll be amazed what a difference that will make in your life. I remember my first job. I worked for my own dad for a long time before working for anyone else, but my first PAID job was on a farm when I was 12 yrs old. I would shovel pig manure and toss bales. I also had the chance to drive a tractor and a truck. Things I learned that stayed with me forever!

Ralph Nader said "The function of leadership is to produce more leaders, not more followers." I like that. I know there are some people who are not a fam of Ralph Nader, but he has some great quotes! We had another one a while back that was pretty good! I think he's spot on with today's quote. A good leader should STRIVE to help develop more good leaders! Too many times though, it seems like there are people in leadership positions who like to lead but do not want to give others a chance to learn their role. If that's the way you do things, keep this in mind. Someday you will be gone. Then what? Who will keep your dream alive if you never taught anyone else how to run your company?

Today's quote was submitted by Steve

Walt Whitman said "Keep your face always toward the sunshine--and shadows will fall behind you." What a great quote. It kind of has the same feel as “it's always sunny above the clouds” I heard that when I was a little kid and I remember it to this day. I can even remember what the guy who said it looked like. Isn't that cool, how a comment made by a stranger can stay with you for almost half a century. It could have been a harsh comment. I'll bet we all remember those too. When you have the chance, be positive and help someone else have a better day. Who knows, it might stay with them for many years to come. Like Walt Whitman said, keep your face towards the sunshine!
