LNE Consulting (Hollywood, FL) shares a collection of quotes that will change the way you think about success.

IMG_0249

In every career path, people strive for the same thing: success. But success—ever desired and often elusive—is nearly impossible to quantify. A person who is largely viewed as successful may vehemently deny that they have reached such a status. The truth is that success comes in many different forms, each of which should be recognized and celebrated. That’s why LNE Consulting gathered 4 of the most thought-provoking quotes about success, guaranteed to challenge and transform the way you think about it.

1) “Never mind what others do; do better than yourself, beat your own record from day to day, and you are a success.”—William J.H. Boetcker

This quote is a fantastic reminder that those who constantly compare themselves to other people will never be content with any amount of success. At the end of the day, you are your biggest competitor. It’s you versus you. Your personal success should be measured by your personal progress!

2) “Life is about making an impact, not making an income.”—Kevin Kruse

So many people believe that the mark of true success is wealth. As Kruse reminds us with this quote, life should not be wasted in pursuit of financial gains. Your focus should be on leaving an impact that will live on after you’re gone, because money can’t buy you a legacy.

3) “Winners are not afraid of losing. But losers are. Failure is part of the process of success. People who avoid failure also avoid success.”—Robert T. Kiyosaki

This quote is one of many which emphasize the role of failure in reaching success. The lesson here is that success is never reached without the wisdom learned from failure. People who are too afraid to try will never learn such lessons and therefore never find prosperity.

4) “Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.”—Winston Churchill

As Winston Churchill reminds us with this quote, nothing is permanent. Those who reach success may become prideful and fall from it. In contrast, those who fail should not be discouraged, because the courage that they gain in persevering is pivotal in the pursuit of success.

Celebrating National Left Handers Day:​ 5 Quotes From Famous Left-handed People [LIST]

Here at LNE Consulting (Hollywood, FL), we celebrate originality! Did you know that only 10% of the world’s population is left-handed? To some, it may seem like a disadvantage because the world is essentially built to fit right-handed folks! Smudging ink on your hand while writing on a piece of paper, unfitting “righty” desks in the classroom, and even screwing in a light bulb, the life of a lefty is full of frustrating obstacles. In celebration of National Left Handers Day on August 13th, here are 5 quotes from famous left-handed people!

Jerry Seinfeld, the famous stand-up comedian, and star of hit TV show Seinfeld is a lefty! Considering that he wrote all of his jokes and all of the scripts for Seinfeld by hand, being a lefty had to be frustrating for Jerry. The superstar knows hard work and determination like the back of his hand (pun intended) and understands the necessity for new challenges because it’s all part of the process!

Morgan Freeman, the golden-voiced actor is also left-handed! He is an epic movie star who also has a successful career in narration due to his soothing voice. Freeman clearly believes that actions speak louder than words – a principle that we also stand by here at LNE Consulting!

The producer, philanthropist, actress, and talk show host sure does have her hands in a lot of creative outlets – her best hand though? You guessed it – her left! Oprah has always maintained a very positive outlook on life and the world around her, which is why it is not surprising that she is so successful. Like all successful people, Winfrey acknowledges failure, but only as an opportunity to keep moving forward!

As an author, philanthropist, investor, and co-founder of Microsoft, Bill Gates is one of the most successful left-handed people alive today. Co-founding Microsoft is not something that happens overnight, especially since the company was started in Bill’s garage! His patience, hard work, and determination are what made him the enormous success that he is today!

The Canadian singer and businesswoman is one of the most famous performers in the industry! Celine Dion also holds her microphone with her left hand!

9 Quotes About Making Excuses – and How to Rid Yourself of this Terrible Habit

lne-consulting-2Excuses are a dime a dozen, which is precisely why not everyone achieves success in their careers. At LNE Consulting, time and time again, we’ve seen top performers separate themselves from the “average” simply by ditching the excuses and taking accountability.

Successful people realize that excuses won’t pay their bills. They realize that while some people are making excuses, other people are always going to be making it happen — and if they want to be top performers, they’re going to have to deliver no matter what.

The key to eliminating excuses is recognizing that you are in control. Instead of feeling like the world is happening “to” you, make the decision to exercise your power wherever you possibly can. Don’t like your circumstances? Check your attitude and tackle the problem head on.

It also helps to remind yourself that excuses are not just keeping you from hitting your goals — but they’re damaging to your credibility as a professional. Every time you make an excuse it’s like the story of the boy who cried wolf — you might be able to get away with it once or twice, but eventually those around you will stop believing you.

Here are 9 of our favorite quotes that will hopefully inspire you to ditch the excuse-making!

“Ninety-nine percent of all failures come from people who have a habit of making excuses.” -George Washington Carver

“Your excuses are just the lies your fears have sold you.” -Robin Sharma

“If it is important to you, you will find a way. If not, you’ll find an excuse.”

“Excuses will always be there for you, opportunity won’t.”

“He that is good for making excuses is seldom good for anything else.” -Benjamin Franklin

“Success is what comes after you stop making excuses.”

“Replace excuses with effort, replace laziness with determination, and everything will fall into place.”

“When I lost all of my excuses I found my results.”

“Excuses are the enemy of excellence.”

Do You Have a Billionaire Mindset? These 2 Charlie Munger Quotes Will Help You Develop One

lne-consultingAt LNE Consulting we wholeheartedly believe that the most efficient way to become successful is to learn from those who have been there before you. And who better to learn from than the greats?

You’re undoubtedly familiar with billionaire Warren Buffet, but a man you may not know as well is Charlie Munger, his business partner. Worth about $1.4 billion, Munger has been a mentor and friend to Buffet for many years. He is the vice chairman of Berkshire Hathaway as well as a generous philanthropist.

We found a few great quotes from Charlie Munger that stuck out to us:

Three rules for a career: 1. Don’t sell anything you wouldn’t buy yourself; 2. Don’t work for anyone you don’t respect and admire; and 3. Work only with people you enjoy.” – Charlie Munger

We love everything about this quote because it speaks to authenticity and the ingredients for a happy life. The team at LNE Consulting knows first-hand the benefits of selling a product that is truly a cut above the competition, and we’ve been incredibly fortunate over the years to represent companies with impressive product lines. We also could not agree more with Munger’s suggestion to work only for those whom you respect and admire. This is why leadership by example is of utmost important to us. Working with people you enjoy is also crucial. When your coworkers become more like your “work family,” everything about your day to day life is better — and this we can attest to from experience!

“It is really useful to be reminded of your errors. I think Warren Buffett and I are pretty good at that. We do kind of mentally rub our own noses in our own mistakes. And that is a very good mental habit.” – Charlie Munger

Our favorite thing about this quote is the way that Munger looks at failure. At LNE Consulting we teach our team to fail their way to the top. The more mistakes a person makes, the better! So many people get caught up in failure and never give themselves the opportunity to learn from their mistakes. So take a page out of Charlie Munger’s book and develop a billionaire’s mental habit of acknowledging your errors and making positive changes.

LNE Consulting on the Importance of Failure

 

At LNE Consulting we believe that repeated failure is the key to success. Like we often tell our management trainees, the key to getting promoted faster is failing faster. The more quickly you can make and learn from your mistakes, the more rapidly you’ll be on your way to becoming a master. Take a look at two quotes we love that embody this philosophy.

“When you take risks, you learn that there will be times when you succeed, and there will be times when you fail, and both are equally important.” —Ellen DeGeneres

Success is a decent teacher, and failure is an amazing teacher. It’s important to be able to learn from both.

When things are going well for you, don’t just ride the wave. Take the time to recognize why you’re doing well. Have you been getting more sleep lately and taking care of your health? Have you been dedicating the time to planning more effectively? Has your sense of urgency and efficiency been extra on point? Are you spending extra time building relationships with your customers or team members? It’s important to write these things down because they’ll serve as a checklist to return to when everything is not running as smoothly.

On the flip side, do your best to look at failure in a positive light. Anyone who has ever become great at something has failed and failed and failed. As a rookie, it’s easy to forget that making mistakes is normal. It’s easy to beat yourself up and be tempted to give up because you don’t think you’re a “natural.” The reality, though, is that as long as you’re giving 100%, making mistakes is the healthy thing to do. Focus your energy on learning from your mistakes, and do everything in your power not to make the same mistake twice. Continuous learning will be the key to your success.

“No human ever became interesting by not failing. The more you fail and recover and improve, the better you are as a person. Ever meet someone who’s always had everything work out for them with zero struggle? They usually have the depth of a puddle. Or they don’t exist.” —Chris Hardwick

This quote is so accurate! Without any doubt, the most interesting and respectable people we’ve ever met have been those who have been through a lot in their lives and careers. Think about the opposite: a person who wakes up one morning rich, who didn’t have to do anything to earn it. There’s nothing inspiring about that. The greatest stories are from those who have endured a struggle and overcome it.

3 Killer Quotes to Motivate You Today

At LNE Consulting (Hollywood, FL) we love a good motivational quote, and here we’d like to share three that made an impact on us. Enjoy!

“I think goals should never be easy, they should force you to work, even if they are uncomfortable at the time.” – Michael Phelps

There is no one better to share words of wisdom like these than Michael Phelps, the most decorated Olympian of all time. His results speak for themselves: he’s set goals that undeniably forced him to step outside what would be comfortable, even for a top athlete. We humbly echo his sentiments here at LNE Consulting and encourage every member of the team to set audacious goals to really push themselves.

“I know how it looks. But just start. Nothing is insurmountable.” – Lin-Manuel Miranda

This quote speaks to how difficult it is to get started on something new, but how important it is to try. The great thing is, once you get going, momentum will take over and help carry you forward. With the right attitude and work ethic, there are few things that can’t be accomplished. So the next time you find yourself procrastinating getting started, just force yourself to take the first step, even if it’s a baby one.

“Hustling is putting every minute and all your effort into achieving the goal at hand. Every minute needs to count.” – Gary Vaynerchuk

Vaynerchuk is a master motivator if we’ve ever seen one, and he couldn’t be more right about what it means to hustle. When you’re truly hustling you know it. You’re not just “sort of” focused and “kind of” working hard. When you’re hustling you’re running on all cylinders, you’re a man with a plan, you’re a woman on a mission. If you’ve ever been in the zone, you know what it feels like to put every minute and every ounce of your energy towards achieving a goal. Why is this important? Because this is the key to achieving greatness.

Giving 100% and Stepping Outside One’s Comfort Zone: Two Essentials for Success

Developing a successful mentality is an integral part of the management training program at LNE Consulting in Hollywood, FL. Here, we will share two quotes that speak to the philosophies that are most important at our firm.

“A person should set his goals as early as he can and devote all his energy and talent to getting there. With enough effort, he may achieve it. Or he may find something that is even more rewarding. But in the end, no matter what the outcome, he will know he has been alive.” – Walt Disney

The most important part of this quote is where Disney talks about devoting all of your energy to a goal. Anyone who has ever accomplished something major will tell you that it’s all about giving it your all. When you keep your back doors open and don’t fully commit to seeing something through, you’ll find that your likelihood of success shrinks dramatically. As Disney said, when you give 100% to your goal, you’ll either achieve it, or you’ll discover something even greater. The key is to go all in if anything is going to be worth your while.

“Sometimes, I shake if I have to do something that I’ve never done before –– maybe not noticeably, but inside. But I’ll do it, because I know it’s not an insurmountable task; I’ve done plenty of tasks in my life.” – Martha Stewart

Say what you will about Martha Stewart, but you have to admit that she’s a well-accomplished woman who’s accumulated a lot of wisdom in her day. This quote is all about comfort zones. As we like to say at LNE Consulting, it’s about getting comfortable being uncomfortable.

It’s totally normal to feel timid when it comes to trying something new. It’s important to realize, though, that living outside of your comfort zone is almost like exercising a muscle: the more you do it, the stronger you become. If you get in the habit of pushing yourself, you’ll develop confidence that only comes from accomplishing the thing you thought you couldn’t.
