    My mom always said, “Don’t sit around waiting for your ship to come in. Swim out and meet it.” I’ve tried to do that and believe that some of my ships would have been completely missed if I hadn’t done my part.

  6. These are great Jay. We have so many wonderful quotes that fuel our days and it would be hard to single out just one. Perhaps one we try to apply most is the Golden Rule: Treat others how you want to be treated. The Golden Rule goes beyond just treating others the way you would want to be treated. It’s a journey into the way you think of, feel about and speak to others, as well.

  14. These are good quotes! It’s hard to pick a favorite quote but one of my favorites is, “Perpetual optimism is a force multiplier.” Gen. Colin Powell. I first ran across this during my first year of military duty and I had to kinda meditate on it before I understood it lol. After I got it I would write it down and posted it everywhere! To me it speaks volumes to the power of a positive attitude. Thanks for sharing!

    Quote number four really stands out to me. I’m the type of person that tries to squeeze as much out of a small amount of time as I can. I’m a big fan of the four hour workday and incorporate that in my business.
