“Whatever it is that you desire to do in life, have the courage and the commitment to do it, and to do it to your absolute best.” –Pat Summitt

“The point is that I don’t believe you need the mind of a champion to be successful in business.  You need to do only two things: work harder than all those who are competing with you and imitate the actions of successful people you admire.  If you do that long enough, you will have the success you yearn for.  And as a bonus, you will have acquired courage and confidence, too.” -Mark Ford

“In her magical mystery world at the Eccles Building (Fed HQ) Janet Yellen surveys all of this.  She has never run a business.  She has never even had a job in a profit-making business…..  Bernanke, in his new book, The Courage to Act, tells us that he ‘did not want to be remembered as the person whose decisions had led to the Fed’s destruction.’  That’s right: The biggest challenge hits the Fed in 80 years and Mr. Bernanke is worried about his own reputation!” -Bill Bonner

Perhaps this is the biggest problem with many of our institutions and politics.  We have leaders with no experience in the real world and care more about their reputation than doing what needs to done.
