“We must use time as a tool, not as a couch.” – John F. Kennedy

Time should be used to work for you. Either you’re using time to get things done, or you are using time to wait for things to develop. Time is a great tool when used effectively, but as it is said here, it is not best to us it as a couch.

“Not knowing you can’t do something, is sometimes all it takes to do it.” ~ Ally Carter

It’s funny to think that you may accomplish things without even knowing that you couldn’t do it. It’s kind of like the placebo effect, but in reverse. If someone would have told you you couldn’t do it, maybe you wouldn’t have been able to do it. Think of all of the things you think you can’t do, and question why you think you can’t do them. Can you not do them because you know you can’t, or because you tried them and were not successful? It may be time to try things you once thought you couldn’t do.

“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”- Dr. Seuss

Leaders are readers, no doubt about that. Reading helps you learn about whatever it is you want to know about. You can study up on an exotic travel destination, or a new method of doing business. There will always be those willing to share their knowledge with you, and this gives you a jump on the situation so you can have as much information as possible. Reading and learning really are the ticket to getting around the globe.

“In the middle of every difficulty lies opportunity.” – Albert Einstein

If anyone knows about this, it’s Albert. Every single challenge you face has something in it that is of value to you, should you choose to see it. It goes along with the saying about every cloud having a silver lining. Learn and grow from your troubles and you will only be empowered because of it.

“Hard work without talent is a shame, but a talent without hard work is a tragedy” – Robert Half

Some people work hard but have no talent and other people have talent but do not work hard. These are both sad situations, but the person who realizes their talent and doesn’t work to maximize it is a very sad and discouraging sight.

“Let borders become sunlight so we traverse this Earth as one nation.” – Kamand Kojouri

We must all stop separating ourselves into categories of nationalities and political parties. These ideologies separate us and cause us to only communicate and socialize with the ones who hold our same beliefs. We have to broaden our scope and accept everyone even if they are different.

“The way you think, the way you behave, the way you eat, can influence your life by 30 to 50 years.” – Deepak Chopra

This seems to contradict the whole living in the moment thing. It’s the exact opposite. Every moment is incredibly important. You must be mindful and maintain positive energy in all encounters. Each step you take can take you farther on the path. Each misstep can get you off course.

“Either you run the day, or the day runs you.”

Either you take charge of the day and do what you want to do or you listen to other people and do work to further them. Stop living your life based on the ideas of other people. Start to take charge of the day and use every minute to better yourself.

“If you want to make beautiful music, you must play the black and the white notes together.” – Richard Nixon

To make beautiful music, you have to play all the chords. In relation to everyday life, to make the world a better place, you have to respect everyone, no matter what they look like. The color of our skin does not determine our fate on this earth. The color of our skin does not mean we are inferior or superior to another being.
