Simon Sinek

Whether individuals or organizations, we follow those who lead not because we have to, but because we want to. We follow those who lead not for them, but for ourselves.

Inspiring Quotes From Simon Sinek

The challenge of the unknown future is so much more exciting than the stories of the accomplished past.
Simon Sinek

I know there’s a difference between being successful and feeling successful. And if you ask me if I feel successful, the honest answer is ‘not yet.’
Simon Sinek

Most years, if you were to ask me how much I make, the genuine answer is that I have no clue. I usually find out the answer to that question once a year, at tax time, when my accountant tells me.
Simon Sinek

Some would argue that you’re as successful as the company you keep. Certainly, there is a connection between our friends and who we are.
Simon Sinek

Sometimes spending time with someone who is perceived as ‘successful’ can make us feel less successful.
Simon Sinek

In this age of connectedness, words like ‘network,’ ‘community’ and even ‘friends’ no longer mean what they used to. Networks don’t exist on LinkedIn. A community is not something that happens on a blog or on Twitter. And a friend is more than someone whose online status you check.
Simon Sinek

A friend is an emotional bond, just like friendship is a human experience.
Simon Sinek

The strong bond of friendship is not always a balanced equation; friendship is not always about giving and taking in equal shares. Instead, friendship is grounded in a feeling that you know exactly who will be there for you when you need something, no matter what or when.
Simon Sinek

Famous Quotes on Leadership from Simon Sinek

There is a difference between vulnerability and telling people everything about yourself. Vulnerability is a feeling. Telling everyone about yourself is just facts and details.
Simon Sinek

Pilots, to a large degree, are like salesmen. They have to be confident to be good at their jobs. They have to practice relentlessly and plan out all the scenarios of the things that could happen when they’re out there. Nothing is more important than preparation. They are also mighty competitive, both as individuals and as squadrons.
Simon Sinek

Pilots have their names painted just beneath the canopy of their aircraft. This gives the pilot a sense of ownership for his or her jet. What’s more, like cars, each aircraft has its own personality, so it’s important for a pilot to get to know and love his aircraft.
Simon Sinek

Spending time with the military certainly lends itself to some remarkable experiences, and I’ve been privileged to have had my share.
Simon Sinek

The lives we live are a bit of a straight-hair vs. curly-hair thing. We often want what we don’t have. In reality, it’s not about better or worse; it’s just perception.
Simon Sinek

My sister made certain choices about the life she wanted. Those choices include a steady job, a husband, and children. But balance and stability come at a cost. It is harder for her to be spontaneous. It is harder to just up and leave.
Simon Sinek

Any parent who tells their kids that they can’t attend a school play or go to a soccer match because they have to work is kidding themselves. It’s OK to miss a game or two or performance here and there, but it’s not all right to miss the majority of them.
Simon Sinek

Insightful Simon Sinek Quotes on Success

I never imagined working with CEOs, congressmen, or the military, yet I make regular visits to the Pentagon, stop by the Capitol now, and then and sit down with leaders of all kinds of companies.
Simon Sinek

Some people are born good-looking. Some have the gift of gab. And some are lucky enough to be born smarter than the rest of us. Whether we like it or not, Mother Nature does not dole these characteristics out evenly.
Simon Sinek

To spend more money, you have to have more money, but time is fixed and we all have the same amount to spare. How we choose to spend it can make a significant difference in the impact we have in our careers or in the world.
Simon Sinek

Spending too much time focused on others’ strengths leaves us feeling weak. Focusing on our own strengths is what, in fact, makes us strong.
Simon Sinek

The only time I waste is time I spend doing something that, in my gut, I know I shouldn’t. If I choose to spend time playing video games or sleeping in, then it’s time well spent, because I chose to do it. I did it for a reason – to relax, to decompress, or to feel good, and that was what I wanted to do.
Simon Sinek

Leadership is a way of thinking, a way of acting, and, most importantly, a way of communicating.
Simon Sinek

Notoriously outspoken, his sentences always punctuated with profanities, General George S. Patton was the epitome of what a leader should be like – or so he thought. Patton believed a leader should look and act tough, so he cultivated his image and his personality to match his philosophy.
Simon Sinek

Every one of us has the capacity to lead.
Simon Sinek

Great leaders don’t need to act tough. Their confidence and humility serve to underscore their toughness.
Simon Sinek

Simon Sinek

Simon Sinek

Though there are lessons that can be learned about becoming a great leader, it must exist inherently in the bellies of those who lead.
Simon Sinek

You’ll never see the president carry his own luggage, and why? Because even though we know he has luggage, it would reduce his stature if he was too much like us. We need to think of our leaders as being above us, even though they must still relate to us.
Simon Sinek

Like a good parent can’t also be his child’s best friend, a leader with authority requires some separation from subordinates.
Simon Sinek

I don’t enjoy eating humble pie; it never tastes good. But I do appreciate it when it happens.

Simon Sinek

Panic causes tunnel vision. Calm acceptance of danger allows us to more easily assess the situation and see the options.
Simon Sinek

One of the best paradoxes of leadership is a leader’s need to be both stubborn and open-minded. A leader must insist on sticking to the vision and stay on course to the destination. But he must be open-minded during the process.
Simon Sinek

No matter when or where, always bring your ‘A’ game, because you never know when it will open doors for you.
Simon Sinek
