Seeds of Greatness by Denis Waitley

(These quotes were taken from Denis Waitley's Excerpts from The Seeds of Greatness Treasury booklet)

Seeds of Family Leadership: Empowering Others The world needs role models, instead of critics.

Others know when you have their best interests at heart.

You are truly successful when you can extend a strong hand to someone who is reaching out or just trying to hang on.

Come through for others, and they will come through for you.

People who seek attention, need all the help they can get.

You know you’re a success when people tell you, "I like me best when I'm with you.

"If we succeed without sacrifice, it's because someone sacrificed for us.

Real power comes by empowering others!

Promises should not be given lightly unless you want them lightly received.

If I help you win, then I win too!

Hmmmmmm, I like those adages but . . . have you ever seen the movie Mystery Men? Some of your quotes here remind me of some lines spoken by one of the characters, The Sphinx. His wisdom always came in formulaic sayings.

For example, he said, "To learn my teachings, I must first teach you how to learn." Or "When you care what is outside, what is inside cares for you."

Good movie, though.
