If you have been following this blog at all you know I love to read and love quotes. Recently I read John Maxwell's Talent Is Never Enough. "Key choices you make, along with talent you have will set you apart from those who have talent only. Destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice, it is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved."
"Intelligence, imagination and knowledge are essential resources but only effectiveness converts them into results."
"Your potential is a picture of what you can become, believe and you can see and reach it. Only with belief in oneself will anyone ever reach their potential. There are two types of people in this world; those who want to get things done and those who don't want to make mistakes. Which are you?"
Stephen King, "Talent is cheaper than table salt. What separates the talented individual from the successful one is a lot of hard work.
