  • There are two types of leaders you can learn from: really good leaders, and really bad leaders. Learn from both of them equally.
  • Some people need to be pushed, some need to be pulled, and some need to be left alone.
  • You need to be able to enhance the strength of your team members, while working on their weaknesses at the same time.
  • Find out who is on your team, what their strengths and weaknesses are, and how to motivate them.
  • There are people that plan, and there are people that take action.
  • You have to be able to put in the work.
  • You will learn from each bad experience you have.
  • Going through the tough times makes you a different person. You will always wind up on top if you learn from your experiences.
