Over the next couple of days I will be featuring some highlights from my experience at The Global Leadership Summit in Chicago.  So amazing!

Verse of the Day:
“To acquire wisdom is to love oneself;
people who cherish understanding will prosper.”
~Prov 19:8

Quotes from session 2 – Len Schlesinger (President of Babson College at Harvard):
Action Trumps Everything
“We are all entrepreneurs.  Only too few of us get to practice it”
In the face of unknowability what will action look like?
– Starting on the firm ground of reality – be honest with where you are.
– Start with the things you care about.
– Use what you have at hand
– Have friends and resources available to you for support
– What kind of SMALL step can you take NOW?
– Act quickly with the means at hand.
– Looking for the expectable return is nonsense.  Instead think about what the acceptable loss is, and only stop then.
– Failure doesn’t mean game over, it means try again with this new experience.  So stop operation with the fear of failure.

Quotes from session 2 – Cory Booker (Mayor of Newark, New Jersey):
Stand Up
“You are the result of a grand conspiracy of Love”
“We have what we have today because those before us saw hope in desolate times and chose to stand.”
“Your attitude about the world says nothing about the world; it says something about your character.”
“If it is to be – It’s up to me”
“If we LIVE our values we can create radical transformation”
“But before you tell me what you teach, show me how you live and give.”
“Let us now stand up. Let us stand because people stood for us and fought for us and bled for us. Let us stand because … change never rolls in on the wheels of inevitability. Let us stand because ‘liberty and justice for all’ must be a passion and purpose every day. And if we stand like this, then we will find a way to get to the roof.”

Verse of the Day:
“O Lord, how long will you forget me? Forever?
How long will you look the other way?
How long must I struggle with anguish in my soul,
with sorrow in my heart every day?
How long will my enemy have the upper hand?
Turn and answer me, O Lord my God!
Restore the sparkle to my eyes, or I will die.
Don’t let my enemies gloat, saying, “We have defeated him!”
Don’t let them rejoice at my downfall.
But I trust in your unfailing love.
I will rejoice because you have rescued me.
I will sing to the Lord
because he is good to me.”
~Ps. 13

Quote of the Day:
“If we knew what God knows, we’d want what God wants.”
~ Rick Ferguson

Lyrics of the Day:
“I don’t want to wait until tomorrow
To tell you how I’d feel the rest of my life
You don’t want a waste another minute to realize
Walking on the dark side of the evening
Baby it is you that opened my eyes
Burning like a fire on the water
The city of black and white.”
~“City of Black & White” by Mat kearney

Lyrics of the Day:
“If you find your self lost out in this world
Then I’ll find a way to get back to your side
No mountains to high, no stone is too small
I’ll build a bridge through the fire, for you I would crawl
From New York to California, To California, To California ”

Lyrics of the Day:
“She got the call today
One out of the gray
And when the smoke cleared
It took her breath away
She said she didn’t believe
It could happen to me
I guess we’re all one phone call from our knees
We’re gonna get there soon”

Lyrics of the Day:
“He is jealous for me,
Loves like a hurricane, I am a tree,
Bending beneath the weight of his wind and mercy.
When all of a sudden,
I am unaware of these afflictions eclipsed by glory,
And I realize just how beautiful You are,
And how great Your affections are for me.

And oh, how He loves us so,
Oh how He loves us,
How He loves us all ”
~ “How He Loves Us” by Kim Walker
