We appreciate the words of wise men and women, and look to those who have achieved remarkable success as guides on our own journeys. Here are some of the inspiring people we appreciate most at Initiatives, Inc. HQ:
” “Everyone Can Rise Above Their Circumstances and Achieve Success if They Are Dedicated to and Passionate About What They Do,” Nelson Mandela: Few people will ever face the trials that Mandela did before helping to end apartheid and become the first Black President of South Africa. He was willing to do whatever it took to realize his dream, an attitude we encourage in ourselves as well.
” “We Are Who We Pretend to Be, So We Must Be Careful About What We Pretend to Be,” Kurt Vonnegut: Vonnegut’s words are powerful reminders that what we think of ourselves can either help or hinder us. We are all prophets in our own lives, and we’re usually right – for better or for worse. This is why a positive attitude is so important for us to see during an Initiatives, Inc. interview.
” “If You Don’t Like Something, Change It. If You Can’t Change It, Change Your Attitude. Don’t Complain,” Maya Angelou: A leader of both the civil rights and women’s rights movements, Angelou takes the energy other people use for complaining and uses it to make lasting changes in the world. We take a similar viewpoint toward obstacles, and work to change either our situation or the way we see things.
We are inspired by these leaders and take their words to heart. For more information on what it takes to succeed, check out our Initiatives, Inc. Newswire.
