SGK Celebrates International Women’s Day 2018

Posted By: SGK March 08, 2018

Now, more than ever, it takes courage to motivate and unite friends, colleagues and whole communities to think, act and be gender inclusive.

SGK and Schawk are excited to announce that our Chicago location will be hosting this month’s Creative Mornings — March 30, 8:30am - 10:00am CDT.

This month’s theme is COURAGE — here’s what courage means to us and to others that inspire us:

“Courage means taking risks + stepping outside of your comfort zone in order to grow.”

“It takes a great deal of courage to stand up to your enemies, but even more to stand up to your friends.” – J.K. Rowling

“When you choose to be authentic to who you are it takes courage to first express it. Then it takes courage to deal with the reactions of others. Negative reactions will take valor but positive come with sacred responsibility. Since you are now a leader inspiring others into movement.”

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal; it is the courage to continue that counts.” – Winston Churchill

“Courage is being your Real Self — and if you don’t know who that it, committing to figuring it out.”

“No matter how many obstacles, disappointment, or adversities  — you persevere.”

“Courage is persistence and accepting that often first attempts will fail but having the confidence to keep trying.”

“Say, you need to stop and take a moment. You find you can barely breathe in. You’re maybe choking on your fear. Next time, breathe out slowly and fully. Your body will naturally breathe back in. Exhale fear, inhale courage.”

“Courage is defending what you believe is the right thing to do when everyone around you tells you that you’re wrong but deep down you just know you’re doing the right thing.”

“Courage is standing up for what you know it right — even when everyone around you says you’re crazy.”

“Always believe in yourself. Do this and no matter where you are, you will have nothing to fear.” – Hiyao Miyazaki

“To ask for help when I know I need it.”

“Courage is fire and bullying is smoke.” – Benjamin Disraeli

“Blindly believing in yourself despite all evidence to the contrary.”

“To know it’s ok to disagree with someone and it be ok they disagree with you.”

“Courage isn’t having the strength to go on, it is going on when you don’t have the strength.” – Napoleon Bonaparte

“When life puts a brick wall in front of you, courage helps you go over it or through it instead of nothing at all.”

“He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life.” – Muhammad Ali

“Courage is taking out a massive soul crushing student loan and having the faith to believe you wont end up on the street.”

“Singing opera at the top of your lungs for all to hear.”

“The most fundamental aggression to ourselves, the most fundamental harm we can do to ourselves, is to remain ignorant by not having the courage and the respect to look at ourselves honestly and gently.” – Pema Chodron

“You get in life what you have the courage to ask for.” – Oprah

“Leap and the net will appear.” – John Burroughs
