“Regardless of where you were born or what your financial position in life, the power to affect your own future lies within your own hands. Your present circumstances don’t determine where you can go; they merely determine where you start.” ~ Nido Qubein
Every once in awhile, you meet someone whose perspective changes yours…whose way of looking at the world challenges you to be a better person.
Dr. Nido Qubein is one of those people. His personal story is an inspiration in itself. He arrived in this country as a teenage immigrant with little knowledge of English and 50 dollars in his pocket. But, what he did have was a belief that if you work hard enough and smart enough, you can make good things happen in your life. And that’s exactly what he did.
Now the president of High Point University in High Point, North Carolina, Dr. Qubein is also Chairman of Great Harvest Bread Company and director of several New York Stock Exchange companies. He’s been an entrepreneur, consultant, author and one of the most sought-after speakers in the country.
In his latest book, Seven Choices for Success and Significance, Dr. Qubein shares his insights on the choices he made for success.
“Success is not a matter of luck, not an accident of birth, not a reward for virtue. The most successful people I know are the ones who have something to do, somewhere to be and someone to love.
No one is responsible for your success or your joy. You must search for it and be in a continual state of earning it. To merely succeed is not an end in itself. You must use your success to impact other people…to impact the world…to live life from the inside out. It all starts with the choices you make—they determine the person you will become.”
