“The best way to get a good idea is to get a lot of ideas.”
“Two things are required to pursue your dreams: hustle and willingness to put yourself out there! The two things people are most afraid of are fear of failure and fear of being embarrassed.

“What lights you up? Inspires you? Energizes you? When do you find yourself losing track of time because you are so absorbed in an activity and can’t wait to get back to it and do it again? What would you love to do even if you didn’t get paid to do it?
Fast-forward to your golden years. What might you wish you had done more of? Now take a moment to compare your lists. What common themes do you see in your answers? What words get repeated? What activities keep getting mentioned? What threads are woven consistently throughout your story?
Summarize the patterns you see by circling common words or writing a few summary sentences below both lists.”
“When you look in the mirror, you should at least be proud that you gave your all on the field no matter what the critics may say. Be true to you.”
The Mask of Masculinity Quotes
“If you think about it, men who come of age without being nurtured and without learning how to nurture themselves have a hole they carry around.
Some people fill this hole with drugs or alcohol; others fill it with violence. But it gets filled, one way or another.”
“In 10 years, nobody’s going to care. Nobody’ll even remember my name. But they’ll remember if I impact their life. That’s why I’m retiring from the National Football League. I want to have a legacy. I want to have an impact.”
“Masculinity is not about being the biggest, the fastest, the strongest, the one who sleeps with the most girls, and the one who has the most money. The one who has the most accomplishments is not the most masculine.
In fact, it is often the men who covet these things most who are covering and compensating for the greatest insecurities. Let us revere the one who loves others deeply, loves himself deeply, and has a dream that he is inspired to live with and by and through. He is a man.
He does not stand unmoved or untouched in the face of truly moving experiences. He does not judge the totality of his life or anyone else’s life by the totals on the scoreboard as the clock ticks down to zero. He does not use money as a proxy for emotional connection nor material possessions as the measure of his self-worth.
He does not define his manhood by the number of women he has conquered. He does not always fight fire with fire; sometimes he doesn’t need to fight at all. He does not meet seriousness with silliness when it is seriousness that is required.
He does not take risks for risks’ sake, because he does not hide from his frailty, his mortality, or his humanity. He does not pretend to know everything about anything, nor is he afraid to admit when he knows nothing about something. And perhaps most important of all, he does not walk around thinking he’s The Man.
No, the masculine man goes through a journey, a process of self-discovery, and figures out what he needs to do to acquire the tools, knowledge, wisdom, grace, love, passion, and joy to pursue his destiny.
His destiny is his dreams. Those may evolve over time, but in their pursuit, he is not breaking down anyone else or hurting anyone else. He is not at war with other people, conquering them.
He is the one joining forces, searching for the win-win. He is the one who is lifting others up, inspiring others through his journey and his own process (in which he is finding ways to create value along the way). He is the hero of his own journey.
And in so being, he is looking for every way to have the best relationships possible with his family, friends, his romantic partner, his colleagues, or his customers. He’s finding ways to be the best possible version of himself.
Masculinity is about discovering yourself and owning what you find. It’s about being kind to others, and pursuing your dreams with all the passion and energy you can muster. It’s about doing something that is meaningful to you that brings value to others. That’s how you build a legacy.”
The School of Greatness Quotes
“A powerful vision emerges when we couple our dreams with a set of clear goals.”
“Do not despise the bottom rungs in the ascent to greatness.”
“Everyone fails. Highly successful people fail many more times than the rest of the world and with much higher stakes at hand.”
“Greatness is the result of visionaries who persevere, focus, believe, and prepare. It is a habit, not a birthright.”
“Greatness means having pride in yourself, being happy with yourself, knowing you’ve worked for something and couldn’t have done anything more. That is greatness itself.
It is cultivating the character and habits that not only lead to success but also help you overcome any challenge or adversity.”

“If you don’t give yourself a moment to visualize the clear results you want to create, then you are less likely to achieve what you desire.”
