“A faithful friend is a strong defense. And he that hath found such one hath found a treasure.”
“We all have infinitely more capacity than we believe. We also need to be champions of building capacity in others, including our children, friends, family, co-workers, and employees. No one should be living up to less than their full potential. Start by having high expectations for yourself. As you build your capacity, you will naturally inspire the same behavior in others, multiplying your impact. Remember, great leaders don’t create followers. They create more leaders. Stop underachieving. Hold yourself and others accountable, and commit to living your life to your full potential. It’s time to elevate!” – Robert Glazer
