realizing how strong you are.
The human body, the human mind and
the human heart can take a lot.
Fight through bad times in business,
and you’ll be surprised you can
work through it usually.
But people give up too soon,
and they don’t realize how much more
they can put into it without giving up.”

Friendships of the Genuine Kind

Network of genuine friends of various cultures, T. Hsieh quote,
“My advice is to stop trying to “network” in the traditional business sense,
and instead just try to build up the number and depth of your friendships,
where the friendship itself is its own reward.
The more diverse your set of friendships are,
the more likely you’ll derive both personal and business benefits
from your friendship later down the road.
You won’t know exactly what those benefits will be,
but if your friendships are genuine,
those benefits will magically appear 2-3 years later down the road.”
~ Tony Hsieh,
Internet Entrepreneur, Venture Capitalist, Co-Founder of Venture Frogs & Author

Somebody Who Knows Someone, Who Knows Someone

“I do believe in six degrees of separation.

Be Bouncy & Bounce Back Well

“People fail all the time.
I can even point to this book project.
The number of book proposals I’ve had out there outweighs
the number of books that I’ve actually written, by ten-fold.
For every success, there are about a dozen failures behind that.
How do you take that then into your everyday life?
What I’ve found is much of it is about attitude.
How do you bounce back?
How you bounce back is more important than the failure itself.
If you have that positive attitude — …, you are a perennial optimist as well —
it can mean such a difference to the path of your career
versus being taken down by it and wallowing in that mistake….”
