And how to apply them.

Every Saturday I aim to deliver the kind of quotes that plant seeds of success in your life.

We have so much to learn from the greatest minds in our world.

The Queen is best known for being, oh I don’t know, then Queen of England for the past 70 years.

Let’s get to it.

“It’s worth remembering that it is often the small steps, not the giant leaps, that bring about the most lasting change.”

It was this mindset that moved me into day building instead of goal setting.

The things we do every single day are what make our lives.

Imagine working on something for an hour every single day vs. 3 hour sprints on the weekend.

Every month you’d have 30 hours of work vs. 12.

At the end of a year you’d have 365 hours of work vs. 156.

Do a little bit every day. Even if you can’t give 100%, 20% is better than nothing. No zero days.

“Everyone is our neighbour, no matter what race, creed or colour.”

We’re a collaborative species. If we weren’t, we wouldn’t be where we are.

But we have also some faulty wiring from millions of years of evolution. This wiring prefers people who look like us.

We spent most of our existence living in bubbles with people from the same tribe as ours. We might’ve only seen a few hundred people our entire life and we rarely traveled more than 50 miles or so outside of home radius.

We need to outgrow this. And we have, but not enough. This is why we have so many clashes regarding race, gender and everything else.

“Sport has a wonderful way of bringing together people and nations.”

I know many people don’t enjoy sports.

But there’s a reason they’re so popular. They do bring us together. They teach teamwork. They build healthy bodies.

And this is why we think it’s so important our children play them. They have to pick at least one sport each.

Consider the benefits before writing off sports as a whole.
