Napoleon Hill got it right! "First comes thought; then organization of that thought, into ideas and plans; then transformation of those plans into reality. The beginning, as you will observe, is in your imagination. We've all heard it before, "If you always do what you've always done, then you'll always get what you always got." In other words, you can't solve the problem with the same thinking that created it. Such is the case with climate change, carbon, water, and other pressing world concerns.  So, if our traditional thinking and approaches aren't cutting it, then what will?   A change in perspective.  Sustainability is that perspective.  When we make a shift in our thinking, we generate different results in our outer world.  As Norman Vincent Peale said, "Change your thoughts and you change your world.'       A large portion of our sustainability consulting practice is creating receptivity to business sustainability. That involves a mindset change across all individuals within an organization. Following is a list of quotes to reflect upon from the context of nature, sustainable business, leadership and eco actions.  Click here to read inspiring sustainability quotes.
