The great leaders are like the best conductors - they reach beyond the notes to reach the magic in the players.

The most belligerent Blaine Lee Pardoe quotes to get the best of your day

Courage is holding on one minute longer than everyone else.

Courage is stepping forward when every fiber of your being says step back. Courage is being willing to do the impossible because it is the right thing to do.


When people honor each other, there is a trust established that leads to synergy, interdependence, and deep respect. Both parties make decisions and choices based on what is right, what is best, what is valued most highly.


No matter where you are in life . . . [y]ou always have a choice and the choice can be power.


We are all capable of change and growth; we just need to know where to begin.


Doubt is most often the source of our powerlessness.

To doubt is to be faithless, to be without hope or belief. When we doubt, our self-talk sounds like this: 'I don't think I can. I don't think I will.'... To doubt is to have faith in the worst possible outcome. It is to believe in the perverseness of the universe, that even if I do well, something I don't know about will get in the way, sabotage me, or get me in the end.


To doubt is to have faith in the worst possible outcome.


A crisis + time = humor.


Before you attempt to set things right, make sure you see things right.


The principles you live by create the world you live in;

if you change the principles you live by, you will change your world.


No matter how frustrated you may feel, there is always a way out.

In every situation that arises, we choose to be powerful or powerless. It may not always feel like it, but it is a choice. And there are consequences for these choices in terms of the results we get, and the subsequent increase or decrease in our power and influence. If we choose powerlessness, it is often because we doubt there is any other option.
