A Quote by Paramahansa Yogananda on success, needs, life, dominant purpose, objective, and service

The things you need in life are those that will help you to fulfill your dominant purpose.  Things you may want but not need may lead you aside from that purpose.  It is only by making everything serve your main objective that success is attained.

Paramahansa Yogananda (1893 - 1952)

A Quote by Barack Obama on ambition, greed, potential, purpose, success, service, and self

Focusing your life solely on making a buck shows a certain poverty of ambition.  It asks too little of yourself. ... Because it's only when you hitch your wagon to something larger than yourself that you realize your true potential.

Barack Obama

A Quote by Bill George on customers, clients, and service

An attitude that leaders serve customers first is especially vital to sustaining success. Employees are only empowered by serving customers. They’re not motivated by getting the stock price up, cutting the budget, or increasing the earnings. They don’t see tangible rewards from succeeding by those metrics, even if you make them shareholders. They get turned on about customers. In a Starbucks store, the barista gets excited about creating an environment that’s fun for the customer. I was at Starbucks earlier this morning and saw a barista greet a customer by saying, “Oh, Rick, nice to see you. Do you want the Rick special?” Rick comes there every morning because he has a relationship with that Starbucks employee.

A Quote by julie sarah powell on karma yoga, no one, no self, self realization, self, one, agenda, service, life, and thanks

Life all through has become a consistent karma yoga session. There is no-one who requires thanks for the service and there is no-one who is getting the benefit of going against the usual selfish, self-serving, immature, self-gratifying, agenda ridden movement of the Self or mindbody package. It is just service because there is no other. It could be seen as the most selfish act of all, because it is known that there is only this One. But in actuality there is no self or sense of the person, therefore only others are considered.
