Quotes

  • “Outstanding leaders go out of their way to boost the self esteem of their personnel. If people believe in themselves it s amazing what they can accomplish.” ~ Sam Walton
  • “What we guard against around here is people saying, ‘Let’s think about it.’ We make a decision. Then we act on it.” ~ Sam Walton
  • “As an old-time small-town merchant, I can tell you that nobody has more love for the heyday of the smalltown retailing era than I do. That’s one of the reasons we chose to put our little Wal-Mart museum on the square in Bentonville. It’s in the old Walton’s Five and Dime building, and it tries to capture a little bit of the old dime store feel. But I can also tell you this: if we had gotten smug about our early success, and said, “Well, we’re the best merchant in town,” and just kept doing everything exactly the way we were doing it, somebody else would have come along and given our customers what they wanted, and we would be out of business today.”  ~ Sam Walton
  • “High expectations are the key to everything.”  ~ Sam Walton
  • “Luck is a dividend of sweat. The more you sweat, the luckier you get.” ~ Ray Kroc, Founder of McDonald’s
  • “The speed of the leader is the speed of the gang”  ~ Mary Kay Ash, Founder of Mary Kay Cosmetics
  • “Don’t find fault, find a remedy”  ~ Henry Ford, Founder of Ford Motor Company
