When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life. John Lennon

Slide 12

Success at the highest level comes down to one question: 'Can you make the choice that your happiness can come from someone else’s success?’ No one has qualities like courage, vision, charisma, adaptability, and decisiveness in equal measure.
