What is leadership? Leadership is love. What is love? Love is laying your life down for the sake of another. @rory_vaden

Fear is your creativity working in the wrong direction. @rory_vaden

Part of how you change your life is by intentionally creating the question “How?” so that you don’t accidentally relent to the question “Should?”. @rory_vaden

Courage is not the absence of fear. Courage is taking action in spite of fear. @rory_vaden

Faith is trust. And if you have that trust, you can move forward in the face of fear. @rory_vaden

Commitment is you. You make a decision and then you take action. @rory_vaden

Heroes make the commitment in advance and when difficult times come, they take action. They do their job; they follow through on their commitment. @rory_vaden

In spite of how I’m feeling in the moment, it doesn’t matter because I’ve already made the decision. @rory_vaden
