Jason Navallo interviews various industry leaders for his book American Dream. My favorite quotes from the book are:
I believe luck is a big factor and rarely acknowledged to the extent it should be. I’ve also encountered a lot of people who were born on third base, and they believe they’ve hit a home run. – Peter Mallouk
Purpose enables us to see adversity as a learning opportunity rather than a loss. – Ben Caballero
Serve with passion. Do the right thing. Do what you say you’re going to do. And make it great. – Shelly Sun
Treat people with respect, regardless of their position. – Scott Gerber
The most common mistake entrepreneurs make is expecting success to be a given or to happen overnight. Setting achievable goals and continually reevaluating and setting new ones, once those are met, is very important when starting and building a new business. – Liz Elting
Not until we are lost do we begin to understand ourselves. – Henry David Thoreau
People take different roads seeking fulfillment and happiness. Just because they’re not on your road doesn’t mean they’ve gotten lost. – H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body. – Joseph Addison
He that loves reading has everything within his reach. – William Godwin
The reading of all good books is like a conversation with the finest minds of past centuries. – Rene Descartes
My friend needed her Nissan Rouge hauled from Indiana back to Alabama.
I have a Jeep with an 8 cylinder, 5.7 liter engine, and a tow/haul package. I also love road trips, so I volunteered.
As I was preparing for the trip, people kept asking me questions like:
“Do you know how to load a car onto a car dolly?”
I have no clue.
“Have you ever hauled anything before?”
No, this will be my first hauling experience. Basically, I have no idea what I am doing. However, I do have a can-do-attitude and I will get this job done. 🙂
I am proud to report, I dropped off the Nissan last night and my trip was successful.
All our dreams can came true, if we have the courage to pursue them. – Walt Disney
Help others achieve their dreams and you will achieve yours. – Les Brown
We all have dreams. But in order to make dreams come into reality, it takes an awful lot of determination, dedication, self-discipline, and effort. – Jesse Owens
