~Aristotle Tells It Like It Is~

April 7, 2010

“I count him braver who overcomes his desires than him who conquers his enemies; for the hardest victory is the victory over self.”

~ Aristotle

What a great and true quote this is. There are many individuals that can run with the best of them. Anything you put in their way, other than their own personal desires, don’t stand a chance. But when they are confronted with a personal obstacle, it stops them in their tracks. It takes practice to understand yourself and time to get things right. When you run into an obstacle, think of it as a way to grow as a person. When you take your obstacles head on, the next time they are not as bad. Focus on the problem at hand and try to separate your emotions.

A Quote In Business To Live By:

March 18, 2010

Minds are like parachutes – they only function when open.

-Thomas Dewar

I think this quote sums up one of the most important quailties that one must have to be successful in business. Having an open mind allows you to be ever-changing in an  ever-changing world. If you imagine a parachute, can you imagine it not being open? The next time you are in a position that you think you are 100% sure of something. Ask yourself, Is my parachute open?
