Stephen R. Covey Quote: “If we overcome the pull and “get up and get at it,” we will have won a victory. We have kept our own resolve. We can then move to other things, for by small means great things are accomplished. Thus, even this one small step is also in another sense a giant leap.”

Stephen R. Covey Quote: “Did you ever consider how ridiculous it would be to try to cram on a farm – to forget to plant in the spring, play all summer and then cram in the fall to bring in the harvest? The farm is a natural system. The price must be paid and the process followed. You always reap what you sow; there is no shortcut.”
Stephen R. Covey Quote: “There are principles that govern human effectiveness – natural laws in the human dimension that are just as real, just as unchanging and unarguably there as laws such as gravity are in the physical dimension.”
Stephen R. Covey Quote: “It’s not enough to dream. It’s not enough to try. It’s not enough to set goals or climb ladders. It’s not enough to value.

Stephen R. Covey Quote: “It is our willing permission, our consent to what happens to us, that hurts us far more than what happens to us in the first place.”
Stephen R. Covey Quote: “Management is clearly different from leadership. Leadership is primarily a high-powered, right-brain activity. It’s more of an art it’s based on a philosophy. You have to ask the ultimate questions of life when you’re dealing with personal leadership issues.”

Stephen R. Covey Quote: “Before a performance, a sales presentation, a difficult confrontation, or the daily challenge of meeting a goal, see it clearly, vividly, relentlessly, over and over again.

Stephen R. Covey Quote: “The best way to develop courage is to set a goal and achieve it, make a promise and keep it.”
Stephen R. Covey Quote: “Independent will is our capacity to act. It gives us the power to transcend our paradigms, to swim upstream, to rewrite our scripts, to act based on principle rather than reacting based on emotion or circumstance.”
Stephen R. Covey Quote: “Power is the faculty or capacity to act, the strength and potency to accomplish something. It is the vital energy to make choices and decisions. It also includes the capacity to overcome deeply embedded habits and to cultivate higher, more effective ones.”
Stephen R. Covey Quote: “Empathic listening is also risky. It takes a great deal of security to go into a deep listening experience because you open yourself up to be influenced. You become vulnerable. It’s a paradox, in a sense, because in order to have influence, you have to be influenced. That means you have to really understand.”
Stephen R. Covey Quote: “When it comes to developing character strength, inner security and unique personal and interpersonal talents and skills in a child, no institution can or ever will compare with, or effectively substitute for, the home’s potential for positive influence.”

Stephen R. Covey Quote: “The children of blame are cynicism and hopelessness.”
