Pictures Are Worth a Thousand Words

Posted on by admin

Mindful leadership is leadership from the inside out.  And, this inner leadership transforms us.  As we transform, we have the privilege and pleasure of being of service, and having a positive impact on the world.

“Pictures are worth a thousand words”, and the quotes below are true words of wisdom.  I would like to thank Aurie Massey for sending this along.  It is so beautiful, it needs to be shared.

If you are looking for a time-out in the middle of your day, you may wish to read the quotes and view the pictures as a meditation and contemplation.  They are profound.  And, if you allow yourself to sit in stillness for a few minutes, you will notice how you can feel regenerated, calm and inspired.

I hope you enjoy the experience.
