I’m a hoarder of everything that’s both inspirational and business, that’s why today I’m sharing 5 interviews with CEO’s that don’t only give food for thought but have also helped me feeling more confident about the direction I’m heading in my life.
1. What Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz taught me about communication and success
Quote: “You cannot inspire unless you’re inspired yourself. Passion is everything and, as a leader, you must share that passion at every opportunity.”
Quote: “the truth is I have from the very beginning listened to my instincts. All of my best decisions in life have come because I was attuned to what really felt like the next right move for me.”
Quote: To the question “So why do smart people do things that interfere with getting the output they’re capable of?” Buffet answered that it has to do with one’s habits, character, and temperament: “Everybody here has the ability absolutely to do anything I do and much beyond, and some of you will and some of you won’t. The ones that won’t, it’ll be because you get in your own way. It won’t be that the world doesn’t allow you to. It will be because you don’t allow yourself to.”
Quote: “Again, you can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.”
Quote: “Started a blog. Was ridiculed for creating a silly little vanity site. And went on to turn it into what is arguably the most successful blog of all time, the Huffington Post.”
