"Teamwork is the ability to work together toward a common vision. The ability to direct individual accomplishment toward organizational objectives. It is the fuel that allows common people to attain uncommon results. When a team of dedicated individuals makes a commitment to act as one...the sky's the limit. Coming together is a beginning... keeping together is progress... working together is a success. Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has. The challenge for every organization is to build a feeling of oneness, of dependence on one another...because the question is usually not how well each person works, but how well they work together. When we stand tall in defense of our principles, the tides of adversity eventually subside. Strength is derived from unity. The range of our collective vision is far greater when individual insights become one. Which all Comes Down to... Teamwork means that we share a common ideal and embrace a common goal. Regardless of our differences, we strive shoulder to shoulder, confident in one another's faith, trust and commitment. In the end, teamwork can be summed up in five short words...
"We believe in each other."

He failed in business in '31. He was defeated for state legislator in '32. He tried another business in '33. It failed. His fiancee died in '35. He had a nervous breakdown in '36. In '43 he ran for congress and was defeated. He tried again in '48 and was defeated again. He tried running for the Senate in '55. He lost The next year he ran for Vice President and lost. In '59 he ran for the Senate again and was defeated. In 1860, the man who signed his name A. Lincoln, was elected the 16th President of the United States... The difference between history's boldest accomplishments, and its most staggering failures is often, simply, the diligent will to persevere. The power to shape the future is earned through persistence. No other quality is as essential to success. It is the sandpaper that breaks down all resistance and sweeps away all obstacles. It is the ability to move mountains one grain of sand at a time. Which all Comes Down to...
In the confrontation between the stream and the rock, the stream always wins...not through strength, but through Persistence."

"The growth of any organization is nurtured one customer at a time. It takes months to find a customer...and seconds to lose one. The sea of change can pull customers in many directions. It is our responsibility to light the way and take care of them... before the competition does. Always give people more than they expect to get. The foundation of any great company is rooted in service. It is the nurturing force which fuels all growth. Which all Comes Down to...
If we don't take care of the customer...somebody else will."

"Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed...every morning a lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest gazelle or it will starve to death. Which all Comes Down to...
On the road to success, you can be sure of one thing...there is never a crowd on the extra mile.

"The best way to predict the to create it. An organization that is committed to creative collaboration will ride the wave of the future. They will go beyond the realm of assumptive thinking and welcome the dawn of innovation...because there is nothing more empowering than an idea whose time has come. Without change there can be no breakthroughs. Without breakthroughs there can be no future. Everything that can be invented already has been. This statement was released in 1899 by the U.S. Patent Office. If these 'experts' ran the world we would still be sitting in the dark. It is our responsibility to shatter outdated thinking and explore the realm of the untested; it is here that breakthrough opportunities are waiting to be discovered. Which all Comes Down to...
If you're not riding the wave of change... you'll find yourself beneath it.

"A ship in the harbor is safe...but that's not what ships were made for. The sea is dangerous and its storms terrible, but these obstacles have never been sufficient reason to remain ashore... unlike the mediocre, intrepid spirits seek victory over those things that seem impossible... it is with an iron will that they embark on the most daring of all endeavors... to meet the shadowy future without fear and conquer the unknown. What we can easily see is only a small percentage of what is possible. Imagination is having the vision to see what is just below the surface; to picture that which is essential, but invisible to the eye. Which all Comes Down to...
Do not follow where the path may lead...go instead where there is no path and leave a trail!"

"True leaders act with courage, stand tall in the face of adversity and go where few have gone before...because they know that example is the greatest school of humanity."

The Nature of Leadership: "You will find true success in those efforts that captivate your heart and soul. Belief fuels passion, and passion rarely fails."

"True leaders are not those who strive to be first but those who are first to strive and who give their all for the success of the team. True leaders are first to see the need, envision the plan, and empower the team for action. By the strength of the leader's commitment, the power of the team is unleashed."

"Those who are victorious plan effectively and change decisively. They are like a great river that maintains its course but adjusts its flow...they have form but are formless. They are skilled in both planning and adapting and need not fear the result of a thousand battles; for they win in advance, defeating those that have already lost. " Sun Tzu, Chinese Warrior

"Those who preserve their integrity remain unshaken by the storms of daily life. They do not stir like leaves on a tree or follow the herd where it runs. In their mind remains the ideal attitude and conduct of living. This is not something given to them by others. It is their roots...It is a strength that exists deep within them." Anonymous Native American

"A Leader stands out by the nature of their commitment, and the integrity of their character."
