個人的にはSamuel Taylor Coleridgeの言葉は胸にズシンと来ますね。
"No man is capable of self-improvement if he sees no other model but himself."
-- Conrado I. Generoso
"My mentor said, ‘Let's go do it,´ not ‘You go do it.´ How powerful when someone says, 'Let's!'"
-- Jim Rohn
"If you want to be successful, find someone who has achieved the results you want and copy what they do and you'll achieve the same results."
-- Anthony Robbins
"No one lives long enough to learn everything they need to learn starting from scratch. To be successful, we absolutely, positively have to find people who have already paid the price to learn the things that we need to learn to achieve our goals."
-- Brian Tracy
"Example has more followers than reason. We unconsciously imitate what pleases us, and approximate to the characters we most admire."
-- Christian Nevell Bovee
"No one can teach you that which they have not done. Beware of who you choose to learn from."
-- Tom Hopkins
"That which we are, we are all the while teaching, not voluntarily, but involuntarily."
-- Ralph Waldo Emerson
"The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires."
-- William Arthur Ward
"Apprentice for two years to a great, inspiring leader who'll mentor and teach you. Execute his or her requests with excellence and elegance. Meet and befriend all his or her friends, associates, bankers, clients, suppliers and actively keep them in your own Rolodex."
-- Mark Victor Hansen
"Leadership is practiced not so much in words as in attitude and in actions."
-- Harold S. Geneen
"To teach is to learn twice."
-- Joseph Joubert
"Advice is like snow; the softer it falls, the longer it dwells upon, and the deeper it sinks into the mind."
-- Samuel Taylor Coleridge
"The true secret of giving advice is, after you have honestly given it, to be perfectly indifferent whether it is taken or not and never persist in trying to set people right."
-- Hannah Whitall Smith
"You can't push anyone up the ladder unless he is willing to climb himself."
-- Andrew Carnegie
"A coach is someone who tells you what you don't want to hear, who has you see what you don't want to see, so you can be who you have always known you could be."
-- Tom Landry
