Darren Hardy is an American author, keynote speaker, advisor, and former publisher of SUCCESS magazine. Hardy is a New York Times best-selling author, who wrote The Entrepreneur Roller Coaster, Living Your Best Year Ever and The Compound Effect.

What are good quotes from The Entrepreneur Roller Coaster?

“Knowledge is not power. That’s a myth. It is the potential for power, but it is not power itself. It’s not what you learn or what you know; it’s what you do with what you know and learn.”

“Are you willing to make the difficult choices? To do what’s unpopular? It’s not easy, but remember this: When people are calling you out and calling you names, they’re really just calling you a leader.”

“Don’t miss the point. Spend your day pursuing the things you want said in your eulogy.” @DarrenHardy #JoinTheRide”

“As Jim Rohn put it to me, “Don’t let your learning lead to knowledge, or you’ll become a fool. Let your learning lead to action, and you can become wealthy. There’s nothing more pitiful than a guy who is smart and broke.”

“A good question to ask yourself before doing anything you think you fear is, “If I do this, am I going to die?” If the answer is no, then your fear is made up, grossly overdramatic, and it should have no power over you.”

“Look, if you’re going to get better, you have to push yourself. If you push yourself, you’re going to fall. If you’re not falling, you’re not pushing. Falling is part of getting better.”

“Courage is not the absence of fear—it’s feeling the fear and proceeding anyway. As Nelson Mandela said, “I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.”

“Effective sales is about finding a perceived need and helping someone fulfill it.”

“Most people are operating at a fraction of what they are really capable of. As the leader you will need to find the unique seeds of greatness buried in each member of your team. You need to remove the weeds (fears, inhibitions, uncertainties), water and fertilize (invest in their personal growth), and provide the sunshine (your positive attitude, belief in them, and example) to transform that miraculous seed inside them into a bountiful harvest of results and productivity.”

“It’s easy to be distracted by the job of growing your business. But never forget that your job as a leader is also to grow people.”

“Don’t let your learning lead to knowledge, or you’ll become a fool. Let your learning lead to action, and you can become wealthy. There’s nothing more pitiful than a guy who is smart and broke.”

“If you haven’t found something you are willing to die for, you aren’t fit to live.” —Martin Luther King Jr. #JoinTheRide”
