1. “Solid character will reflect itself in consistent behavior, while poor character will seek to hide behind deceptive words and actions.”

2. “The greatest tragedy in life is not death, but a life without a purpose.”  

3. “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.

6. “The wealthiest places in the world are not gold mines, oil fields, diamond mines or banks. The wealthiest place is the cemetery. There lies companies that were never started, masterpieces that were never painted… In the cemetery there is buried the greatest treasure of untapped potential. There is a treasure within you that must come out. Don’t go to the grave with your treasure still within YOU.”

7. “Reputation is what others think about you. Character is the truth about you. Reputation is what you are in public. Character is what you are in private.”

8. “We manifest character when self-sacrifice for the sake of our principles becomes more important than compromise for the sake of popularity.”

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. “Learn to recognize and combat the enemies of potential.”

11. “Circumstances and crises are God’s tools to move you into your purpose and the maximizing of your potential.”

12. “The poorest man in the world is a man without a dream.”
