Living by the Golden Dozen By Tom Hopkins

Tom Hopkins, Author and Sales TrainerHere’s the best way I’ve ever found to pull the best performance out of yourself. It’s an extremely simple method. Not easy, simple. First, hang copies of these twelve words where you’ll see them at work, in your car, and at your home base:

I MUST DO THE MOST PRODUCTIVE THING POSSIBLE AT EVERY GIVEN MOMENT.

Now comes the important part:

Dedicate yourself to living that declaration.

It doesn’t change anything to look at those words once in a while and think, “That’s what I’m going to start doing just as soon as I can get myself together.” If you really want to achieve, start living by those dozen words now.

How To Get More Work Done In A Day By Zig Ziglar

Zig ZiglarHow do you achieve employment security in a world where there is no employment security? I start with a question: Do you consider yourself to be honest and at least reasonably intelligent? Okay. As an honest, intelligent person, do you, as a general rule, get about twice as much work done on the day before you go on vacation as you normally get done?

Now I am going to ask you a long question, so stay with me all the way through. If we can figure out why and learn how and repeat it every day without working any longer or any harder, does it make sense that we will be more valuable to ourselves, our company, our family and our community?

How to Motivate Yourself When You are Completely Up Against It!

How To Rate Your Clients And Win By Nido Qubein

It’s hard to build the right kind of business with the wrong clientele.

Maybe you’re like many salespeople I know who are unhappy with their present client base, but who don’t know how to change the situation. They’d like to upgrade, but they’re not sure what upgrading means for them. They’d like clients who are more profitable to serve, but they’re not sure what kind of clients that would be. They want to attract steadier clients but they don’t know how to go about it.

Happiness as a Priority By Richard Carlson

Richard Carlson, Author of Don't Sweat the Small StuffIt’s always been interesting to me that the average person (go ahead and ask them), spends ten times (or more) the amount of time watching television than he or she does even considering happiness.

In fact, in one pole that I conducted, not a single person out of more than 30 people admitted to spending even one second thinking about how they might go about becoming happier!

17 Words That Changed My Life Forever! By Jerry Clark

I remember several years back I heard something that changed my life forever. Up until that point I had been struggling through life – doing everything the hard way. I couldn’t figure out why my life wasn’t going the way I felt it should be.

I saw some people going through life effortlessly and seemingly with less tension and frustration while I was wondering if I could ever straighten out the mess my life had turned out to be. I was behind on my dreams, my promises, and my bills.

The Great Challenge of Life By Jim Rohn

Jim Rohn - Speaker and AuthorHere’s the great challenge of life – You can have more than you’ve got because you can become more than you are.

I have found that income seldom will exceed your own personal development. Once in a while income takes a lucky jump, but unless you grow out to where it is it will go back to where you are.

Somebody once said if you took all the money in the world and divided it among everyone equally, it would soon be back in the same pockets. However, you can have more because you can become more.

5 Rules for Being a Great Leader – Here’s the Short List

A very smart man recently told me that being a leader is not about the position or role, but about the action and goal. Great ones set out to make a difference, to inspire greatness in others, and to eventually create more leaders. They show rather than tell. They give credit and take responsibility.

These are the 5 things that great leaders do differently.

1. Let Go of Control

Believe it or not, great leaders understand that not everything is in their power. They also know and accept that their knowledge is limited. Even when it comes to tough decisions, the best ones realize that delegating responsibility and empowering others to learn is the smartest trick in the CEO book.
