A few days ago I was in Borders Bookstore with my weekly coupon. As usual I had more than one book in my hand and I was trying to narrow down the choice. I was reading the cover flaps and scanning each book and then I came to a quote in the back of the book:
If you plan on being anything less than you are capable of being, you will probably be unhappy all the days of your life.
I don’t know if 24 words have ever had that kind of effect on me before. (Well maybe that lawyer saying he thought we could beat it was good. 🙂 )
What Maslow is telling us is that everyday, regardless of what we did the day before, we can achieve unbelievable accomplishments.
As the majority of our readers are entrepreneurs this quote is very targeted to you. I would love to hear your thoughts on this quote or any other quote that has had a profound effect on you.
By the way, the book I bought is Bury My Heart at Conference Room B by Stan Slap.
