2. People generally fall into one of three groups: the few who make things happen, the many who watch things happen, and the overwhelming majority who have no notion of what happens. Every person is either a creator of fact or a creature of circumstance. He either puts color into his environment, or, like a chameleon, takes color from his environment.
3. If you have hope for the future you have true riches; no matter how much you have in your account.
4. The poorest person in the world is the person without a dream.
5. Purpose is when you know and understand what you were born to accomplish. Vision is when you see it in your mind and begin to imagine it.
6. Great leaders have no need for reputation. Reputation is what you are in public; character is who you are in private.
7. We are a sum total of what we have learned from all who have taught us, both great and small.
8. Don’t ever make the mistake of telling God that you have nothing to offer. That simply is not true. God does not create any junk.
9. A true leader does not measure his success by comparing himself to others but by evaluating how he is fulfilling his own purpose and vision.
10. The greatest tragedy in life is not death, but life without a purpose.
11. God did not create woman from man’s head, that he should command her, nor from his feet, that she should be his slave, but rather from his side, that she should be near his heart.
12. Success is not a comparison of what we have done with what others have done.
13. We are a sum total of what we have learned from all who have taught us, both great and small.
14. Circumstances and crises are God’s tools to move you into your purpose and the maximizing of your potential.
15. If you don’t attempt things, you don’t attract God.
