We are always looking for fresh sources of inspiration here at Legion, and we enjoy listening to our favorite figures from the business world and beyond for words of transformative wisdom. We have included a few of the Legion organization’s most cherished and inspirational quotes.
Our team understands the instructive value of failure, and basketball legend Michael Jordan put the issue in perspective quite well. He stated, “I’ve missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times I’ve been trusted to take the game-winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”
Amelia Earhart pursued her dreams with incredible determination, and she is quoted as saying, “The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity.” We admire the pilot’s grit, and we agree with her assertion that making the decision to take action and chase lofty objectives is the toughest part of achieving them.
Alice Walker gave us one of the most powerful and poignant bits of inspiration when she remarked, “The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.” Far too often, we don’t succeed because we don’t allow ourselves to try. Therefore, the celebrated author’s words are as unfortunate as they are true.
At Legion, we hope that you find these quotes as inspiring as we do.
