Live a Presidential Life

Who doesn’t love a good, inspirational quote? In honor of President’s Day we put together five pieces of advice that will help you succeed as a student and as a contributing citizen, no matter the country you reside. To back us up, we offer wise words to all mankind from the current and past presidents of the United States of America.

Believe in yourself

“There are no constraints on the human mind, no walls around the human spirit, no barriers to our progress except those we ourselves erect.” Ronald Reagan

“The only limit to our realization of tomorrow will be our doubts of today.” Franklin D Roosevelt

Make a difference

“One person can make a difference and every person should try.” John F Kennedy

“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.” John Quincy Adams

Get started and don’t give up

“If you’re walking down the right path and you’re willing to keep walking, eventually you’ll make progress.” Barack Obama

“Things may come to those who wait…but only the things left by those who hustle.” Abraham Lincoln

“A man is not finished when he is defeated. He is finished when he quits.” Richard Nixon

Do your best and help others be their best

“It is easier to do a job right than to explain why you didn’t.” Martin Van Buren

“I learned that a great leader is a man who has the ability to get other people to do what they don’t want to do and like it” Harry S Truman

Speak wisely and listen closely

 “The time comes upon every public man when it is best for him to keep his lips closed.” Abraham Lincoln

listen1And one last bit of advice  from us at Distance Minnesota  that applies to everything from courses to friendships to careers is to always listen. Listen before you speak. Listen before you act.

We may not be president around here, but we are always ready to listen and we do our best to be role models of how to implement the advice above. Contact us seven days a week!
