A Quote by Lewis Carroll on denial, mindset, and mood

She's in that state of mind that she wants to deny something -only she doesn't know what to deny!

Lewis Carroll (1832 - 1898)

A Quote by Jeff Immelt on mindset, customers, and markets

I think there's a need for somewhat of a mindset change. We need to have a consistent external focus. We've always had the research labs. We've always had the resources to be innovative, and we've been innovative in a number of businesses. But, in any big company, you have to constantly push people to look at markets and customers, rather than look internally at themselves.

A Quote by Stephen Shapiro on tools, mindset, innovation, and creativity

Tools are great. But giving people tools, without first changing their mindset is useless.

People buy more weight loss books/diets (tools) than all other books, yet people are fatter than ever. Why? Most diets do not address the psychological reasons (mindset) for eating.

The same holds true for innovation.

Do not train your employees on creativity techniques or bring in innovation software until you have addressed your underlying cultural issues (the mindset).

A Quote by Lena Lees on kuan yin quotations, diva, mindset, environmental, everything is spirit, and divinely human

"The indigenous tribes are the most powerful as many of them are so in harmony with nature as to be really, really divinely human. They're so in touch with their humanity that they're totally in tune with their Diva nature. They know that human/nature harmony is the crux of spirituality. Humans say they're better than each other. And they say they're better than nature. It's ludicrous to compare the intelligence of other living creatures to human intelligence. Plants have enormous intelligences and spirituality. However, the "better than" mindset greatly contributes to the ongoing environmental destruction.The earth is trying to teach humans that everything is spirit. Eventually, humans will learn. It's just another way to understand divinity. Spirit works through one's own humanity and the earth. Everything here on earth is for the divine evolution of all energies. Whereas the word "beings" so often refers only to humans, I use the term "energies" as it encompasses all living things on the planet."
