Welcome to Transformation Tuesday at Createyou86. This can be a bit of a cliche post, but there are so many amazingly smart people with quotes that i love, and that inspire me everyday. This is my opportunity to not only share my favorites with all of you, but to inspire you. There is no specific topic for this post, and there are several different types of quotes included in the mix.
Andy Warhol was a cultural, and artistic genius. This quote can resonate with pretty much anyone. Everything i do in life i do so that i can create an amazing legacy. Weather it be creating Createyou86, or taking college classes I have had in mind that i need to leave behind something great if not for my children, then for my children's children. Leave something great behind, and create your own legacy!
Kurt Vonnegut is my favorite author of all time. His words sink into my being. He is one of the greatest science fiction writers of this generation. Have you ever sat back, and thought "If i had done ________ would things be different? I haven't. I don't have any regrets for the things that i have done, and if i see an opportunity i take it unless i feel that there would be a negative impact, or something would drastically change for the worse. What opportunities are you looking at from a distance? Go get it!
From someone who has been called bossy most of her life this quote packs some punch. I never thought of myself as bossy, but i guess type A personalities never really think that about themselves. If you think about it some of the greatest coaches, and minds have been called bossy, or dictator in response to how they deal with people. Vince Lombardi one of the greatest football coaches of all time was frequently called a dictator with good reason. He got shit done, and he won games. George Washington was one of the greatest minds, and military general's of our time, and has been called a genius in leadership. When did bossy become a bad word? I understand a good leader isn't always overbearing, and bossy, but they are certainly controlling in certain ways. I wish people had told me i had great leadership skills as a child, it may have helped with where i wanted to be as a professional.
Like i said before Kurt Vonnegut speaks to me. I don't think that this quote could be more appropriate. It never fails that every time i open up Facebook, or turn on the news there is another reason to be embarrassed about being human, the most recent being the trophy hunting of defenseless beautiful, and endangered animals. You know who else keeps trophies of their victims?.......serial killers......just saying. There are so many other things we could be doing to help the world, and this isn't one of them. Do the world, and humans a favor, and be awesome!
