“The first step in any effective application of knowledge is getting the knowledge. The first step in changing the world is to first transform oneself. Always. If what you read isn’t transforming you in a positive way, it has no value – to anyone. Pick better books, a better venue for learning, a better set of mentors. Invest the time to give yourself a real leadership education, one in which you are not just a passenger but one of the people driving the wagon. Actively pursue excellence.”

-Oliver DeMille and Brad Bolon

“… Circumstances which people do not understand are classified under the heading of luck. Back of every reality is a cause. Often, the cause is so far removed from the effect that the circumstance can be explained only by attributing it to the operation of luck.” __ Napoleon Hill, ‘Outwitting the Devil’
