Quote of the Day | Samantha Power

He who fights every war fights none. Develop a mastery of a specific challenge. Focus. Learn a language, or how to fund-raise, or to write. Have skills that you can use to help people, not just the abstract goal of ‘I want to help people.’

My Commentary: Over the next few days, I am going to share a few quotes from the wonderfully inspirational ladies that were named as Glamour Magazine’s Women of the Year for 2014. This first one I’ve decided to share is from Samantha Power, the United States Ambassador to the United Nations. I love what she’s said about learning to choose your battles and focusing on a specific goal. It’s great to say that you want to help people, but you can’t make an impact if you don’t utilize a skill you have, or learn a new skill in order to be able to actually do something to help. When setting goals, they should be specific, not abstract…Unless you want to become an abstract artist!
