Inspiration from five wise men to start the week

06 May

At deVere Group we’re fortunate enough to work within a fast-paced, dynamic, globally focused industry; we’re fortunate enough to be part of a successful and growing organisation; and we’re fortunate enough to have some of the most uniquely talented individuals as colleagues.

However, sometimes it is important to pause for a moment, and take time out to get inspired from the insight and wisdom of hugely successful people from the past or outside our immediate circle to see how we can develop further both professionally and personally.

So, as we start off another exciting week full of promise, here, below, are a handful of my favourite quotes from some of the most successful, self-made individuals of all time that I believe we can all take something from.

“Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t, you’re right.  If you believe you can, you can.”  ~ Henry Ford

”Singleness of purpose is one of the chief essentials in life.” ~ John D. Rockefeller

“The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack of will.” ~ Vince Lombardi

“If you are not willing to risk the usual you will have to settle for the ordinary.” Jim Rohn

”My interest in life comes from setting myself huge, apparently unachievable challenges and trying to rise above them.”~ Richard Branson

Of course, there are plenty more of these and I’ll post some more shortly.  In the meantime, why not share some of your favourite motivational lines in the comments section below?

Have a good week.
