Launching 2022

To wrap up 2021 and boost your launch for 2022, I am sharing some leadership quotes I’ve collected over the years.

Many come from a friend and fellow Silver Fox Advisor, Hank Moore. They are featured in his newest book, “The Big Picture of Business,” Book 4, just nominated for the Pulitzer Prize.

Let’s begin

See the value in others that they cannot see in themselves.

When you give, you also get your share.

Self-worth is not equal to or determined by net worth.

Persistence beats resistance.

Footsteps in the sands of time are not made by sitting down.

Choose the road to go where you wish to grow.

Things that were not achievable in early careers are now yours to master.

Opportunities will come your way when you believe they will start happening today.

It’s about time

It’s almost tomorrow. Today will be yesterday tomorrow. The minutes into the future will soon become cherished memories of the past.

Tomorrow might not come when dreamers dream too late.

How can you know what’s possible, until you try.

Use the system for the betterment of society. When a business does the right thing, it’s good for society and for business. Right things matter and payback in goodwill.

Internal strength

Define who you are. Do not let others define you.

Be stronger than your excuses.

May you always be a dreamer. May your brightest dreams come true.

People worry so much about the cost of living. Concern yourself with the value of life.

Ask yourself: what more do you want. You’ve earned it.

Recall and build upon the teachable moments that influenced you.

Hope and influence

Hope for the year: healing, recovery, and valuing each other.

Hope inspires us to do the impossible & carry on during difficult times.

There will be tough times, and they will pass.

Mentoring guides your success.


Effective leaders don’t have to be lonely at the top.

We are all caretakers of something.

Show gratitude often. Notice other people. Reward yourself.

Prepare for and nurture your future.

Serve your community.

It’s about time, place, and attitude.

People who are adaptive and adaptable get further.

Celebrate others. Stand up for others.

Learn the secrets of successful people.

Closing thoughts

The more that we remind others of the worth of life and positive opportunities, we remind ourselves as well.

Reinforce truths every day. Otherwise, vacuums will be filled with lies and misinformation.

Quote from Winston Churchill: “All the great things are simple, and many can be expressed in single words: freedom, justice, honor, duty, mercy, hope.”

Quote from Albert Einstein: “Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is not to stop questioning.”

Quote from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.: “We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.”

Here’s wishing you a joyous and prosperous New Year. As you plan your new year activity and strategic ideas, think about these offerings I’ll be delivering this year.
