Core Values

RightStaff core values image


“Think big thoughts but relish small pleasures” – H. Jackson Brown, Jr., Little Instruction Book


“I had to make my own living and my own opportunity!  But I made it!  Don’t sit down and wait for the opportunities to come.  Get up and make them!” – Madam C. J. Walker, first female self-made millionaire in America


“Between you and every goal that you wish to achieve, there is a series of obstacles, and the bigger goal, the bigger the obstacles.  Your decision to be, have and do something out of the ordinary entails facing difficulties and challenges that are out of the ordinary as well.  Sometimes your greatest asset is simply your ability to stay with it longer than anyone else.” – Brian Tracey, motivational speaker and author


“Have the courage to say no.  Have the courage to face the truth.  Do the right thing because it is right.  These are the magic keys to living your life with integrity.” – W. Clement Stone, The Success System That Never Fails

Work Ethic

“I’m a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work the more I have of it.” – Thomas Jefferson


“To have passion, to have a dream, to have a purpose in life. And there are three components to that purpose, one is to find out who you really are, to discover God, the second is to serve other human beings, because we are here to do that and the third is to express your unique talents and when you are expressing your unique talents you lose track of time.” – Deepak Chopra, author and public speaker
