From The Difference Maker by John Maxwell

Guillaume Apolllinaire- “Come to the edge. No, we will fall. Come to the edge. No, we will fall. They came to the edge. He pushed them and they flew”

John Maxwell- “If you want to seize an opportunity, you must take a risk. If you want to grow, you must make mistakes. If you want to reach your potential, you will have to take a chance. If you don’t , you will be resigned to a life of mediocrity. The people who don’t make mistakes end up working for those who do. And in the end, they often end up regretting the safe life they lived.”
Just happy to lead such amazing
