“Rather than study, practice, and learn the habits, behaviors, and ethics that must be embodied in order to reach their chief aims in life, most people adjust their aims to fit their current habits, behaviors, and ethics.”
– Kirkland Tibbels
“Kirkland is one of the most engaging, thought and action provoking speakers I have seen. He is very articulate, has an excellent sense of humor and really knows how to keep an audience on their toes. If you have the opportunity to participate in a conference that Kirkland is speaking at or to engage him as a speaker for your organization, I would make it happen.”
