To lead, you must first die in your mind. Let go of life, and embrace it!!

Video game quotes to motivate and inspire!
As I thought, you have the power of the Hero inside you.
– Princess Zelda
Being the hero is something we all get a chance to do when we play video games. In life, we do not always feel so heroic. But it does not have to be that way. Being a hero is about mindset, beliefs, behaviors, and actions.
Being a hero is not something that you must wait for, complete a degree to obtain, or have a certain type of job to receive. Being a hero is something we all can do. It’s not always glamorous, and it seldom receives the attention it should, but we can all be a hero to someone else.
The thing about true heroes, is they are selfless. There are a lot of things that you can do to be a hero, but ultimately, you must do something for someone else.
Speak up. Stand up.
Take action. Stand firm.
Being a hero is not easy and it probably will be uncomfortable. It can also be lonely at times. But in the end, it is worth it for the difference you will make in the world around you and in the lives of others.
Who will you be a hero for today?

“Looks like all the time spent playing video games has paid off.”
I miss fun movies like I miss arcades. Thankfully, Pixels has a healthy dose of fun, laughs, and arcade nostalgia. A perfect Summer movie it’s lighthearted, comical, and serves as a love letter to those of us who grew up when the latest game was in the arcade, and DLC was not even a glimmer in a developer’s eye.

I’ve got all the time in the world…
– Popful Mail
Time is funny – it spends itself, regardless if you plan to use it or not. So how are you using your time?
Are you always in a hurry, or do you have a sense of ease?
When is the last time that you thought to yourself “I have all the time in the world?”
I personally can’t remember thinking a thought along those lines in over five years.
Then again, maybe you are waiting. Feeling stuck. If that is you, then here is what you can do in the meantime.

Time flows like a river and history repeats…
Perhaps you have heard the saying “there is nothing new under the sun.”
While it seems that the next “new thing” is on everyone’s mind, it is funny how often we are just excited about another way of expressing something that is already in existence.
Life is seasonal. There are the seasons where we spend time planting – working hard, hustling to make our dreams become a reality – but then we experience hot summers or cold winter where the harvest feels so far away.
Where ever you find yourself today, remember that it is only a season.
If it is a good time, then enjoy it, but prepare and save for difficult times.
If you are in a hard season, take comfort in knowing that things may soon change, and the sun will shine again, bringing with it Spring and new life.
What season are you in now? How are you making the most of it?
Each Wednesday, stop by for more inspirational video game quotes about life and leadership.
Teams are an essential part of success in organizations, large and small. Are you a manager leading a team of 9 or less employees? I know exactly how challenging it can be to build and maintain a team this size. The larger the team, the more complex it becomes to manage. For smaller teams, I look to one of my favorite turn based strategy games: Final Fantasy Tactics.
If you do nothing, you will lose nothing. A craven way to live… If you can really call that life. I, for one, cannot.
