Possibilities for greatness.............

-     Don't be in the business of playing it safe.  Be in the business of creating possibilities for greatness.

-     If you walk down the halls constantly telling people "the sky is falling," a sense of doom and gloom will, over time, permeate the company.  You can't communicate pessimism to the people around you.  It's ruinous to morale.  No one wants to follow a pessimist.

-     Optimism emerges from faith in yourself and in the people who work for you.  It's not about saying things are good when they're not, and it's not about conveying some blind faith that 'things will work out."  It's about believing in your and others' abilities.
