Others

Learn to like people just as they are, instead of demanding that they be just as you want them to be.
Napoleon Hill

Always make others feel needed, important and appreciated and they’ll return the same to you.
John Maxwell

When someone is relating an important event that’s happened to them, don’t try to top them with a story of your own. Let them have the stage.
H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

The greatest good we can do for others is not to share our riches but to reveal theirs.
B.J. Marshall

Remember those in prison as if you were their fellow prisoners, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.
Hebrews 13:3

Prayer

We pray for silver, but God often gives us gold instead.
Martin Luther

We look upon prayer as a means for getting things for ourselves; the Bible idea of prayer is that we may get to know God Himself.
Oswald Chambers

The best disposition for praying is that of being desolate, forsaken, stripped of everything.
St. Augustine

If you want to be able to pray better, you must be able to pray more.
Anonymous

Prayer is a joy. Prayer is the sunshine of God’s love, prayer is hope of eternal happiness, prayer is the burning flame of God’s love for you and for me. Let us pray for each other, for this is the best way to love one another.
Mother Teresa

Really great people always see the best in others; it is the little man who looks for the worst – and finds it.
Samuel Coleridge-Taylor

Look for opportunities to make people feel important.
H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

Let me be a little meeker
With the brother that is weaker,
Let me think more of my neighbor
And a little less of me.
Edgar Guest

Always talk about others as if they were present.
Stephen Covey

No matter how horrible someone is, there is always something about them that is good. Your job is to find that good bit and highlight it, speak about it, draw attention to it.
Richard Templar

Prayer

It’s hard to dislike people for whom we pray.
H.L. Sidney Lear

Prayer is not only asking, but an attitude of mind which produces the atmosphere in which asking is perfectly natural.
Oswald Chambers

It may be that he can only sigh, stammer, and mutter. But as long as it is a request brought before God, God will hear it and understand it.
Karl Barth

The greatest tragedy is not an unanswered prayer, but an unoffered prayer.
Anonymous

I believe the old cliché, “God helps those who help themselves,” is not only misleading but often dead wrong. My most spectacular answers to prayers have come when I was so helpless, so out of control as to be able to do nothing at all for myself.
Catherine Marshall

Leadership

With a determined effort any leader can develop some degree of charisma. Like good leadership, charisma starts with an enthusiastic, positive, joyful approach to life in general. This inner strength, when properly cultivated and expressed, strikes a chord in others, enabling a leader to bring out the best in them.
John Bahnsen

The truly successful businessman is essentially a dissenter, a rebel who is seldom if ever satisfied with the status quo.
J. Paul Getty

It’s a mark of real leadership to take the lead in getting to know people. Next time you are in a large group, observe something very significant: the most important person present is the one person most active in introducing himself.
David Schwartz

The man who is worthy of being a leader of men will never complain about the stupidity of his helpers, the ingratitude of mankind nor the inappreciation of the public. To meet them and overcome them and not to go down before them in disgust, discouragement or defeat – that is the final proof of power.
William Boetcker

Priorities

The key is not to prioritize what’s on your schedule, but to schedule your priorities.
Stephen Covey

To keep from being overwhelmed by adversity, I work hard to keep my priorities in order. The priorities in my life, ranked in descending order, are: God, family, others, football.
Bobby Bowden

Without ever knowing it, we are assaulted by a high note of urgency all the time. We end up pacing ourselves to the city rhythm whether or not it’s our own. In time we grow hard of hearing to the rest of the world. Like a violinist stuck next to the timpani, we may lose the ability to hear our own instrument.
Ellen Goodman

Start every day with the most important thing you have to do. Save the less important tasks for later.
H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

Figure out what your top two or three priorities are, spend your time and energy on them, and let the rest go. Simply accept that it’s not possible to do it all, and that it’s all right if you don’t – in fact, it’s immeasurably better if you don’t. You can have a happy and fulfilling life while doing only part of it. People have done that successfully for years.
Elaine St. James
