A quote by William Shakespeare on adversity is the topic of this blog post.

“Let me embrace thee, sour adversity, for wise men say it is the wisest course.” William Shakespeare

“You know if William Shakespeare said it there must be some truth in this quote. I know in my heart that this quote is true.  I know from my own past experiences in life that adversity is not fun when you are going through it but if you can do your best to overcome it you will reap the rewards. Just over 8 years ago I was facing a lot of adversity in my business and personal life and at first I felt overwhelmed. But when I finally found the courage to face it I began to discover that I had a lot more strengths than I had ever imagined. And now just over 8 years later both my business and personal life are much happier than before. I owe my current level of success to facing adversity instead of denying it and hiding from it.” Stan Burman

Quote by Oprah Winfrey on luck.

A quote by Oprah Winfrey on luck is the topic of this blog post.

“I feel that luck is preparation meeting opportunity.” Oprah Winfrey

“This is another excellent quote by Oprah Winfrey. What many people call good luck is actually preparation meeting opportunity as Oprah Winfrey knows to be true as I am sure her fame and fortune are due to her being prepared when opportunity came along. If you are not prepared than you will never be able to take advantage of even the best opportunity comes along. I do feel that at least in the long run a person does make their own luck in that you must be prepared to take advantage when life provides you with a great opportunity. You have to be ready and willing to commit your body and soul to the opportunity when it comes along because if you are not that opportunity may never come along again. Great opportunities do not come along very often in life so you have to be prepared. I was prepared when my opportunity came along just over 5 years ago and while some people may consider that to be sheer luck I agree with Oprah Winfrey that it was due to preparation meeting opportunity.” Stan Burman

Quote by Adam Smith on self-interest.

A quote by Adam Smith on self-interest is the topic of this blog post.

“It is not from the benevolence of the butcher, the brewer, or the baker that we expect our dinner, but from their regard to their own interest.” Adam Smith

“This quote is undoubtedly quoted more often than most of Adam Smith’s other quotes for a good reason. The absolute truth of this quote cannot be denied and I absolutely agree with this quote. I do not doubt for a moment that individuals that are acting in their own self-interest do, at least the great majority of the time serve the common interest.   I absolutely support the right of any person to act in their own self-interest as long as they do not infringe on the rights of others. Where I personally part company with many people who tend to quote Adam Smith is the tendency to use this quote to justify the most greedy and unscrupulous behavior imaginable such as that engaged in by many of the big banks and other big corporations, particularly on Wall Street.” Stan Burman

Quote by Babe Ruth on teamwork

Quote by Babe Ruth on teamwork.

A quote by Babe Ruth on teamwork is the topic of this blog post.

“The way a team plays as a whole determines its success. You may have the greatest bunch of individual stars in the world, but if they don’t play together, the club won’t be worth a dime.” Babe Ruth

“I know from personal experience that this quote by Babe Ruth is true.  I have worked in companies where the employees did not work so well together even though many were good people and those companies were some of the worst places I have ever worked. I can say honestly that I would have to be one paycheck away from living in the street to go back to work at a company like that. Teamwork is critical in determining the success or failure of a baseball team or a company. Babe Ruth clearly understood the importance of teamwork a lesson that seems to be lost on many executives of dysfunctional yet large companies.” Stan Burman

Quote by Aristotle on quality

Quote by Aristotle on quality
Quote by Aristotle on quality,

A quote by Aristotle on quality is the topic of this blog post.

“Quality is not an act, it is a habit.” Aristotle

“This excellent quote by Aristotle shows that our habits affect us in many different ways. In essence our habits become our life to a great extent.  For some people nowadays quality is just an act but I would much prefer to do business with someone for whom quality is not just a mere act but is their habit. If someone does everything in their power to practice the habit of quality in their business or personal life they will begin to reap the rewards sooner or later. It does take time to practice the habit of quality but I know for fact that it is well worth the effort as I have seen the positive effects in my own business and personal life.” Stan Burman

Quote by Winston Churchill on perseverance.

A quote by Winston Churchill on perseverance is the topic of this blog post.

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.” Winston Churchill

“This excellent quote by Winston Churchill is a great example of the power of perseverance. If you rest on your laurels for too long success may slip from your grasp and if you allow failure to consume you success will be next to impossible to achieve.  I know from my own life that having the courage to continue is vital in any of life’s endeavors. Without the will to persevere you will find it next to impossible to achieve any decent level of success. With the will to persevere you will find that you can do things that at first you would have never dreamed were possible.” Stan Burman

A quote by Benjamin Franklin on education is the topic of this blog post.

“Genius without education is like silver in the mine.” Benjamin Franklin

“Excellent quote from Benjamin Franklin that emphasizes the importance of education as the foundation needed to make the most out of intelligence.  Without a firm foundation based on a proper education even the most intelligent person will most likely be unable to utilize their true potential.   I know this from my own experience as I credit my early education with laying the foundation that has allowed me to achieve my current level of success. Without a proper education I would never have been able to accomplish what I have already accomplished.” Stan Burman
