Inspirational Quotes & Lessons from Legendary Leaders

Great leaders never stop growing, and what better way is there to learn than through the insight and advice of others?

Here are five of my favorite leadership quotes. These “bite-size nuggets of wisdom” stand on their own merit and don’t need much commentary from me.


LESSON #1: Planning is essential to achieving your goals

“If you don’t know where you’re going, you’ll probably end up somewhere else”

                                                      ~ Yogi Berra

LESSON #2: Build a strong and loyal team; every leader needs one

My model for business is The Beatles. They balanced each other and the total was greater than the sum of the parts. That’s how I see business: great things in business are never done by one person, they’re done by a team of people.” 

                                                      ~ Steve Jobs

LESSON #3: Focus relentlessly on achieving your goals 

“If I stop (for) every barking dog, I’m not going to get to the places I need to go.”

                                                                                   ~ Florence Griffith-Joyner

LESSON #4: Preparation + Proficiency + Perseverance = SUCCESS

“It’s a funny thing, the more I practice the luckier I get.”

                                                               ~ Arnold Palmer

LESSON #5: Cynics simply see problems; leaders solve them

“It is not the critic who counts…the credit belongs to the man in the arena.”

                                                                         ~ Theodore Roosevelt 

These are just a few of the quotes I’ve collected and that have inspired me over the years.  How about you? Do you have any others to add to this list? Let me know!
