We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, it is a habit.
A good leader takes a little more than his share of the blame, a little less than his share of the credit.
Arnold H. Glasow
Success is that place in the road where preparation meets opportunity.
A successful man is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks others have thrown at him.
The ultimate measure of man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
The supreme quality for leadership is unquestionably integrity. Without it, no real success is possible, no matter whether it is on a section gang, a football field, in an army, or in an office.
Dwight D. Eisenhower
Leadership, like coaching, is fighting for the hearts and souls of men and getting them to believe in you.
Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.
Harold R. McAlindon
Treat a person as he is, and he will remain as he is. Treat him as he could be, and he will become what he should be.
The task of leadership is not to put greatness into people, but to elicit it, for the greatness is there already.
Effort and courage are not enough without purpose and direction.
John F. Kennedy
Together we are better.
John Paul Warren
Real leaders are ordinary people with extraordinary determinations.
John Seaman Garns
Nothing will work unless you do.
A leader is best when people barely know he exists, when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say: we did it ourselves.
Leadership is getting players to believe in you. If you tell a teammate you're ready to play as tough as you're able to, you'd better go out there and do it. Players will see right through a phony. And they can tell when you're not giving it all you've got.
Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence wins championships.
In leadership, there are no words more important than trust. In any organization, trust must be developed among every member of the team if success is going to be achieved.
I don't look at myself as a basketball coach. I look at myself as a leader who happens to coach basketball.
There are only two options regarding commitment. You're either in or out. There is no such thing as life in-between.
The only thing that counts is your dedication to the game. You run on your own fuel; it comes from within you.
Real leadership is leaders recognizing that they serve the people that they lead.
Luck is a dividend of sweat. The more you sweat, the luckier you get.
A star wants to see himself rise to the top. A leader wants to see those around him rise to the top.
Once you learned how to quit it becomes a habit.
The final test of a leader is that he leaves behind him in other men the conviction and the will to carry on.
You will get all you want in life, if you help enough other people get what they want.
