- “Many did not realize until the end that happiness was a choice.”
- “If we’re going to get happy, we have to have new patterns of thinking and focusing tools that get us there.”
- “If we can get the future and the past in alignment that allows the present moment to serve us.”
- “Happiness is more of an internal game and achievement is more of an external game.”
- “The harsh reality is that happiness will lead to more achievement but rarely does more achievement lead to happiness.”
- “The happiest among us have learned to stop worrying about the things that we can’t control.”
- “We might as well not argue with reality and know that transformational leadership where people feel empowered and their work has meaning is the only winnable game currently.”
