“If the path before you is clear, it is probably someone else’s.”

You will find that decisions are liberating.

The paradox is that some of the most stressed people on the planet are people who are frozen by indecision.
There is a tremendous energy and peace that decision making brings.

Your team is energized by a leader who can make the call as well. Can you even envision a scene in Braveheart where William Wallace would stand in front of his ragtag band of brothers and wring his hands indecisively, pacing back and forth, worried if he should attack or not? Can you imagine the fear that his troops would feel, and can you imagine them becoming afraid because their leader was indecisive?

-Dave Ramsey from EntreLeadership

“Find a place inside where there’s joy, and the joy will burn out the pain.”

My Cathedral

by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Like two cathedral towers these stately pines
Uplift their fretted summits tipped with cones;
The arch beneath them is not built with stones,
Not Art but Nature traced these lovely lines,
And carved this graceful arabesque of vines;
No organ but the wind here sighs and moans,
No sepulchre conceals a martyr’s bones.
No marble bishop on his tomb reclines.
Enter! the pavement, carpeted with leaves,
Gives back a softened echo to thy tread!
Listen! the choir is singing; all the birds,
In leafy galleries beneath the eaves,
Are singing! listen, ere the sound be fled,
And learn there may be worship with out words.

“This world is but a canvas to our imagination.”

– Henry David Thoreau

“Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear—not absence of fear.”

– Mark Twain
