  • 7. Jeff Weiner: LinkedIn CEO

    LinkedIn followers: 162,510   His thoughts: "I can identify at least three clear influences that forever altered my career path. In retrospect, it's interesting to see how different the context was for each: parental advice, a passage in a book, and a persistent boss.   Despite the contrasts, all three share one thing in common—reinforcing the importance of knowing what it is you ultimately want to accomplish, and being open to allowing outside forces to help clarify, reinforce and facilitate the path to making it happen."

  • 6. Arianna Huffington: The Huffington Post president and editor-In-chief

    LinkedIn followers: 170,278 Her thoughts: "So how will President Obama's second term be different? It seems pretty clear that even though the president was reelected, this election was not a mandate for maintaining the status quo.   The people voted to reelect the incumbent, but at the same time, they voted for change."

  • 5. Tony Robbins: life coach, motivational speaker

    LinkedIn followers: 175,843   His thoughts: "Fulfilling your dreams and your ability to thrive in the areas of your life that matter most can be simplified by breakthroughs—a moment in time when the impossible becomes possible.   If anyone wants to thrive in any area of their life, they have to reach a point of breakthrough where they will not settle for anything less than extraordinary in that area."

  • 4. Mitt Romney: 2012 presidential candidate

    LinkedIn followers: 189,213   His thoughts: "The 21st century can and must be an American century. It began with terror, war, and economic calamity. It is our duty to steer it onto the path of freedom, peace, and prosperity.   The torch America carries is one of decency and hope. It is not America’s torch alone. But it is America’s duty – and honor – to hold it high enough that all the world can see its light."

  • 3. Deepak Chopra: doctor, author, spiritual teacher

    LinkedIn followers: 271,888 His thoughts: "Don't try to make stress your ally, either by toughing it out or turning your back on the problem.   The conscious choice is to recognize that modern life is a battleground of low-level stress, sometimes peaking into high stress, that will have a damaging effect over time unless you deal with everyday stressors in a consistent, effective way."

  • 2. Barack Obama: U.S. President

    LinkedIn followers: 506,445 His thoughts: "When I took office we were losing nearly 800,000 jobs a month and were mired in Iraq.   Today I believe that as a nation we are moving forward again. But we have much more to do to get folks back to work and make the middle class secure again."

  • 1. Richard Branson: Virgin Group founder

    LinkedIn followers: 1, 009,186   His thoughts: " Many a Chairman will say he looks at his company like a family and then acts in a way which makes you glad you're not related!I have always pushed Virgin companies to walk the talk on that and ensure everybody feels part of the team.   Colleagues should take care of each other, have fun, celebrate success, learn by failure, look for reasons to praise not to criticise, communicate freely and respect each other."
