Who said it…

  • “We don’t build trust when we offer help.  We build trust when we ask for it.” -Simon Sinek
  • “No man is an island entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main; if a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as any manner of thy friends or of thine own were; any man’s death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind. And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee.” -John Donne
  • “Many people delay taking action because they hope to avoid suffering.  They keep searching for a path that won’t involve tradeoffs.  But some form of suffering is always inevitable.  The process of taking action is the process of choosing your pain.” –James Clear
  • “The struggle against an obstacle inevitably propels the fighter to a new level of functioning.  The extent of the struggle determines the extent of the growth.  The obstacle is an advantage, not adversity.  The enemy is any perception that prevents us from seeing this.” -Ryan Holiday, The Obstacle Is The Way
