Last week I wrote about a leadership resolution. I suggested that it would be a great idea for us use the season as a means to be a leader and help those around us to be successful.

Studies show that the average person will give up on their resolution in around eighty- four days. That means that in seventy- seven days from today, most of us will have forgotten our resolutions and moved onto living back to the way we were before the end of the year.

I thought that I would take this week and provide you with a few quotes to share with others, and possibly for you as well. These are quotes to help you to hang in there and don’t give up on your goal.
