Bob Moawad was the owner of Edge Learning Institute and original creator of the Increasing Human Effectiveness program, now offered by Legacy Business Cultures. Not only was Bob an engaging and entertaining speaker and performer, but also an inspirational writer on the subject of human effectiveness and what it takes to succeed in life. See Bob in action below with a sample clip from the IHE video series.

The following are a collection of inspirational quotes collected from his speaking and writing:

“Most of our limitations are self-imposed. Roger Bannister was the first human to run a sub-four-minute mile – a barrier that was previously deemed insurmountable. Immediately after Bannister proved it was “possible,” runners all over the world repeated his feat.”

“Most people don’t aim too high and miss, they aim too low and hit.”

“When we set exciting worth-while goals for ourselves, they work in two ways: we work on them, and they work on us.”

“Set exciting personal goals. You will live longer.”

“Fall in love with what you do; believe in what you’re doing; strive to continuously improve.”

“Attitudes are contagious. Do you want people around you to catch yours?”

“You can’t make footprints in the sands of time if you’re sitting on your butt. And who wants to make buttprints in the sand of time?”

“Each day silently affirm that you are the type of person with whom you would like to spend the rest of your life.”

“If you’re too busy to help the people around you succeed, you’re too busy.”

“People are in greater need of your praise when they try and fail, than when they try and succeed.”

“Everyone appreciates being appreciated. Catch people red-handed in the act of doing something right each day – and praise them for it.”

“If you keep doing what you’ve always done, you’ll keep getting what you’ve always got…if you’re fortunate.”

“Who wants to be average? Average if that place in the middle. It’s the best of the worst, or the worst of the best.”

“Live each and every day as if it were your last – because one day you’ll be right.”
