Thank you, CJP Staff

Another one Nikki wrote in college as a Psych & Theology Major is: "I see the faults that make us human and cry from pure joy that we are"

One more that she wrote when she was in grade school: "I'd rather face the consequences of the truth, than the reprocussions of a lie"

Quotes by w:John C. Maxwell

"Policies are many, Principles are few, Policies will change, Principles never do."

"A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way."

"A man must be big enough to admit his mistakes, smart enough to profit from them, and strong enough to correct them."

"Educators take something simple and make it complicated. Communicators take something complicated and make it simple."

"Good executives never put off until tomorrow what they can get someone else to do today."

"If you're lying, you're lying."

"Leaders must be close enough to relate to others, but far enough ahead to motivate them. "

"Leadership is influence."

"Learn to say 'no' to the good so you can say 'yes' to the best."

"People buy into the leader before they buy into the vision."

"Policies are many, Principles are few, Policies will change, Principles never do."

"Remember, man does not live on bread alone: sometimes he needs a little buttering up."

"The greatest day in your life and mine is when we take total responsibility for our attitudes. That's the day we truly grow up."

"The greatest mistake we make is living in constant fear that we will make one. "

"The whole idea of motivation is a trap. Forget motivation. Just do it. Exercise, lose weight, test your blood sugar, or whatever. Do it without motivation. And then, guess what? After you start doing the thing, that's when the motivation comes and makes it easy for you to keep on doing it."

"We choose what attitudes we have right now. And it's a continuing choice."

Thomas J. CairneyEdit

'Life should be deemed as a series of tests; each separated by a period of reflection and revision for the next. When one makes a wrong judgement, a simple mistake, they may feel as though they have failed either in that respected area of life or failed life completely. However what many do not realise is that life is a series of tests, and you can not dwell on the last test forever as sure enough the next one will arrive. But most importantly, life is a series of tests with unlimited re-sits, each of which you can learn from'- Thomas J. Cairney 20th February 2007
